  1. I need an angel like you. Truly.
    I have to find our glue gun. I could use it on some projects. It is probably in the workshop.
    I hope your kids settle down. It is sad when they fuss. Hugs.
    I keep forgetting about Feline Friday. 🙃

    • I am sure you have some angels, we all do, but I will be sure to visit if I am an angel first.
      Glue guns are handy. I hope my kitties start behaving. I feel bad for Joanie, everyone picks on her. XO

  3. It’s not fun to have cats fighting each other. Some of mine do not get along, so i keep them separated.

    Glue guns are great tools, but i understand what you mean about how a burn is almost inevitable.

    The Disney cartoon of Sleepy Hollow scared me so much when i was a child i had a hard time enjoying the story when i was old enough to read it.

  4. Well to be honest, we aren’t sure who that nice looking black cat is with the great tocks. Sleepy Hollow was a scary movie. But fun too. You all have a great day.

  5. I am not sure whose tock that is… ?
    So sorry you have cats fighting. I know you don’t and we don’t want any kitties being mean to each other but some cats seem to be a little cranky with each other.
    If I was a ghost I would haunt my PE teacher from high school.
    I always want a CHEESEBURGER when we eat out!
    My favorite scary story is Love at First Bite with George Hamilton. It isn’t very scary at all… I love it and try to watch it every Halloween.
    I will be so glad when fall comes to stay and we see peak colors.

    • Thank you for your fill-in answers. I always get a cheeseburger too 🙂 That is a good idea, I had a gym teacher from elementary school that needs a haunting. I have never seen Love at First Bite. We are still waiting for our peak colors too. Have a nice weekend!

  6. Do those Tocks belong to Tallulah? Or Jinx? Oh no, we don’t know which kitty!

    I like your idea of being a guardian angel ghost. We could all use one of those! I really like that you chose The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I read that for the first time ever just a couple years ago. Before that, I had always been afraid to read it because a couple people I knew had told me it was boring. They were wrong, and I really enjoyed it. And I hope your kitties stop fighting for you soon! I know what it’s like to simply wish they all just got along. Sometimes my girls Thimble and Eddy scuffle, and my parents have one cat whom all their other kitties pick on for no reason that we can determine.

    Purrs to all of you!

    • You are so good- I am impressed. Yes, that is Tallulah 🙂 Have your folks tried calming collars? They do work for a while, but not the full month like they are supposed to.

  7. Sorry I didn’t set my Feline Friday post to post at the right time. This traveling on the water and blogging is tough sometimes. I linked this post to Feline Friday.

    Have a purrfect tocktastic FF. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺

  8. I burn myself just about every time I cook. And I don’t even bother trying to iron anymore either. I’m sorry the cats are fighting. I know how that goes. After I adopted Bear, he and Kitty were always fighting – and everyone was miserable. Bear and Ellie have never been that bad – but I’ve lost a lot of sleep sleeping in such a way that I can hop up at any moment to break up a fight. At first, I thought Bear was always the aggressor – but then I noticed that Ellie was pestering him – and he ignored her for a little while before having enough. Bear used to misbehave for attention – and now, I’ve noticed he occasionally starts a fight with Ellie for the same reason. Then again, with the addition of Emmy and loss of Phoebe, the kitties might just be reacting to the new reality. Things between our two have gotten better over time – I hope the same is true in your house too.

    • Thank you. I hope Bear and Ellie calm down too. Have you tried Feliway plug-ins or calming collars? They do work —for a while, not as lojng as they are supposed to though 🙂

  9. I sure hope the fighting comes to a halt. That is upsetting. Oh, I have a fun old version of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow featuring Jeff Goldblum. Is that the show you mention? I also liked the Johnny Depp movie – very creepy. Christopher Walken as the horseman was brilliant. Happy early Halloween!

    • I didn’t know there was a version with Jeff Goldblum. I liked Johnny Depp’s version a lot. I was referring to the tv show that was on for a few years and just ended in May.

  10. Ellen,
    Burning yourself reminds me of a good friend of mine, we call him U. J. in the stories, to protect the innocent. U. J. is an outstanding electronics tech. He can do just about anything with wires and computers.

    However, when he goes to use a soldering iron, the man can’t remember to grab the end that isn’t hot.

    Have a great week.

  12. Aww I’m sorry the kitties aren’t getting along very well right now. I hope they’ll get it worked out very soon.

    I bet you’d make a great guardian angel ghost. 🙂

    Great answers all around. Have a blessed weekend!

  13. Oh awnty Ellen, we’re so sorry to hear ’bout da meanness goin’ on. Ya’ know, weather changes and moon phases also have an effect on kitties. Much in da same way sa humans. After all, all livin’ beings are made up of water. Any imbalance can effect behavior. We’re sendin’ hugs and purrayers fur all.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  14. Your #1 fill-in is purrfect! Do you think Phoebe becoming an angel changed the dynamic and that is why the other kitties are fighting? Hope you can find the solution for this. Purring for a truce between the kitties. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  15. 1 If I was a ghost, I would haunt no-one…
    2. I always have to work when they have ‘trick or treat at my workplace…sheesh. even though its never even on the real day..
    3. My favourite scary story is I do not have one:) .

    4. I will be so glad when Halloween changes over to the November Thanksgiving season! (even though I have to work that day too…)

    • Thank you for these great fill-in answers. Sorry you always end up working on the holidays, I am sire you brighten everyone’s holidays though. XO

  16. My daughter thinks she’s seen Parker’s spirit around our house. A brown paper bag moving on its own or feeling him at her head when she’s settling into sleep. I think if I were a ghost, I would want be a good one who watches over and maybe helps my loved ones when they need it–just as you suggested. I hope you have a great week, Ellen!

  17. I love that so many of us would be nice ghosts looking out for others. I like to think that our previous pets are still with us at times. I have a fear of being a disaster with a glue gun so haven’t bought one yet.
    Have a great day.

  18. Ellen,

    Your response to #1 as a friendly, guardian angel ghost is a good. I was thinking about that as a possibility for an answer but then I thought would those I love to see me as friendly or spooky? I think I’d be scared if someone I loved came back to me as a ghost. 🙂 I used to get hot glue gun burns frequently when I did a lot of crafting years ago, so I can relate. I had forgotten about “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. That was a good old classic that I enjoyed hearing on Halloween night. 🙂 Thanks for dropping by. I’m playing catch up this morning. Have a good week!
