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.
Some of the not so tiny denizens of the shelter wanted a picture made, although few know how to pose well.
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. Every fall I ____________________.
2. It is never too early to ___________________.
3. I would describe my lifestyle as _________.
4. _________ requires a lot of patience.
1. Every fall I start buying Halloween candy in September, the small bags one bag at a time with every trip to the store.
2. It is never too early to start saving for later, and it’s never too late, either.
3. I would describe my lifestyle as Keep Paddling!
4. Listening to people, and i mean really listening not just hearing while thinking up what you want to say when that person is done requires a lot of patience.
