Dear Bacon – You talk about having your own room. All 8 of us have to share a room and this is our kitty bunk beds. It gets kind of crowded and you really can’t stretch out… let alone snuggling up to any kind of a blanket or pillow. We even heard that the kitties at the Hotel Thompson sleep in a ‘real’ bed. Is that true?? Signed Eight is Enough
Dear Eight is Enough – WOW – that is a tall kitty bunk bed there. I would think that stretching out on the floor would be more freedom than confined to that little compartment. Is it first come, first served or is everyone assigned their ‘bed’? Make the best out of it my little purr things! Enjoy the moments in life where you can. P.S. Yes the purr things here get to sleep with mom and dad on their select comfort bed. Rotten aren’t they? … like I don’t know nothing about being rotten… snort.
Dear Bacon – I hear the “V” word… you know “vet”. I tried to hide but the master found me like this. What do you think I should do next time? Signed Hide N Seek
Dear Hide N Seek – Well first of all, next time hide under something that you can actually ‘hide’ underneath. Just because you can’t see your master doesn’t mean your master can’t see you. Follow me? But hey on the other hand, that is really a cute picture of your captain quarters – snort – LOL.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes the best things in life are when we sit back, relax and reflect on life. You know, don’t sweat the small stuff. I have a favorite rock that I like to sun myself on and reflect.
It helps me to keep stress free and ponder my life in general. Signed Pondering Ribbit
Dear Pondering Ribbit – WOW – Well you do look relaxed my green friend. I tried meditation in my bedroom. I just couldn’t get my mind to quit focusing on running and eating though.
Perhaps I will try again. Stay green my friend.
Dear Bacon – I’m the sheriff here in these parts. Bark Bark – you think I fit the part? I may be small but I’m a force to be reckoned with! Signed Walking Small with a Big Bark
Dear Walking Small with a Big Bark – I think you can possibly get away with it – you are just too cute with that hat on!!
And those big brown eyes, yeah, I would let you arrest me. Snort.
P.S. I’ve seen some political people on the television. I think you have a shot just like everyone else! Be firm but be fair – that should be your motto.
Dear Bacon – My master is always telling me, “Safety first”. Every time we go on a road trip, she straps me in. Other dogs don’t get strapped in. Signed Wanna be Free
Dear Wanna be Free – If all of the other barky things jumped off a cliff, would you? If they all got taken to the doggy jail…AKA pound… would you want to go too? Your human cares for you with all of their heart and doesn’t want anything to happen to you. I say go with it little man. Enjoy the extra treatment. P.S. I’ll try to hide this picture from my mom. The next thing I know, she will be buckling Houdini into a carseat like this.

Dear Bacon – ssss safety first is what I always hiss. My human friend sss says the same thing. You always buckle upsss the important things in your life when you get into the car. Anipalsssss are no different. Remember that my friend – ssss safety first. Signed Mr. Slithers
Dear Mr. Slithers – Gulps – of course. I agree strongly with you safety first. That’s why I would *always* let you ride shot gun up front with the human – always. In fact, I would go as far as saying I would always let you go with the human period. I’ll just pass on this ride. I get car sick at times anyway. Safe travels to you and yours. Gulps and slowly backs out of this letter.
Dear Bacon – My human must die. There it is. Plain and simple. He put this stupid contraption on me and now I look like a cat. Really?! A cat? That’s as creative as you can get my human? Just wait until you go to sleep and you will go to sleep sometime. Signed Jax
Dear Jax – Oh my piggy heavens. Dude, your owner is very brave to dress you up like that and then to take you out in public and THEN to take your picture. Clicking my tongue. Yes you are right. He must pay tonight.
Dear Bacon – That’s it. We are ready. It’s bad enough that we have cats chasing us around the house and inside of the house. Now when we go out in the field, squirrels are trying to get us too. This means war. Bring on the hamster troops. Cats and squirrels are going down! Signed Troop End of Destruction
Dear Troop End of Destruction – Pardon me sir but I must ask. Where do you find those cute little guns and fatigues?? Ok, I know you are trying to look tough but squeals with piggy excitement. You are just way too cute to be making any havoc out there in the killing fields. Can’t you solve this war without tragedies? Come on. I bet ya’ll can talk this out in a peaceful manner. Sure you can! I have faith. I can call Dr. Phil for you. I’m sure he can get you on the show.
Dear Bacon – There I was playing with Mr. Spock and all of a sudden his leg started to spontaneously shoot out white stuffing. I’m not sure what happened but I knew we needed a medic STAT. That’s where I jumped in with my scrubs and got to work patching up Mr. Spock. He didn’t feel a thing during the operation. And look, his leg will be fine in a couple of days. It was a close call indeed Mr. Spock. Signed Dr. Kirk
Dr. Kirk – I know that was a tough call my friend. Thank goodness nothing beamed you up. That would have been a tight predicament to be in and oh thank goodness you were on call for the surgery. Can you imagine how Mr. Spock would look if you had to amputate his little leg? The horror!
Dear Bacon – I have got to quick partying all night with the dogs in the neighborhood. I’m not sure what people are putting in their commodes anymore. We all went out for a few drinks and the next thing you know, I woke up like this. Of course my friends took pictures to blackmail me with in the future. I’m not sure what happened or what her name is. I need help. Really I do. It was a ruff situation this morning doing the walk of shame. Signed Fido
Dear Fido – Oh dude. I would say you need therapy. You gotta stop drinking the strange stuff in commodes. You just never know what might be in there. You don’t want a repeat of this night. Oh my goodness. Are you going to call her at least?

Welcome my friends to my second installment of Journey to Israel. This is a trip that my Aunt made over the Christmas holidays. If you missed the first part of getting to Israel, check it out here. Part of the adventure was getting there. Today, I bring you some pictures of Israel and the journey my Aunt took.
For some reason when I pictured where we would be staying while we were in Israel, I never thought modern or updated – LOL. Go figure huh? Well, I was happily impressed with our lodging. This is the building with balconies that overlook the city. See the beautiful clouds – the temperature during our stay at Christmas time was around the 70’s – perfect weather for exploring the lands.
This is another picture overlooking where we stayed – you can see more of the city in it. You feel old country – you kind of settle into a different world from what you have been accustomed all of your life. Such an adventure that we couldn’t wait to go exploring in the city. And you hear nightmare stories of safety. Personally, we didn’t feel at all afraid of anywhere we went. The people were open and friendly – always there with suggestions of what to eat or what to see.
One of the first adventures we went on, it had been raining and we stumbled upon the glorious rainbow picture showing a bus coming down the street. What better way to say welcome to Israel? And as you can imagine, there are a lot of ‘touristy’ areas but there are also a lot of areas that showed how old the land really was, how mountainous and vast some areas are.
Here are some pictures of some food that we tried and a coke can – do you recognize anything?
