Pay it Forward – MARK YOUR CALENDARS

Okay Friends – Here We Go!

My sweet friends at Nikitaland have started this monthly issue of Pay It Forward.  We asked for you to keep this in mind all month and to share things here today on what you have been able to do.  Paying it forward is not for bragging purposes – it’s an attempt to show how many different things we can do to pay it forward – lots of them don’t even include money.  Gestures that we take for granted may be a God send to another person.

.

 My buddy Nikitaland made up a good deeds sheet.  You can get it here.  You can print it, hang it on your fridge and just jot some things down that you do during the month.  That way at our next meet up, you can share what you have done to PAY IT FORWARD.

AND if you are interested in getting some Pay it Forward bracelets, check out Nikitaland’s post here for ordering information.  Believe me friends – WE CAN ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Next meet up will be December 2nd – mark your calendars!

Pay it Forward

This month mom/dad decided to do something that was a little different than the usual.  They eat out a lot on the weekends.  They decided that they would go out during the month and whatever waitress/waiter they met that really went overboard in kindness, they would leave a very nice tip.  I mean nice… not cruise around the world nice but generous enough that it would mean more than the typical tip.  That was their game plan and they stuck with it.  

So one place they went to they met a nice young lady and talked to her throughout their meal.  They learned she was supporting herself while going to school and working two jobs to pay for school and rent.  Mom/dad both looked at each other and knew this was *the one*.  At the end of their meal, they added their tip in on their charge and left.  They didn’t want anything in return – just a smile on the waitresses face in knowing that people that really care are out there.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Nothing to see here.  Really there’s not.  I was just having a prayer meeting with Mr. Kitty.  That’s all.  Doggy Scouts Honor.  Signed Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Dear Innocent Until Proven Guilty – Oh wow my friend.  How could anyone think anything other than just a prayer meeting was going on in that picture?  I mean Mr. Kitty just would normally be cornered standing up straight with his hands down.  Now to think of though – if it was a prayer meeting, why wasn’t his hands up?  You gotta think about these questions that might come up.  And the look on his face – well that doesn’t say Amen to me.  I’m just telling you like I see it.


 

   Dear Bacon – The humans came home early.  How dare them.  Don’t they know that once the leave for work, this crib is mine for eight hours or more?  Here I was taking a little dip in the inside pool.  They walked in like I was killing the pet bird or something.  Honestly, some people.  If they didn’t want me to swim in the pool, don’t leave the lid up.  Signed Skinny Dipping

Dear Skinny Dipping – Remind me not to get to close to your snuggles when I visit.  I don’t think that contraption is made for your swimming convenience.  I’ve seen what my daddy does in it.  It’s not pretty.  Trust me on that.  Shivers.


 

  Dear Bacon – Can you believe my owner accused me of getting into her so called make up?  I did not touch her war paint.  No I didn’t.  You can’t prove these things.  She didn’t see me in it.  Hhummphh – I think I’ll go take a walk outside now.  Signed Painted Lady

Dear Painted Lady –  Uumm, you might want to rethink your stand on the no touchy of the war paint.  Go look in the mirror.  I think you will ‘see’ what is giving you away.  Although I do like the color of your paws and mouth, it looks like that lipstick didn’t get away.  One shade darker and it would look like a crime scene happened at your crib with you being the victim.  Of course on the other hoof, that would make an awesome Halloween costume.  Crime Scene or Street Walker – you make the call – snorts with piggy laughter.

 


 

 Dear Bacon – This may look like shredded paper all over the floor but it’s not.  I have a perfectly good excuse for this.  You see my humans leave me in the kitchen while they go to make the money to keep me in the life I’ve grown accustomed.  Well, I’ve watched my mom clip her so called coupons all the time.  If you look closer at these papers, they are coupons.  I was just trying to lend a helping paw and help her out.  You know, to give her more time to pet and play with me.  You understand, right?  Signed Coupon Clipper

Dear Coupon Clipper – I give you one for helping and participating in the household budget my friend.  Unfortunately though, I don’t think those coupons will work the way you cut them.  I’m sure your mom understood your willing to help.  Maybe next time, you let her do the clipping with one hand while she pets you with the other.


 

REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon can’t help without your participation. Keep sending your letters and pictures to my email address.  Snorts and Oinks!

This month mom didn’t buy anyone’s meal at all.  She didn’t buy any toys for anyone  She didn’t even send out any anonymous gifts.  So you are probably asking yourself what did she do.  I’m proud to tell you that she listened.  She made it a point to visit several elderly people that she knows throughout the month and sat with them just listening.  Listening to their childhood stories.  Listening to their dreams.  Listening to what they did for a living. Listening to war stories.  Are you asking how this is a Pay it Forward?  There are so many people out there that either don’t live close to their family or their family has a family and they don’t visit often enough with all of the day to day errands.  Sometimes the best way to pay something forward is listening to stories of the past.  Can you imagine how mom’s friends felt after she visited listening to them?  How they laughed and got to remember happy times and adventures.  When was the last time that you just listened?

 

My buddy Nikitaland made up a good deeds sheet.  You can get it here.  You can print it, hang it on your fridge and just jot some things down that you do during the month.  That way at our next meet up, you can share what you have done to PAY IT FORWARD.

Big Surprises for Mom/Dad

Hello my friends.  Sneaky Bacon here today – snorts.  I’ve been trying to help mom out the past couple of days.  She’s been home sick.  It just seemed like everything was slamming her out of the left field all at once.  But I’m happy to note that she has returned back to work today from being out all week.  I’m sure she will have loads to catch up on – which is good.  Good why?  Because I’ve been trying to sneak around the house and get something together for mom/dad without them knowing.  Do you know how hard that is?

So I’ve tip-toed around the Hotel Thompson and used stilts so that mom/dad wouldn’t hear my hooves on the hard wood floors.  You see, their anniversary is 09/15/2015.  But it’s during the week so therefore I’m looking at putting something together for them this weekend.  Since most people can’t speak pig, I’ve had to use my computer to put together this surprise.  And let me tell you – it is a surprise.  I can’t go into any details at this point because you never know who might let it slip to them.  But it’s good.  I’ll make sure mom takes plenty of pictures to show everyone next week.

And if you are around 09/15/2015, remember it’s their anniversary.  Sshh on the surprise though okay.
