Time to Party for a Surprise Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday to Timbo, the man behind the pen (Pig Pen?) at Hambo Stamps!

The Bacon Bits are surprising Tim with a little birthday fun today and we would love to have you join us in celebrating! If you arrived from Melissa's blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened by, be sure to start at Karin's blog for the whole story and to have a chance at winning the birthday prize!


A little story for you:

Jose the Cow's Adventure Getting to the Party:  Jose the cow worked on an Eco-lodge in Nicaragua where he happily worked to help sustain the resort.  Upon hearing about Timbo's birthday though, he knew he would have to find a way to make it to the party.  First he knew he had to dress properly for such a  festive occasion, so he asked his farmer friend, Julio, to find him a fabulous tie.  Then Jose set out on his trip to Timbo's birthday party.  He had to pass by the Howler monkeys that howled "have a great time Jose", then the toucans that squawked "Have a safe trip!", and then the sloths that didn't say much of anything (well at least not until Jose had already passed by...they are slow after all!).  He found the zip-line and clipped himself in so he could fly through the rainforest...it is much faster to travel that way after all!  He had to make sure he picked up his hooves as he passed over the very active volcanoes...and plug his nose because the smell of sulfur is stinky!  He finally found his way to the airport and boarded a plane to the Unites States of America.  By the time he reached the party he was ready for a drink and a party!  Happy Birthday Timbo!!

Now off to Judy's Blog (can't wait to see what happens with her animal!), where you can see what happens next at Timbo's Birthday Bash! If you get lost, here is the order of birthday fun:

I like the way you colored the cow. The orange dotted circle & the plaid behind that are pretty too.
