Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday

Standard

It’s that time again!    Fill-in the blanks with our co-hosts, 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs.    Each Friday we get TWO sentences from each of them and we take it from there – filling in the blanks however we want to.    It’s fun, and easy, and we thank them for thinking of such a fun regular feature!

This week I let my Mom fill in ALL the blanks.    I like to give her a little treat like that once in a while.   After all, she makes my life fun so I want to help make HER life fun too!    Her answers are in RED.

1. I think it would be fun to do a special European cruise for my 30th anniversary next year with my husband!.
2. I have a hankering for chocolate chip cookies AND I have the ingredients, so I’m going to fulfill my hankering.
3. Being stuck in Paris on 9/11 is a memory I will never forget.
4. If I were given the choice to be immortal, I would pass on the opportunity – I have liked my life in this time but not so sure I would like it into the future so “once is enough” for me!.

OK Mom thanks for filling in.   Maybe next week I’ll take a turn………or we’ll do them together………we’ll see what the sentences are next week and decide OK?  OK!     Thanks to our co-hosts for making Friday so much fun.

WHAT YOU LOOKIN’ AT????

Love, Teddy

Friday!   YAY!    It’s been a long and hot week here and I think you can say that for almost anywhere.   Summer is being MEAN this year.    I haven’t even asked to go outside.   That’s when you know its’ bad.    Today is fill-in Friday which is when our two co-hosts each give us two sentences full of holes – we fill in the holes (blanks!) and voila – we find out more stuff about each other.   Fun huh?   Well it is, and if you wanna join in – click the badge above and link up.

Here are our four sentences for this week.   Mom and I both filled in………..she did more than I did though!   Her words are BLUE and mine are GREEN.

1. I have been contemplating the possibility of one last European cruise for my husband and me – for our 30th anniversary next year.

2. I want to read a newspaper article about something uplifting/happy/positive JUST ONCE!.

3. People should worry less about getting older and more about enjoying whatever age they are NOW.

4. I want to make the world a better place by making people smile when they see me!!!.

 

Yep – that’s me and Mom for the week…………..we put our heads together and filled in the blanks.   Thanks to our co-hosts for giving us such fun every Friday.   Now I’m READY FOR THE WEEKEND!

Me and my Mom say HAPPY FRIDAY!    

Hugs, Teddy

Happy Friday!   Time to complete some sentences that have holes left in them on purpose by our co-hosts with an eye towards divulging a little bit of ourselves so you know us better!   Sneaky huh?!   Well, mostly it’s just fun to do and if you’d like to join in, click the badge above which links to 15AndMeowing and link up!!!

We get two sentences from each of our co-hosts and each week my Mom and I kind of trade off who gets to fill-in……………………Mom’s in charge this week and her words are in RED.

1. Summer is a good time to stay inside (it’s so hot and humid and buggy outside!).

2. The most recent person  that I talked on the phone with was my sister – we talked about what a nice visit we had for her 81st birthday on Wednesday!.
3. I thought I would grow out of wanting to live happily ever after, but I haven’t.
4. I feel annoyed when people ask me why I don’t color my hair (it’s a mousy brown with the occasional gray hair – big deal – I’m sorry if it’s boring!!).
Thanks Mom…………..Did you say MOUSIE brown hair?    I think MOUSIE brown is a GREAT color!!!!!!!

No I’m not a throw rug Mom…………….step OVER the kitty and not on him please!   

Love, Teddy

YAY!  It’s Friday!   Time for the fill-in-the-blanks Hop co-hosted by Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing.    We do have fun with this hop and from all appearances everyone ELSE who plays along does too.   It’s also an easy hop.   Just fill in the blanks – but first you need to JOIN US by clicking on the badge above and filling out the LINKY TOOL so we will know we need to visit you and see your fill-ins.

Here are the four sentences we have for this Friday.   Two from each co-host.    I decided to be the one to fill-in this week instead of getting Mom to “go for it” !    My fill-ins are in BLUE.

1. I am going to be super happy for my whole life with my Mom and Dad – they take such good care of me.

2. I want to be more outside than inside but Mom and Dad think I’m out ENOUGH!
3. Once in a blue moon, I catch a skink in my garage and I play with it until it goes to sleep forever (Mom uses the words Rainbow Bridge for Skinks instead of SLEEP!).
4. I have a large collection of toys that belonged to Angel Sammy and lots of my OWN toys but I am drawn to HIS!)
So there you have it – me filling in the blanks and me wishing all of you a happy Friday!

Hugs, Me and Mom too!

 

Friday Filling In AND Shopping!

Standard

Let’s Do Some Filling In!!

Today is Friday which means BLOG HOP time with our co-hosts Ellen of 15andMeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader with their “fill in the sentence” Hop.    What a great way to get to know your friends right?    At my house though sometimes Mom fills in the sentences, sometimes I do, and sometimes we BOTH do…………today Mom said I could do it ALL BY MYSELF!

If you’d like to join in the fun – click the badge above and go to Annie’s blog – use the LINKY tool she provides and WHAM BAM HOWDY SAM you’re part of the Hop……………My fill-ins are in RED today.

1.The flu shot is one shot that I do NOT have to have since I’m a CAT – besides I get plenty of other shots because I AM a cat so it balances out!.

2. I think everyone should take their pet for a walk at least once daily.

3. I (almost) always wait for a passer by to ask them to put me on the bathroom counter for a sink drink, because I won’t go up on the counter myself.

4. I (almost) never  eat wet cat food because apparently wherever I lived my first year of life didn’t feed it to me so I only like kibble stuff.

 

About #4 above – my Mom has tried every possible type of wet food that there is and I absolutely won’t go beyond one or two licks of ANY OF IT.    Wherever I was before I was adopted they apparently only gave me water from a faucet and only gave me kibble to eat.    Mom has tried now for a year to get me to change those habits but I’m being ONE STUBBORN GUY!

I won’t eat wet PERIOD!

No that’s not a photo of me – I’m much cuter (!) – but I am very stubborn.     BUT – so is my Mom so I’m sure the “FOOD WARS” will continue.    She would rather I eat raw or wet and knowing her, this is a battle that could go on for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG time!

I love ya Mom but I EATS WHAT I EATS and THAT’S ALL THAT I EATS!!!!

 

Happy Friday everybody!    Tomorrow I’ll be cooking up some kind of bacon THING in my Castle Kitchen at Castle Baconia………..so I hope to see you then!

Now – let’s SHOP for Bacon’s Shopping Around The World Hop!

Even though tomorrow is my bacon day – TODAY is SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD with our friend Bacon so you won’t have to wait until tomorrow to get a recipe from me!!

Each month Bacon gives us a chance to share a recipe for something different – this month happens that he chose SANDWICHES as the subject of our recipe/information exchange and I am the KING of SAMMMICHES.    Of course I HAD to use bacon in my recipe contribution this month – but at least it’s a little bit different from the usual…………may I present:

Teddy’s Bacon, Cheese and Jalapeno Grilled Sandwich

Now the idea is that we share a recipe, give ingredients AND the costs of said ingredients so all of us will know what each other pays for the same stuff – wherever we might live!    That makes it more fun……!

Ingredients

8 slices of bacon (Harris Teeter Smoked Bacon, 16 0z. $4.49)

1/2 jalapeño chile, finely chopped ($.29 each)

1/4 cup butter, softened  (we had already)

8 slices country-style bread (Harris Teeter “Old Fashioned” bread – $.99)

12 oz sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced  (Cabot EXTRA sharp cheddar cheese 8 oz. $3.99)

This recipe is for making FOUR sandwiches but obviously you just “tailor” it to your needs – I personally could eat all four of these myself without sharing.   HAHAHAHAHA

To make the sandwiches all you do is cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove from skillet to paper towel. Add chile to bacon drippings in skillet; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Place chile on paper towel.    Then just spread butter on both sides of each slice of bread. Top each of 4 bread slices with layer of cheese, chopped chile, 2 slices of bacon and another layer of cheese. Cover each with second slice of bread.   To finish the sandwiches up, heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sandwiches until bread is browned and cheese begins to melt. Turn sandwiches; cook until cheese is completely melted.

Talk about yummy – I take care of eating some extra bacon while Mom and Dad eat the sandwiches and sometimes have a cup of tomato soup with them………….everyone wins!!!!

Thanks Bacon for letting us all share prices, ingredients and recipes every month.  I can’t wait to see what our project is next month!

Lotsa Love, Teddy

Gettin’ Ready for Tomorrow!!!!
