Poetic Thankful Thursday

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is

Heck No

Is this guy crazy?
He's actually kind of lazy.
Shoveling two rows of snow
Wouldn't you know?
That's his plan to get his car out
Any more snow and he'll probably pout!
Is he wearing his pyjamas?
We think he's bananas!!
Though we usually go with the flow
To snow we say "Heck No!"

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

We are SUPER THANKFUL that we live in Florida and don't have to mess with that cold wet stuff!!  We're also THANKFUL for cooler temps (but not cool enough for SNOW) AND for Mom being first to comment on the Tuesday Teaser.

Veterans Day Monday Sparks

Even though McGuffy's reader is taking a break, we are continuing our Monday Sparks posts!  From the original Sparks posts:
Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 
I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

In keeping with the THANKFUL theme for November, here is our Sparks post for today

We're taking turns answering today.  First Noelle, then Allie, Raz and Mom.

2. __Being floofily gorgeous_____ is not ___very hard for me.  By the way, I swoon when I think of Mauricio too. Those Kitties Blue Mancats are really something!
3. Good things come to those who __help themselves (especially if it's the TREAT box!)__.
4. _Lack of sleep__ makes me grumpy.

Today is also Flashback Friday.  This photo was from when our buddy Bashful was visiting.  He took a selfie with our big turkey!

Poetic Thankful Thursday

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is

Our poem is titled: 
Love through the ages

I love you, my dear,
She whispered in his ear.
Together for many years
Through good times and tears.
Over the years their love has grown
Thanks to the affection they've both shown

Our Daddy used to always say "I love you my dear" to Mom.  This photo reminded her of that.  She still says it to him and answers "I love you too."

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Although she is sad and misses him terribly, Mom is THANKFUL for the love she and our Daddy had together.

Raz is THANKFUL for all the Gotcha wishes and purrs and prayers he got on Sunday.

We are all THANKFUL that Mom got up early enough to be one of the two first to comment on the Tuesday Teaser!!

The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky

Periwinkle was hanging out in her Ham-mick dreaming of her pal Stinky

All of a sudden she heard a WOOOSH outside her window.  She looked out and there he was!!

Periwinkle quickly let him into the house and gave him a big hug.  She was so thrilled to have him visit her.  

"Hi Stinky!  What's up?  Does your Mom know you are here?  I heard you went out on a little adventure without me the other day"

Embarrassed, Stinky looked down and sheepishly said "Yes, Periwinkle, I did a bad thing and got out of the house.  Mom and Dad grounded me but said I was allowed to come to visit you for our weekly adventure."

"Well thank COD you didn't get lost or have something bad happen to you.  I would be so upset if you got lost or if something WORSE happened."

Stinky agreed that what he did wasn't good and promised to do better.  "It's just so tempting outside, there are all kinds of birds and fun things to see"

"I know Stinky but being safe is more important"  Let's do something fun AND safe, okay?  How would you like to visit the beach?  It's like a great big litterbox where you can dig forever.  I'll ask our Mom to drive us there."

Stinky thought that was a fun idea since it was nice and warm at Periwinkle's house.  Her Mom agreed to take them and off they went.

"Wow Periwinkle, you're right...we could dig for hours here"

"I have something better to show you.  This is where the sea turtles have come to nest"  October 31 was the end of the season but I'm sure we can see at least one turtle today.  Look, there's one now!"

"It's important to follow the rules during turtle season.  No lights on or near the beach and don't disturb the nests."

Stinky had another idea....he wanted to learn to surf!  Even though cats don't like to get their furs wet, he was brave and Periwinkle found a surfer who was willing to teach him the basics.  After a few tries, Stinky was surfing like a pro!!  Periwinkle was so proud of him!

After they finished surfing, they shared a picnic lunch on the beach that Periwinkle's Mom packed for them.

Too soon, it was time for Stinky to teleport home.  They shared paw pats, headbonks and whisker kisses and he left for home.  Both Periwinkle and Stinky promised to behave and hope you enjoyed their adventure!
