Happy Thursday everybody………..the Bunny is probably busy putting all those Easter baskets together by now. BUSY BUSY. Better him than me is all I say! Maybe that’s a good thing to be THANKFUL for – that I’m NOT the Bunny and NOT working my tail (haha) off getting ready for Easter. If you’d like to share things you’re thankful for – just click Brian’s badge and join in the THANKFUL THURSDAY BLOG HOP like we did!!!
I’m also thankful Angel Sammy sent me his usual Thursday message and poem……………..ready?
Happy Almost Easter Poetry Day!
I hope all of you are ready for Easter. I remember when I lived with Mom and Dad one of their traditions was my Mom hiding Easter Eggs for my Dad. Talk about hilarious – he was like a little kid…………he has a basket and Mom hides the eggs all around the basement (which was MY territory) – then he goes around and tries to find them. Mom makes some easy and some hard to find. But I was always with her in the wee hours of the morning when she was hiding them and I remembered where she put them. So when Dad came downstairs to find them, I’d cheat and show him where some of them were! HAHAHAHAHAHA
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy your Easter celebrations whatever they may be.
I have my poem to share with you today and I am hoping that lots of you wrote a poem as well – inspired by the photo I gave you last Thursday. I try to find interesting and fun photos for you – things I think might be lots of fun to write a poem about. This week’s photo is so cute. Mom smiles real big (I see her!) when she looks at the photo. She loves squirrels. So, here’s the photo from last week and my poem – if you wrote one, let us know in comments so we can go read it!
“Built-In Grocery Basket”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©April 17, 2019
This guy doesn’t need “paper or plastic”
He’s been blessed with a built-in grocery basket!
To cut down on trips to retrieve the treasure
He stuffs them in his mouth which is made to measure!
Those storage bins in his adorable cheeks
Hold enough nuts for at least a week!
“Pardon me lady, for stuffing my face
but I’m glad that I found you on this park bench place!”
When he gets home his wife will be happily hopping
As she hugs him and says “Thanks for doing the Easter shopping!”
I think this squirrel is picture-perfect! Mom and Dad have TONS and TONS of squirrels around as they live surrounded by lots and lots of big trees. I know Teddy enjoys watching all the squirrels – especially when the little ones are playing up in the trees. It’s a little nerve-racking though because there are also a LOT of hawks around and my Mom always worries when they swoop down to try and catch a squirrel. Everybody has to eat – we know that – but Mom always wishes the squirrels well because they seem to be such happy critters.
Now – ready for the photo I found for you to use as inspiration for NEXT week’s poem? Give some thought to maybe writing a poem with us to share next Thursday OK? We want to give a BIG shout out to Marv’s Mom Miss Barb for participating for the first time LAST Thursday! Thanks for having fun with us! Everyone is invited!
Oh I love this one too!!!! Can’t wait to work on a poem for this one to share with you next Thursday. You’d better get to work too!!! Meanwhile, have a very happy Easter. We’re planning an Easter Egg hunt up here at the Rainbow Bridge – the eggs are filled with Catnip!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks for visiting us every week Angel Sammy. I miss you. I know Mom and Dad do too as they talk about you almost every day – but I don’t mind – we’re forever brothers!
