Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Time for us to concentrate on what we have to be thankful for……………………..then we’ll talk poetry with Angel Sammy. As for thankfuls – well – we continue to be healthy and as anyone who pays attention to the news knows, the virus is running rampant so we’re very thankful we are still FINE here. Mom and Dad are home all the time except during senior hour at the grocery on Sunday when the doors open (Mom’s the only person in the store!!!!). Are they tired of the routine? No. The most important thing is that they are OK. There’s going to be another surge of virus after so many people thought they’d just have the usual Thanksgiving with family and friends over – little or no social distancing and heaven forbid wearing a mask. Anyway, PLEASE ALL STAY SAFE and DO THE RIGHT THING.    We love you and don’t want to lose any of you.

Angel Sammy says all of the Angels at Rainbow Bridge are watching over us – they can’t make us be smart or make the right choices but they can be with us 24/7 in spirit.     Angel Sammy sent us his poetic blog post for today – are you ready?


Hello Everyone………Ready for some Poetry?

Poetry lightens the load and is good for the soul……………so if you have NEVER written a poem before – please give it a try.   You might surprise yourself!    There are a lot of different forms of poetry and many of them don’t even rhyme.   Some are VERY short too…………so be brave – you may find you enjoy poetry more than you think you will.

I gave you an interesting photo last week to use as poetic inspiration.    Mom says she got email afterwards that many people have never been in a Fun House at a carnival.    I think a lot of people think they’re scary.    She told me that some of them ARE a little scary but some of them are just good fun.    Here’s the photo I gave you and my poem follows:

“Fright or Fun?”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©December 2, 2020


They call it the Fun House but who’s to say?

Some see the unknown as going either way!

Will it be SCARY or will it be FUN?

Probably both for almost everyone.

Some people walk by and hear only screams

Whatever is in there may cause bad dreams!

There’s only one way to conquer this unknown…..

Put on a brave face and enter the Fun House zone!


My Mom says most of the carnivals she went to that had a Fun House WERE fun………….nothing scary………….the scary stuff was in the “Haunted House” or “Ghost Ride” at the carnival.   Fun house was tame – some things pretty silly but at least you came out with a smile.

I have a photo for you to use for next week’s poetic efforts…………………I hope you can have some fun with it!

Oh boy – this will be a fun one………………we’re sticking with the Christmas theme………….I imagine there’s a lot of activity right about now in Santa’s Workshop don’t you?     Let’s see what you come up with for next Thursday and I’ll look forward to seeing you all again then!

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Love, Angel Sammy


So happy to read your poem and message Angel Sammy.   Don’t worry – I’m taking good care of Mom and Dad……………..and they are taking great care of yours truly!     I’ll see you next week dear Sammy.    

Hugs, Teddy

  1. He is scary in a way, Angel Sammy, I think we just have to get in so we will know😸We’re Thankful that you’re all healthy and that your site looks bigger. Now we can read a lot better than before 😀 You make a sweet little Santa Claws, Teddy💗Pawkisses for a wonderful week ahead to all of you🐾😽💞
    Oh and before I forget again, here’s my linky


  2. I have been in the fun houses and the scary ones. I remember the scary ones but not so much about the fun houses. But that clown would do me in! It looks like “fright” to me. I think your poem says it all. Santa and his elves will make for interesting and festive poems! Good Morning! 48 here this morning, 8 degrees warmer than yesterday morning! 76 for the high today. It has been beautiful here for three days. Had a long walk yesterday afternoon.


  3. Dad says the carnivals were a lot of fun and you saw all kinds of things. Ahhh the good old days. We really like your poem Sammy and are really glad we are safe too. We wonder about all that is going on but keep ourselves safe and hope for the best. Purrs buddy


  4. Wow, an overworked St Claus
    Is in need of extra paws!
    Would he give us just a chance
    And then visit us in FRANCE?
    He can’t work on all stuff
    Without help life will get rough
    So we’re heading to his shop
    And we’ll work until we DROP!


  5. Mom goes in the stores with a short list and a speedy run. She never stays in any store longer than 15 minutes. She has tried going to the early hours for the vulnerable only but finds there are way too many other people in the store who really shouldn’t be. Oh well, everyone has to eat:)

    That photo for next week looks a lot like one of the Christmas puzzles Mom is planning to do.

    • I think maybe we might be a little bit lucky that we live in a pretty small town. People have been good about “only senior hour” at our grocery but even then often Mom is the ONLY person shopping that early!!! Everyone else sleeps in. Mom is there when the doors open at 6AM and knows the store so well she zips through with a week’s worth of groceries in no time! It’s too bad that people who shouldn’t be in your stores ARE.

      Hugs, Teddy


  6. Angel Sammy, as always, wrote a stellar poem. Mom just did a little haiku, as we had so many thankfuls this week. We sure wish people wouldn’t be stupid, stay home, wear a mask and social distance. The death toll from the virus is just unacceptable. So happy your humans are smart and remain healthy. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer


    • I am very proud of my Mom and Dad like you all are of your Mom and Dad that they are STAYING SAFE and wearing masks and not traveling. It’s the least we can all do to keep things from going crazy and in the scheme of things, an IMPORTANT thing to do. I’m sure they will continue to do the right things because they CARE!!

      Love, Teddy


  7. Great poem! Angel Sammy and Teddy, my mom says she’s never been to a fun house and doesn’t care for clones much. She’s been to lots of Haunted Houses, though. One of her favs was at Disney World.


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
