Friendly Fill-Ins Week 45

Hi everyone! Time for Friendly Fill-Ins Week 45. Please be sure to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comments.


1. The oldest item in my home is __________________________.

2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is _____________________.


3. My family heritage is                                .
4. My favourite family tradition is                                .

My answers:

  1. The oldest item in my home is this platter that belonged to my paternal grandmother. I am guessing it is from the 1930’s.
  2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is mustard, it expired in March 2015-oops! I actually replaced it Thursday along with the ketchup that also expired in 2015.
  3. My family heritage is Polish on my Mom’s side and French Canadian on my Dad’s side.
  4. My favourite family tradition is the Christmas Eve meal that we put on every year. My maternal grandfather’s family always celebrated with a Polish Wigilia with a several course meatless dinner. I continued that tradition, but it was a lot of work making the foods and no one was thrilled with them so now we do a buffet, but the important part is being together.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

The Nanny

Hi everyone! I am mad at my Mom!

 

She gave me a wet willie, you know when someone sticks a wet finger in your ear. She said it was thyroid medicine so I don’t have to take pills, but it sure felt funny.

Grammie is coming to see my today. I love her so very much and I haven’t seen her since Saturday so I am very thankful she will be here today.

And now for my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter N.

The Nanny
In the 90’s Mom watched The Nanny
about a girl out on her fanny.
Mom liked it so much , she got this


her voice sounds worse than a hiss.

I think my Mom is crazy
and sometimes a bit lazy.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Mom is skipping the movie hop this week because the theme is ancient world and she doesn’t have any recommendations on those.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow, Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Today we want to tell you about a tasty food that all 13 of us like.

*Disclaimer: Chewy sent us a bag of Rachael Ray Nutrish Indoor Complete for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own.

Hey Prancie, why can’t we borrow money from leprechauns?

   I don’t know why Joanie.

They are always a little short. MOL!

  You know what is better than finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

Mom leaving the bag of Rachael Ray Nutrish Indoor food on the bed unattended.

I agree!

All 13 cats LOVED this food. Sammy is on a special diet, but I let him have a little too. The pieces are very small which made it easy for Snowball to eat ( she only has a few teeth). And Phoebe who changes her mind about foods every day has been eating this one for an entire week already.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? Blog Hop and Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays Blog Hop.

  Sammy hopes he is awww…worthy.

This has been a slow reading week. I read a Biography about James Gandolfini, but it wasn’t authorized by his family so I was not thrilled with the information the author gathered.

I am enjoying a book sale find, A Cat’s Life : Dulcy’s Story by Dee Ready. It was written in memory of the author’s cat that lived with her for 17 and a half years. I love reading about the bond between humans and their cats, they are all unique. It is available on Amazon new, used and a Kindle version too. Click here

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post for a chance to win a St. Patrick’s Day catnip mat. Winner will be announced Tuesday.

Selfie Sunday

  “Watcha doing Phoebe ? ”

( Phoebe) Getting ready to wear the Queen Esther costume for Purim. You have to be special to wear it.

(Joanie) I iz special.

(Phoebe) Yes, you are special. You can wear it.

    Happy Purim to all our Jewish friends. If you want to learn about Purim, there is a great website called My Jewish Learning that has 9 facts about Purim. One fact is that Queen Esther was a vegetarian.

Did you see what I did there? I tricked Joanie into wearing the outfit. I am having a St. Patrick’s Day giveaway. Mom is going to make a catnip mat with this fabric. Just comment on today’s post to be entered in the giveaway. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much!

Guest Post By Cats Scouts Maggie and Felix

Hi everyone! It has been quite some time since we have had a guest post from our friends, Cat Scouts Maggie and Felix so we are thrilled to have them today.

                             

Greetings, everybody!  We have missed visiting, so we are very excited to tell you about a new Turkish film, “Kedi,” all about the famous cats of Istanbul.  For centuries, the city’s residents and visitors have befriended the thousands of cats, fed them, and sometimes provided shelter and veterinary care.  Even President Obama was photographed petting one of the kitties during his visit to Turkey a couple of years ago!

   I

“Kedi” not only follows the activities of selected street cats, but the film also highlights the importance of the animal-human bond in an historic city undergoing massive development and population pressures.

We can’t wait to see this film, and hope it comes to a theater near you!  If not, you can download it on Vimeo.  Just “google” Kedi download.

Click here

Thank you Maggie and Felix. We also want to join Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. Phoebe wanted to see how she would look on the big screen so she went to Photofunia to make this.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 44

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins Week 44. Don’t forget to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comment sections too. Thank you to all who participate, we love learning about you.


1. I hope _______________________ gets renewed for another season.

2. My first crush was __________________________.

3.                             usually makes me                          .

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be                                       .
My answers:
1. I hope American Housewife gets renewed for another season.
2. My first crush was Barney Rubble ( Flintstones). My Mom used to call my great aunt Alice and have her pretend to be Barney, I thought I was really talking to Barney. I remember asking him to leave Betty so he could come visit me. I was probably 4 years old at the time and apparently a bit of a hussy.
  Phoebe is posing with my stuffed Barney that I won at a carnival years ago. We even named a cat Barney,  my hubby remembered me telling him I used to love Barney Rubble-plus we found her in the barn.
  Barney looked a lot like Brody
3. Leaving my home unattended usually makes me nervous which is why I always have Grammie stay with cats if we are going to be out longer than 30 minutes. I am not afraid of someone stealing my belongings, but I fear that if someone broke in, the cats would get out and get run over in the street.
4. If I were a super-hero, I would be Cat Woman, of course.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Before I start my post, I would like to have a moment of silence for Boomer of the Trout Talkin Tabbies. Rest in Peace

 

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop because I am thankful that I got to see my Grammie and she brought me treats too. I love my Grammie so very much!

And now for my M poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Meds
I hate taking pills
I would rather pay bills.
Twice a day, a pink med
Mom catches me in bed
And at night a liquid that is icky
it is even a little sticky
Taking meds stinks
I wish Mom would give them to Jinx.

We are also joining Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks.This week is  Remakes/Sequels you want to see made.

  1. Overboard, the Goldie Hawn movie would make a great remake with her daughter, Kate Hudson playing her role.
  2. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, imagine how much more fun it would be to skip school with the help of cell phones and modern technology.
  3. It’s a Wonderful Life, I would like to see a remake of that, the same time period and story just with new actors. I doubt it would be as good, but I would like to see someone try.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. I hope _______________________ gets renewed for another season.

2. My first crush was __________________________.

3.                             usually makes me                          .

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be                                       .
