Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday we are happy to share the things for which we are thankful.

Kitties Blue are most thankful for all the holiday cards they have received. They have gotten at least five for each one Dad Tom and I have received.

Though Sawyer had a small focal seizure last evening, he has been seizure free for a little over three weeks. We are all so grateful.



Kitties Blue and I are thankful for the support and friendship each of you offer us.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by everyone’s friend, Brian. If you’d like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on the badge below to link up with the hop.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday is also the day some of us write poetry based on an inspiration photo provided by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats. Here’s this week’s photo.



You Have to Suffer to Be Beautiful


All this primping is such a pain
To look pretty for another Great Dane.
I am certain he doesn’t even like me,
But my parents have invited him for tea
To see if he’d make a good mate,
So the two of us might propagate
And give them a litter of puppies!

The title I selected for my poem is something my mother used to say to me often when I was a child. The photo reminded me of it, as she often said this after setting my hair with metal curlers, which I would then have to sleep on.

Check out Two Spoiled Cats for next week’s inspiration photo.  And make certain to read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and he is a first-rate poet.
