Friendship Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

.

Who could ask for a better day?  The first Sunday of August is always Friendship Day.  Isn’t that a wonderful day to celebrate?  What is better than friends – whether they come in the human form or the animal form.  Friends are always there with us in good times and in bad times, to share special moments in our lives.  Sometimes all it takes is just a smile, holding a hand, a hug or just an ear or shoulder to cry on.

Friendship Day should be celebrated by phone, in person or by reaching out in an email or blog.  You don’t have to live next door to show someone how much you care.  Express your friendship in some way today and show the ones that you love what they mean to you.

NOTE FROM PIGLOVE –

We here at the Hotel Thompson would like to tell all of our friends here how much we love and appreciate them.  You put up with our silliness, our sometimes seriousness (although it doesn’t happen often) and our whack-o ways.  We started Piglove as an outlet to share memories of Bacon… a cute little miniature pot bellied pig.  This blog has grown so much to include Hemi  the purr thing, Houdini the Yorkie as well as Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and the rock clan.

You have helped me to personally grow and do something that I love, to write and make people laugh.  I would like to take this time on Friendship Day and tell each and everyone of you – Thank You for being our friends.  We cherish our times, our talks, our emails and phone calls.  We cherish your ‘go with this’ attitude when we come up with something whacky and new.  You can never imagine how much your friendship means to us.  Here’s to another year of great posting, inter-action with our friends and much laughter –  Bacon’s humans

Happy Father’s Day Daddy!

Today, June 19th, is just a special day – it’s Father’s Day!!  I have to say happy Father’s Day to my biological father, Champ.   If it wasn’t for him and my mom, Bertha, I wouldn’t be here with my adopted family at the Hotel Thompson.  So Happy Father’s Day Champ!

And then, my adopted dad.  What can I say?  He adopted me when I was a small tyke – I could barely walk!  I knew nothing about life at a mere three weeks.  I was still on formula and had to be taught everything.  Do you know to this day, dad takes care of me during the day?  While mom is at the worky place, dad makes sure that I get all of my nutritional food and that I’m happy until mom gets home.  Isn’t that great?  I guess you could call him my pigdad.

So, for today dad don’t worry about anything.  Me, the purr things and mom will handle it at the Hotel Thompson.  Heck, mom even said something about fixing your favorite food… and that I might get a taste.  Hey – it’s a win win situation today!20140217-042733.jpg

Enough of the seriousness though.  Let’s talk Bacon – oink chuckles.  Just for today dad, you can sit back on the sofa, enjoy your television and have the remote.  You don’t have to utter one word… especially the phrases I’ve heard you say around here.  Oh, you look shocked.  Let me remind you of some of the phrases – PLOL (Pig Laughing Out Loud).  How many have you heard from your fathers?

Just because I love you doesn’t mean I have to like everything you do.

Because I’m the Dad, that’s why!

I brought you into this world, and I can take you out! 

I’m a Dad, I know everything.

The sooner you learn to stand on your own two feet, the better off you’ll be. – which never makes sense to me since I have four feet – shakes piggy head

That’s just the way life is, son.

You make a better door than a window!

Were you born In a Barn?  well, yes I was

Do you think money grows on trees?  technically, it does 🙂

I haven’t developed gray hairs for nothing!

You are too young to understand this.

And my favorite all time one liner from dad –

Go ask your mother….. perfect… I will 🙂

Happy Father’s Day to all of my friends!!

I’m so glad to see that you are sticking with me through scary screams and horror.  Today, I’ll make it light for you and I’ll try not to scare you that much.  The heart can only take so much… I know.  So today, let’s talk a few scary jokes to get you in the mood for tomorrows posting shall we.

How did the ghost patch his sheet?  With a pumpkin patch.

How did the glamorous ghost earn her living?  She was a cover ghoul.

How do ghosts learn songs?  They read sheet music.

How do ghosts like to send their letters?  Scare mail or parcel ghost.

What is a ghost’s favorite kind of street?  A dead end.

What day of the week do ghosts look forward to?  Moanday

What did one ghost say to the other when they fell down?  I got a booo booo

What did the ghost say to the man at the coffee shop?  Scream or sugar?

And my favorite –

What did the little ghost have in his rock collection?  Tombstones

Here’s another song to help us hum throughout the day.  Turn up the volume and sing along.  We’re being invaded by the One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater!

Wiggle Your Toes Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

.

Friends – What a glorious day this is – Wiggle Your Toes Day!  Think about it – whether you have paws, toes, hooves or whatever, sometimes it just feels good to spread those toes and wiggle them.  Let those piggies loose (no offense Bacon).

Humans push their toes in shows or socks all day long.  They are always in a rush and sometimes forget to slow down.  Today, slow down!  Take those toes out of their confinements, wiggle them and let them breathe for a while.

Toes, hooves or paws come in all different sizes and shapes.  Have you wiggled your toes yet today?

Television Guides

  We had a full weekend here at the Hotel Thompson.  It was busy from Friday night up until late last night.  There was the Albert vs Tank competition that we conducted – which the results were eye opening.  Then we had to go shopping Saturday for a certain little guy’s birthday.  What?  You didn’t hear?  Come closer – sshh – Houdini’s birthday is on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 – he will be the big ONE.  So mom/dad gave him a surprise birthday party yesterday up at Nana’s.  They did it yesterday because sometimes it’s hard for mom to get away from the worky place.  It was a hoot!  I will be blogging about it this Wednesday.

Then yesterday after the party, it was cleaning day here at the Hotel Thompson.  Shakes head – I hate cleaning day.  We all do our share of dragging stuff to the laundry room, changing sheets, helping with dusting and taking trash out.  Slave drives my humans.   Then we all snuggled up for some television.  One of our favorite classics was showing – The Wizard of Oz.  We love that film!  Back in 2013, I even broke down the movie according to my piggy thinking.  You can read all about that here.  Please read it if you haven’t and let me know what you think.

Last night though, mom/dad saw this in the television guide – you know that tells you what is coming on television.  This is how we knew it was showing last night.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Snorts with piggy laughter!  I gotta meet the writer of the television guide.  This is awesome.  Kind of what happens but not exactly right?  Snorts!!

I’ve Created a New Season – Happy Sprinter

This picture is from Wikipedia.  It shows the typical seasons – Spring, Summer, Fall and then Winter.  That’s the way it’s suppose to fall.  But this year, dear old Mother Nature is not playing fairly.  Mommy says she needs hormone shots and daddy says she needs more dates with Father Time.  I’m not sure which one is right.  I just know that maybe she needs a kick in the butt.  Yep, I said.  I kick right smack in the middle of her captains quarters.

You see, this weekend is what I’m talking about.  Saturday here at the Hotel Thompson we get up and it is beautiful.  There’s no other way to put it.  The birds are chirping (and that’s a story for another time – snorts), the sun is out, the wind is just right and the temperatures are in the 60’s.  You couldn’t ask for a more gorgeous day.  Mom and me went out to wash her Smart car Albert.  It only took less than five minutes by throwing a cup of water at it – snorts.  I kill myself.

20140112-143627.jpg

Our neighbor Big Daddy had cut our yard and the back yard was spectacular.  Thanks Big Daddy!  We went out there and ran for a while.  Mommy says it was for me to get some sun and I said I understood.  Secretly I knew she wanted me to run some excess Winter weight off so I would sleep more deeply tonight.  I’m good with that.  I just wonder why she didn’t make daddy do the same.  Double snorts.

It was a wonderful day.  Lots of running, loving and snuggles.

Then BAM!  What a change Sunday.  Sunday brought us rain, cool weather and strong winds.  We could actually sit inside and hear the winds!  We all got up and had breakfast together.  It was so damp and yuck outside that after breakfast, we all went back to bed.  Now, I’m not hating days like this because usually, like this day, when we go back to bed we all get on the Select Comfort for a siesta.  It was great.

Picture this.  A king sized Select Comfort bed with two humans, two purr things and a piggy.  Snorts, I’m a 65 with mommy on the Select Comfort.  Daddy and the purr things are a 100.  That’s just too hard for this little oinker.  When we got up from our nap, it was still yuck outside.

Now, I’m telling you all of this for a reason.  It’s suppose to be Spring but it still acts like Winter.  I’m suggesting a new season called – Sprinter.  You get it?  Spring with Winter.  So sometime today, tell someone Happy Sprinter.  Then smile and remember my little story here.  🙂

Happy Sprinter my pals!
