Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thankful Thursday.     Brian is our host every week and if you’d like to join in the Hop, click his badge above and link up with us.    There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for.

First of all I’m happy Brian is feeling better (hear that big guy???) – sounds like you are in a better place than you’ve been in a while with your health.  That makes everyone happy for sure.    Another thankful for me this week is that my Mom and Dad DID return to the pet hotel to pick me up when they got back from their vacation in Maine.   We never know for sure do we until they turn up and we’re released from prison the cage.     Truthfully I was spoiled rotten by the folks at the hotel and I’ve been there before and loved it.    My Mom and Dad also had a wonderful and PERFECT break and they are thankful for that.

Angel Sammy gave us a whole extra week to work on our poems since we didn’t have a Thankful Thursday last week…………..let’s see what he has to say shall we?


Hi Poetry Fans!  We’re BAAACK!

I was happy that Teddy enjoyed his stay at the pet hotel and that my Mom and Dad had a little break in routine while they enjoyed four days in Maine last week.    No doubt they didn’t want to come home (hahaha).    Before I came to the Bridge I was the one who used to stay in the same pet hotel that Teddy stayed in while Mom and Dad went to Maine and Europe too!     

Everyone being off meant ALL of us got an extra week to work on our poem – I gave you the photo to use as inspiration and you had extra time to craft your poem.    Here’s the photo we all used followed by my poem.

“Bumper Crop”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©October 20, 2021

As if six babies weren’t enough

This lady has a dog – she’s truly tough!

It looks like everyone is keeping calm

Kids and dog and even Mom!

Motoring along getting fresh air

When you see this crew you’d stop to stare

Taking care of this bunch has to be a bit tough

But when they’re teenagers its gonna be really ROUGH!


Hard to imagine six babies at one time but I’m sure Dad is helping and maybe even a big sister or brother or Aunt……..or kindly neighbor.    Has to be a handful !    I thought it was a fun photo and I hope you had fun crafting your poem with this photo as inspiration.    Here’s what I found for all of us to use for NEXT week’s poem – with apologies to the fashion industry of course!

Yeah – I know – you don’t have to say a word…………..I can read your mind.    It should make for some fun poetry though right?    We’ll find our NEXT Thursday!  I’ll see you again then my poetic friends.   AND don’t forget if you wrote a poem for the baby stroller photo, please tell us in COMMENTS and give us a LINK so we can read it!    

Have a great week………………………

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

Love always, Angel Sammy


Good job on your poem this week my Angel Brother…………….and next week – holy cow – our Mom saw those shoes and her feet started hurting!   HAHAHA    She can’t even wear shoes with LOW heels anymore much less something like this.    I wish I could have that thing on her head for a toy – I’d have fun dragging that around the house.   See you next week………………

  1. We didn’t do a poem this week ~ but next? Is that Chiquita Banana, Chiquita Rivera or the veggie aisle at the supermart? Lunch is being served at the end of the runway!

  3. I am speechless…really…next weeks picture struck me speechless. However…loved your poem about the 6 babies! Teddy, you are in your doorway the way I am most days. Aren’t we comfy?


    • Next week’s photo is a rather frightening one isn’t it. I’d get nosebleeds in those heels but then I doubt I could even walk one step in them without crashing! The hair looks like a disaster zone. HAHAHA

      Hugs, Pam


  4. Those are very nice thankfuls and thank you for the kind words, I am feeling lots better. That was a cute poem too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thrusday Blog Hop!


  5. Please forgive us for not writing a poem. Mom was just too exhausted and upset after yesterday’s ordeal. Next week’s poems ought to be a blast with that photo! Our mom is happy your mom and dad and you got to have a nice vacation. Love to all. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet


    • You know we understand when people can’t be poetic for WHATEVER reason but you sure did have your hands full – again. Hopefully today will be a bit more CALM! Sending HUGS………….

      Love, Teddy


    • Yes indeed – I’d say we all made out well. Maine was such a refreshing break after pretty much being “in isolation” for over a year. We got out obviously but we sure needed a bit of a change of pace and scenery and although it was just four days, it was like being in a whole new world. We feel like a million bucks now! Teddy has finally forgiven us too. LOL

      Hugs, Pam
