Happy Birthday Joanie and Sammy!

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

I am thankful for Joanie and Sammy who are turning 13 today. I wanted cake ( any excuse for cake) , but later today they will get their gifts and treats. We will show those photos tomorrow.

Millie and Penny are thankful they get to be the kitties to use this cool fountain we won from Lola. It is a Petmate Fresh Flow Rain fountain that is battery operated.  It shuts off automatically and turns back on every 15 minutes. Of course, I am not one to read directions so I thought it was broken when it stopped and I couldn’t get it to start again.My hubby solved that mystery.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Before there was tv and internet
this hobby would keep you out of debt.
It will take you anywhere
even face to face with a bear.
Luckily, we still have books
even if some are stored on nooks.
Whenever you want to get away
just open a book and enjoy your day.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
 
1. The last time I ____________was ____________________.
 
2. __________________isn’t ___________________.
3. _________ is a blessing in disguise.
4. My favorite word is _________.

Hi everyone, Emmy here, I refused to open my eyes for the photo. I am punishing mom for schlepping me off to the cardiologist yesterday. It is a whole hour away! Right across the street is a butterfly conservatory and my folks wouldn’t take me. They claim no pets are allowed- I call that discrimination.

My heart is pretty much the same with a mild increase in left atrial size, but I am stable.. I will take my meds every 12 hours now instead of every 24. I don’t need to go back for another check for 9 whole months though.Mom is thankful that I am not significantly worse.She is also thankful that we have such a good cardiologist available for me.

KaTwo is mom’s reading buddy so she is thankful to have her very own library card to Amber’s library. If you love to read, you can get one too. Click here. We love Amber’s book reviews and look forward to her reviewing Prancie’s Prayer.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

crisp fall air is here
leaves of orange and red too
sit here and enjoy

Prancie and I are thankful that our book is in print, well, this is the copy we need to check then it will be ready in 6 weeks.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Playgrounds are lots of fun
a place to play and run.
You can swing real high
with your folks nearby.
Don’t forget the see-saw and merry-go-round
so much to do-look around!
And for the most fun ride,
don’t forget the slide.

Joanie is thankful that her Gremmie passed his physical.Good heart beat.And no fever.

I said , “good the doctor has arrived.” And the Great One replied, ” I am not a real doctor, just pretend.”  Too cute 🙂

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

This van reminds me of walking the garbage trail,
a 6 mile charity walk, luckily it didn’t hail
It is to raise money for Huntington’s disease
a cause that makes it worth the sore knees.
Arlo Guthrie does this for his Dad
who passed too early, it makes him mad.
All walkers get to ride in a hippie van
brought to the start every woman and man.
 Photo of Arlo Guthrie

My hubby and I did this walk in 2012, but we only made it about 2 miles. Luckily, the hippie vans drive around and will pick you up when you are tired and bring you back. Our nurse friend is involved with the planning of it so we went to support her and a good cause.

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Mom is thankful that I let her snorgle my tummy.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Everyone is so rushed now,
what’s the big rush anyhow?
Need to get there super fast
slowing down makes them aghast.
Many years ago people loved the train,
enjoying a leisurely meal , they would not complain.
Now we must get to that vacation,
hurry to your destination.
Instead ,just enjoy the journey,
before you end up on a gurney.

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I is thankful that Mom ordered my purple glasses online for me. My head is a little too small though.

This poem is for  Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo.

I think of many things when I see a river boat
I think of Twain and novels he wrote.
I think of Proud Mary, a great song,
not that Tina Turner got it wrong,
but CCR played it best
 and of that I do not jest.
I needs to rest up now before The Great One gets here.

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful for one-eyes Louie the Lobster. I got a little carried away with the silvervine and one of his eyes fell off. I am also thankful The Great One is coming to visit me today. We are going to have lots of fun and play dress up and Peppa the Pig. Then Mom and her are going to Build-A-Bear. I hope they buy me some purple sunglasses.Today there is a special and you pay your age to build one so she will only be $2 plus accessories.

Mom called dibs on taking The Great One to Build-A-Bear while she was still in her mommy’s belly.
