Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #105

I am joining hosts Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs) for the weekly Fill-Ins blog hop. Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) usually hosts with Ellen, but she is taking a blogging break, and Lorianne has stepped up to have the hop on her blog. To join in, click on the badge below.


Kitties Blue declined to help with the fill-ins this week, so I have completed them all myself. My completions are in teal italics.

  1. Happiness is a decision we make for ourselves. We cannot depend on someone else to make us happy.
  2. Ten years ago, I‘d never even read a blog.
  3. It may be a cliche, but laughter really is the best medicine, along with hugs.
  4. Most people don’t know that I was a scorekeeper for indoor volleyball at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

We’ll see you all again tomorrow for Caturday Art.

How cool that your Mom was a scorekeeper!! Allie says thank you for the purrs and prayers. She’s in Mom’s lap right now looking for a photo of Mau.

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I knew you were a scorekeeper at The Olympics, that is so cool. Nice photo too. And I completely agree with all your other answers. Have a nice weekend! XO

We agree that happiness is a choice so we choose it often! Our mommy is a hugger and our daddy is funny so they got that one covered too!

I agree about happiness being a choice. Most un-happiness is manufactured in one’s own head. Seeing what you truly have, being satisfied with what you have (even if you desire more), challenging self-limiting beliefs and not sweating the small stuff are all keys to happiness. I bet being part of the Olympics was an amazing experience!

How fun!!! And there was Dad Tom right by your side!


The Menagerie Mom May 18, 2018 at 11:28 am

Thank you for your always fantastic fill-ins! Your #1 could not be more true. I think a lot of people would be happier if they understood that that happiness is something we have to realize and find for ourselves. And I think it is beyond cool that you were a scorekeeper at the Olympics. I’m sure that is a memory you will never forget. Have a fabulous Friday!

A scorekeeper for the Olympics? Wow, I’m impressed. You’re beautiful too.

I love all your answers. Adding the hugs is a nice touch too.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥
