7 Friday Fragments - Feline Friday (cats, church, news, blogging, sports)

Friday Fragments is hosted by Half Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post to give Mrs. 4444 a break for the summer. Here we go:

Cute Screen Saver

My cousin sent me an email with lots of cute animal pictures so I saved some I especially liked. This is one of them that I am now using as my screen saver picture on my computer:
The big cat looks like my Manny Boy

Vet Visit With Manny Boy

Last Saturday Manny went in for his routine checkup and although he has the beginnings of Gingervitis, we did not have to have him get his teeth cleaned. The new vet said we could give him an antibiotic (Clindacure) just once a day for 3 days--just had to put it on his food. She said it will kill the bacteria that is making his gums red (they looked dark pink to me). Other than that, all is good, even his weight! Wish we had a third person who could have videotaped us getting him into the carrier--that's always fun!

Horrible News

Three teens in Oklahoma shot a college student from Australia because they were bored? Said they did it just for fun! These teens are despicable! Here is the link to the news story I saw on Yahoo News this week: Police Say Teen Shot Australian Student in Oklahoma For Fun. What a sick world we live in!

Good News

I always get a bit nervous when I see mail from the hospital after I had a mammogram, but was relieved to see my latest results are normal! It will be four years now the first week of September since my lumpectomy to remove the cancer.

Bible Study

I signed up for another Beth Moore Bible study at our church starting September--A Heart Like David. I really enjoy her studies so am looking forward to it. Also, our Women of Wonder monthly meetings will start up again. This year they will have a morning one as well as the Thursday night one to hopefully get more ladies involved. It is primarily a fellowship time with good food, short devotional, a craft or other fun type activity and prayer. Are you starting any new Bible Study at your church?

New Blogs To Me

This week I found two new wonderful blogs: Through following up on a commenter I discovered: Mary-andering Creatively and through the Note Card Party blog hop, I found Sue at To Live, Love and Journal Our Days. I am now a new follower of both and have added them to my blogroll. Hope you will pay them a visit too!

Question of the Day

Hope to get to 1 more game this year!
My husband asked me which I am more excited about: the Indians chase to get into the playoffs or the beginning of the Browns season. My answer is, the Indians. I look forward to the Browns starting again, but as long as the Indians are in the race, my focus will be on them.

New Design

I like that I can choose from lots of different designs at for my credit cards. Can you guess what I picked? If you read my blog regularly, I bet you can. One is a tuxedo cat and the other is a tabby. Just got the tabby one this week!

What a cute screen saver! Congrats on remaining cancer-free for 4 years. What a blessing that is. I heard that news about the Australian guy that was shot. So sad and disturbing. When I hear stuff like that, I try to remember all the good things that do happen in the world. Otherwise, it's just too depressing. Anyway, nice frags and hope you have a good weekend :-)

Love the screen saver. Too cute.

Have a terrific day and weekend. Scritches to all the babies. ☺

Paws up for the cancer-free report from the mammogram humans! I hope the medicine helps Manny's gums feel better.

Doreen McGettigan said...

Congratulations on such great medical news!! How relieved you must be!
Love the kitties...
The Oklahoma murder reminded me of my brother's sense less murder. 7 young men beat him to death because he was driving too slow. It was a past time for them. My heart is breaking for that young man's family and I am praying for them and hoping they receive some justice.
Our Phillie's management fired our beloved Charlie Manuel last week. It has been hard to even watch them since. I wish I didn't take it so personal:)
Good Luck to your Indians!!

Congrats on the good news from your mammogram!
I love the kitty caught in the blinds.

Lin said...

GREAT news on the mammogram!

I agree about the world we live in. I just said to my husband today--I don't want to live here anymore. But I'm not sure where we would go that it would be any different. Such a horrible story--such disregard for life.

Not at all surprised about the cat on the card. That just makes sense :-)

Those OK teens are despicable. Truly!!

I am so glad to hear you are 4 years clear. What a wonderful thing to be able to say!!!
