Thoroughly Poetic Thankful Thimble Thursday

We have yet again reached the eve of Friday. Hooray! As always, we're going to start today with the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge, hosted by Angel Sammy and Teddy.

Today, we've reached the letter S. Can anyone guess who we have for you to meet today?

Sammy the Scientist

Carbon tetrahydride and methane,
They’re really quite the same.
As for methylene chloride and dichloromethane,
Their difference is only in the name.
Oh, we’re sorry.
Is this lesson boring?
Sammy is giddy over it, though.
It’s science like this that he loves to know.
After all, Sammy the Scientist is a pro,
At least when it comes to molecular weight and electron flow.

If you have questions all about science,
On Sammy’s knowledge you can be reliant.
Do you wish to know about alkanes, alkenes, or alkynes?
All of these terms Sammy the Scientist can help you define.
He can also teach you a thing or two about entropy,
And can even draw you a diagram if that’s what you’d like to see.

Sammy’s knowledge on science is ever so boundless.
He even knows that outer space is not all that soundless.
But all that aside,
In Sammy the Scientist you can confide.
He will happily be your science guide.

Of course, this week's poem was inspired by none other than our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday host, Angel Sammy! Do be sure to visit him and his brother Teddy. Speaking of which, can you guess who we have for next week's T poem? Well, anyway, for now here is Sammy the Scientist's little doodle:

Now it's Thimble's turn to show you what all she's been up to. After all, Thursday is for Thimbles.

Unsurprisingly, Thimble has been spending plenty of time in her library, guarding her beloved books. Her favorite is when she's lucky enough to enjoy some sunshine in that library of hers.

Of course, Thimble wants to enter her beloved library and sunshine in Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

We have so much for which to be thankful. All of us here are so grateful that our pup Astrid's toe amputation following her sarcoma diagnosis was successful. We are so happy to have her home and recovering. Final biopsy of the toe is still pending, but we are nonetheless thankful for the progress so far.

In addition, we are also of course grateful for you wonderful friends of ours!

Happy Thursday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Did you know that studies have revealed honey to have healing properties? Our vet recently mentioned that, should Astrid's incision need assistance in healing faster, they could apply a honey bandage. That being said, there is medical-grade honey available, as regular honey purchased at a grocery store may not be sterile enough to have proper healing effects. Not just can honey be used for wounds, though, but it also offers a great source of sugar for hypoglycemic patients. If a kitty or pup is diabetic and in a hypoglycemic emergency, rubbing honey on their gumline or in their cheeks can often help to correct the hypoglycemia. Honey can be a very beneficial substance, but of course do consult your veterinarian with any questions regarding your furbaby's health and how to use honey if it is needed.

What a great poem for Sammy. Mom says that she's going to need to contact him at the RB to get definitions of all those terms. Let's see, could next week's poem be about Teddy? Can't wait to read it. Our mom sometimes calls him the Tedonator! More love, prayers, purrs and POTP for Asrid. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

I purrsonally LOVE your Sammy poem for the letter S!!! And I am thankful that Astrid's surgery went OK. I and my Mommy will be purraying that she is now A-OK!
And Thimble I too love to read. I hear there is a library in Midway with Daddy, Kozmo, Jo Jo and Cinnamon, but here, in the townhouse with Mommy, there are only her Pop-up books as Mommy now reads on a e-reader.

Oh that Angel smart! Thimble, looking glorious today as ever. Here's hoping that Astrid is enjoying her pretty plastic collar, and healing up quickly!

I love the poem and the drawing of Angel Sammy, they are purrfect. Thimble is such a cutie. I knew honey had healing properties, but had no idea there was medical grade honey.
