Moon Stories
by Madi and Mom 
The year was '69 way before my time.
News of a trip to the moon was all the buzz
Way back then mom was no  mom but she was gainfully employed
in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace at NC State.
She told me all the peeps there were very excited.
Work came to a halt the moon walk was at fault.

The year is now 2014 Blogville was in the midst of matching making theme.
This kitty was ready and willing to join in the fun
I  threw my name in the hat and waited for my man cat
Lo and behold a purrfect match was found and that was that
His name was Raz and OMC he was full of charm.
This lady cat quickly grabbed his arm.
Our third date was out of this world.
 A trip to the Space Station was what he proposed.  
I was alarmed but he said no worries you will come to no harm.
Raz bought us matching Space Suits and we were so cute.
Off to the Space Station we went.
My head was spinning with glee.
We saw the moon and the stars 
We floated free with ease just 
Raz and Me
Sincerely Space Cadet Madi

Sailing
by Madi and Mom
Tall ships gliding smoothly over the glassy sea
Oh me
Bellowing white sails full of wind and mist.
Oh me
White capped waves lapping the hull and wetting the deck
Oh me
Deck hands cleverly manning the sails with skill and ease
Oh me
Red skies at night a sailor's delight
Oh me
Red skies in the morning a sailor's warning
Oh me
A sailor's life is not easy
Oh me
Once the salty air fills his lungs, his soul will forever roam the seas.
Oh me.

Steps
a Poetic Story
Fondly dedicated to our pal George the Lad from years gone by...

Once there was a Welsh Terrier name George the Lad
Across the pond he lived with his Mom and Dad
We met George early fall of two thousand and ten.
He had a fascination with steps.
 I said YEP George would love these steps.
To the delight of all George started Step Saturday.
George set his sights on finding the best steps inside and out.
It was his mission to find steps grand and glorious
hidden and dark. 
Some covered in moss some not.  Steps older than mom
and oh the stories those steps could have told.
In the spring George's peeps made a Flat George
They inquired, who  would like a visit from Flat George.
I quickly raised my paw and said pick me, Please pick me.
Flat George's mum slapped my addy on the envelope...
As they say the rest, Folks, is history.

Oh Angel Sammy and Mom ...you find the most amazing photos for our

Puppy Love 
By madi and mom
When first he held up his fuzzy pup to his chin,
his grin stretched from ear to ear.
His round eyes were full of glee
The smile on his face was oh so free.
He knew his new friend would follow him around his 
world and back again. Their love would grow
their bond would be tight.
At night as they snuggled close in the bed,
both tired but full of happy dreams to rock them
in to a slumber their shared.

Thursday Poetic Pictorial Post #6

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

First of all we wanted to tell Angel Sammy and TeddyButterbean and Mom
thank you for this photo.  My mom is a huge fan of hot air balloons from the ground.
When in a gift shop she is drawn to all things cat like, hot air balloons and hummingbirds.
As you will see at the end..... 

Up up and away
I love balloons no matter the size
Mylar, rubber or cloth they all tickle my fancy.
They delight my senses as they rise and float.
To spot a hot air balloon sends my eyes skyward 
The places and things that one could see make my mind's eye 
full of excitement.
If given an chance to float in the sky, I would say no not I.
My spirit is free and ready to fly
My head is not willing and my legs are like jelly.
I must confess this old gal has two fears 
One is fire and I am extremely height shy!
So content I will be to gaze up with envy as those graceful balloons are 
given flight by fire that makes the soar to heights I don't care for.

This rainbow hot air balloon hang above my tunnels

Mom says it is very authentic it even has weights on it and we love the basket




My hot air balloon wind sock

Today we join


I'm very thankful to be able to report that my blood work to recheck my kidney function was
on January 12, 2018
All of the levels of concern, Creatine and phosphorus are down.  My wonderful Vet, Dr. Szabo was very very pleased.
We will continue on as we have been doing with the phosphorus binder and the
SubQ fluids.  I don't have to visit Tech Dracula for at least 3 or 4 months.

HAND
by Madi

He had heard of the beach and wanted to play in the sand.
Little did he know things would happen not even planned.
The look of awe when he saw the waves and the sand 
 brought wonder a new to the faces of all women and men.
His dad said lets walk in the water we can  feel sand 
squish between our toes.  
His toothy smile was full of wander and glee when he said
yes lets do that Dad...can I hold your HAND?

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday #4

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




OMCs are we excited about today's picture from Angel Sammy and
TeddyBean.  Even if our poem is horrid the photo is worth one 
million words. Don't you just love the stone work here!!


From the ground I started as a wee little twig
Will I bare apples, pears or perhaps figs.
My trunk is curvy my limbs go off in twos.
My family tree is rocky.
Sometimes at night I look very spooky.
