Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue and I are participating in the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by our pal, Brian. You can do the same by clicking on the badge at the left.

Dad Tom and I remain thankful to be safe and virus free. We have no idea when we will be able to get the vaccine, but we will be in line as soon as it’s available.

Kitties Blue are thankful for all the holiday cards they received, and we will show them on another day. Amazingly we continue to receive cards that were mailed well before Christmas. The most recent was received on Tuesday from one state away. It was mailed on December 10. The sender could have walked it here faster! 

Dad Tom and I also remain thankful we adopted Kizmet. She is a total character and one-kitten wrecking machine, so provides us with hours of entertainment (and some clean-up). She and Sawyer enjoy chasing each other all over the house. We just wish they wouldn’t do it in the middle of the night. 

Kizmet’s most recent antics include stealing sponges and other dish cleaning implements from the kitchen and dragging them through the house!




As always, we are thankful for your support and friendship. We pray that you all remain safe and healthy.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday is not only the day we share our thankfuls but also our poems based on an inspiration photo. The photo is provided by the Two Spoiled Cats (Teddy and Angel Sammy). Angel Sammy also writes a poem based on the photo and transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. It is always an excellent read, so I suggest you click on the poetry badge and pop over to Two Spoiled Cats to read it. While there, you can get next week’s inspiration photo and write your own poem.

This week’s photo and my poem are below.



The new neighbors seemed nice.
When they began to remodel, we didn’t think twice.
We had no idea what they had in mind
Or that their house would be of a different kind.
The icy igloo in the midst of our city
Is impractical; though, it is sort of pretty.
We are certain it will melt when summer comes.
We’re digging a swimming pool to catch what runs
From their house and yard and into ours.
It will fill the pool and water the flowers!
