Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Check out this adorable photo Angel Sammy selected for us to write a poem about this week. A happy little girl to start the new year was the perfect choice.

Roller Derby Queen

I may be only three
And just learning to skate
But in my dreams
I’m a roller derby queen.
I have a cool nickname
Like Curly, the Crusher, or
The Blonde Basher.
I have a thunderbolt tattoo
On my keister to cover
Bruises always present.
I’ve bedazzled my skates
To give my uniform flare
And added a bright pink
Streak to my hair.
When I told my mom
About my dream,
She turned totally green.
I feared she’d take away
My brand new skates,
Hoping I’d dream about staying
Home and baking cakes.
She calls me her princess
And wants me always
To be sweet and girlie,
But I’ll keep dreaming
About a life of adventure
As I skate on the driveway.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday is hosted each week by Angel Sammy and Teddy from Two Spoiled Cats. They peasant a photo each Thursday, and participants use it as an inspiration to write a poem the following Thursday. Angel Sammy writes a poem each week and transmits it from the Rainbow Bridge. His poems are always terrific and worth reading. To visit Two Spoiled Cats, click on the badge below.

Thankful Thursday 

We are excited to welcome in 2019. Last year was not terrific, so we know this one has to be better. We have several things for which to be thankful this week.

Our main thankful is that Sawyer is now two-weeks seizure free. The three-med combo seems to be working. He has his annual check-up with Dr. Neel this afternoon. I’m sure he won’t be happy about that. Will the PTU Pooper strike again?

We were fortunate to be a “Right Guesser” on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. This cool badge was the prize.


We are grateful to have reached our 1,800th post. I never could have predicted that this lady with the short attention span and propensity for procrastination could have made it this far!

Finally, Kitties Blue, Dad Tom and I send our thanks to those who commented on yesterday’s post remembering Lily Olivia on the one-year anniversary of her death.
