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.

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.

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.
