Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today I'm joining Sammy 
Mom was inspired by these photos Sammy I apologize in advance a poet she is not

When the (blog) door is closed on all fours I goes
 I search high and low for friend or foe.
 In the deep dark corners of the closet I see dust!

On the floor I see mom and think woman must there you be?
 I sashay about, over her arm so hairy I step
I'm blinded by the light of the flashy beast 

 Alas I fear to find an escape near is not here.
I settle down with mom hairy arm and all
I hear you all laughing and I don't blame you.  
All the dust has clouded mom's better judgement

GOOD News about Wednesday.  Workers were only here 1/2 a day...
We 3 seniors were thrilled to have no strangers in the house.  The peeps spent the free
time taking pictures off the walls...

Today we will have painters here probably all day.


  1. If you are having painters, that must mean the work is almost done! Am I right?

  2. At least you have painters - da mommas did da painting demselves here and dey took furever!

  3. fabulous idea to sleep when the worker guys are gone :o) I love your poem and the picture with your paws and your mamas arm is a great one for wyatts hurdle and balance event :o)

  4. You must be tried not getting all your naps because of the construction. We couldn't sleep with strangers in our house.

  5. Catching up on cat naps....that would be the two of us seniors here...The pictures on the wall can wait for another time, right, Madi?

    Love the header.

  6. OK so now i have seen mom on the floor taking photos i am thinking i have never done that.. hummmmm... love the PAW shots and so happy you had a break in your Stranger In the house tale. oh no.. hope the painters paint quickly.... sleep is good

  9. Bow wow, you have a way with words with Madi...who are you, William Shakespeare? BOL! Naps are the best!

  10. WE read Sammy's Poem about DINING...
    We think YOU made an excellent Poem, too.
    Having a Half Day off, from the horrid invaders with their banging and clanging, must have been DELIGHTFUL... We hope that the PAINT FAST and get outta your CASTLE Quickly.

  11. Oh No! Strangers in the house making the place smell strange!
    We hope the air conditioning can ventilate the fumes, Madi!
    Hugs and nose taps,
    Molly and Kathy
