Baconiam Snapshots


Greetings Fellow Baconians!

I thought today I’d share some photos from the official Baconian Photo Album………………..the countryside of course is covered in bacon – trees, rocks, houses, it’s all bacon………but I do travel through from time to time to stop and visit my loyal subjects.    Here are just a few of the photos the official Baconian Photographer has snapped!

It seems that everyone is happy in Baconia.   That makes ME happy.    A big part of that happiness is obviously EATING bacon so shall we?   Oh LET’S!!!!!!

This should satisfy our bacon habit for today don’t you think??????

You have outdone yourself Royal Chef……..take the rest of the day off!


Happy Bacon Day My Friends!

See you next Saturday for more Baconian fun!

King Teddy


Bacon Saturday


Greetings Fellow Baconians…..Let the eating begin!

Last week we had an EPIC bacon harvest in our greenhouse which many of you not only attended but also helped to harvest!  Because of that we have a bumper crop of delicious bacon to be eaten and enjoyed.   Our traditional day to do that here in Baconia is TODAY.

There’s no mistakin’ the aroma of bacon!    The chef here at the Baconian Castle is cookin’ it up right now!As you can see, we have plenty of seating in the Baconian Banquet Hall……………have a seat after you fill up your plate with bacon goodness!!!

Bacon delights as far as the eye can see………………..please partake your fill of any and all items – there will be seconds, thirds and fourths coming out of the kitchen ALL DAY LONG………..

Well Done Chef!!

Don’t forget dessert………………oh no you must NEVER forget dessert!!!!!


Enjoy your BACON-O-RAMA here at the Baconian Castle as long as you wish!

I shall be extending the same invitation for you NEXT week my friends!  Until then…….


King Sammy of Baconia

NOTE:    Our Halloween theme is just a TEMPORARY one (of course!) – after October we’ll go back to our USUAL look!!!!

Pre-Tease Monday


It’s Monday!   Time to PREPARE to Tease!

Come on inside the schoolroom boys and girls – it’s time to settle down!

Yep – put those caps on or you may wind up like this guy in the corner!!!

This week we are using one of my Mom and Dad’s photos…………….and it’s my Dad you see in the photo.    I suppose you can GUESS who is taking the picture?    Anyway, you will see it tomorrow and figure it out in no time I’m sure.   I want to tell you the TEASER rules first though!

  1. We ask everyone NOT to use any “help” with figuring out WHERE the photo was taken – i.e., GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH or something along those lines.   If you don’t use any “help” then everyone is on the same playing field – just study the photo and make your best guess using your eyeballs, not some computer program!!
  2. You must guess the TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as the STATE (if USA) or COUNTRY (if not USA) where the photo was taken………Yep – we want the whole thing!!

So now you know the rules – but to really FIRE YOU up and prepare you for tomorrow, SuzieQ would like to grab your ears and fill them with poetry to inspire you for tomorrow’s Teaser………are you ready for her???   Some say that SuzieQ can best be described as “an acquired taste”……….hahaha

Ricky Ticky Tizzy
Cheering makes me dizzy
But I’ll do my best to inspire
While in my uniform I perspire
This cheer will be a quickie
It’s too darn hot and sticky
Leaping around in the heat
Gives me blisters on my feet
Show up in class in the morning
Miss Dingleberry is cookin’

Alright Suzie – I’m sure everyone will be here without fail.   Just remember that class will be at a SURPRISE time tomorrow so have one ear tuned to the computer/phone, etc. for the arrival of the TEASER!    First one to COMMENT tomorrow gets this to display on their blog/page, etc. – LUCKY DUCKY!

If there’s more than one FIRST COMMENTER in the first 60 seconds we are live, everyone who comments in that minute gets a badge!  WOOT!     Then we have other badges you might win but I’ll tell you in class tomorrow about THOSE!

Now before you are excused go to out to the playground for recess, the school principal asked me to make a couple of announcements!

Announcements are scary…..

This Friday, September 29th we are guest hosting Bacon’s SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD post………………you will still link to his blog so his Mom can collect the recipes BUT we are hosting so we are reminding today!  Got it?    What are we doing this month for SHOPPING?    Well it happens to be one of my (and my Mom’s) favorite things in the world!!!

DESSERT  !!!!!

Yep – what’s another fabulous dessert creation you make that you just know the rest of us mere mortals would love to know how you make it – AND we also want to know what you PAID for all the ingredients in the recipe!   That’s the point of SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD – not just to get some good recipes but to find out what YOU are paying for the stuff that we might be paying more or less for.    WE WANNA KNOW…….WHY?   Because we are NOSY!      You will link your post to PIGLOVE.   Are we clear?   Yep?  Good!

SECOND Announcement is that this coming Saturday, September 30th Teddy and I are co-hosting the BACON HARVEST – it’s ready for picking and YOU can join in the fun if you want to – dress up in your finest “harvest wear” and send us your photo.    We’ll include you in the fun.    I’m going to repost the photos of the greenhouse, some clothes if you need them and some interior shots of the bacon crop and you can photoshop yourselves silly and send us the pix for the BLOG POST here on Saturday!   COOL?  Yeah I think so too!!!!

Bacon Greenhouse Update


Happy Bacon Saturday!  

I thought I’d better give you the scoop on what’s going on in the Bacon Greenhouse over this past summer………….we had a great crop of bacon seedlings growing and we are a week away from HARVEST time.    Our usual Greenhouse Crew has been working hard maintaining, fertilizing, raking, hoeing, weeding and in general keeping the place looking fabulous as always.    Here are some photos I took so I can share them with you!!

Things have been popping right along all summer so the crop is looking good – here are some photos from shortly after the planting to a photo I snapped yesterday!

So as you see, it’s time to harvest since the bacon buds are popping open……………………so we will be having that promised BACON HARVEST PARTY – WHEN?


If you would like to pawticipate in the harvest and the “after party”, all you have to do is send us a photo of you in your HARVEST outfit – something suitable for working in the greenhouse – and we’ll put you to work!     You can pick out your own stuff to wear, but here are some possibilities if you need some help!


We will enjoy some harvest fun after we finish working…………….you may remember if you were at last harvest that we WORKED HARD but we also reaped the rewards of our hard work with a wonderful feast and fun.

Angel Sammy will be here to drive the official tractor…..!!

Here in Baconia we take harvesting our precious bacon seriously!   Join us for some fun next Saturday, September 30th and make sure and send your photos to us by Thursday, September 28th…………

We sure will next Saturday!!!!

Your King…….

p.s.  If you need help with your photo – send us a full body picture of YOU and we’ll dress you!

But if you CAN photo edit, please “do it yourself” !!  Please send photos in .jpg format if you can!


P.P.S.    My sweet friend Phoebe from 15andMeowing could use some purrs and encouragement – she has Stage 4 kidney disease and her Mom and Dad are trying everything they can to help her get her appetite back……….if you have a minute, please click HERE and visit – we know they would appreciate a HUG!!

Phoebe as Rapunzel!

Back To Bacon


Let There Be Bacon……Double Portions!

I guess my Kingly Decree last week didn’t stop Irma after all but I promised you double ration of bacon this week to make up for NO bacon last Saturday so…………………

Let the baconizing begin!

Uhhh…..’Scuze me, your Kingship, but my kitchen staff

didn’t show up this morning so it’s just ME

cooking for your Kingliness and

your Guests this morning so

I ask your Royal indulgence this morning??????

I’m sure my guests will understand………………oh and when that staff DOES show up – tomorrow or whenever – FIRE THEM!


Yes indeed – we can’t have NO SHOWS working in the kitchen.   What about when I have a Kingly reception or party – we can’t have unreliable staff!!!!  NOOOOOOO sireee!

UHOH……I didn’t know the household staff was overhearing our conversation Chef – but all our Castle Departments should be staffed with DEDICATED personnel!   Oh, Miss Pennyweather, your staff was listening to my conversation with the Chef!!!!

Rest assured your Kingship, Housekeeping is under control!


Excellent Miss Pennyweather.    Your crew keeps the Castle in very good order – thank you for your dedication to castle cleanliness and your  loyalty!

Breakfast is Served!

Well done Chef!  Did your kitchen staff show up after all?

No Your Kingliness – the Housekeeping staff came to the rescue and helped me out!  



It’s been a good day in Baconia……

Using My Kingly Powers


Hello Baconians….

Today we would normally be giggling together over some silly bacon recipes or cartoons or jokes but somehow with this horrible hurricane slamming into Florida I’m not really feeling the love for bacon – just for all my friends and family there…………so I thought since I’m a KING and KINGS have powers, I’m putting ALL my Kingly power into issuing this Decree:

And I am hoping and praying that all of you will be SAFE…………….next week we’ll celebrate with a bacon feast as usual but this week please put all of your effort and hope into safety for those in the path of the storm AND those who are bravely working to put their towns and homes back together from Hurricane Harvey too……………..

Your King………..Teddy

Things Are Better With Bacon….


Have You Ever Noticed That?   IT’s TRUE!

Things do go better with a little bacon……and that’s why we do this every Saturday.  Makes you smile, makes me smile, makes things a little brighter and – fills the tummy too!!!   I should be hired by the bacon industry in fact – look what we’ve done for them all these years!

Sure does……………in fact lots of things are super good about bacon………!

I’m sure that’s why doctors prescribe it!

It makes EVERYONE happy right?????

And other than the Tooth Fairy, only BACON has its’ own little magic fairy!

See?   It’s just good stuff……period……..where would we be without all the silly jokes and cartoons about bacon?   A good belly laugh is good for the soul!

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE! Yours too apparently!

This is EVER so true!!!!!

So therefore as your King of Baconia, I am here to say –

Let The Bacon Feast Begin!  

(go ahead – go tell your humans to whip up some bacon ASAP – tell ’em THE KING sent ya!

Love, King Teddy with a short but SWEEEET post today –

gives you more time to eat bacon!
