Thankful Thursday

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.

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

Brody is thankful for the purrs and prayers. He is still sneezy, but doing better.

Some of you guessed correctly when you said Mr. Potato Head shaved. Those of  you that couldn’t see a difference were also correct too  because I posted the same photo last week. I meant to post the top one-oops!

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

Look at me, I may be small
I am on skates, but didn’t fall
I bet I could even do karate,
now if  I could only master the potty.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.I am thankful that many loved ones joined us Christmas Eve. I am also thankful that I got to spend Christmas Day with my mom and hubby -and kitties.

My kitties have lots of thankfuls today. Millie is thankful to the manly collar his friend Valentine sent him. It even has a bell.

Valentine also sent these yummy treats .

Our friends, Purrseidon and Katsu sent us this giant bag of toys which also included a tunnel. It arrived several weeks ago, but I was mean and made them wait.

And Four-Legged Furballs recently had a giveaway that we won. A beautiful blanket for me and a mini version for the kitties, although I the cats seem to think both are theirs. Lorianne also added in this giant container of Temptations and a stocking filled with toys. And one of her adorable bookmark creations.

Gremmie got a hat from Joanie.

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

I wonder who lives in this house?
It is way too big for just one mouse.
Maybe in it lives an old sage,
one thing for sure is it doesn’t belong to Nic Cage.
Sorry, not my best work. I am still tired from the holidays.

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

Joanie is thankful that The Great One did not have her dress up in any costumes. She was too busy making these ornaments (close your eyes Grammie).


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



Crowds of people everwhere

buying clothes, toys and footwear.

Everyone wants to find a sale,

All that is good and fine,

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
I am thankful that Trouble is behaving with the Christmas tree. Everyone was interested at first, but they got bored with it quickly.
Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:
She found a message in a bottle
it was a letter signed by Aristotle.
The water looked grim,
but off to the castle she did swim.
The king was happy and rewarded her,
he sent her away with gold and myrhh.

Thankful Thursday

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

We are thankful that Moo is home. After a little rest, she will be heading out again. Also thankful that Trouble is not a tree climber. She was checking out the light cord ( it wasn’t plugged in), but Penny caught her and gave her quite a chase.

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

The street is a long way down,
we are definitely not in a town.
Why are we up here?
I want to be a sightseer.
Let’s go see Rockefeller’s  Christmas tree
then ice skate, I will try not to fall on my knee.
Then we can take a bus tour to Dyker Heights*
to see all the Christmas Lights.
In 2010, my hubby took me to NYC so we could go on the Christmas Light and Cannoli Tour. Dyker Heights is a neighborhood in Brooklyn that really knows how to decorate. I wish I knew where they bought their decorations because I have never seen any like these anywhere.
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.

I am also thankful that almost all the veggies we are having are ones my hubby grew. And I am thankful for all of you reading this. I appreciate your friendship.

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this cute photo. I let my Sammy write this one being that his poem last week was so well received.

Planting a garden can be fun

The flowers are good for the bees,

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

Sammy is thankful he lives in  a warm house so he doesn’t need to wear this coat which is a little too small for him. I am thankful that I am getting a new sewing machine for Christmas and my Mom is letting me use it early to finish a few mats I promised to people. Then I will let her wrap it 🙂

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this cute photo. I let my Sammy write this one being that his poem last week was so well received.

Sometimes we all feel small like an ant,

no need to stay confined.
One can accomplish anything,
