Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone!  We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop Joanie and Sammy are thankful for all the birthday wishes yesterday. Joanie is thankful that The Nanny watched Gremmie and Alf for her all day. Sammy is thankful he aced his first test of the new school year at Cat Scouts University.


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


A moment on the lips

a lifetime on the hips. 

I don’t really care
and I have no plans to share. 
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. You will never find _______________ in my home.
2. Once a year, I __________________.
3. _________ has gotten me in trouble.
4. The last time I _________ was when _________.


  1. Shhh…don’t tell The Hubby, but there is a chocolatier in town that makes the most wonderful delights! Sometimes, while I’m out and about, I’ll stop and find a little sweet (usually peanut butter and chocolate!), and enjoy a few minutes of bliss.

  2. MOL mom loves The Nanny! Glad she’s taking over some watching duties! Those deserts looks yummy but your poem is even better! Have a wonderful Thankful Thursday!

  3. The Human says she’ll take one of each, please.

    Which might explain why she looks like she does.

  4. That poem, is funny, and also true, but yes, temptation always seems to win that battle…ask me how I know, MOL!

    I had no idea there was a Nanny Doll! How cool is that! I loved watching her shows, but lately I don’t seem to watch much TV at all…and concats to Sammy for his good test at Cat Scouts.

    1. Thank you. And Sammy thanks you too. My niece and I loved the show and each had a doll. 🙂

  5. The food really does look to good to worry about the extra pounds it brings!

  6. HAHAHA! Perfect poem for the photo prompt this week…………but my Mom says she doesn’t care about consequences of having a luscious dessert once in a while – GO FOR IT she says!! Thanks for playing poetry with us!

    Hugs, Teddy

  7. Thinking of answers for the fill-ins. They will be boring though. 🙂 I’m not too good at these.

  8. I’m glad Joanie and Sammy had great birthdays yesterday.

    Love your poem. It’s so true too.

    We’re going on a cruise starting today so I won’t be around much for the next two Fridays.

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

  9. Those are purrfect thankfuls and such a yummy little poem! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  10. Great poem! I do love sweet treats but I really hate the ill effects of eating such things. I got your fillins! I’ll see ya tomorrow, my dear!

  11. Oh Ellen your poem is hilarious!!
    I am like that with Chocolate but not baked goods (I know I am WEIRD!)
    Joanie & Sammy look wonderful…you’ve given them a wonderful life….all kitties should be so lucky to come live with you!!!
    ((hugs)) Sherri-Ellen & **purrss** BellaDharma too!
