Thoroughly Poetic and Thankful Thursday

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

Today's inspiration


Dancers have great rhythm!
Movin' and groovin' to the tunes
They must practice their moves over and over.
He in the gym she in the studio
Cheek to cheek eyes locked on the other's
She must trust him as they bend and stretch
as he sweeps her off her feet.

Side story:
When I was a senior in high school, adult volunteers were needed.   My dad was an electrical contractor.   I volunteered Daddy to help with the lighting.  Daddy always had a good eye
for detail.  It was a magical night.
Little did I know, my parents and the other adult volunteers, would be asked to be chaperones at the Prom. When the music started, most of the kids didn't move.
The adults were the first on the floor...all about my parent's age.
Lo and behold they all started dancing the Jitterbug.
I had no idea my parents could move like that.

Today Pup and Kat are joining
Thankful Thursday with Brian and his Siblings
Hosted by Brian 

Dearest Aunty HiC
Guess what?!?
Today, 11/21, is Mom and Dad's 25th wedding anniversary.  💕
Pup and I are so very THANKFUL to be surrounded by their love and devotion

Mom says Dad still makes her blush. 😻
And Dad says Mom still makes him laugh. 😹
Sounds like the purr-fect combination for a successful relationship: love and laughter.

Oh Dearest Nephew...

Yep they have found the perfect combination to happiness.
Lovingly your Aunty HiC


  1. Love the poem.
    We didn't have High School Proms in the UK and I think as a teenager I would have died of embarrassment is my parents had come along and taken to the dance floor!
    Happy Anniversary to Pup and Kat's Mom and Dad, and please thank them for the photos.
    Cheers! Gail.

  2. Oh I bet that was a surprise!!! ...and I wish to go back to this time and watch the dancers for a while...

  3. MOL, that is too funny! My momma skipped her prom - and it wuz a good thing judging by what she heard somebody was saying about her there - she mighta gotten in trubbull for fighting, MOL!

  4. Love the jitterbug poem and story! Happy 25th Anniversary to Kat and Pup's peeps!

  5. The poem is terrific. We have a big picture of the parents doing the jitterbug. Bet that was fun. Have a great day.

  6. That's a cool memory Cecilia. I bet your jaw dropped when you saw your parents shakin' and groovin'.

    Kat and Pup you are 2 handsome dudes. Happy anniversary to your Mom and Dad.

  7. Hari OM
    LOL - it is one of those rights of passage when we are young, I think, to see our parents as young and fun people themselves!

    Congrats to the Travellers for the special occasion!!! YAM xx

  8. Oh I love this poem AND your memory with all the parents breaking into the jitterbug!! Fun to think about things "the way they were" back then. Love the photos of the Anniversary Family in Nevada too - what a special place to spend a special occasion.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  17. No matter how old you are, when you witness your parents doing something 'cool', it's very weird!

    1. I purposely turned off the comments on my Wednesday post, so that wasn't the fault of your computer!

  18. I love that the adults were out on the floor and doing their thang! I wish I could have seen that. We didn't;t have such a cool happening at our dances. Same ol' same ol'. Congratulations to Pup and Kat's parents! I love that they have stayed together and content all this time. XXOO

  19. Great poem and such a sweet story about your folks. Happy Anniversary to Kat's folks. XO

  20. If you did that now your kids would be upset that you embarrassed them.

  21. That must have been fun...and a little embarrassing to see your parents doing the jitterbug!

  22. That is a very cool story abouts your peeps!!! Though, I don't knows how happy I would have been if my Dad was at my Prom! ☺
    HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO KAT AND PUPS PEEPS!!!! What a lovely cardie, and love story!
    Ruby ♥

  23. I'm glad my son always saw me as the "cool" parent who could really dance. :) But I would have probably felt like you did when you saw your parents on the dance floor if my Mom had done that. Wishing Kat's parents many more happy years together. Amy

  24. I would love to know how to dance but I have two left feet. Happy 25th anniversary to Kat & Pup's peeps.

  25. Happy Anniversary to Kat's pawrents!! LOve that your parents got on the dance floor to jitter bug!!!!
