Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  The Lake Is a Busy Place

thankful thursday blog hop brian 06092022

Howdy gang, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am always 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 get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m thankful that we live in a place that has a lake (sorry, Trout Towne Tabbies, close your eyes).  There’s always something going on over there and it’s fun to watch and fun to see.  Sometimes, early in the morning, the feathered crew seems to have a staff meeting.  I’m sure they’re planning the activities for the day and who is responsible for what.  Here’s the staff meeting from yesterday…

We haven’t seen any goslings yet.  Usually the Mama and Papa walk their wee ones around for all to see.  We usually see some turtles too, but we haven’t seen any of those lately either.  Oh, maybe the feral kitties and kittens are keeping them away.  I’ll have to ask.

Okay gang, that’s it for today.  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!

Brian, we are thankful that you host this blog hop every week.
Always good to see you, and let us know what the feral cats say about the goslings and turtles.

That looks like a laid back staff meeting, much better than the ones i used to have to attend.

Those feral kittens must be getting big by now, it’s probably close to time to trap them and get them fixed. While having cats around hunting might keep birds away, i’d think turtles and tortoises, with those hard shells into which to retreat, wouldn’t be too bothered.

Oh I bet those geese are fun to watch, Brian! And I’m really interested in what those ferals have to say … You look comfy and handsome today!

Looking good, Brian. And those geese do look like they’re having a very productive meeting. We have some here, too, and a lot of the junior workers (i.e. goslings) have been taking part. 🙂

That’s a busy lake indeed! It must have been a lot of fun watching the feathered crew.

We always enjoy seeing what different kitties in different parts of the world can see from their windows. We have had the occasional duck, and we do get pheasants and sometimes partridges, but we’ve never had geese.

Thanks for hosting the Hop Brian – what a great thing to have near enough to watch – a lake!! We have a lot of trees so see a lot of birds but the lake is two houses away from us so I can’t see the stuff that hangs out there. You’re lucky!

Hugs, Teddy

You can keep those geese because they are so mean and they poop up the entire area. Ducks are much more user friendly. Glad you enjoy watching them, though.

I am thankful that Lynn keeps me safe from storms. We had terrible close tornadoes last night and I just
trembled and could not sleep on legs during TV time.
Lynn says she sees dozens of Canada goslings on the lake we live at. She used to bring me big black feathers
to play with. I was thankful for them, but I quite playing with them. Precious

Lucky you to be next to a lake- wonderful place for nature watching! We live next to a protected gren space, so we are thankful for that! Cheers!

I too love coming here! I’m grateful for justice. Will be watching the hearings very carefully.

Hope those caca dropping burds aren’t leaving caca all over your yard. They look bigger than the ferals.

We don’t live near a lake but we do live near a pond and there is always something interesting and fun going on. Happy Thursday!

Purrhaps someone you know is feeding your feathered friends? It sure seems to be a popular spot. Great for picturing taking, too!


We are thankful for all your Dd does for everyone else in Blogville.

We love your lake meeting image…I love watching those herons that we have here, too. They stalk though the local pond and stream to hunt those froggies or maybe small fish.

See you later, Brian, you do look comfy there!

Brian, I love the lake and all its inhabitants. If you check with the Geese and they tell you anything…please pass it on to us?

Those geese are fun to watch, and we have plenty of them around here too. But Mom gets mad when they leave their poop all over the sidewalk and then we try to sniff it. They need to learn to be good poop scoopers like we have:)

Today I’m super thankful for my brother being here for a visit. I’m always happy to have him here, but early this morning I REALLY needed his help. I was super dizzy and couldn’t get hubby to understand. I’ve only felt that horrible one other time, a few years ago. Once I got rid of whatever was causing the problem, I started feeling much better. I’ve been taking it easy all afternoon so almost back to normal.

We thought it was cool to see the big egret among the geese. Our turtle we had in the yard last summer disappeared when winter came. We thought she was hibernating, but she did not appear when spring arrived. We are all disappointed. Always thankful for a friends.

I am thankful for a beautiful day that was enjoyed in my flower garden, pottering away to the birdsong all around me! We have a swan nesting down at the lake – hope to see cygnets soon. Enjoy your weekend!

How fun to live by a lake! We only have a pool around here, sometimes there are ducks who think it’s a lake.

How fabulous to live next to a lake and see all the wunderpurr wildlife every day, absolutely epic! Thanks for hosting guys, mew know we think Thursday at Brian’s Home is the best place to be!

It must be wonderful to live near a lake. The slow walks along the banks plus all the adventures are worth looking forward to. It’s only fairly recently that I’m beginning to appreciate cats. We adopted two strays two years ago and they’re nice cats.

What awesome Bird TV!

we have a lake where we live too but can’t see it from our window. OMG the number of gosslings strutting around here is UNREAL!!! When I drive into our complex I often have to sit and wait for the MANY “PARADES” to go by!!! lol

I enjoyed seeing some goslings the other day. It’s a shame our Canada geese no longer migrate, though. Goose poop and traffic concerns aren’t fun. Be safe!
