Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone!  We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that my mom and I got to see The Great One and her little sister in their costumes for Halloween.  Trust me, they are adorable. I just don’t show photos of kids online.

I am also thankful for my sweet Sammy. He is ALWAYS with me. Well, most of the time. He isn’t allowed in the kitchen because there is a bowl of cat food in there which he would devour. When I am in the kitchen though, he goes from door to door watching me ( we have screen doors so heat and a/c can get through, but cats can’t) .




Sorry, I skipped the poem again.

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 never thought I would say this, but ______________________________.
2. I  can’t believe ________________ is _______________________.
3. _________ is how I deal with stress.
4. Now is the perfect time to _________.
And before we go, we want to give our condolences to Pipo’s family. To visit, click here. 


  1. It is nice you were able to see the Great One and her sister.
    Sammy is a sweetie pie.

  2. Glad you got to see the girls in their costumes! That Sammy – he’s a gem – there’s just something super special about “SAMMYS” isn’t there! 😉

    Hugs, Pam

  3. Sammy will always be in the corner of your eye and always deep in your heart.
    Katie Isabella

  4. I won’t pass judgment on those who do, but I respect your decision not to post photos of children. I miss reading your poem. ~grin~ What a sweet shadow you have! Be well, my dear.

  5. The screen doors are an excellent idea…everyone can see you…thus no singing the song of their people
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. Aw on Sammy. He’s a handsome mancat and it’s good he loves to follow you around.

    I’m all ready for the Friendly Fill-ins.

    Sammy was a stray, wasn’t he? He’s definitely living the life of Riley!
