Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #54



Friday already? As you will see from the #4 fill-in, I am already in my “golden years,” and I need time to go by a bit more slowly. I never seem to have enough time to accomplish everything I want. MOUSES!

Anyhoo, I am participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted each week by Ellen (15AndMeowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). This is a blog hop. You can enter by clicking on the above badge.

As always my completions are in teal italics.

Golden Years of Camping with Mau1. My idea of roughing it is a hotel with maid and room service. When I was a kid, we went camping every summer. I never liked getting really dirty or using an outhouse. My parents also sent me to what is commonly referred to as sleep-away camp from second through sixth grade for two-weeks. The camp I attended was part of the Camp Fire Girls organization. When I was at Camp, my mom would “clean” my room and get rid of anything she didn’t feel I needed. It always hurt to come home to find things that were important to me gone. 

At this point in my life I am leaving the camping to Cat Scouts Mau and Cooper Murphy.

2. I never get sick of talking about Kitties Blue. Could there be any other answer? And with eight, the stories never end. That’s the reason I started this blog, and 1,267 posts later, I’m still “talking.”

3. My youth wasn’t always happy, but I am not complaining. My paternal grandparents were wonderful to me. I probably spent more time with them than I did with my parents. They were the only members of my family who gave unconditional love to me. I have written about them in previous posts.

4. My “golden years” are now, as I am officially retired. I do not consider writing The Cat on My Head to be work. 


Golden years or golden furs?
