Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It’s Thursday and time to put on our poetry thinking caps and see what we can come up with for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge over at Two Spoiled Cats.

I really liked this week’s inspiration photo, but that thinking cap seemed to have a short circuit, until I finally settled on trying a limerick. So, that’s exactly what I’ve written this week.



What a bummer to get a flat tire,
dressed up in your very best attire
on the way to prom.
Just try to stay calm,
and your boyfriend’s strength admire!

If you’d like to participate in Thoroughly Poetic Thursday, click on the badge above. Each Thursday Mom Pam posts an inspiration photo for the following Thursday. While visiting Two Spoiled Cats make certain you read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge. Angel Sammy is an incredible poet, and his poems are always worth reading.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday is also the day when we share the things for which we are thankful.

Firstly, we are thankful for all the kindness, love and support we continue to receive as we grieve the loss of Mau. We are particularly grateful for the evening of remembrance for Mau at Cat Scouts. So many fun memories and photos were shared. Mauricio was so proud to be a Cat Scout and loved spending time with his fellow Scouts. That they thought enough of him to put together such a heartfelt memorial was really special to all of us.

Periwinkle and Stinky are thankful so many joined them and enjoyed their Adventure Tuesday, Visiting/Remembering Mau. If that was your first time accompany these two spunky tabbies on one of their adventures, they hope you will return for future adventures.

Dad Tom and I are thankful we have found something Sawyer will eat (Blue Buffalo Wilderness Duck), at least for the time being. We also are thankful we were able to switch Sawyer’s Keppra prescription to the on-line, compound, pet pharmacy and get tuna-flavored instead of the grape-flavored we have been getting locally.

I am thankful I remembered it was Tuesday on Tuesday and woke up early enough to be one of three First Commenters on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. I shared First Commenter honors with Mom Sharon (Friends Furever) and Dad Pete (Tomcat Commentary by Tim). But there can only be one First Right Guesser, and that also was me. Woohoo! I got these two badges.
