Thankful Thursday

. . . . . . . .even IF it is almost Friday. The OP Pack is struggling to keep their blog up to date. But we do want to thank some very nice furiends for sharing some awards with us. We hope they will forgive us for being so late in thanking them.

First up is the Versatile Blogger award. It has been a very popular one around the land of blogs. We received it this time from both Katie the Rescued Border Collie and from Fenris, Scylla, Socks, and Artemisia.

We have received this award before and have already shared some fun facts about us, so we will just say we are very thankful to our pals for sending it our way. We haven't been too versatile lately with our blogging. We have almost disappeared:)

And then our very good furiend Ginger Jasper from across the Big Pond, reminded us that Life is Good, always a nice thing to try to remember when the going gets rough. Thanks, GJ - we love this pretty award.

It did come with a bit of a quiz. We will do our best to answer.

1. What would your perfect day consist of?

Since we are sibes, you have to know that the best day is one filled with snow and lots of it.

2. How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing?

Soft and thick and warm snugglies.

3. What hobbies are you currently working on?

Ciara - gardening:)
Thunder Dunder - critter hunting and snake snacking
Phantom - meteorological research on eliminating thunderstorms

4. Walking in the woods in wellies or bare foot on the beach?

We don't wear no stinking footwear, so definitely pawfoot on the beach - can you please help us find a beach in eastern Kansas?

5. Have you ever hugged or sang to a tree?

Ummmm . . . . we have wrapped our leashes around a few trees - does that count?

6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket?

Ciara hasn't been too successful with the garden yet so the boys would like an order from Petsmart, please.

7. Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree?

TD and Ciara's father is Mel Gibson. No kidding either.

8. Slap up meal in a posh restaurant or fish ‘n’ chips from the wrapper?

Any kind of fish would be a big hit here.

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or Water?

This one is definitely meant for Ciara and TD - WATER, WATER, WATER - they LOVE the rain.

We couldn't let this post be complete without a group pic. Wonder what is making us all so happy?

And at least one of our readers seems to be starving for a Ciara fix - hope this does the trick.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

While you're trying to keep your blog up to date, we're trying to catch up with all the blog posts we've missed (OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS ... THANKS MOMA!) We hope you haven't furgotten us 'cause we sure haven't furgotten you. In fact, we talked about you lots and lots a week ago Friday night. We spent the night at the Drury Inn on Metcalf at 435 ... got in late and went to the cemetery in the dark. We wished your sissie in law a happty birthday and promised each other that next time we're through OP we want to try hard to meet up.

We're off to read now ... we've admittedly missed so much. But we knew we'd be back and we knew we'd be happy once we got back. And we are.

Hope all is well. Thanks for your patience with us...
Jake and Fergi and Family

Hey, I know that Mel Gibson! He's my Aunt Cameron, Drew and Lucy's daddy! My mom has met him too. She thinks he's very handsome!

I like to garden too. Actually, we all do! It 's so much fun, so we understand why Ciara likes it so much!
