Wow, that was one lovely, relaxing week, filled with much eating, bike riding, book reading, wine drinking and movie watching. Brutus had an indulgent week, too, and if you don’t believe me, just check out his bacon hangover in this photo. (I think we may be battling an addiction here.)

While I was away, it was reported that the price of bacon has begun to soar. I’m willing to drive less to save on gasoline, but you can forget about decreasing my bacon intake. In fact, I’m going to rush right out and try the newest sensation: Bacon Jerky! And it’s even on sale if you act now! Thanks to the bacon freaks at cvwine.com for their constant innovation in the world of meat candy.

And finally, I discovered something wonderful last week. Austin Winters, a 10-year old leukemia patient, recently won a national art contest for his animated creation, BACON BOY! I have been scouring the internet trying to find an image of this superhero (and his nemesis Fry Guy) but to no avail. I guess I’ll just have to wait for a t-shirt from the Children’s Healing Art Project or a glimpse of the Museum of Glass’ sculpture. Congratulations, Austin! A bacon superhero is just what this world needed.
