Here We Go Again!

Behind The Blogger Book Tag!

This is hard to believe, two in a row!  Talk about exciting!  A big thank you to my friend Stu over at

He has a great blog full of encouraging posts so please feel free to check him out, I am sure he would appreciate your visit!  Now, Stu did say this was for Steve and Muffin, so, after talking it over with Muffin we decided to share in the answering.  And my feet are still in good condition, so it was definitely a wise choice.  For those of you who may not know, Muffin has her own blog on my site, you can find her Muffins Mewsings on my home page.


  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer all the questions down below
  • Pingback to the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx
  • Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about, to do this tag

1. Why did you start blogging & why have you kept blogging?

Well, some years ago I started writing a little something I called Steve’s Musings (the name actually changed a couple times) and sending it to people I knew just by email. They suggested I start a blog, so here I am. I kept blogging because it’s fun and I wanted to give people something different, something to make them smile a bit, maybe even laugh.

2. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?

This one is Muffin’s.  Meow, meow, mew, MEOW, meow.  Translation, she likes to write about her hard to train owner.  Muffin is watching after all and I value my feet.

3. What are your top 3 favorite blog posts?

Muffin’s favorite is the one called Muffins Beginnings.  Sad beginning, good ending.  I don’t know if I can actually pick a favorite at all.  I mean, I write them so I’m a bit biased. Sigh.  However, my most recent ones on spring cleaning are not too bad, seem to be popular anyway.  Does that work?

4. What are some of your favorite things to do to relax?

Now we get to something easy, I like easy questions.  In the summer, sitting on the deck spending time with my little chipmunks.  In the winter, sitting in my favorite chair with a good book and Muffin curled up on my lap purring.  I also used to love sitting by a lake on a warm summer day, listening to all the sounds, birds singing, waves gently lapping on the shore, can’t get much better than that.  Muffin adds, sitting in HER favorite chair with her owner and laying in the sunshine.  She meowed her approval of my translation there.

5. What are 3 of your favorite things?

Hmm, seems like a repeat of question 4.  Muffin wants to answer this one.  I’ll skip the meowing this time.  Playing with her owner, catching mice, sharing her owners food.  You can read all about that in her Mewsings.  I refuse to mention her other favorite thing!  AAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!  Okay, okay, she enjoys biting my feet.  Now where did I put those bandages?

I will add 3 for me too.  One, my family.  Two, photography.  Three, my blogging friends! Four, Muffin.  Five, writing.  Oops, only 3, oh well, at least I kept them short.  Sigh.

6. What are your proudest blogging moments?

What happened to the easy questions?  I would say all the great comments I receive from people and the wonderful people I have been able to ‘meet’!  Thanks to everyone for taking of your time to read and comment on my blog and even to sit and chat for a while!

7. What are your hobbies outside of blogging?

Oh good, another easy one.  I won’t bother listing all of them though, it would be a long answer.  Anyway, photography is my newest one.  I enjoy woodworking, though I keep it on a smaller scale now since my little apartment is getting rather full!  Feeding and spending time with my outdoor critters.  I still have a collection of insulators, though I am not really an active collector anymore.  I enjoy collecting old stuff, such as stoneware, graniteware, wood items, old games and more.  I also like collecting minerals and fossils, though on a smaller scale.

8. Describe your personality in 3 words:

This one is Muffin’s again.  Whew.  Meow, meow, meow.  That was easy.  Oh right, translation (Muffin is looking at my feet again), cute, cuddly, lovable.  She really is.

9. What are your top 3 pet peeves?

I get the tough ones.  Sigh.  There’s a lot of questions in this one.  Here goes;

First one: umm, uh, hmm, this is hard, oh, here’s one, no wait, that won’t work.  Must be something.  Aha!  Feet biting.

Second one:  this one is Muffins.  Meow, MEOW!  Translation, owners that don’t understand plain cat language.  You’ll find that in one of her Mewsings too.  Sigh.

Third one: forgetting to put margarine on my potatoes.  Does that count?  I think Muffin talks about that in her post on sharing.  Sigh.  I don’t think I’m doing very well here.  Oh well.  That’s me I guess.

10. What’s something your followers don’t know about you?

Naturally, the hardest one for last.  Sigh.  This is getting personal.  Wait!  This one is supposed to be Muffins!  Whew.  That was close.  Muffin is looking at my feet again. Okay. Fine.  I’m single, never been married, no kids.  It’s just me.  And my cute and cuddly Muffin!  Why do questions have to be so hard all the time?  Sigh.  It’s not quite so bad when you say it fast though.

Now for my tags which is another tough part since I really would like to tag every one of my followers but I will keep it short.  I think.  Sometimes anyway.  But not too often, gives me a headache!  Anyway, here they are;


Okay, there we have it folks.  Thanks so much for reading and I hope to see you back Wednesday for one of my normal (kind of) blogs, until then, enjoy your week and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. Thanks for participating and for the kind words Steve.

    What part of the foot is she getting. My Minnie just attacks my toes. I would much rather it be the top of my feet though 😦

    The margarine is classic. I laughed, probably too much on that one. But hey…cat owners…nuff said.

    You did another great job with your answers. Thanks for the assist Muffin👊

    And thank you for sharing your life, humore, love of animals and photos with us brother 🙂

    • Thanks for your encouraging words Stu! I wasn’t sure if people would like my having Muffin join in with the answers! She has actually “shared” the margarine more than once, the first time I really thought I had forgotten until I went back to the kitchen and then realized what had happened!😲. Muffin will just attack the whole foot, 😼it’s worse when she uses those sharp claws!😵. Oh Muffin meows her thanks too!😸
