Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

When we saw this weeks’s inspiration photo, we thought it was of space aliens.



When Mom saw the poem we were writing, she explained that these weren’t aliens but ladies with their heads in heated hoods to dry their hair. That meant we had to rethink our approach. This is the resulting poem.

Alien Invasion*

We can groom our furs whenever we want…
No trips to the beauty parlor
For a wash and a cut.

These poor ladies must have been so bored,
As they waited for their hair to dry
And fashionable curls to form.

Styles now are simple and sleek.
They can be done each day
And don’t need to last all week.

Our mom can style her furs at home
Where we can give tips and suggestions
And play with her brush and comb.

Thankful Thursday

This a blog hop hosted each week by Brian. It is an opportunity for bloggers to share for what we are thankful. We kitties are thankful we cannot catch Mom’s cold. Mom and Dad are thankful that, after a week of inactivity, work on the addition resumed yesterday. Mom, Dad and Sawyer are grateful his recent seizure was mild. Finally, we are all thankful our dad is retired and no longer works for the Federal Government. Though he was furloughed a few times during his 30-plus-year tenure, he never was out of work for such an extended amount of time. Our prayers are with all the Federal employees.

That picture is dated not only for the hair dryers but *all* the ladies are wearing skirts or dresses! My mother would *never* have dreamt of leaving the house to do errands unless she had on a skirt either…
We had a good MOL/BOL at your alien thoughts!

How funny that those dryers made you think of an alien invasion! We loved your poem, too! 🙂

I recall going to a beauty salon as a child, and being scared of the smells and the machines! I still have a bonnet hair-dryer from that time, when you’d put curlers in your hair, then pull the bonnet over and let the warm air dry your head. Maybe this is why I keep my hair very short now; no fuss!

I love your poem. Cute. Those things do make you think aliens.

I’m glad Sawyer only had a milk seizure, but we’d rather he didn’t have any at all. Just saying.

Happy retirement to your hubby.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Big hug to you, Janet and scritches all around for the kitties. ♥

HAHAHA! Good one guys! Yep – they do look a lot like egg-headed aliens indeed. Sadly my Mom says she remembers these and other “torture machines” like them from her youth – her Mom always took her with her to the beauty parlor and she’d get her hair curled and dried too. Mom remembers being VERY BORED under the alien hood! This was a fun poetic challenge – next week will be good too!!! Thanks for joining in the fun every week.

Hugs, Teddy
