We, Kitties Blue, are writing today’s post and have decided to start with thankfuls, as we have many this week.
First off, is a thankful from Periwinkle & Stinky who tied for first place in the Teaserween Costume Contest at Two Spoiled Cats. Their co-winner was Joanie from 15 And Meowing in her nurse’s costume. The tabbies are very thankful that Mom Sharon (Friends Furever) entered them in the contest. Here are Periwinkle & Stinky in their costumes (check out that mustache) and the badge they won. (If you missed their last adventure, click here.)
Mom is thankful to have guessed correctly on the Tuesday Teaser; though, she was the last to guess, not the first. She did win this special badge.
Mom has this week’s biggest thankful. She and Dad Tom now have a chair lift from the garage to the first floor of our house. When they put the addition on the house, they planned to eventually have a lift. They just didn’t expect eventually to come so soon. We haven’t been able to try it out. The manual says it is not for pets. Phooey!
Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by that handsome and popular tabby, Brian. If you would like to join us on the hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful. Then click the badge below to go to Brian’s blog and enter your link.
Thoroughly Poetic Thursday by Kitties Blue
We decided to totally let mom have the day off (except for typing, of course) and are joining Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge. So, we asked Mom for her thoughts on this week’s inspiration photo and then wrote the poem ourselves. Here’s the photo and our poem.
Days Gone By
An airplane trip was a luxury when our mom was young.
At aged 13 she had her very first one.
Meals were free and prepared by gourmet chefs.
Sunday best was how everyone dressed:
Hats and gloves for ladies, suits and ties for men.
Traveling in pajama pants was frowned upon then.
Flying now is a giant pain and like a cattle call:
Tiny seats, masks, no snacks…and no fun at all!
Though there are lots of places our mom wants to go,
She believes she’ll stay home and watch TV travel shows.

If you’d like to play along and write a poem, head on over to Two Spoiled Cats on Thursdays to find the photo for the following week. You can go there now and find next week’s photo, as well as Sammy’s poem for this week. While visiting, make certain to read Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge, and it always gets an A+ from us.
You can go to Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on the poetry badge.
Thanks for visiting us.
