We give thanks for Boxcar Bean and Baby Wry

Tonight, I had intended to tell part 2 of the story of how Thunder Paws came to live with us, but today we journeyed to Anchorage to the home of Fire, our youngest son, and his wife, Lilac, for Thanksgiving dinner. When we stepped inside, we saw Boxcar Bean sauntering across the floor.

This made us feel very thankful, so I decided to interrupt Thunder's story just long enough to present Boxcar Bean as he appeared on Thanksgiving Day, 2008.

Here he is, on a chair in the kitchen of Fire and Lilac Kracker.

How could we not be thankful?

Boxcar was very curious about baby Wry. He seemed to be surprised that humans could be so small.

Boxcar is puzzled.

Boxcar Bean, Baby Wry Kracker and Tryskuit Kracker. For those of you unfamiliar with how Boxcar Bean gave up his life as an Angel to become a Kracker Cat, you can find the four-part series here.

Also, anyone who reads "comments" here is familiar with the name, Standtall. Standtall keeps her own fine blog, based in Lagos, Nigeria, and not too long ago she decided to set Thursdays aside to publish interviews that she does with other bloggers. Today, she honored me and made me her Thursday interview. You can read it here.

Thank you, Standtall, and please keep up your good work.

And, as long as I am inserting links, I plan to put the Krackers' Thanksgiving Day up on my Wasilla blog. It won't be up until maybe 12 hours or more after I post this - although, in the meantime, you might find some of these images of Boxcar there as well, plus Muzzy and a couple of snowshovelers.
