National Clean Up Your Room Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

May 10th – the perfect holiday for ALL parents far and near.  If you have kids, you can relate  to this National Clean Up Your Room Day.  The kids may think that everything in their ‘organized’ room is treasure and things they will need tomorrow but we all know that plate, one sock, various toys and Lego’s and clothes are things that need to be cleaned up.  Sometimes the mess is so bad that you can’t walk through the room and stuff is packed under the bed, the dresser and the closet is overflowing.  How do these kids live in this mess?!

To mom and dad’s delights everywhere – today is National Clean Up Your Room.  Get out your shovels and pull the truck up to their window.  It’s time for everyone to clean their rooms.  Especially that Bacon, he’s not perfect either.  I took a picture of that little fellows room before his mom got to it when she got home from work.  WOW – that’s all I can say.  I can just imagine the places I could hide some nuts in that room – chitter chatter.

P.S. my friends.  This day also applies to adults.  Kids make sure you check your parents rooms as well.  Fair play is fair play !

Thank *YOU* My Friends

Monday night I hit a milestone in my blog.  Something that this little oinker thought he would never see.

My friends – this could not have happened without YOU!  YOU read my ramblings.  Listen to me.  Participate with me.  YOU make my day.  My aim on my blog is just to make people laugh… maybe wee on themselves just a tiny bit.  I want to bring happiness to your day.  A little laughter.  Something that takes away your sorrow and brings a smile to your face.  Something that when you see a pig or hear a oink, you think of me… little ole Bacon from the Hotel Thompson.

Without YOU, none of this could happen.  I want to bring your happiness but let me tell you my friends.  YOU bring me happiness.  YOU make me smile.  YOU have taught me to overcome the obstacles and there is nothing that can hold this oinker back.  If I can dream it, I can become it.

Thank YOU for being my friend and visiting my blog.  I ❤ you ALL to the moon and back!

National Pig Day

TODAY IS *MY* DAY!

Normally, I would let me friend Journalist Rocky the Squirrel tell you about important and interesting holidays.  But today, well today is *my* day.

I bet you didn’t know that I have an entire holiday to myself? Well – I do!! Today is National Pig Day. I wait all year for my holiday. This is my third one and the party is on!

But you’re probably asking yourself what is national pig day?

“National Pig Day

National Pig Day is an event held annually on March 1 in the United States to celebrate the pig. The holiday celebration was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley, a teacher in Lubbock, Texas, and Mary Lynne Rave of Beaufort, North Carolina.

According to Rave, the purpose of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.”

Since today is my day, I get to do what I want… within limitations. I get my favorite foods. I get the extra loving and snuggles. I get a piggy massage. I get my hooves done. Whatever I want – it’s all about pleasing this piggy. To all my fellow pig friends – cash in on this our holiday – enjoy it to the fullest!!

Yawn, I think I’ll start like I am in this picture.  On the couch and snuggled with mommy!

Oh No – What Do You Think?

I was looking through the pictures on my mom’s iPhone last night and came across the picture of me.  OMP (oh my pig!)  You can really see my pot-belly in this picture.  Do you think it makes me look heavy?  Does it make my butt look big?

For some reason, I keep staring at this picture.  It’s driving me crazy.  Maybe it’s the angle from which mom took the snapshot?  Heck, I don’t even remember her taking the picture.  Maybe I’m losing my piggy mind?  I remember walking around the front room oinking and talking to myself… you looking for anything that might be eatable on the floor – which I didn’t find anything.

Oh dear, do you think I need to go on this DIEt thing?  Snorts!

My Friends

Okay, how many takers do I have here with this funny?  Are you weird, deranged, freaky or just plain nutty like me?  Do you not care who knows it?

I’m raising my hoof.  I’m me. I’m one of a kind.  I have ups and downs.  I laugh, snort, cry and squeal like a rooster/dog.  I run and jump, play and sleep.  I have fun.

I meet new friends and remember my old friends.  I foam at the mouth when I’m excited.  I fart when I overeat.  Hey, it’s who I am.

But in the end, I’ll be your friend through thick and thin!  ❤ you my friends – old and new!

One Lovely Blog Award

I’m so behind these days!  My friends at Diary of a Quirky Girl gave me this award on 08/30/2014.  Trust me, I am *always* excited to get awards of any kind.  And I can’t thank you my friends enough!  I’m sorry that it has taken me a bit to get to this.  08/30/2014 was also the day that we adopted Houdini so we’ve been a little tied up on puppy duty lately – snorts.

But without further delay, let’s talk about this award – One Lovely Blog Award.  As part of accepting this award, I must tell you seven things about myself, some you might possibly not know.  Here are my seven:

  1. I like to joke around.  I really do.  Life is way too serious.  Let’s stop, laugh or snort for a few minutes every day.  And hey, if I make you laugh or snort so much you make water, so be it.  My job is done – snorts.
  2. I ❤ television.  A couple of years ago for Christmas, mom and dad got me my very own flat screen for my bedroom.  I ❤ it!  Some of my favorite shows to watch (in no particular order) are:  Felix the Cat, Mighty Mouse, Scooby Doo, Green Acres, Animal Planet and the Sci-Fi channel.  I love me some Joe Kendall of Homicide Hunter – snorts.
  3. I’m mom’s sous chef in the kitchen in the evenings.  When she is cooking the family dinner, I stand by her side tasting samples.  You know just to make sure they are acceptable for dinner.
  4. I *hate* the feel of grass on my hooves.  That’s right.  I said it.  I hate the feel of grass on my hooves.  I can’t stand it.  It’s a texture thing.  It’s gross.  Enough said.
  5. I sleep with mom and dad from time to time.  On the Select Comfort bed, I’m a 65.
  6. I snore.  Okay maybe not as loud as daddy but I snore.  What?  It doesn’t bother me – snorts.
  7. Since the adoption of Houdini here at the Hotel Thompson, I have been known to have a kinder side.  At times when no one is looking, I will let Houdini treat me like his personal jungle gym and climb all over me.  He’s a little guy.  Sometimes I will even let him bite me and act as if he is beating me up.  So that way he thinks he’s bigger than what he is.  I know.  I’m a softy.

Now to continue to share the love forward, I will nominate 15 pals:

I Have Proof!

Finally!  I have proof about our arrangements here at the Hotel Thompson.  You wouldn’t believe it.  I was shocked myself.  I’ve told you stories about that little monster Hemi who thinks he rules the roost here.  He’s in charge as he likes to tell everyone.  Trust me, to a certain point I let him believe that.  He likes to *try* to put me in my place by slapping my butt with his huge MONSTER IN CHARGE paw.  Usually when he does this, I squeal and run to mom.  I mean, I’m a man pig but mommy can bring down the wrath on him – snorts.

Well last night, I was hiding sleeping on the sofa and he didn’t see me.  What he did to daddy – shocking.  I’m telling you – SHOCKING!  This is just the proof of how wrapped he has daddy around his huge paws.  What was that?  You want to see my proof.  Okay – here you go.

What do you think now?  And look at that wicked look on his face!  I just know this is going to end up on Investigative Discovery channel.  I can see it now, “Animals that Kill”.  Hemi will be the first one serving time.  snorts!

National Pick Strawberries Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

May 20th is a wonderful glorious day.  It is National Pick Strawberries Day – what a great
day to enjoy.  I know that this is a day that the pig Bacon can wrap those jowls around.  He absolutely LOVES strawberries and that’s a huge understatement.

Today, start a new tradition.  Go find a strawberry field and pick your own strawberries.  Start a family tradition.  I think Bacon’s mom is actually going to go and pick the little fellow a few of his own today. I wonder if they will let Bacon come and pick his own?  Chitter Chatter – that would be a picture for the blog!  Enjoy my friends!

Oh, and you want to see a HUGE strawberry.  I bet if Bacon saw this, he would fall over and pass out with excitement.  Are you ready – here you go:
