RANDOM THINGS with Feline Friday, Friendly Friday Fill In's and Pink Saturday


I will always love baseball. 

I did share a Wordless Wednesday photo of the Atlanta Braves stadium I found at Pinterest. It was in the glory days of baseball before all these restrictions. 

It is hard to be true to our Colorado Rockies when their greedy owners and management sell off players. We will be following the St. Louis Cardinals as well since they gave Noland Arenado our third baseball to them, We still love Charlie Blackmon and  Trevor Story but we know Trevor's days are numbers. It is a sad business buying and selling people like chattel.

Ellen and Lorianne  co host the Friendly Fill In;s. They each select two questions. Here they are:

1. I never have time to finish ___________.

2. My _________can __________.

3. __________is a cause that is dear to my heart.

4. At this very moment, I ____________.

Here are my answers:

1. I never have time to finish reading all the books I have stacked up.

2. My grandkids can never be naughty or ornery, they are too adorable.

3. Ronald McDonald House is a cause that is dear to my heart.

4. At this very moment, I was watching Leave it to Beaver reruns with my honey on T.V.

Have you ever had a Black and White soda? I miss the days of drugstore counters that served up different sodas. Here is the recipe for this one:

5 ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Chocolate syrup
Baking & Spices
  • 1 can Whipped cream in
  • 4 cups Carbonated water
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 2/3 cups 8 scoops chocolate ice cream

When I get to have this fun drink I like to use Pepsi products and Club Soda. There are a variety of ways to make this yummy treat. The ingredients in the recipe here will serve 4 people. I would love to find some vintage soda glasses. I probably have some in my Princess House collection. They use to make the best hand blown glassware. I sure miss those days.

This is an older photo of my ornery boy Mister Kitty. But he was so sweet and content here. He is very photogenic, he is just hard to catch and capture. Please visit Feline Friday

Here is a Pink Drink to celebrate Pink Saturday Coconut milk and White CranStrawberry with fresh berries to share with a pink drink loving friend or phamily.


7 ingredients

  • 3 cup Ocean spray white cranberry strawberry, Juice
  • 3 Strawberries, large
Canned Goods
  • 1 cups Silk original coconut milk or silk unsweetened almond/coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup Simple syrup

I think one cup of sugar is way too much to add to this drink. I would add it only to taste.  The recipe may be off as I know simple sryup is one cup of water and one cup of sugar. The
berries will give it the flavor with the Coconut milk.  You can always add Whipped Cream.

Sweet Dreams to all and enjoy a wonderful weekend. 
Baking & Spices
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 Ice cubes
  • 1 cup Water

I have had Black & White soda, and I have a big tray of Black & White cookies in the kitchen now. Mister Kitty is beautiful, and looks like our Simba.

The black and white soda looks so good!
Mister Kitty is a handsome boy.

Lots of fun things here today! We haven't watched baseball in a long, long time. We enjoyed your fill in answers and we enjoyed seeing Mr. Kitty!

Great Friday Fill-in's! I'd never be able to answer #1 with a straight face. Since retiring, I've plenty of time - but little to no discipline. Need Larry the Cable Guy standing behind me saying, "Get R Done!"

I've never had a black-and-white soda, but will never forget the time my father took me to a Denver soda bar and introduced me to something called a Brown Cow.

Your Mr. Kitty was very handsome.
