Thankful Thursday



On this Thanksgiving Day Dad Tom and I are thankful for remaining Covid-19 free and for our seven wonderful kitty companions. Kitties Blue and I are thankful for all our blogging friends, followers and supporters. Sawyer/Stinky is thankful for everyone’s Gotcha Day messages.

The entire Blue family wishes all of you a blessed, happy and thankful day.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

In addition to sharing our thankfuls each Thursday, Kitties Blue and I participate in the Two Spoiled Cats’ (Teddy and Angel Sammy) poetry challenge. They provide an inspiration photo, and participants use that as a jumping off point for a poem.

Here’s the photo and my poem.



Christmas Overload


Did Christmas throw up on this house?
I’m surprised they forgot Mickey Mouse.
This must have taken months to complete
And probably produces lots of heat.
I imagine the power meter spinning fast
And a January electric bill quite vast.
I love Christmas and lots of lights,
But these folks have gone to ridiculous heights
To show off their holiday spirit to their neighbors
And impress them with their monumental labors.
I hope they still had time to enjoy the season—
Otherwise for this huge display I see no reason!
