Thankful Thursday

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

  Brody is thankful to everyone who wished him a Happy Gotcha Day yesterday.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt:

In Sunday School we are taught gambling is a sin
so many rules, it makes one’s head spin.
I am a little confused though,
why do so many churches host Bingo?


My poem is meant to be funny. I have nothing against Bingo even though I have never played. Actually, I have played the Bingo at baby showers where you fill in the spots with gifts you think the mom will open.

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. My favorite kind of music is _____________________.

2. I don’t believe ___________________.

3. My ideal day _________.
4. Don’t let _________ stop you from _________.

  1. Furrst of all – We are sorry to be a day late but better late than never. Best Gotcha Day wishes and lots of pawpats and kitty kisses to sweet, handsome Brody.
    Secondly – Bingo. Mummy says she believes that for many humans, especially the elderly, Bingo Night at the church hall is not so much about winning, as about being their only op-purr-tunity for social contact. As somebody else remarked in the comments – more of a game than regular gambling.

  2. The residents where I work play bingo almost every day. For some it is the highlight of their sometimes monotonous day… I guess churches might host because they have the room in their social halls, MOL!

    We might be missing again tomorrow…or be furry late, so er are our answers for the fill ins.

    1. My favorite kind of music is classical, esp from the times of about 1600 – 1850 or so…..
    2. I don’t believe anything ever happens by chance, it is all part of the plans laid forth by God, He even uses the bad things to serve His purposes, though we may not think so at the time..
    3. My ideal day is staying home and doing things at home with my family and furry ones.
    4. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you from attaining your heart’s desires and goals.

    • I am sure your residents aren’t playing for cash 🙂 Thank you for these great fill-in answers. I completely agree with #2-4 🙂 XO

  3. My human doesn’t get Bingo… but then she doesn’t get football or Westerns either. And because of that, she always had difficulty trying to find things to talk about to her parents, MOL!

  4. GOOD POEM! We also never really thought about churches sponsoring Bingo but indeed they do….even if for a good cause it’s still gambling! You did a GREAT poem with a punch though for sure……….and we’re glad Brody had a good GOTCHA!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. I hope Brody had a great gotcha day.

    I love your poem and I’ve never thought about the Bingo thing. I don’t play either.

    I’ve all ready for tomorrows Friendly Fill-ins.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. My best to all the kitties. ♥

  6. Brody, you look good enough to be on Sunday Selfies…. And Sammy, I agree with you about the hypocrisy…. it seems to have invaded far too many aspects of life.

  7. You make a very good point!!! Mom used to take her Mom to Bingo often, but she says you have to go just for the social fun and not expect to get rich:)

  8. I never thought about bingo as gambling but you are right, it is. I have always got a kick out of playing bingo (must be my Catholic upbringing) but haven’t played for a long time. We have bingo here where we live one Wednesday out of the month and I hope to get to play soon. Good Morning! Our last day with workers in the house… fingers crossed!

  9. Your poem is so funny, and so true! I’m Catholic, and my church hosts a bingo night once a month. There are indeed cash prizes. At the same time, though, all proceeds from the purchases of the bingo cards go directly to the church. Bingo nights have actually gotten very popular at my church, and so quite a bit of money is raised for the church on those nights. Sometimes my mom and I go, because we have always loved bingo. We’ve even won a time or two!

  10. OMC Broday, we’re sorry we’re late. Happy Gotchday gawjus. We’re so glad to be your furiends. And we’re really glad that awnty Ellen got ya’. 🙂 Big hugs

    Luv ya’
