Friendly Fill-Ins Week 61

Hi everyone. Before we get to the Friendly Fill-Ins, Phoebe asked me to make an announcement. The Crotchety Cougars have lost their first member, beautiful Ellie of The Florida Furkids sadly left for The Rainbow Bridge Thursday morning. The Cougars have a tribute to her (click here) and you can visit her family ( click here).

Thank you to Kali’s Mom for this beautiful badge.

Ellie’s Dad needs some prayers too.

Here are the fill-ins, please add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comment section.

1. My favorite line from a film is __________________________.

2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is __________________.

3. When I feel down, I                              .

4. If I could                         , I would                           .
My answers:
1. My favorite line from a film is Nicolas Cage in The Family Man, when asked by a child if he likes kids. ” On a case-by-case basis” . I always quote that because that sums up how I feel too.

2.Other than blogs, a website I visit often is Goodreads, almost daily. I like to enter the giveaways and keep track of what I am reading. I also visit Pinterest often too.

3. When I feel down, I eat junk food. Apparently, I do it when I feel fine too. 🙂

4. If I could rescue every cat in need, I would definitely do that.


Plan Bea

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is ROAR day, but instead of a shelter I want to ROAR for a new book that comes out today. Many of you are familiar with the Blog Feeling Beachie . I was thrilled when Hilary offered to let me review her second book, Plan Bea.

I am partial to non-fiction, but I love Hilary’s blog and her book, Dangled Carat so I was eager to read Plan Bea. I was pleasantly surprised that the main character, Annabel, has a pet cat (always a plus) as far as I am concerned. Annabel seems to have it all, a great job, a loving husband, two beautiful children and a cat. Unfortunately, she has a strained relationship with her mother.

Annabel’s Mom, Beatrice is a selfish woman who only cares about herself. She has no interest in Annabel’s children, especially not her son. So it is quite shocking when her mother calls to say she is getting remarried and wants Anna to help with all the planning. As the story unfolds, we learn a lot about Anna and her Mom. We learn sometimes people act a certain way for a reason. I don’t want to give anything away, but I highly recommend Plan Bea. Just as some people are not what you think they are, neither is this story which will keep you interested all the way to the last sentence.
