Demo (Feline Friday) and Friendly Fill-Ins


Feline Friday was started by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.

He has handed hosting duties off to Sandee, of Comedy Plus, and it's simple to join, just follow the link to Sandee's page for the rules and the code.

Sally is demonstrating how to rest and eat at the same time.


Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by Ellen of 15AndMeowing, and the final two are offered by Lorianne The Menagerie Mom of Four-Legged Furballs. They try to make sure the statements will be fun to both answer and share. The linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM on Friday. Please head over to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!      

Here are this week's statements with my responses underlined:

1. I feel _______________ when I ____________________.

2. I wish I could erase ______________from my memory to free up some space.

3. Others probably find it annoying that I _________.

4. _________ really needs to be invented.

1. I feel   tired  when I   get home from work.

2. I wish I could erase   old passwords  from my memory to free up some space   for the new passwords that i can't recall because the old get in the way.

4. A better means of transport than something that burns fossil fuels and has rubber tires  really needs to be invented.
