Buddy: We thought long and hard about what we are thankful for this week.
Cameron: It's been such a busy few weeks we had to stop, take a deep breath, and put on our thinking caps.
Merci: Don't use the word "caps" or Sam will be wanting to model a new hat.
Micah: Yes, and something totally inappropriate for the season.
Rusty: Probably a large woolen hat now that warmer weather is tempting us.
Sam: I resent that. Saying I would wear the wrong hat suggests I wouldn't wear the one I want. I always wear the hat I want. I just don't always want to wear it at the time you think I should.
Cyndi: I like your hats, Sam. You always look so dapper and handsome with one.
Percy: *under his breath* You mean weird!
Sam: What did you say, Percy?
Percy: You need a beard. A guy in a hat looks better with a beard.
Sam: I didn't know that, Percy. I'll give a beard some thought.
Marcus: I don't own a hat, but I wonder how I'd look with a beard.
Merci: You'd look like a pup pretending to be an adult. You're too young to shave.
Buddy: What does Marcus growing a beard have to do with Thankful Thursday?
Rusty: I don't know. Perhaps we should be thankful Marcus can't grow one yet.
Micah: I thought we all agreed to be thankful for the weather?
Cameron: Oh, right. We're very thankful winter is leaving and we won't be seeing another snowstorm scene like the one below for a few months.
Cyndi: Yes, we are definitely glad winter has retreated and spring is blooming.
Buddy: Jan is thankful she didn't have to chase Marcus down the street when she came back from shopping Tuesday.
Cameron: Marcus has been good *cough, cough* lately, so she decided not to crate him while she was gone.
Micah: But she forgot he was loose. When she opened the door and walked in the house, Marcus ran out of the house, down the porch steps and turned left.
Merci: Jan panics well but she's too old to run. She just stood there in shock.
Rusty: She got a second shock when Marcus suddenly turned around and ran back up the steps and inside the house.
Marcus: I got a bit overexcited and my brakes don't work well when I'm excited.
Sam: That's true. Nothing works well when you're excited, except your nose. The biggest reason you u-turned so quickly was because you got a whiff of the sandwich Jan was carrying.
Percy: Should we be thankful Marcus didn't run away when he had the chance?
Cyndi: Yes. He'll be leaving soon enough and then we'll miss him.
