The A-Z Blogging Challenge-U

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly 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 ( see below) to the hop so everyone can visit you.

1. If I couldn’t live in my country, I would live in ______________________.
2. I wish I had kept _________________________ from my childhood.
3. I would choose _________ over _________.
4. _________ doesn’t matter in the long run.
My answers:
1. If I couldn’t live in my country, I would live in Canada. I like cold weather and I have lots of blogging friends there.
2. I wish I had kept my genie bottle from my childhood. It was green , smoke came out and when you asked a question, there was a little door that opened with the answer.  I found a photo of it on flickr-click here.
3. I would choose spending time with my cats over doing anything else.
4. Being #1 at anything doesn’t matter in the long run. I am not a competitive person and I really dislike any kind of things like The Olympics.
We are up to the letter O in The A-Z Blogging Challenge. Back in 2016, I wrote about Tom Cox’s Under the Paw. Click here. 
The Cat’s Guide to Human Behavior as told to Xina Marie Uhl is a short(39 pages), but fun book. It is written for cats to explain our odd behavior and help them deal with it.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

  1. Spending time with cats is so relaxing, and i would guess a lot of our behavior would baffle our feline friends.

    Thanks for hosting!

  2. Cat guides are so helpful when you want to learn more about the kitties we live with. I have several old ones. Outdated, too, MOL! Things change in the way we care for our furkids, for the better, mostly!

    1. If I couldn’t live in my (adopted) country, I would live in Canada, where I was born…or the Netherlands, where my parents came from.
    2. I wish I had kept more toys and mementoes,( esp a special Bible Story book that my mother taught us to read Dutch from), from my childhood. Somehow it got lost…
    3. I would choose hard work over boredom., anyday!
    4. housekeeping doesn’t matter in the long run…but home keeping DOES!

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I am sorry your Bible from childhood got lost. XO

  3. If I couldn’t live in my country I would like to live in New Zealand. It has a very similar climate to us with no extremes of temperature.

  4. Oh yes, Mum dislikes the idea of humans wanting to compete with each other all the time too. That’s why she is not a sports fan and finds it all so boring.

  5. Love all your answers. I thought of Canada, but it’s to cold for me and I’m a fair weather kind of gal.

    Thank you for xo-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins. I always enjoy participating.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug to you and scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  6. That genie bottle is adorable! I’ve never seen anything like that. If you ever need to move, you are always welcome in Canada. We would love to have you 🙂 xo

  7. Canada is a very interesting option. There are lots of things to love about Canada. Your genie bottle sounds fun and memorable. My Fill-Ins…
    1. If I couldn’t live in my country, I would live in the Umbria region of Italy.
    2. I wish I had kept… I think I kept the things that were truly important to me in my childhood.
    3. I would choose salty over sweet.
    4. Worrying about what people think of me doesn’t matter in the long run. In the short run either 🙂
    Scritches to the Meowing Crew.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I assume you have been to Italy. I like sweet and salty 🙂 Have a nice weekend. XO

  8. great answers! and thanks for the book recommendation! Cheers and I’ll see ya tomorrow!

  9. We love your answers. We had the same one for #1 although it would be COLD for us. That genie bottle is fantastic.

    The Florida Furkids

  10. Gosh I never heard of a genie in a bottle……I would love to have one of those (for real!). We agree about the competition thing – what’s the point and who needs that kind of pressure? We have enough of that as it is. Happy Friday and thanks for co-hosting Fill-Ins – we look forward to it EVERY SINGLE WEEK!

    Hugs, Teddy

  11. I think cats must think our behaviours are bizarre LOL

    I liked your replies too especially 3 heheh! 😾😾

    Have a safetastic weekend 😷😷😷

  12. Great answers! I don’t know why I didn’t think of #3 but of course I’d always choose the kitties. Have a great weekend!

  13. You must have a bazillion books! Thanks for hosting the fill-ins. They were very hard this week.

  14. I like your answer for number 1 Ellen:) The Cat Guide looks like a good book. Take care and have a good day!

  15. Wonderful fillins and another good reading suggestions.
    Hugs Cecilia

  16. Good answers and that is a cool bottle! You did good on that tough letter U!

  17. Granny loved the serie The Genie in the bottle, it must be related, right? 😸Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Furriday. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞

  18. We really did have very similar answers to #1 and #3. Canada seems like it would be such a lovely place to live. And I really like how you answered #4. I’m like you and have always disliked competition. I don’t see the purpose or fun of it. Purrs!

  19. I have not been to Canada but have plans to visit Nova Scotia in September. It is where my great grandparents were born and I’d love to see it. Hopefully, by then we can travel.

  20. Your genie bottle looks cool. I never saw one of those before.. We’d welcome you to Canada. It’s a great country….we like it. We….the whole family doesn’t like sports and never watch them.

    Interesting sentences and fill ins.

    Jean, Shoko, Tyebe and Bill

  21. 1. If I couldn’t live in my country, I would live in The Land Down Under.
    2. I wish I had kept my comic books from my childhood.
    3. I would choose retirement over working. 35 years of getting up at 5 am wore me out.
    4. Wow, what doesn’t matter in the long run? Well, cats, making dinner, good books…

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I bet the comic books would be worth a fortune. I could never get up that early.

  22. We enjoyed reading your answers ! Canada sounds a little bit too cold to us, we would prefer New Zealand as it is very similar to Switzerland in many ways. Purrs

  23. Great fill ins, we’re thinking alike on #4! MOL
