Bacon at the Bridge


Yes we have bacon here!

I have a different Bacon Saturday today of course because I am at the Bridge.   I am not yet allowed to share photos of things here but when I do I will show you the BACON SUITE which is where I am hanging my hat (and wings) when I’m not visiting my sweet Mom and Dad at home…..they need me a lot right now you know.  It’s all so new.

There are so many things I need to say but Mom is operating on “empty” right now so forgive me if I’m short with today’s post……………..we may have a few short posts before we get back in the swing……………but I will continue blogging for sure!

Thank you all for pawticipating in Easy’s COME FLY WITH ME blog hop yesterday – we had a bazillion places to visit and a bazillion notes to send out but let me again say THANK YOU to all of you and I had a super fun time.   I know it was a lot of work and I thank Easy, Madi and Dory for helping to make it “work”.

I’ll have my first breakfast here at the Bridge Breakfast Buffet tomorrow and I’ve been told to expect a BOUNTIFUL BACON BAR………oh boy – I knew I was gonna love it here.

Thanks Miss Ann at Zoolatry for the beautiful graphic.........

Thanks Miss Ann at Zoolatry for the beautiful graphic………

The napping is good at the Bridge...............

Love, Angel Sammy

p.s.  We have received some beautiful poems and thoughts from some of you and I will share those in the days to come………stay tuned!

The Farewell Tour



Friends, we perhaps should have told you before now – but sometimes sad news ON TOP of other sad news is just that much more sad.    The loss of our buddy Easy this week was overwhelming for all of us so I didn’t want to tell you about ME, but now I must……………….

This morning I am heading to the Bridge to join my friend Easy and my predecessor here in my home Eddy, and SOOOOOOOOOOOOO many of our friends who have gone before.   I have been very sick for very long and I am tired and ready to rest………..my leaving will not be sad – it will be me moving on to that beautiful place we call the Rainbow Bridge.   I will be welcomed by many I’m sure…………….and I will STILL be in your hearts if you find a little spot for me!

Miss Ann at Zoolatry made this beautiful badge – you will see it today around the blogosphere…………but she also wrote a poem which I’m including.

 A Poem about Sammy
Now I lay me down to sleep,
angels near to guide my feet.
I’m not afraid, I do not fear,
my life’s been good while I was here.
It is time to leave, to cross my bridge,
to reach toward my rainbow …
When I come to heaven’s door,
I’ll see the friends smiling who went before.
Waiting to welcome me home again.
Where I began, where I now end.
So I will now leave, I will cross my bridge,
yes ~ I see my rainbow …
My Mom will write more later today – probably this evening as I finish my AMAZING DAY visiting all of you who are part of the lovely blog hop that dear Easy and Madi planned for today.   Of course then we didn’t know Easy would have left so suddenly – but he’s in our hearts always and I like to think he’s joined me as I visit all of you today on my COME FLY WITH ME tour!    I’ve already visited many of you and will continue to do that all day today…………you make my heart so full of love.
I will continue blogging but might take a little time off – you know I need to check into my suite over the Bridge – they’ve reserved the “BACON SUITE” for me.   Just right wouldn’t you say?

Your forever friend, Sammy


Thankful Thursday and Thoroughly Poetic Too!



Hello my friends!  Time to write a poem honoring the letter “X” and I decided that I can CHEAT because it’s MY blog and if I want to I can – right?


X Marks The Spot

By Sammy Kimmell, 11/24/16

Thanksgiving….being thankful

Sometimes it can be a handful

So many things to be thankful for

But “X” marks the spot and it’s a bullseye score.

The “X” is on my heart where my love is stored

I absolutely couldn’t possibly love you all more.

I’m feeling my age and I wish there was more time

My “slot machine of life” needs just one more dime!

But before I must go, I’ll most thankfully say

I’m especially thankful on Thanksgiving Day –

My life has been grand, by life has been good

I’m glad you’ve all been part of my “blog neighborhood”.

Enjoy your blessings and count them out loud

I’ll promise to visit you one day on a cloud.


From Sammy With Love

I feel that I must say a little something to everyone about Sammy although it’s not easy to do……..because of course our beloved pets MUST live forever right?   They must – they are such a huge part of our lives and hearts.  Well Sammy is just tired and his body is failing him and there is little that can be done.   I have NOT wanted to talk about it – because it’s difficult – very difficult.   He spent a day and a half in the hospital having constant IV drip with a variety of treatments all designed to do what we hope is NOT impossible – give him just a little more time…………Sammy has loved Christmas since he was tiny.   He loves lying under the tree and watching my husband’s train go round and round…….he loves present boxes…….he loves just being WITH us when we unwrap our presents and when he gets to look in his stocking to see what Santa Paws has brought.   SO our wonderful vet is trying to give Sammy a “rally” – – – a boost so that he will be able to enjoy one last Christmas with us.    We are NOT doing any “heroics” for him……I honestly feel he wouldn’t want us to.   He’s had a wonderful and long happy life and he deserves to have a good long rest.   He will always be in my heart and I think in many of your hearts too………..I’ve LOVED sharing him with you and right now, it’s my intention to continue – after all, Angels DO blog you know!

Don’t be sad…………..just sent us all your purrs and prayers and ENERGY so Sam will hang in there – I’ll keep you posted on the blog…………no long drawn out medical reports but just to let you know how the “rally” is working.


We are hooking up to Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!   We’re THANKFUL for you too Brian!!!




Thanks thanks to the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head for this lovely badge…….it touches my heart.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Bonjour Poetry Lovers!


Today we get one step closer to the end of the alphabet with our celebration of the letter “V”, but remember, I recently announced that we would START OVER from “A” once we reached the end because we’re all having so much fun writing poems that we should just KEEP ON DOING IT!     If you have written a poem today for “V” you can post the link to your blog where the poem is posted in my comments so we can visit you to read it OR just post your poem in my comments here! We’ll SHARE……………..

So without further ado, I hereby present my salute to the letter “V”…………..



By Sammy Kimmell, 11/10/16

Although it isn’t February

And not “that special day”

If you love somebody dearly

Then you simply have to say –

The day is so much brighter

When your Valentine is there

You show them that you love them

And that you really, truly care.

A special hug or squeeze works

So does a great big smile

You simply want to be with them

For longer than “a while”.

I think that the word Valentine

Means the one that you adore

The one you want to be near always

And would do anything for.

My Mom and I are Valentines

It’s exactly how we feel

Valentines forever

Our love is the REAL deal!…………….

Mom and I have always been super duper close…………..she looks at me across the room and I will wink………she will wink back………..we have communicated.    Mom says she can just THINK of me during her day and I will “meow” from wherever I am in the house – like I know she thought of me.    The one thing I do that irritates her (!!!) is that at night if she just happens to wake up for a minute and is lying there waiting to fall back asleep, I “know” she has woken up because she will hear me call her from downstairs………….yeah maybe we have a psychic bond or something?!?!?!   Whatever, we are very close and while I adore my Dad too (after all it’s been the three of us together for almost 17 years!!!), Mom and I are CLOSER than CLOSE.   Maybe she was a cat in a previous life?    Anyway, that’s why I wrote this poem for “V”.

Next week we have “W”……………..then just three more letters before we start all over again!   YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Make someone feel special today – write a poem for them!


Until NEXT Thursday!  

Au Revoir!  

Monsieur Sam the Poet Man

P.S.  We are also joining up with our friend Brian’s “Thankful Thursday” Blog Hop.  

Since Mom and I are very THANKFUL for each other, we think we qualify!!!
