Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Friends the World Over

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07272023

Hello everyone, thanks to you all 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 through blogging we’ve made friends on six of the seven continents.    Who knows, maybe one of these days we’ll have a friend on Antarctica . Anyways, this Sunday is The International Day of Friendship.  That got me thinking about all of our friends, including those who are no longer with us.

7.30.2023 Intl Day of Friendship

We have lots of blogging friends, but they seem more like family to us.  Blogging friends, as y’all know, are just the best. We’ve been fortunate to have met quite a few of our blogging pals over the years and we’re thankful for that too.  So, this Sunday is a day to celebrate our friendships, but we should do that every day shouldn’t we?

Okay, that’s it for now.  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, this makes you practically an international traveler since you have so many friends in so many places around the world. And yet you get to stay home and the comfort of your own living room.

We love our blogging friends too, those we have met in person and only online. It is sad we don’t have BlogPaws to meet people anymore, but life is always changing and evolving. Lots of friends have left the blogging world too and we miss them.

Me and dad are super thankful for all our blogging friends, especially those dad’s known since the early blogging days with Orbit and, of course, Cleopatra. I only wish we were able to spend more time in here, especially with all that’s going on with us right now.

The CB is THE most wonderful of communities. I am grateful that I happened on it years ago when the only person, just 1, who had found and also commented on Admiral’s brand new blog, happened to use the letters “CB”. I had no idea, nor did Admiral what that meant, We googled it, and the rest is wonderful friend history.

We know what you mean about friends everywhere. We get visitors (not always commentors) from all over the world. Some are from places where we don’t even know the visitor cat. We don’t mind lurkers. If they read the blog, they must like us and that’s all we ask!
