Friendly Fill-Ins Week 297


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 feel _______________ when I ____________________.
2. I wish I could erase ______________from my memory to free up some space.
3. Others probably find it annoying that I _________.
4. _________ really needs to be invented.
My answers:
1. I feel good when I give things away.
2. I wish I could erase all the lyrics to songs I know from my memory to free up some space. The older I get, the harder it is to remember things and lyrics seem like a useless waste of space.
3. Others probably find it annoying that I always talk about cats.
4. An alarm for a cane needs to be invented. My mom has a cane, but sometimes walks away from it- I think it would be nice to have it beep if you get too far away from it.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

And my flashback is from January 2017. Angel Phoebe was having a chat with Cookie Monster.

  1. I LOVED those answers. Every one of them. I was thinking, not about lyrics so much but eagworms that drive me crazy!

  2. Phoebe and cookie Monster were likely chatting about cookies…for him and for kitties! Us pups like cookies, too!

    Your fill in #4 is a good idea! We need such things at work for the walkers peeps use…and sometime forget to use.

    1. I feel good when I see the residents I care for, smiling and having fun..
    2. I wish I could erase the scdenes iin my head that often replay themselves of the 2 bad car accidents I have had..from my memory to free up some space.for more pleasant things. (I think its a slight case of PSTD)
    3. Others probably find it annoying that I listen to classical music and have little or no idea of popular music, let alone the artists..
    4. A cure for Alzheimer’s disease really needs to be invented. (Though then I might not have a job!)

    1. Thank you for these great answers. A cure for Alzheimer’s would be good. And it does sound like you have some PTSD and understandably so. XO

  3. Angel Phoebe looked very interested in what Cookie Monster had to say.
    Great answers to the fill ins. I only have to hear the first 2 or 3 notes from 60s and 70s records and know instantly what they are. It is useless knowledge now!

  4. That’s a great photo of Angel Phoebe and the Cookie Monster having a conversation. The fill-ins are super too but trust me – nobody thinks you talk about cats too much! We are in a CAT WORLD!!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. Ellen,

    I agree giving to others is a wonderful feeling. There was a time when we’d take all of our old stuff to Goodwill. They had an off-hours drop off which worked well for us but for some reason that changed making it more of a headache. Unless there is an organization that picks things up curb side then we no longer do it. It’s a shame when you want to do something nice, politics or protocols or both get in the way. Thanks for hosting!

  6. I don’t find it annoying at all that you talk about cats. Very cute flashback of Angel Phoebe♥
    My Fill-Ins…
    1. I feel happy when I listen to music from the 70s and 80s.
    2. I wish I could erase things that cause anxiety from my memory to free up some space.
    3. Others probably find it annoying that I procrastinate.
    4. A really good oven cleaner really needs to be invented. I don’t like any of the self-cleaning ovens I have had and nothing I have tried makes cleaning easy. SSNS is a great oven cleaner but he can only do so much.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I agree about an oven cleaner. I like songs from that period too, music was much better back then. XO

  7. Love your fill-ins and I don’t think it’s strange that you talk to your kitties. I’ve always talked with my babies too. Good for you.

    Angel phoebe was a most beautiful kitty.

    Thank you for co-hosting the friendly fill-ins.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

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

    1. Yes, my mom needs that too. Although, the are usually hanging on the front of her shirt. 🙂

  8. That cane alarm is a great idea ! Also, your car needs to have a button outside of it that you press and it makes your keys beep so you can find them !
    The memory of Phoebe & the Cookie Monster is wonderful !

  9. Love the tongue out flashback. TW feels good when she gives stuff away. That’s why we have so much clutter. She wants to give it all away but is too lazy. She just gave all her old business suits to charity. Oh, and it’s never annoying to talk about cats.

  10. “angel” Phoeobe was so purrty!! An shee sure made alot of frendss!
