Bashful and Bacon


Bashful (because he’s visiting me) 

Bacon (because it’s Saturday!)

Yes – as I always say (because Sammy said I should!) – it’s Saturday – Bacon Day – and it’s OH SO GOOD TO BE KING!!!!

But it’s also oh so good to have Bacon the piggy’s rock-star brother Bashful visiting me too.    I have a few pictures to share with you today of his adventures so far here with me BUT first, let’s do what we bacon-lovers MUST do on a Saturday!    EAT BACON!   YAY!!!!

Remember that Sammy is always watching……so we mustn’t miss a Saturday!

Mom has been known to say this on a Saturday…..would make things easier if we could just download the stuff!!

Really – who would serve eggs WITHOUT bacon?   Isn’t that either a sin or against the law or SOMETHING?

If I had that little face staring at me in the kitchen one morning I’d be grabbing my car keys and making a bee-line for the grocery store!!!!!!

This is not a “funny” poster – it’s TRUE AROUND MY HOUSE!!!

Well here at my house we are WELL above AVERAGE!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING????????????????????????????????

I do hope that you will be blessed with some bacon for breakfast (or lunch or dinner or all three) today!    We have had some for breakfast here at MY house!

Who’s Visiting????

Yep – Bashful is here for his second visit but it’s his FIRST visit with ME!   Angel Sammy was his host first time around!

Bashful had Thanksgiving dinner in W. Virginia at Sammy’s Auntie Joan’s house when he visited last time.

This is him sitting on Auntie Joan’s dining room table after alllllllllll that turkey was eaten and alllllllll the side dishes too!  No he didn’t eat them all – there was a lot of human help.

ANYWAY, we think he had fun……….this time around, we will have new adventures and I’ll be his host.

The first thing he wanted to do was pay his respects to Angel Sammy…..In the back of the box is a little book my Mom wrote after Sammy sent to the Bridge.

After that, we took Bashful to the grocery so he could pick out some favorite things to have while he’s here!   He had his own Bashful-sized shopping bag too and know what?   He only wanted ONE SPECIAL THING for himself – all the rest of the food Mom bought he said was great.   Here he is with his ONE SPECIAL THING:

IMAGINE THAT!    His own bottle of Guinness!    Heavy stuff for a rock but then Bashful can handle anything!

Next up he asked if he could look for some bedtime reading for nights after we’ve turned out the lights in the Casa De Kimmell for snooze time.   So we perused our library here at home and he found some “Bashful-sized” books to read:

He will have plenty of reading material that’s for sure!

Who knows WHAT we’ll do next…….but we’ll have fun that’s for sure!

Time for both of us to have a post bacon breakfast nap!

See you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies at The Cat On My Head!

Love, Teddy and Bashful

Bacon Day


I, King Teddy, Proclaim It To Be


Shall we begin the celebration of Saturday?????


Surely we aren’t supposed to BELIEVE this are we????


CAN HAZ, SHOULD HAZ and WILL HAZ!  Right gang???

My big brother in his bacon hat……..I sure miss him!

“Hi Phenny!  Would you just deliver all of those hams and bacons to my house please???”

Whoever says roses smell THE BEST was right – assuming they meant BACON roses!!!!

Some of you have asked what the Greenhouse staff is doing since we had the BIG HARVEST PARTY……Well, Miss Marsha, the Greenhouse Supervisor took her “bacon bonus” we gave her for doing such a fabulous job tending the crop this first year that she’s bought a new car and a new house and is looking forward to next year’s harvest – AFTER she comes back from her vacation in Tahiti!

Not bad!

My kinda vacation spot!!!

Miss Marsha – job well done!

Now if you’ll excuse me….

I think I’ll stretch out (yawn….)

and take a bit of a snoozer!  

Happy Saturday!

Love, Teddy the Baconator!


Bacon Saturday!


Let’s EAT!

Welcome Friends!   Another delightful Saturday is beginning and as always we will start ours with BACON!!!!!

This might be enough to START with anyway………….

Thank you oh Bacon Fairy for visiting us today!!!!!!

Mine tingle EVERY Saturday and sometimes other days of the week – I’m a baconator like my big brother Angel Sammy!

Sometimes we have to work REALLY hard to sneak a bite and other times it’s just in the food dish!

Then there are those HAPPY ACCIDENTS when bacon accidentally lands on the floor – give those peeps the innocent eyes thing and it will be YOURS!

Wait…..I can’t see why we can’t wrap the neighbor’s cat in bacon.  If we did, maybe I’d LIKE him.

This stuff is for real – Mom gets it at our grocery – and trust me – it’s SPAMALICIOUS!!

I trust you will have a satisfactory Saturday AND that you will be able to hypnotize your human into serving YOU bacon today.

Now, if you’ll ‘scuze me, I’m gonna take a snoozie in my Kingly Quarters!


Happy Bacon Day!

Teddy, King of Baconia

Hail New King of Baconia


Like my big brother often said:

It’s GOOD to be King!

Don’t worry though – our King Emeritus is right here with me watching every key I hit on the keyboard with my newly trimmed claws to make sure I do Bacon Caturday justice!   As if I’d DARE do anything else!

I know that Angel Sammy had quite a repertoire of funny photos he shared with you on Saturdays……….”all about bacon”………and I will continue that tradition believe me!   First I want to take just a second to say that we’ve sent two of the three Bacon Harvest Giveaway packages off this week to the USA winners, Timmy Tomcat and family and Miss Layla and her kitties at Cat Wisdom 101.    We will wait a bit to send Da Phenny’s package – he’s WAY across the pond you know and it will take a while to get there but we don’t want to arriving before he gets back from an ADVENTURE with his Mom and Dad in Paris.




When I asked Mom what that favorite of hers MEANS, she said that I was too young to understand.   Hmm…….


Yeah well I will endeavor to find more bacon entertainment for you in the coming weeks – after all this is my first official post as Bacon King…………..Angel Sammy’s “collection” was quite complete……….finding new stuff is tough!


Minions are SO smart!!!

Well I think it might be time for me to curl up on my throne and watch all of you have your breakfast with bacon now…………………Mom’s makin’ mine this very minute – how about you?????

Hugs, Teddy the Junior Baconator!

You have done well little brother……I can rest now knowing Baconia is safe and sound!

Hugs, Angel Sammy, King Emeritus

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!


Double Blog Post Day!

Thursday is the day we are THANKFUL and the day we are POETIC so let’s get the show on the road………

First of all we can say that we are VERY thankful today – we’re thankful Spring is finally beginning to REALLY Spring after we had snow last week………we’re thankful that Teddy continues to keep all of us laughing our socks off every single day………we’re thankful that we got our brand new double wall ovens yesterday – that means Mom can make TWICE as much biscotti…….and we’re thankful that so many of YOU follow our blog and pawticipate in the fun like Saturday’s BACON HARVEST!    If you click on the badge below, it will take you to our host for Thankful Thursday – that’s Brian!!  You can go there and using the linky tool enter your OWN blog post to share why you are thankful.

Now for Part Two – our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem….

Today we are writing a poem about something starting with the letter “O” !

We are slowly but surely getting close to the end of the alphabet………..we might do something DIFFERENT after we make it to “Z” since we’ve done the alphabet twice now.    We can talk about that later though – right now let’s see what we can come up with for “O”!



By Angel Sammy Kimmell 3/23/17

Orange is a “lively” color, full of sunshine fun

Perfect for a kitten who lives his life on a full-out run!

The energy he has is amazing and so fun to see

Reminds me for sure of a very young ME.

He flies around the house, up and down all three floors of stairs

He has no regard for SAFETY so I keep him in my prayers!

For Teddy there are only two speeds – “rocket launch” and “sleep” –

His kitten brain is always working but his thoughts aren’t really deep!

He plays and eats and plays some more until he’s had his fill.

Mom has said she wishes the energy he has was available in a PILL !!

One thing’s for sure, our orange boy has brightened up the gloom

His “orange glow” lights up the night in every single room.

Adopting Teddy was OH SO RIGHT, my Mom and Dad did well…..

I set the stage for another orange boy…….now I can rest a spell…………

YAY – we squeezed out an “O” poem and I must say that I know someone ELSE who used “ORANGE” for their “O” today and it’s my new pal Cooper Murphy Blue at The Cat On My Head!   Cooper is a ginger boy like Teddy and the new boy in the household at Kitties Blue.    He also knows all about orange so we thought we’d both do ORANGE today.    If YOU want to pawticipate in Poetry Day, you can write your poem right here in my comments to share with everyone OR, leave us your blog link in my comments so we can come visit you and read your ODE TO O !!!

A reminder that my BACON BASH is Saturday………………..TODAY is the deadline to send in a photo of yourself in harvest gear if you want to but again – it’s not a requirement – just come to the party on Saturday and enjoy yourself and the “bounty” of the bacon greenhouse.    Those who want to send me a photo of yourselves in harvest clothes will be in the “HARVESTERS LINEUP” Mom and I will do so everyone can see you in your harvesting GARB!    We will be having a ton of fun and the party is ALL DAY so no matter when you stop by, you’ll be able to enjoy yourselves!

Questions about the Harvest Party?   Just ask……………we’ll get back to you!!    Meanwhile, HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYBODY!

Happy Thursday !!

Bacon Bash!


Make Note Of This Date!

Oh I’m so excited – no wait – I mean WE are both excited……….Teddy and I think next Saturday is the perfect day for the HARVEST – the crop is looking like perfection and I’m sure we’ll have a ton of fun harvesting.

It will be ALL DAY so no worries about being here at a particular time OK?    Just come when you can, pick as much bacon as you can manage, and you’ll get to take some home of course as well as sample some bacon delights at the bacon buffet table while you’re here!

I have some goodies for you in prep for next Saturday though……………………it’s impawtant to wear the proper clothes – you can wear what you want BUT if you want to be totally comfy, here are some ideas you can feel free to “copy” from the post and use!




We’ll all use a wheelbarrow as we work our way through the greenhouse harvesting…………..doesn’t have to be THIS ONE so if you have one of your own, bring it along!    You can have one of ours (this yellow doozy) if you need one though.

How This Will Work:    If you would like to have your photo in the “lineup” of participants for the Harvest, just send me BACK a picture of you in your harvest clothing – something from what I’ve provided above OR your own outfit – and with or without a wheelbarrow (!) BY THURSDAY, MARCH 23.    Email a picture of you in your harvest finery to junekimm(at)aol(dot)com and we’ll put your photo in the Saturday Harvest post along with everyone else who is able to photoshop.   If you aren’t able to, no worries – you don’t HAVE to be dressed up to come to the party OR to be eligible for our giveaway.  OK?    It’s just for FUN!!!!   


The greenhouse is bursting with ripe bacon so there will be plenty to do for everyone……….and of course plenty of breaks for a snack or drink – I don’t want you overworking!!!!

We’ll have a special guest there all day long too – Suzie from Teaser Tuesdays will be there in all her glory pumping up the energy level with her cheers…………….

I’ll be there to cheer you on
But don’t expect me there at dawn
Beauty sleep is what I need
My body doesn’t operate on FAST speed!
During the day I’ll CHEER CHEER CHEER
As long as Sammy brings me BEER BEER BEER!


Our greenhouse staff is excited too – they will be helping but after all, they’ve been working in the greenhouse all these months so if you catch one of them napping in a quiet corner, don’t wake them up – they deserve a break!





We will also have a short “passing on the crown” ceremony when I make my little brother Teddy the new KING OF BACONIA………….I will remain “HONORARY” KING EMERITUS however – and will always help out as my duties at the Bridge allow me to.

SO – Will see see you here next Saturday?   I hope so!  

We’re gonna have a blast AND a giveaway too!


Bacon With The Boys


The Bacon Boys!

This kinda says it all right?   Me and the Tedster getting ready to tackle breakfast on a Saturday morning!   It looks like Mom did it up right doesn’t it?   I wonder if there’s any bacon left at the grocery store – ANY of the grocery stores (we have four in town).

It’s only right of course that we be fully baconized – we have a “rep” to keep up – the boys of baconhood.

The bacon fairy has decreed that Teddy is my successor to the throne of Baconia…..so at a suitable time – purrrrrhaps at the BIG BACON HARVESTING PARTY we’ll have in a few weeks – we will include the official “passing of the crown” to Teddy.   It will be a suitably royal occasion.

I will of course always be the FIRST King of Baconia that there ever was, but being at the Bridge, if I wore my crown there my wings might not be able to handle that extra weight and I wouldn’t be able to fly.   SO, I will remain in an honorary position in the kingdom but Teddy will be the new ROYAL.

Speaking of the harvest party – it will be soon…..but prior to the party I will have some things to help all of you who plan on attending the party prepare.   Wheelbarrows to put your harvested bacon in, special outfits for all harvesters, etc.    I mean if we’re going to do this, we’re going to do it right – RIGHT?   So perhaps next Saturday I’ll post those things and then you will have some time to work on your photos and send them to ME so I can share them with our adoring fans.


The greenhouse supervisor says that the crop is looking mighty fine……………………………….so the Bacon Harvesting Party is the next step…………………and what a bacon-fest it will be!

Love WILL be in the air – LOVE OF BACON!!!!!

I’ll be pitching a big old party tent on the Greenhouse grounds for the event…………….be purrrpared to harvest and party OK?   I’ll give you more details soon.

The greenhouse staff will of course be invited………..

Happy Bacon Day!

Bacon Boys


Sammy and Teddy – the Bacon Boys


Hear Ye Hear Ye – starting next week the Prince of Baconia will be here on the Saturday bacon blog with THE KING!

That’s right – he will also occupy some space (only a little though) either ON my bacon cheeseburger King’s Bed and throne OR we’ll give him his own.

It’s time I move over and let my baby brother work for his keep!    (Ted in red)


You mean I can’t sleep in between bouts of insanely running around the house 87 billion miles an hour?   I have to WORK?   Aren’t I too young?

That’s right Teddy – time to help out the Angel guy………..


I’d rather be a gnome in the bacon greenhouse! 

Yeah well so would I but somebody has to “bring home the bacon” !!!   (oh gosh that was terrible wasn’t it?!?!)


I’m working on plans (and Teddy will be helping out) for the Bacon Harvest Party probably in April some time.   The bacon crop in the greenhouse will be AT ITS PEAK and we’ll have everyone come to join in the fun of harvesting AND snacking AND who knows what else!    I’ll keep you informed of course……..in the meantime, here are some Saturday bacon giggles!





Teddy and I wish you a happy Bacon Day!


 P.S.   Our friend Louisdog who is the Director of Arts and Entertainment for Blogville, put together an AMAZING “Art Gallery” of many of our friends and you MUST take a peek!   Just CLICK HERE and you will be able to see all the wonderful “portraits” in the gallery!!!   Thank you Louisdog for giving us all a chance to “strut” our stuff!  

Baby Baconator


Bacon Baby

bacongazetteYep – the Gazette’s front page story this week is of course that I have an “heir to the bacon throne” now – Baby Teddy.    He’s a real ball of fire (when he’s awake that is)……….and one day when I truly retire to my cloud, HE will take over the Kingdom of Baconia and running the operation at the bacon greenhouse.    But for now – you’ve got ME!    The King!


This week I was so busy trying to keep an eye on Teddy and trying to show him where he could hang out and not let Mom find him and where to stash stuff he steals off desks and countertops that I didn’t have TIME to find any new silly posters or memes or photos for you.   Sorry about that…………..but I could do some “re-runs” for you!

A nice bacon salad?????

A nice bacon salad?????


Really!  Who wants applesauce when you can have BACON?

Gosh I didn't know that!  I want a panda costume!

Gosh I didn’t know that! I want a panda costume!

This always worked for me - it might work on YOUR Mom!

This always worked for me – it might work on YOUR Mom!

Makes sense to me!

Makes sense to me!


I did manage to get a couple of shots of Baby Bro sound asleep in Dad’s office chair………….this kid sleeps EVERYWHERE………..this morning Dad found him asleep IN the shower on the floor in Mom and Dad’s master bathroom.   What’s with that?   I guess he thought it was a spa?????   Oh well.   He’s learning.



Closeup zzzzzzzz

Closeup zzzzzzzz

Don’t forget that tomorrow is the fabulous Blog Hop organized by  my buddy Raz and girl buddy Madi to welcome Teddy to the world of blogging.   Boy oh boy he has a lot to learn but I think he’s going to pick this up quickly.   I’m going to let him do his very first blog next week……..if he behaves that is!    Anyway, if you’re interested in hopping on his hop, it’s being hosted by Dory’s Backyard and if you go HERE, and scroll down on the Hoppity Page you’ll come to Teddy’s Hop.   Link up and we’ll see you Sunday!     Oh – YES – I meant to mention too that we will be hopping with The Cat On My Head’s Selfie Hop as well on Sunday – busy?  Oh yeah we sure are!!!!!

Until tomorrow……I think I’ll take a snooze like Little You Know Who!


Hugs, Angel Sammy
