Feline Friday was originally started by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude (who no longer blogs), and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
He handed hosting duties off to Sandee at Comedy Plus, and now she's entrusting it to me. Wish me luck!
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is: Post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (they may be silly or cute). Then add your link!
One thing for sure is this is a fun and easy meme to do. So come and join us in Feline Friday.
What better way to start the weekend than with a feline!
Sidney is still coming up with new ways to keep us on our toes.
He was in a big room all to himself, and in order to free up space, he was moved to an office. Since he couldn't get out because the door to the hall was blocked with a chair, he taught himself a new trick.
He'd jiggle the door until the lock worked loose and get into the next office, which belongs to the executive director. He then left her a hairball on her desk.
Guess who got put back in a big room?
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 always _________.
2. Did you _________?
3. I know _________ all too well.
4. I can't explain _________.
1. The workday is always too long and the evening is always too short.
2. Did you vote the last time you were afforded the opportunity? It is a right and a privilege and i do hope you avail yourself of that opportunity at every election.
3. I know too many ways to clean a toilet all too well.
4. I can't explain faith, but if it could be totally explained, it would be sight not faith.
