Travels in the South
Hello friends to another week of Travels in the South. This week mom wants to share something that she recently found one night while her and dad were out on date night.
Now mom is not a huge wine drinker – I mean define huge, right? Mom will have an occasional glass of wine every once in a while – not too often though since she’s been trying to change her eating habits.
But one of mom’s favorite types of wine is Moscato. And this night mom tried a Moscato Delle Venezie Primo Amore.
Mom fell in LOVE with this wine. She talked about it for nights afterwards. See the glass of wine – it has little bubbles in the wine. And who doesn’t like bubbles – rolls piggy eyes. No seriously mom said this wine was smooth and wonderful – one of the best Moscato’s she has ever had.
So my friends, if you see this bottle in the market, buy one and try it.
Travels in the South
Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Travels in the South. Today we are making a twist in a regular food posting. Today mom wants to share something she found at our local market over the weekend – so you know it’s gotta be good, right? Every now and then, mom likes to partake in the grapes and by that I mean the spirits… no not that kind of spirits – the alcohol spirits. Snorts with piggy laughter. The downside is that if she opens a bottle of wine, it usually goes bad before she finishes it. She doesn’t drink very often and we all know mom who likes to save money.
So this weekend, she found these little jewels in the wine aisle. They are new to our area. They are individual one serving little ‘glasses’ of wine. The bottles are actually plastic. You pop the plastic top, take off the safety covering and there you go – drink on up my friend. If you can’t finish it, put the plastic top back on and put it back in the fridge. Now aren’t those the cutest things you’ve ever seen? They come in four flavors right now: cabernet sauvignon, red sangria, chardonnay and moscato. AND they cost about $3.00 a glass.
Mom had to buy one of every flavor for the new fridge. You know just in case the desire hits her and she needs some vino. What do you think? Have you seen these in your area?
This Special Delivery Rocks
OH FRIENDS – Wonder no more. Check out where my little Bashful is and the adventures have already begun! ❤ XOXO – Bacon
Last Friday, my little sister and I received a very special delivery from our sweet little piggy friend Bacon. (If you already know Bacon, then you know what a special little pig he is. If you don’t know Bacon, click here to link to his blog. I promise you’ll fall in love.) To say that our box from Bacon sent both of us into a tizzy would be quite the understatement. It was packed full of everything a girl could ever want.
Tallulah and I were especially obsessed over the pink piggy toy. We spent quite a bit of time trying to dismember him, but he’s tough and managed to survive . . . at least for the first round.
As fabulously fun as the pink piggy toy and the fancy treats were, there was something even more special in that little box from Bacon. Meet Bashful, Bacon’s pet rock. As…

Daddy is a Smart Man
Yep, I said that out loud and you did not hear things. This little oinker admits that there are times that dad steps up to the plate and thinks ahead. Today was a special day for mom in theory – you know because it was Professional Administrative Day. Well, as you can imagine mom has four bosses and 30 co-workers that she does work for and not one said anything today on the official day. No card. No flowers. No lunch. No emails. No thank you. No acknowledgement. Zip. Nada. This broke mine and dad’s heart especially knowing how much mom gives and does. Is it really too much to ask for to be acknowledged and thanked at least ONE day out of the year? Shakes my piggy head.
But me and dad came up with a plan. When mom got home, we had a bubble bath ready for her and she had her choice of these two items – one with the bath and one after the bath. I know she’s on that DIEt thing but come on – she deserves it.
AND if you my friends have humans that got overlooked today too – I’m so sorry. Please give your human a hog and snout kiss from me and tell them we think they are wonderful! ❤
Dear Bacon – We are all trying to do everything we can this time of the year to make more money for Christmas. I’m working on chaperoning humans around that kind of party too much. Hey, it’s just one of those things of giving and caring you know. And don’t worry. Those that I pick up don’t remember me driving them anywhere let alone the money I take out of their wallet – barks! Signed Duber
Dear Duber – Dude that is an awesome service. And you are right, no one will remember the great service that you are rendering. Stay safe my pal and drive between the lines!
Dear Bacon – It’s going to get cold soon in these parts. I gotta make sure we have enough wood for the fireplace to keep the house nice and toasty. When the humans go to work, so do I! But don’t worry, safety first with this ax. Signed Lineman of the County
Dear Lineman of the County – AWESOME! Bravo – bravo – bravo my friend. That is some thinking of ahead to make sure you stay warm. And if the humans stay warm – that means you get more play time and treats. That is a most excellent idea.
P.S. You know where I can get some of those boots in a pig size 3?
Dear Bacon – Talk about a hart day. I’m telling you beautiful life is so hard some days keeping up with all of the activities this time of the year. There’s the hairballs to fuss up. There’s the dogs to keep in line. There’s the hiding from the yearly Christmas card that goes out. There’s the singing at midnight to be scheduled. There’s the pouncing on the keyboards when the humans want computer time. Sigh – see – it’s a hard life being this good. I just want to kick back in my recliner at the end of the day with a glass of wine. How do you keep your sanity? Signed Kitty Pinot Noir
Dear Kitty Pinot Noir – WOW – You make happiness look so good my little purr friend. When you put everything down the way you did, your life is active. I myself try to take many, MANY naps during the day. This keeps me sprite and ready for mom when she returns home at the end of the day from her worky place. Cause we all know that when the homes get home, it’s game time!
Dear Bacon – It’s that time of the year! Finally all of the great movies come on television that scream HOLIDAYS. This is me from over the weekend. I looked at the television guide that morning and saw that my movie of the season was coming on that night. Got in my jammies, took out my contacts and had the popcorn ready for my netflix and chill – HOME ALONE. Dude, can that Kevin scream or what? I absolutely love that movie. It just shouts Merry Christmas!! Signed Dog Alone
Dear Dog Alone – OMP! That’s one of my mom’s favorites too. She says it’s not Christmas time until she watches that movie on television. What a coincidence you two have. I say go for it my friend and make the holidays happen for you. I myself love to watch Rudolph every year. That is my Christmas show to start the season. Enjoy and be safe!
REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send me your letters and pictures to my email. Thanks!
Dear Bacon – I’m just being friendly. That’s it. Really I am. He looked so lonely in the cage. I just thought I would pop in to say hey and you know give him a reassuring pat of assurance from me. That’s it. Really. Signed Felix the Friendly Kitty
Dear Felix the Friendly Kitty – Sure buddy. Whatever you say. Just remember though that the proof is now in pictures. That means no mistakes in your friendly ‘pats of assurance’. Just sayin’ my friend.
Dear Bacon – I’ve heard you come from a long line of football players. We know not players per say but footballs themselves – Barks! Well, we gotta game going in our hood all of the time. Next time you are in the area, join us. And don’t worry, we won’t deflate the ball at all. Signed Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady
Dear Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady – What guys you are. Thanks for the invite and I will definitely keep that in mind. Can’t wait for the football season to start this year!.
Dear Bacon – There was this pot that mom had on the porch. She grows beautiful things in it. So I was thinking that I’m a puppy and maybe for me to grow into something beautiful, I would pot myself. I jumped in and added water. Is it working yet? Signed Puppy Flower
Dear Puppy Flower – I don’t really think that is how it happens my friend. But on the other hoof, you look really cute in that bucket. And hey you got a bath out of it too. I say just be you. You are going to grow up soon enough. And remember one final thought buddy. You are already beautiful.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes no matter how small you are, one needs to draw the line. The humans put me in a wine glass. What.were.they.thinking? A wine glass. I’m not a wine glass kind of pup. I think I’m more of an oversized coffee cup kind of pooch. What do you think? Signed Small Barks
Dear Small Barks – I have to say my friend, either way I think you are cute in either a wine glass or a coffee cup. I think you should play it for everything it’s worth. Make the humans pay in so many different ways – extra treats, extra puppy chow. .
Dear Bacon – I have to say a puppy power nap is sometimes the best thing you can do. I highly recommend them any time during the day or night. Take notes from me pal. Don’t forget your blankie and pillow. Signed Sleepy Town
Dear Sleepy Town – WOW! You are the posted child for a puppy power nap my friend. I love it and trust me. I am so taking notes!
REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon issues can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to email me your picture and letters.
Lowers Piggy Head – I’m in Trouble my Friends
This is me in time out. Sighs. Mom says I have to pay the time for the crime. I don’t get it. I was just helping her out. You have to believe me on that. AND if you take my side after I tell you the story, then please write me a note to get me out of piggy jail in the comments. Will you do that my friends?
So this is what happened. We were all in the living room watching the ID channel. For those that don’t know what the ID channel is – ID stands for Investigative Discovery. They have ALL kinds of forensic shows of real crimes that take place from all over the world and how forensics solved them. On the show that we were watching, the victim was in a vegetative state and had a living will to be taken off of all life saving equipment if such a thing happened to her.
My mom was over on her chaise working on my laptop that was plugged into the wall. She had been pounding that keyboard for hours now. She was also drinking a glass of wine and had sat the glass on the floor. She told all of us – Mouse Girl, Hemi, Houdini and daddy, that if she was ever in a vegetative state, she didn’t want to be dependent on a machine or fluids from a bottle. She told us that if that happened, to pull the plug. She said that my friends.
I was just doing what she asked. I got up, unplugged her laptop and knocked over her glass of wine. I don’t think she thought I was helping her from her current vegetative state. Snorts. What say you?
