Happy Black Cat Holiday!

Happy Friday the 13th to all the kitties and the humans brave enough to embrace rather than fear black acts and the number 13! It makes me sad that black cats are hard to place shelter cats. They say it’s because people think they’re “bad luck.” Really? In 2015? It’s just amazing that will all the very real bad things in our world people still fall for unsubstantiated superstitions with archaic roots and take out their gullible fear-attitudes on innocent animals. We celebrate Friday the 13th as a cat-holiday and have adopted the American St Patrick’s Day attitude for it – “Pet me, I’m a black cat” and every cat is a black cat on Friday the 13th!

Please feel free to right click and save the graphic I made for the holiday and share it on your blog or social media sites too. Make Friday the 13th a fun day; catnip for everyone! (and something with milk, like chocolate or ice cream if you don’t do nip.)

Now I’m joining Heather at Feeling Beachie for Follow Friday Four Fill In Blog Hop. This is a meme I haven’t done in a while, but I really enjoy! Stop over to Feeling Beachie to join the fun!

The statements:
1. The worst ____________ is _______________
2. I would rather____________________ than _____________
3. I can ________ but I wish I could ________
4. The song ________________ evokes memories of _______________

My Answers:
1. The worst thing about autumn is winter is the next season.
2. I would rather sit at a ballpark in a rain delay than watch a parade in the snow.
3. I can spin in circles at the mall in my power chair like a tilt-a-whirl but I wish I could still climb into a real Tilt-A-Whirl at a carnival. (That one was too easy, huh?)
4. The song Mess Is Mine by Vance Joy, my current favorite, evokes memories of how wonderful David is and how lucky I am.

I leave you with my signature for Ginger Snaps this month. The challenge was lots of green in your siggie. I got that, but NO green shamrocks! My green eyes and summer freckles are courtesy of the orange part of the flag! My mom used to tell me that it irritated my great grandfather when she wore green to school on St. Patrick ’s Day because her Irish heritage was orange not green. So while I do wear green too, I’ve always made sure to rock a little orange on that Irish holiday in memory of Dad-dad.

And tomorrow, 3/14/15 is Epic Pi day! Only happens once every 100 years.

Today in school Katie's class had a Pi contest. The winner got to throw a cream pie in the face of the school principle. The winner was able to recite Pi to 66 places. Katie was second runner up at 47 places. Her reward was a twinky.

I think I'm going to celebrate by purchasing a cherry pie.

Enjoyed reading your answers. Love your answer to #2 and I have always been a huge fan of the Tilt-A-Whirl. Hope your weekend is going well.

I totally agree with autumn. I hate it only because I know that winter will soon follow!

I thoroughly agree about black cats. I think they are beautiful. One of the cats that adopted us is all black. He's big and beautiful and such a love.

I loved your answer about the tilt a whirl. I would have to put in "walking". I always loved walking, but the body doesn't like it now.

As for that song, I don't know it so I will look it up on Google. The title sounds quite interesting.

I'm finally getting caught up on my blog reading now. Nani girl, you have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
