A CHEEKY POEM AND THANKFULS

by Janet Blue on April 18, 2019

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

On Thursdays, we like to join our friends, Teddy and Angel Sammy, and write a poem based on an inspiration photo they provide on the previous Thursday. This week’s photo is another super cute one. I don’t think you can look at this squirrel and not smile.

 

Thankful Thursday

 

Cheeky Squirrel’s Lament

Does this nut make my cheek look fat?
Maybe I should have thought of that.
I needed to have a much better plan—
Selecting a smaller nut, like a pecan.
I could have shelled that super fast
And then enjoyed my nutty repast.
Maybe I can pucker up and spit it out
‘Cause I know for help I cannot shout.
Gathering nuts (for wintertime) to store
Is a tedious task I truly abhor.
Being able to buy a nut when hungry
Would certainly cause me less grief.
But until I can earn some cash,
I guess I’ll need to keep a nut stash
And stretch my poor cheeks to the max!

Thankful Thursday

We’ve got three thankfuls this week.

First from our mom: One of her very favorite television shows, The Amazing Race, began a new season last night.

Second from all of us: Our dad knew the Tuesday Teaser (Plaza des Armas, Lima, Peru) at Two Spoiled Cats, as he’s been there. We weren’t the first to guess correctly, but we still won this special Easter Teaser badge.

Third from Sawyer: All the fur has grown back on his front legs from the IVs he had on his last two visits to the emergency vet. He’s just as grateful that he has not had a seizure of an extended length that would necessitate a trip there.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by our friend, Brian. To join in, post for what you are thankful, and then click on the badge below to go to the blog hop.

Purrs and paw-pats, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
