National Inane Answering Machine Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

All important announcement – today is National Inane Answering Machine Day and is always on January 30th.  It is actually a copyrighted holiday?  Negative that is not a typing error, it is “Inane”.  You don’t even know what that means do you?  Go ahead and admit it, Bacon’s mother had to look it up too.  Poor kid needs to advance her vocabulary besides talking gibberish to that oinker all day.  I went ahead and copied this from the dictionary for you.  You’re welcome!

“inane”, Pronunciation: \i-ˈnān\
Function: adjective
Inflected Form(s): inan·er; inan·est
Etymology: Latin inanis
Date: 1662
1 : empty, insubstantial
2 : lacking significance, meaning, or point : silly
synonyms see insipid
— inane·ly adverb
— inane·ness \-ˈnān-nəs\ noun

With that being said and us knowing what ‘inane’ means now, let’s continue on this grand holiday of “National Inane Answering Message Day”.  First lets clarify the meaning of an “inane” answering machine messages. We all get them and they drive us crazy which for some cases is a short trip – HA!  An inane message is a senseless or meaningless message, or a prank call. Or, it could be an insane message.

So, National Inane Answering Message Day is a day to end those numerous, annoying insane answering machine messages. We all *know* that’s not going to be accomplished in one day but we can try, can’t we?  So for today, no prank calls!  Chatters and laughs.

Happy Birthday Bashful!!

 

 OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since Bashful came to live with me here at the Hotel Thompson?  This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww.  Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed? 

And to think of all of the places he  has been in the world?  He’s going to need extra pages in his passport book soon ❤

So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on Bashful’s New Orleans adventures. Every time I turn around, that little fella is hopping into my human mommy’s purse and they’re headed out the door. I finally got those two to sit down long enough to tell me where they’ve been and to share a few photos. Wow. They’ve been busy. A couple of weekends ago, Bashful joined both of my humans at Armstrong Park for the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival–New Orleans’ Premier Brass Band Showcase, which is presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. In New Orleans, we love a festival. There’s at least one every month–sometimes one each weekend of the month–and they usually revolve around tasty food and great music.

This festival features gumbo of every sort you can imagine: creole gumbo, seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage gumbo, even vegan gumbo and…

Mom took Bashful to his fight earlier this week for his next host family.  Where in the world will Bashful end up at?  Any guesses?

UPDATE:  Mom just received a phone call that Bashful has landed and is at his host family.  Stay tuned ❤

Paw Time with Houdini


Let’s talk food my friends – barks!  Who doesn’t like food, right?  Well last week mom started something new here at the Hotel Thompson.  Something amazing that all of us anipals and daddy including are enjoying.  What you ask?  She is cooking more!  Can you do a little happy dance?

One night this week, mom fixed homemade Chinese food – it included stir fry rice, noodles, snow peas, carrots and little pieces of steak.  Can you say delicious?  And of course this little puppy wanted a taste – who wouldn’t?

So I begged asked mom for a taste.  After pitiful staring she enjoyed some, she shared with me.  And of course not just by putting some in a bowl.  No, of course not.  She fed me with chopsticks.  Daddy said I was spoiled like that.  All I know is that mom clicked those magical sticks and I opened my mouth in anticipation of what was to come.  And wonderful food it was!

So my friends.  Have you had Chinese food?  Barks with puppy laughter.  Have an awesome week dear friends!
