It’s Double Duty Day!
Thankful Thursday and
Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
First let’s talk about being thankful – because we are – all of us! I’m thankful to be here in this home with my two parents who love me and spoil me rotten (Sammy told me they would!) and they think they are lucky to have found me at the shelter where they found Sammy so long ago…….(what they don’t realize is that Sammy arranged that to happen on purpose!). Also I’m thankful that Mom and Dad let me go for long walks on my leash where I can explore the whole big yard and woods……….I love digging in the mulch especially! Tee Hee Would you like to tell the world how thankful you are? Then click the above badge and go to Brian’s blog where you can join in the THANKFUL hop – use his Linky Tool, enter your blog address, post about what you’re thankful for and THAT’S IT!
The other thing we do on Thursdays is let my Angel brother Sammy continue with something he did before he left for the Bridge last December – write poetry together!!! We are on our THIRD go-thru of the alphabet now and this week’s letter is:
Today you can write a poem about ANY word/thing that starts with the letter “B” OR you can use one of the prompt words that Angel Sammy gave us LAST Thursday for this week – what were they???
(1) Banana (2) Bath (3) Brave or (4) Balloon
Here’s the post Angel Sammy transmitted to me on my computer overnight!!!
Hello My Sweet Friends! Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge! I wrote my poem last night and sent it to Teddy to share with you today – I hope you wrote a “B” poem too! Remember you can write about anything you want starting with a “B” or you can use one of my prompts. I’m using the prompt “Bath”!
By Angel Sammy Kimmell 6-22-17
Some cats really love to get wet
But drinking from my bowl is as close as I’d get!
The first day I came to live in my house
When I was tiny – small as a mouse!
Mom said at the shelter I’d gotten quite stinky….
So she got baby shampoo and a cloth and put me in the sinky!
She washed me gently but I was VERY unhappy
She tried to clean me quickly and make it snappy!
She rinsed me off and sat with me on the floor
She kissed me and said that I was stinky no more!
A nice warm towel and Moms lap both felt good
I knew I’d landed in a GREAT neighborhood…….
That bath was the ONLY one that I ever had
I kept myself immaculate and never was bad
I kept my furs neat and clean as can be
Right up to the day that my soul was set free………
(p.s. we don’t need baths at the Bridge!!!!)
I hope all of you wrote a poem today to share with us – you can put it in the comments here on the blog OR give us the link to your “B” poem in my comments and we’ll follow you to read it!! Next week we will do a “C” poem……………..you can write about ANYTHING starting with the letter “C” or you can use one of next week’s PROMPTS from me here at the Bridge – ready? Here they are:
(1) Car (2) Camera (3) Cookie (4) Carpet
OK? I hope to see you next week – I’ll have another poem direct from the Rainbow Bridge for you and I hope you have something to share with all of us too! Until then:
Love and Light From Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy…………..I like your poem. Know what? Even though Mom and Dad got me from the same shelter they did NOT give me a bath when they got me home that first day – I guess I wasn’t stinky!!!!
See You All Next Thursday!
