We Are Blown Away

Cameron:  We are absolutely blown away by the sheer number of Christmas cards we have received this year.

Sam:  Speak for yourself.  I'm too big to be blown away.  I think you mean amazed by the sheer number.

Cyndi:  However you put it, we really are.  We signed up for the Cat Blogosphere and Blogville exchange lists.

Rusty:  Since we are only able to send our homemade ecard, we assumed that's what we would receive - email cards.  We send ours from the heart, so receiving in kind was fine with us.

Micah:  We haven't counted them but we can tell you we have a kazillion more cards than Jan has.  And most of them have arrived by snail mail.

Marcus:  There are a number of email and ecards too.  And a nice package of goodies for the cats.  I think it's highly unfair they don't intend to share.

Merci:  Would you share with them if the situation were reversed?

Marcus:  Of, course ... er, maybe.  *hangs head*  Okay, no I wouldn't.  I'm a bottomless pit.

Buddy:  A friend emailed to ask if he could have a copy of our Christmas card with our names on it, so Jan revised our original card.  I figure he's forgetful like Jan is and needs to be reminded who is who around here.  That's okay.  Jan often forgets who is who around here too. 

Sam:  This is our original card.  Jan made me wear the Santa hat this year.  I wanted to wear my chef's hat again.

Percy:  Jan made a different card for her friends.  We don't know why she didn't put her face on it so her friends would recognize who the card is from but Jan is a human and humans are strange.

Merci:  We have been emailing cards till our paws are raw but, friends,  if yours was lost in cyberspace, please accept whichever card you prefer from us - or all three of them, if you'd like.

Buddy:  We were going to tell a story about the snail mail cards today but we got a bit chatty, so we will tell that story another day.

Cyndi: This is Thankful Thursday so we did want to be sure to say thank you to the our old and new blogging friends for taking the time to share with us.

Percy:  We do want to encourage you, bloggers and non-bloggers alike, to Save those stamps for Millie and Walter of Bird Brains and Dog Tales.  Your stamps can help the Retired Greyhound Trust in the UK.  It's easy and it's free.  Details are in their post. 

Thankful Thursday blog hop is hosted by Pepi Smart Dog.

Thoughtless Thursday blog hop is co-hosted by Ruckus the Eskie, Love is being owned by a husky and Barking From the Bayou.
