Friendly Fill-Ins Week 71

Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins, but first we want to offer our condolences to our dear friends, The Florida Furkids. Their Dad passed away on Thursday, our thoughts and prayers are with Allie, Raz and their mom, Sharon.

 

1. I have broken __________________ bones.

2. When I go out to breakfast, I order___________________________.
3. As Summer officially comes to an end,                                  .

4. Before this year is over, I really need to                                 .

My answers:

  1. I have broken my foot bones ( right one).
  2. When I go out to breakfast, I order french toast or pancakes- I am too lazy to make those at home.
  3. As Summer officially comes to an end, I say good riddance-it was too humid.
  4. Before this year is over, I really need to declutter- I keep talking about it and writing about it, but never actually do it.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much.

I am thankful that when Mom brought me to the vet Tuesday, they didn’t steal my blood. I just got a B-12 injection and an anti-nausea one. Mom talked to the vet about those and being that they are safe, I can get them every 14 days. The vet checked me and I wasn’t dehydrated so I didn’t need fluids like the last time.

I am thankful for The Crotchety Cougar Club, a place where all my older  lady friends and I can complain. Please read about it on Kali’s blog. And please pray for Kali because she hasn’t been feeling well. I am thankful that we gained two more members this week ( they are not listed yet on Kali’s post, but will be added soon).

I am also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter F.

Family
Some say family has to be blood
I tell them to jump in the mud
My folks and I don’t share DNA
but for my health they always pray
Brody may drive me nuts
but I love that little putz
Family are those that love you
no matter what you do

Brody and Prancie are pretty chummy

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for week 63. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________.

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________

3. I could really do without                           .

And now, here’s Phoebe!

Hi everyone! You are not seeing double. Joanie is a brat so Mom went and bought another scratcher. Actually, she bought 4 more because Petco had them on clearance for $3.

I got to see my Grammie on Tuesday and Wednesday. I love her so very much, even if she doesn’t always give me treats.We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. This week we could choose from four B words, including bananas.

Bananas
Bananas are a dangerous fruit.
if you slip on the peel , it won’t be a
hoot.


My Dad likes them for a snack,
but sometimes they turn black
so Mom makes a bread with chocolate chips
Forget that I want my bananas filled with catnips.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Thank you to all who participate.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am so thankful that Grammie kitty sat us for 4 hours on Wednesday. I love her so very much.

I am still tuckered from The Great One’s visit. She calls me  Fee, she seems to like my name. Do you remember my car that was Mom’s niece’s? If not, click here. Well, now The Great One plays with it and I think she is sending me a message- look what she put in the trunk!
  One of our toy rats.

Here is my W poem for Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day.

WHEN
Us kitties always want to know when
When is breakfast ? I am getting thin.
When can we have lunch?
I need something to munch.
When can we have a snack?
Feed me or I will give you a whack.
When are you serving supper?
Please try to hurry upper.
When can I have my bedtime treat?
I could go for a sweet.

We are also joining #PMTphotohunt @tonkstail , this week’s word is Kindle.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 45

Hi everyone! Time for Friendly Fill-Ins Week 45. Please be sure to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comments.


1. The oldest item in my home is __________________________.

2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is _____________________.


3. My family heritage is                                .
4. My favourite family tradition is                                .

My answers:

  1. The oldest item in my home is this platter that belonged to my paternal grandmother. I am guessing it is from the 1930’s.
  2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is mustard, it expired in March 2015-oops! I actually replaced it Thursday along with the ketchup that also expired in 2015.
  3. My family heritage is Polish on my Mom’s side and French Canadian on my Dad’s side.
  4. My favourite family tradition is the Christmas Eve meal that we put on every year. My maternal grandfather’s family always celebrated with a Polish Wigilia with a several course meatless dinner. I continued that tradition, but it was a lot of work making the foods and no one was thrilled with them so now we do a buffet, but the important part is being together.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

The Nanny

Hi everyone! I am mad at my Mom!

 

She gave me a wet willie, you know when someone sticks a wet finger in your ear. She said it was thyroid medicine so I don’t have to take pills, but it sure felt funny.

Grammie is coming to see my today. I love her so very much and I haven’t seen her since Saturday so I am very thankful she will be here today.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter N.

The Nanny
In the 90’s Mom watched The Nanny
about a girl out on her fanny.
Mom liked it so much , she got this


her voice sounds worse than a hiss.

I think my Mom is crazy
and sometimes a bit lazy.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

peace-globe-square-blog4peace-nov-4-2012 Here is our peace globe, if Brody and Phoebe can make it work then anyone can. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if everyone was nice to one another? We may not be able to achieve world peace, but we can at least do our part and treat everyone well. I realize I am preaching to the choir though because I know anyone that loves cats is already a good person. Please check out the other participants at Blog4Peace.
