Thankful Thursday

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

My hubby is thankful The Red Sox have their first game of the season today- me , not so much. Sammy and I are thankful for all the purrs and prayers for him and his nose bump.

Sammy has written a poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt.

I wonder what this building is for?
We could go inside if it starts to pour.
Maybe that is where a bull is sleeping,
that is a place I won’t go creeping.

And the winner of the Gary Sinise book giveaway is John of The Sound of One Hand Typing.

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. I am allergic to ____________________.
2. My taxes __________________.

3. I don’t tell many people _________.

4. When it rains, _________.



  1. That is a furry good poem! But We aren’t at all sure that building would make a good shelter if it starts to pour. It looks as if the roof might be full of holes.
    And if there really is a bull sleeping inside – Bad Idea!!!!!

  2. Time for “B-Ball” here too – our Nationals are starting things off playing the Mets today. Sammy is more brave than I am to be wearing his baseball hat!! We are hoping his nose is looking better but anxious to hear everything is alright. Well done on the poem – it looks like a sturdy little church or schoolhouse and also looks like a nice spot for a QUIET nap!

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. We have a little church like that standing on a hill, haven’t seen a bull in it yet…MOL 😀 Great poem and we keep our paws crossing for you Sammy <3 Pawkisses for a Happy Thursday???

  4. There is just something about baseball season opening up that makes me feel all happy! I still like to have the St. Louis Cards playing in the background in the Tiny Casa when I can find them on. They play Milwaukee today… still in spring training.
    You did well with that poem, Sammy. And you look adorable in your ball cap!

    1. My hubby is the same way about baseball- he counts the days to Spring training when the season is over. Sammy thanks you. XO

  5. We are very meh about the upcoming baseball season, since The Detroit Tiger’s have been dismal lately. I would have to investigate that building, but I’d run like heck if there was a bull inside!

  6. I’m thankful you and all your kitties are part of my life.

    I’m all ready for Friendly Fill-ins.

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

  7. Cute poem:) I’m happy about opening day of baseball too…first game for my Toronto Blue Jays.

  8. Sammy, you look ready to watch the game with your dad 🙂
    Love your poem. Good idea not to go into where bulls sleep!

  9. Since Mom was born and raised in Massachusetts, we hope the Red Sox do well. We also have to give a shout out for our KC Royals, although the predictions for them for this year aren’t looking too good.

    That is a very nice poem – that building looks like it would make a very nice chapel.

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  10. I love the poem! I would like to do the fill-ins too…early. Welk, Mom will.
    1. I am allergic to aspirin and ibuprofen. Found out the scary way.

    2. My taxes are done. (CPA. I’m scared of the IRS so I won’t even try).

    3. I don’t tell many people work details of my career.

    4. When it rains, I mentally hunker down till it’s over.

    1. Thank you. And thanks for your answers, I enjoyed them. We still need to do ours-well, send them to the CPA 🙂 XO

  11. Sammy, looks like you’re supporting your dad’s love of the Red Sox. I’m sorry about your nose bump. I hope everything is okay. You did a great job with your poem. It looks like an abandoned church.

  12. Great poem, Sammy. I don’t really care about Baseball, though. Happy Thursday!
    1. I am allergic to ragweed.

    2. My taxes are done.

    3. I don’t tell many people my personal stuff.
    4. When it rains, I sleep well.

  13. Much of my family are Red Sox fans, but I haven’t really followed it since I was a teenager. I do enjoy going to a game once in a while though!

  14. I used to watch baseball with my dad when I was a kid, but over time we sort of got bored with it. Now we stick to watching TV shows and movies. I’m really not a sports sort of person. Your poem, as always, is so much fun! Your twist there at the end reminded me of the children’s book called Ferdinand the Bull. My dad used to read that to me when I was a child. Purrs!

  15. Baseball! It makes the residents happy to have something to follow…but, well the Tigers we get to see, are not raoring that much…they are more like kittens of late. Sheesh.

    That is a quaint little schoolhouse I think,,,but a lot less quaint if the reported bull is stomping inside of it,MOL!
