Rocky’s Nut Brunch

Welcome my friends to another week of Rocky’s Nut Brunch.  Today I want to share something with you that I found and was in awe about.  In fact, I immediately had to call Bacon’s dad and tell him.  This was huge news.  Do you know who Lee Jun-fan is?  Maybe you know him better from his stage name – Bruce Lee.  Bells go off now?  He was a Hong Kong and American actor famous for his martial art skills.  He was even the founder of his own studio in the martial art Jeet Kune Do.  The man had skills upon skills with his moves.  He is also known for his quotes.  One of them being:

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless and add what is specifically your own

That makes you think doesn’t it?  But I’m done yet blowing your mind on Bruce Lee.  Let’s talk about Bruce Lee way back when he was a teenager.  In 1958, what championship do you think he won?  Go ahead and guess.  I bet you never would guess the answer.  We were all shocked here at the Hotel Thompson.  What was it?  In 1958, Bruce Lee was the Hong Kong Cha Cha championship winner.  Stunner huh?  So there you go, that blows our minds.  Did you know this?

Paw Time with Houdini

See I can be a good boy… most of the time anyway.  But on this particular day, I had the patience of a saint!  Really I did.  Remember last Sunday being Mother’s Day?  Well, the one thing that my mommy doesn’t get a lot of is sleeping in on the weekends.  So Sunday, daddy got all of us up and out of the bedroom so mom could just sleep in.  He fed us all and we tried to stay quiet.  Of course daddy feeding us isn’t the same as mommy feeding us and talking to us.  But we gave her a day.

I sat patiently on daddy and the side of the couch waiting for mom to come out of their bedroom and down the hall.  I was on guard waiting… waiting… and then waiting some more… and then it happened.

Mom came out of the bedroom!

I’m not sure which one of us was more happy.  We barked, grunted and meowed and then dad grunted cause he was happy mommy was finally going to take him out to eat… of course her choice of restaurant for her day.  And then, you know letting those two out together there is going to be some trouble.  Check out the video they made Mother’s Day.  Shaking my head.  Even after almost 30 years, those two are gross.

Watch Out Ax Body Spray

  My mom and dad have got to quit going out and shopping.  Earlier today, they came home laughing.  Why you ask?  They showed me this picture – Bacon Body Spray.  ALL I have to say is, “What the piggy are people thinking?”

Bacon Body Spray – really?  No mom and dad didn’t buy this product.  I kind of wished they had though.  Exactly what does Bacon Body Spray smell like?  I don’t smell.  Really I don’t.  I’m very clean.  So how would people really know what Bacon Body Spray should smell like?  Can you tell me that my friends?

Has someone ever made a spray out of you?

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 all of us here at the Hotel Thompson –

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY – WE LOVE YOU!!

Rocky’s Nut Brunch

I admit that sometimes as a squirrel, I have a lot of time on my hands.  I know I live in a good neighborhood and don’t really have a need for much.  Bacon’s parents keeps me and my family in nuts and water.  There are no big dogs chasing us in our yard – just Houdini and Bacon and well we pretty much all get along.  So sometimes just for giggles, I will read the dictionary.  The family especially loves it – we learn so much.  For instance, like something I’m fixing to share with you.  Be prepared to be educated my friends.

The longest word in the Oxford English Dictionary is 45 letters long:  pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.  What does this mean?  It is an artificial long word said to mean a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust.  WOW – really?  A long word that is actually a joke.

The longest well-known nonsense word is 34 letters: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Anyone versed in their Mary Poppins can define this for themselves, but according to Oxford the fanciful adjective means “extraordinarily good.”

The longest non-coined, non-technical word published in multiple dictionaries is 28 letters long: Antidisestablishmentarianism. What does it actually mean? It is used to refer to a 19th century political party opposed to the disestablishment of the Church of England—but today it mainly means “I know a really long word.”

Don’t Come Knocking On My Door

Today for my afternoon nap, dad tucked me in bed with some celery and carrots and I watched The Three Little Pigs on my flatscreen.  I know it’s old school from the 1930’s but I love Mr. Disney and his movies.  This is like the upteenth time I’ve seen movie and I have some thoughts.

Let’s talk about the pig names first.  Practical Pig, Fiddler Pig and Fifer Pig.  Really?   Did you know that they even had names?  Couldn’t come up with something unique like Bacon, huh?  Ham, Sushi and Maxwell were taken?

So Fiddler Pig plays the fiddle and Fifer Pig plays the flute.  – puts my hoove to my head – how original.  They went the cheap way and made their houses of straw and sticks.  They did it quickly so they could play their lovely musical instruments all day long.  What a party that must have been!

Then let’s discuss something that’s kind of ironical.  Did anyone else notice this scene in the movie?  Do you see “Father” in the photograph on the wall?  Really?  Mr. Disney bravo to you for having such a wicked sense of humor.  Goodness, it took me almost 3 times watching to catch this.  I asked mom what did it mean?  Was that their father?  I didn’t quite understand.  Mom said that when I got older she would explain.  Translation – it’s something bad.

Leave it to Practical Pig to build his house of brick.  He tried to warn his two little brothers who wanted to play all day but they didn’t listen.  They went on with their little jamboree while Practical Pig spent the extra money and time and built for the future not for the moment.Then enter the big bad wolf.  Practical Pig tried to warn Fiddler and Fifer Pig but they didn’t want to listen.  That big bad wolf puffed and huffed and blew the house of sticks and house of straw down.  What did the brothers do?  Run to brother’s house to have him save them.  Of course, Practical Pig *always* has an exit plan.  Big Bad Wolf didn’t want to listen and tried his best to get in the house finally thinking he had a way through the fireplace.  I bet he was surprised when he dropped in for dinner and HE was the dinner!

So bottom line on this story.  Apparently this big bad wolf didn’t meet my ancestors – PigBrutus, PigSpartacus and PigDynomite. They don’t put up with much bull from anyone. They learned from great, great, great, great Uncle PiggyJohnWayne.

So, do you see the story in a different light now?  Do you understand my thoughts?  What are your views?
