I don't seem to have appropriate photos for this post, so I will use mostly images from my vintage Christmas card collection..Here are this week's questions:
1. On December 5, 1901, Walt Disney was born. Have you been to Disneyland or Disney World? Can you share a favorite Disney memory?
I have never been to either Disneyland or Disney World. Although it would be fun, I'm sure, it is not a bucket list activity for me. For a Disney memory -- I loved the Mickey Mouse Club on TV in the 1950s and seldom missed watching it.
2. The first roller coaster attraction at Walt Disney World was Space Mountain. Do you/did you like roller coasters?
I have never really loved roller coasters, though I must say I did ride one or more of the old wooden roller coasters in my teenage years and lived to tell about it.
3. The very first fairy tale that Walt Disney made a cartoon about was Little Red Riding Hood. Did you enjoy fairy tales when you were a youngster or did they scare you? Did you have a favorite?
Hmmm ... you know, I really can't remember -- but, knowing myself, I imagine they scared me. Some of them made me sad. I remember sobbing and sobbing over The Little Match Girl.
4. In Lady & the Tramp, Tramp’s real name was Butch! Do you have nicknames for your fur-babies and/or for your children?
My kids tended to give each other nicknames. My daughters called their brother Goofy. He called my one daughter Chefette and my youngest daughter called her Pooky. The older daughter called her little sister Big Moose for awhile. (No idea why.) Of them all, Pooky is the name that has stuck.
We all, parents and kids alike, called my youngest daughter JoJo -- and that has also stuck, as her nieces and nephews all call her Auntie JoJo.
5. I can’t let this day go by without respecting George H.W. Bush, as he lays in state in the Rotunda of our Capital today. He was our 41st President and only the second father to have a son follow him as President of the United States. President Bush loved his colorful socks. I bought Joe a pair of George H.W. Bush socks for Christmas one year. I know Myra has a pair… any other bloggers checking in today who have a pair of the Presidential socks in a drawer at home? How do you feel about colorful socks?
Oh, I like colorful socks! I enjoy wearing them and I enjoy seeing others wear them. (I don't own any presidential socks, however.) Over the past few years when mismatched socks have been quite acceptable, I've enjoyed seeing the combinations my teenage granddaughters have come up with.
6. Please tell us something random about your week!
We've gone out to breakfast twice this week! Quite unusual! Once with several of the grandkids to McDonalds' on Saturday, and then this morning when my hubby had the day off unexpectedly. We went to a favorite cafe, and it was uncrowded and very relaxing.
