First Dad thanks everyone for the lovely wishes yesterday.
They celebrated all day beginning with breakfast at 
Panera then mom and dad's BFFS came over for lunch here at our house (OMCs did they bring some fine aromas of Mara the Lab with them). I tell you 4 humans can make a lot of noise but a good time was had by all.  I even sashayed in and out of the room several times.

time to be take a spit bath
I get no privacy so I'll just carry on

Final Friday Fiction and Flower Friday

Today we are once again thrilled to be pawticipating in YAM-Aunty's

We selected lines 8, 12 and 16 from page 87 in a book as our prompts.
We are using 
The Snow Dogs of Lost Lake, by Dorothy Bodoin.****
**** Molly my AireDale gal pal and her mom have been sharing this most wonderful series of books by Ms. Bodoin with us for several months.

line 8
I glanced at my own house, no multicolored lights 

line 12
 I'd do some more decorating
line 16
my friend and neighbor.

This month we're trying a poem in honor of my sweet husband's birthday. 

Today is a special day you see
It is the birthday of the hubby of me.
As I took a walk down the drive way,
I was deep in thought about this day
I glanced at my own house, to surprise him
no multicolored lights would be on display.  
 I'd do some more decorating,
it would be simple and fresh just like Spring.
My friend and neighbor, is quite clever.  
Give her a theme or a favorite color
She will plan an event like no other.
While this may be true dear hubby of me,
I know your ideal birthday theme is low key
filled with Ice Cream (cake) sunshine,
no rain so you can ride the train.
Happy Happy Bday from me and your bonsai bunny Madi

This is a blog here to read other fun stories

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Here is today's pictorial prompt

Mystical Maybes

What I see as I look at this tree
Could easily be a mystery to thee.
My mind's eye is momentarily drawn to the light.
I asked myself if there life in the tree
Possibly there is more to see.
Maybe .....
A critter standing tall above us all. 
His feet are planted firmly in mossy earth
His head is covered in multiple layers and shades of green.
His long snout stretched toward the moon.
You say it is neither a critter nor a light 
It is just a Tree
