Happy Tocktober!

Hi everyone! Today is the day we celebrate Tocktober in memory of Ducky, but first, a special poem to my friend Sammy ( not my brother).

My Friend Sam
This is a poem for my Sam,
he can be a real ham,
but bacon is the meat he likes best
and on his porch he likes to rest.
He is a high ranking Scout,
you will never see him pout.
Every Tuesday his teaser stumps me,
his cheerleader Suzie is something to see.
Sammy we all love you
that I know is true!


Here are some tocks for you- Joanie and Sammy:

I haven’t seen Grammie all week, but she is coming today! I love her so very, very much!

Mom asked me to give you the fill-ins for tomorrow, she came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. One Halloween, I dressed as _________________________.
2. My favorite comedian is ________________________________.
3. My scariest Halloween was                                 .

4.                         is my favourite Halloween treat.


Drat! That carrier is out again, someone is going to the vet. I don’t think it is for me, but I am going to go hide just in case.


PS: #JHC’s word today is fog, but we decided to go with TOCK!



  1. Oh my! You did your “S” poem about ME?? Thank you very much – I do love it and you’re right – bacon, porches, Scouts, Suzie and ALL my wonderful friends – that’s what keeps me going! Thanks for the poem and for joining in on poetic Thursdays. Also Happy Tock-Tober!! I wonder who has to go to the vet…….EEEEK! RUN!!!!

    Love, Sam

    1. I am so glad you liked the poem Sammy, you are such a great guy. XO and love to you and your Mom

  2. You sure are quite the poet! And those are some adorable tocks! You haven’t seen your grammie all week, Phoebe?!? You must be going through withdrawals. I’m glad you’ll be seeing her today. And I am looking so forward to these Halloween fill-ins for tomorrow!

  3. I love your poem about Sammy. We hope you enjoy your day with Grammie and that whomever must go to the vet is okay.
    ps – I didn’t see you ANYWHERE in that photo Phoebe!

  4. That is a nice poem.

    I hope that whoever the carrier is for will be okay! Maybe Grammie will get there in time to make sure it isn’t you. 🙂 I think that you picked a very good hiding place.

    Have a blessed day.
