Friendly Fill-Ins Week 11

Mauricio asked to do the fill-ins this week as Saturday is a special day for him: He and Allie (Friends Furever) will be married.

1. I wish I could afford to hire someone to fly me to Florida to be with my beloved (soon to be wife) Allie.
2. Zucchini is not something Allie and I will be serving at our wedding reception.
3. One Summertime memory I recall is the riverboat trip Allie and I took with Cat Scouts on August 11, 2014.  (Mau has included a photo from that trip as well as a ballad he wrote for the occasion.  He thought some of you who were not following us then would be interested.)
4. This Summer, (tomorrow to be exact) I am marrying the love of my life, Allie.

This is a blog hop hosted by Mom Ellen from 15AndMeowing and Mom Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. You can enter the hop on Annie’s blog.


Allie Scarlett and MAUverick reminisce prior to their wedding.

The Legend of MAUverick

This is the story of a purrported gunslinger and cardshark, MAUverick, and his beautiful and genteel girlfriend, Allie Scarlett. (She is not related to Austin Scarlett of Project Runway Fame but legend has it that all her gowns were designed by a distant relative named Miss Melanie. They were all hand-sewn by mice seamstresses.)

Getting back on track…legend has it that MAUverick could shoot the center heart out of the Ace of Hearts at a hundred paces. No photographic proof exists, so it remains a legend. All reports say, however, that he never  drew his gun on any human or cat as he was a peace loving man-cat.

Before meeting Allie Scarlett, MAUverick traveled the Mississippi River on the paddle-wheeled boats playing poker and telling stories about his time in the Old West. Rumor abounds that MAUverick used to keep an ace or two up his sleeve, but this has never been proved. And it is known that he was not a cat of great wealth. Any money he won at cards was always donated to a worthy cat shelter of which there were many along the Mississippi.

Once he met the beautiful and charming Miss Allie Scarlett, he gave up his wandering ways. They settled in a modest cottage in New Orleans where they ran a kitty refuge and tended a garden of cat nip in their spare time. They were said to have lived happily ever after, well into old age, never letting a day go by without holding paws and sharing tender kisses.

The End
