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!!

Dear Bacon – Cat Special

20130326-100117.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Do you ever just have one of those days that you just can’t wait to fling yourself into your bed, the masters bed or someones bed? It was a long day for me when my master caught me in this picture. It’s hard work protecting the house, sleeping, running and grooming oneself. Signed Tuckered Tom Cat

Dear Tuckered Tom Cat,

There’s not much slinging I can do with this pot belly but I have seen mom come home from the worky place and sling herself into her bed. Sometimes the day can be long and stressful. Meditate my friend.

Dear Bacon,

There’s nothing like getting up in the morning and doing that first stretch of the day. It helps to set the tone of the day and get all of the muscles waking up. Do you stretch? Signed Stretch Arm Cat

Dear Stretch Arm Cat,

You can often find me stretching like that throughout the house. My favorite time is beside mom on the couch. Why? Because she laughs at me and anytime I can make her laugh is a good thing. She says when I stretch on the couch I make stretchy sounds through my mouth. I can’t help it. It feels totally rad!

Dear Bacon,

Today Bacon let’s talk about cats and how intelligent *they* are in society. You’re not the only one that is smart. I have a sciene degree in cataology. Notice my theories on the chalk board behind me and take notes my friend. Signed Professor Meow

Dear Professor Meow,

I’m impressed with you, your theory and your little bow tie. You go on my feline friend and teach on. I give you two hooves up (only because if I give you four hooves up I will fall over) for your extended education.

Dear Bacon,

Jet power – that is where the future is in transportation. My human says it’s the black beans I had for dinner but I’m sticking with jet power! Signed Flying Kitty

Dear Flying Kitty,

PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud). I don’t know my friend. I might have to side with your human on this one. I know I myself can relate to those black beans and especially cabbage! Cabbage is *always* the culprit that does ‘jet power’ for me. But it doesn’t matter how much cabbage I eat. I don’t think there’s enough in this world to make this little miniature pot bellied pig fly! Be safe my friend.

 

20130326-100208.jpgDear Bacon,

It all started with our daily inspirational reading last night. We discussed Moses parting the Red Sea and I was intrigued with the humans. If they can do it, why can’t I? I prayed about it and tried. Well, let’s just say the jump and first step was probably the best being camera worthy. After that, I sunk like the Titanic. Signed Wet Kitty

Dear Wet Kitty,

At least you had the faith and attempted. I applaud you for partaking in the daily bread. Keep up the great work and try to stay dry my four legged friend.

Pig Sling for Mom?

20130409-084544.jpgWouldn’t this be ideal?  Mom could put me in it and just carry me everywhere she goes.  Just think of the possibilties and what people would think.  I wouldn’t get tired out at all.  I would feel safe because I was in mom’s hands.  Nature wouldn’t touch my feet.  It would actually be kind of a cool way of transportation. 

What do you think?

Mother Ship Transportation

20130409-084025.jpg 

I’ve absolutely seen everything now. 

I was on line last night after Bashful finally went to sleep.  I saw this and thought it was the most outstanding and wonderful contraption ever!  I never knew this even existed.  It’s the best concept for those that don’t want to get their little feet wet… like me.

I just have to wonder if it’s a big enough space for me to crawl into?  It looks like there’s quiet a little clan up in there so I might be able to fit.

Have you ever seen this before?  I wonder what else is out there that I don’t know about?  …. off to search more stuff on the internet!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,
I hate baths. My humans think I need one every once in a while. I don’t. I mean why? I’ll just get dirty again, right? What can I do to change their minds? Signed On The Edge

Dear On The Edge,
Have you really tried to enjoy one my friend? It looks like your humans went all out and even put bubbles in the water. It even looks like a great tub my friend. I bet the water was even nice and warm. I myself love me a nice long bath. Especially when mom puts treats in the water. Maybe your humans need to try that? Suggest it and see how you feel then.

Dear Bacon,
All my life, I’ve been slow. Let me change that. I’ve been slower than slow… If that’s even a speed! People have been making jokes about me for years. But nowadays, watch out. I got some wheels and there I zoomed by. They catch me these days riding dirty. Have you ever thought about riding? Signed Slow and Steady

Dear Slow and Steady,
You look good. You really do. Just be safe. Me on a bike? Snort – you have to be kidding. Bikes don’t have doors. I’ve got to protect this work of art. The closest I get to a cycle is moms Smart car. Snort LOL. Ride on my friend.

Dear Bacon,
I love leather. I love the feel of it against my fur. Can you be honest and tell me if this jacket gives me chicken legs? Signed Biker Chick

Dear Biker CHICK,
So your question is does your leather jacket make you “look” like you have chicken legs? Now that’s a good questions. No, not at all. Your jacket doesn’t give that appearance at all. I think that diamond necklace draws attention to that gorgeous face of yours. Walking off shaking head laughing.

Dear Bacon,
Hee hee. You’re always talking about those purr things that you love with on your page. I thought I would share a picture of what I do to my purr things. Laughing. I hide around corners until they walk by me. I think my purr thing only has maybe two life’s left. Rolling around laughing. Signed Gotcha

Dear Gotcha,
I have to admit that this is a good one. I will be saving it for future reference… I mean future not to do. Yeah, that’s it. Thanks my friend.

Dear Bacon,
Have you ever played patty cake? Me and my dears have a great time playing this during the day. It makes the day go by so much faster. We’re getting really good at it. I think that it should be made into an Olympic Game, don’t you? When one of us misses a move, another of our friends jump in to replace them. It’s a hoot! It makes our down season, I mean our life go by so quickly. Signed Reindeer Gamers

Dear Reindeer Gamers,
No. I can’t say that I’ve ever played patty cake. My hooves are kind of oddly shaped. And, I really don’t have that kind of balance with this pot belly if you know what I mean. It gets in the way when I try to ‘stand’. It looks kind of fun though. Perhaps you should video tape it and let it go viral on line at YouTube. Have fun my friends.

Dear Bacon,
I know you can relate man. You talk about your snout. Heck, look at my snout per say. It’s a sharp situation. No touching noses with this thing my friend. Signed Horny

Dear Horny,
Ouch. You got me on that one. Be safe with that thing my friend.
