Thankful Thursday


Hi everyone. Before we get started, we want to give our condolences to Food Service Girl and her mom on the loss of beautiful Daisy.  To visit, click here. 


We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful I was able to go to lunch with an old friend and her 2 grown up daughters. We had a great time at Olive Garden ( got to go 2 times in one week).

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

Some people are brave,
adventure I don’t crave.
On the shore I will remain
and leave this for the insane.
This Friday we are having a special fill-in for Dr. Seuss Day as part of the weeklong celebration on The Blogosphere.  Lorianne and I have come up with all reading themed fill-ins and we hope everyone will join in the fun. If you don’t have a blog, you can answer in the comments.  I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

    1. So sorry for the loss of your Daisy Mae, dear Crystal. A Tuxie like me. And Ms E…your poems are HILARIOUS and give us a smile at breakfast each time.

  2. We were very sorry to learn of the loss of Daisy. Glad you had a good time getting out with friends! I love rapids – from the river banks, that is. I’d love to ride down rivers, but not through rapids. XO

  3. I am very sad for Laura and her mom that Dai$y gained her wings. She was the last of the original Tabbies.
    That is a fun poem. We went on the Rapids ride at Disney and it definitely wasn’t like that!!

  4. Great poem! I think whoever does that stuff is a bit insane too! We were very sad to learn of Dai$y flying away to join the other Angels and we know the Food Service Girl and her Mom are VERY sad. We are sending big hugs.

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

  5. Soar high sweet Angel Daisy! My condolences to her family. I love your poem and my daredevil days are over. I am lucky to have survived some of the crazy things I did when I was younger.

      1. You’re welcome, Ellen. I was braver when I was younger and now that I am older, I am more cautious and hopefully wiser.LOL

  6. Dai$y and Daisy, fly high and happy. All of us here are still bereft at your leaving. Be free and bathed in joy and light.

  7. Yep slow and steady is how I like to travel and DRY.
    Years ago one of the professor’s I worke with took his boy scot troop to the place I mention in my poem. When he returned he told me about all the fun…..then he said he fell out landing near a rock an really scratched up his leg and arm. OK that was enough to convince me to stay on dryland.
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. I’m with you, I’ll stand on the shore and leave that kind of adventure to the insane. lol Thanks for your prayers, Ellen! 😉

  9. Thanks for the news about Dai$y. That water ride is not something we Ts want to do and the Mom only has done a ride like that back a squillion years ago at Busch Gardens.

  10. I’m so sad to read about another kitty passing away. 🙁 Thanks for sharing your funny poem and the Dr. Suess badge brightened my day, as well. Blessings, my dear.

  11. What a fun thankful for you and your friends! We’re sure sad that Dai$y had to go on to her next big adventure at the Bridge.

  12. I’m very sad about Dai$y, Queen of the Run On Sentence, The Cod Mother, Matriarch of Troute Towne. She will be sorely missed.

    Your poem is fun, although I would love to try a slightly tamer river myself, just for fun.

    Olive Garden twice in a week? Score!!!
