Oh dear piggy heavens my friends in blogville. What has my Bashful been up to you ask? As you can see in this picture, Bashful is happy, smiling and have an awesome time in Florida.
My friends Reilly and Denny have brought Bashful to many outings with them in their parks. Bashful seems to be having the time of his life with Sweet Pea.
In fact, both of them are learning about nature and other wildlife in Florida. And in some pictures oh my! Once they were reviewing the pictures at home, they saw something spooky! It would be right up my ally in my Bacon’s Tales of Terror – shivers.
So go check out my Bashful’s activities my friends. And remember, tell them that Bacon sent you! ❤

Oh Squeals my friends – guess who made it home?? That pet-rock of mine Bashful!
He came knocking on the front door of the Hotel Thompson late Monday afternoon. I was so excited. I could hear the little tyke snoring in the box and knew exactly what it was. Of course, daddy said I had to wait until mommy got home from the worky place to let Bashful out to freedom. And that was good because the little guy was snoring so sweetly – imagine the trip across the pond. I would have been passed out too!
But once mommy got home and the box was opened – oh my piggy heavens. Bashful was non-stop talking about all of his adventures with sweet Fozzie in Australia. WOW – did he do bunches of cool things. One of the things was he went up in a hot air balloon and not only soared with the clouds but got a certificate about it as well. OMP Squeals!! If you want to read all about Bashful’s travels and adventures while in Australia, a great place to start will be here.
And look at all of the treats Bashful came home with – double squeals. Me and mom were fighting dad off of the cookies. They are so delicious!! And of course, Bashful came home with friends…. but that’s another story for another posting that is coming soon. Real soon. Be ready my friends – it’s a stunner!
And just where in the world will Bashful roll up to next? hhmm – makes you wonder doesn’t it. Will it be in your neck of the woods? (P.S. For those on the list, you haven’t been forgotten. It just takes time. An email will be sent to the next person very soon for the next adventure. AND, if YOU want to be put on the list, email me at Bacon.Thompson@gmail.com my friends).

This just in – mom received word a couple of days ago and just NOW told me that Bashful my little international rolling stone has landed at his destination. Can you believe that mom just told me??!! She said she forgot. That mom of mine – what am I going to do with her? I was getting scared for the little tyke and was giving him until tomorrow before I called out the Coast Guard.
So little Bashful is with his host family and all is well. AND they are going to post something soon. Can you wait? Isn’t this exciting? I’m so tickled that I’m rolling around on the floor chasing my tail – don’t tell anyone okay. Let that be our little secret.
You want to know where he is? You do, don’t you? Well, my lips are sealed. I’m waiting for the mysterious destination host family to tell you.

Bashful made it back to the Hotel Thompson from Australia!
We all stayed up really late last night talking about his travels and misadventures. OMP (oh my pig)! He had a blast down under. And like Las Vegas, some things that happened in Australia stay in Australia if you know what I mean – winks winks.
You’re not going to accept that, are you? You want the juicy details of his wicked time with Bimby while making his short silent movie Rockadile Dundee. I’m sorry.
I can’t tell you any of the juicy details. Bashful said that a gentlerock does not talk about his ladies. aaaww – I raised that little pebble right!
The little international rolling stone came home with some great treasures of his time spent with his host family. The above left handed picture is Bashful in his suit that he wore to the wedding. What a handsome little guy! He now refers to that suit as his 007 Rock Bond outfit. What a riot! He told me late last night that he wore his suit out one night when he took Bimby out for a date – 🙂
The picture to the right is of Bashful and his Australian outback hat. What a looker! And you see that item behind him? That is a hand painted boomerang from Australia that came home with him. I’ve already caught him throwing it around the house. We’ve all learned how to duck really fast with that thing flying about. And never fear about his cross eyed look in the picture. I think he was slightly inebriated from the long flight home. You know, they’ll serve anyone a drink these days in the happy air above. I guess there is no ‘under age’ in the sky.
This picture to the left is of the other goodies that Bashful came home with that was in his luggage. Stickers of all different things – Koala bears, snakes and Kangaroos. Bashful told me that I could have some of them to put in our bedroom – I can’t wait to decorate my board.
And you know, they didn’t forget mom either. See that fluffy pen in the picture? It’s a Mickey Mouse pen! It lights up when you write with it. Mommy is in love with that pen. I do believe she took it to the worky place so she can use/look at it every day.
Fozziemom and company was even so nice to send the purr things some treats. Trust me, those little vultures jumped on that bag like it was crack!
And talking about crack – snorts. See that can to the left beside the Koala pouch, Bashful is hooked on that stuff! Mom/dad tried some last night and gave me a small bite. OMP (oh my pig!). It is GOOD! No wonder that little Bashful couldn’t stay out of it. It’s peppermint glory.
And you’re probably wondering about that Koala pouch. It is the cutest little thing that zips up. There was something amazing in that little pouch. I’m getting too ahead of myself so you’ll have to wait for what it was. I promise to tell you.
And of course, we have to show a picture of the intellectual Bashful with his glasses on and sporting his hat. Can you believe he went to bed last night wearing that? And yes, he used his specks when he was reading to us out loud about his adventures in his travel log.
Can you believe that we also had a slide show of his side trip to Sydney? Oh gracious – it was a hoot. He visited so many places while down under. I think we will be hearing about his tales for some time to come.
But, we are talking about the international rolling stone – my Bashful. He will be home for a couple of more days and then he is off to his next host family and his next adventure. Where will it be? Only me and the next host family will know.
But before he hops that plane, we had to take some family pictures of the “Rock Clan”. There they all are on their sofa in their bedroom getting to know each other.
From left to right, they are:
Princess Coralena (from Hawaii), Mannie (from France), Virginia (from Virginia), Bashful and wait a minute – who is that?
May I introduce you to the newest member of the Hotel Thompson. This is Rockelle from Australia. She is in this picture wearing Bashful’s Australian hat and wait – what is that? She is siding up with Bashful and they are a twosome?! Stop the presses – Bashful came home with a girlfriend?! And they know how to grow them in Australia. She has the cutest little accent and look at that purple eyeshadow. She has so woo’ed the little guy.
And you’re probably wondering about how Princess Coralena must be feeling about this. Well, let’s just say there’s going to be a rock fight about whose rock Bashful really is. I can feel it in my bones. But Bashful, he’s a young tyke. He needs to experience life right now. He can always settle down when he hangs up his travel boots, right?
So, to Fozziemom and clan – thank you so much for hosting a great time for the little fellow. I know he had an awesome time and will always cherish his memories with you in Australia. You were great.
But the bottom question remains – where will Bashful end up next?

Every once in a while, us purr things at the Hotel Thompson have to put oinker Bacon in his place. This is me (Hemi) to the right and Mouse Girl to the left. I’m not sure how many times we are going to have to hack this pig’s blog to make him understand that Cats Rule – Pigs Drool!
I’m sure that as friends of Bacon, you would agree that we have a certain chemistry – a certain mystery to us. Right?
And enough with all of this traveling with Bashful. Hey, we understand he’s cute but come on. I’m sitting in this box until mom makes a couple of air holes for me and sends me to Australia. I want to see some kangaroos too. Why does the rock get all of the fun?
Talking rocks, another thing us purr things want to discuss. What’s up with all of the nightly rock concerts in Bacon’s bedroom? Princess Coralena, Virginia and Manny seem to be rocking to some classics behind the closed door a lot lately. I’m not sure what’s going on in there with those three but they seem to be making a lot of noise and skyping A LOT lately.
hhhmm – We purr things are going to have to fix some of these problems. Anyone behind us? Anyone at all?
