YIPPEEEE…………….Thursday – means we can be THANKFUL OUT LOUD on the Thankful Blog Hop courtesy of our host Brian. You can join us – click the badge above and find the link.
Lots to be thankful for this past week. First of all Mom gets her staples out tomorrow from her surgery almost 3 weeks ago. She is doing SO WELL……she graduated from walker to cane to carefully hiking around the living room with no cane during this time. We hope the doc says she’s doing so well she won’t need extensive outpatient therapy at the Ortho Clinic. We’ll find out tomorrow.
We also got SNOW SNOW and SNOW………….not as much as lots of people but ours was beautiful and fluffy and stuck to all the limbs making things look beautiful. I guess overall we might have had 4-5 inches. I am not a “snow baby” like Angel Sammy was but I did go out on the front porch to watch it fall a couple of times. TOO COLD!
I received Angel Sammy’s poem to share with you……………and a photo he found for next week’s Poetry Challenge………
Hi everyone. Hope those of you who got snow don’t blame us at the Rainbow Bridge for forgetting to turn off the SNOW MACHINE this past week. Some of you got WAY TOO MUCH and some got enough for snowmen and some got very little or none. But we didn’t have a thing to do with it! A higher (much) power did! Anyway, plenty of time to write a poem in that time and I hope that you did.
Here’s the photo I gave you all LAST WEEK to write a poem for today………..and my poem after:
“Ready For Action”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©February 3, 2021
These two guys look ready for action
A full saloon would bring satisfaction
Rags at the ready to wipe up the mess
No sign in the photo of a “dolly” in a dress!
Keep the drinks comin’, keep the patrons in line
No bar fights to break up would be just fine!
Running a saloon was a risky endeavor
Avoiding a gunfight meant you HAD to be VERY clever!
No easy job I’m sure being owner of a saloon back in the wild west gunfighter days. Rough places indeed. These two guys look READY for action though don’t they. I loved the look of this photo – and if you peek in the mirror behind the bar you see at least one or two customers are sitting at I assume tables across from the bar enjoying the ambiance (or whiskey) already!
Here’s your photo for NEXT Thursday!
Yikes……wonder what the petrol bill is???? Even bigger question is how do you turn a corner or park? Anyway I thought this might be a fun one for a poem. I hope you give it a try and share your poetry with us on your blog. Leave us your link – we want to read it!!
Have a good week…………..stay safe………………and remember your Rainbow Bridge Angels are watching over you.
Love, Angel Sammy
Love your saloon poem Angel Sammy and I can’t WAIT to see what people come up with for that limo photo…………………..this is a fun thing to do on Thursdays with you! I miss you!
