Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Boxes, Really Big Ones

thankful thursday blog hop brian 04122018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello everyone, it’s that time, time again for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. As you know, each and every Thursday we tell everyone about the things for which we are most thankful. We’re are always super happy when you join us for our blog hop and we love to see our new blogger pals hopping in for the first time too. Your thankfuls always make our Thursday!

I’m sure you remember last week when I told you about the amazing cat tree we won.  Well, today, we’re all thankful for boxes, the really big ones, specifically, a really big one that showed up at our door.  Yes, it was our prize tree.  Oh, before I forget, we’re thankful for all of the nice delivery drivers that deliver us stuff in boxes several days a week.  We get our litter from Chewy on Auto Delivery and we use lots of litter.  That’s a lot of heavy box toting and I’m thankful they show up on time.

Where was I?  Oh yea, a really big box…

thankful thursday blog hop brian 2 04122018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Now the challenge begins, the Dad has to open the box, unpack the tree, read the directions and see if he can figure out how to put it together.  Sometimes the Dad doesn’t do too good with the “some assembly required” thing.  Believe me, we will all be super thankful if he figures it out.  I wonder how long it will take and where will it go?  To be continued sometime soon we hope.

What are you thankful for today?   Tell us about your thankful or thankfuls in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  The linky list is open all week so you can hop in anytime a thankful shows up.  Have a truly wonderful Thursday.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Yups Dad’s are great regardless of their abilities with “some assembly required” MOL We’re thankful that spring is slowly showing up here in our part of the world. We’re also thankful for both our folks who are our nurse,s grocery shoppers, cooks and house keepers. Yups life’s grand.

Yep that tree comes with HUGE boxes!! I think your Dad can handle it. My Mom tried for over 4 hours (but my Mom doesn’t have the smarts that your Dad has!) Mom ended up having to pay our apartment maintenance gentleman to put it together for her because our Dad is hopeless and so is Mom! Love, Cody

I’m sure your human will figure it out – and I can’t wait to see your new tree all put together!

Well at least you can have fun with the box until he figures out how to put it together. Let’s hope he gets it figured out before the tree for Santa has to go up.

Brian, that is a terrific double dangle. We can’t wait to see your new tree. Our mom has been collecting really big boxes to build us a fort. She thinks she has enough now, and we can’t wait until she does it. We are thankful for our family and friends.

A new tree and a new box, how lucky can you get! Maybe Tony Soprano can help your dad. We know he comes by sometimes when our mom has tasks with “some assembly required.”

We are so excited for you all! There is no doubt that both the tree and its box will be well-loved. We have faith that your dad will have lots of success in assembling your new tree. After all, you’ll all be there to help him!

Oh, and it is so wonderful that you remembered delivery drivers in your post today. We, too, are very grateful for all of the food, litter, toys, treats, and all the goodies they bring our way.

I just bet your Dad has that tree together faster than he thought – the one my Mom and Dad got me was SUPER easy to put together and BIG too. Hope you have fun exploring all the “nooks and crannies” on the news tree!

I hope your dad doesn’t have too much trouble assembling the cat tree. It must be a man thing because they don’t like reading instructions!

Well, at least you all can enjoy the box while you wait for Dad to put the tree together. Assembling things around here usually takes quite a while too!

We think your Dad will figure it out and maybe your Mama will lend a hand? Our Mama is better at, ” some assembly required”, than our daddy!

We can’t wait to see it put together 🙂
