Friendly Fill-Ins Week 53

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins, don’t forget to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comments, but it would make Phoebe very happy if you joined the hop.

1. My favorite cereal is _________________.
2. My prom ____________________.
3. The                         thing about                     is                           .

4. I cannot help                            , but                                       .
My answers:
1. My favorite cereal is Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I also like Apple Jacks and Lucky Charms. I know, none are healthy.
2. My prom was my junior year in high school, 1986. I went with a friend, he wore a Miami Vice tux. I wanted to post a photo, but every time I try to scan one it messes up my computer for when I try to upload photos from my camera.
3. The BEST thing about LIFE is CATS.
4. I cannot help save every cat, but I can try.
Joanie feels she hasn’t had enough blog time so here she is on my lap.



  1. I haven’t tried any of that cereal! You’ve made me want to go get some. And yes, yes, yes… CATS ARE THE BEST ! 🙂 So happy to see the little one’s picture!

  2. Aww Joanie looks like a sweet kitty. 🙂

    I like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but not so much Apple Jacks. The only part of Lucky Charms I like is the cereal part, not the marshmallow part. But, I do love sweet cereal. Have you ever had Golden Grahams? I like those, too, but forgot to mention it in my post.

    Thanks for co-hosting the fill-ins. Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

    1. Joanie is a sweetie. I like Honey Grahams too, I make puppy chow ( a party mix) with them. Hope you have a blessed weekend too.

  3. You are doing a great job saving kitties…..if you don’t believe me – just ask Brody! Love all your answers – including the Miami Vice tux date to the prom…tee hee.

    Love, Pam

  4. The children are CTC fans, too. Cats are fabulous.

    If you cannot scan a picture (and i can’t, either), place it flat and take a picture of the picture with your camera, and upload that, it works.

  5. If it’s alright, I will meow out answers here today as I may not remember tomorrow. And as always I mess up trying to do the Blog Hop so I’ll just meow and not hop. Joanie…you have THE sweetest face!

    1. My favorite cereal is Froot Loops. And Apple Jacks. Well, Cheerios too.

    2. My Prom dress as a Freshman was a sky blue chiffon. My date used to throw things at me when I was a little girl, and rolled me down a coal pile at age 11 that we were climbing. Things changed when we got to HS.

    3. The awesome thing about life is love.

    4. I cannot help every animal in need either but I sure can try, just as 15 and Meowing said. They are innocent.

    1. Great answers, all good cereal choices. I bet the boy had a crush on you all through grade school. 🙂 Your answers to 3 and 4 are good too. XO

    1. Thank you, I wish I could have more, but with vet expenses it is not possible.

  6. Aw, Joanie, way to relax! I too know you can’t help every kitty, but I feel anything you can do makes a difference!

  7. You are such a kind sweet soul. Thank you for being part of my journey.

    I would love to see that prom photo!

    Critters are definitely one of the best parts of life! Absolutely.

    Thank you for all that you do, for everyone. HUGS.

    1. Thank you for the compliments, you are also kind and sweet. Thank you for all you do too! XO

  8. I’m sorry once again I missed the Fill-Ins. I really do enjoy them, especially reading everybody’s but work makes it so hard for me to blog during the week. I enjoyed reading your answers. Yes! to #3. I love Lucky Charms.

    Joanie looks so sweet and content!

    1. No worries, I know you are busy. I do enjoy your answers though so I hope someday you will get a chance to join us.

  9. Cinnamon Crunch cereal is pretty good. I remember having Sugar Crisp? the one with the bear a lot when I was a kid. I should try them again. …I’m with you about helping all the kitties we can. We have 2 house kitties, and what we call the ‘herd’ outside that we feed every day. 🙂

  10. Wonderful Fill-ins this week! We particularly liked the last two, though our favorite cereal is the last of Mom’s plain ol’ oatmeal in the morning.

  11. Joanie’s a Momma’s girl … so sweet! It’s funny – but I’ve never been a fan or sugary cereals – and I don’t know why because I’ve had many a meals consisting of brownies or ice cream or doughnuts. It seems like a sweet tooth would be a sweet tooth!

    1. Joanie is definitely a Momma’s girl. That is funny, but to each his own 🙂

  12. Joanie is so cute! We enjoyed your fill ins too! We agree with someone who said take a picture with your phone of the picture.

    PeeS: We got your package yesterday and have been playing with the toys ever since! Mommy likes the octopus so much she hasn’t let us bunny kick it yet. She’s a spoil sport.

    1. Joanie thanks you. I am glad your package arrived, remind your Mom it is yours including the octopus 🙂

  13. I always want to save every kitty, too. The unhealthy cereals are always the best 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  14. Hi Miss Ellen!
    1. any (’cause I like to lick the milk off the top, yum yum).
    2. not sure what that is – can we kitties have one, too?
    3. The funniest thing about my human is watching him scramble out of bed when I push on his clock alarm. .
    4. I cannot help make the D-O-G less goofy, but it is sure fun to watch her antics play out.

    1. Thank you for those great answers. My kitties like milk on cereal too, except cinnamon toast crunch, none of them want that milk.
      Sorry the second question was not kitty friendly 🙂

  15. My Prom Dress did double duty 20 years later when we put on a faculty play of M*A*S*H and the guy playing Klinger wore it ,

  16. Cute pic of Joannie!
    1. My favorite cereal is Rachel Ray but TW says it has something bad in it so I can’t have it all the time. She likes Frosted Shredded Wheat and Chocolate Special K.
    2. My prom was years ago on Twitter. I have a folder of pics from it.
    3. The worst thing about TW going to Blogpaws is I’m not going to get lunch and my dinner will be late.
    4. I cannot help myself, but I try hey hey hey but I TRY. Whoa-a whoa-a whoa I should have known better what I bite would do this would ony happen to you …
    My answers:

    1. Thank you for these great answers CK. Is it the vitamin K in the Rachel Ray? I stopped using it for a while, but my cats prefer that food. Sorry you won’t get lunch and your dinner will be late, your Pops should take the week off to spend time with you.

  17. One thing you may want to do to scan in pictures would be to go to one of those stores like FedEx Kinkos or the UPS store and use their computer to scan the images. Another thought would be to find a friend nearby who had a scanner and did not have that problem. We have a scanner that I hook up to my computer and scan pictures from time to time. It is a slow process to get the images scanned in.
    I like Apple Jacks, too. I have a friend who used to put tons of sugar on his Fruit Loops.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. I never thought of a Fedex or UPS store to scan the photos. I scanned some at Walmart to get prints made, but they have no way to send them to me through the computer. Sugar on Fruit Loops- as if they don’t have enough already 🙂
      Have a great weekend!

  18. Awww, Joanie… so nice to see you! Enjoyed the Fill-ins… you do so much to help kitties! I am so behind on commenting!
    1. My favorite cereal is or was Kashi Go Lean Crunch but I had to stop eating it because it was cracking my teeth! I mixed it in with my Bran Flakes every morning. I still eat Bran Flakes every morning. I do love Cheerios!
    2. My prom left me wishing I had gone with my gal pals instead of the guy I went with.
    3. The wonderful thing about spring is the flowers… and the birds!
    4. I can’t help myself but I can’t pass up a good cheeseburger!

    1. Thank you for these great answers. That stinks that cereal was cracking your teeth. I am enjoying the spring flowers and birds too. And I can’t resist a good cheeseburger either- do you have a Shake Shack near you? They have the best burgers ever.

    1. It was a much simpler world that I miss, but I do like being able to blog and meet cat lovers 🙂

  19. 1. My favorite cereal is steel cut oats, or organic apple cinnamon granola.
    2. My prom…I did not go…my parents did lot approve of dances…I did not attend any in my 5 years of high school…but I didn’t know how to dance either, and I sure didn’t like the music they would have there, so its likely if I had gone I would have been a wall flower, MOL!
    3. The fun and sweet thing about our furs is how we almost right treat them as our children…and yup they fur sure grow on us! .
    4. I cannot help my self in some self control issues such as food treats but have to indulge in some forbidden thing once in a while, esp ice cream! (And *that* is NOT on a paleo diet, tee-hee!) .

    1. Thank you for these wonderful answers. I thought it was bad that I couldn’t go to dances until high school, but I am glad I had to wait.
      I admire that you mainly stick to paleo, I have zero self control and eat bad stuff every day like chocolate , ice cream, waffles for breakfast. I don’t seem to like anything good for me.

    1. I am an overgrown child 🙂 Thank you, glad you like the kitties.
