Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Hi All!  Thursday is here – time for THANKFULS with Brian as well as POEMS with Angel Sammy.    First though is THANKFULS and if you have some you’d like to share in Brian’s Blog Hop just click his badge above and link up with us.

I’m super thankful that today my Mom is driving up to W. Virginia to visit her sister who she hasn’t seen in person since pre-pandemic.   It will be her sister’s birthday on the 26th so they’ll celebrate that along with just plain being together again.    I’m ALSO thankful that Mom will come home after her visit – I miss her when she’s not here!    Dad will take good care of me of course and I’m THANKFUL I have him to fill in for Mom when she’s gone.

I’m also thankful for the incredible weather we were “gifted” with after days and days of icky weather – hot, sticky, humid, overcast, rainy – yuck.   Yesterday was incredible and today is too!

We also are sending our love and hugs and hopes for a good report for our wonderful friend and fellow blogger Miss Jackie from TWODEVONCATS.    Jackie is in the hospital having had some heart issues and we pray she’ll be home SOON!    You can visit her blog to leave a message for her and we thank Miss Ann of Zoolatry for making this terrific badge.


Next we’ll see what Angel Sammy sent for his Poetic Thursday post!


Hello from the Bridge!

Happy Poetic Thursday everybody………… about we start off with a BANG and show you what the photo was that I gave you last week to use as inspiration for today’s Poetic Thursday sharing!!!!    Below the photo is my poem and I hope you like it.

“Where Do I Start?”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©June 23, 2021

“Hungry as a horse” – we’ve all heard that one before

So how about this sandwich – could you ask for more?

The only problem I see is that this creation is gigantic

You’d need a drink to wash it down about the size of the Atlantic

But gosh it sure looks good – from the bottom to the top

To finish it off I’m thinking a week of eating totally non-stop

Bacon, burgers, cheese, ham and I also see some chicken

A giant case of heartburn – I’m sure that I’d be stricken!

In the end though I think I’d say it was a masterful creation –

Suppose this is available from a fast food place somewhere in this nation?????


Gosh that sandwich is amazing.    Mom wants the top layer – appears to be a bacon cheese burger…………..I’ll take the mid-section because I see HAM!     Anyway, this is quite a sandwich and I hope you had as much fun as I did creating a poem around it.    

Now for next week’s photo…………… it is – we’ll meet next Thursday and see what we all wrote for this one, which by the way is a fabulous photo of an OLD Irish Pub:

Should be fun………..!  

See you next Thursday everybody and in the meantime – Love one another and stay safe………………….

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

Love Forever, Angel Sammy


Thanks for another awesome poetic experience Angel Sammy.    Mom really loves the photo you gave everybody for next week – she and Dad saw several places just like this when they visited Ireland.    Brings back memories she says.

Hugs, Teddy

  1. Wow, that burger sure is a deluxe model!! Open WIDE!!

    Maybe it needs to go on its side and then get attacked with a knife and fork…or shared with other nommers!! And that pub, well, I can see there are lots of choices to wash down that burger delight!

    I have been taking some (online) classes for my work,, so I forgot to compose a ditty for this week…


  2. A most excellent poem, Angel Sammy! One of my favorite foods. I think I would just choose the top bacon cheeseburger like your Mom… we had cheeseburgers last night! Maybe there is a fried grouper layer in there. Teddy, since the weather is so pretty in Virginieeee maybe you can get your Dad to take you out a few times today while your Mom visits her Sis and celebrates her Sis’s birthday!


    • Great job Ann! I just knew this photo would be a fun one for all of us to write a poem for – – – next week’s is a “boozy doozy” too!!!!!! Thanks for playing along with us on Thursdays!

      Love, Pam (and Teddy too)


  3. Prayers for Jackie. Happy Birthday to your mom’s sister. Have fun. Great poem and that burger makes me drool. Ha,ha,ha. Enjoy your day.


    • I bet Miss Dingleberry would be happy to include this on the menu at school – don’t be too surprised to see it one day just so we can see how many people actually GET ONE! HAHAHA

      Hugs, Teddy


  4. Angel Sammy while we were away last week Dad of Angel Madi had a similar burger at the Bluffs.
    It was only one layer though but it had bacon and GET this Pimento Cheese. I probably should have snapped a photo but I was too busy eating my chicken salad sammich.
    Thanks as always for the wonderful pictures and I hope Mom and Aunty Carol have a lovely visit

    Liked by 1 person

    • Mom had a fabulous time with Aunty Carol yesterday – they had breakfast and lunch together before Mom came home to ME and Dad. I think it was a most special thing that they got to spend time with each other after over a year of not being able to but you can say that for EVERYONE who is finally seeing family and friends safely now!!!!

      Hugs, Teddy and Angel Sammy too
