Today is the fourth week of Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and our prompt is the letter D.



Mom and Dad are on an overnight jaunt, so our poem and post are a bit off track. After a filet, a bottle of Malbec and some ridiculously decadent, dark-chocolate torte, our petrecary’s brain is muddled and befuddled.

The best she could accomplish is this pathetic haiku.
Tired of our toys.
Waiting for our BlogPaw’s swag.
Delayed…train derailed.


Our “D” is represented in both delayed and derailed. Add to that disappointment, and we think we have the bases covered.

The two boxes of goodies our parental units shipped home from the BlogPaws Conference via UPS were scheduled to arrive Tuesday, the 5th. The arrival is now scheduled for today. Dad checked and the boxes are in Virginia, so we have our paws crossed that we’ll be burrowing through the booty by day’s end.
