Today I am participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins hosted each Friday by Ellen from 15 And Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. I have been wanting to do this for a few weeks but could never think of anything to share for my part of the fill-in.

Some of those who have been doing this have the sentences completed by their furry companion(s), and I may do that in the future as well. However, these are my answers for this week.


Ellen created the first two fill-ins and Annie the last two. My responses are in bold print.

1. The best money I ever spent was for my pool/spa as my 65th birthday present to myselfand the worst was for a perm that had Tom calling me poodle head.

2. My most memorable vacation was with Tom (at) on a riverboat cruise through Russia in 2011.

3. It hurts my heart when I lose a friend, no matter the reason.

Janet & Jellybean-001 - Friendly4. Once, I raised a wild baby bunny after it’s mom was hit and killed by a car. I named it Jelly Bean. When it was old enough we released it on the hill behind our house, which was covered in dense vegetation. We watched him eat his way down the hill.    


This is a blog hop. You can enter your link at McGuffy’s Reader. The link is in the first paragraph.

National Doughnut Day

Held annually on the first Friday of June, Doughnut Day was established by The Salvation Army in 1938. The intention was to honor The Salvation Army’s “Doughnut Lassies,” who served the treats to soldiers during World War I. The “Doughnut Lassies” are often credited with popularizing the doughnut in the United States when the troops returned home from war.
Wishing you a sweet and yummy day.

We didn’t know you raised a wild baby bunny. The head peep raised a wild baby squirrel once. She says it’s rewarding but tough to let them go.

Too bad you couldn’t give your hubby a perm and call him a poodle! Mom said she had one of those poodle perms when she was younger!!

Too bad you couldn’t give your hubby a perm and call him a poodle!!! My mom said she had one of those perms when she was younger too and she says she looked like a poodle, too!

I remember my first and only perm. My friend and I had recently left school and she was at college training to be a hairdresser. She asked if she could perm my hair and like a fool I said yes. It must have been the tightest curliest perm ever and it took forever to loosen up.

Poodle head? He’s very, very brave! 🙂 We enjoyed your answers though! Our friend the Carrot Lady has a garden full of wild bunnies but she’s never touched one. Their videos and pictures are on her FB page under Mister the Bunny!

Love the answer about the perm…I call that look frizzhead…and I used to have a lot of those times, MOL! But no longer…my head sports straight spiderweb thin hair…but its harder to keep looking good than the permed curls after they calmed down…sigh…

I would love to take a river cruise down the mighty Danube, through all the countries it traverses.

I was hoping you’d do the fill-ins! It’s so fun to get to know everyone with this challenge. Your answers are great! I got a perm once as a kid, and I’ll certainly never do it again. And I couldn’t agree with you more on #3 – losing a friend, whether furry or human, is heartbreaking. Purrs to you and all the Kitties Blue!

Oooooh! Perms! Ick! I can understand why that was the worst $ … I’d forgotten that horrible experience! The least bit of humidity & my hair stood on end and smelled horrid!!!!
Jelly Bean looks adorable – congratulations on successfully raising her.
That cruise sounds great.

Ellen Pilch June 3, 2016 at 9:14 am

Thank you for participating in the friendly fill-ins, I enjoyed your answers. That is great that you were able to care for the baby bunny, I have heard they rarely survive without their moms. I like all the photos you added too and that pool/spa sounds incredible.

What is it with the guys calling our perms Poodle Heads? Mine did it to me too!

Sammy June 3, 2016 at 4:44 am

YAY! You’re a Friday “Filler-Inner” too! Love your answers……guess what – my Mom had a perm once MANY YEARS AGO and her husband also called her Poodle Head…..she never had another perm! Have a Happy Friday and good weekend…..

Love, Sammy

Oh, my goodness! I am happy you joined us! Your #1 was priceless. Good for you. Shame on Tom! I want to take a Mississippi River cruise. My sister in law and her husband took a European river cruise last year. Losing a loved is hard; period. Wild baby bunnies are precious. It is hard to not get attached. Thank you for being part of Friendly Fill-Is. Hugs. ❤
