Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Before I get started, I want to have a moment of silence for our friend Esme, who left for The Rainbow Bridge last week. Please visit her family if you haven’t already. Click here..

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful to feel better this week and I am thankful for all your purrs and prayers.

I haven’t seen Grammie since last Wednesday. I hope she comes to see me soon, I love her so very much.

How cute do I look in my harness? Here I am looking for a four leaf clover.

Joanie wants us to call her Dr. Joanie because she took her own stitches out. Her recheck was good though and she is all healed.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. I used all 4 of the K word prompts this week.

My purrince is really my king
this is not just some fling
Our love is true
without him I ‘d be blue
The only boy with a key to my heart
it was true love right from the start
He makes my heart kindle
may our fire never dwindle

 

Mom wants to join Wandering Through The Shelves Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop this week because the theme is the stage.

Here’s my list- all musicals, I can’t sing, but I love musicals.

1. Grease (1978)- I had such a crush on John Travolta ( yes, someone before Nic Cage) when I was a kid, my parents took me to see this. Every time I hear a song from it, I want to burst into song ( but I only do when alone, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s eardrums 🙂 ).

2. Annie ( 1982)- There have been other versions since, but I think this is the best.

3.Jersey Boys (2014)- The story of Frankie Vali and The Four Seasons.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1._____________________ is a waste of time.

2. My favorite app is ____________________.

3. My first car was ___________________.

4. The best car I ever owned was ____________________, because ____________.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. Before we start, I want to have a moment of silence for Gertrude of Marg’s Animals who left for The Rainbow Bridge on Monday.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful that we are finally rid of the sickness that we all had ( except Brody). And I will be seeing Grammie today, I love her so very much.

Brody wasn’t sick, but he didn’t escape a trip to the vet. He was due for a rabies vaccine. This week, Brody and I wrote a poem together for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Damn Vet
Mom dragged me off the damn vet
I am starting to think I’m not her favorite pet
I admit I felt like crud
but those vampires shouldn’t have taken my blood
They gave me an anti-nausea shot
I guess that helped a lot
The next day Mom dragged me off too
please remind me to vomit in her shoe
I was given a rabies vaccine
by a lady whose name was not Maxine
To my lovely Leia I send a kiss
to Mom and the Damn vet a hiss!

Emmy also wanted to give writing poetry a try so she used one of the word choices, dark.

Dark
I only come out when it is dark
that is when I get my spark
When everyone else is sound asleep
I wander about not making a peep
In the morning toys scattered on the floor
to pick them all up is quite a chore
Maybe someday I will sleep at night
instead of sleeping while it is light

Do you like my shades?

Mom is participating in Wandering Through the Shelves TMP blog hop again this week, the theme is summer vacation.

  1. A Walk on the Moon ( 1999)- Set in 1969, a family goes to a Jewish summer retreat in The Catskills. Great music and incredible acting by Diane Lane, Liev Schreiber, Viggo Mortensen and a young Anna Paquin. This is one of my favorite films and it doesn’t even have Nicola Cage in it.
  2. Dirty Dancing ( 1987)- I think everyone knows of this one.
  3. Dirty Dancing (2017) – This is a remake of the original and made for tv, but it was pretty good. Abigail Breslin played Baby, I think she seemed too young for the part. The original came out when I was 18 so it could just be that I am so much older now that she seemed extra young. I did like the extra ending in this one.

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Please purr and pray for Annie’s beautiful cat, Chloe Jo , she has been having numerous health problems and was hospitalized for several days.

1. My favorite line from a film is __________________________.

2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is __________________.

3. When I feel down, I                              .

4. If I could                         , I would                           .

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Grammie was here on Monday and we had some relatives over for lunch. I was the only one that got to go in the dining room to visit, that is a cat free zone. I love my Grammie so very much. I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Dad has the rows of blueberries all surrounded with fencing and netting so he thought it would be a great catio for us to go out in,but Mom said, “no cat of mine is going outside!”

She sounds just like Howard’s mother on The Big Bang Theory. Phooey!!

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, we had a choice of 4 words starting with c so I chose camera.

Annoying me with every flash
the least you could do is give me some cash.
A human with a camera is no fun
whenever I see one, I run.
If I can’t avoid this stint
at least I am going to squint.

Mom participated in this month’s 6-words post at Coach Daddy’s Blog. The question was : If you asked someone to read your fortune, what’s the best thing they could say to you? For her answer and many more, click here.

Mom also wants to join Wandering Through the Shelves this week for TMP Television edition medical dramas.

  1. ER ( 1994-2009) – This one is self explanatory. Such a great show.
  2. House ( 2004-2012)- Hugh Laurie played Dr. House, a prescription drug addicted doctor that seemed to hate people, but was an amazing doctor.
  3. Nurse Jackie (2009-2015)- Edie Falco was so incredible in this role , the complete opposite of Carmella Soprano. She played a drug addicted nurse that was excellent at her job. This one is technically listed as a comedy, but there was a lot of drama.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My next ___________________ will be ________________________________.

2. Fireworks__________________________.

3. Freedom                               .

4. This week, I am thankful                                         .

 

 

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Check out my new scratcher that Grammie bought me on Wednesday. I love her so very much. I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am very thankful for my Grammie.

Mom bought me some Greenies, she got Emmy a bag too.

  I wanted party mix though, I am sick of Greenies-phooey!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We had a choice of 4 words that begin with A so I went with apples.

Apples
Some eat apples on a stick,
I wouldn’t even want a lick.
I prefer some meat,
that will get me to eat.
Dad bbq’s me some deer
that someone hunted last year.
So you can keep those apples
and even your snapples.

And now Mom wants to join the The Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves this week because she likes the theme, movies based on true events. She has chosen 3 films based on events that occurred in Massachusetts.

  1. The Fighter (2010)-A film about the boxer, “Irish” Mickey Ward. Mark Wallberg starred and Grammie and Mom were extras in the audience of one of the fight scenes. Cool huh?
  2. The Perfect Storm ( 2000)- Mark Wahlberg was also in this, but Mom isn’t hot for him like she is Nicolas Cage. It is a well done film about a storm in 1991 that caused the death of many fisherman.
  3. Black Mass (2015)- Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, the mobster from South Boston. Mom’s friend’s grandson almost got the role of Whitey’s son, but he was a little too old. Mom helped him practice his lines for his audition.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. I challenge everyone to ________________________ this week.

2. I regret disposing of _____________________________.

3. I have a difficult time admitting                                .

4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be                              .
  I gotta go, Joanie is trying to take over my new scratcher.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday so I am very thankful. I love her so very much. And look what she got for me, well, the purple bag is all mine and the others are for sharing.   And Mom is thankful for these two cute mugs she won from Andy and Dougy’s Dad, if you don’t already follow them, you should check out their blog,they are two adorable Persian brothers.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

This week for Sammy’s Poetry Day, our Sammy wrote a poem for the letter P.

Pee
I like to pee in the tub
I pretend I am in a sub.
When I am mad I pee on the couch
that makes Mom a grouch.
Angel Lucy taught me to pee on the bed
that is something my folks dread.
The pen may be mightier than the sword,
but a well placed pee is never ignored.

And Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves’ Thursday Movie Picks, this week is a TV edition of Period Drama. Here are her choices:

  1. Downtown Abbey ( 2010-2015)- Covers the years 1912-1925, about an aristocratic family and their servants.
  2. Mad Men ( 2007-2015)-  Set in the 1960’s, follows advertising men working on Madison Ave.
  3. Homefront ( 1991-1993)-  I like the clothes, cars, etc. from the 1940’s so I loved this show. It was set in a small Ohio town after WWII.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. The first thing I think about in the morning is _________________________.
2. The last thing I think about before sleep is _____________________________.

Hi everyone? How do I look?

Did I fool you? That is my flat Phoebe, I am up here hiding from Mom. Do you think she will be fooled and put the ear medicine on flat Phoebe? Sure, it beats the pills, but it feels funny.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see Grammie on Monday and Thursday. I love her so very much!!!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day,featuring the letter O. My poem is titled Old.

Old
My Mom is pretty bold
she said I was getting old.
Can she put her foot behind her head?
If she tried, she’d need a week in bed.
Can she climb to the top of my tree?
She would definitely hurt her knee.
She needs to be told
she is the one that is getting old.

We are also joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop this week’s theme is The Underdog.

  1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946):  Poor George Bailey can’t seem to catch a break, especially from that evil Mr. Potter.
  2. Bridget Jones’s Diary ( 2001): Poor Bridget is single, overweight and pestered by her Mum to get a boyfriend. Despite being far from perfect, she is very lovable.
  3. Love Potion #9 (1992): Sandra Bullock plays a geeky biologist who starts to get a lot of male attention when she discovers the power of Love Potion #9.

And we can’t forget the Friendly Fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1.In the Spring, I look forward to _____________________________________.

Dr. Seuss Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Brody wants to thank everyone for the Gotcha Day wishes. He is here to announce the winner of the Dr. Seuss giveaway.

  Congratulations to A Wizard and Angel!

Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that we got to see Grammie Wednesday and she will be back today too. I love her so very much!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day,  featuring the letter L.

Lips
Lips are to give a kiss
mine make me want to hiss.
Stupid rodent ulcer ,
I’m not even a mouser.
I wish it would go away
and not come back another day.

Yup, I have that rodent ulcer again. It is the same one which never healed all the way and when I got off the prednisone, it came right back. Now I have a liquid medicine called Atopica, it is for allergies. I need it daily for a month and then we will cut back. Mom was glad that I gained 6 ounces because she thought I was too thin before. The worst part of going to the vet was that Millie had to go for a thyroid checkup and he doesn’t travel well. He always poops- it was not a fun ride, good thing it wasn’t too cold because Mom had to open a window.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks. This week is “On the Run”. Here are her choices:

  1. The Fugitive ( 1993)- I think this is Harrison Ford’s best film, he plays a Dr. accused of murdering his wife. He goes on the run to find the one-armed man who did it.
  2. Splash ( 1984)- Tom Hanks falls in love with a mermaid ( Daryl Hannah) and they are on the run because scientists want to capture her to study her.
  3. Double Jeopardy ( 1999)- One of my favorite movies, Ashley Judd’s husband fakes his murder and she goes to jail for it. Once released, she is determined to find her son and prove her innocence.

And last, but not least are the fill-ins, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. Please pray for their sweet Maggie as she is going to be having exploratory surgery soon.

Fill-ins:
1. My favorite herb or spice is __________________.
2. An herb/spice I dislike is ________________.
3.Lately, I have been working on                               .

Thankful Thursday and More

Hi everyone! I got to see my Grammie Wednesday- I love her so very much. And she brought me treats and said that I don’t have to share.

I am so thankful for my Grammie that I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am also thankful that a foster home from a shelter was available for me when I needed it so I am going to participate in a cool fundraiser that I read about on The Pet Blog Lady. A 18 year old dog named Morgan was in need of a home so the foster family is going to keep him. He turns 19 in March so they are asking everyone to send him a card and possibly a dollar for the shelter. I am giving one of my very own dollars and Mom and Grammie are too. For all the information, click on the link above.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter K.

KaChoo
Mom’s first cat you were
you taught her to treasure every purr.
You were from a litter of six
3 orange, 2 tabby , 1 gray-quite a mix.
You preferred blue to pink,
your tail had a kink.
You were with her for 16 years
for you, Mom still sheds tears.
I am glad I got to know you too,
my sweet sister KaChoo.

KaChoo was a sweet sister, not to be confused with KaTwo-not so sweet.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Movie Picks again. This week is the TMP Television edition: Super powers/superheroes.

  1. Grimm: Excellent show that is sadly ending after 6 seasons. Grimm is a homicide detective that can see the creatures hidden inside of normal looking people.
  2. Pushing Daisies ( 2007-2009): A quirky show that only had 22 episodes. Ned, has the ability to touch anything ( person, fruit, etc) dead and bring it back to life-but, if he touches it again it is dead forever.
  3. The Flash: Currently on the CW, I chose it because my hubby watches it so I do to once in a while plus we call Joanie, The Flash because she comes running from anywhere when she hears treats being dispensed.

Hi everyone! We are going to do lots of hops today. First off, we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much. Brody is thankful too because Leia said yes to being his Valentine. If you missed her post, click here. thankfulthursdaybadge

And I am thankful for my purrince, he sent me a beautiful Valentine’s card with a lovely poem in it. I am such a lucky girl.

I am also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter I.

Indoor Only
I am an indoor cat
I am happy about that.
I don’t have to worry about getting hit by a truck
that would really suck.
I won’t get stuck up in a tree
or get stung by a bee.
I wish you all would all stay in the house
even if it means not catching a mouse.

One of our blogging friends, Curious as a Cathy, let us know about a fun hop on Wandering Through the Shelves. Each week you name 3 movies that go with the theme. Mom used to watch a lot of movies, not as many lately though, but she thought this would be fun. The theme this week is genius/prodigy.Here are our choices:

  1. A Beautiful Mind (2001) : Russell Crowe as brilliant mathematician John Nash who also suffers from severe mental illness.
  2. The Theory of Everything ( 2014): Movie about the life of the famous physicist Stephen Hawking.
  3. Snowden (2016): Movie about Edward Snowden and how he revealed NSA’s illegal surveillance techniques. Not sure if he is considered a genius, but after seeing the film and knowing how well he could program computers, he is a genius in my book.

And now what you have been waiting to know- the winner of the first water activated fish is: Friends Forever! Congratulations to Allie, Ellie and Raz. I will have another giveaway soon for the other one and I am begging my Mom to order more being that they are so popular.
