Dr. Seuss Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Brody wants to thank everyone for the Gotcha Day wishes. He is here to announce the winner of the Dr. Seuss giveaway.

  Congratulations to A Wizard and Angel!

Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that we got to see Grammie Wednesday and she will be back today too. I love her so very much!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day,  featuring the letter L.

Lips are to give a kiss
mine make me want to hiss.
Stupid rodent ulcer ,
I’m not even a mouser.
I wish it would go away
and not come back another day.

Yup, I have that rodent ulcer again. It is the same one which never healed all the way and when I got off the prednisone, it came right back. Now I have a liquid medicine called Atopica, it is for allergies. I need it daily for a month and then we will cut back. Mom was glad that I gained 6 ounces because she thought I was too thin before. The worst part of going to the vet was that Millie had to go for a thyroid checkup and he doesn’t travel well. He always poops- it was not a fun ride, good thing it wasn’t too cold because Mom had to open a window.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks. This week is “On the Run”. Here are her choices:

  1. The Fugitive ( 1993)- I think this is Harrison Ford’s best film, he plays a Dr. accused of murdering his wife. He goes on the run to find the one-armed man who did it.
  2. Splash ( 1984)- Tom Hanks falls in love with a mermaid ( Daryl Hannah) and they are on the run because scientists want to capture her to study her.
  3. Double Jeopardy ( 1999)- One of my favorite movies, Ashley Judd’s husband fakes his murder and she goes to jail for it. Once released, she is determined to find her son and prove her innocence.

And last, but not least are the fill-ins, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. Please pray for their sweet Maggie as she is going to be having exploratory surgery soon.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Festivus is tomorrow and I want to thank all of you that sent photos, I will have them on display tomorrow with links to your blogs.You can all list your grievances in tomorrow’s comments. I have one that can’t wait though. Mom took me to the vet on Tuesday morning when it was -1 degrees! That sore on my lip was not getting better, it is a rodent ulcer- and no, it is not from eating rodents, I am not lucky enough to get to eat them. Here is a link to an article about them. I am on prednisone and had an antibiotic shot. Poor me.

I did get to see my Grammie Wednesday and I will see her a lot on Friday, Saturday and Sunday- yippee! I love her so very much. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop– I am thankful for my Grammie and I guess for a Mom who tries to keep me healthy ( even though she could have chosen a warmer day to go to the vet). I am also thankful for my friend Nellie, look what she made me


And today is Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter B. I am almost positive no one will have the same subject as I chose.

Barszcz is a Polish broth
it is clear so it won’t stain a tablecloth.
You add kielbasa,potatoes and eggs
sorry, no chicken legs.
Barszcz is also Grammie’s maiden name
isn’t that funny, they are the same?


It is an acquired taste, I like to sneak a little of my Mom’s. Tomorrow is the big Festivus party, but it is also Friendly Fill-in Day so here are the fill-ins:

1. I still need to _____________________ before Christmas.
2. My favorite episode of Seinfeld is ___________________.

3. What I really would like for Christmas is                                      .

4.  My favourite part of Christmastime is                                    .
