Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 3

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


Snorts – OMP – the Hotel Thompson all to ourselves.  OMP – it’s going to be a blast.  The food, the unlimited internet time, the endless phone calls and television time.  Squeals with piggy excitement.  We will all have our spots – Hemi in the big bed, Houdini in my bedroom and me in the living room.  We will all have our own televisions – I’m so excited!  I can finally watch all of my ghost shows without them being edited by mom/dad.  It will be a blast.

I have to work on my ‘needs list’ for nana when she comes.  You know like the basics – Cheerios, animal crackers, bananas, apples, grapes, my salad mix – you know all of the important stuff.  And we can’t forget my popcorn – oh no.  We *have* to have our popcorn.  So there I was working on my list on my computer pounding on my keyboard when the internet started doing something stupid.  It would go out and then my screen wold flash and then it would come back.

Gulps.  And then I got this Haunted Connection message – what.the.cream.cheese was this about?!  A ghost is interfering with my internet connection.  Are you kidding me?!  This has to be the makings of Hemi.  There is no way the Hotel Thompson has a ghost or is haunted.  Yeah – it’s Hemi.  I’m not saying a word and I’m going to act like nothing is wrong.  It has to be that trouble maker the cat.

It Wasn’t the Talking Gecko

So mom went out Saturday to get the mail from the mailbox.  There she was somewhat still in her pajamas and barefooted.  Us animals know because we were all watching her from the front door.  Me, Houdini, Hemi and Mouse Girl all bundled together with the heat from the sun coming through the storm door looking out for our mom.  You know just in case something happened we would all be there for her.

She made it to the mailbox.  We saw.  We were so proud of her.  Then she started back.  That’s when it happened.  Mom squealed higher than me, jumped higher than the purr things and then ran faster than Houdini to the front door.  We didn’t know what happened.  All we heard was hysterics and heavy breathing.  Daddy went outside with his magnifying glass in one hand and mom’s iPhone camera in the other.  All he could make out from mom was on the house in the corner.

He came back in snorting a bit. He asked mom to look at the gazillion pictures he took to see if he got the guy that made her try out for a triathlon.  Much to mom’s amazement, he did.  Not so bad for a guy with limited vision – he got the cute little guy.  I wonder if he wants to come in and help us out when mom is running late for work?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

Age Appropriate? Come on Dad

BOO!

Were you scared?  Piggy rolling around laughing.  I put a sheet on myself last night and was running through the Hotel Thompson snorting, oinking and booing.  I think I scared daddy and made him jump.  It was kind of funny and he said he was laughing inside although I couldn’t see him.  He said I kind of gave it away with the sheet over my snout.  What do you think?  Would you have been scared?

Dad also told me that I’ve been watching too many paranormal ghost shows.  Seriously dad?  Is there ever *too* many paranormal ghost shows?  He then told me that perhaps some of them weren’t age appropriate for me.  Daddy, you’ve got be kidding me.  Admit it dad, you’re the one afraid of the dark, not me.  And is there anything really not age appropriate for me?  I’m not like those scaredy cats around the house.  I’m a man pig.  I can take it.

Mom lets me stay up and watch these types of shows with her, especially on Friday and Saturday nights when there’s no work the next day.  They’re great fun.  Sometimes I think me and mom could team up and investigate a spooky place together.  It would make a great television show.  How many paranormal shows have you seen with a pig co-host?  I ain’t scared of no ghosts!

Elf on the Shelf – OH NO!

Oh my friends.  I think I’m scared.  I think I may be in trouble.  It’s almost *that* time of the year again. You know the time.  *That* time when Don Juan comes out – shivers and squeals.  Wait a minute.  You’re looking confused.  You don’t know who Don Juan is?  You might be lucky that you don’t know.  Don Juan is the name of my Elf on the Shelf here at the Hotel Thompson.  But Don Juan – he’s “special”.  I mean really “special”.  You see, Don Juan is not made of the same cloth as all of these other elves that come out for the holidays.  Don Juan is evil – pure and simple.

You see these little Elf on the Shelves are a Christmas tradition.  In theory, they watch over the household and report back to the North Pole every night.  Once at the North Pole, they inform Santa of all of the happenings at their house.  By morning, the return back to the house in different positions so you know they’ve been to the North Pole.

But Don Juan. Shakes piggy head and shivers.  Don Juan has his own agenda.  He comes out and scares everyone here at the Hotel Thompson.  He does bad things…. some things I can’t even say out loud.  I didn’t want to be the only one with this out of control elf so last year I sent some cousins of Don Juan out to some friends here in blogville.  OMP – I do hope they behave this year.

The day after Thanksgiving  is when the elves get their special powers.  The Elf on the Shelves have special powers from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Day.

So I have a really, REALLY important question to you my friends in blogville.  Is there anyone that can take this little oinker in for a couple of weeks?  Please.  I’ll be nice… really.

Shivers just thinking of what Don Juan is up to… Squeals!

Squeals with Piggy Fright

There I was minding my own business and doing my constitutional when I look over.  OMP heavens!  I squealed and had absolutely *no* problems making water then.  Who in their right mind drives around with this as their companion?  Can you tell me that my friends?  I mean heck I’m all for getting to ride in the carpool lane but this is ridiculous.  To say I squealed is an understatement.  I do believe people from the next state over *might* have heard me.  And hey, I’m big enough to admit it scared me.  Wouldn’t it you?  Come on admit it my friends.  You would have screamed too… right?

Surprise Surprise – I Got Scared

There I was last night after dinner, minding my own business, curled up on mom’s lap taking a little siesta in the lap of paradise.  That’s when mom remembered that I got mail.  So she tells daddy to hand it to her so she can open it and share with me.

Oh my piggy heavens – it’s from my Auntie Sharon in Australia.  You know her from her gentlestitches.  She is amazing and such a super duper awesome friend.

So mom opens the envelope and it’s a card.  Mom reads the front and opens it.  Okay that’s when some pig ‘might’ have gotten a little scared, squealed, jumped off mom’s lap and ran down the hall to his room.  I’m just sayin’.  I wasn’t expecting it.  That’s all… I’m not afraid.

So of course, mom had to video tape the after effects.  Gee, thanks mom.

And thanks to my Auntie Sharon – you rock.  I really appreciated the birthday car and mom is digging her boomerang key chain.  Maybe now she won’t lose her keys – snorts.

❤ you Auntie Sharon!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I can explain.  Really I can.  You see, I was really helping my mom out. She kept talking about how much she hated the wallpaper in the hallway.  I just thought I would help her out with it.  You understand, right?  Signed Busted

Dear Busted – I understand completely my friend.  You see, my mom was like that last year about the linoleum in the kitchen.  She talked about how much she hated it – just as imagine your mom did about the wallpaper.  One day, I used my powerful snout and helped pull up a HUGE piece in the middle of the kitchen floor when daddy wasn’t looking.  Like your mom, mine was not too happy with me in the beginning.  But in the end when she had the floor re-done professionally she told me I did a great job in pushing her to get it done.  Give your mom some time.  Surely she will see the bigger picture later and thank you.


Dear Bacon – Have you ever been so tired that you just sleep where you are?  Like in this picture, it just *hit* me out of the blue and I couldn’t move another paw.  I was just tired out.  Signed Balancing Act

Dear Balancing Act – You do have some unique powers there my friend.  I could *never* balance my little piggy body like that and sleep without fear of falling.  Although, I have been known to just tumble over in pure exhaustion… usually after chasing the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson.  Snorts.


Dear Bacon – My humans are crazy.  You don’t believe me?  Look at this outfit.  Have you ever seen something so outrageously stupid?  I’m so embarrassed.  A onesie maybe – but this covering my head/ears… help.  Signed Help Me

Dear Help Me – I get it.  I really do.  One or the other – not both in the same outfit.  But you know in a way, you kind of remind me of a giraffe.  Not that I’m hating on you.  I think it’s kind of adorable.  Maybe safe the outfit for Halloween – it’s not too far away.  Yes I think that is it.  Use that outfit to your advantage for Halloween.  Stay cool my friend and have fun.

.


Dear Bacon – OMD!  Every time I get in the car with my human dad, this is the look I get on my face.  You gotta help me pig.  My dad thinks he is the all time best driver in the world and wants to drive Nascar.  I’m telling you, you are safer in the streets than on the sidewalks with him coming down the road.  Help me!  Signed Frozen in Shock

Dear Frozen in Shock – Dude, your dad has got to be a really bad driver with that look of fear on your face.  Are you sure he wasn’t like doing a movie or something.  Priceless my friend – just priceless.  Maybe you should hide his keys next time.  Maybe you should beg your mother to drive instead.  Maybe you should say you didn’t feel up to a drive and stay home.  I know I would if my mom drove like your dad – snorts with piggy laughter.  But if you must go, buckle up and close your eyes tight.  Stay safe!


Dear Bacon –  Shaking doggy head.  I didn’t think I would end up like this but I have.  I needed to make some extra money to keep me in treats.  So, I did what every respectful dog would do. – I started a babysitting job.  I have sunk so low.  Five purr things a day – five days a week.  They are wearing me out!  They think I’m their own personal jungle gym.  Any suggestions?  Signed Sit for You

Dear Sit for You – How about a game of hide and go seek… of course inside so the little tykes can’t get into much trouble.  That way, they are off of you and hiding – hopefully for hours – snorts with piggy laughter.  Have fun my friend!


REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send your letters and pictures to me at my email. 🙂

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Bella

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to our edition of SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this new series!


IMG_4507-1

Name:  Bella

Age:  5

Location:  Stockbridge, Georgia

Web/Blog Page:  N/A – I can’t risk anything taking away from my play time  (Bella will be checking in for messages.  Please my friends – let’s welcome Bella to the world of Blogville.) 

 

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Mom was the first one I met and I knew right away that she was going to cater to my every whim.  She seemed so happy to meet me.  Lots of smiling and even a little teary.  I had her rubbing my belly and playing ball with me within the first few minutes.  After just a short visit with me at my foster mom’s, she was completely hooked.  She put me in the car seat and we were off to go shopping!  We did have to pull over before too long though.  I had dropped my ball!  And since I’m not allowed out of my car seat, what choice did she have really?  Anyway, once we got to the store, I got new accessories to wear and tons of treats and toys.  We had so much fun picking out toys.  I got final approval before anything went into the cart.  Finally, we were on our way home where I got to meet Dad.  He was excited to see me too!  They made me feel so comfortable and I knew they loved me already.  I noticed right away though that they had other children.  That definitely concerned me.  I really require a lot of attention and I wasn’t sure how this was going to work out now.  It didn’t take long before I realized that the other kids were much, much older and did a lot of sleeping.  So, I was happy again.  My new parents made it pretty clear that I would get as much attention as I wanted and that they could even pay attention to all of us.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Oh, I think I knew that right away!  Mom talked to me all the time and just seemed so happy to have me there.  My first night, she rubbed my tummy in bed right beside her until I went to sleep.  She also let me keep lots of my toys in bed with us.  I like having them with me wherever I am.  Especially those little tennis balls!  Those are the greatest things ever!  Sometimes I even sleep with one in my mouth.  And, uh, did I mention she pulled the car over to get my ball I dropped just 10 minutes after getting on the road?  Yeah, I knew she was keeping me and I was happy about it.

 What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  If I’m honest here, I really don’t get into trouble.  Some may think I’m on the spoiled side, but whatever…  There was one occasion I got yelled at big time and it scared me stiff!  Mom had opened the front door, and didn’t say “stay” that time, so I ran out and straight down the driveway.  Next thing I know, she was screaming at me and running right behind me!  I just stopped right where I was and laid down.  I wasn’t sure what I did wrong, but I know Mom was really scared and mad at me.  Ever since then, if I act like I want to take off out the front door, she’s really quick to tell me to stay.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  So easy!  That’s definitely Mom.  She’ll stop anything she’s doing if I want sit in her lap or I want her to throw the ball.  One of my favorite things to do is roll my ball under the furniture and stare at her until she comes to get it.  I know it’s a silly thing to do, but I like checking once in a while that she’s going to come to my rescue.  Of course, she always does.  I know Mom tries to spend as much time with me as she can too.  In fact, I think she used to sew a lot before I came.  I remember shortly after I moved in, she went in her room one day to sew something.  I was kind of in the mood to play ball though, so I kept going to the door with the ball in my mouth looking as pitiful as I possibly could.  She kept telling me to wait a few minutes and we would play soon.  I tried to wait.  I really did!  But it just seemed like it was taking forever and I certainly didn’t want her to forget that I was waiting either.  So, to rush things along, I started stepping on that pedal thing she was stepping on too.  I’m not sure if I really was helping, but I do know she quit sewing and we were playing ball.  I don’t think I’ve seen her sew since then.  To be fair, I’m pretty attached to her too.  I love snuggling and giving Mom kisses and I always give her plenty of hugs when she comes home from work so she knows I missed her.  I never go to bed without her either.  I always wait for her (this makes her feel guilty when she’s has to work really late).  Anyway, it all works out.  She knows I’m happy to be with her too.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Me personally?  That’s a tough one.  I guess it depends on the humans.  Some may think it is crazy how much importance is placed on me.  Like I have no feelings and shouldn’t matter so much.  Those are the ones who are crazy.  I make it perfectly clear when I’m happy or pouting or feeling needy or whatever.  There is no way to not know I have feelings!  Therefore, I matter a great deal.  I have likes and dislikes, I love attention, I form attachments…  Oh, I could rant about this for days.  That’s probably the misconception that bothers me most.  THEN, there are those people who look at me and come to the strange conclusion that I am too spoiled!  I really don’t know how to even respond to them.  Too spoiled?  Ridiculous.


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Bella – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Did You Know?!

 OMP!  I did not know the humans had this capability.  But then again, this makes sense.  Sometimes mom’s leg hairs do this… you know it’s almost winter.  She hasn’t done a spring harvest in some time – snorts with piggy laughter.  Don’t tell her I said that okay.

And personally, my hair wouldn’t do this now would it.. Nah, I would never try to make myself ‘look’ bigger.  No way!
