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.
As i hunted for a victim photographic subject, the only one i came across was Dansig.
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. My cure for the hiccups is __________________________________.
2. I am currently watching ( or reading) _____________________________.
3. I would recommend _________ to anyone who _________.
4. I can do without _________ as long as _________.
1. My cure for the hiccups is really weird. Get a glass of water, stick your thumbs in your ears, bend over and grab the glass with your fingertips, and drink from the far edge so you are drinking upside down. It works, just drink slowly so you don't spill the water all over yourself.
2. I am currently reading Fresh Faith by Jim Cymbala and The Envy of Eve: Finding Contentment in a Covetous World by Melissa Kruger (our current Ladies' Circle book).
3. I would recommend prayer to anyone who is breathing.
4. I can do without most cleaning products as long as i have either Lysol or Clorox, they will clean just about anything in a pinch as well or better than some of the "specialty" cleaners.
