Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful that we have air conditioning in our home and vehicles. It's HOT this week.

We are thankful for Netflex and Amazon Prime. We do enjoy a movie now and then without commercials.

I'm thankful that hubby and I were fortunate to make it through our careers alive. It's so dangerous for law enforcement anymore. So different now than when we worked.

I'm thankful for all my blogging buddies. Many have quit their blogs and are on Facebook, but they are still mostly all around.

I'm thankful that I've met so many of my blogging buddies. It's fun to actually meet someone in person after sometimes years of blogging together.

I'm thankful that there are so many wonderful fresh vegetables and fruit this time of year. Pure heaven.

I'm thankful for my and hubbies health. We're getting older, but we get around very well.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. I moved to the south in 1975, with nothing but 2 window air conditioners for a few years. It. Was. Brutal. I pretty much thank God every day for helping whoever it was who invented air conditioning ever since the day mine was installed. (h) Even more so this year with this epic run of heat and humidity. I don't ever remember a summer like this one.

    (k) big hugs xoxo

    1. I so remember the old swamp coolers. They were fair at best. I love central air very much. We've had a very mild summer for the most part. In a heat wave now, but it's been pretty mild. :)

  2. A/C ranks as one of the top ten inventions in the world ever.
    We"be been eating lots of fresh veggies from our garden. So yummy!
    It is so much fun to meet blog friends. Haven't met a single one who didn't end up being exactly as I imagined.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I'm very thankful for AC since it's been in the 90's near 100. We get a lot of humidity so thank God we have the AC.
    Thankful for just being alive each day. Thankful for my lovely wife Mary Lou. I'm worried about her. She's been having tests and we'll see how it will turn out next week.

    Have a wonderful Thursday Sandee & Zane. See ya.

  4. I too love all the fresh veggies and fruits. I am pretty much living off of them, since it just seems too hot to cook.

    Love your thankful posts :)

  8. Algore said something about air conditioning being the greatest threat known to humanity. Do you suppose he avoids places where they have AC?

    1. I doubt he doesn't walk is talk. They seldom do. They just want the rest of us to do as they say. Both sides of the aisle too. :)

  14. My list is nearly the same as yours. We don't have AC, but I'm thankful it's available if we need it. I'm glad you two survived your careers. Crazy times. Makes me sad to think of the gross disrespect for those who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. Yesssss, pure heaven for produce! Yumolicious

  16. We're thankful for AC too! It's going to be over 90 today for the first time since the beginning of June. Blech! I'm also thankful my hubby forgot his badge for work this morning because it meant I got to see him again when he came to get it! :)

    Hope you both and stay cool!

  21. I'm a Floridian, so I'm used to heat, but the worst heat I ever felt was in New Hampshire in 1991/92 (?) when they had a heat wave and there was no air conditioning. Our baby was down to diapers and she was still uncomfortably HOT! Talk about a vacation. Yeah, let's do that again.
