There Is A New Virus Out Now – Warning

Oh piggy heavens above! Oh my friends.  I hate to be the one to tell you this but there is a deadly virus going around these parts.  You need to protect yourself STAT!  It’s awful and can hit you at any time.

In fact, the virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).  If you come in contact with the WORK virus, you should immediately go to the nearest Biological Anxiety Relief (BAR) center to take antidotes known as Working Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE), Radioactive UnWORK Medicine (RUM), Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER) or Vaccine Official Depression Killing Agent (VODKA).

Don’t be a victim my friends – take action NOW!

National Stress Awareness Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

.

Today April 16th is a day that Bacon’s mom can definitely wrap her arms around – National Stress Awareness Day.  This day was created in 1992 sponsored by  the Health Resource Network (HRN). They started this holiday to increase public awareness of the causes and cures of stress.  And we all know that stress can come from a variety of different reasons:  paying bills, work, children, schedules, car problems, friends – you name it and stress can come from it.  And here in the United States with taxes being due yesterday, what better day to have this holiday then today?

Today is the day to acknowledge that you are stressed out and then do something about it.  Go for a walk.  Try some meditation.  Try some exercise.  Do some yoga.  Just lay down and relax.  Just for a bit, don’t concentrate on the wrongs in your life but concentrate on the things that you have to be grateful for.  Shrug off this stress even if it is just for today.  I know this afternoon me and Bacon are going to try yoga.  Wish us luck – his downward pig pose is not something I’m looking forward to – chitter chatter!

Journey with Friends

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Hey my friends.  How did you do last week?  I’m still bouncing right along trying to cook more at home, eating better and walking when I can. Sometimes I get too focused on something and overdo.  Do you know what I mean?  Since a couple of weeks ago when I tweaked my way of eating a bit and not pushing myself so much to do walking, I’m feeling and doing better.  Funny how that works huh?  But sometimes there are days still when the little devil sits on your shoulder and says, “Go ahead, eat that chocolate.  It doesn’t matter.”  I think we all fight the devils here/there in our life.  Let’s all of us get the things off of our chest that need to be out there.

.  I will not let people get me down.  I will not cringe over the little things of extra work on my desk, more bills that need to be paid, kids schedules or deadlines.  I will not play your high school games.  I will not let the devil overtake my life.  I will not curse in traffic.  Today I will put my head up high.  I will be me – take it or leave it.

Now my friends, how was your week?  Do tell and list some of the things that will *not* get you down this week ❤

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I’m not sure about you but my accountant really bites.  He’s got a bad attitude and is always thinking numbers.  I don’t get it.  Why can’t accountants have pleasant personalities – maybe joke around a bit.  I think that would really show a better enthusiasm for their job.  I mean we are talking about my money, it may not be a lot but it is mine.  I thought I would show you a pic of my guy.  I have to admit though, he’s good.  He chomps down and sets to work on that keyboard.  He looks for everything he can find to deduct.  If you ever need a good accountant, let me know okay.  Signed Frogger

Dear Frogger – Well my, my, my.  Your ‘guy’ does look very – how can I say it – professional in what he does. I see what you mean by his serious look.  He does have a stern don’t mess with me kind of disposition.  Maybe the numbers bring it out in him?  Maybe bring him a gift next time – some swamp water or some Lubriderm lotion.  I’ve heard that lotion does wonders for tough skin.


Dear Bacon –  My favorite time of the day is in this picture.  It’s early morning and it’s breakfast time!  They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Trust me.  It is.  And you know what.  Milk does a body good.  My little legs will grow strong and my ‘moo’ will be coming out soon.  Cause you know what they say?  You got to moo-moo it.  HA!  I made a funny.  I told you breakfast is important – it starts my day like awesome.  Signed Tina

Dear Tina – Shaking my head.  You are right.  Breakfast is very important not to miss in starting your day.  That’s why every day, I start off with my piggy chow and Cheerios.  I gotta keep my figure in check and my cholesterol down.  This piggy has places to travel!

 

 


Dear Bacon  – Don’t you hate it when uninvited solicitors show up at your door?  Take for instance, I was settled down reading my magazines and newspaper.  You know the typical Sunday leisure day.  Then Bob showed up selling God only knows what.  I told him I wasn’t interested in and he kept on roaring.  How rude!  I finally just had to turn and walk away.  Maybe he got the hint then.  Geez, some anipals huh?  Signed Tigger

Dear Tigger – Please don’t send Bob my way.  It’s bad enough when solicitors come into our hood.  They don’t even come to our crib anymore.  Too many times they have showed up and after seeing moi answer the door, they got scared and turned away.  I don’t get it.  I was just in the doorway with daddy answering the door.  Who cares that he was wearing his Sponge Bob underwear.  Shakes head.


 

Dear Bacon – Be glad that you don’t have a desk job little piggy.  In this picture, it was a Friday at 4:45 pm – almost time for the weekend to start.  The head guy showed up in my doorway and wanted a report that was going to take at least an hour to finish and he needed it that night.  WTD?  Really?  You waited all day to tell me this at 4:45 pm?  Shakes dog head – some people have no tact.  Signed Bruiser

Dear Bruiser – OMP!  I so understand.  Mom has been done this way a time or two.  I’ll tell you what I tell her when she calls and tells us she is going to be late.  It sucks and it’s unfair!  I hope you got some overtime for staying over my friend.


Remember my friends.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without *you*.  Please continue to email me your letters and pictures ❤

Texts from Bacon

How do you make the day go by faster?  Of course by texting mommy at the worky place – snorts.  My texts are in blue and moms are in gray.  Hey what can I say?  There’s never a dull moment here at the Hotel Thompson.  Enjoy my friends!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Rolls my eyes.  Do you ever have that one sibling that just will not leave you alone.  They are always beside you, around you or heaven forbid like in this picture on top of you.  You just want to shake them off but the humans are always watching.  What can I do to make this pest go away?  Signed Big Brother

Dear Big Brother – Oh my pigs – that is one hilarious picture my friend.  I see your human in the background.  I know you are so doing your best not to go ballistic on your little friend.  Let me tell you something – I *know* your pain.  Houdini here is that pest.  He jumps on me, around me, under me, on top of me – like I’m his personal trampoline or something.  And the humans are always watching wanting to know what I will do.  I’ll tell you what I do.  I go to my bedroom and slam the door so he can’t come in with me – snorts.  Just take it one day at a time my friend.  In fact, I say although sometimes they get on your nerves, enjoy these little moments.  The little pests grow up so fast before your eyes.


Dear Bacon – OMD – OMD – OMD.  Look at that bitch on the dog show!  We all had to stop and run over to the television to watch.  I say she needs to win for our breed.  She’s beautiful!  She is representing us so well – go girl – work it!  Signed Dog Show

Dear Dog Show – Snorts – look at ya’ll so intent on watching her walk.  Dudes, I would think you were a bunch of construction workers whistling at girls going by the way you are looking at that classy lady.  I just love it!  I hope she won on your dog show for your breed.  There’s always too much bad news going on about your breed – it’s about time something nice is being done!


Dear Bacon – Barks!  Do you remember that movie called The Shining?  You know the favorite saying in it, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”?  HA!  Well, the humans were watching the movie last night and totally freaking out about that part where Jack takes an axe and somewhat breaks down the bathroom door and says, “Here’s Johnny”?  So I’m taking care of a little surprise for the humans when they come sit on the couch.  What do you think?  Signed Johnny in Training

Dear Johnny in Training – OMP!  Your humans will pee all over themselves when they see you there in between the cushions.  You look just like Jack in that seen – the facial expression is down pact.  Oh my piggy heavens – to be in the room when your humans sit down – that will be priceless for sure.  Do me a favor and let me know how they react okay.  Can’t way to hear.


Dear Bacon – There I was in the neighborhood.  I was dressed in my jacket because it was a little cool outside.  I decided to go visit my pal next door to see if he wanted to go for a walk in the hood.  I knocked on the door like this and can you believe his human did nothing but stand there and laugh at me.  What was up with that?  I mean heck I was just being sociable.  After a while, I guess they got the meaning and let Skippy out to walk with me.  Weird huh?  Signed PB

Dear PB – Rolls my eyes.  Humans are so weird at stuff like that.  I don’t understand why she would laugh.  I mean don’t anipals go over for play dates like this all of the time?  The guy here Houdini never leaves the house without being dressed.  Why can’t humans understand that?  Anipals have feelings too huh?  Hope ya’ll had fun kicking grass.


REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue emailing me your letters and pictures ❤

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – I’m not sure what happened.  First the human was standing in front of the refrigerator door.  The next thing I knew, the human fell down like that Humpty Dumpty dude.  I have to admit the human made a pretzel look pretty everyday the way they curled up and bounced.  Do your humans ever do anything like this?  Signed I’ll Give That a 10 out of 10

Dear I’ll Give That a 10 out of 10 – First, I wouldn’t be any kind of friend without asking is your human okay?  Did they get back up after their yoga move?  I’m saying yoga move because humans put themselves in all kinds of weird positions when they do that stuff.  In fact, I have to admit that I’m pretty impressed with your move on top of the refrigerator.  What do you call that?  Upward kitty stance?  Just be careful.  I’ve heard that first step off of the refrigerator can be a booger bear – the floor doesn’t give.


Dear Bacon – This sucks.  Trust me – leave the work stuff to the humans.  Getting up at an ungodly hour is bad enough.  But then the humans have to dress up in these clothes – eeww.  How do they not pee on themselves wearing this stuff?  Signed Help Me!

Dear Help Me!  Oh I know my friend.  I don’t envy mommy going to the work place ever.  First you have to dress up then you have to drive there.  Then apparently you put up with a lot of crap and there are no treats.  What the heck do they work for?  Shaking my head.  Stay at home for as long as you can.


Dear Bacon – The humans are so fickle.  I hear them talking about this diet stuff all of the time and how they don’t eat and how the scales are nothing but lies and they don’t understand why they are not losing weight.  Breathe.  I know.  I know everything.  You see, I sit here on my perch in the dark at night.  I know why they are not losing any weight.  They are coming into the kitchen at night and eating out of the fridge and cabinets.  Doh – that’s why they are not losing weight.  Do your humans do this?  Signed The Watcher

Dear The Watcher – In a word – YES.  My humans do this too.  Then they yell at the scales at the end of the week.  Hilarious is what I call it.  My mom calls the scales a perpetual liar every week.  Of course, sometimes she doesn’t know that I have my hoof on the back of it – snorts.


Dear Bacon – You give a child an inch and they take a mile.  I told little Rusty he could play in front of the tree.  What does the little tyke do?  He climbs the tree.  Why do I care?  Because then he started squealing like someone was taking away his honey.  He was stuck and couldn’t get down.  What are we going to do with the children these days?  Signed Mommy Bear

Dear Mommy Bear – You know I feel you but you have to admit that the little guy is cute stuck on the side of the tree there.  Good thing he has those nice long nails to hang into the bark.  Give him a break this time okay.  He’s learning life and he’s still a kid.  Let him be a kid for as long as he can.  Kudos to you being a great mom!
