Thoroughly Poetic Thursday Z: for Sammy

Angel Sammy started this fun weekly event.
Sweet poetic Sam went to the bridge last Friday, 
Never forgotten though.
We would like to dedicate this post to Sam and Pam.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Sammy

Today's post is brought to you by the letter

Z

Zest
Sam was the best,
his zest for fun and life reached all
the way to the West.
When Sam was a spry guy, his quest was 
to catch pests, no matter where their nests.
As Sam grew wise, that thought went south
to him all critters were friends no matter their clout.
Sam teased us with pictures to make us guess.
Suzie Q cheered us on 
She gave us no clues 
That girl was so cute no one gave a hoot.
 When she shook her
pom-poms, we all threw up our paws saying
Suzie Q our brains are fried
Please come back next week so again we can try.

With hugs and love Madi your bfff

The party in Mom's head!!

.....was a recent discussion with mom's good buddy Pix.  They were talking about what goes on when she writes our post.
 Pix you will see the party goes on non stop....keep reading
Mom has  a morning ritual this is where I sit during the ritual



The products needed for said ritual...
TOGM needs lots of help

THE RITUAL
washes her hair with Suave for Kids, washes her face,  puts in her contacts, 
rubs magic potion lotion all over her face, takes towel off hair adds mousse.


Sooooo mom's other good buddy Mad Snapper and mom  often share crazy stories of things they do that no one knows about and there are no photos because the photo takers are the subjects...
Sunday (12/4/16), Mom sent this email to Mad Snapper

On Thursday I mentioned that Mom was going to a Christmas Wreath Work shop.
It was a held at Fairview Garden Center in Raleigh, sponsored by BB&T.
TOGM was actually very pleased with her first ever live wreath.
The nursery staff gave everyone a few tips on how to start.  They had all types of 
greenery cut and in bins for us to select and a wire form.  
Mom loved all the shades of green and types of greenery.
For some reason Mom was they only attendee who used Magnolia leaves (there to the left of 
the bow).   Might just be a Southern thing but she loves the texture and shine
Yep TOGM was proud of it.  It is hanging by the front door.
The bow was not included in the work shop.  Mom bought it at the there though
and it was just the final touch needed.
