Thoroughly Thankful Throwback Poetic Thursday

  Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.
Here is our photo challenge

Penguin Love
is way better than Muskrat Love)
sang by Cap'n and Tennille 

Just as their day was about to begin,
Papa Penguin said to Petey Penquin,
 My love for you makes my head spin.
Petey Penguin was vertically challenged!
He was not close enough to hear.
Papa decided to show Petey instead.
Petey, he said, I love you from the top of my
Emperor head all the way down to my giant web feet.
My love for you is as deep as the snow.
Most of all I want you to know
I love you *2 hours and a bunch*,
which is more than
I love my fishes at LUNCH.

*This phrase was invented by my daughter.
 When she was a toddler, SHE hated to take naps.
Every day at nap time, she would ask the same question.
 How long do I have to nap?
My reply was about 2 hours, which was an eternity to a busy little girl.
Then one day she spread her arms just like Papa Penguin
while saying, I love you 2 hours and a bunch.
2 hours and a bunch became our affection phrase.

Today I'm so very thankful for each you who have made 
my 10 years of blogging such fun.
Most of all I'm thankful for my sweet Angel Madi.
Simply said:
Without Madi, I would not have had all these amazing experiences which gave me the opportunity to meet each of you and your furries.
That itty bitty kitty is for sure the
Reason for my Being here!!  
She was my Soul and Inspiration.

Happy 10th Blogaversary to us.
my very first post featuring my side kick Madi.
She was the soul and inspiration behind this blog!!!!

  26. Happy 10th blogoversary! That is incredible. I think "I love you two hours and a bunch" is one of the cutest phrases ever. My granddaughter is 3 and not a big nap fan either. It's cool now because they have monitors where you can watch what they are doing in their room. #Technology


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
