Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone? How do I look?

Did I fool you? That is my flat Phoebe, I am up here hiding from Mom. Do you think she will be fooled and put the ear medicine on flat Phoebe? Sure, it beats the pills, but it feels funny.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see Grammie on Monday and Thursday. I love her so very much!!!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day,featuring the letter O. My poem is titled Old.

Old
My Mom is pretty bold
she said I was getting old.
Can she put her foot behind her head?
If she tried, she’d need a week in bed.
Can she climb to the top of my tree?
She would definitely hurt her knee.
She needs to be told
she is the one that is getting old.

We are also joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop this week’s theme is The Underdog.

  1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946):  Poor George Bailey can’t seem to catch a break, especially from that evil Mr. Potter.
  2. Bridget Jones’s Diary ( 2001): Poor Bridget is single, overweight and pestered by her Mum to get a boyfriend. Despite being far from perfect, she is very lovable.
  3. Love Potion #9 (1992): Sandra Bullock plays a geeky biologist who starts to get a lot of male attention when she discovers the power of Love Potion #9.

And we can’t forget the Friendly Fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1.In the Spring, I look forward to _____________________________________.
2. I would love to have a ___________________________ party.
3. Few know this about me, but                                          .

4. No one                              .

The Nanny

Hi everyone! I am mad at my Mom!

 

She gave me a wet willie, you know when someone sticks a wet finger in your ear. She said it was thyroid medicine so I don’t have to take pills, but it sure felt funny.

Grammie is coming to see my today. I love her so very much and I haven’t seen her since Saturday so I am very thankful she will be here today.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter N.

The Nanny
In the 90’s Mom watched The Nanny
about a girl out on her fanny.
Mom liked it so much , she got this


her voice sounds worse than a hiss.

I think my Mom is crazy
and sometimes a bit lazy.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Mom is skipping the movie hop this week because the theme is ancient world and she doesn’t have any recommendations on those.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Before I start my post, I would like to have a moment of silence for Boomer of the Trout Talkin Tabbies. Rest in Peace

 

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful that I got to see my Grammie and she brought me treats too. I love my Grammie so very much!

And now for my M poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Meds
I hate taking pills
I would rather pay bills.
Twice a day, a pink med
Mom catches me in bed
And at night a liquid that is icky
it is even a little sticky
Taking meds stinks
I wish Mom would give them to Jinx.

We are also joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks.This week is  Remakes/Sequels you want to see made.

  1. Overboard, the Goldie Hawn movie would make a great remake with her daughter, Kate Hudson playing her role.
  2. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, imagine how much more fun it would be to skip school with the help of cell phones and modern technology.
  3. It’s a Wonderful Life, I would like to see a remake of that, the same time period and story just with new actors. I doubt it would be as good, but I would like to see someone try.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. I hope _______________________ gets renewed for another season.

2. My first crush was __________________________.

3.                             usually makes me                          .

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be                                       .

Dr. Seuss Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

Brody wants to thank everyone for the Gotcha Day wishes. He is here to announce the winner of the Dr. Seuss giveaway.

  Congratulations to A Wizard and Angel!

Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that we got to see Grammie Wednesday and she will be back today too. I love her so very much!

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day,  featuring the letter L.

Lips
Lips are to give a kiss
mine make me want to hiss.
Stupid rodent ulcer ,
I’m not even a mouser.
I wish it would go away
and not come back another day.

Yup, I have that rodent ulcer again. It is the same one which never healed all the way and when I got off the prednisone, it came right back. Now I have a liquid medicine called Atopica, it is for allergies. I need it daily for a month and then we will cut back. Mom was glad that I gained 6 ounces because she thought I was too thin before. The worst part of going to the vet was that Millie had to go for a thyroid checkup and he doesn’t travel well. He always poops- it was not a fun ride, good thing it wasn’t too cold because Mom had to open a window.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks. This week is “On the Run”. Here are her choices:

  1. The Fugitive ( 1993)- I think this is Harrison Ford’s best film, he plays a Dr. accused of murdering his wife. He goes on the run to find the one-armed man who did it.
  2. Splash ( 1984)- Tom Hanks falls in love with a mermaid ( Daryl Hannah) and they are on the run because scientists want to capture her to study her.
  3. Double Jeopardy ( 1999)- One of my favorite movies, Ashley Judd’s husband fakes his murder and she goes to jail for it. Once released, she is determined to find her son and prove her innocence.

And last, but not least are the fill-ins, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2. Please pray for their sweet Maggie as she is going to be having exploratory surgery soon.

Fill-ins:
1. My favorite herb or spice is __________________.
2. An herb/spice I dislike is ________________.
3.Lately, I have been working on                               .

4.This Winter was                                    .

Thankful Thursday and More

Hi everyone! I got to see my Grammie Wednesday- I love her so very much. And she brought me treats and said that I don’t have to share.

I am so thankful for my Grammie that I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am also thankful that a foster home from a shelter was available for me when I needed it so I am going to participate in a cool fundraiser that I read about on The Pet Blog Lady. A 18 year old dog named Morgan was in need of a home so the foster family is going to keep him. He turns 19 in March so they are asking everyone to send him a card and possibly a dollar for the shelter. I am giving one of my very own dollars and Mom and Grammie are too. For all the information, click on the link above.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter K.

KaChoo
Mom’s first cat you were
you taught her to treasure every purr.
You were from a litter of six
3 orange, 2 tabby , 1 gray-quite a mix.
You preferred blue to pink,
your tail had a kink.
You were with her for 16 years
for you, Mom still sheds tears.
I am glad I got to know you too,
my sweet sister KaChoo.

KaChoo was a sweet sister, not to be confused with KaTwo-not so sweet.

Mom is joining Wandering Through the Shelves Movie Picks again. This week is the TMP Television edition: Super powers/superheroes.

  1. Grimm: Excellent show that is sadly ending after 6 seasons. Grimm is a homicide detective that can see the creatures hidden inside of normal looking people.
  2. Pushing Daisies ( 2007-2009): A quirky show that only had 22 episodes. Ned, has the ability to touch anything ( person, fruit, etc) dead and bring it back to life-but, if he touches it again it is dead forever.
  3. The Flash: Currently on the CW, I chose it because my hubby watches it so I do to once in a while plus we call Joanie, The Flash because she comes running from anywhere when she hears treats being dispensed.

Hi everyone!!Time to get hopping, we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much and I get sad when I don’t see her.

  I am in the bunk bed because I am all tuckered out from the Kits, Kritters and K9s Valentine’s K-oss dance. My purrince and I had a wonderful time. Click here to see photos and please remember the camera adds 10 pounds and they are all on my butt-phooey!

Mom sometimes write articles for The Daily Mews , but this month I decided to give it a try. I am svelte so I am just the one to give dieting advice to Mom and KaTwo. They haven’t followed any of it though. Click here.

And for Sammy’s Poetry Day , featuring the letter J, I have written a poem about Jinx.

Jinx
Jinx is a handsome mancat
there is no denying that.
He likes human, rabbits and dogs
I bet he even likes frogs.
There is one thing he does hate
other cats, he won’t tolerate.

Indoor Only
I am an indoor cat
I am happy about that.
I don’t have to worry about getting hit by a truck
that would really suck.
I won’t get stuck up in a tree
or get stung by a bee.
I wish you all would all stay in the house
even if it means not catching a mouse.

One of our blogging friends, Curious as a Cathy, let us know about a fun hop on Wandering Through the Shelves. Each week you name 3 movies that go with the theme. Mom used to watch a lot of movies, not as many lately though, but she thought this would be fun. The theme this week is genius/prodigy.Here are our choices:

  1. A Beautiful Mind (2001) : Russell Crowe as brilliant mathematician John Nash who also suffers from severe mental illness.
  2. The Theory of Everything ( 2014): Movie about the life of the famous physicist Stephen Hawking.
  3. Snowden (2016): Movie about Edward Snowden and how he revealed NSA’s illegal surveillance techniques. Not sure if he is considered a genius, but after seeing the film and knowing how well he could program computers, he is a genius in my book.

And now what you have been waiting to know- the winner of the first water activated fish is: Friends Forever! Congratulations to Allie, Ellie and Raz. I will have another giveaway soon for the other one and I am begging my Mom to order more being that they are so popular.

One more thing…the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came up with the 1st two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the 2nd two.

I know I am just one of 13 cats
but I wear lots of hats
I call this my Elmer Fudd


it keeps me warm, but I look like a dud.
When I want to act like a clown


I wear this to help get rid of a frown.
When I think of Dr. Seuss


I put this on,but it is a little loose.
Lately, I wear my nurses cap


to take care of Dad, my favorite chap.
