Thankful Thursday

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

I am thankful Millie and Prancie made it to 2020. Here is Millie snoozing with his collection of stuffies. About 12 years ago, my niece was getting rid of a bunch of stuffed animals and Millie managed to pull the little white dog and her 2 puppies out of the bag so she let him keep them. They have all been his “babies” since then.

We are also joining  Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt provided by Pam.

Wait til the girl next door sees me
riding my bike wild and free.
I just know someday we will wed
just don’t tell her I sometimes wet the bed.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. My plans for the weekend include ___________________________.

2. You will never find ______________________ in my home.

3. I hope I always _________.
4. I hope I never _________.



  1. The photo of Millie is precious. Guess she knew what she wanted when she selected those stuffies all those years ago. That is the cutest poem! Happy Mew Year! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  3. I am happy for you that Millie and Prancie were able to be with you into the New Year. That is sweet the way Millie chose his favourite stuffies.
    I love your poems. They usually have that twist at the end that makes me laugh.

  4. Love the photo of dear Millie with his babies……we’re happy Prancie and Millie brought in the new year. We send them POTP every day. Your poem is TOO CUTE for words!!!!! Well done!!!

    Love, Pam

  5. Ellen,

    Happy New Year to you, the hubby, and your furbabies! I can’t believe we’re entering a new decade let along a new year, can you? Here’s hoping all good things – health, happiness, and never wanting will find you each day in 2020. May God bless you always, my friend!

    Tomorrow is DH’s off-Friday, so I will be away from Blogosphere but here are my responses to your fill-ins:

    1. My plans for the weekend include _to relax, mainly because the forecast is calling for rain. I really need it after a busy weekend_.
    2. You will never find _liquor_ in my home.
    3. I hope I always _stay naive about somethings_.
    4. I hope I never _loss my mobility or memory. That’s a fear many have especially when we see those golden years getting closer and closer with each passing year_.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I am glad you will get to relax this weekend. Have a good time with DH. Happy New Year! XO

  7. 1. My plans for the weekend include cleaning the house.

    2. You will never find stuff piled on and horizontal surface in my home. (it’s all behind doors!)

  11. Your Poetry Days always make me smile….and giggle! Thank you for that! 🙂 I’m thankful Cabo seems to be okay going into 2020 and Bridget is still hanging in there as well. AND…that Entrepreneur is also still doing well despite his cancer. I wish you and yours nothing but the best for 2020 and beyond. xoxo

    1. Thank you 🙂 I am glad I make you giggle. Ans I am glad The Entrepreneur , Bridget and Cabo are doing well. XO

  12. What a sweet picture of Millie and his “babies.” Glad he and Prancie were able to join you in the New Year. Purrs.

  13. Awww, that’s precious that Millie has his favorite stuffies.

    The little guy need not worry, by the time he is grown up enough to marry all will be well.

  14. The poem made me lol! That is great, very creative.

    I love the picture of Millie and his babies- that’s precious.

  15. BOL – we loved your poem. We don’t do so well with stuffies. We really love them to death:) – Destuffing is our specialty.

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  16. We here are all thankful we made it to another year. And in relatively good health (Iza is on some medications recently). TBT is in good health (and that matters to US a lot. But also that his Bein family dint lose annyone last year. Even the old uncle (95) could write a note in the holiday card his daughter sent.

  17. We are sending all of our purrs, woofs, and prayers to Millie and Prancie! Millie, your sure snagged some cute goodies with those puppy stuffies. And I always look forward to your poems, because they never fail to make me smile and laugh. Warm wishes!

  18. We love the picture of Millie with her babies and we hope that she and Prancie will stay for a much longer time with you. Healing Pawkisses and Purrayers continue every day for your cuties and for you too🐾😽💞
