Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Penny is thankful that Grammie gave her a bag of Temptations just for her, no sharing required. Penny is always very sweet to Grammie and she is good with The Great One too.


We are joining  poetry day named after Teddy’s angel brother Sammy ‘s Poetry Day. Here is the photo prompt provided:

These boots weren’t made for walking.
If I wore them, I’d be balking.

Whoever designed them wasn’t very clever

you won’t see me in these ever.

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. The linky stays open until Wednesday night.

1. I used to love playing __________________ as a child.

2.When it ____________I _______________.
3. _________ was the moment I realized _________.
4. _________ is a simple pleasure that I really enjoy.


  1. Good for you sweet Penny, enjoy! Those shoes sure don’t look very comfortable. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. That was nice of Grammie to gift Penny with Temptations! Penny’s a sweet kitty, hope she enjoys her treats . Love your poetry, ha, I agree so much, those shoes aren’t good for feet! XO

  3. I get my own bag of treats too – well, I am the only cat here, so that would make sense! My human actually loves those shoes.

  4. Penny, you are such a sweetie! Do you get dressed up by The Great One, too??

    Your poem is making my feet hurt right now…LOL!
    (I don’t even think I could ft into such narrow shoes, I mostly wear European made/sized shoes with ‘footbed’ insoles…or similar sandals….no heels ever, else I would be in a wheelchair…from too many falls.)

  5. HAHAHAHA………great poem! My Mom said the same thing – she saw these and said “OUCH!!”……I’m told there was a button hook that handled all those buttons but who cares – they still look like medieval torture devices!

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

  6. I didn’t know Penny was good with The Great One! I am glad she enjoys The Great One’s visits, too. Grammie is a sweetheart to give Penny all her very own Temptations. It’s nice to see you Penny!
    I agree with your words for the shoes!

    1. Yes, she is. She can’t dress her up like she does Joanie, but she can pet her. Grammie is sweet. XO

  7. It’s good to have your very own treats and you don’t have to share them with anyone. Good for you.

    Love the poem. I’d hate to have to wear those shoes too.

    Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins. I’m all ready for tomorrow.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Ellen. Scritches all around. xoxo ♥

  8. I’m not sure my comments are taking, they never show up. I’m glad you got some treats for just you! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

    1. They go through. A lot of people have written they don’t see them right away- I wish I knew how to fix it. XO

  9. We wonder if there is a dog equivalent of Temptations:)

    Mom says she would never wear those boots either – she is all about comfort:)

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  10. That is a wonderful thing for a Thankful Penny! Congrats but we think you earn every one.
    Ha Ha Ha Love your Poem! Oh me oh my you are the funniest!

  11. What a nice gift from Grammie!

    Your poem is spot on.

    Thanks for the fun fill-ins, i am trying to figure out how to answer them.

  12. How wonderful Penny got her own not-for-sharing pouch of Temptations. She must be a special girl. We’re right there with you on the walking in them boots thing, too!

  13. I think those shoes look rather comfortable. They look antique/vintage, too, which is cool. 🙂 It’s hard to believe I used to dance for hours in three inch stiletto heels. Oh, to be young again. Heh…

  14. Those shoes look cool, but I wouldn’t wear them either. I doubt they are very comfortable and these days comfort is my #1 priority! 🙂

  15. Nice treats for the kitty!
    Oh those shoes! I wouldn’t wear them either, but I like your little poem. 🙂
