Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Come and Knock on Our Door (1976)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This week's song was the theme to Three's Company, a sitcom that ran for eight seasons. Were you a fan? No. I've never watched more than a few minutes before scrambling for the remote.
2) The Three's Company theme was composed by Joe Raposo, who also wrote the theme to Sesame Street. Can you recall any of the lyrics to the Sesame Street song? "Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away. On my way to where the air is sweet. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street." OK, I know a simple yes would suffice, but that made me happy.

3) The lyrics to this song invite you to "come and knock on our door." What's the last door you knocked on (or the most recent doorbell your rang)? It seems like a simple enough question, but no knocking or ringing comes to mind just now.

4) Three's Company was about three roommates who live together platonically, sharing a two bedroom apartment. Tell us about a roommate who shared your living quarters. I've never had a roommate. When we were kids, my sisters and I had our own rooms. I didn't go away to college. I've never been married. I have always had cats, of course, but I'm not sure they count.

5) Each of the roommates has a profession: Jack is a cook, Chrissy is a secretary (aka administrative assistant) and Janet is a florist. When did you last buy flowers? I don't even remember, and that makes me sad. Back in the days when I had an office -- decades, in fact! -- I always had plants and flowers. But now, with open seating, there's just no room.

6) They often meet their neighbor, Larry, at a nearby bar called The Regal Beagle. What's the name of the establishment where you most recently enjoyed an adult beverage? Geppetto's.
7) Their meddling landlord was Mr. Roper. He was cheap, nosy, and very talented at fixing things around the building. How much are you like Mr. Roper? Are you frugal? Nosy? A handy do-it-yourselfer? Nosy.

8) Three's Company was controversial again, more than 15 years after it ceased production. In March 2001, Nick at Nite re-edited an episode after a viewer called, alerting the network that a bit too much of John Ritter was visible in his blue boxer shorts. Have you ever called, emailed or written to, a TV station to complain? No. If I'm displeased by something on TV, I use the remote.

Mentioned twice in the same post!
9) Random question -- Is the screen on your cellphone cracked? Yes. Upper left hand corner. I don't recall how it happened. Which stands to reason. I also have a bruise on my left forearm, and I don't recall how that happened, either.


  1. Cats lives matter!

  2. The doorbell/knocking question was an interesting one and it will be fun to see how others answer. I don't think we visit like we used to; however, the last doorbell I rang other than my own, was that of a friend who is not well. We took dinner to them one night a few weeks ago.

  3. I have a few bruises that I have no idea where or how they came from! Have a great Saturday

  4. #8 Yup,I let my fingers do the walking, or in this case my thumb.
    At my age I am always getting bruises that I have no idea where they came from.
    I had a bruise on my stomach that I was trying to figure out where it came from, I finally did. It came from cutting those wire rack shelving, I leaned on cutter with my stomach to cut the racks.

  5. Your response about the 'ringing" brought to my mind my ringing ears!!!

  6. Of course cats count!! Your last answer made me giggle. So much goes by unnoticed sometimes. I think everyone has said, "how'd that happen?" at least once and probably more.

  7. I just read a book called The Good Girl that took place in Chicago. I thought about you the whole time. I enjoyed it. I am also nosy. Loved your answers! Have a great weekend!

  8. Cats count! I think we deserve a good description of one of your feline friends. :-) I bruise very easily. I worried over it once, but my doctor said not to, so I don't now.

  9. I never think to put flowers in my classroom. Maybe that will be a tradition this year. :)
