Saturday 9

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here

1) Crazy Sam's dad often traveled for business, and always remembered to bring her the little complimentary soaps or body lotions he got from the hotel. When you travel, do you bring back souvenirs? Send post cards? I send cards. My nephew, age 13, tells me I'm the only person he has ever received a postcard from. I think that's kind of sad. I also try to bring back something little for everyone at the office. It helps us feel a little more like a team.
2) When you fly, do you prefer window or aisle? Or doesn't it matter? Aisle. Gotta be aisle.
  3) According to, Jim Anderson (Robert Young) of Father Knows Best is the best TV dad ever. Who is your favorite TV (or movie) dad? I always wished Sheriff Andy was my father. He listened to Opie and seemed to enjoy his son so much.
4) Sam's father was the family disciplinarian. What about you? Do you consider yourself a rule maker, a rule follower, or a rule breaker? I live by myself, so I guess I'm all three.
5) Sam's father was the one who gave her driving lessons. Think back to your first few times behind the wheel. Were you a naturally good driver? Oh, I sucked. I'm a terrible driver.
6) This week's featured artist, Kenny Loggins, was born in Washington state. Have you ever lived in, or traveled to, any of our northern border states? (For those of you not as well versed in geography as Crazy Sam, that's AK, WA, MT, ND, MN, WI, MI PA, NY, VT, and ME.) Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York.

  7) As part of the duo Loggins and Messina, Loggins performed the song "House at Pooh Corner." Do you have a favorite character from the Winnie the Pooh books/movies? Eeyore. No contest.
8) The mercury is going to start rising. How hot is too hot for you? 85º? 95º? Or are you one of those  "the hotter the better" people? I HATE hot weather. If I was in charge of the universe, the mercury would never top 80º.
9) To celebrate Father's Day, Sam is giving away her father's favorite candy: LifeSavers. Would you prefer a roll of Wild Cherry, or Butter Rum, or Winter Green or Peppermint?  Wild Cherry, please.


  1. I had a neglected childhood, my mother never read me Winnie the Pooh. I never knew any of the Pooh characters.

  2. I can take the heat, it's the humidity that kills me. My favorite weather is 75 during the day, and in the 50's at night. I wish I could find somewhere that it is like that year round.
    And Eeyore :) love Eeyore!

  3. Oh, I forgot Sheriff Andy he WAS the best TV Dad.

    I was (am) a Daddy's girl, but the one thing we could never do together is be in the same car together while I was driving.

  5. I'd put you in charge of the weather!

  6. We the proud: Eeyore Lovers Unite!!

    I usually bring back edible things from trips for work. Everyone else does, so I feel like a creep if I don't. ;-)

  7. Your post reminded me of a song I recently heard for the first time (though it is not a new song) and which brought tears to my eyes as I heard it - 'I am already there' by Lonestar...

  8. I wonder how many of us readers are whistling the Andy Griffith theme right now..... :)

  9. I love that you have something special ...even if it's just the postcard bit. I don't send anyone anything. I hate the post office HERE... wouldn't want to try to find one elsewhere. Buncha commies!

    I HATE HATE HATE the heat. When I lived in Colorado, they used to say "but it's a DRY heat" I'm like bro...if it's 100 freakin degrees, I don't care if it's hot, humid, dry, wet, whatever... IT SUCKS! PERIOD

  10. aisle seat all the way!!!
