The Real Cats celebrate Cinco de Mayo

Friendly Fill-Ins

Friendly Fill-Ins badge
And now it’s time for Friendly Fill-Ins, from 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader. They are a fun way to learn a little bit about the authors of the blogs you read. The first two questions, answered by old SoLT this week,  are from Ellen of 15andmeowing, and the next two, answered by Real Cat Paisley,  are from Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.

Old SoLT’s answers
1. Remember when all anyone had was a landline, and we couldn’t imagine anything else? Once upon a time, we didn't all have panic attacks when we realized we'd left the house without our phone!

2. My most treasured piece of jewelry is … Mmm … well, I do have some jewelry that I enjoy and would be sad to lose, but I wouldn’t call any of it “treasured”—no family heirlooms or anything.

Real Cat Paisley’s answers
3. This year, I have learned a whole bunch of new ways to scare the dog.

4. I would like to further expand my dog-scaring repertoire before this year is over.


  1. Happy Cinco de Mayo to you too. Good for you to keep the dog under control. Have a good day.

  2. "SINKO my teeth into de MAYO" HILARIOUS!!! Love it!!! catchatwithcarenandcody

  3. Great answers from you both. Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope you get to sink your teeth into the dog, I mean some mayo :)

  4. MOL! Great fill-ins! We won't say anything about our Mom and Dad who still only have a landline... Have a good weekend!

  5. Scaring the dog -- is that fair? You are already so superior to the dog anyway!

  6. Oh, Paisley ... you are one HOT TAMALE of a tortie! Ole ;)

  7. That's fantastic! I love your take on the holiday, you crazy party animals!

  8. Paisley, how fun that must be for you. Best wishes as you learn more way to do that!

    I love your answer to number one. Some folks have a major freak attack if they leave the house without their phone. It is like their phones contain their heartbeats and breath. We sure would have had to have a very long cord if we were going to take our phones off with us back then. :)

    Have a blessed weekend!

  9. We used to have a customer who was always on the cell phone. I joked with him that he was probably listening to someone saying, "breathe in, breathe out." He thought it was funny.

  10. Really great answers. Thank you for the smiles here. Hugs. Annie at ~McGuffy's Reader~
