Thankful Thursday

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

  Brody is thankful to everyone who wished him a Happy Gotcha Day yesterday.

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

In Sunday School we are taught gambling is a sin
so many rules, it makes one’s head spin.
I am a little confused though,
why do so many churches host Bingo?


My poem is meant to be funny. I have nothing against Bingo even though I have never played. Actually, I have played the Bingo at baby showers where you fill in the spots with gifts you think the mom will open.

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. My favorite kind of music is _____________________.

2. I don’t believe ___________________.

3. My ideal day _________.
4. Don’t let _________ stop you from _________.



  1. Sometimes i wonder the same thing about Bingo, maybe it’s more a game where you win prizes than actual gambling. At least to those who play, it may be.

  2. Furrst of all – We are sorry to be a day late but better late than never. Best Gotcha Day wishes and lots of pawpats and kitty kisses to sweet, handsome Brody.
    Secondly – Bingo. Mummy says she believes that for many humans, especially the elderly, Bingo Night at the church hall is not so much about winning, as about being their only op-purr-tunity for social contact. As somebody else remarked in the comments – more of a game than regular gambling.

    1. Brody thanks you 🙂 That is a good point, it is good for social interaction for older folks.

  3. The residents where I work play bingo almost every day. For some it is the highlight of their sometimes monotonous day… I guess churches might host because they have the room in their social halls, MOL!

    We might be missing again tomorrow…or be furry late, so er are our answers for the fill ins.

    1. My favorite kind of music is classical, esp from the times of about 1600 – 1850 or so…..
    2. I don’t believe anything ever happens by chance, it is all part of the plans laid forth by God, He even uses the bad things to serve His purposes, though we may not think so at the time..
    3. My ideal day is staying home and doing things at home with my family and furry ones.
    4. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you from attaining your heart’s desires and goals.

    1. I am sure your residents aren’t playing for cash 🙂 Thank you for these great fill-in answers. I completely agree with #2-4 🙂 XO

  4. My human doesn’t get Bingo… but then she doesn’t get football or Westerns either. And because of that, she always had difficulty trying to find things to talk about to her parents, MOL!

  5. GOOD POEM! We also never really thought about churches sponsoring Bingo but indeed they do….even if for a good cause it’s still gambling! You did a GREAT poem with a punch though for sure……….and we’re glad Brody had a good GOTCHA!

    Hugs, Teddy

  6. That was a cute poem and a darn purrplexing question about Bingo. Howdy Brody, I’m glad you had a great Gotcha Day pal. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  7. I hope Brody had a great gotcha day.

    I love your poem and I’ve never thought about the Bingo thing. I don’t play either.

    I’ve all ready for tomorrows Friendly Fill-ins.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. My best to all the kitties. ♥

  8. LOL your poem is funny. I never thought about it that way. And Brody you are just adorable. Please give him a pet for me.

  9. Brody, you look good enough to be on Sunday Selfies…. And Sammy, I agree with you about the hypocrisy…. it seems to have invaded far too many aspects of life.

  10. guys… makez an eggz cell ant point !!! glad ya hada awesum day brody 🙂 ♥♥

  11. You make a very good point!!! Mom used to take her Mom to Bingo often, but she says you have to go just for the social fun and not expect to get rich:)

    1. That was nice of your mom to do for her mom. I am sure a lot do it for social reasons.

  12. Our Mom and Dad played Bingo at a church event once. Once. Them church ladies are a tough crowd! Who knew Bingo had so many ways to upset church people!

  13. Happy Thankful Thursday. We are very happy for Brody’s Gotcha Day. We hope it was a wonderful day of celebrating. We play bingo every year for a charity during the summer. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.

  14. I never thought about bingo as gambling but you are right, it is. I have always got a kick out of playing bingo (must be my Catholic upbringing) but haven’t played for a long time. We have bingo here where we live one Wednesday out of the month and I hope to get to play soon. Good Morning! Our last day with workers in the house… fingers crossed!

    1. I hope I didn’t offend you with the Bingo comment. I am Catholic too, my church no longer does Bingo. I am glad your workers are almost done.XO

  15. I think I’ve only played Bingo for charity type events. It makes me anxious looking for the squares as numbers are called out because I don’t want to miss anything! 🙂

  16. We thought your poem was funny! I’ve never really played Bingo, and don’t like gambling, because I always lose! LOL

  17. Your poem is so funny, and so true! I’m Catholic, and my church hosts a bingo night once a month. There are indeed cash prizes. At the same time, though, all proceeds from the purchases of the bingo cards go directly to the church. Bingo nights have actually gotten very popular at my church, and so quite a bit of money is raised for the church on those nights. Sometimes my mom and I go, because we have always loved bingo. We’ve even won a time or two!

    1. Thank you. I hope you were not offended. I am glad the funds go to a good cause.

  18. OMC Broday, we’re sorry we’re late. Happy Gotchday gawjus. We’re so glad to be your furiends. And we’re really glad that awnty Ellen got ya’. 🙂 Big hugs

    Luv ya’
