Friendly Fill-Ins and Flashback Friday

We're pawticipating in Friendly Fill-ins sponsored by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing.

We're going to share the answers.......Raz, Mom, Allie, Mom

1. I can’t wait to eat ___TURKEY!_____ on Thanksgiving.
2. My favorite kind of pie is ____Pumpkin chiffon (My Dad's recipe)_______.
3. This year, I am particularly thankful for         My family and my husband Mau.  Even though our Daddy is gone I am thankful for the time we had with him.

4. A funny holiday tradition in my/our house is that Bill and I would always get up early and go to our Walmart to watch the Black Friday shoppers.   I won't be doing that this year without him.

Today is also Flashback Friday.   Angel Ellie loved to sit on the Thanksgiving rug.

Poetic Thankful Thursday

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

Today's letter is "W" and the prompt words are....

(1) Window (2) Wink (3) Worry (4) Wiggle

Our (very short)  poem is titled


Do cats WINK?
Why yes, we think!
It means we like you
and that is true.
So if we WINK
watch us and don't blink

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Allie is THANKFUL that this isn't the turkey we'll be having for Thanksgiving next week.

Monday Sparks

Today we're joining the new blog hop called Sparks that was started by McGuffy's Reader.
Here are the details from their blog:

Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 

The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 

I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.

Here's our SPARKS for today!

Sunday Selfies with a guest

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.

We have a special selfie today!   We have a VISITOR!!

Hey Raz.....who is this?????

We're happy to say that the very famous BASHFUL is here to spend the holidays with us!! If you are not familiar with Bashful, he belongs to our pal Bacon from PigLove.   Here's a little info on Bashful from Bacon's blog:

 I also have a pet rock named Bashful. He knows a lot of tricks like stay, sit, be quiet and dad taught him how to play dead. Bashful is a happening pebble. He is definitely the “international rolling stone“.  He goes to all kinds of different places and stays with host families having adventures.  His first trip was to France and was amazing!  As Bashful has traveled, he has picked up a few friends of his own.  They now live with us as well at the Hotel Thompson.  Check back often because the rock friends are growing!  I hope you enjoy our blog!  Hogs and snout kisses – Bacon 

One of the first thing Bashful wanted to do was take a selfie.  He figured his family would like seeing that he made it here safe and sound.   

Stay tuned for fun adventures with Bashful!!
