Thankful Thursday

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

Emmy is thankful her book has the same illustrator as Prancie’s Prayer. Here she is reviewing some of the illustrations.

And I am thankful her blood work was good and Prancie’s was too.

Living on the water is not for me,
I would rather live in a tree.
I don’t like to be wet,
staying on land is a safer bet.

Thank you to all who gave their input yesterday on my A-Z choices. Almost everyone chose money saving tips for cats so that is what I will do. Is anyone else doing the A-Z Challenge in April?

talking is for the birds.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt.

Think it through though

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

  Brody is thankful to everyone who wished him a Happy Gotcha Day yesterday.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt:

In Sunday School we are taught gambling is a sin
so many rules, it makes one’s head spin.
I am a little confused though,
why do so many churches host Bingo?

 

My poem is meant to be funny. I have nothing against Bingo even though I have never played. Actually, I have played the Bingo at baby showers where you fill in the spots with gifts you think the mom will open.

You reap what you sow,
if it is grass, you’ll have to mow.
Wait until after the last freeze
to plant your peas.
And if you want your greens,
plant spinach and beans.
now the most important we must address
it to be sure to plant seeds of kindness.

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

We are thankful for all of you who read our blog. Prancie’s Dad is thankful for the card Prancie made him. Well, I helped, but she shredded all the paper herself.

I am skipping the poetry this week because the photo prompt made me think of Heaven and reuniting with loved ones. Tallulah’s death is too recent so I couldn’t bring myself to explore those feelings.

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I want to thank you all for the comforting words and prayers you left for me for the loss of Tallulah. Thank you to all who featured her on your blogs too. I also want to thank Ann of Zoolatry for the beautiful graphic.

And thanks for Pipo’s Mom for the 2 wonderful cards she made.

And to The Kitties Blue’s Mom for this pretty graphic.

And to The Trout Talkin Tabbies for this sweet poem:

St Francis said, “Come little one, there is nothing more I can do for you here, don’t be afraid”.
St Francis gently picked up Tallulah and carried her into the kingdom of heaven, and when the little cat looked around, she realized everything St Francis told her on her journey was true….heaven was beautiful beyond what mere words could express.
Tallulah saw there was no pain, suffering, fear, sickness, hunger, thirst or sorrow, until she looked down and saw the family and friends she had left behind, and for a very brief moment, the little cat too, was filled with sorrow.
Then St Francis bestowed Tallulah with a set of gossamer wings and said, “Use them to return to your family, when their need is the greatest, as nothing can separate your bond of love.  Hold each other in your hearts and your memories, until you are reunited again at heaven’s door.”
And when the little cat tried on her wings, she knew nothing was impossible…… when there is….love ❤️

I apologize if I forgot anyone. Please let me know if I did. I am truly blessed to have so my caring people in my life.

And we are thankful to Teddy’s mom who comes up with the best photo prompts for Sammy’s Poetry Day . Here is my poem based on this photo:

Ice cream, chocolate and whipped cream
I must be having a dream.
What do you mean it isn’t good for me
can’t you see the bananas and strawberry?

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

 Joanie is thankful for her Gremmie. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are going to watch him today. Joanie is going for a dental and to have two little spots removed. A few years ago, she had a mast cell tumor on her face that I had removed. These look similar so I want them off too. If you could spare a prayer and some purrs it would be greatly appreciated.

And we are thankful to Teddy’s mom who comes up with the best photo prompts for Sammy’s Poetry Day .

Years ago woman went here once a week,
a little gossip they would seek.
A place to get away
while the kids went out to play.
Hair styled like a beehive,
this was before the invention of a hard drive.
Then lots of hairspray so it would hold,
it was a sight to behold.
That made the look complete,
but it is why the ozone is deplete.
This photo reminded me of my Mom’s beehive hairstyle in the 1970’s. I loved it- I could spot her anywhere. She actually still goes to the hairdresser weekly, but not for a beehive.  🙂 I always tease her about hairspray depleting the ozone, although the kind they make now is completely useless so I doubt it is doing environmental harm.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. ____________________ and ______________ go hand in hand.
 
2. _____________________ makes my heart happy.
 
3. Don’t be afraid to _________.
4. If _________ was a sport, I would win hands down.

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

I am thankful for all these free magazines I got from the local library. Every January, they give away the previous year’s magazines. Once I look through them, I will pass them along to others.

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt. :

This suit makes me hot and clammy,
kind of like August in Miami.
I can barely breathe when wearing the head,
putting it on in the morning is something I dread.
Right now jobs are hard to find,
I am in a bit of a financial bind.
I can’t believe I went to college for this
I guess it is better than performing a bris.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. Better to be ____________ than ___________________-.
 
2. Don’t _______________ just because ________________.
3. You couldn’t pay me to _________.
4. _________ is my comfort food.
