Another Thursday and you know what that means – time for us to gather at Brian’s and talk about what we’re thankful for this past week. Want to join in? Click the badge above and link up. These days we need to remind ourselves AND each other of all the blessings we DO have – not the ones we can’t find anymore!
Good health, beautiful Fall weather, not having to go to the Kitty Hotel this year because Mom and Dad didn’t take vacation…………those are my three biggies this week. Actually I had my yearly checkup at the vet yesterday and – my ears have been bothering me lately and he cleaned them out really well then dosed me up with some meds which I have to endure twice a week for four weeks. Then back for a re-check. Ever since I was adopted at the shelter I’ve had ear issues…………..some of us are just like that I guess. But I am GRATEFUL to have such a wonderful vet. I trust him.
Mom and Dad are doing great – masks/distancing/staying home. I’ve got THEM under control even if my ears aren’t under control. HAHA I will now share Angel Sammy’s email from last night and his poem!
Hi Friends! Ready to share some poetry?
Those of us here at Rainbow Bridge sure get a big kick out of watching all the activity down there at Halloween time. Some of you are really “game” for costumes – I would always give Mom that “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” look but did allow some scarves and my green beret. Forget costumes though!
Anyway, let’s talk poetry shall we? If you wrote one this week let us know in comments so we can go to your blog and read it. Here’s the photo I gave you last week for this week’s poem AND my poem.
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©October 21, 2020
Once upon a time this sport was king
People joined clubs and teams and won trophy bling!
I know people still bowl but it’s not quite the same
Bowling was fun but these days seems quite tame!
Back in the old days ladies would get dressed up to bowl
No doubt getting runs in their stockings would take quite a toll
They sure don’t wear pearls these days to go with their jeans
But they still have a blast these modern Bowling Queens!
These days the music blares, the lights flash and the alleys shine like glass
Still as fancy as they look, you can still fall on your……..rear!!!!!
HAHA – sorry about that – I couldn’t resist more than a little humor. My Mom was in a bowling league and her team actually went to the State Championship once. Sadly (she says) they partied the night before the BIG GAME and none of them bowled worth a darn. They had fun but did NOT bring home a trophy! Also, many alleys have closed up long ago – the one in our town closed several years ago and there are no plans to re-open. Who knows though – nostalgia is big so maybe one day – like drive-in movies – bowling will again be KING!
I have a photo for you for next week’s poem sharing event……………here it is:
Whoa – those were the good old days…..look at all the room in those seats! Everyone dressed up in suits and hats? Huh? Anyway, this one will be FUN.
Until next week when we meet again – please take care of yourselves and your humans………………..OK? It’s our job!
Love forever from the Rainbow Bridge – Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy – You can trust me to take care of Mom and Dad………………………I miss you!!
