Saturday 9: Here Comes Peter Cottontail (1950)

Crazy Sam’s  Saturday 9: Here Comes Peter Cottontail (1950)

1) Which do you prefer: colored hard-boiled eggs, chocolate marshmallow eggs, or plastic eggs with coins inside?
The hard boiled eggs that I make into deviled eggs.

2) What's your favorite color of Peeps (yellow, purple, or pink)?
I don’t like Peeps, way too much sugar for my tastes.

3) All this talk of sweets is making Sam hungry. What's for lunch?
Mexican, I going out to lunch with a former classmate from Texas so she is taking me to a restaurant that she wants to try.

4) This song was introduced by country singer Gene Autry and it's still a favorite. Please share some of the lyrics. (And you're on your own; Sam didn't include a link to the song this week.)
I imagine that today’s kids are wondering what is “an Easter Bonnet?”

5) Gene Autry was so popular that a town in Oklahoma named itself for him. Have you ever been to Oklahoma?
Nope, I have been to Kansas through.

6) In addition to singing, Mr. Autry made 93 cowboy movies. What's the last movie you saw?
Does the Winds of War count? It was a seven part mini-series that I’m watching on Netfix

7) He and his horse Champion also had a TV show. Can you name another famous horse?
Trigger, I was watching Roy Rogers this morning.

8) Gene Autry also recorded "Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer," and it was, of course, wildly popular, too. Who is your favorite recording artist?
Burl Ives since we are on the fifties era music.

9) Back to the holiday celebration at hand -- Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated?
A good night sleep which is rare for me now a days.


  1. No one seems to like Peeps this morning. Then who is buying them? Parents of very little kids, I bet.

    The moderator of my classic film club recently recommended The Winds of War. He said it was Robert Mitchum's last great performance.

  2. We don't have any good Mexican restaurants around here.

  3. I could go for some Mexican food too only I'd stuff way too many chips into my mouth. Guess I'll just stick with the margaritas instead.... :)

  4. The Winds of War mini-series was great BUT the three volume book Series it was made from was at least five light-years better. For people who hate History, I had them read the novels,they gave a Great background in World War Two history...both European and the Pacific theatres.


  5. I would be lost without Nexflix now! I wish I was more tolerable to spices - I've not tried enough Mexican foods!
