Hi everybody. Happy Thankful Thursday. I think if you’re reading this blog post as well as all the other “Thankful” posts hooking up to Brian’s Hop today, you will see that in spite of all the turmoil these days, a lot of us are very thankful. I continue to be thankful that my Mom and Dad and everyone we know is so far healthy and taking all the proper precautions to stay that way. Mom got an order of paper masks today AND some cloth ones that take filters – so she’s thankful they came. My Dad is thankful for the new DVDs he and Mom ordered which they are using to pass the time in the evenings after dinner………….some favorite British mysteries. So yes we are THANKFUL here. Also THANKFUL that Brian hosts this wonderful hop every week.
My Angel Brother Sammy wrote his weekly letter which contains his poem for Poetic Thursday too. Hope you wrote a poem for last week’s photo too! Here’s what HE had to say…..
Hello From The Rainbow Bridge My Friends!
I’m happy to see that you are all doing fine……………..that means all our prayers are being answered and everyone is patiently waiting out the “storm” from the virus. Hopefully all of you have family and friends who are doing the right thing to stay safe and healthy. We don’t have the virus up here at the Bridge but that doesn’t mean we aren’t “involved” as your Angels. Oh yes – it’s a full time job keeping those we love safe.
But I had time to write a poem this week to go with the photo I gave you all LAST week as inspiration. Did you write one? If you did let us know in our comments so we can read it! Here’s last week’s photo and my poem:
Never have we seen such a strange and lonely sight
Like the entire place was abandoned overnight
Fact is it was never even occupied
I’m sure the financier and builder must have cried!
They look like they all came out of a “house machine”
All facing the same way on tiny lots – no space between
A strange sight this makes – so bereft of life
Like the Chef ran out of icing for his pastry knife!
Absolutely the strangest housing development EVER…………if you really would like more of the story, you can CLICK HERE. I can’t wait to read YOUR poems…………….and I also can’t wait to show you the photo I found for all of us to use as NEXT Thursday’s photographic inspiration for another poem. You have a whole week to think about what you want to write!
My goodness – times have changed in the “bathing beauty” swimsuit competitions haven’t they. Anyway, fun photo and I bet we can come up with some fun poetry for this photo for NEXT Thursday!
In the meantime – please keep your humans happy and safe………………it’s our job!! Whether we’re at the Bridge or side by side with them in life now, we protect and guard them and always will.
Love and Angelic Hugs……….Angel Sammy
Gosh thanks Angel Sammy for keeping an eye on us…………..Mom, Dad and I all feel you with us all the time………………..we thank you for taking care of us always!
