Friday Fill-in Time!!!

It’s Friendly Friday Fill-in time!!! I finally wrested control of my blog back from those usurpers!! What? It’s not “MY” blog – oh, you’re right, it’s a shared blog. Well, it is called “Toby’s Wrecking Crew” NOT the “Wrecking Crew and Toby!!” Anyway, I digress – mom and I are answering the Fill-in questions this week!

The questions are in black, my answers in orange, and mom’s in blue!

1. I wish I could afford to hire someone to:

walk me outside every day since mom is always too tired to do it.100_1764

clean my house and do my grocery shopping for me.

2. Zucchini

what the heck is Zucchini?

is wonderful when shredded and baked into zucchini bread. Also, sliced thin, sautéed with butter, salt and pepper until slightly soft – yum!

3. One Summertime memory I recall is

the first summer we lived in Savannah – it was hot, humid and stinky (there was a nearby paper factory and if you’ve never smelled the unique, disgusting ‘fragrance’ of a paper factory, well, I wish I was you!

the paper factory smell wasn’t so bad – in fact it reminded me of the hot, humid summers I spent as a child with my beloved Mama Bush in 8-Mile, Alabama. There was a paper factory not too far from her house and whenever we would go off antiquing we would occasionally drive by it.

4. This Summer

I have not gone outside nearly as much as I want to. Mom says it’s too hot. But I think she’s lazy.

 I have not taken Toby outside as much as he wants to go. I have my reasons and none of them include being lazy!!

  1. Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins. I enjoyed both sets of answers, but Toby, your Mom is anything but lazy. I am amazed at how much she accomplishes in a day. Zucchini is so good, I bet you would even like it Toby. Hope you get to go for a walk this weekend. XO

  2. You’re very lucky your mom walks you outside – our kitties always try to escape, but we keep them in the house since there are teens in the neighborhood that don’t care how fast or reckless they drive by.

    I’ll have to revisit zucchini – I’m not a fan, but it’s been a while, and maybe it just wasn’t made the ‘right’ way… though I do love zucchini bread! 🙂

    We lived not too far from a paper factory in PA – the hubby loved the smell, he said it reminded him of cooked cabbage. We could tell rain was coming if the winds shifted and we could smell it at our house a few miles away. I always held my breath whenever we drove past it going through town. 😉

    I’d be reducing the number of excursions outside when it’s hot, too. 🙂 Have a great weekend – stay cool!

    Friday Friendly Fill-Ins for Fun!

  4. My mum loves zucchini too, but we call them courgettes. She has never heard of zucchini bread but several have mentioned it today so she will check it out.

  5. Great fill-ins… but now I want some zucchini bread. My mom owned a print shop when I was growing up so I remember the smell of paper and ink. But I can’t imagine what a paper factory smelled like.
