Feline Friday was started by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
He has handed hosting duties off to Sandee, of Comedy Plus, and it's simple to join, just follow the link to Sandee's page for the rules and the code.
It’s been a couple of weeks since i featured Link’s handsome self.
Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by Ms. Ellen of 15AndMeowing, and the final two are offered by Lorianne The Menagerie Mom of Four-Legged Furballs. They try to make sure the statements will be fun to both answer and share. The linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM on Friday.
Please note that you can link up today only at Four-Legged Furballs. Ms. Ellen is not posting today, as she just lost her precious cat Prancie. If you wish, you may go to her site and leave condolences.
Here are this week's statements with my responses underlined:
1. When I am _________ I __________.
