Oh boy – oh joy – it’s International Bacon Day!
It’s a big day around here…..well, everywhere that bacon is loved and appreciated I suppose because it’s actually an International Bacon Day so that covers everybody everywhere! When I found out about this special day I had to do some research and what better spot than the blog 365 Days of Bacon which my good friends Miss Caren and Cody from Cat Chat told me about! WHO KNEW????!!!!! Was I ever excited about the news!
As you know we always have bacon with our breakfast around here on weekends and today Mom is making EXTRA just so we can celebrate in style. The way I go on about the stuff you’d think I eat packages of the stuff right? Well the truth of the matter is that I only eat a tiny piece. That’s all I want really. I’m not a (pardon the expression) PIG when it comes to having bacon.
My Mom got into the spirit of the occasion though and in honor of the day, my Mom brought out SOME (and I mean some) of her pawsome and extensive collection of piggies – she’s collected them for YEARS. People have gifted them to her, she’s bought them on her world travels, and we find them in shops and stores all over the place. Mom has a special little display cabinet in her studio with them and just for me (because I said “Pretty Please With Bacon On Top”) she got some down and took a few photos of them so I could share!
Pretty cool huh? She has others – including a pig her Mom had that she bought when they all lived in Taiwan many years ago. It was carved out of some kind of dark wood and is one of my Mom’s favorites. I think they’re quite cute and when Mom was taking these photos I tried to eat a few of them and/or steal them and run off with them. They are NEVER out of their cabinet so this was a treat to
sniff see them up close!
Also, I want to say that if you don’t know a little piggy who has a blog whose name is “Bacon” you should today of all days go over and introduce yourself to him HERE – and if you DO know him, make sure and stop by because he does – after all – have an INTERNATIONAL day named after him since it’s International Bacon Day!!!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day – I sure am enjoying it so far……………………”Hey Mom……………bring on the bacon” !!!!!
YOUR PAL SAM !!!
