Your Mama Don't Dance

Crazy Sam’s Your Mama Don't Dance (1972)

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.

1) This song is about how the older generation often doesn't understand what the younger generation is up to. Do you keep up with trends?
Somewhat, but it is hard to cross the age gap.

2) This song was in the top 10 in 1972, which is also the year HBO was introduced. Do you have any premium cable channels?
Nope, not a one. However, I do have Netflix and Amazon Prime.

3) Mother Winters taught Sam how to kill the lingering food smells in her microwave (take a bowl of water, add a few drops of vanilla extract, and heat it in the microwave). Do you have any useful household hints to pass along?
Put off the housework for another day.

4) The French word for "mother" is "mère." What other French words do you know?
Bon Jour

5) Flowers and plants are popular on Mother's Day. How is your yard or garden? Is it green and/or blooming?
It is, my nose and eyes can confirm it.

6) Mother's Day is a big holiday for card shops. So are birthdays, weddings, and St. Patrick's Day. Hallmark sells greetings for everything from "Congratulations on Your New Job" to "Happy Retirement." Who received the most recent card you bought?
They were Christmas cards

7) Have you put away your winter clothes yet?

8) Mother Winters used to scold Sam for leaving her dirty dishes in the sink. Sam admits it: as a grown up, she's still a bit of a slob. Do lean toward "neat" or "messy?"

9) To celebrate Mother's Day, Sam is giving away candy bars. Would you prefer classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate or milk chocolate with almonds?
Almonds, but alas I can’t have any candy bars


  1. My eyes have been all kinds of scratchy lately!

    I hope you can stop by and visit and maybe even sign up for my favorite color swap!


  2. I have ADCD as well. Is there a medicine for it? I will take it. Maybe we can have a telethon!

  3. I like your household tip!

  4. I have Netflix and Prime too. I only wish everyone would get along so that I could use one box to watch those and Apple stuff.

  5. OOoh, ADCD is a real thing!!! ;-)

  6. I never knew I had allergies until I was in my 40s. I always seemed to get depressed in May. I broke up with a wonderful, beautiful woman because I thought she depressed me. And all I had were allergies...

  7. Why the not a robot thing & comment moderation? I never got that...
