Thanks-Blogville and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today we join 

I have a lot to be thankful for today.
First things first!! To  all of you reading this

I am just 3 1/2 months from my 16th Meowday (3/11/02) and exactly
7 months from my 9th blogaversary (6/23/09). 
What a wild and fun time we have had over the last
8 1/2 years and it is all because of the citizens of Blogville. Little did we know in the early months of 2009 the journey we were about to have. We quickly learned life is all about the journey not the destination. The friendships formed the things we learned and OMCs how far mom has come she can do more than type now!!.

We thank each and every friend/furiend
we have made since we became citizens of Blogville in 2009. Mom
has 87 million of you to thank for all the things you taught her. Each of you have enriched our lives with your friendship, willingness to help
and support each other and us no matter what the circumstances, happy or sad. 

You are our cyber family!!

Words cannot describe how much we look forward to each and every post you lovingly
prepare. Often I am napping near by when mom reads your blogs...she rattles the
rafters and wakes me from a deep sleep with her
Thanks to Blogville
I have faced some health issues this year and we thank all of your for your support and for the emails or comment inquiring about my Diva-ness. 
In August my prognosis was guarded. Here we are 3 months later.
With the help of our dear Vet Dr. S and all the techs who helped mom learn to
give me my fluids and my pills we are managing!!
Mom has come upon a schedule that works and keeps my tummy happy. 
We three seniors are living and loving and enjoying each day.


Mom offered to cook for Uncle and Auntie K....just like last year but lo and behold 
Auntie K said, " I would really like to cook this year is that ok with you?" 
MOM said Y E S almost before Auntie K finished her sentence.
Now if mom just remembers to bring some turkey home for a starving Diva!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all and may your time with family and friends be filled with lots 
of love and memories
Hugs Madi and Mom

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Teddy and Angel Sammy


Our two ginger-men did not give us word prompts today.
They told us X is a hard word and to write about anything.
Today's post is brought to you by the letter
Xcitement is what I felt when I realized it was X day
Xactly how I was going to rhyme
Was something I hoped would come to mind
Xcept what I had in my mind was only a scheme
Xtreme glee filled my cup when
Madi finally said, Mom give it up, there is no Xrta time
You will never Xcel at poetry unless
you Xerox one from the pages of time.
X's and O's
Madi and Mom
