Friendly Fill-Ins Week 331

Hi everyone! Today is Joanie’s 17th birthday. Thank you all for stopping by to see her. She will get a cake made of cat food and her gifts later today, but I love cake so I got one for her birthday. She did get a little frosting.

Thank you to our sweet friend, Dani for this awesome card:

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’m usually _________________ but sometimes I can be _____________________.
2. A new show ( or book or food) I like is ________________________.
3. I would like to skip _________ and jump right to _________.
4. I haven’t _________ since _________.
My answers:
1. I’m usually nice, but sometimes I can be mean if someone mistreats a family member.
2. A new show I like is the new version of Quantum Leap. My hubby and I enjoyed the original too.
3. I would like to skip all commercials and jump right into the show. I usually dvr everything so I can fast forward the commercials.
4. I haven’t been swimming since our honeymoon in 1992.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

My flashback is from last September. My Angel Sammy on the couch next to me. Happy Birthday in Heaven, my boy.

  1. Happy Birthday Joanie!! I hope you enjoy your day. The cake looks delicious. Great answers. We think alike with commercials. I’m happy to skip them too.

  3. Happy Birthday to YOU, Joanie!!
    And heavenly Birthday greetings to Angel Sammy!

    1. I’m usually on time for everything but sometimes I can be late, though not for work!.
    2. A new show ( or book or food) I like is Caribbean black beans and rice..
    3. I would like to skip all the paperwork involved with getting medicare and the extension plan(s) and jump right to using all the so called benefits.
    4. I haven’t seen my Canadian family since before the covid pandemic.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I had to do all my hubby’s paperwork for that and it was a pain. I am sorry you haven’t seen your family in a long time. XO

  4. NICE cake! And swimming is overrated if you don’t care to swim…just get out and walk, or just put on a bathing suit, get in the shower, and tell everyone you LOVED the lake!

  5. Happy Birthday Joanie (that cake looks delish!) and Happy Birthday in Heaven Angel Sammy. I agree about commercials – waste of time!! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for co-hosting Fill-Ins…..we ALWAYS have fun with it!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  6. Hapy Birthday dear Joanie! What a beautiful cake you have! I’ll bet ot was your most fave flavor too!

    1. I am usially early but I can be on time, too.
    2. A new show I like is actually an old one. Katie loves Daniel Tiger and watches it on PBS.
    3. I would like to skip all the intros in a seminar or meeting and get right to the topic.
    4. I haven’t been on a trip in several years. Home duties were there, and no sitter for the cat.

    1. Joanie thanks you. Great answers. I like Daniel the Tiger and his little sister Margaret too. 🙂 XO

  7. Love your fill-ins. I can’t see you being mean though.

  12. Charlee: “Happy big one-seven, Emmie!”

    Java Bean: “Oh, sí. Remind me to tell you about churros some time, Lulu.”

  13. Happy 17th Purrthday, Joanie. It’s wonderful that Angel Sammy could come to your party, too. Your Mom loves you both so much and that is the greatest gift of all.

    1. Thank you. 🙂 oanie thanks you too- even though she is deaf and can’t hear you sing. XO

  15. Happy caturdays sweeties, and Happy Happy Happy Birthday Joanie, we hope your day was epically epic, your cake is truly fabulous!!! Supurr fill-ins and OMC they remade Quantum Leap, the P.A. loved the original show, and snap on #4, no swimming since 2016! MOL

  16. Aren’t DVRs the best?! I DVR most shows and movies I watch on t.v. unless it’s streaming. Some streaming channels do have commercials which can’t be skipped, but they’re usually short. 🙂

  17. Happy 17th Birthday 💐🎂🎁🎈, Joanie. Mom thinks it’s pretty awesome that your mom and dad got a cake as well. We wish you many more birthdays. We loved the photo of snoozy Sammy. Our mom DVRs everything as well. And she loved the old version of Quantum Leap, as she is a huge Scott Bakula fan. She hasn’t watched the new version.
