Saturday 9: Easter Parade ("In Your Easter Bonnet")

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: Easter Parade ("In Your Easter Bonnet") (1933)

Every Saturday I take time off from written on serious topics to have some fun…

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

1) This song is about a special Easter hat to be worn with your "Sunday best." Will you be getting dressed up this weekend?
Nope. It will be a very informal Easter Dinner with friends.

2) Sam is not crazy about hats because she cannot stand "hat hair." Do you have a lot of hats or caps?
No, not really. I have a sun hat for the summer and knit hats for winter.

3) This song was inspired by New York City's Easter Parade. Does your community host a similar event?
Not that I know of, I don’t think there is an Easter Parade in the whole state.

4) On April 6, President Obama and Michelle will host lucky children for the 137th White House Easter Egg Roll. Which are your favorite eggs: colored hard-boiled eggs, chocolate marshmallow eggs, or plastic eggs with coins inside?
I prefer colored hard-boiled eggs. Actually, I liked the left over eggs because my mother used to make Deviled eggs with the leftovers

5) How about Peeps? Would you rather have yellow chicks or pink bunnies?
Danger! Danger Will Roberson! Being diabetic the marshmallow Peeps are like poison to me.

6) The biggest chocolate Easter egg was made in Italy, measured 34 feet tall and weighed a staggering 15,000 lbs. Do you thinks it's possible to have too much chocolate?
Definitely, as I said I’m diabetic and all chocolates and candies are off-limits for me.

7) Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. A 2013 poll tells us that red is by far the favorite jelly bean color, with yellow a distant second. Do you have a preference?
Boy, you really want to rub it in… I haven’t had any candy since 2012.

8) We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or Halloween?
There you go again with the candies!

9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated?
Spring! It has been finally getting up into the 50s and the start of walking season.


  1. I don't know what I would do if I was a diabetic, as I am too much of a sweets lover!

  2. I went without chocolate for 10 years because it gave me migraines - and then I got over that. I am sorry you cannot have candy, though you're probably better off for not eating it.

  3. Oh, deviled eggs are some of what we make with left overs, too. And we make Spinach and eggs, too.

    My grandmother had diabetes, so I'm sorry that you have this very nasty disease, too. There are few choices even in desserts, but candies are not friendly, agreed.

    Happy Walking Season!

  4. I love robot...

    Once my daughter scored me an after Easter sale with sugar-free peeps- you know with tons of malitol.... ;(

  5. "Walking season." I like that. Happy Easter.
