Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.I am thankful that Millie’s kidney values were fine. He does have a mast cell tumor that has ulcerated and his thyroid meds need an increase, but I am thankful about the kidneys. I am hoping his recent weight loss is from his thyroid.

Indians were here long before us
pushed aside with a big fuss.

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

A little over a week ago I got a wonderful surprise package in the mail. It certainly brightened my day. Back at the beginning of the year, Bionic Basil’s B-Team decided to send surprise packages to the first 10 people that commented on the post. Thank you for spreading joy. I will try to do the same and pay it forward.

Prancie LOVES the mat and doesn’t feel the need to share. Once in a while, Joanie nabs a corner of it.

And they sent an authentic Kraken tentacle. Trouble and Brody have been battling it constantly. The B-team may want to hire them to help battle the Kraken.

I also want to thank Vicky and Carole for the beautiful sympathy cards. And thank you to all who prayed, purred, and sent sympathies for Noel.It is never easy to lose a beloved cat, but knowing others care makes it easier.

I think you are the prettiest girl in school
marry me or I will jump into a pool.
Silly boy, I can’t marry you
my heart belongs to my daddy and that is true.
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. October is the perfect month for __________________.
 

2. The most recent purchase I made online was __________________.

3. If I turned invisible for a 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

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. I am still taking a break, but I wanted to join Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Noel is hanging in there ( knock on wood, 3 times). I  have no idea how long she will be with us. She amazes me. She is so frail, but eats most of the time and moves around quite a bit. I thought we were going to have to help her to The Bridge this week, I am glad that hasn’t happened yet. I still plan to keep spending a lot of time with her. I am thankful that I can be home most of the time with no other commitments.

I also wanted to join  Sammy’s Poetry Day.  Pam was so sweet to use a photo I offered her of an odd vehicle that used to go by my house. I thought it would make a fun poetry prompt. It is actually called a velomobile. Click here to learn more.

Every day when I went to get my mail
this rode by without fail.
I was surprised to find out it is a bike
nothing you would drive on the turnpike
You can buy a kit to make it yourself
but to fit inside you need to be the size of an elf
Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs,my co-host has kindly offered to come up with all 4 fill-ins for Friday and host it herself this week so be sure to visit her blog to get the statements.
I am hoping to visit blogs, but I will be sporadic for now. Thank you all for your kind comments, purrs and prayers on Monday’s post.

Thankful Thursday

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that The Great One enjoyed her first day of preschool. She is almost four and will go 3 days a week. I am also thankful I got to go over and take her first day photo. I took my niece’s ( her mother) first day photo from preschool -college and I hope to do the same for her and her little sister.

Here’s a Flashback Photo  of my Angel from September 2014 on Meow Like a Pirate Day. We are looking forward to that on the 19th and will be having a giveaway.

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

The man in the van thought he would give her a ride
maybe she was a runaway bride.
Then he realized it was a bluff
no one could carry all that stuff.
If he stopped and said get in
out would jump the rest of her kin.
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.

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.
