Friendly Fill-Ins

This is a fun meme co-hosted by 15 and Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

New Friday_Fill-In_BadgeHere are the fill-ins:

  1. I have _______________ for ______.
  2. _________________ make me _______.
  3. I’m surprised that ______________.
  4. To make a long story short, _____.


Here are my responses:

I have a devoted protector for a husband. Until his foot opened up again Wednesday, David wouldn’t let me go outside unless he was with me, so that he could protect me from those big dogs if they came back.

Big dogs make me very nervous and panicky now.

I’m surprised that David was ever able to convince me to let the camera or recorder capture any part of me at all.

To make a long story short, don’t ask David to tell the story.   Short isn’t his “thing”. 🙂

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

    Yikes on those dogs and the damage they did. I would be scared of dogs now too.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

    Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I am sorry that David’s foot opened again, that is awful. I am also sorry about those awful dogs. I usually side with animals, but in this case, I would take a baseball bat outside with me. XO

    • Thanks, Ellen. I always enjoy the fill-ins very much. I look forward to them.
      Thankfully, the opening is very small right now and hopefully won’t get any bigger. We aren’t able to get him to the wound care appointments right now for a couple of reasons. Our car isn’t safe to drive that distance due to some mechanical issues, plus there’s a problem with David’s insurance that he’s trying to get worked out. We’re on our own dealing with this, well, Heavenly Father is here, but you know what I mean.
      I take the baseball bat with me most every time I go out there. Sometimes I forget, or I have my hands too full to carry it. I hope I never have to use it. I don’t want to hurt the animals at all. I just don’t want them to hurt me or anybody else, either.
      Have a blessed weekend. (((Hugs)))


  5. Sounds like you were mauled by some huge dogs Suzanne. That would be terrifying. The wounds are healing nicely I assume. Take care.

    I hope David’s foot will not be a pain in the neck for you two.

    • Thanks, Jean. Thankfully, it is just a little hole in David’s foot. We hope it won’t turn into the big hole it was before.

      The attack was pretty scary and maddening, too. Although it is taking forever, the wounds are healing. The bruising is pretty much gone now. Just the two deepest punctures remain.

      Thanks again. Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

  6. Sorry to hear that dogs have attacked you, have the local authorities been alerted? Anyway, your answers are great, i agree that big dogs can be spooky if they are an unknown. Our big dog, thank heaven, thinks every person is her new best friend.

    • Thanks, Mimi. There was no point in calling the authorities here. Animal control knows about the folks and the dogs that they have. They are over the limit and the authorities just turn a blind eye to it. They have had dogs removed once before, and the next week, they had a yard full again. Pretty much animal control doesn’t hold them to the animal laws and wouldn’t have done anything about this either. All calling them would have done is make the neighbor kids hate me. 😦

      I’m glad that your big dog is a friendly one. 🙂

      Have a blessed weekend.

  7. It’s a shame that people can’t keep their dogs under control. It’s usually the owners’ fault when dogs attack. Hope you weren’t badly hurt.

    Thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I love dogs and have one myself, but when people let their dogs roam free, it drives me a tad bit nuts. It can be a very dangerous thing for the dog and for those around it, as you unfortunately know first-hand. I hope you’re doing well! Oh, and I love how your answer to #4 so perfectly matches the answer David gave!

    • Thank you, too. I enjoy the fill-ins very much. I am doing ok, physically anyway. The rest is up for debate. 🙂

      I couldn’t think of a more perfect answer for #4. It is a running joke around here, that he can’t even say hello in less than 500 words. haha

      Have a blessed evening!

    Hahahaha! Your husband sounds like my husband! 😀

    Saying prayers for your continued healing.

    *hugs ❤

    • I’m the only short that is his “thing”. Words are a whole ‘nother story. So, your husband is a “worder”, too, eh? haha
      Thanks for the prayers. The two deepest wounds are still lingering, but not longer hurting. I guess the panic and startle issues will just take longer to deal with. Oh well, at least I have an excuse for the crazy that I am now. 🙂
      {{{Hugs}}} ❤ Have a blessed day.
