Saturday 9: Daddy's Back

Crazy Sam's Saturday 9: Daddy's Back

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 take nothing but pictures, everything else just collects dust. When I was little we traveled to just about all the states this side of the Mississippi and we posted the bumper stickers from the tour traps that we stopped at on a wall in the basement.

2) When you fly, do you prefer window or aisle? Or doesn't it matter?
I prefer a window seat, but I won’t pay extra for it.

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?
Archie. He’s the best!

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?
A rule follower, I get very nervous when I break the law. I have a guilty face, one look and you know I was up to no go.

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?
My brother taught me to drive a standard on his MGB

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.)
Sam, you missed some states… NH, OH, IN, IL, WY & ID.
I have been to ME, NH, NY, PA OH, IN, IL, MN, WI, ND & WA.

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?
I was never a big fan of Winnie the Pooh.

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?
Well it is not so much the temperature but more about the humidity. I like a dry 75º.

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?
None of the them, there is way too much sugar, besides I’m not a dad.


  1. I wasn't aware that airlines are now charging extra for window seats! That's crazy.

    NH, OH, MT and ID are indeed sadly neglected northern border states, and Sam should be ashamed of herself -- but IN is bordered on the north by MI, IL is bordered by WI, WY is bordered by MT. You actually got me to pull up a map at 8:00 AM on a Saturday! :)

  2. Your right. That is what happens when you don't have your coffee first.

  3. Crikey that's a lot of geography before noon! I love Winnie the Pooh, and loved it more as a teenager than a little kid. I think there were cartoons :)
    And I'm with you - a dry 75 is perfect.

  4. I lived in Ohio before we moved to Michigan. DD2 was born in Cinci

  5. I'm with you on the temperature! I hate heat and humidity.

  6. I wish I could remember about the dusting thing more often when I'm buying souvenirs! :-)
