Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am so thankful that Grammie kitty sat us for 4 hours on Wednesday. I love her so very much.

I am still tuckered from The Great One’s visit. She calls me  Fee, she seems to like my name. Do you remember my car that was Mom’s niece’s? If not, click here. Well, now The Great One plays with it and I think she is sending me a message- look what she put in the trunk!
  One of our toy rats.

Here is my W poem for Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day.

WHEN
Us kitties always want to know when
When is breakfast ? I am getting thin.
When can we have lunch?
I need something to munch.
When can we have a snack?
Feed me or I will give you a whack.
When are you serving supper?
Please try to hurry upper.
When can I have my bedtime treat?
I could go for a sweet.

We are also joining #PMTphotohunt @tonkstail , this week’s word is Kindle.

Mom is finally reading a cat book on her Kindle-Catnapped by Patricia Fry, she will review it Monday.

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. Please ask your friends to join in the fun.
1. I have googled _________________________.
2. I have________________________ on Ebay.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 45

Hi everyone! Time for Friendly Fill-Ins Week 45. Please be sure to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comments.


1. The oldest item in my home is __________________________.

2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is _____________________.


3. My family heritage is                                .
4. My favourite family tradition is                                .

My answers:

  1. The oldest item in my home is this platter that belonged to my paternal grandmother. I am guessing it is from the 1930’s.
  2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is mustard, it expired in March 2015-oops! I actually replaced it Thursday along with the ketchup that also expired in 2015.
  3. My family heritage is Polish on my Mom’s side and French Canadian on my Dad’s side.
  4. My favourite family tradition is the Christmas Eve meal that we put on every year. My maternal grandfather’s family always celebrated with a Polish Wigilia with a several course meatless dinner. I continued that tradition, but it was a lot of work making the foods and no one was thrilled with them so now we do a buffet, but the important part is being together.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

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.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

1. The oldest item in my home is __________________________.

peace-globe-square-blog4peace-nov-4-2012 Here is our peace globe, if Brody and Phoebe can make it work then anyone can. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if everyone was nice to one another? We may not be able to achieve world peace, but we can at least do our part and treat everyone well. I realize I am preaching to the choir though because I know anyone that loves cats is already a good person. Please check out the other participants at Blog4Peace.

My answers:

  1. I wish WEAVER would bring back CHICKEN CROCQUETTES, I AM SURE THEY WERE UNHEALTHY, BUT THEY TASTED SO GOOD AND CAME WITH A YUMMY GRAVY.
  2. An act of kindness that I do often is GIVE COUPONS AWAY TO STRANGERS IN LINE AT CRAFT STORES AND MACY’S. I ALSO GIVE THEM OUT AT RESTAURANTS. I LOVE TO SEE PEOPLE’S REACTIONS, MOST ARE THANKFUL, BUT SOME ACT SCARED LIKE THEY THINK IT IS A SCAM.
  3. I still have STUFFED ANIMALS from my childhood.

Woofy, the dog is furless because I ate all his fur ( I was a strange toddler). The bear sucking her thumb was bought by my Gramma while she was in the hospital having surgery for a brain tumor. It brings tears to my eyes knowing how much she loved me to be thinking of me when she was so sick. I was 10 at the time and apparently had outgrown the fur eating.

4. If I didn’t have my HUBBY, MOM and KITTIES, I would be completely lost.

Hangry Phoebe

Hi everyone! Do you get mean when you are hungry? Mom says I get Hangry and beat up poor Prancie, I say she is hangry too-what do you think?

Notice the baseball game on in the background. Dad watches that a lot, I feel bad for Tommy John, it seems like he is always having surgery.

I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much. I will see her again on Saturday too.

For Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J, I have written a poem about Joanie
Joanie is a cat
she is a brat
Sure she is sweet
and very neat
but with food
she is quite rude
if you have a snack
she will give you a smack
