Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday

Standard

Friday is here which means – yep – it’s time to FILL-IN!    Our co-hosts, 15andMeowing and Four-Legged Furballs host this SUPER FUN Hop every week. How does it work?  Each of our co-hosts give us two sentences – and we fill in the blanks.  Easy right?    Wanna join in?    Click the badge above and link up.

Here are this week’s sentences with blanks and I’m letting my Mom fill everything in this week – isn’t that nice of me?   Yeah I thought so too!!!!!

Take it away Mom!   (in RED)

 

1. I admire ANYONE who fosters or volunteers for shelters.

2. I can’t wait for anything to bloom.   (Note: I am so tired of drab days, rain, snow, and bare trees……I’m READY for anything to bloom because it will feel like things are “renewing” again!)

3. I’m proud to say I’m a published author and when I used to paint, I sold a lot of my work; I feel like I was able to use the talents God blessed me with in some small way.
4. Public speaking make(s) me nervous.
Thanks Mom……..good job.    Maybe I’ll let you do it again next week……………..now don’t get too excited – – – I said MAYBE!    Tee Hee

Yesterday it rained ALL DAY…..which made it a great day for……..

Friendly Fill-Ins

Hello Hoppers – Happy Friday!    Time for us to fill in some blanks……………….provided by our co-hostesses, Ellen and Lorianne.   If you’d like to have fun with us, click the badge above and link up.   Share!

Here are today’s sentences………..two from each blog above.    I decided after thinking about the sentences this week that my Mom would be better suited to answering than I would.   SO, the fill-ins are hers and they are in RED!

1. I could live on a canal or houseboat.
2. I rarely get sick, but when I do, I get rather grumpy but just push through it and keep on going.
3. I would most like to be known for being a good sounding board and helping people get through their problems.
4. If you want love, you have to be lovable (!) and return the favor.

My Mom said #1 was easy to answer because she has loved the whole idea of living on the water since she and my Dad travel a lot – have seen canal boats and houseboats and think it would be fun to have one.    Maybe not necessarily as a full-time residence but a second residence perhaps.    Anyway, I think that would be fun too………..I’d have to wear a life jacket but they make them for pets!    Wheeee!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go ask my Dad if he’ll take me outside on my harness/leash.    We have a very pretty day – in the 50s with lots of sun – and I feel the need to stretch my little legs – not to mention getting some fresh air!

 

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Spring is coming!!   YAY!    Hugs, Teddy

Friendly Friday Filling In

Standard

Oh boy!   Time to fill in the blanks again……….I can’t believe another week has passed since I filled blanks in but it has.    I let Mom do the filling in last week and I might do them this week or maybe “share” with Mom.     Anyway, if you’d like to have some fun filling in the sentences our co-hosts (15andMeowing and Four-Legged Furballs) give us every week, please do.   Just click on the badge above and link up with us.    It’s a fun way to share information about ourselves.

Here are this week’s sentences and I decided Mom and I will share………Mom’s BLUE and I’m RED.

1. I am always happy – my Mom and Dad like that about me (!).

2. I brake for red lights, animals, roadblocks and any other thing that I don’t want to run into or over!

3. I’d be lying if I said my life isn’t perfect cuz it is!
4. The one who doesn’t panic wins the race.

There you have it!  Another pile of filling in done by me and my Mom!    We both hope you have a great weekend……….Here’s something to make you giggle……..my Mom and I just love this!!!  Hope you do too……………

Tee Hee……………..

I’m sleeping until it gets warm…………..DO NOT DISTURB………….

Love, Teddy

Friday is here and so is the Fill-In Hop!     If you want to fill in some sentences and have some fun with us – just click the badge above and GO FOR IT!   Every Friday each of our co-hosts gives us two sentences with blanks in fun spots and we fill in the blanks however we want to.    It’s always interesting to read everyone else’s fill-ins.

Here’s this week’s sentences…………..this week I decided to let my Mom have the honors and her fill-ins are in BLUE!

1. My favorite kind of music is NOT LOUD.

2. I don’t believe  in going to bed angry.

3. My ideal day begins at 3:30AM with Teddy – that’s his “play time” and our alone time before his Dad gets up.
4. Don’t let fear of aging stop you from staying YOUNG AT HEART!
Thanks Mom!  I knew you’d do a good job with these – I kinda thought the sentences were more for people to answer than ME doing it this week.
I agree with Mom’s #2 – do I look angry?   HECK NO!!!   I look SLEEPY!

Love, Teddy

Friday!   Time to fill in some blanks…………blanks?  Yes – sentences with “holes” left for us to fill in with our thoughts and ideas………..courtesy of our two hosts for the fun Hop.   If you click the badge above, you will go to one of our hosts – 15andmeowing – and you can link up and join in the “fill in the blanks” fun!!    I thought I’d share today – let my Mom do a couple of sentences and I’ll do the other couple.   Mom’s words are in RED and mine are in GREEN.

Here are this week’s sentences – two from each of our co-hosts:

1. I believe in the power of positive thinking.
2. I need to go Marie Kondo* on my toy box – it’s a mess – lots of old toys that are falling apart – most I inherited from Sammy so they are 18 years old!

3. It does no good to worry – after all – “it might not happen!”.

4. I find manipulating my Mom to be a walk in the park.
There you have it – the good, the bad, and the ugly from me and my Mom for this week.    HAHAHA
We had some “good, bad, and ugly” this week in fact in the form of weather………………….yesterday we had THREE BAD cold and icy inches of snow/sleet and today all the UGLY is melting away which is GOOD!    I bet I can go outside today for a walk finally.    I can’t WAIT for Spring!
Have a great Friday everybody……………..
Mom ordered some stairs to put at the side of the bathroom cabinet – maybe she’s tired of lifting a 22 lb. cat up to the sink for a drink?   

 Love, Teddy

This week’s sentences are below and I’m filling them in MYSELF again!   My fill-ins are in BLUE.

2. My harness goes on before I’m allowed to go for a walk with Mom or Dad (or both!).
3. My quiet MEOW with a head bonk is my preferred method of communication.

Friendly Fill-Ins…..and MORE

Standard

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………….

Happy Friday!

Friends I have a favor to ask…..would you please say a prayer for my little friend Sawyer Blue?   He’s one of the Kitties Blue at THE CAT ON MY HEAD blog and as most of you know, he has a seizure disorder.    He had a very very bad seizure early Friday morning and is at the emergency vet.   Please pray that he will be alright…..Thank you.    CLICK HERE to visit their blog.

FRIDAY!!!!  YAY!!!!   Well, my Mom says she can truly remember when she felt like that anyway about Fridays back when she was working.   Friday was the BEST DAY EVER.    Now it’s “housecleaning day” which is still a good day because Mom gets help from Dad for this little chore.   I say little but in a three story house there’s a lot to clean and it’s SWELL of my Dad to pitch in!

So, here we are again – this is a great Hop that’s co-hosted by Four-Legged Furballs and 15andmeowing and the badge above will take you to 15andmeowing where you can link up for the Hop and share your FILL-INS.    Filling in sentences with blanks is a totally painless way to find out more stuff about your friends…….AND it’s fun!

Here are this week’s sentences and Mom and I kind of traded off filling in the blanks…….MY fill-ins are in RED and Mom’s are in GREEN.

 

1. Better to be quiet when asked a question you really do NOT have the answer to than give someone incorrect information.
2. Don’t pet me just because you think you “should” – I’d rather that you pet me because you WANT to!.
3. You couldn’t pay me to go back to working full-time.    (Note:  Don’t get me wrong – I loved working MOST of the jobs I had in my working life but I still prefer choosing what to do with my days now I’m retired!!)
4. “Delectables Squeeze-Ups”  is (are!) my comfort food.    MY MOST FAVORITE TREAT!!!
There you have it – some more exciting information about me and my Mom.   Well, maybe not EXCITING but perhaps interesting????     At any rate, be sure to join the Hop and check out everyone else’s FILL-INS!!

Happy Friday!   Teddy
