Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Teddy and Angel Sammy

This will be our 3rd attempt at poetry from A-Z
Angel Sammy and Teddy are changing it up a bit.
They are giving us a choice of words to use.  Mom
jumped the gun last week by writing her poem early so she 
is using her own word.  She promises to be less of a rebel 
from now on!


Apes like grapes this I know to be true
Apes are hairy, they never need capes , 
Apes are 'pickers' of this I'm sure. 
For this there is no cure.
Apes use their thumbs not for hitching
but for holding the grapes, 
picking at nits and finding pits.
However, they cannot knit!

Sincerely Madi and mom


  1. You did a lot better than we'd do. We're not so good with poetry

  2. MOL! Things about apes that I never knew.

  3. hahah good idea... and you can use the ape for the next letter too... they like bananas as much as grapes :O)

  4. Someone somewhere this minute is trying to teach an ape to knit, I am quite sure of it!
    Toodle pip!

  6. I had not idea apes can't knit. MOL MOL... I like the one on your kitchen table..and tell your assistant good job on the poem...

  7. Great poem, Madi and Mom. We like that a lot. You all have some fun today.

  8. hahaha, good poem. I would have failed the challenge miserably.

  9. Madi I knew your Mom had to get knit in there somewhere! Thanks for asking about my appointment with the specialist which was Wednesday. I had a lot of blood work done and a ophthalmology examine.  Vitiligo can have a great effect on my eyes.
    After the blood work comes back a core punch biopsy will be done.  Less than 2% of dogs are affected with this. Blood might be able to give us a reason for this and the biopsy to come will tell us the degree of progressiveness.
    Thanks for being a friend

  15. Nice poem, Madi. Mom remembers when she was a little girl there was a zoo near her home. There was a monkey house there with lots of different kinds of apes. She always liked to give them bubble gum and watch them unwrap the Bazooka and then actually chew it.
