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.
On vacation, i haven't seen any cats, so here's a kitty from back home.
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. A product I would endorse is _________.
2. If I had a boat, I would name it _________.
3. _________ was one of the first times I truly felt like a responsible adult.
4. I struggle with change most especially when it relates to _________.
1. A product I would endorse is Ellura. It's like Cranactin to help prevent bladder infections, only on steroids. It's so effective the regional urologic specialist doctor recommends it.
2. If I had a boat, I would name it The Meanderer.
3. Stepping into the voting booth was one of the first times I truly felt like a responsible adult.
4. I struggle with change most especially when it relates to having to readjust my schedule when changing clients -- i have to remember which place to drive to.
Much thanks to all who have offered prayers and good thoughts for DiDreaming. They did admit her to the hospital with a raging bladder infection (if her doc approves, i'm going to get her some Ellura, it's that good) and allergy to the antibiotic she was on that made her swell and get dizzy. They have to treat the infection in the hospital and keep an eye on her for a couple of days.
