Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

This is a fun challenge hosted each week by the boys from Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy and Angel Sammy. They present us with an inspiration photo each Thursday, we write a poem based on the photo and post it the following Thursday. Angel Sammy also writes a poem, which he transmits to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge.

It is always fun to see how the poets participating interpret the photo. Sometimes all our poems are very similar and other times nothing alike; even though, we are all operating off the same photo. Anyhoo, here is today’s inspiration photo. It’s a fun one!



And here is my poem. I got a little carried away this week and didn’t know when to stop.


Beware of Kids in High Chairs

How do you like my new hat?
It’s a little slippery and oozy,
But I don’t mind…that’s a fact.

I’ll get to go for a swim in the tub,
While Mom washes me all over,
With a rub-a-dub dub!

If Mom is too busy to clean up the mess,
I bet some feline will help with the washing…
Maybe Mau, Cooper Murphy or Lisbeth.

Mommy as a kid performed similar stunts
With all manner of messy foods,
Requiring lots of assisted clean-ups.

Covering Easter dress with juice of cherries.
Spraying beets on white curtains,
Grandma Mary taught her razzberries!

Her mom poured milk undrunk over her head
And after getting a bath and hair wash,
She missed dessert and was sent off to bed.

Little kids can make great big messes.
When eating with one’s hands it’s expected.
It’s just too bad some parents it stresses.

Rubbing mashed potatoes in our hair
Or putting noodles up our noses,
No matter how disgusting, we don’t care.

If you don’t want to get hit by a wiener and bun,
You better stay clear of kids in high chairs,
Flinging and wearing food is just plain fun.

Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday Kitties Blue and I have made it a habit to join this blog hop hosted by Brian. After all, we do have much for which to be thankful.

The number one thankful on our list is for the overwhelming support, prayers, purrs, POTP and love sent to Sawyer. I said it before, but it definitely deserves being said again, “Pet/Animal bloggers are the most compassionate, caring and empathetic people I have ever encountered.” I truly feel blessed to be part of this community! Thank you.

Our number two thankful this week is a big one: Construction is almost at an end with only a few small jobs remaining. Our new bedroom furniture was delivered yesterday. With any luck, next Thursday I will be able to report that we are sleeping in our new first-floor addition. Fingers and paws crossed!

Finally, the kitties and I are thankful that we had some pretty good luck on the Tuesday Teaser this week. If you don’t know, it is also hosted by Two Spoiled Cats. We garnered two badges. The first was for being one of two “First Commenters.” We  were delighted to share that honor with Friends Furever, the blog of Mau’s wife Allie as well as Raz and Noelle.

We also received a “Right Guesser” badge for knowing the locale of the photo. We weren’t first with the correct answer but not too far behind. Our badges are below.
