Saturday With Bacon AND Bashful!



HUH.  WHO?   Well, if you follow Bacon the piggy’s blog HERE, then you know that his rock-n-roller, Bashful is a world-traveler.  That’s right – this rock knows how to get around and has been just about everywhere in creation except to MY house.   Well not anymore gang – he arrived in my mailbox yesterday and he’s here to stay through Thanksgiving!!!!!!

I will have tons of photos to share with you while he’s here at my house of course but for now – I snuck in early Friday morning to make sure he was sleeping OK in the Guest Room and here’s what I saw:


The little guy is all cuddled up in his afghan with the stuffed piggy I gave him (so he wouldn’t miss Bacon too much) and my pink cat pillow (so he’d remember he’s visiting a CAT) – he was snoring softly and when the flash went off on the camera, he pulled the afghan over his head and went back to sleep!

I’m thinking of great stuff to do with him while he’s here – but of course we’ll start off with breakfast this morning whenever he gets up and that’s when I’ll start snapping photos to share with you.   I already know Mom is going to take him up to the mountains with her and Dad to the cottage my Dad’s brother and his wife have.   That’s where TURKEY DAY will be happening… doubt there will be a lot of fun although I myself will be HOME……waiting patiently for Bashful and my parents to get home and bring me some TURKEY TURKEY TURKEY!!!!!

Friday after Bashful got up (finally) I showed him around the house a bit.  It was kind of cold out and I thought he’d better have a sweater to wear so Mom is working on that……in the meantime there’s plenty of stuff to do inside the house.    When I was showing him around the library he spotted the little log cabin my Dad made out of sticks and thought it would be JUST HIS SIZE……sadly we discovered that the door just isn’t big enough for him.   But he did look cute standing in front of the place anyway!


Then I introduced him to the two rocks we won from Savannah a while ago – she kindly had a giveaway of several hand-painted rocks and we were lucky to get a couple!   You know Bashful flirted with these two who are “girl-rocks” of course…..he’s such a SCAMP!


Who knows what we’ll get into today.  First up is breakfast of course – with bacon and Bashful……….wow………..I hope he likes bacon – well I know he likes his brother BACON but actual bacon?  Let’s hope so because you know I’m gonna have some since it’s Caturday!


Have a super day!

Hugs, Sammy (and Bashful)

    • We will be keeping a very close eye on the little rock dude believe me. He’s exploring the house now but today should be a nice day and he might be able to help my Mom and Dad with yardwork……HAHAHA

      Love, Sam


  1. Oh My, for the love of Bashful. He is going to have so much fun at your house Sammy! Please, please, please let Bashful drive/ride on the lawn tractor and help with leaves! He could go on a plane ride. Going to the mountain cottage… he is so lucky. He will have the best Turkey Day… maybe there is pumpkin cheesecake in his future??? Enjoy your Saturday Kimmell family and Bashful!


    • HAHAHAHA…..well, Mom is usually a bit busy on the tractor but we’ll see if we can include in him the activity out there – AND Dad is going flying before THanksgiving too so that’s an EASY one! He is going with Mom and Dad to the mountains for sure – I do think that this will be a MOST SPECIAL Turkey Day for ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL of us!!!!!

      Love, Sammy

  2. Squeals!! I see my guy is getting along beautifully there cousin. Now you tell him to behave and not to roll off. He tends to get into trouble. But you know my friend- he might just give you know who a run for his money after turkey day. Snorts and oinks. XOXO – Bacon


    • I’m thinking Bashful is going to be very helpful keeping YOU KNOW WHO under control – at least while Bashful is here…..when he leaves to come back home for Christmas, it’s every cat for himself!

      Hugs, Sam


      • I know! Me and the other anipals here are trying to come up with a safety plan this year. Time is ticking and we gotta get a move on for protection from the freaky you know who. XOXO – Bacon


        • Mom and Dad fully expect to get home from W. Virginia to find Sammy and The Evil Elf here waiting for them………….Bashful of course is going with Mom and Dad and won’t have to be here for the big “break out” !

          Hugs, Sam

  4. Wow, Bashful, you sure do get around my friend. I love the log house and if the door was bigger…you’d make it through. There you go….a project for you and Sammy. Overhaul the door and cut a bigger door.

    Bashful I hope you get Bacon too.
