Another Sad Farewell

I will be participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins today, but first the kitties and I are saddened to have lost another dear friend and “family” member. The beautiful Ellie from Friends Furever received her angel wings yesterday morning. Ellie is Mau’s wife Allie’s sisfur. She’s been having health issues for the past couple of weeks. We will be dedicating our Sunday Selfies blog hop to her. If you can, please stop by the Friends Furever blog and leave your condolences for Mom Sharon, Dad Bill and fursibs, Allie and Raz.


Angel Ellie


Rest in peace, beautiful angel. You will be forever loved and cherished and remain in all of our hearts.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #61


As promised, I am completing this week’s fill-ins provided by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) and participating in their blog hop as well. To join the hop, click on the badge above to be taken to Annie’s blog.

As always, my completions are in teal italics.

1. My favorite line(s) from a film is are from two different movies. I cannot select one of these above the other. The first selection is actually a bit of dialog from the 1969 movie, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” The two characters (played by Paul Newman and Robert Redford) are standing atop a cliff when this takes place.

Butch Cassidy: Alright. I’ll jump first.

Sundance Kid: No.

Butch Cassidy: Then you jump first.

Sundance Kid: No, I said.

Butch Cassidy: What’s the matter with you?

Sundance Kid: I can’t swim.

Butch Cassidy: Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill you.

Sundance Kid: Oh, shit… (and they jump).

The following line is from the 1977 movie, “The Goodbye Girl,” starring Marsha Mason and Richard Dreyfus. The character Elliot is drunk after reading the reviews of his portrayal of Richard III off-off broadway.

Elliot Garfield: I was “an Elizabethan fruit fly.” I was “the Betty Boop of Stratford-on-Avon.” I was “putrid.” Capital P, capital U, capital TRID.

If you have never seen either of these movies, rent them. They are both worth your time. I’ve seen “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” more than two dozen times. Eighteen of those were at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California, where I worked as a cashier when I was in college.

2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is piZap. I use this app for all types of photo-editing, including creating Caturday Art and dressing Mau, Cooper Murphy and Allie for Cat Scout events. Here is Cooper Murphy dressed for the Cat Scouts birthday pool party this weekend. He’s practicing the hula, as he plans to give lessens during the party.

3. When I feel down, I mope. I am not someone who takes comfort in food, but if I am really, really, really down in the dumps, dark chocolate, peanut M&Ms might take my mind off of whatever is bothering me.

4. If I could find the money, I would open a shelter for black cats. Of course, all cats would be welcome.

That’s it for today. We’ll see you tomorrow for Caturday Art and the following day for week #152 of SundaySelfies.
