Happy Mothers Day Moms!!

Today is a wonderful and glorious day – Mother’s Day.  I appreciate my birth mother, Bertha, and I love her very much.  If it wasn’t for her and my dad Champ, I wouldn’t be here, right?  Snorts.  So I’m very thankful for my mother – Happy Mother’s Day mommy Bertha.

 I’m also very thankful for my adopted mother.  Mommy Bertha gave me life but my adopted mom gave me a home full of love.

I’m also very thankful for my nana.  If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have my adopted mommy.  See how these things work?

I am so excited to share this date with you my friends and wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and snuggable hugs.

Trivia Knowledge – did you know that the first Mother’s Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia.  That’s good trivia knowledge that I learned from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.

So from me, Houdini, Hemi, Mouse Girl, the ‘rock’ clan and Journalist Rocky the Squirrel –

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL OF THE MOTHERS OUT THERE – We ♥ YOU!

Bashful Came Home… and He’s Off Again!

 Squeals to the piggy heavens!  My sweet Bashful came home Saturday from spending Thanksgiving with my cousin Sammy in Virginia.  Let me tell you something my friends, we stayed up so late Saturday night listening to stories and meeting his new “friend”.  OMP – can you do a rock whistle?

 She came out of the box all giggles and laughs.  In fact, she bounced out so fast thank goodness daddy caught her when she was blowing kisses at him.  She is a looker!  Also when Bashful came out of the box, his little face was full of red lipstick.  I wonder what they were doing in the box together for the ride back home to the Hotel Thompson?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

    But my friends, we had to ask the beauty what her name was.  She has been very shy in saying it.  We finally got it though – Virginia Blue Eyes.  Isn’t that beautiful just like she is?  She told us stories of her home in Virginia and that she has always wanted to travel to other parts of the world – especially here in the south where she fits right in.  Dad says that she is kind of like Marilyn Monroe – old school movie star.  Personally, I’m thinking she has all of the other rocks and mom/dad wrapped around her.

Also in the box was Mrs. Smith and Mr. Fields piggy ornaments.  Aren’t they cute as buttons?!  We have them in a special spot in our living room now and we LOVE them.  Thanks Cousin Sammy for the great gifts and for hosting our little guy Bashful.

And you know what my friends?  Bashful got mailed out Sunday to his next destination.  It was just a short layover here overnight and then off to the wild blue yonder.  Where will he land for Christmas?  Who will host him next?  Will it be warm or cold?  We shall see soon!

Collect Rocks Day

 

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 .

Today, September 16th is Collect Rocks Day!  This day is right up Bacon’s alley.  You know because Bacon collects rocks.  Not just any rocks but pet rocks.

Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy your pet rocks.  Pet rocks are not just stones that sit there all day.  They are individuals.  They are pets.  They have wonderful attitudes. And might I add – they are PROS at Hide and Go Seek.  One time, Bashful hid in the fish tank and it took us almost three days to find him – that was fun!  So you see, they also have a sense of humor.

It doesn’t matter what they look like.  It doesn’t matter what economical background they come from.  All that matters is the love and fun that is had with your rocks.  Sounds like humans should take note of this huh?

So from all of the rock clan here at the Hotel Thompson (Bashful, Chip, Manny, Princess Coralena, Virginia, Benedict Cumberock, Koishi, Rockelle, Speedy Rock and Hudson) Happy Collect Rocks Day!

Oh and P.S.  Don’t let Bacon’s mom fool you.  She has a rock fetish too.  She wants to collect her very own rock – as in this picture of Rock – chitter chatter – isn’t she funny!?

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER

 HOGS AND KISSES – it’s a wonderful and joyous day!

I love Easter.  I love everything about it.  I love the fun.  I love the excitement.  I love the actual meaning of Easter.  I love it all!

Mom makes is so special for all of us.  She fixes us all baskets just for us – squeals!  She leaves them out the night before and we each get to come into the room to find our basket.

The purr things got their usual of cat treats, a bag of Iams – their favorite and a couple of play mice.  They were happy – more so for the basket then what was in it – snorts.  Silly purr things.  They are so weird playing with their basket before finding their stuff inside.  Shakes piggy head.

Houdini got a little basket full of dog treats – he loves them – and some little toys shaped like Angry Birds.  Snorts – I think dad is going to confiscate them.  Houdini tries to help daddy play his game and loves the swooshing sound of the birds.

The rock clan – we can’t forget them now can we – they got a basket with Rock Candy 🙂  Benedict, Manny, Virginia, Princess Coralena, Rockelle, Bashful and some others 🙂 you haven’t heard about … yet.  Coming soon don’t worry my friends.  Mom’s hands are just a tad bit full right now.  Don’t give up on her.

And Dad loves his Angry Birds games so this year mom had him a cake made with Angry Birds on it – sweet!  It is fabulous and gorgeous!  I would share a pic but once mom sliced it, it looked like that red bird bled out – snorts.

And me?  You asked what did the Easter Bunny bring me?  ALL kinds of goodies.

20130312-101826.jpg

I got a yearly pot full of my special treats! I noticed last week that my big bucket was MIA (missing in action) here at the Hotel Thompson.  That Easter Bunny is sneaky.  He must have come in last week and took my bucket to fill up with all of these goodies.  Look in that bucket –

  • Animal crackers – yes the convenient size – snort.
  • Yellow squash and eggplant.   I love it chopped up and raw.
  • Carrots – look at the size of those master pieces!
  • Oranges and apples.
  • And my training raisins were in the bottom of the bucket.  I only get raisins when mom is teaching me new tricks.  I guess she’s up to training again.

YUMMY – this pig struck the gold mine!   I think personally the Easter Bunny likes me the best, don’t you?  But I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.

Everyone is having a blast on this special day.  I hope you and yours also have a spectacular Easter my friends!

Bacon and friends at the Hotel Thompson 🙂

Guess Who Came Home?!

IMG_0597

 Jumping all around and squealing.  Guess who came home yesterday. Go ahead – guess.  Can you guess?  Do you know?  Do you want a hint?  Go ahead guess.  BASHFUL my international rolling stone.  He’s been spending time with my buddy Speedy in the United Kingdom the past couple of months.  He has told all of us some awesome stories of adventures he had with Speedy.  They danced and boogied to the radio.  Played in the garden together.  Met some ponies and some girls ❤  And of course some things that happened in the United Kingdom – stays in the United Kingdom – snorts.

The mailman delivered a box to the steps of the Hotel Thompson and once we opened it, we found a booty of goodies.  Bashful dressed like a pirate.  Pirate coins, notebooks and a sleeping bag!  Can you believe the goodies?!

IMG_0595.JPGAnd you know what?  Bashful came home with a friend – cheers, screams and snorts.  May we present to you Speedy Rock to the left.  Awesome – spectacular – fun – amazing.  Look at the resemblance to Speedy – all the way to the ears to the bushy tail.  OMP (oh my pig!)  We were snorting with delight here.

And the gals – Princess Coralena, Virginia, Rockelle and Koishi were falling all over him and his accent… or was it his eye patch?  I think they are all in ❤ and hey – what’s there not to be in love with, right?

Thanks Speedy for showing my tyke a most excellent adventure.  And I guess that brings up the next question.  Just where in the world will Bashful show up next?  And to those that have signed up on the list to host Bashful, don’t give up.  We are slowly working down the list.  It might take a while, but it will get to you.

7 Weeks of Weird

Today my new friend here is highlighting 7 weeks of weird in “Weirdest things you collect”.

This is a really easy week.  It really is.  I think most of my friends here know that I collect a really weird item.  What?  You don’t know?  Sure you do.  I collect pet rocks. 🙂   You think that’s weird enough?

You know that it all started with my first pet rock Bashful.  He was a gift.  He’s my little international rolling stone and travels around the world visiting my friends and having fun. He looks so innocent and has an innocent name but don’t let that fool you.  He’s quite the ladies rock – snorts.  Every time he goes somewhere, he always brings home a friend.

His friends include Princess Coralena from Hawaii, Manny from France, Rockelle from Australia, Virginia from Virginia,  Benedict Cumberock from the United Kingdom and Koishi from Japan.

Special Thank You To My Buddy Stuart

 SQUEAL!!

Yep, you probably heard me SQUEALING all the way where you live this past weekend.  I got mail! A package addressed to moi – Bacon Thompson here at the Hotel Thompson.  I was so very excited.  I tore opened the package with a vengeance ever so carefully to see what was inside of the brown box.

SQUEAL!!

It was a talking oinking bag clip that my buddy Stuart sent me from Smithfield, Virginia.  Stuart most have been reading my diary to find out how much I absolutely ❤ potato chips and such.  This clip will so come in handy.  Yes sir it sure will.  With this awesome oinking clip, I will know exactly when daddy is in my food – snorts.

Thanks pal of mine Stuart – I ❤ you back with all my piggy heart!

And He’s Off Again

We had a wonderful LONG weekend here with the rock clan.  We all got together and had a Bon Voyage party for Bashful.  He is now off again to parts unknown.  Where or where will that little rock of mine roll up to next?

Could it be here?  Could it be there?  In the states or across the pond?  On the other side of the world?  I’m not telling.  Nope.  I’m keeping a secret.  There’s nothing you can do to make me talk.  Nope.  Not at all.  My piggy lips are sealed.  Only two other people know.. well maybe three.  Mommy, the nice Mr. Postman guy and the host family.  And none of them are talking either.  Anyone want to take a guess?

Soon…. we shall know hopefully soon.

.

.

And you should have seen all of the girls here crying over Bashful.  Princess Coralena, Virginia, Rockelle and Koishi.  I’m not sure which one was crying the most!

.

.

UPDATE:  Mom always sends off Bashful at the post office closest to her worky place.  I want you to know that the staff there now truly knows that mom is certifiable and should be wearing a white jacket that buttons in the back.  They have been inquiring about the boxes that she sends off.  She told them today what was actually in the boxes.  You should have seen the looks on their faces – PRICELESS.  I mean truly PRICELESS.  The response of, “You have a what that you do what with?” and “Girl, you need a hobby.”

These were said in fun and mom just laughed it all off smiling.  Then she threw in the icing on the cake.  She told them that the rock wasn’t actually hers, it was mine… a pig.  Oh dear piggy heavens.  Daddy laughed and said he was surprised that they didn’t pick up the phone right there and then.

But it’s not weird.  My pet rock travels.  He’s good at it and has a lot of great and giving friends that like to host him and show him a good time.  Shakes piggy head.  I don’t see anything wrong with that.  Do you?  Snorts.
