Thoroughly Poetic and Thankful Thursday #82


Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is


Wild and fierce in the sea
A necessity from the tap
Terrifying if accompanied by hurricane force winds
Erie during a storm
Run fast if you see it this high

Thank you Brian for hosting


Long time readers know I have mad puppy love for Cody. Each time I see him I am thankful he brings a smile to my face and what a testament to keep on keeping on....

Saturday, August 13, about 7:45 am. He was resting his senior bones comfortably. I snapped this photo.  As I rounded the corner there he was......

Waiting for me on the sidewalk.  Bless he sweet heart he got up to greet me. I was so excited the photo is not in focus.

OH MS you made me giggle...I'm so sorry but I'm with you I can have the oddest accidents. A week or so ago while preparing to take my shower.  I was in the master closet (where the hamper is located).  In hindsight,  I was too close to the door frame, when I took off one of my ankle socks. My hand went rogue flew toward the door frame. My index finger slammed into the frame at Mach speed. It hit right smack on my knuckle and good googly gook it bled. I had to keep a band aid on it for about a week due to the location and it being my right hand. Every movement I made opened up the cut

To which she replied
If I had been drinking something, I would have spewed it out. this made me burst into laughter. gone rogue! and good googly gook it bled had me roaring. what is up with our body parts that they go rogue?

BOL LOL MOL so glad you enjoyed it. It was a crazy thing. Never in all my years of taking off socks or hose or shoes have I ever done anything like this.  My only explanation was the ankle socks were fitted.  When I stuck my thumb into the edge to pull it off, I pulled so hard that my thumb slipped out and my hand when rogue.

So friends, there you have wackiness it in the life and times of MadSnapper and My Mind's Eye.  We both are firm believers in not taking ourselves too seriously.

Serene Sunday in Wolf Pack Country

Recently we drove thru  N C State University Campus. This photo was taken Dan Allen Drive which is the main road through main campus.  Often you'll see picnics in progress in the spring. On the other side of the grove of trees is Pullen Park.

In January 2006 my office moved from main campus to Centennial campus.
This is the entrance to Centennial Campus

The Wolf Line made it easy and convenient to get to and from each campus.
The NCSU Mascot is a Wolf.  You'll see the word wolf a lot. 

I worked in the Partners III building (picture below)  on first floor.
My boss was in the corner office on first floor with the white awning and all the windows.
My office was be across the hall. 

Lots and lots of new buildings on Centennial now.

Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral is a few blocks from NCSU Centennial Campus
This is just a portion of the Cathedral  it is huge.
