Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday.    I wish I could say today that I’m THANKFUL that my good friend Sawyer from The Cat On My Head has returned home after running away a few days ago but I can’t.   He’s still missing.   It’s very sad and scary for his Mom and Dad and all of us who love him because he has a seizure disorder and needs medication.    His family are doing EVERYTHING to try and find him and get the word out.   Please take a second to say a quick prayer for him to return.     I thank you for that!

I am thankful that we have some rain in our forecast after several days of incredibly ICKY heat.   It’s even too hot for ME and you know how much I love being outside!!!    Mom and Dad come out with me when I want to go and it’s been pretty miserable for them – – – they can’t crawl under a shrub for a shade nap like I can.    HAHAHA

I got Angel Sammy’s poem for this week though – I’m thankful for that – and I’m happy to share it with all of you poets out there!


Hello Poetic Friends !

Here we are again on a Thursday sharing the poems we wrote this past week based on the photo I gave you last Thursday for inspiration – FUN FUN FUN!     I know all of us have been quite distracted (yes even the Angels at the Bridge) with worrying about Sawyer and hoping he’d come back to his family in Roanoke, VA but you know as much as we would like to “make it happen” even Angels can’t do that.    We WOULD if we COULD.

Anyway, I wrote a poem which I’m going to share with you……………and then give you another photo to use as inspiration for NEXT week’s poetry day!

“What’ll It Be?”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©June 30, 2021


There’s NO doubt about it

We’re not afraid to shout it

Whatever is your favorite drink

It’s here on our shelves – don’t you think?

I can tell you this for sure

It takes HOURS to give a tour !



I bet it does – I’ve never EVER seen anything like this and Mom and Dad who visited many a pub in their travels through Europe don’t remember a pub like this one!   We tried to find the name of this one but only discovered that the image we had taken from the internet is a copy of an available print from “Johnny Griffin”.     There are a number of pubs claiming to be “THE OLDEST PUB” though and whether or not this is the oldest it’s certainly got quite an array of “overstuffed shelves” !     If you wrote a poem for this image, please tell us in comments so we can read it!

Now how about a photo for next week?    One of my Mom and Dad’s favorite places in the entire world.    I think there’s some good poetry that could be written for this photo!

Yep – this one is perfect……….My Mom and Dad think they may have eaten dinner on that left bank in the photo in fact……………..during that dinner Mom asked my Dad if they could have a night time gondola ride – after all – it was their honeymoon.   This isn’t THEIR photo but they did take a night gondola ride and YES their gondolier sang beautiful songs to them.    Memorable – oh yeah.    Have fun with this one!

That’s it for me this week…………………..please continue to pray that missing kitty “Sawyer” from The Cat On My Head returns home………..he’s missed, loved and very much worried about. 

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

Love and Light, Angel Sammy


As always Angel Sammy – a very cool poem for last week’s photo.     I am so happy that you still visit us with your poetry – please never stop!

Hugs, Teddy

  1. I can imagine the pain and sorrow that is always present now in Sawyers home. His missing is a nightmare for them.


  2. I have been praying for Sawyer several times a day. I hope he gets home safely soon. Cute poem and how cool that your folks got to go on a gondola ride. Have a nice day. XO


  3. Angel Sammy well done on that poem. It was a tricky one.
    Next week’s photo OMCs the images it will create in everyone’s mind’s eye
    I am so very sorry about Sawyer. I sure was hoping he was somewhere near by maybe under some shrubs and would come home.
    Hugs Cecilia


  4. Great poem. Angel Sammy! When we were last in Venice that looks like the place where there was a wedding reception taking place. What could be more romantic!
    Like everyone, I am so worried about Sawyer.


    • That would be a great spot for a wedding reception……..Mom says she’s pretty sure that restaurant is the one where they had dinner one night – she thinks the FIRST night they were in Venice maybe.


  5. We are all praying and purring for Sawyer’s safe return.

    It has been so hot today in Scotland. This last weeks has been lovely. Rain forecast for tomorrow though!


  6. We hope that heat takes off soon Teddy. Sammy it was such fun flying down with you and reading all the poems. I keep telling the Dad to get on the stick with them but you know how parents are. We are purring for Sawyer, Hard!


    • I think everyone has Sawyer on their mind – I can be doing laundry or housecleaning or driving to the store or walking down to get the mail and I think about him and hope he’s alright. Every morning I check email to see if Janet has written to say HE’S HOME. Glad you liked Angel Sammy’s poem AND the photo he found for us for next week. He’s a good “photo picker” !!

      Hugs, Pam


  7. That is a pretty cool photo, and as always, Teddy did a great job with his poem. Mom says she had no idea there were so many different kinds and brands of alcohol. We hope it is okay that Mom’s poem was not about the inspiration photo. We really appreciate all the prayers and support of us and our search for Sawyer. You are wonderful friends, and we love you dearly. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy & Kizmet

  9. We continue to hope and pray dear Sawyer is found. Being way to familiar with seizures and the need for timely medication, we can only imagine the anguish Sawyer’s parents are feeling. We hope he’ll be found safe soon. 🤞🏼


    • It does – people think those are innocent gondolas but they have man-eating-otter catching nets underneath and float around Venice to capture otters so they don’t molest (and not in a good way) the touristos!


  10. sam o bacon; yur poem thiz week rox !!! noe doubt thatz a lot oh… al coe hall !!! ♥♥♥

    ted on nator we hope ewe haaz sound proof room for SUNday and stay safe ♥♥♥

    lookin for one hundred bottlez oh beer ♫♪♫♫
    they pushed thoz bottlez two de ground ♪♪
    guezz what… they found noe beer ♫♪♫♪



    • I sang along! Cats push everything off of shelves and they could do some REAL DAMAGE in that Pub that’s for sure. Purrrrsonally I’m not a beer man – gimme a niptini any old time over a brewski.

      Good job on your poem!!! Yeah I’m hoping maybe the fireworks Sunday won’t be too crazy – there’s one guy in this neighborhood who starts his backyard display at 9PM and doesn’t stop until the stroke of midnight. Makes my Mom and Dad grouchy.

      Hugs, Ted O Nator the Detonator
