Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Hey sweet friends.  How has your week gone?  Here at the Hotel Thompson, we’ve had storms with icky rains and thunder all week.  It was like someone outside was throwing a huge bowling party for a while.  It doesn’t help that the Hotel Thompson sits in a little gully and there is a creek in the lower part of our backyard.  So when it thunders, it almost shakes our entire house.  At times, I feel like Toto in the Wizard of Oz.

Mom caught me in deep thought pondering about the rains yesterday.  I was watching the rain come down outside the window.  Every once in a while, my tail would wiggle in anticipation of the next BOOM of thunder.  One day, I will catch that boom and make it mine for all of the times it scares me.

Hopefully the rains will stop for this weekend and we can have a great time of snuggles and treats.  I hope you have a great one as well sweet friends.  Now I leave you with silly daddy in his Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy!

Paw Time with Houdini


 Okay admission is the first step.  Mom has stepped over the line.  Is it sanity or insanity?  She kept telling daddy that she ordered some ‘special’ pillows for the living room chaise.  Dad was like whatever okay.  But mom continued to say they were ‘special’.  Well they came in and I guess they are special.  They look somewhat familiar.  Of course I’m under strict orders not to touch them, look at them or go near them.  What kind of pillows are they if I can roll all over them, right?

Of course mom was oohing and awwing and telling daddy all about them.  I just say give me five seconds with them… alone.

Do you have ‘special’ pillows that you aren’t allowed to touch?

Wags and Waves for Forrest Day

Welcome my friends to Wags and Waves for Forrest Day!  This day was put together by our Auntie Sharon of Gentle Stitches.  It’s a day created to help our friends Fozzie and her family at All Fur One and One Fur All  in the loss of their anipal Forrest (06/06/2003 – 04/27/2016) who is now an angel watching over all of us here.

Today, we are wagging and waving our tails as a tribute to a great guy in support of his family who is going through a rough time – as you can imagine.

Please my friends – I hope that you support the cause and do a posting on your blog today for this cause.  And if you get a chance, go visit Fozzie at  All Fur One and One Fur All  and let them know you are thinking of them.  You can also use this awesome badge that Sammy from One Spoiled Cat created.

 


And here we are my friends – our participation to Wags and Waves for Forest Day.  We know pal that you are watching over our Mouse Girl. ❤

Shopping Around the World

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World last month.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices around the world – and the pictures with recipes!

This month we are highlighting sandwiches.  Show us your creativity and your best sandwich.  What makes it special?  What kind of ingredients do you have in it and what does it look like?  It can be more than five ingredients.

.


This was a tough one this month – not so much as to a sandwich but what to pick to post.  I ended picking a sandwich that we all absolutely love here at the Hotel Thompson.  AND, it’s simple to fix.  Really – it looks like it’s complicated but trust me, it’s not 🙂

Normally we fix this sandwich a lot around the Thanksgiving -Christmas holidays because of all of the leftovers.  You are probably asking yourself well what do you call it?  This is our rendition of a Monte Cristo sandwich.

What you will need:

2 slices of white bread ($0.10)

2 slices of ham or leftover ham (if you buy the deli ham this comes out to less than $1.25)

2 slices of turkey or leftover turkey (again if you buy the deli turkey this comes out to less than $1.25)

2-3 slices of cheese – any kind.  In this situation, we used one slice of cheddar on top and one slice of cheddar on bottom with one slice of swiss in the middle.  (we had all of these cheese on hand and it came out less than $1.00)

Pillsbury pizza dough – yep you heard it.  One can cost us $1.50

Powdered sugar to top.  I’m still using a bag of powdered sugar that I bought some time ago.  I’m going to say this might be $0.25

And you have your choice of any kind of jam you want to dip your sandwich into before eating. Here, we prefer a strawberry jam.  One bottle usually makes it 4 sandwiches so for 1 sandwich – $0.75.

Build your Monte Cristo.  Lay out your 2 pieces of white bread.  Add a piece of cheddar, one slice of ham, one slice of turkey, one slice of swiss, one slice of ham, one slice of turkey and one slice of cheddar.  Take your pizza dough and cut it into two slices.  You just need a half slice to wrap around your sandwich completely – just like wrapping a package.  Get your oil hot in your pan because now you are going to deep fry your sandwich.  Yep, we are in the south – DEEP FRY that bad boy.  When it is nicely browned on all sides, take it out and pat it with a paper towel.  Then cut it into fours, place it on a plate and lightly dust it with the powdered sugar.  Dip in your jam and enjoy.  This is wonderful!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Ava

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to 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!


Name:  AvaIMG_4491

Age:  3

Location:  Georgia

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I couldn’t figure out why they wrapped me in a blankie but then I realized it was cuz it was cold outside and they didn’t want me to get sick.

Web Page:  N/A  (My friends – Ava will be checking in throughout the day for comments/messages.  Please welcome my friend Ava to the blogville world.)

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I stuck my tongue out at my mommy and she let me get away with it.

.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  When my mommy found out I ate poo-poo.  I thought it was chocolate!  Whoops.

.

Who doIMG_4494 you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Both of my mommies.  I’m fortunate to still have my real mommy.  She still tries to clean me.  I let her clean my face but get upset when she tries to clean my belly.  

And my other mommy cause I roll over on my back and she gives me raspberries on my belly.  It tickles and puts me to sleep at the same time.

.

.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Humans think I’m mean – but who could resist this face!?

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