About pilch92

I'm a happily married 44 year old woman. My hubby ( David) and I have been married for 21 years (October 24, 1992). We started out with one cat and now have 15. 15 is my magic number ( David may like a slightly smaller one), but when any pass away, I don't replace the one that is lost, but I do rescue another. When we got married we were like most people and wanted a family. At some point we both decided that we love our fur family. Some people are made to be parents of 2-legged children and we are made to be parents of those with 4 legs ( although we did have one with 3 legs once-RIP Brina). It has taken me years to realize that this is my calling. I want to help all cats any way I can. If I can write about something that happened to one of my cats and help another in the process then I will be happy.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 133

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate.

1. I refuse to shop in ____________________.
 
2. A store I wouldn’t mind being trapped in overnight is _________________________.
 
3. I’m dreaming of _________.

4. I wouldn’t touch _________ with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.
My answers:
1. I refuse to shop in Hollister. Words can’t express how much I hate that store. It is over priced crap and the music is so loud. My Mom and I used to dread going in there with my niece. Of course, when The Great One is old enough, we will probably go in for her. Not a fan of Aberchrombie either.
2. A store I wouldn’t mind being trapped in overnight is Michael’s Craft Store. I love that place. I could spend hours thinking of what I could create. And I would enjoy crocheting too.
3. I’m dreaming of Nicolas Cage ( nothing naughty).
4. I wouldn’t touch marijuana with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole. I am disgusted that my state allows recreational use now and there are “pot shops” popping up all over.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
And, this week we are joining, Pet Photo Fails which was started by Roby Sweet of The Cuddlywumps Chronicles Melissa and Miss Mudpie are going to continue this in her memory.
I couldn’t get Trouble to look at me for this photo. Brody is in the background thinking better you than me.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

We are thankful that Moo is home. After a little rest, she will be heading out again. Also thankful that Trouble is not a tree climber. She was checking out the light cord ( it wasn’t plugged in), but Penny caught her and gave her quite a chase.

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

The street is a long way down,
we are definitely not in a town.
Why are we up here?
I want to be a sightseer.
Let’s go see Rockefeller’s  Christmas tree
then ice skate, I will try not to fall on my knee.
Then we can take a bus tour to Dyker Heights*
to see all the Christmas Lights.
In 2010, my hubby took me to NYC so we could go on the Christmas Light and Cannoli Tour. Dyker Heights is a neighborhood in Brooklyn that really knows how to decorate. I wish I knew where they bought their decorations because I have never seen any like these anywhere.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. I refuse to shop in ____________________.

Penny’s Tips Volume 29

Hi everyone. Before I give you my tip, I want to give my condolences to Marg on the loss of her sweet boy, Lucky.

Sorry I look so sleepy. I am loving the heating pad.

My tip for today is to remind you that today is Giving Tuesday. You could donate your spare pennies ( or dollars) to a good cause today. We just made a donation to Marg’s Gofund me page in memory of Lucky. We don’t have much to donate, but every little bit helps.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

Trouble wanted to look her best for her first Thanksgiving. I used lunapic to frame the photo.

We have good news! Moo has been found. She is coming home for a brief rest while I tweak her travel plans. Sadly, many bloggers that signed up for a visit are no longer blogging. Thank you Carol, for taking Moo to Alaska, she has traveled further than I ever have 🙂

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 132

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate.

1. Black Friday _________________________________.
 
2. A pet peeve of mine at this time of year is ___________________________.
3. ‘Tis the season for _________.
4. I never jumped on the _________ bandwagon.

My answers:

  1. Black Friday I will be out shopping with my mom. We go out about 7 AM, the crowds are gone by then.
  2. A pet peeve of mine this time of year is receiving Christmas cards that people don’t sign with love. We get cards from relatives that don’t sign love, just their names, no note. I figure if you are going to spend 50 cents on a stamp at least write a little note and spread the love. I drive my hubby crazy getting so mad about that, I even use HBO words sometimes.
  3. ‘Tis the season for Christmas music. I am breaking my cds out today.
  4. I never jumped on the cell phone bandwagon. I have a cheap cell phone that I use to call my hubby when I am off with my mom, but that is all.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
And the winner of our Thanksgiving giveaway is Daisy Mae of Crystal and Daisy Mae’s Photo Blogging Site.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the USA. Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful to be spending the day with my hubby, mom and kitties. I am also thankful that almost all the veggies we are having are ones my hubby grew. And I am thankful for all of you reading this. I appreciate your friendship.

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this cute photo. I let my Sammy write this one being that his poem last week was so well received.

Planting a garden can be fun
make sure it gets lots of sun.
The flowers are good for the bees,
but watch out, this garden is going to sneeze!
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
