Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!


It’s Double Post Day Again!

One blog post for two occasions………Brian’s Thankful Thursday and my very own Thoroughly Poetic Thursday.    So let the fun begin………..first with Brian’s Thankful Thursday – the badge below will whisk you away to his blog if you’d like to join up with this blog hop and talk about what you are THANKFUL for…….I’m thankful that even though my little brother Teddy is slowly taking over the reins of what used to be “my” blog, and some of “my” duties like KING OF BACON – I can still not be jealous but instead be PROUD of him for carrying on the traditions that I started.   Teddy is a super sweet kitty and he wears his “GINGER” very well if I do say so myself!

Part Two of today’s post is my poem of the week……………!

My words are in RED    Teddy’s words are in BLUE

 We are up to the letter “N” of the alphabet slowly working our way to Z !  You can join in by putting your blog link with your poem in my comments to share OR just write your poem in my comments and we’ll all read it here! 



By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 3/16/17

“Never say never” is a saying I like

Learning to be hopeful is like riding a bike

There are bumps in the road and you might take a fall

But at the end of your ride, it will be worth it all.

If you feel like it’s “never” then you might as well give up

You must believe in HALF FULL not HALF EMPTY for your cup

Hope is the oil that keeps all things on track

In our hearts, in our minds, we just shouldn’t look back

For thinking “NEVER” means that you won’t even try

You won’t look beyond the clouds at the beautiful blue sky…..

So never say never…..keep a smile on your face

You might pull out in front and WIN your life’s race!

Hey Sammy, that was a swell poem!   I promise I will NEVER say NEVER!   But I do want to remind our blog friends that this Saturday we will have more information on the upcoming BACON HARVEST PARTY………..details and some “photo op” shots that those of you who want to pawticipate in the party can use to put yourself in the action!   You’ll see what I mean Saturday so STAY TUNED.    We’re going to have a fabulous time!   How could it NOT be fabulous – the Ginger Boys are at the helm of the GOOD SHIP BACONIA!

Oui, Oui, Mon frere Teddy…..we will have fun at the pawty


I thank everyone for joining us today for our DOUBLE POST Thursday! 

Bonjour mon amis!   

Love, Angel Sammy

  2. Sammy, your poem is absolute purrfection, and a good reminder for all of us. Our mom is such an idiot. She wrote our post as always and thought she scheduled it as always, but guess what? She didn’t and so just posted now. Of course, we have a poem. Cooper wrote it again. If anyone wants to see it, they can at
    We think our mom might need a brain transplant. Sending lots of love and warm hugs to all.

Hope you have a GREAT Thursday and remember Saturday I’ll have info on the bacon harvest for NEXT Saturday!
