Friendly Fill-Ins Week 250

Hi everyone! Time for the fill-ins. I came up with the first two sentences and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. If you didn’t do a post for them, you can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you. The link is open until Wednesday night.

1. I have given up _________________.
2. On St. Patrick’s Day, I ______________________.
3. I get cranky when _________.
4. _________ is my good luck charm.
My answers:
1. I have given up my infatuation with Nic Cage. I can’t believe he just got married again- that is #5 for anyone counting. Plus I find all his recent movies bizarre and too violent.
2. On St. Patrick’s Day, I have Lucky Charms for breakfast. That is the only time I ever buy them.
3. I get cranky when I have internet troubles which I had the other night. For some reason, unknown to me my wireless capability got shut off on my laptop. It took me hours to figure that one out.
4. Nothing is my good luck charm. I am very superstitious so I don’t know why I don’t have one. I do think being kind to cats brings me good luck.
Hubby and I got our vaccines, I thought it was going to be Moderna, but it was Johnson and Johnson so we are all done because only one shot is needed. So far , no issues.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

And my flashback is Angel Phoebe celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in 2015.

  1. I’m glad you got your vaccines and it went so well! Good answers and I love the picture of Angel Phoebe all ready for St. Pat’s Day! XO

  2. Aw…sorry about Nic Cage. We had similar answers to #3. Great news about only needing one Covid shot. I hope you are feeling alright. Have a great weekend!

  3. Angel Phoebe knew how to celebrate a special day!

    Wow, no more Nick Cage?? But yes, he seems to have gone overboard in life matters, somehow.
    Whoot on getting your Jabs!

    Yup, everyone is Irish on 3/17…so *she* will find something green in her closet…though really, Green is not her best color! LOL!
    I actually have worn orange on 3/17!! OMC!!

    I don’t have any good luck charms, but I do have some special music which when I hear them, well, they have their meanings to me. I do have a lot of mini Canadian flags, like on my key rings and little fridge magnets. They help me not to be too homesick, esp in these days of not only covid, but all the political upheaval…

    I have given up on trying to teach Dalton any new ‘tricks’, cause it seems each time I touch him he leaves puddles…poor thing.

    I get cranky too, when the chores here, even the simple ones are not finished when I get home from my work…Read: dishes, or clearing the clutter…), then I have to do them. Sigh…for real!
    But love says, shut up and just take care of it…an attitiude I have learned is also useful at my work:)

    (sorry about the wrong order!! I need to get to my bed…to fill in my Zzzz’s quota.)

    1. Thank you for these great answers. That is sad about poor Dalton though. I hope you can travel to Canada in the near future. And I don’t think I own anything green. XO

  4. I never thought I would hear #1 from you, but I can understand why!
    That is a sweet flashback photo.

  5. YAY for you and David getting your shots! That one shot vaccine is grand. Now you’re protected and DONE. Love all your fill-ins and I join you in thinking Nic Cage has “lost it”……FIVE? Yeah….I know…..I predict problems with that and SOOOOON..

    Hugs and thanks for hosting Fill-Ins! Pam

    1. Thank you. We should take bets on how long his 5th marriage will last. 🙂 XO

  6. Such a cute photo! It’s great that you only need the one vaccine. I’m still waiting for mine. Things are a bit slow here, but hopefully I’ll have my first one by June.

  7. I never thought I would see the day that you were done with Cage. Never. I’m rather shocked. I agree with you that your cats bring you good luck.

    Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins. I look forward to them each week.

    Aw on Angel Phoebe. They do remain in our hearts forever.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, Ellen. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

  8. YAY for your one and Done that is excellent news on the vaccine. Ellen you are the first person I’ve known to get J&J. So happy no problems with it yet. Today’s paper indicated J&J would be ramped up for the fall since it has less specific storage needs and is good with one vaccine
    What a relief.
    Internet problems make me crazy too.
    Hugs Cecilia

    1. Thank you. I did end up a little sick last night though, but I am fine now. XO

  9. I get cranky when I have internet issues too, and I notice it happens at the most inopportune times. Glad you got your shots and good to know with Johnson and Johnson, you need only one shot.

  10. I’m so glad you and hour husband are doing well after your vaccine! And fantastic fill-ins, as always! I still think of you when I see Nic Cage in the news. And I don’t blame you one bit for being cranky when your internet goes whacky, especially when it takes a while to figure out why. My internet doesn’t always behave, and it sure makes me cranky, too. Purrs!

    1. Thank you. Yes, internet issues are a pain especially when one doesn’t have a clue like me. XO

  11. Great fill-ins! Here are mine:
    1. I have given up believing what comes out of the media and politicians mouths,
    2. On St. Patrick’s Day, I will wear my shamrock earrings.
    3. I get cranky when I don’t eat enough protein.
    4. My sweetheart is my good luck charm.
    Have a lovely day!

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I am with you on #1. And I love your answer to #4. XO

  12. I liked your replies poor Nic Cage heheh!

    I love Angel Phoebe’s hat I want one 🙂

    Have a niccagelesstastic safe weekend 👍😷😷😷

  13. I’m with you on Mr. Cage. Yay, you got the one-dose vaccine! I think cats are good luck for sure – have a great weekend!

  14. Computer issues can be so frustrating!!! Mom has to help Dad all the time with problems, and she really doesn’t know that much about the technical stuff. But Dad knows even less:)

    About that Nicholas Cage guy, Mom heard yesterday that he is thinking about running for governor of Texas:)

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  15. We LOVE your fill in answers! And Nicolas Cage is no linger one of my favorite actors either! This last wife is WAY too young. I am so happy that you and hubby got your shots! And I hope you can get together with your extended family soon! Have a marvellously Happy Day!

  16. So happy you and your husband are protected, One more shot for us. I hear you on internet problems. I didn’t think I would ever hear you say that about Nic Cage! I don’t think I have ever seen him in a movie. Here are my Fill-Ins-
    1. I have given up trying to read much during pollen season.
    2. On St. Patrick’s Day, we don’t do much anymore.
    3. I get cranky when I am stuck in busy traffic.
    4. I have a little teddy that is my good luck charm.
    Thanks, Ellen!

    1. That is funny that you haven’t seen him in anything. Thank you for these great answers. Sorry you can’t read during pollen season. XO

  17. Good answers to the fill-ins easecially that being kind to cats brings luck.
    I like to think so too 🙂
    Yay for your vaccine shot! Our province seens to be moving slow!! Not sure why :/
    Purrs, Julie

  18. Charlee: “That’s good news about your vaccines!”
    Chaplin: “Our Mama and Dada are anxiously awaiting the time when they become eligible for theirs here in California!”

  19. You don’t have to give up on Nic Cage…just watch from the corner of your eye from now on! 😉
    My internet problems are the same; the limit of data was reached, and it shut me down. Have no freaking idea on how that possibly happened, but must wait until the billing cycle ends before I can get a look at what the problem is/was. Arghhhh!!!!

  20. Those were great answers! I appreciate you hosting with Lorianne althoguh I don’t think I Know her very well. You both share ideas. Thank you
