Thankful Thursday

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

My hubby is thankful The Red Sox have their first game of the season today- me , not so much. Sammy and I are thankful for all the purrs and prayers for him and his nose bump.

Sammy has written a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt.

I wonder what this building is for?
We could go inside if it starts to pour.
Maybe that is where a bull is sleeping,
that is a place I won’t go creeping.

And the winner of the Gary Sinise book giveaway is John of The Sound of One Hand Typing.

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.

Mewsic and More

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy,Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.The theme for this week is songs that teach. I could only come up with one, Billy Joel’s We  Didn’t Start the Fire (1989). I remember when I was a tutor that one of the History teachers had the students memorize the song. It covers 100 events from 1949-1989.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww..Mondays.Joanie is investigating the crocheted vases I made for pussy willows.

One more thing- the winner of our giveaway in one of our loyal readers-Cindyann. She wrote 2 great poems ( one for each giveaway) in the comments which did not affect her chances, but they were a lot of fun. Thank you to all who entered. We will have another giveaway soon.

Although I think Emmy looks cute in the hat
I’ve really got my eye on the mat
I do think she’s an adorable cat
I don’t know what my cats would think about that
I like the mat the mat is cute
I do like the character Groot
this is my attempt to rhyme
now you know why i don’t do it all the time

Another chance at a Dr Seuss Mat
I really must be a lucky cat (cats??)
I am so happy I got out of bed
to see the photos of Mr & Mrs Potato Head

You may roll your eyes at my rhyme
but I’ll cross my fingers that I win this time

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 132

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate.

1. Black Friday _________________________________.
2. A pet peeve of mine at this time of year is ___________________________.
3. ‘Tis the season for _________.
4. I never jumped on the _________ bandwagon.

My answers:

  1. Black Friday I will be out shopping with my mom. We go out about 7 AM, the crowds are gone by then.
  2. A pet peeve of mine this time of year is receiving Christmas cards that people don’t sign with love. We get cards from relatives that don’t sign love, just their names, no note. I figure if you are going to spend 50 cents on a stamp at least write a little note and spread the love. I drive my hubby crazy getting so mad about that, I even use HBO words sometimes.
  3. ‘Tis the season for Christmas music. I am breaking my cds out today.
  4. I never jumped on the cell phone bandwagon. I have a cheap cell phone that I use to call my hubby when I am off with my mom, but that is all.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
And the winner of our Thanksgiving giveaway is Daisy Mae of Crystal and Daisy Mae’s Photo Blogging Site.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.

  First, I have a question. Who told Joanie to have Gremmie guard her tent?

I am thankful that we have a lot of warm and soft places to snooze so I don’t need the tent.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We were asked to write a poem based on this photo.


Angry waves surround

I have a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. This week was a toughie, we had to come up with a poem to go with this photo.

Santa needs some help
foggy weather has arrived
Rudolph’s time to shine

That’s the best I could do.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am happy to report that mom has been doing lots of stupid things that I can write about.

She forgot to put the cranberry sauce out on Thanksgiving Day. Good thing there were cranberries in the cornbread stuffing.

Dad was making tea and asked mom to add hot water to the cups to warm them up, but when he went to make the tea, she had added cold water.

Emmy has a something to say too.

I now know why Phoebe had these earmuffs. This mom lady sings Christmas songs. Although, I don’t think what she does could be called singing, she sounds like a wounded cow.

And the winner of the Black Cats Tell All book is Laila and Minchie!

The rafflecopter for the other book ends tomorrow ( the author is in charge of that one because mom is too stupid, I mean challenged to work rafflecopter.) We will be having a few more giveaways soon.
