Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: A Little Quieter Chain Gang

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01232020

Hello gang, thanks for coming by to see us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. You know that I am always excited and thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and 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!

Today I’m really thankful for a bit more of a quieter chain gang. What? Okay, let me explain. You know the noisy Saturday we had with the plumber here and you know we were ready for lots of peace and quiet after that. Well, something else broke and it did involve a chain. I’m just really thankful there aren’t any chains in the house.

BUT, there is one big chain in the garage and it’s a chain that helps lift up the garage door when the Mom and Dad need to get one of there wheely things out. Yepper, the chain went pop to our Pop and fortunately it didn’t pop any of those wheely things. Oh, the Dad could still open the garage door but he said it is a real pin in the back. So, the Dad called out the chain gang.

Hooray, nobody was inside the house and if the chain gang made any noise we didn’t here it and believe me, we’re all thankful for that. What are you thankful for today? Tell me 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!

I’m glad the garage door got fixed! The humans need to get in and out to get your cat food and litter!

Dad got his garage door oiled up as it was tough to open by the guy but we did not hear that either. We are glad that old chain is fixed so your Dad keeps a happy back. Purrs to all

What a relief that Simon didn’t have to do his dustbunny duties again – MOL! When it rains, it pours, your poor humans, two maintenance issues in one week! Let’s hope that does it for 2020.

My other favorite brovver in NC had the same problem. Those chains must be in a chain union or something.

Meowser Brian dear furiend, what an exciting week you’ve had!!! I’ve NEVER seen an actual plumber because pops fixes everything, not just pipes and leaks, but when I was still toddling, I have a hazy memory of him replacing the garage door opener – not because it had the excitement of a chain breaking, but because he wanted to have an exterior keypad as well as those clicky thingys….
Thank you for hosting this blog hop. Hope you all have a purrfect week.

Oh my word Brian…thank goodness your Photographer and Writer were not trapped in the garage.
I hope the chain gang makes quick work of the repair.
FYI: we like our new loo so much we are having the other 2, vintage (circa 1983) replaced tomorrow.
Hope to see a big change in our water bill too.

We feel your pain about having workers in the house. It is so distressing. I am glad that the “chain gang” was quiet and fixed your garage door!!!!

Whoa! Glad it didn’t hit anything. I thought your title referred to a bike chain. TW says that when she was a kid, there was a chain to flush the human litter box and that used to break.

It’s a good thing the garage door was fixed without disturbing all of you. Like Summer said, it’s important for the humans, so they can get cat stuff.

It’s never fun when things break but considering it has been 12 years since I had a garage I can’t really relate. 🙂

Thank the heavenly stars that nopawdy was too close to the chain when it decided to “pop”. Those garage doors sure can make loud grouchy noises. Tee hee hee.
