Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting December.  What we do, traditions, food, parties with friends and family – what special things do we do for the Christmas holidays?

Now mom/dad have been together since Moby Dick was a minnow.  Daddy said that when he was courting mommy, every year for Christmas they would go to mom’s family in the morning with presents and dinner.  Then in the afternoon, they would head to dad’s family for presents and dinner.  It was certainly a full day surrounded by family, food, love and LOTS of people coming/going.

Once mommy decided to let daddy ‘catch her’ and put a ring on her finger by marriage, their house was the gathering point for a couple of years for the family dinner and presents.  Then here and there, moms and dads passed away and it was time for my mom/dad to start making their own ‘family’ tradition.

Since mom/dad don’t have any two legged creatures for Christmas, me and the other anipals here at the Hotel Thompson step up.  Hey, it’s the least we can do for mom/dad, right?  So we leave out little hints – cut outs from pet store magazines, videos from television and paw prints spelling out what we want from Santa.  Then mom/dad have a direct line to Santa and tell him everything.  On Christmas day, we all get up at the crack of dawn and rush to the living room to shred open presents.  It’s a grand time in our day.

Then when we have played with our toys and ate some treats, we anipals take a nap so that mom/dad can do their Christmas.  You ask what?  Well, you just *know* it’s going to involve food – snorts with piggy laughter.

For years now, mom/dad go to a local restaurant for all you can eat CRAB LEGS.  Can you believe that?  How traditional is that?  Not so much but they absolutely love it.  And let me tell you something.  They are serious about their crab legs.  They wear bibs and everything and they have tools.  Tools to eat?!  WOW – I don’t have tools to eat… well unless you count my powerful snout and hooves – snorts with piggy laughter.

   .

But they get buckets of crab made in a spicy boil that are delivered fresh and steaming to their table.  They then throw caution to the wind and get cracking.  Neither one of them throw in the towel until they are happily full of crab meat.

This is their time to spend together, talk about family that have passed, laugh and joke about their days together.  They talk about their life together and drink to years more to come.  They talk about their love for each other.

And talking about love. Mom has bad arthritis in her fingers.  There comes to a point in her crab cracking that those fingers just give out.  And what does daddy do about it?  He will sit there and crack open her crab legs for her to eat.  Now my friends, that is love!

Pay it Forward

Okay Friends – Here We Go!

My sweet friends¬†at Nikitaland¬†have started this monthly issue of Pay It Forward. ¬†We asked for you to keep this in mind all month and to share things here today on what you have been able to do. ¬†Paying it forward is not for bragging purposes – it’s an attempt to show how many different things we can do to pay it forward – lots of them don’t even include money. ¬†Gestures that we take for granted¬†may be a God send to another person.

.

This month mom/dad decided to do something that was a little different than the usual. ¬†They eat out a lot on the weekends. ¬†They decided that they would go out during the month and whatever waitress/waiter they met that really went overboard in kindness, they would leave a very nice tip. ¬†I mean nice… not cruise around the world nice but generous enough that it would mean more than the typical tip. ¬†That was their game plan and they stuck with it. ¬†

So one place they went to they met a nice young lady and talked to her throughout their meal. ¬†They learned she was supporting herself while going to school and working two jobs to pay for school and rent. ¬†Mom/dad both looked at each other and knew this was *the one*. ¬†At the end of their meal, they added their tip in on their charge and left. ¬†They didn’t want anything in return – just a smile on the waitresses face in knowing that people that really care are out there.

 My buddy Nikitaland made up a good deeds sheet.  You can get it here.  You can print it, hang it on your fridge and just jot some things down that you do during the month.  That way at our next meet up, you can share what you have done to PAY IT FORWARD.

AND if you are interested in getting some Pay it Forward bracelets, check out Nikitaland’s post here¬†for ordering information. ¬†Believe me friends – WE CAN ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Next meet up will be December 2nd – mark your calendars!

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month.

This month for¬†Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting¬†school. ¬†Now I looked far and wide to come up with some pictures of mom/dad from their school days. ¬†My goodness – we are talking dinosaur age here – snorts with piggy laughter. ¬†But I did find some that I would share with you my friends. ¬†Now trust me, these are good!

.

The first picture is of my dad. ¬†I’ve talked about it before how he was a big football player in his school days. ¬†He absolutely loves the game. ¬†This is him in his football outfit around his senior year, sometime circa 1981.

Handsome and YOUNG huh?  That was his number Р72.  Of course, he made shoulder pads look fashionable Рsnorts!  He was what my mom called a jock in high school.  She was the exact opposite.  She was what the football players called a nerd Рa smartie Рthe one the football players went to for help in their studies.  Yep, that was my mom.

.

.

This is her picture from graduation way back in 1987.  See that yellow cord?  She was an honor graduate.  Cool huh?  She still has that around the house here somewhere.

So there you go – two pictures from mom/dad’s school time. ¬†Different schools and different times. ¬†There’s no telling though in this small community how many times mom/dad crossed paths while growing up. ¬†All I gotta say is thank goodness they finally did meet up and stay together!

Five Statements – Truth Revealed

Welcome back my friends to the reveal of the five statements. ¬†Which one did you guess was true? ¬†Did you pick it right away or did it take some work in thinking about each one? ¬†Just what kind of person is my mommy? ¬†Let’s see if you got it right.



Statement #01
– Mom got a sport letter and award in Track when she was in high school. ¬† Winner-Winner. ¬†Mommy actually was the assistant to the track coach in high school for two years and kept the scores for all meets. ¬†This is how she gained her letter and award. ¬†Snorts – you thought she ran didn’t you? ¬†If mom ran, she says she would have two black eyes and two broken knees. ¬†Now that is hilarious! ¬†AND who was the first person to guess it correctly – my brother Easy. ¬†He knows my mommy!

Statement #02 РMommy loves Cabbage Patch Kids.  Really?  Mommy despised Cabbage Patch Kids.  If you are a true follower, you have read her story about the demise of her *cherished* Cabbage Patch Kid in a fierce game of Cowboys and Indians Рsnorts with piggy laughter.

Statement #03 – Mom graduated with a C average in high school. ¬†C student – oh no. ¬†Mommy was an honor graduate – straight A’s. ¬†In fact, some would say she was a nerd! ¬†The shock of that huh?

Statement #04 – Mom’s first pet she ever had was a snail named Igor. ¬†This would have been cool but again no. ¬†Mom’s first pet was a dog named Beast.

Statement #05 – Mom and dad met when mom was working her pole at her second job. ¬†Now I had to throw this in there. ¬†Of course it didn’t happen this way. ¬†But once, mom/dad went to a book store when they were dating. ¬†Mom wrote a check and the lady asked for her work number. ¬†Daddy did tell the lady it was the Cheetah Club (which was a strip joint in Atlanta, Georgia). ¬†The lady replied, “Yeah, right. ¬†I don’t think anyone with Holly Hobby checks would be a stripper!”. ¬†Now *that’s* funny.
