What better way to celebrate being THANKFUL than on THANKSGIVING! Brian has the perfect blog hop for everyone today and if you’d like to join in and express your thanks – please click on his badge and join in.
We are mostly thankful for our health at my house but also thankful for ALL OF YOU. You are the people who keep us going. We blog so we can enjoy your company and your sense of humor and your support and about a million other things. The blogosphere is a HUGE world as you know…..some people try it and don’t like it and stop. Angel Sammy and Mom started this blog in May of 2011 and after Angel Sammy left us, I took his place and we are still going strong. That is a BIG THANKFUL.
Angel Sammy STILL is involved in the blog though as you know – in several ways but the biggest of ways is his POETIC THURSDAY. And I got his email last night so here’s what he has for all of us this week:
Happy Thanksgiving Friends!
I spent a lot of Thanksgivings with my Mom and Dad and know how much they enjoyed the big feast with family. This year they will be alone – with Teddy – for the feasting. Mom is doing the whole turkey and trimmings thing and they will have a fire in the fireplace and Teddy will sleep through the whole thing – just like I did when I lived there!
We hope that you took a little time this past week to use the photo I gave you last Thursday as inspiration in order to write a poem to share with us. I wrote mine and below is the photo we all used and my poem.
“Visible In Space!”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©November 25, 2020
Look at those lights – they’re all over the place!
No doubt this home is visible up in space…………
Every inch of property is covered in lights
Their electric bill must truly be a fright
But they don’t mind this is a holiday fun
It’s not just for THEM but for EVERYONE!
The most popular house for a Christmas tour
You can hardly ignore it – that’s for sure!
The joy of the season shines from every inch
And overseeing it all is “himself” – the Grinch!
One thing for sure is that the night of Santa’s flight
He’ll definitely find this house – as follows the light!
HAHA. Well, I am sure these folks don’t care what the electric bill is – they have fun and that’s what’s important. They have spirit. I’m sure the whole neighborhood gets caught up in it too.
Now – did you write a poem? Let us know in comments won’t you? We’d love to read it. Don’t say “I can’t write poetry” because trust me – YOU CAN DO THIS! Give it a try……then share it with us.
Want to see the photo for NEXT Thursday’s poetic get-together? Here it is:
My Mom said she always wanted to go in the Fun House or Haunted House, etc. at a carnival but that her memory of what was INSIDE was not always FUN – sometimes it was VERY SCARY! I think this might make for some fun poetry don’t you?
Well my friends, our time has come and gone. I want to wish all of you a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING if you celebrate it – if you don’t – I’ll just THANK YOU for being our friend. See you next week and please continue to STAY SAFE.
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy. I sure am thankful that you are my Angel Brother. You guide me every day. I always think “what would Sammy do?” or “what would Sammy think?”…….that has helped me grow up to be a good cat (Mom says anyway!).
