9: Crazy Little Thing Called Love (1980)
I always wanted a
leather jacket until I finally tried one on in a leather shop in Florence
and realized how HOT they are, so I lost my desire for a leather jacket.
This statue is called "the joggers" and caused a LOT of controversy when it was first put up because people felt it was too close to the sidewalk and people might hit their eye on the outstretched finger of the jogger on the left. After much discussion, they moved the statue back a bit from the sidewalk.
When they first put it up, it was turned around with the finger point to the
right. Some people complained that since the police station was
located in that direction, it looked like a woman was going accosted and she
was pointing to the police station for help, so they turned it around.
(This is a weird town) To my knowledge nobody has ever hit their eye on the finger.
I was never an Elvis fan, so one
song is as good as the other for me.
No. Not since my kids grew
up. Now I watch animated movies with my grandchildren, but not really
cartoons, except maybe occasionally South Park or the Simpsons.
I want to see Insides Out, though. I do love some animated
feature films (the kids made a Frozen fan of me) and will still watch
the old Disney classics.
Most of my best friends are people I met while in
college. I am Facebook friends with a couple of women I went to grammar
school with in the 40s-50s. With one woman, our political views are
total opposites so we never actually communicate via Facebook, but I"m sure
she rolls her eyes at my posts the same as I roll mine at hers.
Neither, but if forced to choose one, it would be the pool. I couldn't
hit a tennis ball to save my soul, but I CAN stay afloat in water.
Just barely. (Though I haven't been in a pool since 2009)
Oh yes. But I can't remember a
specific thing now, though. If I'm offended. I also write about
things that I like. I think the last letter I wrote was about our local PBS
station removing my favorie show, Theater Talk (which I now have to
watch on the internet)
I participated in a post card
scavenger hunt on SwapBot and used
Post-It notes to identify each post card.
I always thought of myself as someone who blushes easily,
but I think maybe not so much any more.
