Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful I will get to take The Great One’s first day of  school ( Kindergarten) photo today. I am thankful I was able to take her mom’s photo every first day from preschool to college. I don’t have many online, but I  found September 2009, her last year of college when she was commuting.

And Sammy and Joanie are happy it is their birthday month . Their birthday is September 30th and they will have a big sweet 16 party.

We are joining the poetry day named after Teddy’s angel brother Sammy ‘s Poetry Day. Here is the photo prompt provided:

I’m on my way to play bagpipes in a show. 
I was not expecting the wind to blow. 
Good thing under my kilt my briefs I wore
or you would be seeing a whole lot more. 
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.
