Thankful Thursday

We are starting with our thankfuls today and will follow up with our poem for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday.

We did not acknowledge yesterday the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America. Today I am offering my thanks to all those first responders and every person who worked at the site of the twin towers after their collapse. Each one is/was a hero.

Our second thankful actually comes from Lisbeth.

My thankful is for my sweet, thoughtful, generous and handsome boy friend, Charles. He sent me the most wonderful package of goodies for my birthday. It included a quilted blanket, a variety of toys, some nip and two packages of treats. One package of treats is a new Chicken and Waffles variety. I am going to need to keep an eye on Mom, so she doesn’t try to steal them. Chicken and waffles is one of her favorite combos.



Charles and his mom, Inge, are so generous, they even sent Astrid a beautiful, handmade, crocheted blanket.  (If you are new to our blog, you may not know that Astrid and I share the same birth date.) I know Astrid will be sharing a photo of it in a future post.

Thank you Charles. I love you, your girl Lisbeth 💖💋

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To join Lisbeth on the hop, post on your blog for what you are thankful, and then click on the badge below.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Now it is time for the poem I wrote based on an inspiration photo provided by our hosts, Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats.

Here’s this week’s photo and my poem.



Traveling Small

This car is definitely silly.
Bet it wouldn’t get over one little hilly.
I can’t even see a way to get inside…
Must be an uncomfortable ride.
Do you think it travels by pedal power
With a top speed of five miles per hour?
I would much rather go for a walk,
Than drive by and see everybody gawk
At the idiot in his miniature car
That is super slow and bizarre.

Each Thursday Teddy and Angel Sammy provide a photo to inspire those of us who participate in their poetry day. If you’re not a regular participate but think you’d like to give poetry a try, click on the badge below to check out the photo for next week. And while you are doing that, don’t forget to read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge, and he is a true poet. Check out the Comments section as well for links to poems by other bloggers.

That’s it for today. We’ll see you tomorrow for Friendly Fill-Ins and Feline Friday.
