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.
The senior living apartments where Ms. S lives has a resident cat. Sometimes you find her outdoors, and sometimes in.
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. ___________________ creep (s) me out.
2. I could use a refresher class in __________________.
3. Life would be much simpler if _________.
4. I would like to _________, but first I have to _________.
1. Ugh!bugs (roaches) creep (s) me out.
2. I could use a refresher class in pretty much everything i learned in school! CPR, too, i need a refresher in that.
3. Life would be much simpler if unplanned stuff never happened, but then again, that stuff is life!
4. I would like to visit a lot of places and see them for myself, both at home and abroad , but first I have to earn the money to do it, and retire.
