Thankful Thursday


Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am thankful to you all for the purrs and prayers for Joanie. She thanks you too. This is her feed me pose. I decided to try some Pepcid and that seems to be helping ( knock on wood, 3 times).

Typhoid Mary was very happy to get her purple furby.

We are also joining Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day.  And here is the photo prompt provided:


Santa forgot to beware of cookies when in a liberal state. *
Instead of a nibble, he ate every one on the plate.
The elves found him in a pile of gifts, passed out,
they delivered all the rest so he wouldn’t lose his clout.
*My state is liberal and legalized marijuana which irks me. And in certain company, I do ask before taking a cookie.
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.
1. I’ll be ______________ for Christmas.
2. I am eager to see ____________open his/her gift.
3. ‘Twas the night before Christmas and I _________.
4. I _________ the day after Christmas.


  1. Love your Out Cold Santa poem!! Yes we have the same problem here…and Pot shops are as common as donut/coffee shops! Sheesh!

    Good thing that T.M. was thrilled with her gift…bravo for you for finding it, too, apparently those are rare?

    POTP in huge amounts continue for Joanie.

    If I recall, Minko also got that same Pepcid. He got that in the morning, and he got Prilosec, in the evening. (The tablet, 10mg, which is half of the ordinary original pills.) Vet suggested things be given at those times, since the Prilosec works longer term than the Pepcid. I think he got 5mg of Pepcid. Sheesh it seems so long ago already, Minko became an Angel in June of 2017. He got prednisolone, too.

    1. Thank you. Same here, our small town has 3 pot shops.
      The purple furbies were hard to find, orange are everywhere.
      Thank you for the POTP. I do remember Minko needing it. XO

  2. YAY for the pepcid! I know how you feel, Joanie, but eating again will help you so much. Hang in there, beautiful Joanie. Your mama is the best doc on earth.

  3. Wonderful poem – we love it and you’re smart to ask before taking a cookie!! These days you never know what to expect. Joanie – hope your tummy is better with the Pepcid and please keep eating so you will feel better OK? OK!!!!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. Sweet Joanie, you stay on the path of recovery and eat well so that Santa will bring more gifts for you.

    1. Precious loves her silvervine. I had just bought a new Banana and it must have been on the shelf too long as she did not react to the catnip in it at all. I dumped it mostly out, added the silvervine and she’s bonkers over it. I will find a source for it. Thanks again.

  5. That is great news pepcid is helping Joanie. That is a cute poem and you never know what to expect these days.

  6. Chaplin: “Whoa, looks like Santa got into the eggnog agai—”
    Charlee: “SHHH! He’ll hear you!”
    Lulu: “We’re glad to hear Joanie seems to be feeling better! We send lots of tail wags for it to continue!”
    Oona: “And Oona and the other kitties send purrs!”

  8. Such great news about Joanie eating! Excellent idea with the Pepcid, Ellen. Prayers and fingers crossed that her appetite stays good.
    Lucky TM with her Furby!
    Thank the heavens for the Elves!

  9. Love your clever poem! Happy Pepcid is helping Joanie. When Fiona had her CKD we were supposed to giver her Maalox. Most if it ended up on the kitchen walls.
