2. I don’t understand why ____________________ is/are so popular.
3. The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was                                      .

4. My favourite Halloween tale is                                           .
My answers:
1. It is good to have a spare COFFEE POT ( I get the cheap Mr. Coffees that only last a year so I always have a spare one ).
2. I don’t understand why THE KARDASHIANS are so popular. It drives me crazy when society rewards people for being shallow, these people have so much money they spend on cars, clothes and vacations instead of using it for good.
3.The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was spooky1  NOTHING SPOOKY HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME, BUT I LOVED SPOOKY.
4.My favourite Halloween Tale is THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW.
And today’s word for the #JHC is Broom:100_9685 Quidditch anyone?



  1. We like the reference to Quiddich instead of witches. We hope you will forgive us, but we did not do the fill-ins this week. Fiona and Giulietta are reporting on their vet visit. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty may, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Thank you 🙂 We thought this looked like the right kind of broom for Quidditch. We are sorry Fiona’s visit didn’t go we.. We are praying for her and there is no need to apologize for missing the fill-ins. XO

  2. My mum agrees about the Kardashians. A game of Quidditch sounds fun, do you have a spare broomstick for me?

  3. Mummy agrees with you entirely about the coffee pot (for the same reason) and about the Kartrashians.
    And we would ALL of Us love a game of Quidditch. Trixie would like to be a Chaser. Caspurr is definitely cut out to be a Beater. Shimshi is obviously Seeker material and Mummy feels she has the makings of an excellent goalkeeper (mol).

  4. Happy Friday Filling In! Always look forward to this one……I should have said the Kardashian fascination “gets” to me too but forgot……..(how could I forget?!). Anyway, have a super duper Friday……

    Love, Sammy

  5. OMC..don’t even talk about the Fakedashians…they do everything to get into my tele- and vision… so annoying 😀 We loved the answers, especially on the spooky one…MOL… I’m in for the Quidditch…whoosh…. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 <3

    1. We don’t know why they are in all the magazine, tv, etc. Have a great weekend too! XO

  6. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was a fun read back in school. Now that you’ve mentioned it, we need a spare coffee pot, because we buy the cheap ones, too. More than once we’ve had to make an emergency run to the 24-hour store to buy a new one and stave off a coffee emergency!

    1. Mine always break at night and I am too lazy to go to Walmart so now we keep a spare.

  7. We like your fill-ins this week. The Kardashians was great. They are as popular if not more so than Paris Hilton and neither one ever caught a mouse! Humphf! MOL


  8. We don’t drink coffee but a lot of people do so an extra pot does come in handy. We loved Spooky too. Great fill-in answers.
    Angel Normie, Angel Mika, Sasha & Grady Lewis

  9. Such great fill-ins! I, like you, cannot stand seeing the news filled with stories of the Kardashians rather than far more important information. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow really is a great story, and perfect for Halloween. I like to read stories such as that and those by Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft this time of year. And, Phoebe, we would love to play Quidditch with you!

  10. Will admit that I’ve never watched a Kardashian show, don’t know and don’t care either. No dancing or singing or remote island stuff either. Watching an old “Ghosthunters” show once, and they were sitting in the dark and heard a weird noise! Turns out, the family cat wheezes as he sleeps…LOL! Hahahahaha!

    1. I hate reality tv, I don’t watch any either. That is funny the cat was making the noise 🙂

  11. I agree with you wholeheartedly about that “celebrity” family! They have nothing going for them, really. Wasted money. The lack of conscience and morals astound me. Good answer!

    I loved Spooky, too. He reminded me of our Wilbur. I miss both of them.

    My Mr. Coffee is about 15 years old. Seriously. I clean it with white vinegar regularly.

    You chose a good Halloween tale, too! HUGS, my friend.

    1. How often do you use your coffee pot? I make 4 pots a day ( not the full 12, and I switch to decaf after lunch). I clean ours with vinegar about once a month. XO

  12. Spooky was the best Halloween tale ever!! I don’t understand those Kardashians either. When they spend all that money on nothing, I think of all the cats who could be helped if they would just donate 10% of what they earn. Oh well, they will have to answer to all of their decisions just like the rest of us!!

    Yes Phoebe, I want to play quidditch! I didn’t even think of that when I made my ‘broom’ submission! Good job!!

    1. We loved your broom post. I do wish all the filthy rich would donate to cats, it would help so many.

  13. I almost said The Legend of Sleepy Hollow for #4 too! I love what McGuffy’s said about the Kardashians. I’ll also add vapid and pointless. Aw, that’s a cute picture of Spooky.

    Phoebe, are you good at quidditch? 🙂

  14. Great answers. As for the coffee pot, you get what you pay for. If you bought a good expensive one, it might save you money in the long run cos you wouldn’t have to replace it. That’s what TW SAYS, not what she does. Here are MY answers.
    1. It is good to have a spare toys and peacock feathers and also a full cabinet of food.
    2. I don’t understand why cat and puppy mills is/are so popular when there are billions of shelter cats and dogs waiting for homes. Many are pure bred too.
    3. The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was when I saw the orb in our condo. I freaked out and TW got a pic of me with that scary orb. 4. My favourite Halloween tale is dunno if we have one except maybe Rocky Horror Picture Show. My favorite Halloween song is Bela Lagosi’s Dead by Bauhaus. It’s spooky and it’s long. I used to end of set with it every Halloween. .

    1. I probably should get a better coffee pot. Thank you for your answers CK, I enjoyed them. That orb sounds scary and how cool that TW got a photo too. I don’t understand puppy/kitty mills either, it is so sad.

  15. We don’t know why they’re so popular, either! We’d love to join you in a game if Quiddich. We watched a Harry Potter marathon with Mommy so we’re ready!

  16. Great answers – particularly #2!
    I can’t understand how anyone, who wants to build back our country, could think Hillary Clinton is a wise choice, either. Makes me wonder if people accept what the media, whose owners contributed to her campaign, realize that they are not getting the full picture.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I can’t believe the choices we have for candidates- there has to be someone better qualified out there.

  17. Anymore being a tramp makes one very popular. Celebrities that is. If you’re in politics it doesn’t make you popular. Funny how that works.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  18. guys…me; boomer iz gonna answer two day if thatz all rite

    3} sum thin that happened when eye still lived on de streetz; canna say mor
    4} itz de grate pumpkin Charlie Brown

    heerz two a pineapple fish kinda week oh end ~~~~~~~ ♥♥♥

    1. Thank you for your answers Boomer, I am sorry you were out on the street, but glad you have a great home now. XO

  19. A back up coffee pot is good. We don’t drink much coffee here It is too hot. Suzanne does not drink it. When I drink it, I typically just buy a cup out someplace like the convenience store or the donut shop. I won’t buy that expensive coffee wannabe stuff from places that claim to have gourmet coffee. I like cowboy coffee and they don’t know how to make it.

    Once when I was in the recovery room, I overheard a nurse ask my doctor if he wanted coffee. He said he did and wanted three creams and three sugars. I told him, “Drink it like a man.” He got a kick out of it. There is only one way to drink cowboy coffee, strong and black.

    1. I love coffee, but I need milk in it, no sugar- I guess that is having it like a woman 🙂

  20. I guess lots of people can relate to the coffee pot thing. I just have one that makes one cup of coffee at a time and I use it a couple of times a week for “fancy” coffees. I don’t understand fixations with any celebrity. They are rich pretty people but under the rich and pretty they are not much different than us regular folks. Your Spooky was beautiful. I had a black cat,Dolly, who was with me for 19 years.

  21. Spooky and the kitty with the broom are adorable kitties. 🙂

    I don’t understand the big deal with lots of celebrities either. It seems that most of them only care about doing one thing and that is showing off stuff that only their husbands should be seeing, not everyone else’s husbands.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  22. Mee beeuteeful ray of sunshine what iss a Quid ditch…quid fingy?? Mee iss berry confused! Butt not about how beeuteefull you are Phoebe…or how much mee luvss you an how speshell you are to mee…..

    ***paw kissesss*** an ~~~head rubsss~~~ Siddhartha Henry~~~

    1. Quidditch is the game they play in Harry Potter, I watched the first 2 movies when Mom’s niece lived here. I love you my sweet boy. Spooky was handsome, but no one is as handsome as you. XO and paw kisses and nose kisses

      1. Oh it iss a game Phoebe!? Mee had NO idea!! Mew mew mew….

        ~~head rubsss~~ an **paw kissesss** Siddhartha Henry xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  23. Those are great fill ins. And Spooky, we love black cats. We sure don’t like the Kardashians either. Phoebe, you are looking mighty good too.

  24. Somebody knocked our broom from its normal spot today…now to us that is spooky! MOL! (Petcretary came home and found it on the floor…)

    1. It is good to have a spare set of keys in case you lock yourself out…
    2. I don’t understand why geocaching is so popular. Seems kind of odd to me…
    3. The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was nothing much… .
    4. My favourite Halloween tale is none, I do not care for this day too much…maybe Caspar the Friendly Ghost from the cartoons of days gone by… .

    1. Thank you for your answers. I agree spare keys are important. I don’t understand geocoaching either, but it makes more sense than pokemon go 🙂 I like Casper too.

  25. 1. It is good to have a spare bottle of Hershey’s Lite Chocolate syrup for my smoothies. 2 T.= 30 cal.

    2. I don’t understand why any so-called celebrities or persons like the Kardashians and the rest of their ilk, have some folks so fascinated that they reward them for nothing by buying their products, watching their drivel on TV and read about them.

    3. The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was my older brother jumping out of a closet at me. Oh goodness!

    4. Can’t recall Halloween tales now. But likely it was The Legend of Sleepy Hollow as well as I can remember that one quite well.

    xoxo smoochies to Phoebe.

    1. Thank you for your answers , I enjoyed them. I need to try that syrup, sounds good. Phoebe sends smoochies back. XO

  26. A spare coffee pot is a great thing to have on hand if you have morning coffee drinkers in the house, no coffee can make for a grumpy start of the day! 😉 I so agree with you about the Kardashians and other such infamous wealthy people who thrive on their status and popularity and wouldn’t have a clue about how most people live and what they go without. Not my idea of people to pay attention to at all! Scary – perfect for a kitty name, not so much if it’s our life that is scary! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a wonderful classic that I should read again sometime this month!

  27. Agreed – I don’t bother keeping up with them Kardashians either. What do they even do? And I can’t imagine why why anyone would want their life filmed for mass consumption? so weird.
    Spare coffee pot – now that is a good idea.

    1. I would be filmed for money to help cats, but all they do is make money to buy vacations and expensive clothes. Unfortunately, no one would be interested in my life.
