Thankful Thursday

A strange thing happened this week. Our mom was the First Right Guesser on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. Now that is pretty amazing on it’s own. But…she also was the only one to guess correctly! She won this cool badge. 

We are always grateful for all our friends and supporters, but especially those who join us for Sunday Selfies. A great group participanted this week, and we thank each of you.

We are particularly thankful for the few of you following “The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky.” These two tabbies are having so much fun, and we know you will too if you follow them. Mom is working on getting all their adventures under one tab for anyone who wants to catch up. Until that is complete, you can pop over to Friends Furever and click on their “The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky” tab.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To join, post on your blog for what you are thankful, and then click on Brian’s badge to hop over to Brian’s and enter your link.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

As with most Thursday’s, we are here with a poem for the Two Spoiled Cats’, Teddy and Angel Sammy, weekly poetry challenge. They present us with a photo to act as inspiration and this week’s is a doozy.

Sammy writes a poem and transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. And those inspired by the photo do the same. It’s really quite fun and gets us to use our imaginations. If you haven’t tried it, why not?

Even if you don’t have the desire to participate, click on the poetry badge so you can pop over and read Sammy’s poem. We guarantee you’ll be impressed. And check out the comments for links to other poems.

We now present this week’s photo and our mom’s poem.



The Pantless Shoveler

People do crazy things
Others just don’t understand.
For example, the antics of this man
Shoveling snow in only robe and boots.
Did he just forget his pants or
Give them away to a needy passerby?
Perhaps they were stolen by a marauding bear.
More likely he’s just a Canadian…
Shorts and sweatshirt under his robe.
He looks silly but chances are he doesn’t care.
We know we could speculate all day and never
Guess the reason, so we’ll be on our way…
Buddled in our parka, mittens, scarf and hat
Marveling at the idiosyncrasies of our fellow man.

Love the poem. Some folks dress very oddly when they are going outside. I’ve seen a lot of old, fat men go shirtless in the summer and they think they are hot. NOT!

Have a fabulous day, Janet. Big hug to you and lots of lovies and scritches to the kitties. ♥

Our neighbor goes without a shirt sometimes in the cold weather; we just cannot figure that one out! I’m wrapped up head to toe in boots, coats, scarves, hats, gloves…LOL!

Your poem to the pic just made me laugh! I can’t imagine. I’m like anything below 60 degrees F and it’s back to wishing I was still in Florida! LOL!

That is a fun poem.
Congrats on being first and only guesser on the Teaser. It was a hard one from that angle, (taken from the ship balcony).

What a great poem. It reminds me of yesterday when I left the house in shorts only to discover we had the coldest temperature of the season, a bone chilling 63 degrees. Have a great day.

What a “picture perfect” poem for Angel Sammy’s Poetry day……we just KNEW there would be some great poems written for this photo when we saw it and we were right!! HAHA Imagine this guy out there shoveling away and hoping a big breeze doesn’t come along and EXPOSE him to all that cold?!?!?!?! Thanks for pawticipating in Poetry Day and again – SUPER CONCATULATIONS on being First Right Guesser this week. We are loving Stinky and Periwinkle’s fun adventures. Putting the story together on a tab is a great idea!
