Have you missed us? We sure hope so! You can read about why we’ve been missing in the Thankful Thursday portion of his post. But before we get to that, here’s…

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday




Strawberries, chocolate, bananas, ice cream,
A sundae to match a dessert junkie’s dream.

The taste would be something to savor,
With a delicious mix of fabulous flavors.

But being lactose intolerant could be a problem,
Making this yummy concoction not so awesome.

Maybe I’d be better to stick with a big piece of pie.
Either way the calories will go straight to my thighs.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday was created by our dear friend, Angel Sammy. Each week he gives us a photo to inspire us to write a poem and then transmits his poem from the Rainbow Bridge to his brother Teddy. Sammy is a masterful poet, and we think you should never miss reading his poem. To do that and to find links in the Comments to poems by other bloggers, click on his badge.

Thankful Thursday

This has been a crazy week with more bad than good, but we still have a long list of thankfuls.

  • Though Mom fell down the stairs and is pretty banged up, with bruises and pain, she managed to complete her 500th ride on the Peloton. Her goal had been to achieve that on her 70th birthday in March, but she beat that goal by nearly six weeks. Woot, woot, Mom!
  • Sawyer had a seizure. It was one of his drooly, eye, ear and head twitchy ones, which are not nearly so severe and do subside on their own. And should he have another severe one, we now have valium here at home in suppository form should he need it. That gives Mom and Dad lots of peace of mind.
  • We are having issues with WordPress and are unable to post photos, which is one of the reasons we haven’t posted in three days. However, with this being Thoroughly Poetic Thursday, Mom was able to copy and paste this week’s inspiration photo into our post, giving her another day to try to get this problem corrected.
  • Cat Scouts Mau and Cooper Murphy presented a report, entitled “Beware the Strangler Fig,” at Cat Scouts University and both passed their Botany Exam—Mau with a 97% and Cooper Murphy with an 87%. Way to go, boys!
