We are happy you are here for another week of friendly sharing! As always, you can find the fill-ins here and at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday. On Fridays, we post the linky for sharing. The first two fill-ins are always provided by Ellen. The final two statements are offered by myself. You are welcome to answer in the comments, but if you link up, even more people can share!
Thank you to all who stopped by my “58 Things” post and wishing me a happy birthday. It was nice to have Bill come home, too. He brought flowers and strawberries! It does not take much to make me happy. The little things matter to me.
Bill is winding down his A-Z song posts, too. He has had fun and is glad many of you seemed to, as well. He will finish off commenting this weekend and then do a Reflection post. He would like to thank all who took the A-Z journey with him. I thank you, too.
I am finally getting back into a blogging routine. I am also getting back to answering comments on my blog. When things get hectic, commenting falls through the cracks. Please make sure your email address is linked to your profile. If it is, I can respond to you that way, too. Thank you for visiting and commenting here. It does work two ways!
Enjoy your weekend doing something you love, with your loved ones!
Here are my completed fill-ins:
1. A law I would like to see passed is making a mandatory National Registry for all animal abusers. This is slowly becoming a reality in some areas, in some states. However, it needs to be a National Registry, and it needs to be fully enforced everywhere.
2. My favorite card game is Spades or Gin Rummy. I liked to play Crazy 8 and Go Fish when I was a kid. However, my very favourite card game when I was a kid was Authors. I loved that game and actually wore it out!
3. With Summer unofficially here I wake up at 4:30 AM. The birds all start singing outside my window about that time. Of course, that is Chloe Jo and George’s wake-up call. They start trying to convince me the birds are right: I should be up. Chloe Jo likes to wake me up by repeatedly tapping me on my face. George just dives onto me.
4. A favourite Summer memory is my first camping trip to Galveston. I was 11. I had grown up on the shore of Chicago’s Lake Michigan (1960s). This was a very different kind of beach than that, especially when I found a baby shark! It was dead, but I named it Mack and insisted on burying it. That Summer, I learned many things about nature there, including hermit crabs, jellyfish, Portuguese Man O’War, along with many amazing fish. It is one thing to see these at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago and yet another to actually be at the beach with them!
~Always remember to play nice!~
