Welcome to our Thankful Thursday weekly blog hop. We are half way through our two week vacation and thankfully, today I had internet to write this post. Yayyy!
Thankfully we have a neighbor staying in our house with my three fur-sibs, but we still worry about them. That’s the down side of a vacation – we spend the whole time worrying about our fur-sibs (and my blog hop!)
Can’t wait to get back home and see your trickster videos. If you have more than one pal, this is the perfect video for you. Sure Marg’s fur-family will all love to help her recreate what they do in this video. ROCLMAO
On a more serious note:
I’m thankful that mom (Michele) is alive! We are currently in Europe and on Monday at 9.40am, she was attacked by 3 men in Denmark, at the crowded Copenhagen Central Railway Station. Three men tried to steal her professional camera and lens (70 x 200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Canon lens.) Two of the men hit her at the same time and she was screaming and wrestling with them, but thankfully she was wearing a camera-body-harness and the thugs couldn’t separate her from the camera and eventually, after some minutes, somehow she broke free.
A crowd of people gathered around to watch her being attacked, but sadly not one person stepped in or spoke up or helped. Not one. She then asked more than 10 people where the police station was and all of them said they don’t know and walked off. That was really quite shocking. The thugs then stalked her for 30 minutes as she was walking away from the scene and trying to locate a police station. The ringleader ran at her again, screaming more threatening abuse, when he realized she really was heading to the police station.
Thankfully she made it to the police, where she spent two hours with them. They said they were probably Romanian street thugs and this was the most vicious attack by them so far. She is bruised and sore all over, but is otherwise Ok. Thankfully she is a tough cookie and able to bounce back.
I’ll be home again in just over one week and as soon as I get back I’ll be visiting your website and catching up with all your fun. Hopefully I’ll have some fun stories to share with you too. I am always very thankful for each of you supporting our blog hop.
What are you thankful for this week? Please share your week with us and join our blog hop. Sure hope to see you next week too. *waves paw* :=o)
