Greetings Fellow Baconians! Let’s Do Some Bacon!
Remember to present the above decree to your human should they feel they need not provide you with an adequate supply of bacon on BACON SATURDAY! Those of you who are not CATS, please feel free to mark through the word CAT and substitute whatever species you are – you have my royal permission!
I received a NEW item for our bacon repertoire from the beautiful Katie Isabella – who knew???? This looks DELISH!
Other items on today’s agenda include these snackables:
LOOKING DELICIOUS TOO RIGHT? RIGHT!!!!!!!!
Bacon just goes with EVERYTHING…………….and I do mean everything. Doesn’t matter WHICH meal of the day or if it’s a snack even – it’s just tasty stuff 24/7. I should know – I’m the KING OF BACON thanks to my brother Angel Sammy who passed the crown on to me when he left for the Bridge. Too bad we couldn’t be CO-KINGS together before he left!
What a team that would have been!!!
In case you were wondering – this year’s crop is moving along nicely in the greenhouse. If you want us to, we can have a harvest party like we had last year. Just tell me in Comments!
Our Greenhouse Garden Gnome is keeping watch!
Enjoy Bacon Saturday!
Love, King Teddy

OOPS…..well we can’t please everyone right Teddy?

Double Bubble Thursday – TWO Posts in One!
First we celebrate Thankful Thursday with Brian at his blog HERE and this week I want to say that I continue to be thankful that my little brother Teddy is making my Mom and Dad so happy.
He’s a laugh a minute and smart as a whip – he talks CONSTANTLY and Mom and Dad get a big kick out of it…….GO TEDDY GO! If you want to join in Brian’s “Thankful” Hop, click his badge and go – use the linky tool and hook your blog up!
NOW we tackle Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!
Today we are writing poems that are about something beginning with the letter “K” !
by Angel Sammy Kimmell 2-23-17
What a delicious dream
Is a donut from Krispy Kreme
Mom can’t just walk by them
She simply HAS to buy some!
At home she finds a spot
Where Dad thinks they are not
It is a sinful need
Perhaps it might be greed!
But she hoards them like a treasure
Tasty goodness such a pleasure!
When she eats one she gets a smile
When at last they are no more
She will travel back to the store
And begin all over again……..
With her TASTY, KRISPY sin !!
If you have written a poem today and would like to SHARE it – you can either put the link to your blog where your poem is located in MY comments so we can follow you and read it, OR you can even just post your poem in my comments here! Either way – WRITE A POEM TODAY – you’ll have fun with it I bet! We sure do……………
Thanks for stopping by for a little POETRY!
Oui Oui – it’s ME!
Monsieur Angel Sammy
Time to “Fill-Er-Up” !!
Every Friday we join in the jointly hosted Friendly Fill-ins that are put together by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andMeowing! It’s a blog hop and each week they give us four sentences with blanks in them and we fill in the blanks! Fun huh? Well it is……..if you wanna join in the fun click the badge above and go to McGuffy’s and hook yourself up with the LINKY TOOL and fill-in!
This week’s sentences are below and my answers are in RED!
1. All my illnesses and arthritis (and it used to make me feel old but now I’m over the Bridge and young again!)makes me feel old.
2.Being an Angel and running free and floating on clouds makes me feel young.
3. I have been looking for a kitty for my parents to adopt – the search goes on! .
4. Being an Angel is really wonderful except I miss my Mom’s warm lap! .
There you have it! Another filling in exercise completed. I hope everyone is planning on having a super duper weekend – because it’s time to start thinking about that! Everyone around my area here in Virginia is thinking about the Inauguration and the horrible traffic jams there will be EVERYWHERE. We’re an hour PLUS away from town but it will be insane here too – trust me……traffic is getting worse and worse even out here! No traffic problems at the Rainbow Bridge though. Our clouds have automatic pilot and we just think where we want to be and WHAMMO we’re there. I’m sure a lot of people wish they could do that when they have to commute to work………..thankfully my peeps are RETIRED! No traffic to worry about. As for me………..
Wake me when it’s over purrrrlease!
See you tomorrow for Bacon Caturday!
Hugs, Angel Sammy
It’s Been A Tough Week
(not really but it got your attention – right???)
It’s BACON day……..
I not only “has a happy” I has a brand new Bacon Meme that my buddy Toby from The Wrecking Crew made for me! Whatcha think? I’ll add it to my growing collection of bacon memes from my friends…………..If you click on the Meme it will go to Toby’s blog (just in case you don’t know him – you can visit him!):
Toby and I are both ginger doods……He’s on the LEFT and I’m in my King of Baconia crown on the right!
AND, I also received a photo from my Auntie Carol (my Mom’s sister) showing that her shih-Tzu Toby (yes another Toby!) is becoming a real bacon lover too…………he seems to be QUITE fascinated by the commercial on his TV!
Looks like the wonderfulness of bacon has made it’s way into my Cousin’s home in W. Virginia…………………….!
THANK YOU MISS SABINA FROM THE WRECKING CREW AND THANK YOU AUNTIE CAROL !
NOT AT MY HOUSE!!!!!
This is one of our favorite graphics……makes me giggle and proves there’s no shortage here!
The weekend is off to a roaring start – our temperature has dropped a bit and the humidity has come down a lot and we can BREATHE outside again (that THICK air is tough on an old guy like me!) – so yesterday I spent a lot of time on the front porch snoozing………..Today I plan on doing the same thing.
Mom! That’s not ME – that’s the sleeping cat sculpture!
Silly Mom…………..this is me checking out a possible nap spot for today’s nap sessions on the porch………..
But right now, I think I’ll go back to the kitchen to see if my bacon is ready…………………Mom’s making those adorable bacon-pancake thingies – you remember the ones?
Hmm….on second thought maybe I should try one of those pancake thingies with bacon in it……………….could be good……………maybe with a tiny dab of maple syrup on it??? Yah I know I shouldn’t have sugar but a TINY DROP won’t hurt!!!!
Happy Saturday !!!!!!
Bonjour……..! Monsieur Bacon Boy!
If you’re as CRAZY for bacon as I am – join my club! This is our official badge!
YES IT IS!
The Broomhildas won’t be in charge of this activity today – they are on vacation so we had to get a substitute to help us get the house whipped into shape today. When we told the maid service what we were looking for, they said they only had a couple of candidates……..I said “send ’em on over”…………five minutes later I answered the door:
Hello! We’re from ACME Cleaners………Here’s our card:
We’re Sissy and Prissy and today we’re having a two for one sale…………we’ll both be filling in for you! We even have a couple of others helping us out for FREE! One is a whiz at cleaning dishes:
Then we have a couple who help us move buckets and cleaning equipment around for us:
We even have a supervisor!!!!!
So you all just sit back and relax and we’ll have your house cleaned in NO TIME……………………….we have “special equipment” that makes short work of the job!
Before you knew it – they truly HAD cleaned the whole house – even with all their noisy machinery none of us minded because they finished in like FIFTEEN MINUTES! That’s right – three floors of house!
HOLD IT DOWN WILL YA?
WHAT? You’re done? I was gonna help out!
So that’s that! This crew won’t be back next week but who the heck knows if the Broomhildas will return or if we’ll get a whole pile of NEW cleaner-uppers? I swear – NEVER a dull moment in “THE HOUSE OF KIMMELL”……………
Before I go……….
I wanted to pawticipate in my friends from 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader who are co-hosting a fun blog hop on Fridays called FRIDAY FILL-INS!
They have four sentences and you just fill in the blanks then everybody sees what kinds of sentences we’ve constructed because it tells a LOT about us and it’s fun! This Friday’s sentences are below and my Mom’s “fill-ins” are in red! You should join in and have some fun “filling in” !
- Whatever happened to Friday night date night?
- I always have a cookout with all the trimmings for just me and my husband (and Sam) on Memorial Day ( or your country’s equivalent).
- I used to wish I’ve never grow old, but now that I have, it’s not so bad!
- I just cannot stay up late at night , no matter what’s on TV or how hard I try to stay awake!
Enjoy your Friday !
The Broomhildas have arrived………Mr. and Mrs. and Baby Boomer again – their Kitty Nanny returns from vacation next week so Boomer won’t be back. No matter how CUTE he is! SuzieQ has a crush on him which could mean TROUBLE.
So now the fun begins……….I’m staying one step ahead of the cleaning crew today……….yep – I’ve already been in the bathroom……
That’s done so they won’t have to go in there to clean. See? Aren’t I helpful? I even helped Mom pull the sofa out from the wall for them……………
uhoh……so that’s where Dad’s carkeys have been….WHOOPS
I’m hoping they finish and get out of here before nap time. I don’t want to worry about them finding me in my hiding spot or disturbing me at all…………….I’ll just pop on my headphones just in case and groove while they hoove(r). HA HA HA
I sure do lead an exciting life don’t I?????
Well maybe not THAT excited but for an old guy, pretty danged exciting! I hope you have an EXCITING Friday!!
Bye Bye Broomhildas!
You know who the Clean Team is here!
Such a lovely couple they are…….AND when they’re not arguing over who’s doing a better job of cleaning, they are quite nice really. I’m getting used to them (what’s that say about me?!). Today they showed up with a surprise though…………when I opened the door to let them in, they had a little something with them!
Their regular babysitter couldn’t make it to their house today so they had to bring their baby along………….A baby broom! I asked what his name was and just then the phone rang so I never got the answer……maybe they named him “Whisk” since he’s a small Broom? Naaaa……couldn’t have.
Anyway, they got to work right away round here…………………….
HOLD IT DOWN WILL YA?
Before I knew it, they were packing up their cleaning stuff and were out of here……….so I don’t know what their kid’s name is! Bobby? Bongo? Bruiser? Barney? Baby B? Bubba? Maybe I can ask them next week when they come.
My Dad took care of the one cleaning duty the Broomhildas DON’T do when they’re here!
Good thing Mom wasn’t involved….she has a “different” outlook on cleaning!
Well that’s the excitement around here today – I’m guessing that no matter WHAT’s going on at your house, it’s more FUN than my house is today. Yep……I’m guessing it’s the truth!
All that snoopervising was exhausting…..
My Mom told me to put this in today’s blog even if it’s not got anything to do with our post. She just likes it……Mom, you’re weird!
As I leave, here’s some food for thought relative to tomorrow’s BACON Saturday!
Hugs and Stuff, Sammy
Howdy Friends! It’s Saturday finally……………………and another chance to talk about BACON (as if we need an excuse!).
I know most of you follow Madi’s Blog HERE and saw her post about the strange visitors in her friend’s neighbor’s yard last week????? Well, it got me thinking about the convenience of a bacon-lover like me if you had HOME DELIVERY of fresh bacon every week………….this would be FRESH right? Her friend looked out her window and saw THIS:
Now Madi’s Mom’s friends live in a somewhat rural area but no pig farm next door – – – they have NO IDEA where these doods came from but obviously they are loving the garden. I’m thinking “FRESH BACON HAS ARRIVED!!!!!!”.
Anyway, it’s Saturday and indeed we are having bacon here at my house but not from anything we found in our front yard……..it was in our refrigerator!
Never fear little guy – there’s an abundance of bacon in the refrigerator so you’ll get yours!
NOPE – NOT HERE!!
One thing we DO have a shortage of though is SUN. It’s been days and days and days. I’m covered with green algae and moss (well, not really but you get the idea).
The rain just isn’t stopping!!!!! Things might get DRASTIC around here…….
No worries with me – at least I won’t tip the boat over because I’m skinny – not like this porky guy!
Well I guess I shouldn’t complain – imagine if we had two weeks worth of WET days in the winter! We’d be in BIG TROUBLE with snow! Maybe I’d better shut my mouth and be happy about the rain………..even if it’s tough.
Happy BACON Day! See you tomorrow
for Mom’s Day Selfies!
P.S. Remember May 10th is “Wags and Waves for Forrest Day”………..a tribute to the pup from Down Under who left us for the Bridge so recently – Bev Green’s family brought home Forrest’s angel ashes today – we’ll wave and wag to Forrest on Tuesday. By the way, even though I will be having a post for that occasion, I will ALSO have a Teaser post. You asked for it – you got it!
If you want to pawticipate in Forrest’s tribute, you may use the poster I made for the occasion………..and post a photo that day of you wagging or waving to our departed friend Angel Forrest……..
It’s that time again!
Ah yes….the day we all love to hate unless you’re like me and no longer hear all that racket all the “cleaning machinery” makes. I knew if I thought long and hard I could come up with something POSITIVE to say about my hearing loss! HAHAHA
At least the cleaning crew is somewhat entertaining – Broomhilda has now introduced her helper/husband Mr. Broomhilda and the two of them are real work horses (oops I mean work bulldogs):
What a team………………Mom and I think that these two SCARE the dirt/dust away and don’t even NEED to use their cleaning equipment. HAHA…….
I will make my rounds behind them making sure they do a good job…………….I won’t stand for any foolishness! Everything MUST be done and done well!
I am a constant reminder to my Mom and Dad that having ME is a whole lot better than having things like dishwashers and refrigerators and stuff that need to be kept clean and tidy!
As for Mom asking me to help out the cleaning crew, or get out of the way because they’re coming to clean MY nap spots up – know what I say to that?????
SEE? Monster Day is a piece of cake (with cat treats on top!)
Hugs, Sam the Snoopervisor
