1. ____________________ and ______________ go hand in hand.

 
2. _____________________ makes my heart happy.
 
3. Don’t be afraid to _________.
4. If _________ was a sport, I would win hands down.
My answers:
1. Coffee and books go hand in hand.
2. Snuggling with my kitties makes my heart happy. And so do hugs from The Great One.
3. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you feel is right.
4. If stain removal was a sport, I would win hands down. Just the other day, I managed to get marker off some wood items The Great One had colored ” on accident”. Toothpaste works wonders.

Joanie and I thank you for all the purrs and prayers. Her teeth were good, no extractions. It takes a while for the pathology report to come back on the bumps. I only had the larger one (1st photo) sent out because it cost $200 for that which brought the bills to $877, including the senior discount we get through my hubby. 
The one in the front was smaller. As you can see, Joanie is still a little drugged in the photo.
And Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are a little out of sorts today too.

Thankful Thursday

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

I am thankful for all these free magazines I got from the local library. Every January, they give away the previous year’s magazines. Once I look through them, I will pass them along to others.

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

This suit makes me hot and clammy,
kind of like August in Miami.
I can barely breathe when wearing the head,
putting it on in the morning is something I dread.
Right now jobs are hard to find,
I am in a bit of a financial bind.
I can’t believe I went to college for this
I guess it is better than performing a bris.

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. Better to be ____________ than ___________________-.
 
2. Don’t _______________ just because ________________.
3. You couldn’t pay me to _________.
4. _________ is my comfort food.

My answers:

  1. Looking back, this is something I don’t do. I used to do it often, but now I find it too depressing.
  2. A pedicure is a treat I give to myself. I don’t actually give them to myself, but it is a treat I allow myself every 6 weeks.
  3. A new skill I want to learn is writing. I would like to take a poetry class so all my poems wouldn’t just be rhymes.
  4. One bad habit I want to stop is eating junk food every day.

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.

I couldn’t get Trouble to look at me for this photo. Brody is in the background thinking better you than me.

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.

And the winner of our Thanksgiving giveaway is Daisy Mae of Crystal and Daisy Mae’s Photo Blogging Site.
