Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Friday Fill-ins



This week, I took the first sentence in 6 of my favorite fill them in...with the right words or even better, ones of your own. (- from our host Janet.)

1. "In a hole in the ground there lived the gopher from Caddy Shack!"

2. "The gophers are moving into the house but that ain't no matter."

3. "After dark the rain began to fall again, and flooded out the gophers."

4. "I wasn't told about the mold from the hold of the Spanish galleon."

5. "There was a hand in the darkness, and it was fumbling for the light switch and the Tums on the night stand (tacos for dinner)."

6. "Accidents ambush the unsuspecting, and those without auto insurance."

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to my son's baseball game, tomorrow my plans include helping my grandma clean her house and Sunday, I want to do nothing!

(Can you tell I'm a little squirrely? It's 5:00 A.M. and I haven't gone to bed yet, for about the 20th night in a row. My brain isn't functioning so well. )


  1. I really must to a friday fill-in one day :D

  2. Lol, hilarious! I might have to try a Friday Fill-in one of these days!

    I also wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for an award.

  3. ooo Gophers how funny, shame you couldnt work them into every line.

    How on earth are you still upright let alone able to type after so long with out sleep. I start to get cranky if I only get 5 hours sleep and it all goes down hill from there really.

  4. 5am and no sleep?? Yikes! Hope you're peacefully asleep now!

  5. I like #6, and LOVE the gopher theme!

    Now go and get some sleep :-).

  6. Join in! It's very fun. I should have tried to get the gophers in every answer. If I was thinking straight I may have thought of that myself!

    I get cranky without enough sleep too so I'm sure my family wishes it were better. I've always been a night owl but this is ridiculous. In the last two weeks there have been three nights where I didn't get to bed at all. I don't feel too tired if I keep moving and sometimes I can get a nap in. My brain feels like it's full of jello.

  7. Hi, Debbie! I gave you an award you can pick up at
    and I am sorry I don't know how to make that link in a comment box...but congrats and hope you don't have it yet!

  8. LOL. Loved the gophers!
    I hope you get some much needed sleep.

  9. I remember Caddy Shack.
    I think they are showing it on AMC

  10. I laughed out loud at your answer to number five!


Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I hope you keep coming back!
