Let’s ramble a bit shall we my friends? First up let’s talk about birthdays. Mom is a little blue today – in a good way though. Her baby Houdini turns the big ONE. Of course mom tells all of us anipals that we are ALL her babies which we know. And now Chip (Bashful’s son and my grandson) is almost potty trained. All of the babies are growing up so fast here at the Hotel Thompson.
Also mom has been doing this DIEt thing. Lord help us all here. Mom says she is doing things differently this time with her DIEt and she is recording everything that passes her lips in a journal on her iPhone (there’s an app for that – snorts). She tells daddy every night that you just don’t understand how many calories you are consuming until you start logging them. It has definitely been an eye opener for mom. We all tread lightly around her on this DIEt. Of course, with mom cutting back that means we here area also cutting back. See how that flows down hill? This interprets to less Animal Crackers for me and less chips for daddy throughout the day. But then mommy has to go to the worky place during the week – insert evil snorts. What she doesn’t know happens here when she is gone is a great thing.
Another happening thing here at the Hotel Thompson is the demise of mom’s laptop several months ago. Bless her heart – it was a slow death of the Toshiba. Toshiba was a great one and served years of hard work. Mom used my laptop for a while but it wasn’t the same. She complained something about piggy drool. What? It is *my* computer – rolls piggy eyes. She has been using her iPhone and iPad for Facebook and blogging but she complained about the keyboard and something about when she gets on a roll she can’t type as fast as she wants due to the lack of a ‘real’ keyboard. WOW – she is such a princess, isn’t she? Snorts
Well yesterday, a package arrived not for me but for mom. Amazing that they didn’t turn the package away because mom never gets packages. She opened it up last night. Of course, all of us anipals were right there in her lap and on the box to help out and see what it was. Hey, it’s what we do. She opened up a box and then another box inside of that box. It almost seemed like Christmas and the anticipation was killing us all. Then she struck gold – she got herself a new laptop. I think I heard angels singing but maybe that was just the television. She oohh and aaww over it while setting it up. You would have thought she was in heaven and she might have been. She was deliriously happy. And you know what – that made us all happy. Even daddy when she gave him the receipt for the bill – snorts.
Enough ramblings from this oinker. What’s going on in your part of the world? Anything funny? Anything you want to talk about and share?
Oh and one more thing – I sounded like Columbo on that didn’t I? Snorts – Love that detective. Mom told daddy last night that she wished he came with a remote control with a mute button. I’m not sure what that meant. Do you? Daddy just laughed and kept on singing and talking.

I’ve got a lot on my piggy mind lately. Nothing particular just aimless ramblings from my point of view. I do a lot of listening around the Hotel Thompson. Sometimes it’s better to listen than oink. So today I’m going to share some of those things that I’ve heard.
Mom has an ear ache. She told daddy she could hear it slushing. I’m not sure what that means but it doesn’t sound good.
Houdini got groomed this week. Now he’s walking around like he owns the place. Go figure huh?
Coming up this week is a long weekend. I’m glad. I need some extra snuggles from mom. I think she could use it too.
I’ve gotten more used to the feel of grass on my hooves. I still don’t like it but I don’t hide from it anymore. I still think of myself as more of an air conditioned piggy than a hot piggy.
There’s something big that has happened in my life. I’m hoping to share more about it next month. It’s huge. It’s been a little over a month and I’ve been adjusting to it. It’s big. Heck, we’ve all been adjusting to it here at the Hotel Thompson. Just wait until you find out about it. You’ll be thrilled too.
Mom has started that DIEt thing again. Lord help us all. She says that she needs to do it so dad can get aboard the DIEt thing. Shakes piggy head. Help me. I’m saying that now because I can tell it’s going to be rough the next couple of months.
Hemi should join that show called Fear Factor. Mom says so because he has no fear. He has been jumping around the house from shelves to couch to mom’s chaise. Of course mom gets on to him but he still does it. I heard mom tell dad that Hemi was pushing her over the edge and it was a short trip. I don’t get that because I haven’t seen any edges like that in the house.
Mouse Girl has gained weight. Maybe she needs to be put on the DIEt thing. I’m not sure. She is what did dad say, butt heavy. And of course, Houdini has the biggest crush on her. I mean huge. Houdini keeps chasing after her and you want to hear something funny. Of course, I don’t get it but mom and dad laugh hysterically when daddy says it. Every time Houdini chases Mouse Girl, dad tells Houdini, “Leave her alone Houdini. She’s too much pussy for you.” What? I don’t get it.

On October 9, 2011 I posted my very first blog with this picture of me next to a Pepsi can. It was just a couple of days that mommy had adopted and brought me home to the Hotel Thompson. Underneath this picture, I wrote:
Hello my fellow friends! I will rule that Pepsi can one day! Can’t wait to blog my adventures. Check back frequently for fun. Smooches.
And as they say, “It’s all they wrote”. I’ve been blogging every since, having fun, making great and wonderful friends and hopefully making everyone smile and laugh. It’s been a long journey through lots of ups and downs.
Others have joined my adventure from the Hotel Thompson so this blog has grown with friends.
I’ve added trivia to my blog.
I’ve added the Dear Bacon issues which are absolutely the highlight of my week. (I LOVE getting pictures and letters from everyone – thank you – you make these Dear Bacon issues so popular!).
Journalist Rocky the Squirrel keeps us aware of all of the not so known holidays of the year. He’s a great friend that hangs out in my magical back yard. He’s often found knocking on the back door of the Hotel Thompson asking for cut of nuts.
Hemi and Mouse Girl highjack my page every so often. I fuss but it’s all in great fun.
Bashful, Manny and Princess Coralena have been a great addition to the Hotel Thompson and my blog. That Bashful of mine has turned into a wonderful international rolling stone traveling every where and recording his trips here. Manny and Princess Coralena have come to live with us here and it’s so nice to hear them laughing down the halls.
And the biggest accomplishment I’ve had in two years… meeting so many wonderful and cherished friends from all over the world right here in blogville.
Without you, I would be talking to myself and well I do enough of that here at the Hotel Thompson – snorts. I don’t think I can ever express just how much *YOU* have touched this little piggies life. I guess you can say that you’ve helped my inner pig come out and play. That means the world to me my friends.
Thank you so much. Thank you for listening to my rambling, my piggy stories and adventures and stories of mom/dad. This pig has a lot more to write about!
Here’s a toast to another awesome year full of adventures!
