Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #66


It’s time for Friendly Fill-Ins again. The weeks just keep speeding by like a runaway train. I’m afraid to blink for fear when I open my eyes, it will be Christmas.

This is a blog hop hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Each select two incomplete sentences, and participants fill-in the blanks. It’s a terrific way to get to know your fellow bloggers. To join the blog hop, click on the Fill-Ins badge.

I found this week’s sentences to be particularly challenging. Sometimes one or more of Kitties Blue will do the fill-ins, but I have done them all this week. My completions are in teal italics.

1. Blind dates led to the marriage of Astrid to Sampson (Kitty Cat Chronicles). It all started with my post, Match.Cat, on January 30, 2014. All the girls were looking for dates for the upcoming Valentine’s Day Dance, so I posted their bios on-line with the hope of getting dates for them. (Mau didn’t need to advertise. He and Allie already were boyfriend and girlfriend.)

Here are Astrid and Sampson on that first blind date.


Blind date led to marriage.


2.  Twenty-one years ago, I was a scorekeeper for indoor volleyball at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Dad Tom was a referee.




3. I admire Kevin (meowmeowmans) and Tracey Hatori (Animal Shelter Volunteer Lifewho give so generously of their time as volunteers at PAWS of Connecticut because the job requires more than just playing with kittens. Not all animals in shelters are friendly and loving nor are all jobs fun; cages and litter boxes require cleaning after all. I know Kevin and Tracey would agree the thanks that come in the way of head butts, kisses, purrs and kneading make it all worthwhile.

4. When I see the divorce rate, it makes me think how fortunate I am to have a great husband and to have been married for 44 years.

See you tomorrow for Caturday Art and then it is time for selfies again.
