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 pictures aren’t so great, but someone wanted to play.
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. _________________________ is more fun than a barrel monkeys.
2. One should take time to _________________________ every day.
3. I hesitate to _________ because _________.
4. Is it time for _________ yet?
1. Reading and writing is more fun than a barrel monkeys. (A barrel of monkeys would take too much cleaning up after!)
2. One should take time to pray and be thankful for all of your blessings every day.
3. I hesitate to make plans and count of them coming true because you just never know what The A-mighty has in mind.
