Thankful Tnursday and Poetry Corner

 Thankful Thursday


 This week I am participating in Brian’s Thankful Thursday to say a very grateful Thank You to our friend June and the rest of the pack at the Zoolatry Blog for featuring me yesterday in their First Friends post-Wednesday. It has indeed been one of the greatest honors in my young life. Thank you.





Through the clouds and the rain, I saw quite a sight

That, when it became clear, caused me a fright

Three big ladies splashing in puddles

Holding on to umbrellas with white knuckles

Wearing too-small stilettos 

Squishing their fat little toes

The one on the left carried a bag so small

It looked like it belonged to a fashionable Barbie doll

The one in the center had a large purse

All the better to steal medication for an inattentive nurse

The one on the right held her umbrella high and to the side

Not understanding why she was getting soaked like a shell in the tide

When they came close I realized what was strange

It wasn’t them splashing around at an advanced age

It wasn’t what they had on

Matching $10.00 dresses from Amazon

It wasn’t that they were out in the rain

An activity that seemed insane

It was because, and I say this with dread

Not a single one of them had a head.


  1. I saw you over there yesterday. Make me smile.

    Love the poem. You're right there are no heads. Hadn't noticed this until you mentioned it.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. ♥

  2. Ruby Rose you are a natural with poetry. Well done little friend

    Hugs Cecilia

  3. Your poem made us laugh and you're right - not one of them has a head!

Bishop Arrives at Rainbow Bridge

  The ground shook, the wind bent the trees, and a tremendous howl arose amongst the angels. It was clear that something big was crossing the river:  Czar Bishop had come to Rainbow Bridge. The Czar, son of Miss  Kimberli, brother to the legendary Apollo and Napa, had used every heartbeat and more as he fought to stay with his mom and continue teaching all the orphaned dogs that his mother took in and found new homes for them to live.  When word spread of Bishop's arrival, dogs came from every corner of the Bridge to pay homage to him and greet the incredible dog who inspired his mom to save many other dogs. Bishop also helped his mom create one of the most entertaining Facebook profiles. Transcribed were the conversations between Bishop and his mom ranging from the new students two what he needed at the store. Few dogs have been blessed with a bigger heart than Bishop. He had his collection of pets he doted
