Okee Dokee! It’s Thursday so time to share some thankfuls with each other. If you want to join in this Hop hosted by our buddy Brian, click his badge and fill out the linky form and you’re IN!
Well we had introooooders in the house this morning and it made me realize one thing for sure that I’m thankful for – and that is that we have a nice big three story house with a whole lot of hidey-holes and hidden spots so that when strangers are here, I can find a nice, quiet place to wait until they leave. I’m not shy with people I recognize and even some strangers, but these guys had noisy work uniforms and noisy paper shoe covers and noisy toolboxes and they were coming and going from the front door a LOT. SO I thought I’d forego the usual “WELCOME TO OUR HOUSE” greeting and pick a hidey hole. Know where Mom and Dad found me? INSIDE one of my “cubby holes” on my cat tree. What’s the big deal about that? I love my tree – a LOT – but I’ve never been inside the little boxes with entry holes because I’m TOO BIG. When Mom and Dad came looking for me after the workers left I was stuffed inside one of the cubes with my head sticking out. Dad said “I hope he can get out of there!” and they were pleased to see that while I took up every square inch of space in the cube part, I am wiry and agile enough to unfold myself and squeeze out like a wiggly worm with no problem! They laughed! Imagine that! It’s nice to feel SAFE in my house though.
I’m also thankful Angel Sammy’s email came on time…………I’m sharing it with you below.

Let’s Share Poetry!
Hello friends………….time for us to get together and share the poems we have written that were inspired by the photograph I gave you last week. Oh I look forward to this every week and I hope you do too – AND of course if you’ve not participated before, please give it a try. Short poem or long, any form you like, but you might find it’s a lot of fun to write one with a photo I’ve found as your inspiration!
Here’s last week’s photo – if you’ve written one, please tell us in comments and give us a link to it so we can come read it!!!
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©February 5, 2020
“Hey don’t push or we’ll all fall down!”
This group of meerkats is full of clowns!
A bunch of meerkats is called a MOB
They squish up close like a hairy blob!
They’re in the same family as the cute mongoose
They stay in groups and are rarely on the loose
Many years ago I saw them in a zoo
Moving about in a clump – never fewer than two
They love each other’s company so three’s not a crowd
If they see an eagle they will growl and yell quite loud
All I know is I think they are quite cute
With their raccoon mask eyes and their hairy brown suits
If they are very careful and don’t become an eagle’s prey
They can live ten years full of fun and play.
My Mom has a crush on these little cuties……………from what I’ve read they have a very complex society and to me that means they are smart little animals. Photos of their “babies” are beyond cute. Of course kittens are pretty darn cute too – I know I was!
Now, here’s NEXT WEEK’s photo inspiration – you have a whole week to think of a poem to go with this photo – I think it might be a FUN one!
OK everyone – take your best shot………………..and be here next Thursday to share your poem OK? GO FOR IT! Until then, remember we Angels have our eyes on you 24/7 – you are never alone………we will watch over you always and forever.
Love, Angel Sammy
