Willy-Nilly Friday and Feline Friday - June 15, 2018

Welcome everyone.  Thank You to everyone who left comments on my (MIA) post from earlier this week.

Life has been so busy the last few months, some good, some not so good but all is well.

It's time for a little Friday Fun so let's join the party.

Tom (The Backroads Traveller) is hosting WILLY-NILLY FRIDAY FIVE

May flew by so quickly...lots of things going on.

The annual Ducky Derby was held on May 19th and as usual I purchased my 5 ducks in hopes that one of them would make it to the finish line and I would win a prize.  Alas, once again I did not win.  - Oh well, it's all for a good cause.
2.  Hubby celebrated a birthday the next day (May 20) so there was birthday stuff to take care of.  Here he is blowing out those birthday candles.

 3. He took a 5 day trip back to ND to watch his oldest granddaughter graduate from high school.  While he was gone I went to the Wildhorse Casino again.  Took my mom along.  We didn't win but we didn't lose all our money either. - Better than that though was that a local store had a promotion that if you bought a $5 and higher Scratch ticket and it was a losing ticket you could put it in a box and have a chance at the end of the month to win free lottery tickets.  Guess what.........

I won!  There were 3 winners drawn.  I won 2nd Prize - A packet of 50, $10 tickets. - We all had fun scratching them off and I ended up winning, $330.00 off the tickets.  I probably had put in about $50 worth of losing tickets but I gained that back plus extra and it was just a lot of fun finding out that I had won and the excitement of seeing if any of the tickets were winners was great.
4. Usually you see people walking their dogs but have you ever seen someone walking their.....

Pet Goats!
5.  I wait all year for the local strawberry season to start and so for the last couple of weeks we have been enjoying these lucious berries.

 In other news...I finally joined the ranks of Smart Phone owners.  Boy has that been a "learning curse I mean curve" for me!  I've accidentally taken "selfies", dialed my granddaughter while she was in school, called my daughter and didn't say anything because I didn't realized I had called her, hung up on an important call because I pressed a wrong button and the list goes on.


Harley wasn't feeling well yesterday and he spent most of the day sleeping, I caught this unusual pose of him while he was sleeping. 
Fond this video while searching for songs about Cellphones and just had to share it. - Hoping I don't become like this.


  1. It's an invasion! I don't trust those ducks. ;)

  2. We have a ducky derby here as well...Happy birthday to your hubby..Our strawberries are at their peak right now..Have a good Fathers Day weekend..

    1. Thanks, You do the same. Always a hard one for me since I lost my dad 20 years ago.

  3. You've been busy. Birthday's, graduations and a smart phone. I remember when i got mine. What a learning curse indeed. Things are much better now. I'm sure I don't know but a fraction of what my phone is capable of.

    Harley is a cutie pie. I hope he's feeling better today.

    Loved the video.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday, Harley. My best to your peeps. ♥

  4. ...dang, that's a bunch of ducks!
    ...only 10 candles?
    ...I like wining a whole lot more than losing.
    ...a first for me.
    ...I love strawberry season, making jam tomorrow.
    ...still have a dumb phone.
    ...blends right in. true!
    Thanks Ida, I hope that you find your way back soon.

    1. There were over 20,000 ducks floating down Mill Creek in the derby.
      6 on one side, 4 on the other...(64)
      I like winning more then losing too.
      Bet that Jam tastes good.
      Thanks Tom, It's been a bit stressful this month but we're dealing with it.

  5. Oh such a cute cat photo! Loved the strawberries too. Happy late birthday to your hubby! Wow, look at all those puddle ducks! :-) Fun post! Have a great weekend, and thanks for your comment on mine.

    1. Thank you. We love our kitties for sure.

  6. Happy Birthday to your hubby. I hope Harley feels better soon.

  7. The first looks so funny, in our neighbortown they make a ducky derby too, but without car I never can be there...
    Once I saw a man walking with a goat through the forest, but it's unusual. Why not?
    Congrats to the win and to the smartphone. I never had one in my hands, it's enough that my sweetheart has one.
    Enjoy your weekend

  8. Thanks for your visit. - Smart Phone are not easy to get use to.

  9. Sending purrs for Harley! He's a cutie pie! Happy belated Birthday to your husband! Yay for winning! Our mommy is on her smartphone all.the.time. One of her goals for the summer is to put it down!

  10. Love Harley's pose. Hope he feels better today. Smart were right...curse, yet so addictive.

    Congrats on your losing win raffle drawing, your hubby's birthday & granddaughter's graduation.

    Love the idea of the duck derby too!

  11. The ducks make me so happy!
    Enjoy the new phone!

  12. I still have a Phone for Dummies!
    I have seen our cats sleep in unusual positions, but yours has them all beat!
    Happy Birthday to your husband!

  13. Happy birthday to your hubby! I have bluetooth connected to my phone in my car and there's a button on the steering wheel to answer it, plus a button to hang up. But both of them seem to hang it up! I cut off everyone.

  14. Great momements captured and happy Birthday to your hubby!

  15. love that cute duck shot at the beginning and your hubby looks a lot like mine.. same beard and hair and shirts style... it does take a while to learn how to use the phone. I still can't answer mine correctly because I only use it for emergency's and no one calls me on it, so I don't get to practice. congrats on your winnings

  16. love your header shots ... so summery ... what fun. i love the strawberries ... aren't they the best. so yummy good. have a nice weekend. ( ;

  17. This is such a great post from start to finish. I am now hankering for some strawberry shortcake … I have been using a variety of smart phones for the last few years - the problem I have is that none of them are the same - I have to unlearn everything - yikes! I am forever asking my son to help me! Enjoy your week ahead, and hope your kitty is feeling better!

  18. oooooh i remember those ducks from years past, they are so cute!!

    and those smart phones, not always so smart!!! hehehehe, i have done all of that and more. i butt dial everyone!!

    the strawberry shortcake looks divine!!!
