Let’s hear it for Bacon!
TinkerToy here again, reminding you that nobody really calls me that but my mom. My friends call me Tink. And I want to tell you about one of them – Bacon. (Yes – that Bacon – the one who writes the Dear Bacon advice column, not to name drop.)
Well, I just found out he’s also a producer!
And he’s gonna’ make me a star too!
He has this interview show online called SpotLight Thursday, and he just asked me to be in it. Just like that. Right out of the blue.
And guess what else? It’s gonna’ be ALL about me – sorta’ like that Actor’s Studio interview show Mom loves where all kinds of stars answer questions about their lives, only it’s online – on a blog.
So, of course, I want to tell you all about HIM!
Way back before I dubbed him an official member of The Canine Club, Bacon was born a miniature pot bellied pig.
His parents adopted him when he was only three weeks old – and he’s been one of my blog buddies since my debut guest-post, Blogging Tips from a Shih Tzu.
He has his own quarters at the Hotel Thompson — and he blogs and journals and otherwise tells all about practically everything and everyone in his life, including his adopted blogging brother Houdini (who’s a dog-dog like me), his forever Mom and Dad (who tells the world’s corniest jokes, but don’t hurt his feelings), his purr sibling Hemi, and a whole kennel’s worth of pet rocks.
The pet rock invasion began when one of them, Bashful, began traveling. He suddenly started to make a whole lot of friends who really liked to be around him. They sorta’ followed him back to Hotel Thompson for his visits home and just decided, one by one, that they would stay. So now they’re all part of the family.
They also have their very own reporter – Journalist Rocky the Squirrel (Keeping [his] paws on the nuts of the world!”)
Don’t forget that you can always check out the sidebar
for a reminder of how links work on this site, they’re subtle ==>
So STAY TUNED
I’ll let you know as soon as I turn up in the Spotlight – because Mom always says, “inquiring minds want to know“ — and I know you ALL have one of those, right?
It’s tentatively scheduled toward the end of February
(and remember, it’s Spotlight Thursday – so it won’t be on any of the other days).
For those of you who just can’t wait that long, I’ve included a few links to some other 4-legs stars below – with links to their very own blogging sites too. If you are a blogging 4-legs looking for the rest of us, check ’em out! (or a parrot or other kind of bird – kingdom-diversity always welcome on THIS blog!)
Be sure to tell ’em Tink sent you!
A Few Other Blogging 4-legses in the SpotLight
- Buggz Cashmanilla — who can be found on the Ladybuggz blog
(and we’re actually distantly related)
- Meet Kona – blogging at TailsbytheSea
- Argentia Mists Easy Rider – blogging at Easyweimaraner
- Harper Lee and Tallulah Bee — blogging at thek9harperlee
- Speedy — blogging at Speedy the Cheeky Rex Rabbit
- Madeline and Prissy — a couple more blogging pigs from The Bonnell Farm
And links from a FEW of my wonderful PARTY guests!
(more to come)

Purrs and meows from Beba and Barmalei

Okay guys – YOU fill up my Relateds to come, okay?
Anybody ELSE want to join my pack? Now that I get to be online sometimes, I’m gonna’ keep inviting all the blogging dogs (and cats, pigs, parrots, bunnies, hamsters – or any other animals in the kingdom) to leave me a link to one of your posts down there in the comments section. According to Mom, I need to always include some Related Content if I’m going to follow her format.
Again, you two-legses can leave a comment for my mom – so she doesn’t feel like I’m about to take over her blog. I care about her feelings, after all (and I don’t want to make her jealous).
And go see who came to MY PARTY if you wanna’ meet a whole bunch more fur-faced bloggers (cats, even – and some other pigs who are full-fledged pigs!)
If you missed it, it’s still not to late to drop by and leave a calling card.
(Mom insists we go by ADD rules here on our Evergreen blog, so comments never close).
In my upcoming posts, I’ll keep perusing the guest list for links to fluff up my Related Content section, so run on over and make sure you’re on that list.
BY THE WAY: Mom can’t announce the actual start of Group Coaching until she has an actual GROUP. So if a few of you guys who said you wanted to do it are waiting for a special invitation or something, consider this IT! Sign up HERE
Oh yeah – in case you haven’t been in the stores lately
Pick up your Valentines Day treats before they’re all gone!
(and don’t forget that fur-faces like treats too –
even tho’ we can’t have the chocolate kind)

A couple of GREAT ones from and about my Mom
BY THE WAY: Since ADDandSoMuchMore.com is an Evergreen site, Mom revisits her content periodically to update links — when you link back, like, follow or comment, you STAY on the page. When you do not, she tells me you run a high risk of getting replaced by a site with a more generous come-from.
