Friendly Fill-Ins

Annie in black and white

Today we are joining the Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop. It's all about learning about each other and making friends! Thank you to our hosts, 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.

1. A law I would like to see passed is no dumping/abandoning pets. Also, it would be great to see declawing outlawed in all states.

2. My favorite card game is Kings in the Corner or Gin Rummy. It's been a long time since I've played either of these. When I was young, I played these two with my grandmother. As a matter of fact, she taught them to me. My other grandmother taught me a few variations of Solitaire, which were fun.

3. With summer unofficially here, Annie and Pierrot are enjoying spending more time on our balcony.

4. A favorite summer memory is going to San Diego with my parents. I grew up in Southern California, so a trip to San Diego was less than two hours away, but we'd spend several days there going to the beach, renting sail boats, going to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. At home, I enjoyed going to the library and checking out lots of books, namely Nancy Drew.


  1. wavez two ewe annie N food servizz gurl loved nancy drew two; in fact, just coz her could, her ree cent lee re red de furst five storeez.....good times; good memoreez !!! hope ya get lotz oh paddy oh weatherz this summer !!! heerz two a driftwood catfish kinda week o end ~ ♥♥

  2. Annie's gorgeous in any color! I totally agree with number 1 ... I hadn't thought of the abandonment issue ... I only came up with being tougher on animal abuse, banning declawing, and requiring TNR and not extermination of ferals. The abandonment issue a huge one though - so many people think cats can fend for themselves outside!

  3. We are all in favor of #1, both of them!

  4. I agree with you on declawing. Our vets don't do it anymore. A lot of vets around here stopped. It is just unsettling to think about that. I have been to San Diego and loved it. I got to see the Panda babies at the Zoo, too! Annie is beautiful. HUGS.

  5. There are many, many animals that get dumped at our daughter's school It is a major veterinary school and people seem to think nothing of dumping animals there. Have a great week.

  6. We would love to see a law passed like that! The mom visited San Diego many years ago and loved it. She would like to go back someday.

  7. Thank you for these great answers to the fill-ins. I completely agree with your laws. Summers in San Diego sound amazing. Have a nice weekend! XO

  8. I read the Nancy Drew books, and the Hardy Boys books, when I was a kid, too. It sounds like you had lots of fun in San Diego. Have you been to Balboa Park? I've seen pictures and heard lots about it. It sounds like an awesome place.

    My granny taught me to play Solitaire. I really enjoy it. I played board games with my grandma and we also watched Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune together. She always knew the answers. :) I don't think I've ever heard of Kings in the Corner. I'll have to look that up.

    I agree with your #1.

    Have a blessed weekend. :)
