Friendly Fill-Ins


Hello Friday Fill-In Friends!    Let’s do this!    Every Friday we fill in the blanks from our two co-hosts Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing and have a lot of fun doing it.   they give us two sentences each with words to fill in – totally fun.    You can click the badge above and join in if you want to.    It’s always interesting to read everyone’s fill-ins.

This week I’m letting my dear old Mom do ALL the filling in.    Her words are in BLUE!

1. I would like to see what books are on anyone’s bookshelves. ( Thanks Melissa ).(I think you can learn a lot about someone from what books they have – always interesting)
2. I adore taking vacations, going out to dinner, my cat Teddy, my husband David, my family and of course my LIFE.
3. There is no amount of money you could pay me to get me to parachute out of an airplane.
4. When I failed to  “get” shorthand in business school, I made up my OWN version of shorthand and not only passed the civil service tests to be a clerk-stenographer but used my “Pamhand” for several years – WHATEVER WORKS!

OK Mom – good job.    Thanks for filling in this week, I just couldn’t think of anything to fill in the blanks – sometimes my little brain goes on holiday.   I think it’s on one now.   Now that you’ve finished my blog post for tomorrow, can we pretty please go outside for a cruise in the yard?

OF COURSE we can Teddy – you know I can’t resist that face!

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam


Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday everyone!    Time to be thankful and we really, truly are.   Have had some beautiful weather for several days – even a tiny hint of Fall in the air in the early morning with 60 degree temps.    Mom and Dad are talking more and more about their vacation in October so I’m thinking more and more about MY vacation at the cat hotel.   Tee Hee

Before I talk more about thankfuls, I want to always remember to thank my friend Brian for hosting this Thursday Blog Hop which is everyone’s chance to THINK and VOICE what they’re thankful for.   Always thankful to say that we’re all healthy and happy.   Very thankful for friends – friends get you through the tough times and are fun to share the FUN times with….makes them even more fun.

Angel Sammy sent me his poetic post for today so I’ll share it with you now………………………


We Meet Again!   It’s Poetry Time!

Hi everyone.   Thursday means poetry and I hope you have written one to share this week.  I gave you a whopper of a photo to use for inspiration last Thursday so I hope you had fun coming up with a poem to go with it.

Here’s the photo I gave you followed by my own poem:

The Angry Sea

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©August 17, 2022


The seas are capable of frightening fits of emotion

She can be calm as a pond or an angry, stormy ocean

Their incredible strength should NOT be ignored

Just ask the guy on crutches with the broken surf board!


I know – shorter than usual but sometimes you don’t need a million words to get your point across.   The power of the seas is awesome.   In this photo it almost looks like the people are on a ship but they aren’t – they’re on solid ground but storm seems to be of incredible strength and I know I sure would be out of there in an instant and back at the Tavern having a nice pub lunch instead of out in the middle of the unbelievably rough sea!    Cool photo though.   

Now – would you like to see the one I have for you for NEXT week’s poetic fun????

Oh boy!   BORN TO BE WILD?  Well maybe but I just bet there are some anxious parents on the sidelines.   These bikes are called “Striders” by the way – no pedals – they’re foot powered.    

So let’s see what we can come up with for next Thursday using this photo as inspiration…………………have fun with it!

Meanwhile, stay happy, healthy and KIND………….

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!


Love from the Bridge – Angel Sammy


I like your poem of course Angel Sammy – that wave is soooooo scary though I’m not sure I’d want to be anywhere near it…..but then other than splashing in puddles, I’m not a fan of water unless I’m drinking it!      See you next week…………..

Big Hugs, Teddy

Greetings students!  We hope you’ve already COMMENTED!

We always wear seatbelts in the car but in class?  FORGETABOUTIT!

OK – well let’s review the rules for playing Teaser AND show you the badges you might win…………………..ready?



Alright everyone – out of our way – we’re gonna win badges today or ELSE!

So we might as well get underway since everyone is – well – a little RESTLESS this morning………………….

ATTENTION!  Will the Teaser Security Guard please report to class with photo?

Here’s today’s photo Professors!


Where Was This Photo Taken??

Pretty photo isn’t it………………..Thanks to our Guest Teaser person!

Cheer Team?  I think it might be wise for you to come in and give the students a cheer………………they look like they’re already getting eyestrain trying to figure this one out.

Another Teaser for you to figure out
Someone will guess it first we have no doubt
Looks like we’re flying over the city in a balloon
Try to guess it right or look like a buffoon!
Tomorrow we’ll be back with good news and bad
Make someone proud like your Mom or your Dad! />

I’ll be the class clown!

Let’s head to the cafeteria for brunch shall we??????

We’re ready for you everyone!   Grab a tray and head to the cafeteria line!

The Menu of the Day:

See you tomorrow for the TELL ALL!!  GOOD LUCK!

SPARK on Monday


Time for a SPARK.  “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.

I have read a LOT of incredible quotes from Albert Einstein in my life but have never run across this one.    Gosh.   I really wish I had seen it years ago…………..

It took me a little longer than I wish it had for me to launch my ship………………but when I did, finally, I grew up and found the ocean to be not as scary as I thought it was going to be.     It’s not how long it takes you to launch – it’s what you make of the journey you have begun.

Hugs, Pam
