Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
We always look forward to Thursday and the challenge of writing a poem to accompany the inspiration photo selected by Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats). This week it was particularly fun, as our humans enjoy doing exactly what the family in this photo is doing. We’ll tell you’re about that after our poem.
Cats Don’t Ride Bicycles
Biking with friends and family is always fun…
A great way to spend a day in the sun,
Getting some exercise, enjoying the fresh air,
Feeling the wind blowing through your hair.
It will give you a sense of freedom and calm,
And that’s a good thing for our dad and mom.
But we are kitties, and we don’t ride bikes.
If given the chance, we’d rather take a hike.
We don’t want to wear helmets or special shoes;
Even though, we might enjoy some exciting views.
But for our humans, it makes them smiley and happy,
So we’ll remain home and have a lovely nappy.

Mom and Dad Tom ride a tandem bike and have since 2000. It’s perfect for them as mom has no independent balance and cannot ride a single bike. It does take some practice, as Dad isn’t great at communicating and Mom isn’t good about giving up control. But after 19 years, they have gotten pretty good at this. Unfortunately with the alternating rain and hots we’ve had this summer, they haven’t been able to ride outside much. Instead they spend a lot of time on the Peloton. Mom hasn’t missed riding in 67-straight weeks. (If you don’t know what Peloton is, click on the link.)
We asked if we could share a couple of photos of them with the tandem. The one on the left is from 2004. The one on the right is from 2013. They were in Williamsburg, VA, with friends who have biked all over the world on their tandem.
We’d like to invite everyone who hasn’t taken part in Thoroughly Poetic Thursday to give it a try. It’s fun and gives you the opportunity to stretch your imagination.

We all have a H-U-G-E thankful this week. The footings for the addition were poured before it started raining again. The lower left corner in the photo is where the addition will attach to the house.
We’re thankful as well that Sawyer’s meds are working. He’s been seizure free for the past few weeks. We are most grateful we had Chris taking care of us for three days while Mom and Dad went out of town for their great niece’s Bat Mitzvah. It was the usual nip and treat bonanza for us!
