The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
What a wonderful posting! It's an honour to meet your parents. They did a great job in raising their children well. The gratitude in your heart proves it.

Lovely, Jams. What a beautiful tribute!
Beautiful post. I'm thankful to my parents too. This theme is getting me all teary eyed. :)I hope you are feeling better - have a nice restful weekend.
Bless you, Jams, for honoring your parents in this way. So much character in these beautiful faces.
I've spending today catching up with my blog-reading today, as I've not done much since that horrid mugging incident. I'm so sorry to hear that you lost little Mimi - I've only just found out. I can't understand how I missed your post - I guess that's what having a knife at your throat does for you. Little Mimi was lucky to have been taken in by you and the not-wife - most people won't consider adopting a disabled pet - and she will have had a wonderful, happy life with you and the other kitties. Once again, I'm so sorry to hear about her loss, and also, sorry to be so late in offering my sympathies. Take care...
My dear Irish bloggerfriend,it seems that we have the same idea regarding Thankful.
