Hi everyone! We have a guest staying with us.
Mrs. Potato Head is going to be here for a while. Until The Great One no longer finds her scary. Mom got this for her for Valentine’s Day, but it scared The Great One. I don’t think she is scary, but her hair does bear a striking resemblance to the president’s hair.
We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day. Emmy is thankful that she got to go to Paris with Madi as part of Critter Couture and get this beautiful gown.
Prancie is busy hogging the teepee so I decided to write a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.
We had to write a poem to go with this photo. I like to keep it simple so here is my haiku.
maybe there is life out there
we may never know
And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffty’s Reader came up with the second two.
1. My Chinese zodiac animal sign is __________________.
2. My zodiac sign is ___________________.
3. Income tax season .
4. In hindsight, .
Before we get started, we want to offer our condolences to Brian and his family on the loss of his sister, Kit. She was a proud Crotchety Cougar and will be missed by all.
Joanie was cuddling on the bed with her Gremmie so look what I got back.
Mom has a question for everyone. She is going to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge again. Last year, she crocheted something new everyday to go with the letters and then had a giveaway at the end of the month with 2 winners that got all the cat toys and hats. She wants to do that again this year with all different items, but can’t think of ideas for the following letters , I will put in parentheses what she made last year: N(nip tea bag), Q ( Queen’s crown), U ( Uncle Sam’s hat) and W(whale). Any ideas are greatly appreciated and please remember that mom is not that great at crochet so she can’t make unicorns or anything like that.

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.
First, I have a question. Who told Joanie to have Gremmie guard her tent?
I am thankful that we have a lot of warm and soft places to snooze so I don’t need the tent.
Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We were asked to write a poem based on this photo.
Angry waves surround
pirates pillaging the ship
no help to be found
And the winner of the Valentine’s Giveaway is Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles.

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.
Mom promised me my Gremmie won’t ever turn into the bad kind so I took the plastic off of him. I got him a skateboard to play with, but he can’t wear a helmet ( hims ears are too big). Does anyone know where to get a helmet for a gremlin?
Prancie keeps stealing my tent.
I do not! It belongs to both of us. Gremmie is all yours though.
Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.
I am thankful that I can still jump up to the tall bureau this kitty cave is on. Joanie thinks it is hers, but she needs to share.
Poor Joanie, she watched Gremlins and now she is very afraid of Gremmie getting wet. She covered him in plastic to protect him ( don’t worry, she gave him air holes to breathe and eat).
Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:
Stairs leading somewhere
go up if you dare.
Nothing is that scary
not like the movie, Carrie.
Maybe there is a treasure
something you can’t measure.
Now climb those stairs,
I promise there are no bears.
Grammie has been complaining that kaTwo never gets blog time so here she is , helping with the blog.
And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie at McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Right now, they both have worpress blogs so they can’t display the link on their blog, you will be redirected to a separate page. We are working to find a new link service that is compatible with wordpress, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi everyone! I don’t have much to report this week. Mom has been acting pretty normal ( for her). She did start her decluttering challenge that she told you about the other day. The first room is the bedroom ( not the closet though, that gets it’s own week). Mostly she just moved the crap that doesn’t belong in there and moved it to the dining room for now.
Brody wants to say hi to his sweet Leia.
And Joanie is still enjoying Gremmie.
Gremmie is playing with Weebles.

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.
I am thankful that my folks never get mad at me. Look at the paper I shredded and they just laugh and say I am an artist. .Sorry about the laser eyes, mom could use a photography class. I am also thankful that I will get to see my Grammie today.
And here is my poem based on this photo:
A little over a year ago,
can’t remember if there was snow.
Our friend, Sammy was ready to leave
his passing everyone would grieve.
Before he left, he took a ride
in a hot air balloon, riding inside.
We each showed him a special place
we chose Emily Dickinson’s birth place.
I know you already know it,
but Sammy was an excellent poet.
More than that , he was a friend to all
and when he left, we all did bawl.

Prancie has her poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, participants were asked to write a poem based on this photo:
Creativity is always fun
yet different for everyone.
Some turn a wall into a tree

Someone may write a song,
that would take too long.

that is my favorite kitty caper.
Prancie being creative

Hi everyone! We hope you all had a nice Christmas.
Sammy thinks Santa left him cookies
Grammie got me lots of treats
Emmy got a brown mouse in her stocking
Mommy got Daddy a telescope ( this is him assembling it)
Millie opened this big container of treats from Grammie
KaTwo got these toys from Grammie
And Joanie got her Gremlin, she named him Gremmie
We think maybe Grammie is the real Santa.
Mom even did something stupid for me to write about. She was making gingerbread truffles so she melted white chocolate in the microwave. She thought she set it for a minute and wandered off, when she got back in the room, the microwave was still on and she realized she hit an extra zero so it was set for 10 minutes. Luckily, it had only been 3 minutes, enough to ruin the chocolate, but she was able to save the bowl.
