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.
Tripod SissyCat, who was a mean cat and attacked people, dogs, and other cats when she came to us, now lets Coda walk past her without a second glance.
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. I will never stop __________________.
2. It was a relief to ___________________.
3. _________ made me feel proud of myself.
4. _________ grosses me out.
1. I will never stop hoping to retire until the day i do it!
2. It was a relief to finally get Grandma to agree to let me be her permanent housekeeper.
3. Graduating high school made me feel proud of myself.
4. In my line of work, not much grosses me out. The only time i thought i'd be sick cleaning something was when Ms. S's garbage can had maggots.
