Friendly Fill-Ins Friday


Woo Hoo!   Friday is here and it’s time to do a bit of filling in.   Every Friday our co-hosts Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing give us TWO sentences each with lots of “holes” in them that need to be filled in.   It lets tell a bit about ourselves when we fill those blanks!    If you’d like to have fun with us – just click the badge above and it will take you to 15andMeowing where you can link up.

Mom and I had a bit of a conundrum figuring out who should answer which sentences this week but we compromised.   We took turns.    My words are in GREEN and hers are in RED!

1. Bacon is my favorite item of the foodables residing in our refrigerator right now!

2. My favorite character on Big Bang Theory is (Neither Teddy nor myself have ever seen Big Bang Theory so we are passing on this one!!).

3. I could set a world record for time spent napping but something tells me there would be a LOT of us in that contest for the record!

4. Diving off the high board is the craziest thing I’ve ever done. (I’m NOT a daredevil but when I was a kid on the swim team we HAD to jump off the high board then dive off the board to stay on the swim team so I did it………ONCE………..NEVER AGAIN).
There you have it!   Another getting to know you post by me and Mom.    We’re a good team.    Oh yes – about our answer to #2 – we know we are probably two of the only people in the USA who haven’t watched Big Bang Theory regularly.   Mom remembers seeing it ONCE a couple of years ago.   She just doesn’t remember the names of the characters.   DUH.    Oh well – I’m sure we watch lots of stuff on PBS that nobody else has seen either.     Different strokes for different folks????

Love, Teddy

I don’t know about BIG BANG theory but I’m familiar with BIG BUTT !!!   HAHAHAHAHA

Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday


YAY it’s Friday!    Time to have some filling in the blanks kind of fun with our co-hosts 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs.   Wanna play?  Just click the badge above, go to 15andmeowing and LINK up.    We learn a lot about each other with these cool sentences we’ve given to complete.

I allowed Mom to be the “FILLER-INNER” again this week.   She’s got a knack for it – I limp along but she can do it!   GO MOM GO!    Her own words are in BLUE.


1. 13 years ago, I was starting a year of treatment for cancer – and I WON!.
2. By this time next year, I hope to be planning a river cruise in Europe for hubby and me.
3. One word that describes me is determined.
4. If my life were a book or movie, it would be in the comedic tragedy (yes I made that up!) genre.
Ta Da!   OK Mom………thanks a bunch.    I had no idea how to fill those in and you whipped them out in five seconds flat.    Now – what do you say to taking me outside for a walk.   It’s actually in the 80s and super sunny so you’d better bring some iced tea – I feel a nap in the leaves coming on!

Hugs, Teddy

Friendly Friday Fill-In Fun


Friday!   Time for fill-in fun with our co-hosts 15andMeowing and Four-Legged Furballs.     Two sentences with “holes” in them for us to fill from each of our co-hosts makes for a whole lot of Friday fun.  If you’d like to play along, click the badge above and go to 15andMeowing to sign/link up!

Obviously this week I had to allow – oops – I mean ASK my Mom to be the fill-in expert because they weren’t really “kitty questions” for the most part.    Besides, she needs a break from the usual blog stuff she does for me sometimes right?   Right!     Mom’s fill-in words are in BLUE!


1. I got my first cell phone in who knows what year – it was a long time ago and I’ve never upgraded to something other than a good old flip-phone that I don’t use for anything but calling AAA or David – no texting, no photos, etc. – that shows you how OLD I am right????? 
2. I wish the word HOMELESS could be removed from the English language. (If that word COULD be removed it would just mean that NOBODY – human or animal – would not have a HOME so HOMELESS would be an unnecessary word)
3. I’ll never outgrow my sense of humor or my love of life.

4. Just about everything make(s) me feel old.
Thanks Mom – you always say “you’re as old as you feel”…………….I know you have good days and bad days and I think all of us human or animal do……but every day I have with you and Dad is a GOOD DAY and I hope the three of us are together for a very long time.
Hope everybody has a super duper Friday AND weekend……………!!

Didn’t you see the DO NOT DISTURB sign Mom??????

Love, Teddy

Friendly Fill-Ins and Fun Reading!


Happy Friday!    It’s time for the Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop co-hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs.    I’m also taking the opportunity to tell you about Ellen Pilch’s brand new book “I Am Not A Skunk” which is her second book and just as adorable as “Prancie’s Prayer” which was also about one of her many kitties.

First comes the filling in fun!    Each of our co-hosts gives us TWO sentences with blanks to fill in……..and when we fill the blanks in and share through the Hop we find out fun stuff about our friends who are also in the Hop.    If you’d like to join us – just click on the badge above – it will take you to 15andMeowing and you can link up.    I let my Mom do the filling in this week – my little Easter gift to her (hahaha).    Mom’s words are in EASTERY PINK!

1. An Easter ( or Passover) memory that  I have is getting excited about wearing my Easter dress, hat and gloves to Sunday School on Easter Sunday when I was a little girl.

2. I hope to purchase smaller sized clothes (yes that means I want to lose weight!) this year.

3. When the days are warm, I love taking Teddy outside for a walk.

4. If the Easter Bunny visited my house, he would be confused since I hide Easter eggs for my husband myself!!
Now we want to tell you about Miss Ellen’s adorable new book.    It’s a charming story about another of her many kitties and how she came to find her forever home with Ellen and her husband.   Ellen’s first book was about her kitty Prancie and this one is about sweet Emmy.    Because Emmy is a black and white kitty she was mistaken for a skunk when first seen in the yard!    After a clever way of proving she was indeed a kitty looking for a meal and possible home, Emmy gets her wish and joins the Pilch tribe of kitties to live happily ever after.
The book is available on Amazon – you may click the cover and it will take you right to the page on Amazon where you can purchase the book.    Don’t miss out – add this one to your own collection or get it now for a special “little one” in your life.   It’s beautifully written AND illustrated.    We can’t wait for Ellen to write another book about one of her other rescue kitties!

Dear Emmy – we know you’re not a skunk!!!! 

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

1. I used to be able to stay up late, but I no longer can. (that might have something to do with the fact I get up at 3AM!)

3. I’m notorious for my homemade biscotti.

4. There’s no use crying over the past – concentrate on the future.
OK Mom…………..you did good!    Now let’s go outside shall we?    I’m ready for some fresh air and exercise.   You deserted me all day yesterday visiting your sister in W. Virginia and today is ALL ABOUT ME ME ME ME!    (haha)

Hugs, Teddy

Friendly Fill-Ins…..and MORE


YAY!   Friday is here!    That means it’s time to fill in some blanks that we get every week from our co-hosts, Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing.    You can join in the fun yourself if you click the badge above and link up.    It’s easy – Each of them give us two sentences full of holes – well – not holes really – blanks……and when we fill them in – you get to find out interesting stuff about US !   Coolio huh?

We have “AND MORE” in our title today because after fill-ins from ME today, we have an “EXTRA”………..it’s a little tale Mom created for a contest she’s entering.    We have to publish it here on the blog as a requirement of entering so we tacked it onto the fill-ins.

Here’s the fill-in fun first…………………AND this Friday I decided that I – Teddy Bear Kimmell – would fill the blanks in ALLLLLLLL by myself with no help from Mom!    My words are in GREEN.

1. I want to make it to a ripe old age like Angel Sammy did.
2. My claws are due for a clipping and I’m not happy about that.
3. A day in my life always includes at least TWO walks outside.

4. Good things happen to those who BEG (haha).
There you have it – another Friday pile of filling in done.    No help from Mom either.

So – what’s with the “MORE” in the title of today’s blog?

Well, Mom and I chuckle along with Evil Squirrel’s blog – those of you who are Teaser Tuesday fans know ES because he has guessed every single Teaser as being one of many quite creative and inventive prisons all around the world.    Yep – his sense of humor has gotten us through some boring Teaser photos in the past AND has also cheered us up when we had NO IDEA where the Teaser photo was taken.    We can always go away from Teaser Tuesday with a grin thanks to Monsieur Squirrel.    ANYWAY, he’s having a contest – we’ve entered before and had an honorable mention (yay Mom).    The contest is totally fun………………and if you’d like to find out what the deal is for this year’s contest, just CLICK HERE.     Who knows – maybe YOU might want to enter.

At any rate, Mom (aka my Graphics Department) said she’d take a whack at it.     Here’s her official entry into the SIXTH ANNUAL CONTEST OF WHATEVER on Evil Squirrel’s blog:

A Squirrel Walks Into A Bar…………

(Evil Squirrel’s Sixth Annual Contest of Whatever – 2019)

Pam Kimmell

“Set ‘em up Joe!” said Freddy as he climbed aboard an empty barstool.   “What a day – I’ve been thinking about this first acorn juice slammer since about lunchtime as I lugged the last leaf up to the nest”.

Joe put Freddy’s drink on the obligatory bar napkin and wiped the bar as was his habit just in case a drop had splashed.   Then he watched Freddy gulp down his slammer with gusto and immediately grabbed the empty knowing another one would be needed.

“Yeah Freddy – you look beat…..this next one is on the house.”

Freddy’s nest had taken the brunt of the high winds moving through and his wife Wilma and their three kids had been complaining about the drafts from the holes in the walls.   Even though there were two frosty feet of snow waiting for him at the bottom of their tree, he’d gone bravely out and gathered the more easily accessible leaves from a neighboring oak and brought them back to plug up the leaks.   When he’d finished, Wilma and the kids gave him a hug of thanks and told him to enjoy seeing his buddies at the bar……but to hurry back home because it was so cold outside.

Just as Freddy picked up his “on the house” drink, the bar – which usually was humming with conversations and laughter among the patrons became quiet.

Freddy saw Joe’s mouth drop open and looked in the mirror behind Joe to see the reflection of the bar entrance wondering what had changed the atmosphere.   Standing there just inside the door was a vision in silver.   She was wrapped up in the luxurious fur of her long silver tail which looked warm and lush.   Her almond shaped eyes scanned the room as if she was looking for a certain lucky someone.

She slowly unwrapped her tail from around her shoulders and sauntered over to the bar, sitting down right next to Freddy like she belonged there.   She leaned close to Freddy and said “Hi handsome……how about buying a gal a drink??”

The bar visitors returned to their conversations and game of pool as they took sideways glances toward Freddy and his guest with envy.

Joe said, “What’ll you have Miss?” and she replied in her sultry voice, “Strawberry Squirrelarita please”…………

Joe put the Strawberry Squirrelarita down in front of the beautiful gray squirrel sitting next to Freddy and wiped the bar down before going to the next customer.

Freddy turned to his drinking companion, raised his glass and said “Wilma, thanks for making me the happiest squirrel in the forest….let’s go home to the kids.”


Ta Da……….the end

We’ll let you know how Mom does or doesn’t do in the contest………….meanwhile, we aren’t sure how many are entering or have entered so far this year.   The entries are always fabulous and Mom never thinks hers are good but who knows…….this could be the year for Squirrelaritas to rule!!!!    GO MOM!

Hugs, Teddy

Do Not Disturb……unless Mom wins of course………….
