It has been so totally busy here lately at the Hotel Thompson. We had the demolition and renovation. We had the cleaning and cleaning and more cleaning from all of that. We had new furniture and everything has been out of place – and we are *still* putting things back together. Mommy really pushed herself too much during all of this time. And THEN Bashful came home from his visit with Fozzie in Australia. That’s when all hell broke loose. Yep I said hell. HELL broke loose here at the Hotel Thompson. You don’t believe me do you? Okay I’ll tell you.
Do you remember the first time Bashful went to Australia to spend some time with Fozzie and her anipals way back in December 2013? You can read about some of that trip here. I’m talking specifically about that trip when he made a movie called Rockodile Dundee co-starring Bimby. Let’s just say that we thought some things got out of control with that
bimbo – I mean co-star Bimby.
Well upon Bashful’s return trip to Australia in December 2014, he had some problems to take care of in the deepest forms. You see, Bimby was pregnant after the making of the Rockodile Dundee movie. Shocker huh? Well she carried the baby for nine months and when Bashful returned to Australia, she said he was the rock daddy. Now you can imagine Bashful’s shock from that. BUT, can you imagine the shock of Fozzie calling me (Bashful’s daddy) and explaining (A) Bashful was now a father and (B) I was now a grandfather?! Oh dear piggy heavens – I can tell you that was one interesting phone call to say the least.
Not only was Bashful a father but Bimby was in trouble. Bimby had started hitting the bottle – hard. And she was letting herself go not taking care of the baby. So what to do huh? First things first.
Bimby went into rehab. There was long conversations about what to do and the biggest thing was to put the baby first. Of course a rock DNA was conducted just to make sure that Bashful was the father. The results came back and they verified 99.9% that Bashful was the father. Then Bashful and Bimby had a long talk about the welfare of the baby. The baby was 3 months old and Bimby decided that she didn’t want to be a mother – she was to young to settle down. And putting the best interest of the baby first, paperwork was drawn up by the attorney’s and Bashful now has custody of his son.
So everyone here at the Hotel Thompson had to get everything ready for a new baby that would be soon arriving. The nursery had to be set up, a pediarocktrician had to be lined up and of course everyone here had to be told what happened. All of the rock clan were excited to have a new baby. And I admit it. I was rather excited to be a grandfather and to see my grandchild. What would he look like? What was his name? Would he resemble us? A lot of things were going through our minds.
Then the little tyke arrived here at the Hotel Thompson. Oh my piggy heavens! It was love at first sight with all of us. The ooh’s and aaawws. WOW! So without further ado, let me introduce you to Chip. Look at him! How could we ever doubt his DNA? He is quite the chip off the old block – you think?
