Friendly Fill-Ins Friday


Hello!  Happy Friday!

Today we’re filling in sentences thanks to the jointly hosted Friendly Fill-ins by 15andmeowing and McGuffysReader !   You can click on the link for McGuffy’s Reade if you’d like to join up with this blog hop – it’s tons of fun and a good way to meet new bloggers AND tell everyone about YOU!


 Here are today’s sentences……………!   My fill-ins are in BLUE and Mom’s are in RED.   We each filled in TWO sentences this time!

1. My guiding word for 2017 is ANGELS.
2. I’ve never been to a high school class reunion.
3. Truth be told I am superstitious about wearing GREEN on St. Pat’s Day – Mom used to put a green collar on me!.   (*Yes we could have said superstitious about Friday the 13th but I’ve NEVER been that way although many are!!

4.Lately, I have been very cognizant of the fact that now that I’m older time is FLYING by whereas when I was young, time went on and on forever (it seemed!).

SO, that’s it for Filling in today……………………remember to join in the HOP if you want to share your sentence fill-ins……………and even if you don’t, go visit McGuffy’s Reader to see everyone else’s fill-ins.   I guarantee it’s fun!
Mom and Dad are supposed to get SNOW tomorrow…….and maybe even a bit of ice.   I might get a day pass from the Bridge to spend with them because they won’t be able to go anywhere if it snows and I can keep them company!
NO SNOW HERE!!!!   Tee Hee
See you tomorrow for BACON CATURDAY…………

The Joy of Bacon


Ah yes……maybe I should

write a book?  “The Joy of Bacon”

by Sammy Bacon Boy Kimmell


Mom didn’t let me down this morning either…..bacon we had AND waffles too!   Not that I ate the waffle part – that was for Mom and Dad – but the bacon I was totally on board with.   Once my sniffer got WIND (haha) of it, I was all over the kitchen following Mom!



I was dressed and ready to go – bacon socks and hat and my chair pulled right up to the table like a BIG GUY!



WAIT – did I say “BIG BOY”??   Sitting in a high chair??? I don’t THINK so!!

Anyway, I got my bacon and now I’m set for the day.  

I'm one "fully baconized" boy now!!!!

I’m one “fully baconized” boy now!!!!

Before I go, I must tell you this WEIRD but true fact.   We’ve had nice weather for a couple of weeks – – – like Spring stuff………….but tomorrow – THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING (!!!) we are going to have SNOW………..that’s right………from 1-3 inches of the stuff.   Is that fair?   NO IT IS NOT!    Will I whine about it?  You betcha!   Oh well, what can I do about it – nothing except hope it doesn’t happen!   Maybe a SAMMY WHAMMY would help?


I hope snow is NOT in your forecast for the first day of Spring……………………!!!  

Hugs, Sammy

The Wizard of Bacon

Melting Thursday


Hello!    We are MELTING………..well not “WE” but our area is getting some good sunshine and temps in the 40s so all of this snow is slowly but surely disappearing.  We still have over a foot of it on the lawn but the streets are looking good so there’s HOPE after all – at least for us.   Some places got a lot more of Jonas’s white stuff than we did so we hope they fare as well as we are………


We hope maybe that’s our annual quota of snow so we won’t get any more……………fat chance right?

My parents were finally able to drive out of our neighborhood yesterday – which was a good thing because even though Mom had stocked up on EVERYTHING before the storm came, we were almost (gasp) out of Gerber’s Beef Baby Food which is what I take my pill with!

SAMGERBERYep – they don’t know it but I could be their new poster child.  It’s the only thing Mom has found that I will eat that icky pill in…………..and trust me – we tried EVERYTHING!

Now something serious for a minute………………one of my oldest and dearest and cutest friends, Alfie (also known as Gaylord) from Mollie and Alfie’s blog went to the Bridge a few days ago.   Their Mom has a wonderful online (Etsy) store with all kinds of wonderful handmade and FUN things for pets.   I have a lot of their stuff in my house – toys and placques – nip mats too – everything is wonderful (there’s a link to the store on my sidebar).   My heart was broken to learn that Alfie had gone but then I realized when I read their blog that Alfie the Angel only has ONE ANGEL WING right now because he has a mission to stay here and drive his sister Mollie crazy – which is how he will earn his SECOND Angel Wing.   I’m sure he can do this too as he and Mollie were FAST friends.    Please visit Alfie’s blog if you haven’t already…………and his store too – they have links on their blog to the store as well.   Alfie was a dear boy – he and Mollie were “the two Blondes” on the other side of the Pond…………Click on Alfie One Wing’s photo to visit:


I will miss you Alfie………..

Now – please resume your regular internet surfing because that’s it for my blog for today!  See you tomorrow peeps!

Love, Sammy

Cold Enough For Snow


Brrrrrrr…………………it’s TOTALLY been cold enough for snow here but so far we haven’t had any.   Day before yesterday the weather people said “snow flurries/showers” for Tuesday but that never happened.   At least not HERE.   Some places had a dusting.    But talking about it got me to thinking about how many snowy photos I had in my photo stash…….so I thought I’d PLAY MAKE BELIEVE and show some of them just to prove that I, Samuel Kimmell, CAN have FUN in the snow!

This is actually ME in the snow several years ago…….when I was younger I absolutely LOVED the snow.   I’d follow Mom’s foot prints in the snow no matter how deep they were………

Sam looking mighty small in the snow


Sammy Following Mom's Path in The Snow

I musta been nuts back then…..

Now the REST of these are photoshopped ME in the snow………………but I am having fun – and if we actually DO get some snow this winter (which I’m sure we will) I’ll try to have fun in it again I promise.   Unless I decide to just sleep right through it all until Spring!

As wacky as the weather has been over this past year or so, we’ll probably have a “WHITE SPRING” instead of a “WHITE CHRISTMAS”………wouldn’t surprise me one bit!

Happy Thursday! 

Snoozy Sam

Me, this afternoon while Mom worked on this blog for me!


Bacon Time!

For MEEEE???????????

For MEEEE???????????

It’s the most wonderful day of the week…………BACON DAY.   You may remember that last year around the holiday, my cousin Bacon sent me a cool hat which was too big for me but my Mom wore it and held me to prove we received it.   Can you see what it says on it????  HMMM????


BACON!!!!!   This was, I think, a few days before Christmas – Mom has one of her silly Christmas sweatshirts on – it says “NAUGHTY” on it (like we didn’t already know she was on Santa’s Naughty list?????)

I did get a way cool item to add to my collection of bacon-related STUFF though this week from my buds at Tabbies O Trout Towne – check it out!   I wonder if the money inside tastes like bacon???


Thanks Tabbies!  You’re the best!   Always on the lookout for wacky bacon stuff…………….like these from my stash!

Today should be a great day – why?  Because the house got monsterized yesterday and even the YARD was monsterized.   All the leaves that were down (and we had a ton) are gone.  Mom and Dad did the final leaf pick-up/grind-up/pile-up for this Fall so all that noisy equipment is now STORED for the season!  YAY!!!!   We can only hope that the snow monster machine doesn’t have to make an appearance this winter……..Dad’s too old for that stuff.   He’s nuts (actually he’s just too cheap to hire someone to do our 250 foot driveway……OR…….that’s one of his favorite winter toys – the snowblower!).    He looks happy doesn’t he?    This is an old photo – we haven’t had snow yet this year……thank heavens.



As you know, Bacon’s little brother BASHFUL has been with us for a while now and I’m about to send him back home in time for Christmas.   I’ll share the last of the photos I’ve taken with the little rock dude first of next week………….he’s been a JOY to entertain.   Unlike the ELF ON THE SHELF NIGHTMARE GUY, Bashful knows how to behave, be polite, express his appreciation, and have fun!   But that’s not all………..when Bashful heads back home to Hotel Thompson, he’s going to be bringing a friend he met here with him.    I won’t say more……I’ll let Bacon tell you about her when Bashful gets back home with his traveling companion.

That’s it for now – I’m heading back to the kitchen because there might just be some bacon in my dish…………sometimes when I think I’ve had my share, Mom surprises me with MORE.   A guy can hope…………………..right?

Hugs, Sammy
