Most Thankful Birthday Ever

 Micah:  Hey,  I'm hungry.  The cat treats are gone.  Is there any birthday cake left? 

Sam:  Mmfff, niff.  Gulp.

Micah:  That would be a no.  Right Sam?

Sam:  Um, actually it would. 

Micah:  I knew I should have stashed a piece under my bed last night.

Sam:  Well, the cake is gone but there are plenty of other things to be thankful for today.

Micah:  Like what?

Sam:  Let's see ... We're together.  We don't have a car, it's cold in the house, but we're still a family.  That's something to be thankful for.

Micah:  You're right, Sam.  There is always something to be thankful for.  Sometimes we have to look hard to find it, though.

Sam:  I wonder what our readers are thankful for?

Percy:  Oh, speaking of readers, if any of them are wondering what was in the big surprise box we gave Buddy for his birthday yesterday, it turned out to be an even bigger surprise than we imagined. (You can read the story here.)

Sam: After Buddy knocked himself out when he fell from the stool, the rest of us gathered in the kitchen to eat Buddy's birthday cake.  (We did give him the first slice, even if he wasn't aware of it.)

Micah: We weren't in the room when the gift box was opened, so we'll let Dr. Buddy's good friend Billy Sweetfeets Norton Gingersnap from Meezer Tales tell you what happened when the gift got tired of waiting and popped out of the box..

Billy: *jumps out of box*   TA-DA!! um where is efurryone? isn't this mine Dr Buddy's purrfday party? ME hadded to go from NOO YORK to WHISKERKONSCIN to get in the box.

BUDDY?? BUDDY??? Paging Dr Buddy - HELLO? Happy Purrfday?  *sneaks plateful of cake out from under Buddy's paw*  um, you gonna eat dis?

Cyndi:  And that is the rest of the story of how we accidentally gave Buddy the best birthday present he's ever had.

Cameron:  A concussion?

Rusty:  No, Cameron, a visit from his old friend Billy.

Merci: It was a good day, wasn't it?

Buddy:  I'd like to thank all of you who came by yesterday to wish me a happy birthday.  It was the most excitement we've had around here in ages.
