First Things First…….!!
Can you believe that yesterday was our blogaversary and MOM FORGOT? Well she did………….now I have an excuse as I wasn’t around when the blog was started – I’m the new kid on the block and I’m PAWSITIVE if Angel Sammy was still living with us he would have known and told Mom. But we did NOT get the “wake up” call until today with our friends at Friends Furever wished us a Happy Blogaversary! GOOD GRIEF MOM! I’m so THANKFUL that we have friends who pay attention to these things since Mom wasn’t! That’s what I’m thankful for as we join up with Brian’s THANKFUL THURSDAY. Want to share your “thankfuls” ??

Mom and Angel Sam started the blog on May 10, 2011. To me that sounds like EONS ago but then I’m just a kid. Mom posted a link to our first post here on our blog yesterday, which was rather pitiful, rather short, and had very little interesting information in it – which is reflected in the FEW comments we got back then! We’ve come a long way baby – we have tons of followers, tons of fun, and have celebrated the blogaversary ON TIME every year until now. Here’s the link in case you want a good YAWN. CLICK HERE
Since we’re a day late, we won’t get too carried away celebrating – let’s just say the chances are SLIM we will forget again! Tee Hee Maybe just a WEE celebration?
Yummy choc/strawberry cake!
Now shall we move on? Today is my brother Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post day – and he never lets me down – he always visits me the night before and brings me a poem he’s written for the occasion. We are nearing the end of the alphabet again – this is our second time through…………but we will continue with a Poetry Day – we just might add a little TWIST to it which we’ll talk about after we get to “Z”!
Take it away Angel Sammy!
Greetings Poetry Fans! Today we are celebrating the letter “V” ! If you have written a poem that you’d like to share with everyone, just put your blog link in my comments and let us know you want us to visit and see your glorious work – OR – you can post your poem right here in my comments if you like! Put a little poetry in your life – you’ll be glad you did!
With Love from the Rainbow Bridge…………..Angel Sammy
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 5-11-2017
One thing that I totally do not miss
Is the vacuum cleaner’s whine and hiss!
At the Bridge we don’t need to daily clean
This place is the most orderly spot you’ve ever seen!
Monster machines in closets there are NOT
Wall to wall beauty is what we’ve got.
Back home on Fridays I knew the sound
When Mr. Monster would come around.
Our house was clean as clean can be
But Mom did “monsterizing” regularly!
When I got old and my hearing was failing
I got more brave and less scared of “de-TAIL-ing” !
That machine was a monster and I kept my tail under
If it had sucked up my tail it would hurt like thunder!
Nowadays from my cloud I can see little Teddy
Preparing to vacate when the vacuum is ready……
He hides in the basement until cleaning’s done
For sure that old monster is way far from FUN!
My Angel brother sure can write a poem can’t he? Actually I have become a little more brave with the monster – when Mom opens the closet where it lives I watch until she plugs it in – THEN I run and hide. I used to run the minute she opened the closet – I’m making progress!
Now that you finished reading my blog – why not stop by my friend Raz’s blog HERE and wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Tell him Teddy sent ya!
