Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday!   We’ve made it to the week before Christmas and I’m sure everyone is really focusing now on the things they are thankful for………….I know we are.   If you are and want to share, why not join us in the Hop hosted by Brian?   Just click his badge above and join in.   Tell us your thankfuls.

I’m thankful that even though the presents keep arriving all wrapped up and ready to go under the Christmas tree, they AREN’T.   What?  Huh?   Yes that’s right, they aren’t going under the tree because Mom and Dad have decided that since I love being under there so much, they will put the presents out AWAY from the tree.   There are only TWO under it and they don’t interfere with me lying on the train track OR on the tree skirt.   I’ve got the whole cozy “under tree” campsite to myself!    Thankful I will be until the tree gets packed up again well after the holiday is over.    I’m also thankful for all the wonderful cards that are coming in – MOST OF THEM ARE FOR ME!   That’s because I’m a Cat Scout and we exchange cards for Christmas.    You know if you are a cat and want to have a whole lot of fun – join CAT SCOUTS because it’s GREAT.

I’m also very thankful that Angel Sammy’s email arrived on schedule and that I can share it with you as I do every week.   He always says that he hopes more people will write a poem and join in the fun but we ARE thankful that those of you who DO write one, continue with it.   You are (we think) enjoying it as much as we do.

Here it is!


Happy Almost Christmas Friends!

Gosh it won’t be long now until all of you will see what having been such good boys and girls this past year will bring you from Santa!    You have been good right?   I hope so – I have been but we don’t do anything BUT good things when we’re at the Bridge.    I keep my little brother Teddy on the GOOD path like a big brother would do too so I’m sure Santa Paws will be visiting him next week.

Meanwhile, it’s of course time for us to share some poetry.   Did you write one this week using the photo I gave you as inspiration?   We sure had a lot of comments about the photo and the little girl visiting Santa.   It even prompted my Mom to share the old photo of her meeting Santa for the first time.   I’m sure every child reacts differently but here are so many cute photos out there of visits with Santa.    Anyway, the photo was fun to do a poem about and we hope you will share yours with us either in comments or give us a link in comments to follow and read your poem OK?  OK!  


Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    December 19, 2018

I’m still not so sure about a lot of things

Like what time is my nap and do angels have wings?

Like why do I have to have a bath and why can’t I walk?

Like when will I finally be able to talk?

Like why did Mom sit me here on the lap of this stranger?

Like can I trust this guy or am I in danger?

Like how can he have so much hair and I’m hairless?

Like was this a mistake or was Mom just being careless?

Then he opened his mouth and his words were so lyrical

I didn’t even mind that his tummy was so spherical!

“Hello little beauty, what can Santa bring you this year?”

I knew he’d not understand my baby talk but I whispered in his ear…..

“DaDaMaMaGaGaaaaaa” and he giggled out loud

He kissed the top of my head, his beard was soft as a cloud……

I might have been scared when I first saw this man

But if anyone can fix this world, I hope Santa can!


Tee Hee……that was a lot of fun to write and I hope you enjoyed it.   I also hope you wrote a poem for this darling photo too!!     You’ll have another chance to write a poem to share next Thursday too because I have a photo to show you NOW that will be your inspiration for next week.    Ready?

I bet we all have some fun with this one!     Meanwhile, speaking of fun, may I wish all of you my dear friends a most HAPPY and joyous holiday.   Fun of fun, but also full of thoughts of what Christmas is REALLY all about.   Don’t lose sight of it – when you do lose sight of the reason for the season, we truly all will be lost.

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

All the Rainbow Angels join me in sending you hugs….and forever love……  

Angel Sammy


Gosh thanks Angel Sammy.    I wish you and I could spend this Christmas under the tree together……………………See all of you next week!!   Remember – write a poem – you’ll be glad you did!

Christmas hugs for everyone!    Teddy

    • Cupcake I’m sure what felt like a death grip was one of those famous “INTENSE” Santa Claws hugs! I hope he mentioned what a GOOD girl you’ve been and how anxious he was to bring you lots of great treats???????

      Hugs, Teddy


  1. Hi Teddy, the photo for next week is beautiful!

    I’m thankful because the bipeds are on holiday after today until next year. I don’t know what they have planned, so I stopped by to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

  2. That was a great poem for that funny photo! Teddy, I love laying under the tree too and we won’t put presents under ours either. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


  3. Sammy…you have made me so glad this morning reading what you wrote and especially your dear wish for us and the love you expressed. Our love right back sweet boy and to the rest of your family too. XXXXXXXX

    • Katie, I hope you and your Mommy have an AMAZING holiday together – try to let her breathe at night – that’s kind of important – other than that, you two have lots of snuggly fun for the holiday!!!!

      Hugs, Teddy


    • Mom put my packages in my stocking on the mantel so they are too HIGH UP for me to peek. Darn. My Mom also wants to visit that cottage in the photo for next week’s poem…..I kind of think I’d like it there too!

      Hugs, Teddy


  4. That was a cute poem ,Santa’s belly is spherical 🙂 Teddy, you are lucky to have such caring folks that cater to you. None of my cats are sleeping under the tree this year, I wonder why? XO


  5. Love the photo for next week. The poem was very sweet for today, Angel Sammy! I like your Mom’s picture with Santa the best, ya know. We are having scary weather today and tonight and tomorrow. Used the time to get my blog back up and kinda running. Found a theme I liked and I know who I am, and the blog isn’t parked no more. BUT, why do we bother making our blogs all pretty and cute when everyBODY uses the Reader. I guess cause we do it for ourselves! Glad you have your space under the tree, Teddy!


    • I’m the exception to the rule – I don’t use the Reader. It didn’t work very well for me when I first started blogging as my internet connection was slow. I got used to hopping around and when my connection improved and I tried the Reader again I found I preferred hopping around under my own steam. One of the things I like is seeing the blogs how they’re meant to look.

    • Mom and I have never used the Reader – we like SEEING the blogs…..if you just use the Reader you miss out on some fun things visually. But at least they have a Reader if you’re in a hurry but want to catch up!!! Isn’t that photo for next week very cool?? My Mom wants to move there. I think I’d approve of that – looks like some great yard to explore!!! Glad to hear your blog is up and running again – we have missed your photos and thoughts (even though we get to see/hear them in email!!!!).

      Happy Christmas to ALLLLLLLLL!!!!!
      Love, Teddy


  6. That was sweet of your Mom & Dad to clear out your area under the tree, Teddy ! And it’s nice that you are enjoying Angel Sammy’s train !


    • I do love lying on the railroad track….I suppose that might have something to do with the fact that if I’m on the track Dad can let the noisy train go around and around (!!) but I’m not confessing to that!!

      Hugs, Teddy


  7. That is a lovely poem from Angel Sammy. Santa looks kindly and the child needn’t be scared.
    Next week’s picture looks like a lovely place.


    • I think that little girl just isn’t quite sure WHAT to think hence the apprehensive little frown. As she gets a little older that frown will go away and she will be SO EXCITED! I can remember that feeling even though it was a VERY LONG TIME AGO! The photo for next week – what a great cottage – I’d LOVE to live there…….

      Hugs, Pam


    • I think so too Summer….it’s rather magical under there with the lights and stuff. Mom calls me her “ginger present under the tree”. I hope you and your humans have a wonderful holiday too my friend.

      Hugs, Teddy


  8. There are no presents under our tree yet either, but we think it may have something to do with nibbling teeth:) Not that we have anything to do with that:)

    We did love your poem and we hope Santa can make our world a whole lot more peaceful.

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber


    • You’d think our humans don’t TRUST us with presents – or in my case even though I love being under the tree would I lie on top of a present and squish it??? No!!!!! Well maybe……..

      Love and Hugs, Teddy


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
