Friendly Fill-Ins

This is a fun meme co-hosted by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!


Here are the fill-ins:

1. A prop from a TV show or film I would like to own is _____________________________________.
2. My oldest friendship is ___________________________.
3. Whenever I ________________, I always _____________.
4. The best ___________________ is ___________________.

Here are my responses:

Though I would never fit into it, in either direction, nor would I ever wear it anywhere even if I could, I would love to have that sparkly red dress that Rhett made Scarlet wear to Melanie’s party in Gone With The Wind. I think even more than that one, I would love to have the green velvety ensemble that Mamie made for Scarlet out of Mrs. Ellen’s portieres (which I always heard as “four tiers”).

The oldest friendship that I can recall is with Allison Atkins. We were best friends in elementary school. But, I don’t know what ever became of her.  Then came Mae and Bernice, but I’ve lost touch with them, too. The oldest continual friendship is Holly. We met in either the last year of middle school or the first year of high school, I can’t remember which at this point. We are still in contact with each other. Please pray for Holly. She just lost her mama. Ma Bevens was great and was like a mama to me, too. She was a great listener and she loved me, which is more than I can say about my own.

Whenever I go outside, I always get eaten alive by mosquitoes. They love me and always have. In addition to having poison oak, I have to deal with mosquito bites. And you know what? The mosquito bites itch way worse!

The best thing in life is free for us to claim - our salvation. It cost Christ His life, but we can freely receive it.

  1. Ma was one in a million. She was a little psychic, too. She always seemed to know what was going on.

  2. I have found that if I pour rubbing alcohol over most any kind of bite as soon as I can after getting it, I have a lot less trouble later with itching and sores.

    1. Alcohol is like duct tape, it fixes everything. :) Unfortunately, I believe David and the kids ganged up years ago and banned alcohol from the house as it was my favorite tool. haha

      Have a blessed weekend. :)

  3. Anything from Gone With the Wind is great to have, especially those beautiful dresses. Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I agree with that. Gone With the Wind had lots of great props. :)

      Have a blessed weekend, too.

  4. First and foremost, I love your answer to #4. Salvation is found in Jesus only. He died to save us from our sins if we just accept Him and seek Him for our lives. God loves us and our sins can be forgiven. Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved!

    I'm sorry about Holly's mom.

    Mosquitoes love my husband too. I feel for you.

    1. Thank you, Annie. :) Do you ever wonder why it had to be that way, why He had to die for our sins, why Heavenly Father didn't work this out some other way? I think about these things a lot. What a wonderful brother Jesus was to sacrifice Himself for us.

      Thank you for your sympathy for Holly and her family. Ma was one of a kind.

      I'm sorry that your husband is a mosquito buffet, too. What is his blood type? I am wondering if he is O+ like I am. Many of those I know who get bitten on a regular basis have O+ blood type.

      Have a blessed weekend. :)
