Happy Thanksgiving

 Happy Thanksgiving from me and Mum. We are thankful to have each other. Sharing the roof over our heads and foods on the table. We are blessed!
Hope that everyone is Thankful for what we have and not worry about what we don't have and likely don't need.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Grace knows she's a very lucky ladycat who is loved by everyone around! 

Here she is, demonstrating two things she's very thankful to have: a nice warm bed, just for her, and her loving son who likes to be nearby in case his momma wants to give him a bath!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!


~ My Family ~
I am so blessed to have a loving and wonderful family.
Wishing you and your family love and happiness this Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving Delights
On Thanksgiving Day we're thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.

For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.

We're grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.

The list of all we're grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!

By Joanna Fuchs


I, Ali, am thankful for my human.  She feeds me, cleans out my litter box, gives me treats and toys to play with.  Mostly she gives me love and I love her back.

Remember. Dat one word rings loud and true. Remember lest we furget and be doomed to repeat our mistakes. Today is Veteran’s day here in da U.S. and we are sendin’ out our thanks and deepest gratitude to those who serve both past and present. We thank you fur goin’ to purrtect us. We thank you fur standin’ watch on da wall while we sleep peacefully in our beds. We thank you fur leavin’ your family and friends to go far away to places where you’re not always wanted. We thank your families fir sharin’ you with all of America. We thank you fur those Americans who bash you. We proudly salute you and send you our purrayers.

We started writing this last night and mommy got to emotional so we stopped and came back to it this meownin’. Meez blog is not pawlitical. But in case it wasn’t clear, We are very patriotic and believe in the Constitution of the United States purrtectin’ our God given rights. We know dat our fureedom came/comes at a very high price. We live furee cuz there were and are those willin’ to fight and die to purrserve dat fureedom.

While lookin’ fur foto ops on da innernet we found lots of happy Veteran’s day templates, but what’s so happy ‘bout a day dat recognizes so much loss? Da loss of fathers, sons, brothers, sisters, daughters, husbands, wives; da loss of limbs and in sum cases sanity. We are one small voice but we are shouting, Thank You and God Bless America.

Father we come to You in the name of Jesus and we ask that You keep Your hand on all those serving in our military. Many are far from home and loved ones. Many are scared and lost. Our government is trying to keep the very freedoms they are fighting for away from them because it’s offensive to those we are trying to help. We ask You give strength to these men and women and clarity of thought. Let them know You are there when the darkness of night sweeps over them and the sun beats down on their face. Comfort their families waiting back home for them. Bring peace where there is no peace. And bring our soldiers home. Let our country heal. For all those who served and never came home alive, give hope and peace to their families knowing that they served honorably and died to protect us. Help those of us at home to remember how our country became great. Our freedoms came at the cost of the life’s blood of our soldiers. Lord, help us to remember, lest we repeat our mistakes. And God, bless America in Jesus Name, Amen.

Till da next time………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses

Grace and I are very thankful for ALL our veterans, as well as those currently serving in our country's military. We love 'em all!!

Veterans Day

We are joining the Tabby Cat Club today in honoring our Veterans for their sacrifices that have kept so many safe and our proud country free.

Our Great Grandpa served in WWII and was a POW.
 We are humbled by you all.
Thank you.

Veteran's Day

Today is a day we have set aside to honor all those who have served their country in the past or are currently serving.   They sacrifice so much to make sure all of us are safe and secure and continue enjoying our "land of the free and home of the brave".

My Mom's Dad was a career Air Force officer.   He joined the Army Air Corps BEFORE there was an Air Force but was soon as the Air Force was organized, that's where he began his long career.   He LOVED being a serviceman.   He had a number of assignments overseas and that's why my Mom has seen a lot of the world and it's where she developed her LOVE of travel which she enjoys to this day.

My Granddad passed away in 1992.   He served during WWII and the Korean War.  He's buried at Arlington National Cemetery within sight of one of his favorite places to do a tour of duty - The Pentagon.

This is a photo of him and the necklace he gave my Mom not long before he passed away.
This is my Granddad walking my Mom down the aisle in 1990..............he loved wearing his uniform and although he'd retired MANY years before the wedding, he was so proud wearing his suit to escort my Mom.  

I want to say that I'm proud of EVERYONE who serves their country........and I hope on this Veteran's Day, we can honor each and every one of them and say a prayer for them and their families - a prayer of thanks for their sacrifices.
