Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 38
1. I have seen They’re Playing Our Song with Lucie Arnaz and Robert Klein on Broadway in 1979. I have seen local productions of other “Broadway” shows.
2. My Chinese zodiac sign is the OX. Several web-sites list things like lucky and unlucky numbers and colors and personality traits for each sign. Like anything that is subjective, these things change depending on the web-site. One site said one of my lucky colors is blue, whereas another said blue is unlucky for me. Both are true. It has to be lucky for me as I have been married to the kitties’ dad, Tom Blue, for 44 years. On the unlucky side, I have owned a few blue cars: one was a lemon and was replaced by the dealer and the others were involved in accidents.
I’ve always wanted to have a cute sign, like a rabbit. I did manage to find a cute cartoon ox to share. And I have to admit that being the sign of the ox is probably appropriate. Most people think of oxen as stubborn. Individuals who know me well, know I am stubborn; though, I prefer to think of myself as tenacious.
3. Most celebrities are very generous with their wealth, but some drive me crazy with their huge egos and ridiculous antics. This fill-in finally gives me the opportunity to tell everyone about what happened at the Rick Springfield/Richard Marx concert we attended last weekend. The two did a few songs together and then each did a one-hour set. During Springfield’s he jumped off the stage and headed into the audience. We were in the eighth row, and I was sitting on the aisle. I got a hug from Rick Springfield. Being as he is my age but still a heart-throb, it made my night (and year)!
4. A day is an opportunity to learn new things, make new friends and do something nice for another person, animal or organization.
This a blog hop hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). To take part in the hop, complete the fill-ins and then link up on Annie’s blog by clicking on the bedge. My completions are in teal italics.
As this is a cat blog, I didn’t feel I could post without sharing at least one kitty picture. So, here’s another squeeable photo of the new kid. So sorry, it is blurry. Cooper Murphy wanted to don some oxen horns for this post, but he was just too darn cute to pull it off.
Same sign as my mother, Ox too. She’s a loving and caring mother to us but she get annoyed easily, huh.
Our pawrents are both horses…maybe that’s why we do well reading your blog…Oxen and horses sometimes have to work together..well in ‘olden times’ they did, MOL!!
Yup, Cooper M *is* cute!
Those were such great answers, Janet! My sign is the ram/sheep, which is supposed to be gentle and calm (generally true). That’s cool that you got a hug from Rick Springfield. He always comes across as a nice guy in interviews. Sounds like that is really the case! 🙂
Your answers were terrific, especially 3 and 4!
Coop you are so adorable!
What fun responses to the fill ins! And how cool that you got a hug from Rick Springfield. He still looks great! ~Island Cat Mom
Hmm, I have no idea what my sign is. But some of that stuff is such fun to read. I’m down on Hollywood at the moment. I only want to see the actors act (at least those who can). Nuff said on that. Anyhoo, Cooper is absolutely adorable in that picture!
I’m not sure what my sign is. It should be a cat though.
Amazing ! Did you know that Claire’s Chinese zodiac sign is the Ox too ? Cooper Murphy is so cute ! Purrs
Thanks for joining us. I love your answers, too! Lucky you, getting that concert hug! Of course, Blue is so “You”! That picture of Cooper is charming. He & George would have fun together. I am so glad he found you! HUGS! Much Love!!
Keep those photos of Cooper Murphy coming! what a cutie!
Sounds like guys had a great time at the concert last weekend! I must admit that the only Rick Springfield song I know is Jessie’s girl, because it was in one of my favorite movies – 13 Going on 30. As for Broadway shows, I have seen Mary Poppins on Broadway, and I also got to sit in the pit orchestra for the Broadway show Promises, Promises as part of a percussion summit I attended in NYC a few years back. It was awesome!!! Also, my Chinese zodiac sign is the dragon, which I’ve always thought was pretty cool!
Sampy sends his love to Astrid, and we all send hugs and love! Oh, and Sampy says that Astrid may want to check out our blog today, as he is being featured. He asks that she not be disappointed in him though.
