Thankful Thursday

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

Rosie is thankful that I found a little potty for her gremlin at the dollar store.

I am thankful that my family gathered here for Joanie and Sammy’s birthday party.  It was a lot of fun.

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

Why must some take risks to feel alive

from mountain climbing to a sky dive
I require none of that
all I need is a purr from a cat.
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 wish I could train _________________ to ____________________.
2. I am planning to get ________________ for ___________________.
3. I know it’s time to _________ when _________.
4. I felt brave when I _________.


  1. That poem is great – and we feel like that too! Joanie and Sammy had quite a party didn’t they……and it’s a relief to know that albino Gremmie has his very own toilet. Much more civilized!

    Hugs, Teddy

  2. That wing walking thing was a fad back then I have read. Seems like it was women more than men. Just a thought. Now finding that potty beat all! I never dreamed such a thing could be found, never mind at the dollar store!

  3. I’m so glad you all got together. 🙂 And hurray for a proper toilet! I can’t imagine living without indoor plumbing. :O

    I like your poem and look forward to the fill-ins. ~hugs~ Be well!

  4. That cute potty made us all laugh. It looks like Sammy and Joanie had a wonderful time and we really enjoy seeing them having fun. Have a wonderful day friends

  5. I love the potty and a birthday party is always fun. Love the poem. I’ll take the cats too.

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

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

  7. There, i knew there was a small size potty available somewhere.

    It looks like you had a lovely party.

    No such daredevil tricks for me, either, i’m at the age where a fall is not a good thing.

    Thanks for the fill-ins!

  8. MOL..that’s a nice pottie for the gremlin, I have to find one for myself…MOL…Glad you had a great Birthday, Sammy and Joanie with great company💗Extra Pawkisses for all of you🐾😽💞

  9. I am very grateful that I am not a daredevil or married to one. Neither is ELza, she is actually a bit of a scaridy cat. Suits me just fine!

    Seems like a lovely party! Hope you guys and paws will have a wonderful weekend.

  10. I went up in a Cesna with a co-worker for a significant birthday, and I was terrified the entire time!
    Sure, I can check that adventure off my list, but I think I’ll just stick to visiting special locales on EARTH for my thrills from now on,
    Well, and read more books!
