Hello Fellow Thankful Peeps!! Yep – it’s Thursday already and time to be thankful. If you’d like to join in the Blog Hop of Thankfuls hosted by our pal Brian, just click their badge above and link up!
We are thankful this week – my Mom and Dad are thankful that they found an Angel Sammy bench for the backyard so they can keep a close eye on me when I’m out lying in the leaves……….and I’m thankful that they continue to let me have as much time outside as I get. No doubt about it, my first year before I went to the shelter OBVIOUSLY was an outdoor year for me. I get very excited when I’m in the fresh air. I guess it must remind me of my “beginnings” !!
It’s wet in this photo – took it while it was raining a week ago – and YES it’s not really an Angel Kitty on the back of this pretty metal bench – it’s an OWL but Mom and Dad are pretending it’s an Angel Kitty…………so we call it The Sammy Bench!
Speaking of Sammy, I have his email from last night’s “Rainbow Bridge” transmission that he sent. I’m so glad his wifi works as well as it does up there! Here’s the poem he did for this past week’s poetic Thursday!
Hello Poetic Friends!!
It’s that day of the week that we gather together and share the poems we’ve written during this past week based on the photo I gave you. I love love LOVE this week’s photo too – my Mom tried really had to find the photo she has of herself as a little girl talking on the phone BUT, my Grandma’s photo box is a mess and Mom couldn’t find it. Suffice it to say, she said back in those days she had TWO imaginary friends that she used to talk to when she played in the yard AND when she talked on the phone. They were named (yes they make no sense) “Dodo” and “Apodee” (pronounced dough-dough). Who knows where THAT came from….not me. Anyway, apparently from what we’ve heard from her Mom when she was alive and her older sister – my Mom would have rather lively conversations with her “friends”. I guess “KIDS WILL BE KIDS” right?
So here’s the photo followed by my poem…………….if you wrote one, let us know in comments so we can read it!

Hi Granny, it’s your favorite little girl
You know me – the one with blonde curls!
When are you coming to visit me please
I love sitting in your lap and riding on your knees!
Will you bring me a new dolly with eyes that close up tight?
So she can get a good sleepy with me in my bed at night!
Will you bring me a penny for my piggy bank?
I’ve been ever so good you know, I haven’t had a spank!
Hurry on over soon because I miss you so
You know I’ll cry REAL BIG when you say you have to go…..
I can’t wait to see you and give you a big kiss
Then when you leave I’ll be sad again cuz my Granny I will miss…………
My Mom rarely saw her Grandmother – in fact, she only had one Grandmother growing up……and she passed away when my Mom was in her early teens. She was always a little bit envious of other kids who had TWO Grannies and got to see them all the time. Grandparents are important people – – – I kind of wonder what kind of cats my Grandparents were – well I suppose I also wonder about my parents as well since I was found under an abandoned house at the ripe old age of about 4 weeks old!!! Guess they forgot to take me when they moved. Maybe because I was too small…………….
Anyway, I can’t wait to see what you wrote this week………….if you’ve never TRIED to write a poem for Poetry Thursday – give it a whirl. I get very excited when someone new joins our little poetry group AND excited when you regulars write a poem as well. It feels good to create one doesn’t it!
Ready to see your photo for NEXT Thursday’s get together????
This will be a good one…….
So, there’s your challenge for next week. Can’t wait to see what you do with it………….and you have a whole week to think about it. I’ll see you next Thursday……..until then, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, BE HAPPY, and of course WRITE A POEM!
Love, Angel Sammy
