Hello there everyone, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I hope you know that I am always so very thankful to each of you for joining us. Every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do excited when new blogger pals join us!

Well, if you read our post on Monday you’ll remember that we had quite the Windows 10 fiasco going on here. The Dad said he had other plans and now I know what they were. The Mac is back. Yep, it looks like we’ll be ditching Windows 10 and going back to the good old Mac operating system after all. Actually, the Mom tried to tell the Dad to stick with Mac but did he listen? Nope. Hey, it’s a guy thing MOL!

Anyways, today I’m thankful that we won’t have to fuss with the problems we were having every day. Sure, we’ll have to move some things and the Dad will have to get through the re-learning curve on the Mac, but I know he’ll get there. I’m thankful we can keep blogging and visiting our friends, really thankful.

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!

Looking good, Brian. We’re glad to hear you guys are getting the computer stuff squared away. We’re on Macs here, too. Dad will get back up to speed quickly, we are sure. 🙂

Years ago, we just had a PC. TW wouldn’t use it. If Pop wouldn’t have given in and bought a Mac, I would have never had a blog or had you guys for furrends. I’m thankful for that.

My human is such a Mac human she can’t even imagine getting near Windows, whatever the number is.

I never had problems with Windows, but it’s important to stick to whatever works for you. We are all glad you can blog without having issues now.

So glad you are back with the Mac. And maybe no more problems. You all have a terrific Thursday.

If the mac works for you then go for it. My mom has a fit with macs. It’s all in what you are used to. Hope things get back to normal as computer issues really ruin the mood of humans!

Yay!!!! Our #1 has used a Mac ever since the original one came out, and would never dream of using anything else!

We like your pensive look, Brian!

In our house, we say, ‘if the Mom’s not happy, ain’t NOBODY happy’ – I think it works for Dads too though – glad the technical frustration is over at your house.. You are one handsome cat today Brian!

I have Mac everything. iPod, iPhone, iMac, iPad. When the occasion called for it at work, I had to use a PC..it was awful as there was a learning curve that I did not want to learn. I disliked it and I’ll never voluntarily go through all the iterations you have to go through with a PC in its OS. With a Mac, updates are seamless.

However what I should have said was Brian, you look so handsome and ready for lady cat admiration. 💗

Right now i’ve got both Apple and Windows products, and while i enjoy the flexibility of both, if i had to choose, it would be Apple.

You have to go with what you know and Mac is what you know. I’ve never had a Mac and I do just fine with Windows 10. I’m happy you’ll keep blogging. We enjoy coming here all week long.

Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

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

Brian, may I suggest that your dad reach out to Apple, and take some of their free classes on all Mac stuff?!? I did, and will do even more, just to learn how to work everything. Did I mention FREE? And some of the classes only had one student…me…so I received personalized instruction. I cannot say enough about Apple, and I LURV my Macbook Pro!

Such a simple solution to such a complex problem. I’m sure he will easily relearn all about Mac that he once knew.

We are happy to hear that everything is back online and that your dad will need a couple of days to get used to the Mac. Thanks for the share. Hope you’re having a wonderful Thankful Thursday.

We are also thankful that your Dad got things figured out and you are back in business! We have one of each here, a Mac and a PC, but honestly I can’t get used to that Mac. Maybe someday I’ll have to! 🙂

I’m glad your troubled past will be behind you. I don’t know much about Macs but I can say I wouldn’t give two nickels for an iPhone (unless I could sell it). I have always been a Windows person but I will say that while Windows 7 was great, Windows 10 is a PITA. Every time it updates it throws a new problem at me.

We are a Mac family too Brian, and love not having to deal with Windows issues anymore!

Oh my whiskers, The Female Human has been meowing all day about some windows.
We like windows so I don’t know what her issue is but it’s really making her mad. Glad your dad got your computer stuff sorted and that he didn’t have a hissy fit like our human did!

Yeah on the return of the MAC. They are not trouble free, but still a much better alternative. We, are feeling blessed and thankful that Sawyer has not had a seizure since Aug. 11.

We’re glad your Mac is back. We’re all PC here….though still on Windows 7.

I’ve never used a Mac but I wish your dad the best! Sounds like the best decision for him.

We just transitioned to Windows 10 (no Mac to go back to for us!)
We were happy where we were but succumbed to their “disaster will strike if you don’t upgrade now” notices!
We’re doing okay with it so far – adjusting – but I’m happy I have a techie hubby to help me deal with all of this!

PS – If anyone needs to upgrade you can still get their upgrade for FREE – we used the “expired” code and it still worked!

Have a great weekend, Brian and felines! 🙂

Brian, we sure are glad to hear your woes are over. Our mom used a Mac in the real old days but we know she wouldn’t go back. She’s got too much software. Plus, why would we condone her spending potential cat toy money on a different machine? MOL!

Glad your Dad had a plan that is going to work. Maybe one of these days our Dad will decide to match Mom’s Mac too.

Oh, i am so glads you Pops got everything figured out! You knows, Ma is the weird one ~ she has BOTH Mac stuffs AND a windows stuffs! she’s never had the problems that some have had with the windows, so I guess that’s why she sticks with both.
Thanks for all the POTP! Totally worked, and I am makin’ my way back!

Still waiting for the new baby to join us and forgot to link in! I am happy to be here. Makes me smile to see all the thankful posts. You always share the best photos. Handsome and beautiful felines at your house Brian! Thank you for hosting and most of all, for your kind heart. Have a terrific weekend. HUGS

I was just thinking about what it would be like to switch to a Mac…I might give it a try!

I am glad you are all happy to have Mac back! I have Win10 which was okay until the major update a couple of weeks ago. Now it is nothing but trouble suddenly closing down without warning and running slow.

We were life long Windows people and got my first MAC 4 years ago after listening to so many MAC ravers. I agree – nothing beats a MAC – not one problem in 4 years.

Charlee: “Hooray! We wrote a little song to celebrate your return to the Mac.”
Chaplin: “It’s to the tune of a song by Justin Timberlake. I think Dennis would have called him a ‘famous minstrel’.”
Charlee: “Here it goes! Take it away Chaplin!”
Chaplin: “We’re bringing Maccy back.”
Charlee: “Yeah!”
Chaplin: “Cuz Windows 10 just don’t know how to act.”
Charlee: “Yeah!”
Lulu: “Hey guys, I have a lawyer on the phone for somebody named Justin Timberland or something like that.”
Charlee: “And that’s the end of our song!”
