Buddy: It's so late I cant think of anything to be thankful for this week. Can you?
Micah: I can. I'm thankful for my red scratcher.
Buddy: But you don't have that scratcher any more. You shredded the top. Jan turned it over and you shredded the bottom.
Micah: It doesn't matter. I'm still thankful for my red scratcher ... the one I deaded with my shredding claws. It was mine, all mine. None of you had any interest in it. In fact, I miss it.
Buddy: Why are you fixated on an old scratcher Jan threw out some time ago?
Micah: Because I'm tired, you're tired, Jan is so tired she's sliding down the seat of the chair. We have to be thankful for something!
Buddy: Why didn't we do this earlier when we were still awake?
Micah: Because Microsoft waited until we were ready to write our post before it suddenly announced it was ready to shut down to upgrade us to Windows 10 Creator. Now that it has finished and Jan has given it a once over to see what's new, none of us can stay awake long enough to remember what we planned to post.
Buddy: But surely there must be something more recent to be thankful for.
Micah: Okay, I'm thankful the upgraded operating system will boot without a hitch after a good night's rest. At least I hope I am. If not, it's going to be embarrassing when we don't show up in Blogville today.
Buddy: First, you're thankful for the past, now you're thankful for the future. Don't you have any current good news?
Micah: Yes, I'm going to hit publish now and then snore the night away.
Buddy: Good idea. I'll race you to sleep.
We're joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home.
