After visiting his special lady friends, Paul stretched out on his bed for an afternoon nap. It took a lot of work to be a proper gentleman in The Superior Retirement Home where he now lived.

As the day nurse came into the room with his afternoon medications, they exchanged knowing grins. Winking, she said to Paul, “You wouldn’t be so tired if you didn’t chase all of the lovely ladies here, Paul.”

Paul sighed, responding, “Oh, if I had my druthers, they would be chasing me.”

Aye, Aye, Skipper

Among my favourite butterflies are Skippers.

This Silver-Spotted Skipper was as curious 
about me as I was about him.

He actually seemed to watch me watch him.

His favourite place to dine was my last Zinnia, 

then he was off to enjoy the last of Autumn's warmth.

Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 23

Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins"! You can find the fill-in statements here or at each Thursday. The first two fill-ins are provided by my friend and co-host, Ellen. The final two statements are suggested by myself. We post a link so that we can all share the completed fill-ins.

We thank you for joining us each week. Your participation is very important. Sharing with you and getting to know you better through your answers is what it is all about. Please remember to visit everyone on the list. 

Here are my completed fill-ins for this week:

1. It is good to have a spare container of pet food. However, it crossed my mind to say a roll of toilet paper. When Chloe Jo was a kitten, she was obsessed with unrolling and destroying every roll of toilet paper she encountered. Then, she had so much fun teaching George to do the same. I actually caught them together more than once.

2. I don't understand why zombies are so popular. I just do not, for the life of me (literally), understand the attraction to anything like that. I am not a fan of horror, but this one is beyond me. For me, it is not about fear. It is about not wanting things of a negative nature in my life. Life is difficult and scary enough. Just sayin'

3. The spookiest thing that ever happened to me was admitting the intuitive feelings that I often get about situations, people, or places. When I do, I am inevitably correct. I keep these things to myself (or a select few) more often than not. However, if I feel it is a dangerous or important situation, I will voice my thoughts and concerns.

4. My favourite Halloween tale is “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” or “Young Frankenstein”. As I said, I am not a fan of the horror genre…at all.

~Choose your scary fun wisely this Halloween!~
