Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday – it’s thankful day with Brian as our HOP HOST.    If you’d like to tell the world what you’re thankful for, you can link up with the rest of us at Brian’s site by clicking the badge above.   Thanks for hosting Brian!!

Thankful that we’ve had a pretty week so far which means I must be thankful that the weatherman was WRONG with his predictions every single day this week.  He said rain – we have sun.   We do NEED rain though so I’ll be THANKFUL next Thursday if we have some before then!

I’m thankful that Angel Sammy’s poem for this week arrived last night – I’m sharing it below.   Hope you wrote a poem to share!  It makes Angel Sammy happy when people participate in his poetry day.

Hugs, Teddy


Hello Poetry Friends!

Time to share.    Hope you wrote a poem for the photo I gave you last Thursday!    I wrote one – and I’m sharing it below.   Let us know in comments by giving us the link to your poem because we would love love love to read it.    It’s tons of fun writing a poem using a photo as inspiration.

Here’s last week’s photo and my poem follows:

“No Soap”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©May 31, 2023


Wow this place is pretty cool!

Not a tub – you call it a pool!

No soap is there to get in my eyes

No heavy diaper chafing my thighs!

A bathing suit and matching cap

I’m quite the dashing chap…..

I see a little blonde with lovely curls

This swim thing is fun if there’s pretty girls!


Ah yes……we learn things at a very young age.   The little kid in this photo is looking quite comfortable in the water – maybe he’ll grow up to be an Olympic Swimmer one day!   Now here’s your photo for NEXT Thursday’s poetry day.    

Looking for a private weekend on the canal?   This might not be it!


Love this photo – the narrowboats would be a fun way to sightsee – but not if there’s a traffic jam!   Have fun with this one……….I know I will…………………….

Until we meet again next Thursday – please be happy and stay healthy and be thankful for all you have………………

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

Your Angels are always there for you when you need them…..

Love, Angel Sammy

Tuesday Teaser Class Time!


It’s here!   Teaser Class starts now!


Hello Class.   Hope those of you who celebrate Memorial Day had a nice peaceful and quiet one.   We did.    It was rainy here so we had lots of time to prepare for class today.   We have a TEASER lined up for you today and guess who found it…..?   US!    That’s right, your Professors found today’s Teaser photo so watch out!

Let’s start things off with rules and badges shall we?

There’s the badge lineup and please DO follow the rules – otherwise we may have to call on Sarge or Marge or the new cook Miss Dingleberry just hired to work for her and I don’t think any of you want to see any of these folks knocking on your door!

Grumpy Sarge

Scary Cook

“Well they don’t scare me…….One swipe of my sharp claws and they’d be in ribbons!”

Well let’s not get too carried away – let’s move on to the Teaser photo!!    Here’s our Teaser Security guard with today’s photo:

“Here’s It Is!”


OK class – that’s your challenge for the day – our Cheer Team will now proceed with cheering you up!

Now that’s nice looking city
Just right for a five cute girl kitties
I wonder where IS this place?
Are there cute guys for us to chase?
Oh sorry we got carried away
We’re really just here to say
Good luck and we’ll be back tomorrow
Some of you will be happy and some overcome with sorrow
So we hope you win a badge
We wouldn’t want to be lectured by Madge!!!

“Professors can we pretty please go eat now?  I’m STARVING!”

Well we certainly can head to the cafeteria – I’m sure we can fill your tummies up while you think about the Teaser.    Let’s go!

Step Right Up!  The Line Is Open!

SPARK on Monday


Happy Monday.    You know what Monday means – SPARKS!  “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.

I found two SPARKS to share today………they both say what I want to say on this day of remembering.

Remember……………and NEVER forget

Hugs, Pam

Sunday Selfie Hop


Happy Sunday.    You know what Sunday means – Hopping with The Cat On My Head for Sunday Selfies.    Since tomorrow is Memorial Day and because Mom didn’t take a new photo of me this week – Mom and I decided we should let her Dad – my Grandpa – be the star of our Selfie today.

My Grandpa is no longer with us – and in fact I never got to meet him – nor did Angel Sammy.    Grandpa went to the Human Bridge on October 23, 1992.   His grave is at Arlington Cemetery.    Many of you have seen photos of him before – with my Mom mostly – OR you’ve seen his high school graduation photo which my Mom has.    Since it’s Memorial Day, we’re going to have Grandpa be the star of our show.

We also aren’t doing an artsy version of Grandpa.   We just want to remember him this Memorial Day weekend…………………..Mom misses you Grandpa and I’m sorry I never got to meet you.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom
