Cyndi: Today is Thankful Thursday. I think maybe we should be thankful for Jan.
Merci: Why, did she buy us a present?
Cyndi: No, but she's been working so hard at spring cleaning, I figure we should do something nice for her.
Merci: You mean before she makes us help?
Cyndi: No. A lot of the stuff she's moving around belongs to us and we are responsible for some of the mess she's cleaning.
Merci: Hmmmm. You're right. We do tend to make a mess. Fur everywhere. Barf anywhere. Beds dragged into the walking area. Large bags of food and litter to store in a small house. Toys, brushes ... Yeah, guess we are a little work for her.
Cyndi: It's a lot harder since she hasn't been able to do it for several years. At least three.
Merci: Let's see, in 2010, Jan had the injured toe that got infected and she could barely walk for several months. In 2011, she again tried to fly while you, Buddy & Sam were walking her, and she crash landed on the sidewalk. It's taken two years for her to get back to "normal." In part, because last March she fell while trimming along the front walk. I can't remember what happened prior to 2010, but I know she was laid up with something.
Cyndi: Do you notice a pattern?
Merci: Yes, Jan's a klutz. We've mentioned that before. Nothing has changed. She's just a cleaning klutz now, trying to finish before sauna weather arrives.
Cyndi: So today will be Thankful for Jan Day. Do we have to buy her a present?
Merci: I don't think so. I think we just have to make her a plaque to hang on her wall. Or do something nice for her.
Cyndi: How about if we do a post for her from all of us Funny Farmers and our present will be that we won't post her picture? And we won't mention she's a klutz. Or that she hasn't done any spring cleaning in years. We'll just say we're glad she's still on her feet this year.
Merci: Yes, that will work. Let's go tell the others.
Cyndi: And when they stop laughing, we'll write Jan a nice post.
PS - The other day our Google Reader went POOF! Every trace of it disappeared, so we have no idea what is going on around the blogs right now. It's strange because Google said it wouldn't close until July 1. .
We need to find a new reader and set it up as soon as we can fit it into our schedule. Not sure where to go to find one that will be as convenient. Anyone know a good easy to set up reader?
We are joining Pepi Smart Dog's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
