Poetry Thursday

Happy Poetry Thursday!

My very good friends Angel Sam and Teddy sent us this picture to inspire verse. Below the picture is my offering

It was that very morning when Sam did say to Sue

“My dear you look very blue

I have discussed with the children and we say

You have to go out alone for the day

See friends, watch a show

Whatever you want you should go.”

Sue said it was a bad idea

Her family could not survive with her that was clear

But Sam promised they could take care of themselves

That he would cook and put everything back on the shelves

Sue agreed to go on a night on the town

It might cure her permanent crown

She met some old friends at a bar

They laughed, sang, and danced happily

And Sue had to admit she felt fantastically 

Until she got home and saw the kitchen

Sam must have thought she’d come in bitching

But she began cleaning and not a word she could say

When you’re a mom you can’t get away


  1. Shame on Sam. But good poem, Ruby Rose.

  2. That was a good one, yep, Moms can't get away at all.

  3. Now that sounds like something our Mom would do, although she says she is very worn out from washing dishes over Christmas when the whole gang was here for a week!!!

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
