We Did It!
We made it thru the alphabet again! We’re THANKFUL for that!
It’s Thankful Thursday with Brian at Brian’s Home Blog and one of the many things we are thankful for is that we made it to Z with our poetic challenge – the second time through the alphabet and today we finish up with Z. Then we’re going to do something a little different (for those who want to). But FIRST – let’s talk “THANKFUL” – if you’d like to join in Brians’ Blog Hop and talk about how thankful you are and what for, DO IT. Click on his badge above and use the LINKY tool and link up to the blog. Share with the world what you are thankful for.
Teddy is thankful for Mom’s printer…………..WHAT??? Yes, strange but true. He has a total fascination with the printer. He can hear her turn it on and he comes running…….he sits quietly while it purrs, roars, gets warmed up then spits out a piece of paper she’s printed. He’s fascinated. Totally. He doesn’t move………sometimes he will go over to it after she’s turned it off and try to turn it back on again. He can’t QUITE reach the button on top and he’s not QUITE strong enough to push it down so no danger in him starting it but he obviously considers it a MAJOR item of fascination!
Excuse Mom’s messy office…….!!!!
Teddy also is thankful for his torn up, messed up, beat up, used up, barely there red kitty cube. He plays with it until he’s exhausted then passes out partially inside on his back exposing his WHATEVER to the world! Mom will turn around in her office chair and frequently sees this site – she couldn’t resist snapping YET ANOTHER photo of the little guy halfway in his pitiful old cube!
And last but not least, the little guy is VERY thankful that Mom has a studio couch in her office and he can lounge about on it and watch her work………..this is the first time she’s caught him in this particular pose though………..WHAT WAS HE THINKING? Who knows. We don’t try and figure him out- we just love him and his LASER eyes!
Now on to other business – let’s talk POETRY…………….in fact, let’s talk my THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAYS!!!
First of all thanks for sticking with me through the alphabet for “Time #2″……….it’s been fun and you all (or at least more of you than NOT) want to do it all over again so we will but with a bit of a TWIST. Let’s do my “Z” poem though before we talk about “what’s next” OK?

Sometimes life just gets so busy
Every day can make you dizzy
Moving quickly to get things done
Busy days start well before the sun!
You don’t have to be real brainy
To realize that life is ZANY!
At the Bridge we take things slow
Here on Earth it’s GO GO GO
Even on a day that’s rainy
My poor Mom says things are ZANY!
Keeping up with the house, Teddy and blogs
She says her days “go to the dogs”
I think she’s feeling a little INSANE-EY
Which come to think about it, means she’s ZANY!
HAHAHA……not my best work that one but whatcha gonna do with Z? I could have done ZOO but then again………….Mom says “Zany” fits her to a “T”…………….
So in order to make things more interesting as we begin next week to start AGAIN with the letter “A” and work our way through to ZANY Z…………………….here’s the plan. If you would like to participate in my Poetic Thursdays, you can do one of the below:
- Continue as you have with ANY word of your choice for the subject of that week’s poem…….any “A” word you wish for instance for next week, OR
- You can write a poem about one of these PROMPT words for “A” A poem about: (1) ants (2) anger (3) apples (4) ankles
I will be using a prompt but you can feel free to do as you have done and just use any subject for your poem starting with the letter of the week!!!! How’s that sound? Fun I hope!!! So if you don’t want to use one of the prompts, you don’t have to! Just have fun – WRITE A POEM – and share it with all of us!
Until Next Thursday!!!
Love, Angel Sammy (and zany Teddy…..)
