Helpful Tips – Let’s Share

My friends – I’ve thought of something so cool.  Today, let’s share some helpful tips.  Perhaps there is something that you do to make life easier for you that could make life easier for everyone.  

For instance, mom has three magnets on the refrigerator.  One is a dog, one is a cat and one is an alligator.  Yes you read that right.  An alligator – rolls piggy eyes.  Mommy couldn’t find a piggy magnet.  Too funny that the alligator represents me – snorts.  Anyway, they are always kept in the same spot on the fridge.  When mom feeds the cats, she takes down the cat one.  When she feeds the dog, she takes down the dog one.  And then when she feeds moi, she takes down the alligator one.  That way, just in case she is running late or sleeping in and daddy has to feed us, he knows which one of us have been fed or not fed.  So no more double feeding – darns it.  

Another thing mom does at work is that she keeps a shot glass on her desk.  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter – not for drinking you funny person.  She keeps her staple remover in it.  She goes through a LOT of papers and a lot of times has to remove the staples.  She removes the staples and then puts them in the shot glass to hold them while she goes through the entire stack of papers.  Then all she has to do and toss the contents from the shot glass when she is finished.  Something easy that helps her out a bit.  

Do ever wonder how daddy is able to do household chores without ‘seeing’?  For anyone that has vision problems, these are very helpful tips.  Mom taped a toothpick to the washing machine.  When daddy does the washing, he feels for the toothpick so he knows how far to turn the dial.  Mom also taped a key disc (you know the ones that are colored and are empty in the middle that you put on your keys for coding) to the oven on the “on” button.  If daddy wants to cook something in the oven, he feels for the disc and is able to turn the oven on.  Mom also put a key disc on the on button of the microwave.  

What are some helpful tips that you can share?

Hey – Heads Up

Mommy was recently asked to write an article on living with someone with visual impairments and disabilities.  I’m going to be posting the article on my blog on New Years Day, 01/01/2015.  I hope that you will join me here this date to read her article.  

It gives you a lot of insight on what we experience here in every day life at the Hotel Thompson and on mom/dad’s adventures in shopping and traveling.  And you know my mom and her sense of humor – I hope it shows in her article.  She has put a lot of time into this article and I hope you can smile and perhaps learn something new 🙂

Please my friends be free to share this article with your friends on your blogs on 01/01/2015.  It’s something that we need to do to educate everyone on disabilities and means a lot to us here at the Hotel Thompson. And what a perfect way to do it on the first day of the new year 2015.  We can make a difference!

Thanks!

Prayers Requested – Please Reblog to Spread the News

Hello my friends.  Just wanted to post a quick note unrelated to my 31 days of Spook.  We just got back from vacation and read some really awful news.

Today, I want to speak about my brother Easy’s dad.  He is really sick and in the hospital.  Something happened completely out of the blue.  Please be sure to keep Easy’s dad and family in your prayers for a quick recovery.  And if you can, share this post on your blog.  The more people that know, the more prayer and healing vibes we can get their way.  And if you will, please visit Easy’s blog to send him and his family some well wishes.

And brother – you take care of yourself and your mom.  We are so praying your dad gets home soon.

We ❤ you!

Bacon’s Show and Tell – Don’t Forget :)

REMINDER

Hello friends!!  As you know, I’ve been posting pictures of mom’s childhood toys and calling it Blast from the Past.  My good friend Christina  suggested I put together a posting that everyone can participate in with sharing a toy(s) from their past.

I am putting together Bacon’s Show and Tell scheduled for Monday, June 30th, 2014.  Post a blog this date to share a toy(s) from your childhood and tell us a little something about the toy.  What it meant to you.  Do you still have it?  When did you get it?  Do you have a picture of it?  Whatever you want to share.

Let’s see how many people we can get to post on June 30th, 2014 and participate in Bacon’s Show and Tell.  Mark your calendars and share with your friends – let’s relive some childhood memories!

NOTE:  You don’t have to still have your toy from your childhood.  Talk about what your favorite toy that you had, describe it and why it was your favorite 🙂

Many thanks to Christina for the suggestion!

Hemi-Jacked

20130610-105614.jpg

Oh Bacon you little pig – when are you going to learn to log off of your computer when you *finally* go to sleep?  You know if you stay signed on, something like this will happen.  I will Hemi-Jack your blog for my own personal reasons – purr.

For a pig, you do take a lot of naps.  You do realize that, right?  I mean I’m a cat, the master cat, of the Hotel Thompson and I do take lots of ‘cat’ naps throughout the day.  But you my friend, top me in your ‘pig’ naps.  I bet you didn’t know that I walked right into your room, jumped on your bed with you and licked you a couple of hours ago.  Shocker – you taste nothing like real bacon.  I know real bacon.  You my friend are an imposter in the purest of forms.

Just to let you know, I kept the mommy warm for you.  Insert evil purr for you.  She’s not just *your* mommy.  She’s ALL of our mommy.  With such, know that she is shareable.  Just to give you some proof of the love she gave me, I had her take a couple of pictures for your amusement proof.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.  I think they are some of my favorites 🙂
