Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always thankful for my family and kitties, but this week I have extra thankfuls. First off, I won Mudpie’s Zoomie’s 500! I guessed that #17 would win The Daytona 500. Funny thing, I just picked 17 because my hubby usually chooses that number because it is on a Star Trek ship.

I am also thankful to Purrseidon. She has been reading children’s books on youtube and she read Prancie’s Prayer. It is the cutest video ever. Please check it out. And I highly recommend all her other videos too. Thew Great One has been enjoying them.

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

He returned to his truck after fishing at the lake,
but it wouldn’t start, poor guy couldn’t catch a break.
The cost of towing was more than the value of the truck
so he decided to leave it to rot in the muck.
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. I am trying to ___________________.

  1. Ms. Ellen, I’m ever so happy that you and The Great One are enjoying my story time. Thank you for giving me purrmission to read it on youtube.

  2. That is so cute with Purrseidon reading Prancie’s Prayer. Nice poem too.
    After my in laws had died we wanted to clear the undergrowth which had got out of hand. We found 2 cars half a truck and countless pieces of old farm machinery hidden in it! There were a lot of visits to the scrapyard!

  3. What fun, that your number won the contest. Lucky 17!

    Purrseidon’s reading is great, isn’t it. Your poem makes me feel sorry for the guy and the truck!

  4. We love Purrseidon. I’ll have to listen to the video. Way cool.

    Love the poem. Can’t catch a break indeed.

    I’m all ready for tomorrows fill-ins. Thanks for co-hosting.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  5. That was a great win over at Mudpie’s place and how very cool to see the Prancie’s Prayer video with Purrseidon. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  6. How fabulous is this video…kudos!
    My brother just discovered that if he’s on my blog, he can click to read all of the others that I have, and he said, “Hey! There’s a cat blog with Nascar too!” Oh, he hasn’t paid attention to anything…

  7. Congratulations on your winning number! And I’m happy your book is getting so much exposure. I love the poetry prompt and your response. Perfect! Hope you have a great weekend. xoxox

  8. I was so excited when I saw that you and your kitties won Melissa and Mudpie’s zoomies contest, Ellen. You all deserve it so much! And I was equally excited to see that Purrseidon read Prancie’s Prayer. I am really enjoying Purrseidon’s storytellings. I also, of course, enjoyed your poem story. It makes me wonder if this sort of situation might be how that truck did end up out there. Purrs!
