Don’t forget to thank a veteran! We live due to veterans fighting for our freedom. They are much appreciated, not just today, but everyday!
My country,’ tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing;
land where my fathers died,
land of the pilgrims’ pride,
from every mountainside let freedom ring!
My native country, thee,
land of the noble free, thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
thy woods and templed hills;
my heart with rapture thrills, like that above.
Let music swell the breeze,
and ring from all the trees sweet freedom’s song;
let mortal tongues awake;
let all that breathe partake;
let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
Our fathers’ God, to thee,
author of liberty, to thee we sing;
long may our land be bright
with freedom’s holy light;
protect us by thy might, great God, our King.

Awesome – there was a silence that I believed went around the world last night. It started here at the Hotel Thompson. It was like you could see it in slow motion from outside of your body. The silence went through the house, around the house and then further out into the unknown traveling at the speed of light until the entire world heard silence. Did you hear it? Maybe you did and you just didn’t realize it? Okay you’re asking yourself, “Pig, what happened?” I’m glad you asked because I’m going to tell you – snorts.
We were all in the living room doing what we do every night. You know camping out on the sofa’s, playing games and watching the television. Daddy asked mommy a question. You see when he does this, it usually means trouble. Why do you ask? Because usually daddy doesn’t know the answer but when mommy tells him her answer he usually doesn’t believe it until proven wrong. This has been going on for a while now – rolls piggy eyes. That father of mine – trouble maker #01 okay.
Mommy has had enough of the twenty question game – snorts. So daddy pops out this question. Mommy tells him the answer. Of course daddy tells her she’s wrong but yet again he doesn’t know the ‘correct’ answer. So mommy does what she does best – she Googles it. << by the way, thanks Google>>
She finds the answer and tells daddy the answer. Then something amazing happened. I’m so glad that I was there to witness this cause friends I’m telling you it was GREAT. Daddy told mommy those three little words that girls go crazy over. He said it with so much sincerity and so much ❤ . Even I was in awe – they almost melted my little piggy ❤ . Of course those three little words just melted mom down to the core. He said, “I was wrong.”
It just made me think of the phrase, “When Pigs Fly” snorts. But do you know what was more important? What was more fascinating? What was more heart stopping than those three words? They were followed by three more words that would make any woman’s heart stomp thumping. They were, “You were right”.
OMP! Has daddy been reading books on how to get your woman to fall in love with you all over again? Bravo daddy – Bravo. I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I didn’t witness it my friends.

Let’s start by saying, me and mom are so NOT morning peeps. We have a schedule that we keep in the mornings. I wake her up for breakfast. She gets up and we eat together. Then we bundle on the couch together and listen to the morning news as we cuddle for a couple of more minutes of snooze together. Do you get the picture? Together as in me and mommy time alone. NOTICE I didn’t say: me, mommy and daddy. There was no mention of daddy. It’s called me and mommy time for a reason. Let me say again… me and mommy. So you got that, right?
So this morning of ALL mornings on a Monday, guess who decides to get up with us and infiltrate into “our” time? That’s right – daddy. Not just daddy but non-stop-diarrhea-of-the-mouth talking daddy. Go back to bed daddy! Really. But no… let’s keep chatting away. Let’s keep singing away to Eddie Rabbit… to Elvis Presley… to Brooks and Dunn… to Pink. Yep, you read right – Pink. Rolls piggy eyes and shrugs shoulders.
You see, this is the problem. Daddy is a morning person. He wakes up happy, chirpy, full of life and wonderment. Me and mom not so much. Even this little oinker knows not to talk to mommy until after that first cup of coffee… sometimes maybe a second. And hey – I’m not that jolly myself in the morning. I have one thing on my mind – food. And then some snuggles. Sometimes not in that particular order.
Daddy was so bad this morning – a MONDAY of all days, that me and mom went to her room. I got on the big bed and watched her get ready for work. Guess who followed us? Mouthy man! I could see mommy and the steam was rising. She looked at me and I could just picture her in my head telling daddy, “SILENCE!” But she didn’t – it was a nice dream though. Poor dad. He was like a little puppy this morning following us around. I thought at one time I heard mommy mumble, “Jabber Jaws” under her breath. I can’t be sure though. Of all days, I think mommy was ready to go to work. She kissed me and put me back to bed for a morning nap. Daddy even followed her to the car. It’s going to be a long day for me here at the Hotel Thompson. Please pray for me that daddy goes back down for a nap. Snorts. Do you have a morning person in your house? What do you do when they get over obnoxious?

OMP (Oh my piggy). I saw this on the internet and I *must* take notes.
The next time that mommy washes the fish tank that holds 007 and 007.5, I have to do this to them. I think it will be hilarious. It will scare them so much – snorts.
Perhaps I can get Mouse Girl and Hemi to help out. Can you imagine the looks on those poor fish faces? Snorts – Too funny!!
Happy Sunday my friends!
