Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: No More Pound, Pound, Hammer, Hammer

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01172019

I’m most happy to welcome you all to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we are thrilled to see you! Here’s the deal, each Thursday we post about things we are thankful for and today we’re ready to do just that. We always look forward to reading about all of the things you are thankful for too and we sure love it when we see new blogger pals hopping in to join us!

I know, I know, we’ve been focused on noise lately and it has been a wee bit noisy around our neck of the woods, and y’all know us kitties like our quiet times. Brother Simon has that noisy bird chirping at him most of the time and now there’s been a whole lot of hammering going on. Bang, bang, hammer, hammer, bang, bang, ugh! It was pretty much non-stop, at least during the daylight hours.

Oh, the good news is that noise wasn’t at our house, and we’re all thankful for that. We went through that several years back, way before Brother Simon and Sister Seal were here. You see, the neighbors across the street on the lake were having a new roof put on. They aren’t directly across the street from us, but almost, and that means we can hear the noise. I don’t know why they need a new roof, but my guess is that the reindeer must have damaged something on a rough landing.

Anyways, the hammering noise is done and we’re all thankful for that, seriously thankful. Oh, and Brother Simon, who does the duck and cover thing at any strange noises, seem to be okay after the first morning of the hammering noise. He was even doing his belly up thing in the living room in the afternoon. I’m real proud of him, he handled it all really well. Way to go Bro!

So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Needing a new roof is a big deal, i am glad your neighbors are done with it, too.

    Right now i am thankful the mail arrived, sometimes it’s well after dark before we get it.

    Glad to hear that the noise has stopped Brian, some of us humans would like to hide in a safe place when we hear neighbor noise too. I’m thankful for the mild winter we’ve had so far especially since I know it’s got to end at some point.

    O am sure glad the banging has stopped! We had a lot of noise this summer and I did NOT like it either. I am so glad that you are over and done with it!

  4. Mickeys Musings

    Whew! Good to hear all the noise is gone!
    We are thankful to be indoor kitties as mum says there is a wind chill factor today making it seen extra cold.

    I’m glad that the hammering has stopped, Brian. I know what you’re talking about, Grandpaw did it too last week…maybe the reindeer was here too🤔…I’m thankful for all my furriends here in cyber world that help me through rough times like now💗Pawkisses for a Peaceful and quiet Thursday🐾😽💞

    I think you might have something there, Brian, about the roof. We’ve seen other roofs repaired and the only explanation is reindeer hooves. Glad things have quieted down! – Tom x

    Brian, dear furiend, thankful for hosting this fine blog-hop. I’m sure you’re correct about those reindeer… I hear they have very sharp hooves.

    The banging of hammers is bothersome even for humans. Many years ago when our two oldest were very small, we redid our roof with the help of DH’s dad and brothers. It was a very big project and one that we were happy to get out of the way. Looking back on that, it brings back fondness for those who no longer are with us. Here’s to quieter, more enjoyable days ahead! Thanks for hosting TT!

    I’m so happy the pounding and hammering are all gone. Humans don’t care for it either, There’s a lot to be said for peace and quiet.

    Thank you for hosting Thankful Thursday.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

    So sorry about the noise handsome Brian! With all the hail storms in TX over the last few years, our gang has had to put up with various neighbors getting new roofs – it is a mighty racket!

  11. cecilia upchurch

    Oh my friends I’m thrilled peace and quiet has returned to your hood and all you hear is the chirping of the birdies. Are you ready for the Ice Age that they say is coming this weekend?
    Hugs Cecilia

    I’m thankful that you’re thankful. Simon said you’re fascinated by the burd thing too. We had that jack hammer noise thing right 10 feet from our windows for about two years until they finally finished the place next door. I was OK but TW lost some of her hearing. That’s how loud it was. Every night we hear the jack hammers from the helix project but we’re used to it.

  13. Jan K

    We’re so glad that Simon did well with that, and that it’s over for you! That’s one thing we love about living in the country with no close neighbors….we only have to put up with our own banging (and we haven’t done any of that for a while now either). The only thing is we do have neighbors who like to do target shooting and that always sounds like it’s right in our yard no matter how far away it really is! So that will lead us to saying that as much as we don’t love how cold it is, we’re thankful it’s too cold out there for target shooting!

  14. Eastside Cats

    Roofers around here use compressors, and airguns to staple the courses up…kachunk kachunk kachunk! And the compressor makes horrible noises….it’s all too disturbing! Glad it’s over for you!

    Gosh – Mom forgot to hook us up to the Hop this morning but she’s got us in NOW. I know you’re glad your roof is DONE. That’s a whole lotta noise!

    Hugs, Teddy

    We understand all about that bang bang hammer hammer noise too. We had a new roof a few years ago and then lots of inside renovation. Now we are hearing the roar of the snow sliding off that roof as the temps go above freezing. Mom jumps every time she hears it:)

    Glad life is back to being peaceful.

    Oh goodness….roofers are THE loudest! You can be very thankful they were across the street. I’m sure your neighbors are thankful for that new roof too! Very glad to hear you all weathered the construction noise well. Hopefully it will be sunny and quiet from here on out…except for those bird chirping noises!

  19. Deziz World

    You look so handsum and regal Brian. Glad things are gettin’ back to normal fur ya’ll. Things are goin’ to be gettin’ a bit crazy fur us real soon. Maybe we can come to your house and hide out. MOL Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Mom is wishing we’d kept our yaps shut about our thankfuls. Sawyer had a mega seizure at 5 a.m. and is back at the Emergency Vet. Construction is stalled agin for another week at least. Our life seems to be one step forward and two back. It pleases us that things are good at your house and no more noise.

    I am very happy that they hammering is over. We hate the hammering sound. It makes us run around and bark.

  22. Fraidy Cats!

    it is amazing how sound can travel. our directly next door neighbors were building something a while back and the pounding and the sawing was more annoying for our mom than us 😀 paws up to Simon for handling your hammering so well. today we are thankful that despite the muddy mess they have to deal with, our feral family is doing well after the bout of rain we had. purrs,

    Brother Simon shows how he is a full member of the family in his mind where it is equally impawtent. He knows his family will take care of him despite scary stuffs.
