Friendly Friday Fill-Ins


It’s Friday already – time to fill in the blanks in the four sentences we get every week from our co-hosts Ellen of 15andMeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.    It’s easy – we get two sentences from each of our hosts and we fill in the blanks in the sentences.   Then what?   Well, we visit everyone who’s linked up to the blog and see how THEY filled things in – amazing how much you can learn about people from some blanks in a sentence………besides, it’s lots of fun.    If you want to join in – just click Annie’s badge above – link up and VOILA.

Here are this week’s sentences and Mom is doing them this week as they are more “people” oriented – thank heavens I don’t pay taxes so can’t fill that one in AT ALL……!!    Mom’s fill-ins are in GREEN.

1. My Chinese zodiac animal is PIG – I adore pigs so I’m “good” with that!.

2. My zodiac sign is LIBRA and I am “right on” with much of what the standard Libra description says – for the most part anyway!.

3. Income tax season is something my husband deals with but we are LUCKY because we almost always break even – our tax people have us right on target apparently.

4. In hindsight, I can say without any hesitation that I have had a wonderful life thusfar – ups and downs yes but I rejoiced over the ups and endured the downs and here I am – still going strong as I head into my 71st year.   Grateful?  You betcha.


Thanks Mom!    I don’t know any of that stuff about signs and zodiac animals but I hope my sign is CAT – I’m getting good at being one I think!

Oh before I go, I know some of you read our Thursday blog where Angel Sammy gives us a photo to write a poem about every week?    Well the photo that Angel Sammy gave us yesterday for NEXT Thursday’s poetry inspiration was a cool photo and we thought it might make an even cooler puzzle.    So here’s a puzzle for those of you who enjoy jigsaws.   First the photo, then the puzzle.   Good luck!  You can post your time in comments if you like!


Hugs, Teddy and Mom

  1. It’s fun to learn what everyone’s animal is and their zodiac sign. Fun. Taxes is another story.

    Love the puzzle. I’ll do that later. Got to get my visits in first.

    I linked this post to Feline Friday, because Teddy wanted me to.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥


  2. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. My mom is a Libra too, I seem to get along very well with Libras 🙂 That is great that you come out even on the taxes, better than paying in. Excellent answer for #4. I love puzzles even if they take me forever to do 🙂 Have a nice weekend! XO


  3. Mom laughs because her sign is an OX!!! She even has a little golden ox that our human sister-in-law gave her when she married our human brother. It is fun reading about what all those animals mean as one’s sign.

    • The whole horoscope/zodiac thing is a culture unto itself…’s all very interesting and ancient in origin so I suppose SOMEBODY knew what they were talking about but it’s all CHINESE to me (hahaha). Actually I fit the Libra and Pig thing to a “T”.

    • My Mom and I are always happy. At least we TRY to be every single day. Tax time is stressful for my Dad as he’s our “tax dood”…..he will be taking all the paperwork to our tax lady the end of this month then we just HOPE FOR THE BEST!!!

      Happy Saturday!
      Love, Teddy

    • Actually Mom will turn 71 this year…..but she doesn’t believe it herself….LOL. Time flies by so quickly. You are sweet to say that you didn’t think she was as ancient as she is though! 🙂

      Love and Hugs, Teddy


    • The puzzles are fun aren’t they? This was an easy one we thought but did your Mom say like my Mom did that she’d like to be on that island for a few days? I’m SURE they would want US with them though aren’t you?????? We could catch lizars!

      Love, Teddy


  5. Our mom feels exactly as Mom Pam does in her #4 completion. She says that even with her health and mobility issues and all the surgeries, she fills totally blessed to have had the life and opportunities she’s had. She also knows that Mom Pam’s friendship has really enriched her life as well. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer


    • Awwww……that makes my Mom feel special (she told me so!). Mom has often said that she wouldn’t change a thing….from difficulty comes learning, from sad comes growing – to everything there is a reason. Mom is super grateful for your Mom’s friendship too just like I’m happy to have a whole house full of Blue Fur Buddies!

      Love, Teddy


  6. I was born in the Chinese year of the rabbit, but in the Vietnamese zodiac it is the sign of the cat.
    I am going to do the puzzle and hope that my internet connection lasts long enough!


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
