Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Independence Day ~ Sweet Land of Liberty

thankful thursday blog hop maxwell 07042024

Hello everyone, it’s me Maxwell and I’m here for Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Thanks to you all for stopping by. We are 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 Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

This will be somewhat of a short post since it is a holiday here.  Today we’re thankful to live in the United States, the land of the free and the home of the brave.  As we celebrate our American holiday, called Independence Day, we’re  happy to be in our country.  We are also thankful for those that defend it day in and day out.  I got to admit though, we’d be even more thankful if this, and all the other holidays, could be celebrated without fireworks. 

I hope all of our American pals have a safe and quiet holiday.   So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Hey Pet Bloggers, don’t forget to leave your daily link over at The Cat Blogosphere for a chance to grab an entry for the end of the month drawing.  Okay, that’s it for now!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Without fireworks would be a miracle.

I pray you have a blessed and beautiful Independence Day!

Dearest Terry,
Wishing you and yours, including kitties a Happy Independence Day.
May the fireworks not be too scary for the fur babies, especially the youngest ones.
It is a day with fond memories of my Pieter:

Happy Independence Day!
We hope you will all ‘survive’ the loudness…too bad they don’t make kitty or doggy ear plugs…Here we have roaring jets overhead, us pups think that is worse than the fireworks…those things are LOUD and they roar coming in and leaving, too. Its the annual Air show nearby…we have the Thunderbirds and the A10’s among others.

Happy 4th, Maxwell and the rest of the family. We hope the fireworks aren’t too bad in your area. Several of the “official” ones in our area have been cancelled due to flooding overnight and rescheduled over the next several days – making for multiple more noisy nights. And it sure won’t stop the idiots with their fireworks shot off in the neighborhood.

Oh well, it is still great to be an American.

Mornin’, Maxwell – I agree! No fireworks would be phenomenal, but unfortunately, there are insensitive people who don’t care that illegal very loud fireworks not only traumatize most animals and many humans as well, but are very dangerous. With that said, Happy 4th of July to all!

I must say we are grateful that our kitties never seem to mind loud booms, unlike my family’s sweet dog Trixie in my youth. Be well, my dears.
