2:30 in the morning, it is too cold in here and the fan is making the Winchell factor really annoying...especially on my left ear. I have my two brown blankets here, though. Have you any blanket(s) that you keep around your sofa/chair to comfort you?
Yes, I love my blankets and each one has a story so they give me comfort in two ways.

Would you like to make an adjustment to the year you were born if given the opportunity to do so?
No, I can't think of a reason why.

The last thing that you can remember spilling:
I don't recall, but it was probably just water.

Please help me. Would you please explain to me why television commercials need to be so blasting loud?!
To get your attention. Maybe you should cut the cable. Streaming without commercials gives the viewer more control.

One of your favorite sandwiches:
Egg salad on sourdough

Brown Boots

Seafood deluxe

Bob Odenkirk

Automotive store

Initials time:

G D Gallery Design

R H Red House

M O Moving On

A T Architectural Techniques

Something that brings you happiness:
Seeing my grandsons and having cool conversations with them.

What sort of book would you like to receive FREE this month?
Architecture and Design with lots of photographs, thank you.


Thanks for the fill-ins and good day wishes to everyone!

2:30 in the morning, it is too cold in here and the fan is making the Winchell factor really annoying...especially on my left ear. I have my two brown blankets here, though. Have you any blanket(s) that you keep around your sofa/chair to comfort you? Yes. I have several afghans, blankets and throws. Two are in my family room where I spend most of my time. The rest are stacked on a chair in my bedroom. It's supposed to get up to 93 here today, so I won't be needing one for a while.

Would you like to make an adjustment to the year you were born if given the opportunity to do so? No. I grew up in an era that was relatively peaceful and the country and my community were thriving.

The last thing that you can remember spilling: Water, when I watered my house plants yesterday. I always spill some.

Please help me. Would you please explain to me why television commercials need to be so blasting loud?! I don't know and it bugs the heck out of me, too, roosty. I thought a new law was supposed to go into effect several years ago where broadcasters were forbidden to make commercials louder than the programs. I never noticed a difference.

One of your favorite sandwiches: Grilled Reuben on marble rye.

Brown rice.

deluxe.

Bob Denver.

Department store.

Initials time:

Garbage Dump

Right Hand

Mars Orbit

Awfully Thirsty

Something that brings you happiness: Wildflowers.

What sort of book would you like to receive FREE this month? A German textbook. I'd like to brush up on the German I learned in high school (4 years) to the point where I can carry on a decent conversation in German and I'd like to read and write it better as well.

~ I do hope you all are doing well! Thanks very much for the fill-in's, roosty! Happy Fryday, everybody!

First thing that came to me because of the spelling was Winchell's Donuts a large franchise, but then the light turned on.

Because they want you to listen because they know we all get up and do something else during the commercial.

"Fryday Fill-ins ~ June 17, 2020 ~ Goodness knows."

So, hours later I noticed the above date; however, today is June 19, 2020.

Was that a test for us, rainroosty?

Have you any blanket(s) that you keep around your sofa/chair to comfort you? I have a throw that I love because it is so soft.

Would you like to make an adjustment to the year you were born if given the opportunity to do so? Yes, please.

The last thing that you can remember spilling: Did you know that if you put a plastic cup (with the lid on) of Taco Bell's Wild Strawberry Freeze in your freezer, the drink expands out of the lid and spills red ice stuff all over the bottom of the freezer? I must have forgotten that from science classes.

Please help me. Would you please explain to me why television commercials need to be so blasting loud?!
