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.
Link is letting me know what he thinks of having Coda the dog visit:
|You brought in the dog, I am ignoring you!|
Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by 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 head over to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!
Here are this week's statements with my responses underlined:
1. So far 2021 is ____________________.
2. A book (movie or song) title that best describes my life is ___________________________.
3. _________ was a pleasant surprise.
4. I learned that _________ is a recipe for disaster.
1. So far 2021 is about like 2020, there's work scheduled six days a week and Church plus volunteer work on Sunday.
2. A book (movie or song) title that best describes my life is ...the only one i can think of is the song "Car Wash," it's about people working to clean cars, but cleaning is cleaning!
3. Getting Coda for this weekend was a pleasant surprise.
4. I learned that leaving any cat food within reach and Coda unsupervised around it is a recipe for disaster.
