Thankful Thursday

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

Joanie and Emmy are thankful for the heated throw.

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt..

Indians were here long before us
pushed aside with a big fuss.
After hundreds of years they found a way to get revenge,
Getting our money from casinos, their lost land they can finally avenge.
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. __________________ is tasty.

3. If everything goes according to plan, _________.
4. _________ is the spookiest thing I have ever experienced.

#Remember Me Thursday

Hi everyone! I know it is Wordless Wednesday, but last Thursday I missed a most important day. #Remember Me Thursday is a special day to bring attention to cats in shelters waiting for their forever homes. Many cats never leave the shelter.

Our friend Dawn, mom to Lola and Lexy is hosting the hop for #Remember Me Thursday so be sure to visit all the participants.

Joanie and Sammy were only at the shelter for a few months. It breaks my heart that they had another sibling that was adopted separately before I adopted them. They were 4 at the time so I am sure they would have liked to all stay together.

My Angel Snowball and KaTwo also came from a shelter. They were both their for 2 years before being adopted. Someday I hope to rescue another cat that has been in a shelter for years. Every cat ( and dog) deserves a forever home. All my cats have brought me great joy and continue to every day.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. I am still mostly taking a break, but I wanted to join Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Meow Like a Pirate Day! Noel is still  hanging in there ( knock on wood, 3 times). Prancie gave us quite a scare last Friday and she is still not back to her old self. She has an ultrasound Friday. Her kidneys have gotten worse since February, but not enough to have gotten her so dehydrated. We are very worried.She is such a good patient and takes the fluids well. I am thankful she is still with us too.

Joanie and Gremmie are really into Pirate Day.

Noel wanted to join in too.

  Emmy was not thrilled to pose ( as you can see by my arm). We are having a giveaway for Pirate Day. The prize is a copy of Emmy’s book and a Pirate print catnip mat. Sorry I can only afford to ship in the US. To enter just comment on this post before Sunday at 9 PM 9 EST). Winner will be announced Monday ( unless one of my kitties gets sicker).

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt.

My ship has sunk
I need to get drunk
I want to sail with the captain with the rum
Captain Morgan will make me less glum
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two. I hope to post tomorrow, depending on the kitties.
1. Never have I ever ____________________.
 
2. I won’t ________________ again.

4. _________ is my worst enemy.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 172

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. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you.

1. My favorite Peanuts character is ______________________.

 
2. I knew I was no longer a child when ____________________.
 

3. I was shocked when I learned that _________.

4. I always feel frustrated when I try to _________.
My Answers:
1. My favorite Peanuts character is Lucy. My angel Lucy would have pulled the football from Charlie Brown too.
2. I knew I was no longer a child when  -I will let you know when that happens. I still feel like a child because my hubby handles everything for me just like my parents did. I am blessed, but I am also in for a big shock someday.
3. I was shocked when I learned that  I was talking to my aunt and not Barney Rubble ( Flintstones) on the phone when I was a kid. For years I thought I was talking to Barney. I wanted him to leave Betty and come live with me- I guess I was a bit of a hussy.
4. I always feel frustrated when I try to fit into clothes in my closet. I have so many clothes, yet I have outgrown so many. Or worse, I bought them with the hope of someday fitting into them, but that hasn’t happened.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

  Last week, The Great One and I dressed Joanie as a giraffe, but it didn’t work out very well.
I am praying for all of you in the path of the hurricane. Stay safe.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am ashamed to admit that I forgot yesterday was Rainbow Bridge Memorial Day. I will be doing a post for it on Saturday. I think it is good to remember those that are no longer with us that left pawprints on our hearts.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Joanie is thankful that The Great One came to visit her again.

We also celebrated her cat, Nixon’s 13th birthday ( at her house). Nixon* lived with us for the first 5 years of his life.

My niece got him freshman year in college, but couldn’t keep him in the dorm so he lived here. And she lived here too and commuted to school after her first year of college. *Nixon was named after the Red Sox player, Trot Nixon, not the former president 🙂

And here is my poem based on Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

Having a tiger mom is not fun
all I want to do is go outside and run
but I have to practice 5 hours a day
even after school on a Friday
Seeing this little girl at the big piano made me feel sorry for her lost childhood.

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

1. My favorite Peanuts character is ______________________.
 
2. I knew I was no longer a child when ____________________.
 
3. I was shocked when I learned that _________.
4. I always feel frustrated when I try to _________.

 

Thankful Thursday

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

Joanie is happy that The Great One came over to play with her. I am happy too because she didn’t want to come over for several months. I go to her house to see her often, but she is like me in preferring to be home. Well, she finally decided she needed to come see Joanie.

We played costume shop and all these stuffies bought their Halloween costumes 🙂

Millie made a big mistake when he decided to be friendly. He got dressed as Elsa.

I was a bad girl and didn’t do my homework so I have no poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

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

1. I am a stickler for ___________________.

3. _________ is my favorite thing about myself.

I won’t go near there for any wage
well, maybe to meet Nicolas Cage
