Thankful and Poetic Thursday


It’s THANKFUL day!     I do have some this week too – thankful the predicted snow didn’t happen (which is the FOURTH TIME it hasn’t)…………thankful that my Mom finally goes to the eye doc tomorrow to talk about scheduling her first cataract surgery (so she can SEE properly again)……..thankful that I weigh 28 lbs. so I can’t possibly blow away in the impossible wind we have EVERY SINGLE DAY anymore.   Usually 30-35mph gusts – I’m an immovable object thankfully!    Thanks Brian for giving us a chance to voice our thankfuls every week.

I’m also thankful that I have Angel Sammy’s poem to share with you today – see below!



It’s Poetry Time!

Hi everybody.   Time for us to share some poetry.    Poetry that WE have written which is special right?    I try to inspire myself and all of you every week by giving you a photograph to use as inspiration for your poem then we share what we’ve done on Thursday.  I look forward to it.  I hope you do too.

Here’s the photo I gave you last week to use for today’s poetry:

This is by the way a REAL driveable vehicle – built upside down.    I know some of you have done some research online to find out more about it.   If you CLICK HERE you can read about it AND there’s a link to a YouTube of him driving it with his pup.   Wild huh? 

So here’s my poem……………………

It Got My Attention!

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©March 8, 2023


I have to say now that I’ve seen it all

I’ve seen the shortest of short and the tallest of tall

The widest and longest and biggest and I must confess

That the upside down vehicle is the best of the best

The man in his vehicle with his pup strapped in tight

Driving along in the sunshine taking in all the sights

But even in my wildest and wackiest imagination

The upside down vehicle is the BIGGEST sensation!


My first thought was “I wonder how many accidents were a result of people gawking at this vehicle on the road as it moved along!!”…………but I’m also certain that a whole lot of people saw it and thought what an amazing machine he had constructed.     If you google upside down vehicles you’ll see that this is not the only one – lots of people have built upside down vehicles.    Anyway, it was a fun photo for a poem.   If you wrote a poem for this one – let us know in comments so we can read it will you?

Here’s your inspiration for next week……………….maybe not as much fun as an upside down vehicle but……..still fun!

OK – first let me say – EEEK.    Secondly let me say this one will be a FUN ONE!     See you next Thursday and we’ll share what we’ve written!!   

Until Then Be Kind, Be Happy, be YOU

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

Love always, Angel Sammy

  1. Lots of thankfuls!! Hope you can get the cataract surgery done so your sight will be restored.

    I’ve been having some eye issues, too…even my new glasses are not helping…hubby wonders if the lens makers got the script messed up…and that has happened to me twice over the years!

    Love your poem…
    Mine was rather clowny…

    Only a clown
    would think of driving
    Upside down!


  2. Poem:
    This man looks so healthy. He certainly doesn’t have scurvy, but he gives new meaning to the words topsy-turvy.
    And Teddy you certainly will not blow away, but we are blown away by your size. Wow!

  4. Teddy, old man winter is not done being cold here. Frozen bird baths every morn but I did have a sun puddle yesterday. I luv ’em. The wind was not so strong Lynn could not open the door fur me. I luv ev-furry thing about your handsome pose. I would jump down from heights but not that high. PSSST, Lynn is terrified of heights. Precious


    • We actually have snow in our forecast today and tomorrow so winter isn’t gone here either but Spring didn’t wait for winter to be gone before it arrived. That means some frozen plants but all the other snow predictions were WRONG so who knows. It’s a challenge!!!!!!!!

      Hugs, Teddy


  5. Teddy, I will follow that link about the vehicle in a while today! Mom has been happily busy, very busy, the entire week so far. She’s grateful for that. She’s outta here by 8 or so…
    You looked so luscious there on the bed How can your mom resist lying there with you, snuggled in.

  7. As always, Teddy did a great job with his poem. It definitely was a crazy photo…but next week, no way. That girl is actually on a cruise ship. Mom wrote a silly poem to go with the goofy car photo:
    We are definitely going to check out some of the other upside down cars. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh


  8. Good luck with cataract surgery. I had it last year and I can see even better than I did before the cataracts. I’m loving it!


    • We had that “flip thing” when we FOUND that photo for next week – can NOT imagine jumping that high into a pool on a ship. CRAY-Z !!!!!!!!!

      If you google “upside down vehicles” you will be surprised how many there actually are – happily we’ve never seen one on the road around here!

      Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam


    • My Mom is anxious to get rid of all the issues – clouds/blurring, etc. Yesterday’s visit went fine – next week she goes for lens measurements – then I guess it will be surgery! I’ll be her nurse here at home!

      Hugs, Teddy


  9. That car is really weird! That girl is really brave diving from that height! When I was a lot younger I used to go on Plymouth Hoe most days and jump of the high board into the sea. I think it was 14 or 16 feet. I only jumped, I wanted to dive but couldn’t face going in head first. Two feet is high enough for me now!


    • I’m with you on HIGH jumping/diving. I clearly remember swimming lessons YEARS ago and being “forced” to dive off the high dive into the pool. I was so terrified – I did it but only that ONE TIME. The photo for next week absolutely makes me nauseous ! 🙂 🙂 🙂


  10. Oh Teddy we are thankful you are here share all your fun things with us including Angel Sammy’s poem and news on Mom’s cataracts. Even though you don’t want to be disturbed we still want to rub that pretty fur! XO


  11. Those are three purrfect thankfuls Teddy and we all send got thoughts for your Mom’s upcoming surgery. That was a great poem too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


    • Brilliant poem……I believe that car is actually a truck but googling the images of “upside down vehicles” brings up a WHOLE variety of unusual upside down ways to travel. I honestly think this thing would be a road hazard – everyone would want to stare at it and I foresee some fender benders as a result! LOL

      Hugs, Pam


  12. You are the sweetest thing, Teddy, and always with your paws on the ground, no matter what weather😸I, Peachy, can easily stand in the wind too, but Stippie on the other hand might fly by…MOL…We loved your poem, Angel Sammy, in fact we always like how you write one. We didn’t see any of these cars effurr, and Granny thinks she gets distracted by them when she drives, they’re so not normal…well in this case, the new normal…MOL…Good LUCK on the eye operation for you Pam. We cross our paws for you🙏Here come some Double Pawkisses for all of you and we’ll be back later to catch up on you🐾😽💞


    • Thanks for visiting us! Mom will have another “pre-eye surgery” meeting next week then hopefully will get scheduled for the cataract removal. She can’t WAIT to see properly again! We agree with you about those upside down vehicles – very confusing – can’t imagine seeing one on the road!! Thanks for the double pawkisses – they’re ALWAYS appreciated from you!!!!! We send some back to you as well.

      Love, Teddy and Mom
