Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

We are here with a poem for Angel Sammy and Teddy’s (Two Spoiled Cats) poetry challenge. The inspiration photo they selected for us today definitely elicited an “awww” from me. Kitties Blue are great fans of the squirrels at our house, as they provide them with hours of entertainment.



When the Kids Move Back Home

Hey, quit hogging all the space.
This is my resting place.
Go build your own nests;
You two are huge pests.
When you first moved away,
I expected you to stay…
Not come home and move back in
After all you are now grown men.

Thankful Thursday

In addition to writing a poem on Thursday, we also share our thankfuls with you and join the blog hop at Brian’s Home.

I have one thankful this week that outweighs all others. I am thankful for the return to sanity in our Nation’s Capitol with the inauguration of Joesph R. Biden and Kamala D. Harris as our new President and Vice President. May our country begin to heal. 

I remain broken-hearted over the more than 400,000 of our citizens who have lost their lives to the coronavirus. Though I do not expect to be able to get a vaccine anytime soon, I am thankful that it is out there and eventually will be available to all who want it.

Finally, I am thankful for the support and friendship of those who follow us. May you all remain safe and healthy in 2021.

To participate in the blog hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to share your thankfuls with him and join the hop.

Gratuitous Cat Photo

This being a cat blog, I felt impelled to share a photo of one of the Kitties Blue.



Another photo of Misty May in her favorite spot–her dad’s lap, for which she is always thankful.
