Texts from Bacon

Oh friends, here’s another Texts from Bacon that you can’t miss out on.  The things that are communicated here at the Hotel Thompson never stop.  It’s like living in a circus sometimes!  Hope you enjoy.  My texts are in blue and mom’s are in white.  Have a great weekend – I can almost see the light from here on the couch!

Shopping Around the World and Bacon’s Show and Tell – Reminder

Hello sweet friends – 

Don’t forget about our important dates next week – after the holidays.  Keep these in mind while you enjoy your holiday 🙂 ❤


Shopping Around the World

Shopping Around the World is hosted by us and our friend Fozziemom.  This month it is scheduled for November 30th – after the holiday so we can all make plans.  Since it is the Thanksgiving holidays here in the States, this month we will focus on Thanksgiving foods.  So, you can post appetizers, side dishes, salads, soups, main entrees or desserts.  What is something that you look forward to once a year at Thanksgiving.  I mean yes we can have it throughout the year but having it at Thanksgiving screams the holiday?  This gives you a wide variety of foods you can come up with.  Fix whatever your dish is, take pictures and post it with recipes and prices on November 30th on your blog.  Remember to link back to my blog posting so people can see yours.  This is a wonderful way to (1) meet new friends in blogville and (2) get some wonderful recipes.  And I’ll admit it.  This piggy has been known to visit on these days and lick the computer screen at some of your awesome dishes.  I’m just sayin’ – some of pictures look out of this world!!


Bacon’s Show and Tell

To me, what better time of the year to share some embarrassing stories from Thanksgiving.  Did you gather as a family for dinner and someone do something hilarious?  Did you have a mishap and spill your plate or cut the turkey in a strange way?  Go ahead my friends, let’s talk about something funny our humans do or did during their Thanksgiving holidays.  I know these stories will be good!  Bacon’s Show and Tell is scheduled for November 29th due to the holiday.  Remember to do your blog and link back to my blog so we can all see what everyone shares.  Thanks my friend – can’t wait for some great stories.

What’s it Like to Have a Pig

Last week, I did a blog posting on Facts about Moi. If you missed it, please go and take a look.  These were some of the things that people have asked mom/dad over the years.  Today, I wanted mom to write a blog posting about some facts about me.  I hope you find it interesting – take it away mom.

Thanks Bacon my cute little oinker 🙂

Having a pig is awesome.  But there are some cons and pros about having any kind of animal under your care.  We like to say that Bacon owns us and not we own a pig.  Trust me, that’s how it works here at the Hotel Thompson and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Pros: Pigs have a great sense of time.  In all the years Bacon has lived here, I do not need to set my alarm clock.  Bacon knows exactly what time to get me up in the mornings for breakfast.  His timing is so good, that he even lets us sleep in a little on the weekend.  He is the best sous chef I have ever had.  When I cook dinner at night, he often comes into the kitchen and sits on the floor waiting to help.  Help with what you ask?  Well, peeling potatoes for one.  He absolutely LOVES to eat the part I peel. Salad making is another one – the boy loves his lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes.  And cabbage – oh my!  Every since I was kid, I love to chew on the core of the cabbage.  Now Bacon loves it too.  Bacon gives so much love – he’s warm – he’s sweet and we both love to snuggle on the sofa together at the end of a very hard day and watch some television.  That’s another thing – he loves his shows on television.  He knows key words like sit, bedtime, snuggle, kitchen, dinner, breakfast, go to your room.  He’s very smart and it shows.  AND he is very protective of me.  If he doesn’t know you, he will get in between you and me and stand guard.  If you get closer to me, he will even snort at you.  I call him my protect pig.

Cons: He is pig-headed.  Now you know where that phrase comes from.  When he wants something, he wants it yesterday.  He can put those breaks on and he will not move.  If he wants something, he will put his head down and torpedo his way to what he wants.  He is very strong and has knocked me down a couple of times.  Of course, he tries to make up for afterwards.  He *hates* to be ignored.  That is the worse thing that you can do to my sweet guy.  You can not board a pig here in our area.  So you have to arrange for a sitter in advance.  And then you worry are they taking care of him like I would.  He loves his schedule too and we feed him three times a day.  My husband tells me that I cook for him more than him – LOL.  He eats piggy chow but he also eats plenty of salads, omelets and from time to time piggy pancakes.
