Feline Friday and Fill-Ins Plus More

When I wrote about National Cherry Month, Myra said when she was a kid she gorged herself on cherries and to this day she can't eat them!My auntie Ang told me when she was a young girl, about 8 or 9 years old, the produce truck couldn't make it up this steep hill and bunches of bananas rolled off that truck. She said there were a bunch of kids and they were grabbing all those bananas. She told me she got so sick from eating all those bananas that until the day she passed away she never touched another banana! She came from a huge phamily so knowing that, I think they were so excited to have all that beautiful golden fruit!
When I was working the Mountain Man lady use to come around twice a month. She had Jordan almonds on sale and I bought a bag. Problem was, I could not stop eating them! I ate them until I was literally sick to my stomach and they gave me chest pains! I Know, what a weirdo I was! I had candy for Rebekah and Zach's wedding. I purchased some Jordan almonds. But I seriously could not enjoy them like I once did.
In the 1960's when I was a youngster, if you went to an Italian wedding, they threw Jordan almonds at the bride and groom. As a kid, I thought what a waste not to mention you could put someone's eye out tossing a handful at a bride and groom! Rice was the normal thing to toss at weddings until someone realized the danger of raw rice to birds! I see some throw birdseed today, but do you really want to revisit the Alfred Hitchcock thrilled "The Birds" starring Tippi Hedren on your wedding day? I don't think so!  N O P E !
These are too funny so I Had to share them with Feline Friday
This one cracks me up!
This is a typical girl thing!
I love the black and white cats. My boy Boots was mostly black but he was so perfect with his white markings.
Oh my goodness I can hardly remember that he was so small. Rebekah use to pose him with Hannah and I need to find those photos. He loved to pose and would do anything you asked him to. He was a one in a million. In fact, I still think perhaps he was just an angel disguised as a feline.
I will miss him forever. His eyes were beautiful.

Friendly Fill-Ins

Each  week Ellen and Four-Legged Furballs Lorianne provide these questions. If you need any help please contact them. Ellen came up with the first two questions and Lorianne the second two.

1) I wish I could tell my teenage self ____________.

2)  I think the most romantic movie is____________.

3) __________was the last time I ____________.

4) ____________happens too often.

Here are my answers:

1) I wish I could tell my teenage self to listen more closely to my folks.

2) I think the most romantic movie is The Notebook, Pretty woman and Love actually.

3) This morning was the last time I cooked.

4) Snow happens too often.

Valentine's Day is near. Here is a quick and easy parfait. If you want the recipe you can just slice strawberries and layer them with real whipped cream that you whip with a tablespoon of powdered sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla I love real whip cream. I have seen a similar parfait with crumbled oreo cookies added too. I crack up reading social media posts at times. Women who swear they fed their phamily healthy food use Cool Whip. Made from petroleum by-products. Y U C K !

Stop by Pink Saturday and enjoy the weekend.

I think we all overate something in our youth. Mine was hard boiled eggs on Easter. I was so sick. So sick.

I love all the kitties and your fill-ins. How fun.

I don't do cool whip either. Good for us. Okay, I'm not a fan of whipped cream either.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug, honey. ♥

My first thought was how dangerous to throw Jordan Almonds- they are big. My hubby loves them, but chipped a tooth on them twice so he gave them up. Boots was a handsome boy. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I icked The Notebook too :) We have been lucky in Massachusetts without much snow this winter. Have a nice weekend. XO

Oooh, that's funny about the banana overdose! What a shame fresh fruit had to take the hit instead of something like chocolate. (LOL) That's interesting about the Jordan almonds; I've only tasted them once or twice. Is that Hannah with little Boots? Sweet! I forgot about Friday fill-ins. My vote for 'most romantic' would be Bridges of Madison County.

Boots really was a serious cutie. We enjoyed your fill in answers too. Guess what, the Dad used to eat so many bananas now he can't eat them without getting sick, yuck!

I love bananas but I don't eat them once they start to ripen. I tried to download that recipe, but there was no way to find it. Sorry, it looked delicious. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
