Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful I got to see Grammie on Monday and Wednesday. And look what she brought me, I mean us. I love her so very, very much.

Pardon my winky eye, Mom makes me nervous because she is always trying to put medicine on my ear so I tend to blink when she is next to me.

Turns out, Mom is definitely feeding a cat, not a skunk. It is getting braver too, I fear our family may be growing soon. Mom doesn’t know if it is a male or female, but it does watch for her to bring food then hides until she leaves.

Here is my X poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

X is Useless
X is a useless letter
our language could be better
I want to toss the X right out
if you agree, give me a shout
x-ray will now be spelled like this
ecksray, the letter x we will not miss
Xavier can be spelled Zavier
come celebrate with caviar!

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My idea of roughing it is__________________________________.

2.I never get sick of talking about ______________________________.

3. My youth                              .

4. My “golden years”                               .


  1. Phoebe, I thought you were flirting! You look cute winking. I think Grammie is blessed that you love her so much.
    So, maybe you will get a brother named Xavier? Or maybe Mom will name him Nic. Or Pepe, after the LePew skunk? ❤

    1. Thank you 🙂 Mom is hoping it is a girl because our boys fight too much and one more would make it worse. XO

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Brian is a handsome fellow. Nice Grammies brought him some treats. Kudos for His poetry efforts. It must be ecksiting to have such a talented kitty.

  3. But X is pronounced like ks, no eh sound in front of it. That’s what i was taught in phonics class. Anyway, it’s a nice poem, and you look impish with the wink!

  4. X-cellent poetry today!!!!! Well done………I agree with you about that letter though it’s rather useless AND everything that’s spelled that way COULD be spelled differently. Wonder who we need to petition to have it removed??!

    Love, Teddy

    1. Thanks Teddy, I wonder who we do need to write to about X? XO and love to you and your mom too!

  5. Your Grammie sure does sound purrfect, Phoebe. Just look at those treats she brought you (I mean, all of you, that she brought to all of you…). And X, what a letter. I was trying to think of anyone I know with the letter X in their name, in case I could come to its defense, but I’m coming up empty-handed. So, I guess we can just nix it. Or, I guess, nicks it? Purrs!

  6. LOL! Thanks heavens it is a cat. It will be one lucky cat to land in your home, Phoebe! Maybe just toss X out for Poetry Day… but then maybe not! Happy you saw Grammie Monday and Wednesday… that was much better than who I had to see. I had to see my hair cutting person on Monday and the DENTIST on Wednesday!

    1. I am lucky to have Grammie. I guess we have to keep x for kisses, XO 🙂 Hope your dentist apt. went well.

  7. Your Grammie came to visit and brought treats too. Excellent.

    I love the poem. I’m good with no more ‘x’s.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺

    1. Thank you 🙂 I am lucky to have a good Grammie. Mom sends her best!

  8. Oh no, another abandoned kitty! Your mom is doing good work by helping him/her.

    1. Mom wants to keep the kitty and Dad says no, but either way , the kitty will get vet care and a home.

  9. Mee-you what a funny an cute poe-em Purrincess Phoebe!!! Just like you!!

  10. You are ready for a party now sweetie! Hey, like Angel Sammy mentioned, that kitty knows that X marks the food spot. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  11. We don’t think x’s are very useful either and your spelling makes more sense. We will answer your questions for tomorrow’s post! Yay! I always forget. ☺

  12. guyz…yur X poem iz grate….and itz knot X rated 😉

    N yes… pleez tell mom bringin a skunkz in ta de house mite
    poze a weeeeee problem ~~~~~

    heerz ta lotz oh eXtra treetz

    we iz off line for a few sew heerz two an X ray fish kinda week oh end ~ ♥♥

    1. Thank you 🙂 It is really a cat that is skunk colored 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  13. I’m sorry that your ear needs medicine. I hope that it will be better soon. That is a cute poem.

    The letter X is a fun letter and makes us have to think harder when it comes to things like the A to Z Challenge. 🙂 The letter C is another one that is rather useless. It either sounds like a K or an S, so why not use a K or an S? Well, except when it is paired with an H, so maybe we need it for that, but not much else.

    Thanks for the headstart on the fill-ins. 🙂

    Have a blessed day!

    1. Thank you,my ear is fine, the meds are for my thyroid, but mom gives it to me as a gel on my ear so we don’t have to fight over a pill twice a day.We hope you had a blessed day too 🙂

  14. Oh, Phoebe, we suspect that wink is for when you said Grammie’s treats were for all of US, not just YOU ! Enjoy !

  15. Wink!!! We thought also that it was cause in truth you were going to snag all the treats fur yourself:)

    You have a way kind Mom, Phoebe. How lovely she feeds the strangers around your den. Kindnesses like that will be repaid…and not with skunk perfumes.

    Phoebe, better hide those treats, we have a feeling that some may be given to your skunk wannabee.

    1. And we had a good MOL at your ‘x-cellent’ poem!
