Thankful Thursday

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

 Joanie is thankful for her Gremmie. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are going to watch him today. Joanie is going for a dental and to have two little spots removed. A few years ago, she had a mast cell tumor on her face that I had removed. These look similar so I want them off too. If you could spare a prayer and some purrs it would be greatly appreciated.

And we are thankful to Teddy’s mom who comes up with the best photo prompts for Sammy’s Poetry Day .

Years ago woman went here once a week,
a little gossip they would seek.
A place to get away
while the kids went out to play.
Hair styled like a beehive,
this was before the invention of a hard drive.
Then lots of hairspray so it would hold,
it was a sight to behold.
That made the look complete,
but it is why the ozone is deplete.
This photo reminded me of my Mom’s beehive hairstyle in the 1970’s. I loved it- I could spot her anywhere. She actually still goes to the hairdresser weekly, but not for a beehive.  🙂 I always tease her about hairspray depleting the ozone, although the kind they make now is completely useless so I doubt it is doing environmental harm.

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. ____________________ and ______________ go hand in hand.

4. If _________ was a sport, I would win hands down.

  1. I am sending good thoughts for Joanie’s dental.
    I remember sitting in a row under those huge dryers wondering if my head would explode from the heat. It is a wonder we had any hair left after torturing it with such heat, back combing it to within an inch of it’s life, then coating it in a hard shell of hairspray!

  2. HA! That’s a fabulous poem for the photo challenge this week. My Mom’s Mom always had “untouchable” hair after the beauty parlor visits – it was frozen in place until the next week when she’d go through it AGAIN. As for sweet Joanie – we will have her in our prayers today and hopefully her little bumps are just little “age” bumps! Sending hugs………..

    Love, Teddy

  3. That’s a lovely poem, miss Ellen?We’re going send Healing Pawkisses for you, sweet Joanie and as it seems you don’t have to worry about Gremmie?
    Thank you for being so supportive all the time. We appreciate it very much. Pawkisses for a Peaceful Day???

  4. Joanie, we hope you have an uneventful and successful surgery today. We don’t blame your mom at all for having those spots removed. We would too!

  5. Prayers and purrs for Joanie today. I’m sure she will be fine.

    Love your poem. My mom never went to a hairdresser when I was growing up. I do remember those dryers though.

    I’m all ready for Friendly Fill-ins. Great questions.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties and extra for Joanie. ♥

  6. We hope Joanie procedures go well. We know it has to be a worry.

    Great poem – Mom remembers when her Mom would sit under one of those contraptions.

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  7. We are sending many, many purrs and prayers to Joanie! She deserves lots of rest, so hopefully Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head will help keep Gremmie busy for her.

    And, as always, I adore your poem! I’ve seen old photos in which my grandma was donning a beehive hairdo. That sure was a unique look! Then again, people of the future might look at photos of people’s hair from these days and think we were something special. Warm wishes to all of you!

  8. joanie….ewe betcha N st francis’ blessing two ewe az well, we hope by now ewe iz home N chillaxin N doin soooper grate N de a point mint went aye oh kay ♥♥♥

  9. I hope Joanie’s visit to the dentist and doctor went okay and all is well, and she is back home with her Gremmie. LOL! I remember my mom having a beehive “do” as well in the 60s and 70s. So glad they have NOT come back into style!

  10. Since I’m behind and reading in reverse, I’m glad to already know that Joanie did well with her procedures. Lumps and bumps…ugh…it seems so common with pets, though we’ve had it far more with dogs than cats.
