Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 20


Annie at McGuffy's Reader and Ellen at 15andmeowing are co-hosting a weekly meme called Friendly Fill-In'sAll you have to do to participate is complete the statements and link your post up hereThis is a fun way to get to know each other a little better!

Here are the this week's statements:

1. The last movie I saw at the theater was __________________.

2. The title of my autobiography would be __________________.

3.  I would love to learn, ___________________ .

4.  I am glad that I learned,  ________________, because _________________.


 ~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Here are my answers:

1. The last movie I saw at the theater was several months ago because we usually watch Netflix.  My memory is so rusty that I can barely remember what shows I watched yesterday, much less what I watched that long ago! :-)

2. The title of my autobiography would be Six Pieces of Cherry Pie because there will most likely be six chapters of my life before I depart this world, all very different from each other.

3.  I would love to learn to write well enough to earn an income doing it, wouldn't we all? :-)

4.  I am glad that I learned that people and experiences are far more important than things,  because I think it's rather sad to watch people whose main goal in life is to acquire possessions. They never seem to have enough to be satisfied.

  1. Your leafy background is beautiful! I love the colors. :)

    I like the title of your autobiography.

    #3 YES! I would like that very much! I saved a file from a site awhile back that lists 100+ places that pay people for their writing. If I can find the URL again, would you like me to send it to you? Maybe there's something in it that is right up your alley. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I enjoyed your answers. I like the title you came up with. I think you are a great writer, you should get the Writer's Guide out of the library that lists all the places like magazines and submission info. Have a great weekend. XO

    1. Hi Ellen! There are six pieces to a whole pie so I thought that breaking my life down into slices would turn out just right. :-) Than you for reminding me about the Writer's Guide, I had a copy years ago, and I will download another one! Wishing you a really nice weekend too!

  3. You are right, people who see success as having more stuff will never get enough. When people buy larger and larger houses or more expensive cars just to use as a score card, soon the bar gets raised and they need a bigger house and a more expensive car.

    1. That's exactly the problem with materialism, David. There is never an end to it, and then you need a bigger house to store all that stuff, and it takes more time, energy and money to maintain it, and on and on. People today are greatly confused about the difference between wants and needs. In reality we need very little to be happy and get along just fine!

  4. If i remember, it was J.D. Rockefeller who said, when asked how much money was enough, "Just one dollar more." Chasing that rainbow never results in happiness.

    Cool autobiography title!

    1. That's so true, Mimi, it's an endless craving, an addiction to material goods that far surpasses reasonable need.

  5. I definitely think we all would agree that it would be nice to get paid to write for a living! And Amen and Amen to #4. Things are just that: only things.

    1. I would trade every single one of my things on any given day to keep my husband and children. They are important to me, the rest is just frosting on the cake, and sometimes too much frosting!!

  6. I love having Netflix! I am too cheap to go out to the movies. Where are you in the 6 pieces? Maybe you write to where you are and save a piece or two for left overs. Until you are working again maybe you could pursue writing? I don't get the more is better mindset either. I am trying to declutter (and not add new clutter!) and maybe look into a smaller home.

    1. Right now I see myself in the fifth piece of my pie, there may be yet a sixth, yet I will be quite content if I end up with this one since it is by far the biggest, sweetest slice of all! :-) Once I get the house reorganized I do hope to devote more time to writing.

  7. Interesting autobio. title. Why cherry? And six chapters? I would like to know those titles, too. Women's memoirs are amoung my favourite books to read.
    I know nothing about Netflix, but tend to watch just certain things or read. Or work with critters/rescue.
    If I could make a living writing, I sure would.
    I believe less is almost always better than more, as far as material things. There is no joy there for me. I like nature, critters, hugs...God created "things".
    Thank you for joining us for the Fill-Ins. Hugs!

    1. The six chapters would be my life before marriage, my four marriages and if I end up a widow there would be a sixth. I am hoping that day will never come to pass, but Papa Bear has been a widower twice and I'm praying God wouldn't make him go through that again. As seniors, it's a life reality we have to face.

      Netflix is wonderful and very inexpensive. I have a $12/month subscription for two movies at a time and we can exchange them for new ones any time we want at no additional cost. It only takes a couple days for new ones to arrive. We don't subscribe to the streaming service because it eats up too much of our data plan.

      I so agree with you about little joy in material things, I like decent necessities, but don't need all the "fluff", I want less of it!
