Happy Friday!! We made it through the first week of the year to the first Friday. Hopefully, most of the holidays are behind us now and we can start the year off with fun and chuckles. I don’t know about ya’ll, but I am still trying to get rest from Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. It’s time for this little oinker to take some major power naps this weekend and snuggle time with mom.
I saw this funny when I was staying up late New Years Eve. That was a *LONG* night. Usually I’m in bed by 10PM but mom/dad let me stay up to watch the fireworks. We had a blast.
I couldn’t pass up this funny – hope you enjoy it. I’m thinking of suggesting it to Hemi and Mouse Girl, the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson. I’m off to put on my Sumo wrestling outfit now. Happy fighting – snorts.

Mom and dad have been watching this show called Gator Boys on the Animal Planet channel on television. I have to admit I was kind of timid in watching this show at first. Those are some big gators! They look so scary. But, the show has grown on me. Now, I’ve gotten to know the guys on the show a little bit better and I’m not so
scared hesistant to watch at all.
The show usually takes place at the Everglades Holiday Park in Florida with Paul Bedard and Jimmy Riffle. Florida is their first love and they perform alligator wrestling shows, airboat excursions and catch nuisance gators in the area. If you are ever in the area, I’m sure their show would be awesome to see first hand! (21940 Griffin Road, Ft Laurderdale, Florida.) I think mom and dad actually want to go see them now in person. I hear a field trip coming up!
This season that have relocated to Mississippi to actually work at the Gulf Coast Gator Ranch to help find and save the alligators that were misplaced by Hurricane Katrina. That’s right, they’re actually going to get paid to do what they love so much – isn’t that awesome! Hopefully it’s just a temporary move while work is being done in Florida.
These two guys are amazing!
They catch gators with their bare hands. Paul Bedard will actually go into the water to swim around looking for the alligators while Jimmy Riffle pulls the gators out of the water. They tag team in getting the gator on land The two of them then ‘tire out the alligator’ by making it flip around before putting it in the back of their truck.
If that’s not enough excitement for you – read this! Paul Bedard will kiss the gator’s snout and Jimmy Riffle opens the gators mouth and puts his chin on his snout. WHAT?! I know – I was as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs the first time I saw this. But now, I’m just in awe.
Heck, if you two ever want to wrestle cute ole me, I’m game. You don’t have to tape my snout up or anything. I won’t bite. And heck, Jimmy you don’t have pull my tail to get me out of the water. I’ll let Paul even kiss my snout.
Love you guys!!

Meet the purr things, my brother and sister Hemingway “Hemi” and Mouse Girl “Mouse”. They look all cute and innocent, don’t they? This is a great picture that mom took of them the other night. Don’t you love how their shadows reflect off of them on the floor?
They look about the same size in this picture. Pictures can be deceiving, always remember that. Mouse is like double the size of Hemi the Hurricane. oops – did I say that? LOL
So, you’re looking at this picture and you’re thinking they look so cute, so furry, so loving, so innocent. Remember what I said about pictures being deceiving? This happed like three minutes later after mom took the picture. Thank goodness she still had her camera out. Not so cute and innocent anymore, huh?
It was on like Donkey Kong. Notice the fighting pose Mouse took. Notice the “I know you didn’t” pose Hemi took. Mouse often takes this stance, heck both of them do for that matter.
So you wonder where I get my ‘human’ qualities from? The same place Mouse and Hemi get theirs – of course from Mom. All of us know that we’re humans. What else could we be? Mom has explained to us that everyone in the world is different. You don’t have to look completely alike to be family. As long as there is love, there is family. And no, love doesn’t have to be 100% of the time. No one functions that way. But the bottom line will always be – we’re family! And, you don’t mess with family without messing with the entire clan.

Thank you so much for the questions and pictures that you are sending in to the Dear Bacon column. I’m getting enough for a weekly column now – YAY!! Remember, send your questions and/or pictures to me at BaconThompson@gmail.com
I think I’ve found a new career for myself. I absolutely love wrestling bro. I’ve got a move that I like to refer to as the Butt Kisser. I get my opponent down and sit on his face. Sometimes I get excited and well a little air is exchanged if you know what I mean. What do you think – I got a career or what? Signed Butt Kisser
Dear Butt Kisser,
You definitely got some moves pooch. I’m not even going to ask how many so-called friends you tried this move on in your neighborhood. What do you see some fellow canines walking down the street, chase after them, sit on their faces and expel gas? What is your street name there again? Running Gas Bomb? Bully the Butt? Come on – back off the moves. Unless you’re in the arena actually wrestling, I think I’m safe to say that your fellow canines don’t appreciate what you’re doing.
Oh man, I’m like so excited man. I love coke man. The more the merrier man. I don’t care where it comes from – I must have it little man. What am I to do? – Signed High on Coke Man
Dear High on Coke Man,
Back up from the straw little squirrel. Go ahead, no walk away. You are so hyper that given a hamster wheel you could make enough energy to put GE out of business. You don’t need the stimulants. You need a 12 step program. One day at a time. Admission is the first step. You can do it!
I love to cook! My passion is cooking! I don’t care about chasing the post man or milk man – I’d rather cook for them. My parents don’t know about this. Secretly at night, I go into the kitchen and act like Julia Child. It’s so much fun! Of course, I clean everything up before the master gets up. Should I come out of the closet? – Signed Chef on the Download
Dear Chef on the Download,
Dude, if you can cook – come out of the closet. Don’t walk – RUN! I’m sure your parents would enjoy being waiting on by their dog for a change. Just remember basics like washing your paws okay. Practice on and maybe you can get on Hell’s Kitchen next year!
I hate my job. You know those pesky people who call you from credit card companies trying to collect money? That’s me. (Hey, it happens! You know there’s a talking bear movie fixing to come out called Ted.) We do collections. Well, I hate calling people and trying to collect money. I may look all cute and everything but my voice is really deep like Samuel Jackson so they hired me for the job. But, I’m not like that. I want a new job. What should I do? – Signed Collector with a Big Voice
Dear Collector with a Big Voice,
Little dude, there is a special place for your work kind. Not talking specifically about you in general but your trade. Why don’t you find something that you like. I’m sure there are a lot of different phone positions for a breed of your disposition. Try some different telemarketing jobs until you find something you like.
