Shopping Around the World

Oinks and snorts sweet friends.

This month my cousin Teddy is hosting Shopping Around the World for me.  (You might want to make a note now that cousin Teddy will also be hosting for me next month as well.)   Thank you so much cousin Teddy – we really appreciate the help here during these hectic times at the Hotel Thompson.

This month the assignment was favorite snacks.  Now mom has been enjoying a favorite snack that she kind of whipped up (literally) that she can’t get enough of at work.  She says that sometimes she needs the extra caffeine.  Rolls my piggy eyes.  I guess since she has given up sodas she has to make it up somehow huh?  I hope you enjoy her snack my friends.  It seems mom proof which means it might be a little easy – I hope.

First you need some ingredients:  Creamer.  Mom loves the Almond Joy creamer – but any kind will do.  This entire bottle was $2.50 and it lasts mom for almost three weeks.  That averages to about $0.12 a cup for creamer.  Two packs of Splenda.  A box of 100 cost $3.00 therefore that is $0.03 per packet.  12 ice cubes – free YAY.  1 cup of cold coffee.  Mom paid $6.00 for a container of coffee that makes something like 32 pots of coffee which calculates to $0.19 a pot.

Total cost for mom’s treat is less than $0.50 – what a steal for a cup of instant energy.

Now how does she make this wonder?  Put all ingredients into a blender.  Make sure blender is plugged in (mom has forgotten that important step in the past – snorts) and push blend button for smoothie.  There you go bend and then pour into a cup.  Add straw and enjoy your moment in the afternoon… or morning… or evening… or in the middle of the night.  Mom makes this snack all of the time now.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

 This month, we are focusing again on embarrassing moments.  There is so many things that our humans do that is embarrassing – it’s sometimes hard to pick just one for sure.  But don’t worry, this month we are blasting daddy again… snorts with piggy laughter.  It’s what I do – what can I say?

Many years ago, mom/dad chartered a boat to themselves and went deep sea fishing.  The Captain of the boat happened to be a woman that mom/dad knew and they always had such a blast together.  So there they were about 50 miles from the shore having a great time.  Daddy is fishing away loving every minute of it while mom is talking to the ocean gods and feeding the fish if you know what I mean.  That’s when it happened.  What you ask?  Well dad started reeling in to catch a fish, pulled back on his pole and the shorts he was wearing fell down around his ankles.  Now several things happened.  Mom rolled hysterically and was of absolute no help.  Captain Elizabeth stepped in hiding her laughter to take charge.  She looked at daddy and said, “You want me to pull up your shorts or take the pole?”  Dad of course said take the pole, laughed and said thank goodness he wore underwear.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Thanks to everyone that participated in my Bacon’s Show and Tell last month – did you have fun?  I know we did here at the Hotel Thompson. We absolutely LOVE these Show and Tell pictures and stories. 

For this month – we want to know what was your all time favorite toy growing up.  Do you have a picture?  How long did you keep it?  What did this toy do?  Share the story of your favorite toy and what it meant to you my friends.

My moms favorite toy growing up was a game called Perfection.  You get a quick 60 seconds to place 25 pieces of various shapes and sizes into the correct spot. If you get them before your time is up, you win. If you don’t get them in time, all the pieces pop up all over the place scaring the beejeesus out of you… Well so mom says. Mom got really good at the game. So good in fact that she would get people she could do it for a $1.00 – so even then mom was working it – snorts with piggy laughter.
