Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #37

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


Here is today's inspiration
English Cottage

Today I'm going to try to tell you a true story by way of poetry.
Background:  my DNA is English, Scottish and Irish
1968 my first job at NC State University in: Mechanical and Aerospace Department, one of my favorite Professors was from England.


One day maybe in May
in walked Professor Bailey
He always had a smile and a kind word.
He was a little person with a huge personality.
While opening his mail he was
listening to the conversations we gals were having.
All discussing our DNAs and things
we learned from our families along the way.
I was proudly proclaiming my DNA
English with a hint of Scottish and Irish they say.
The top of Professor Bailey's head was just visible over the counter
I noticed a bit of mischievous sparkle in his eyes.
He looked at me with a smile saying,
"My Dear Cecilia you are 100% Southern American thru and thru,
not a spot of English do I see or hear in you!!"

************************
When I saw this English Cottage, the conversation with Professor Bailey popped in my head. In fact any time I'm asked my family background, I get a big smile
on my face thinking about Professor Bailey.
Maybe I'm Southern American with a splash of English, Scottish and Irish
to spice up the mix.

Happy Tuesday Ta(i)les


More snippets of snap shots from our Saturday cruisin'
Happy Curly Puppy Tail 
Friendly Raccoon
 While riding thru one area I kept seeing these signs.
Finally we stopped.  What a wonderful way to welcome students to 
the start of a school year in spite of it all being Virtual Learning.
Randy (I named him) Raccoon is the mascot for Aldert Root Elementary School here in Raleigh.
What a happy and unique way to make the students feel a part of the school.....
from home.

Awww Monday and Sparks







Happy Accident Photo.  I went out to get the newspaper lo and behold the Man in the Moon
was in his full splendor.  Sun rising behind me and moon setting in front of me.
The blue of the sky and them full moon were stunning.  Too bad I don't have a fancy camera with a long lens..this was taken with my iPad.

Life is like Ground hog day nowadays...
Several of you saw this lovely pup
on Wednesday...then my 2nd post popped up.  She is such a beauty
I'm posting her again. I mistakenly set 2 posts
I know Angel Madi's head is hanging in shame.  Madi ran a tight ship..if she were here I'd be walking the plank for sure.

HARRIET, 
We met her on Saturday..
She is an Australian Doodle
Quite the lady too!!
What a beautiful girl and look at the 
profile.  Humans pay big bucks
to get fur this color and this soft.

Pickles by Brian Crane
Pickles Comic Strip for September 04, 2020
Some time ago I read an article about Brian Crane. When asked where he gets his ideas for Pickles he said he always keeps his eyes and ears on alert for ideas.
Most come from every day life with family and friends.  I'd love to be a fly on the wall at a family reunion.
