Thankful Thursday

Gen-Chan: Today is a  major holiday across the Big Ocean so we would like to wish all our American friends a Very Happy Thanksgiving! Although it is just an ordinary day here in France, we would like to express our own thankfulness for all the gifts that life has brought us.

We are thankful that both #1 and the Big Cat are safely back after those big adventures. Ms. A drove #1 and Tommy back up to the garage yesterday afternoon, on her way home, and the two of them eventually made it home at 7pm. They were tired but it was a good evening at Poupounette Central. By the way, we are also very thankful for the huge carload of stuff #1 brought back, much of it for us!

We are thankful for our house and the lovely nature around it:

We are thankful to be together and belong to the same family, even our barn owl friends in the attic! We are also thankful for all our wonderful friends across the Blogosphere, who have enriched our lives immeasurably over the past few years.

And I know how thankful you will be for a couple of photos of me!!! Here is my meditative thankful pose:

And my "I've got my eye on YOU" pose!

    We came by from Poppy Q's blog where we saw your comment that you post photos under 100kb. We're not sure if you're aware and please don't chase us with a broom if you already know this, but 2 or 3 years ago, Blogger changed its policy and you can post all the photos you want under 800 pixels wide x 800 pixels high without using any of your storage.


Thanks for visiting our blog! We love getting comments.
