Thoroughly Poetic Thursday on Friday

As we promised yesterday, when we preempted our Thursday post for Tyebe’s Gotcha Day Party, we are posting our poem today for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge.

Here’s the inspiration photo followed by my poem.



Too Much of a Good Thing


Me oh my…so much pie!
What have I done
Eating every last one?
I was promised a prize,
But it was just a big ole lie.
I knew I had a big appetite
And thought I might win a new bike.
This paper crown ain’t nothin’,
But this pain in my gut is somethin’.
I guess I learned a valuable lesson…
With this much pie I won’t be messin’,
Unless I have a written guarantee
That the prize is nothing less than a pony.

You will find next week’s inspiration photo, as well as Angel Sammy’s poem based on this week’s photo. He is an accomplished poet, and everything he writes is worth your time to read it.

Thankful Thursday on Friday

We are a day late as well for this important blog hop hosted by Brian. It is important to count or blessing each week regardless of the day on which we post.

Cooper has the first thankful this week. Tyebe (The Canadian Cats) said, “yes,” and she is now officially his girlfriend. He’s never been happier. He’d also like to thank those who came to Tyebe’s Gotcha Day Party on our blog.

Dad Tom and I are thankful that the CBD oil I ordered for Sawyer arrived yesterday. I will be getting him started on it today. He had seizures on both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, so I am praying the addition of the CBD to his other medications will help to limit the frequency and number of his seizures. Of course, I will keep everyone posted on how this goes.

Finally, we remain grateful to be virus free as, to the best of our knowledge, do our family and friends.

Friendly Fill-Ins

Friday is Fill-Ins blog hop day, but we will be combining those with our Caturday Art post. By Sunday we should be back on track with our Sunday Selfies blog hop.

Let’s get that CBD oil working on Sawyer.. Wouldn’t this be so much easier if they were Absence mals instead of the Tonic Clonic type. So much easier on Sawyer too.

Here’s hoping the CBD oil is the missing link.

I hope the CBD oil helps your dear boy.
Fun poem and I think the boy has a lot of regrets now.

We are hopeful as is EVERYONE that the CBD oil helps Sawyer with his seizures – hopefully at least reducing the frequency! He is so brave and strong. What a GREAT poem for the poetry challenge this week. That little guy will be very sorry (if he isn’t already) that he even ENTERED the pie eating contest…..hopefully he got more of a prize than a paper crown!!! Happy Friday…….

Love, Pam and Teddy too

I do hope and pray that the CBD will give wonderful results for Sawyer. Since its a natural product, it may take a bit of time to really know if it works.

Poor little dude who got no pony, MOL!!

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
