Thankful Thursday

Thankfuls are hard to come by these days with Sawyer still missing. Dad Tom and I are thankful, however, for all those who continue to purr, pray and post about him.

Kizmet is thankful for those who voted for her in the Helen Woodward Superheroes Sidekicks Calendar Contest.

All of us are thankful for the love and support you give us everyday.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. If you would like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his block and enter your link.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

After a couple weeks off, I have written a poem for Angel Sammy and Teddy’s poetry challenge.

Here’s this week’s inspiration photo and my poem, which is actually about my Grandpa Herman and me.




I had a pogo stick when I was six.
It was a Christmas gift from my grandpa.
He tried to show me how to use it
And ended up in the juniper bushes.

We’re still hoping, purring and praying for Sawyer to come home safely.

Is your poem true? Juniper bushes are not something you want to fall into!

I see Kismet is still in second place this morning and is 25 votes short of first place.

Love the poem and I never had a pogo stick. I’m sure that I didn’t want one. Never appealed to me.

Sawyer please come home. We all love and miss you.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches all around and a hug to mom. ♥

Our prayers and purrs continue for Sawyers return to his family. Angel Charles sends Ms Lisbeth his never ending love. Your poem was lovely.


Teddy and Mom July 15, 2021 at 5:37 am

We will hope Sawyer comes home every single minute until he does! What a FABULOUS poem for Angel Sammy’s poetry day – I think your grandpa was very brave to try and show you how to “operate” the pogo……I can remember landing in bushes several times myself which I preferred to landing on the hard sidewalk!

Hugs, Pam and Teddy too
