Poetry and More

Hi everyone! Today is Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter L and my Mom has written a special poem, but first I want to clear something up. Some of you asked if Brody had a selfie on Monday. He did and I purposely, accidentally omitted him. So for all you fans of the suck up, Brody here is his selfie.


Grammie was here on Wednesday, I love her so very much. And she brought me us another pound of Party Mix.


Here is Mom’s poem about Lucy:

You loved to hiss
the litter box you’d often miss.
You were always on my lap
or on the bed we’d take a nap.
You always had lots of splainin to do,
you would have moved the football on Charlie Brown too.
My life is no longer the same,
I miss calling your name.
We had to say goodbye last Fall,
Lucy, I miss you most of all.

Over the Rainbow Bridge, Lucy

I can’t believe it has been almost a year since Lucy went to The Rainbow Bridge.

Mom is joining a new challenge for September hosted by P.S.Annie and McClendon Villa

It is called 19-Somethin’ . The first question is :What movie could you, or did you see over and over again when you were a teenager? My Mom reminded me that when I was 13, I couldn’t stop watching Annie. When I was older, Dirty Dancing was watched countless times. And of course, Peggy Sue Got Married, my all time favorite movie and when I first fell in love with Nicolas Cage.

Mom also wants me to give you the fill-ins for tomorrow, she came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. My favorite way to exercise is ____________________________.
2. Something I learned last week was ____________________________________.
3. I am sentimental about                                   .

4. Some people may find it surprising to know___________________________.

I am starting a giveaway Sunday !






  1. Aww…it is always nice to see Brody. And, a sweet treat to read Lucy’s tribute. Nice.❤ I have been missing my Purrl, gone for 8 years this Summer. I miss her still.

    I chuckle over your Cage crush. Did you ever meet him?

    1. Thank you. We never forget those we love, they are always in our hearts. XO
      No, I have never met Nic, it is the only thing on my bucket list.

  2. What do you do with all this Party Mix your Grammie gives you?!?! She’s spoiling all of you! Brody can’t be THAT bad, Phoebe … have you given him a chance? At the very least, he’s adorable. Wonderful poem about Lucy … it brought a tear (or ten) to my eye.

    1. I have to share the party mix with everyone-phooey! Mom is sorry she brought a tear to your eye.

  3. It sounds like you have a very sweet Grammie, Phoebe. I’m glad you got to see her again and that she brought you a present. 🙂

    Awww what a sweet tribute to Lucy. I’m sorry that you lost her. 🙁

    Thanks for the Friendly Fill-Ins, Ellen! Also, thank you for joining our 19-Somethin’ Challenge. Please be sure to add your blog link on the challenge page linky. I liked the Dirty Dancing movie way back when, too. I think it would just be too sad to watch it now. I think that I’ve seen Annie once, but I have never seen the Peggy Sue movie.

    Have a blessed day!

  4. Oh what a SWEET poem about dear Lucy – I can’t believe it’s been a year already but I know you feel her with you every single day. Thanks for writing a poem for “L” – I kind of thought it would be Lucy!!!! Next week is “M”…….hmmm….that might be an EASY one!

    Love, Pam (and Sam)

  5. Oh, what a lovely post. Phoebe, I still hold out hope for you and Brody becoming best of friends. Do you think you’ll share some of that Party Mix with him?

    Your poem for Lucy is so very sweet. She sure was a special cat, Ellen. Today would have been my angel Rosie’s 23rd birthday. I’ve told myself that I will always strive to remember the good times with Rosie rather than focus on my sadness over losing her, which is why we’re having a bit of a birthday party over at our blog today. I know you have many, many happy memories with your Lucy. She will always be with you, in those memories and in spirit!

    Purrs to all of you! We will be seeing you tomorrow for the fill-ins, which we always look so forward to!

    1. Your party for Angel Rosie was very sweet. It is best to remember the good times. Thank you for always participating in the fill-ins, you always have great answers.

  6. Oh dear sweet Lucy. Mommy’s eyes were leaking when she read your poem. Big kitty hugs to your Mom.
    Angel Normie, Angel Mika, Sasha & Grady Lewis

  7. I love that poem. Reminds me of our Little Bit that would make messes, but we would sure love to have the opportunity to clean up one of her messes now. We miss her so much too.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

    1. Thank you. I never got mad at Lucy when she peed on the floor because i knew I would miss her. XO

  8. guys…..yur mom rited a total lee awesum poem for lucy ~~~~~~ we noe her saw it …N her loves it….. as much az her loves ewe all ♥♥♥♥♥

  9. A lovely tribute to a lovely cat, even if she did hiss sometimes (they all have their moments, as you know).

  10. I’m glad you came clean about Brody. It’s not nice to be too mean! (A little mean is okay if it puts him in is place!) We love the poem about Lucy. I know your mom misses her very, very much.

  11. The poem about Lucy was so touching and beautiful. Mom is going to write about our angel Madison for next week. That new challenge sounds like fun. We’ve got to figure out our completion for the fill-ins. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  12. When TW was young, they didn’t have moving pictures yet. MOL! She’s never been a big movie fan.

    1. My favorite way to exercise is running crazypants through the condo.
    2. Something I learned last week was the peeps deliberately order Chinese food I can’t eat.
    3. I am sentimental about my blue pillow at Spitty’s that he keeps letting other lady cats lay on. .
    4. Some people may find it surprising to know I really like getting kissed on the top of the head.

    1. Thank you for your answers. That is not right that Spitty is letting other kitties use your pillow. I am surprised to know you like kisses on the top of your head- that is sweet 🙂

  13. What a sweet tribute/poem for the dearly cherished Lucy.

    Brody seems to have endeared himself to all but one pawrticular kitty…namely Phoebe,MOL! Come on, Phoebe you gotta let him friend you, he is a sweetie!

    The petcretary has not seen any of those movies…but she has heard of all of them, MOL! She is not really a fan of movies…goes to less than one or two a year, even lees on the TV or renting them…like nevfur, OMC!!

    1. Thank you, I am glad you liked my lucy poem.
      Phoebe just doesn’t like him, poor guy.
      We rarely go to the movies, I used to get a lot from Netflix, but now I am very cheap and get them from the library.
