Filling In!

Time for Fun, Friendly, Friday Fill-Ins!

FILLINS

Hosted jointly by 15andmeowing AND McGuffy’s Reader!

This week Mom and I decided that BOTH of us would do filling out of this week’s sentences!    We’ve been switching off each week and thought we’d both dip our toes in this time around.   SO, my fill-ins are in BLUE and Mom’s are in RED!

Here are the sentences we had to fill in:

1. My favorite way to exercise is NOT to do it in the first place (haha)! Take a nap – I twitch around a lot when I sleep and that counts as exercise!

2. Something I learned last week was that I don’t look as horrible in capri slacks as I thought I would.  Not to try something NEW in my diet – I really paid for that experiment!

3. I am sentimental about my past – I have been through a lot but I wouldn’t change a thing – I’m content with it  My toy box…..I don’t play much any longer but once in a while I go sniff everything and stare at all my toys and think how lucky I am .

4. Some people may find it surprising to know that I’ve written three books, co-authored another book with four other female writers, and edited a book of poetry for a poetry publisher.  That I am now allowing my Mom to give me my medication by hand and no longer does she have to sneak it into my food!.


There you have it!   Fill-ins done for another week!    Thanks to Annie at McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen at 15 and Meowing – and if you click on the BADGE above, you can go to McGuffy’s Reader and join the blog hop link with your OWN fill-ins!!

Today is also our Friday housecleaning day……………some of you asked about the Broomhildas – well they have become so popular that we have trouble getting on their schedule so today, we are doing our own thing here at my house…………….EEEEEK!

I'm ready!

I’m ready!

Mom's ready!

Mom’s ready!

Hey - who's that?!

Hey – who’s that?!

CLEANINGDAD

Take that guy whoever he is off trash duty!

Dad's ready to go!

Dad’s ready to go!

We miss the Broomhildas…….but Mom is working on getting another cleaning crew in to help us old folks out…………..you’ll know all about them when we find them believe me!

Meanwhile, have a super Friday and remember, tomorrow is BACON DAY!!!!!!

Big Hugs, Sammy

    • Fill-ins are so much fun aren’t they? We loved your interview at Bacon’s place……he’s a real buddy and pal. Yes, my Mom wrote a mystery novel (see the link on my sidebar to Amazon!) and two kids books…..and of course she HELPS me write my blog. Thanks Mom!

      Love, Sammy

  1. Great double fill-ins this week, buddy. I’m glad you still give your toys a sniff and a stare now and then. That’s about what I do, because I want Mom to pick out the right toy for me. Your mom’s exercise routine is pretty funny. And I am proud of you taking your medicine so nicely. What a brave boy. xoxo

    Love and licks,

    • I’m trying to be brave – so far so good but you know, it’s tempting to whine and put up a fight when it comes to medicine! I think it’s nice that you want your Mom to pick your toys out – some days some toys are just RIGHT and others are WRONG so letting your Mom pick is a good idea!

  2. Those are good answers from you and your mum, Sammy. I am glad you are being good to take your pills. I don’t like them either but take them because I know they are helping me. In fact we both know it, and it is helping us to stay with our families for hopefully a long time yet.

    • You are 100% right on Flynn. Just knowing if we didn’t take our pills we might be gone is one thing that definitely is keeping us around to take care of our humans longer!!!! I’m so glad we’re BOTH here!

  3. Thank you Sam and your Mom for doing the fill-ins, I enjoyed both sets of answers. I like the way you both exercise, sounds like how I do it. Sorry you learned the hard way about new foods Sam. You are a very lucky kitty and so loved by your folks and the entire Blogosphere.
    I can’t believe The Broomhildas didn’t have time for you, you are the reason why they are so popular. I think SuzieQ needs to have a talk with them. Have a great weekend! XO

    • Suzie says she’ll send Cousin Madge over to the Broomhildas to have a talk – I’m afraid the Broomhildas will grab the first plane out of town if Madge gets involved! I’m glad you liked our fill-ins…..we enjoyed BOTH answering them so we may do that again. Happy FRIDAY!

  4. Hi, Sammy, I’m betting your Mom looks pretty nifty in those capris!!! And what a good guy you are to take your meds now. I know she’s relieved to not have to try to sneak those doses in you any longer!

    • Mom is very happy not to have to hide the meds in my food – it never really worked well – now all she has to do is risk my sharp as sharks’ teeth toofies from chomping down on her fingers as she shoves that pill in the back of my throat! Mom is adjusting to the capris – she says she feels naked. HAHAHA

      Love, Sammy

  5. Sammy, your answer to #4 made us cheer, and all the activities at Cat Scouts should be keeping you fit regardless of all the eating Scout’s do. We continue to enjoy finding out more about our friends. Sending lots of love to you and Mom Pam. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • It’s true- at least at Scouts I’m fit as a fiddle – only in reality am I not fit! HAHAHA I’m loving the fill-ins too – there’s a bottomless pit of information about each other yet to come I’m sure!!!!

  6. Awesome fill-in’s cousin. I hope you have a fantastic day and LONG weekend. I would like to say we plan on keeping lots of snuggles with mommy. BUT, we heard her talking last night and she has to pull in some extra time at work to get things caught up… AGAIN. Sighs… it has to eventually get caught up, right? XOXO – Bacon

    • Oh I’m sorry you’ll be abandoned by the Mother Figure this weekend – I bet your Dad will “fill-in” well though…….Maybe if your Mom works extra time this weekend and gets things caught up you can COUNT on next weekend being snuggly!

      • Amen cousin. I like the way you think. I hope that is the idea for the next weekend. Mom is making – I mean asking dad to go with her tomorrow. I think she is going to put him to work. She be hilarious them two working together. XOXO – Bacon

  8. My human is surprised, reading this week’s fill-ins, how many other humans hate exercise! She loves it. In fact, if she doesn’t exercise, she gets in kind of a bad mood (something about exercise raising endorphins, I gather). I love exercising too – but then, I am not even quite 2-1/2 yet.

    Like

    • My Mom USED to exercise but she has leg problems and even walking sometimes bothers her…..so she’s a lazy bum instead (tee hee) which means I have more LAP TIME available!!!!! Good for your human – she will be healthier for that effort!

    • Those toys of ours that are torn into bits are the BEST aren’t they? I got a toy when I was a baby from someone – it was made out of lots of rubber rings…..it’s all gone except for one of the rings and I carry it around with me all the time. If we love something (even if it has no eyes, ears, feet or tail) it’s purrrrrfect anyway!

  10. I liked reading both of your fill-ins. I didn’t know your mom had written more books…pretty nifty.

    That’s the trouble with a cleaning outfit. They are just not reliable. Hope you find a new crew so your mom and dad’s life is a little easier.

  12. So with your Mom on exercising BUT I know I need to get back to walking! I do not know why your Mom would think she would look horrible in capri slacks!! I think it is great that your Mom is able to give you your meds by hand although it was interesting how she was using different ways to get you to take them. Just happy you are taking them, Sammy! I don’t like taking my meds either… blech!
