Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love to answer the questions, however, and here is today's questions!
Saturday 9: I'm Gonna Put Some Glue 'Round the Christmas Tree (So Santa Will Stick Around All Year) (1954)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) This week's featured songstress, Peggy King, sings that she'd like to extend the Christmas season all year. How about you? Do you wish the season was longer? Shorter? Or do you think things are fine as they are?
With the kids spread out over the country, the grandkids in
Santa Barbara, and my mother with Alzheimers, I don't think a lot about it
any more. So I guess "fine as they are" i my answer, though I wish
they would stop putting out Christmas stuff at Halloween!
I have a game for the grandkids, but mostly book instead of
I don't use "glue" per se, but a "gluey tape." I don't have a lot of gluing needs.
4) What's the last thing you used glue for?
A journal I was working on.
Definitely not. But interesting thing about Peggy King. She never made it big because she looked and sounded too much like Judy Garland (though not in this particular recording)
6) Ms. King got her start singing radio jingles for Hunt's tomato sauce. Prepared tomato sauce, properly stored, can safely be kept in the refrigerator for days. Do you have any leftovers in your refrigerator right now?
I am not a big fan of scary movies.
I have fortunately been in DC many times. I love the
Smithsonian American History museum, but I want to return to the Newseum,
the museum for the news media. Definitely not enough time to see it
all in one day.
I have neither, so wouldn't miss either.
