Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 60



Today is the day each week when we let you know a bit about ourselves by taking part in the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop, created and hosted by Ellen (15AndMeowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). To enter the hop, click on the above badge, and you will be transported to Annie’s blog, where you will be able to enter the link to your post.

I did the filling-in today except for #3, which was completed by Lily Olivia. As usual, our completions are in teal italics.

1. My next post (Caturday Art) will be number 1300.

2. Fireworks are amazing, but it seems with each year I am less impressed by them. The most incredible fireworks I have ever seen were from the pier in St. Thomas.

LILY OLIVIA: 3. This week, I am thankful for being invited to be part of the Crotchety Cougars Club. Other members are Kali (The Canadian Cats), Phoebe (15And Meowing), Madi (Madi and Mom Down Home in NC), Ellie and Allie (Friends Furever) and Binga (SparkleCat). It is a club for lady cats who are at least 15 years old. At 18, I may be the oldest member. 

We ladies will be wearing red hats, and I received mine in the mail yesterday. Mom tried to get some photos of me, but I was my usual uncooperative self. She’d put the hat on me, and I would sit patiently until she was ready to take the photo, then whamo the hat was off. Here are a couple less than fabulous photos. I promise to have better ones to share very soon.


Friendly Fill-Ins


4. Freedom is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel blessed to have been born and live in the United States.

That’s it for us today. Please join us tomorrow for post number 1300!

I apologize for my lateness in responding. Although I read posts last week, with Chloe Jo in the hospital, it has been difficult. As I write this, she is back in the hospital for observation and tests. Thanks for understanding. Hugs.

Lily Olivia, that is a great hat and sounds like a wonderful club to be a part of. 🙂

Congratulations on 1300 posts!

Have a blessed week and a wonderful 4th.

You are awfully beautiful in your red hat, Lily Olivia … though we’re thinking that being 18 should exempt you from certain indignities 🙂

Lily Olivia, you are gorgeous in your red hat!

I LOVE the Crotchety Cougars Club! I love the hat and I almost wish I were old enough to be a member. Mom said she could be but will not ask…not even politely. June 30, 2017 at 11:37 am

Thank you for these fantastic answers to the fill-ins. I think that second photo of you in the hat is perfect, you are a beautiful girl. I know Phoebe is thrilled that you joined. Congratulations on 1300 posts, that is a lot-we will be here tomorrow to celebrate. XO

Mom was pretty amazed that Ellie and Allie cooperated with the hat!
We don’t like the fireworks that people set off in their yards but Mom likes to
watch the Macy’s ones!

Oh the red hat looks beautiful on you Lily Olivia…..Angel Sammy told me that if he was still around he would have started an “Over The Hill Guy Gang” too! haha We are hoping it’s a QUIET 4th of July – my first one so not sure what to expect. Mom and I want to congratulate you on 1300 posts coming up – WOWZERS!

Love, Teddy

LOVE the red hat!!!! If Angel Piper was still with us she would easily have fit
In with your club!!

Pipo/Angel-Minko/MrJackFreckles June 30, 2017 at 2:13 am

You are a sweet heart, Lady Olivia! Crotchety is OK when you are able to be in the Cougar club:)

I giggled a bit at your hat pictures…furry cougar like, MOL!

We here in Michigan have an official spotting of a real cougar, not too far from this den…about 50 miles to the northeast of here. Yikes! Do you think it needs a red hat too??

Summer June 30, 2017 at 1:56 am

I think being difficult about being photographed in the hat is the crotchety part of Crotchety Cougars! You are definitely older than Binga. She will be 17 in a couple of months.

Great fill-ins. Mom says she is not as impressed with fireworks either….so its more noise than anything. I loved your Crotchety Cougar act, Lily Olivia. I know you have a heart of gold just well hidden some days. mol

Kali your cohort.
