Penny’s Tips Volume 10

Hi everyone! Here I am two weeks in a row, thank you all for telling mom to give me more posting time.

  Notice my tie, do I look like a stock broker? I just found out there are stocks named after me. Penny stocks were stocks valued under $1, but that definition has changed to stocks valued at under $5 per share. They are high risk, but you can make a lot of money.

I am a little insulted because I am worth lots more than $5. I may take a chance with these pennies though and try to turn them into dollars. Anyone else want to take a risk?

Before I go, Mom told me to tell you all about our interview on Supawcute, the new blog by our friend Johnny of PetsOverload. To read it, click here.

Another Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? , McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks, Comedy Plus ” Awww…..Monday and Mewsic Moves Me ( hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.


First, a word from Joanie.

No one wants to hire me to train gremlins so I iz studying to be a paw reader. Pawmistry: How to Read Your Cat’s Paws by Ken Ring and Paul Pomhany is good book. So far, I learned the bigger the space between your lower pad and upper pads means the more independent you are.

Thank you Joanie. I am enjoying book 3 in The Miss Cuddlywump’s Series, titled Siren Song. I love this series!

This week was a freebie week to pick your own theme on the Mewsic Moves Me so I am combining it with Sparks. I have chosen 3 songs that will hopefully brighten your day. Two are from the movie, Annie which I was obsessed with when it came out.


And the last one is Accentuate the Positive- I chose the version that was used on the tv series, Homefront.


Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I have been letting Joanie and Emmy get too much blog time lately so I thought I would write today.

Look what Grammie bought for us. I love Grammie and not just because she brings goodies.

Grammie and mom went shopping the other day. I won’t say the name of the mart store because some of you don’t like that store. Mom got the great one some Minnie Mouse pajamas for $1 and she got a onesie for the great one’s baby sister ( arriving in June). It was only 25 cents !
Mom was so happy with it until Grammie saw it and said, ” my aunt is SINGLE and fun? ” Mom somehow missed the single part- oops! Oh well, they do have a single aunt too 🙂

Penny’s Tips- Volume 9

Hi everyone! It is about time I got a turn to do my tips.

See this chair. It was wobbly so mom tapes a penny ( not me) to the bottom of one of the legs and now it doesn’t wobble.

Pardon me while I eat my treats. I refused to pose unless I got paid in advance.

Emmy asked me to remind you that you have until 9PM EST on Tuesday to comment on Sunday’s post for a chance to win the Dr. Seuss Giveaway. It is open to all.



A Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww. .. Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Curious as a Cathy Mewsic Moves Me Blog Hops. Once again, I am skipping the book hop because I haven’t read anything this week worth writing about.

The Mewsic theme this week is TV or Movie theme songs. There are so many that I love, it was tough to narrow it down.

  1. Laverne and Shirley Theme Song ( I used to love this show. My friend and I would pretend to be them, I always wanted to be Shirley). Even as a child, I loved their optimism.

2. Family Ties Theme Song. I loved this show when I was in high school.

3. Fame

4. My all-time favorite-The Nanny. I used to have my own version for KaChoo.

And here is my Spark- Keep Calm and Sing Soft Kitty. It isn’t a theme song, but it is on Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon often.

Emmy wants me to remind everyone they have until Tuesday 9PM EST to enter her Dr. Seuss Giveaway. Just comment on yesterday’s post to enter.
