Thankful Thursday


We are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday today as we show our appreciation to some wonderful friends.


Mom, we know that you JUST sat down and that you worked really hard to get everything ready for all the family fun to come starting tomorrow, but we really need you to help us thank a couple of good pals for their kindness.

A few weeks ago, that handsome rabbit Speedy, the cheeky house bunny, sponsored a contest from the ASPCA.  You can read all about it HERE.



We were lucky enough to have Speedy select our name as the winner of the great prizes in the photo above. We received a super duper frisbee, a very nice tote bag, and a really cool water bottle for Mom to take with her in the car.  Thank you, Speedy and your very nice Mom, for this wonderful package of prizes.



Wait, Mom - you aren't done yet - we have one more special pal to thank.  Remember, we got Royal Mail from a princess!!!



Princess Leah went on a trip to her special Tower at Chatters-a-Way House.  We love seeing all the beautiful sites at her Tower. And she was thoughtful enough to send us a postcard just to say hi.





We turned the card sideways so you could read her message.  We especially loved the licky kisses:)



Look at that SNOW!!!!  More than we got all last winter.  With the temps close to 100 degrees F here, that snow is doing wonders to help us feel cool. Now we are dreaming of winter and hoping it isn't too far away.

Thanks to Speedy and Princess Leah for being such great friends and sending us these delightful things.  It is wonderful to have pals like you.




OK, Mom - you can relax now. Wait, would you mind getting me a cookie first?

One last thing - Happy Birthday to our Dad, to the grandkiddos Dad J, and to our cousin pup Duncan - yep, they all share the same special day:)

Woos - Lightning and Misty

You two are sure lucky to have so much to be thankful for, including such good friends. Princess Leah really is a sweet girlie! She sent me a postcard too! Hope you all have some great birthday celebrations. Hope things cool off for you too. We had another storm today. Ghostwriter is worried that if this rain pattern keeps up through the winter, we'll be buried in snow! She told Dad he'd better get a snow blower for sure this year!

It's 0°C here this morning. That card just made us feel colder. Hope it works for you! We're sure you'll have a wonderful weekend...full of pats and treats. Enjoy all the chaos.

You will love the Frisbee. Fenris won one from Speedy a few years ago and it was a favorite toy for a very long time, until some human we shall not named threw it where it couldn't be retrieved.

Happy Birthday to your Dad,the grandkiddos Dad J, and to Duncan, we hope they all have a great day. Boy do you have a lot of celebrating to do.
