Saturday 9: Cold as Ice

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here. Here's the last Saturday 9 of 2019, because I'm kinda tired. 1) Look back on 2019 and share a happy moment.

The High School Meme

Today's Holidailies post is a good old Facebook meme, because I have much to do today! Class of: 1970 1. Did you marry your high school sweetheart?

Saturday Nine: Bonanza

Saturday 9: Bonanza (1959) Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here. 1) Bonanza ran on NBC for 14 seasons. Today it's rerun on Me-TV and TVLand. Were/are you a fan? Not particularly, but my Pop loved it. I'd watch it with him to keep from having to go to bed on Sunday evening. We kids got to watch Wonderful World of Disney, but Pop took over the TV afterwards because of Bonanza. 2) The... Read more →

Sunday Stealing: Fashion Asks

Oh, I know - it's Monday. What am I thinking, doing Sunday Stealing on Monday? Well, I'm thinking I'm tired and the weekend memes come in handy! What season has your favorite looks? Late fall and/or early spring, when it's cool enough to wear sweaters and boots but warm enough to go without a coat. Formal or casual? Definitely casual, but I do clean up nice. Early in my career, I remember being encouraged to... Read more →

Belated Sunday Stealing

I know it's Tuesday, but I'm feeling uninspired. Therefore, it's time for Sunday Stealing! Favorite novel and author? The Once and Future King by T.H. White. It's my favorite take on the Arthurian Legend, too. I took a course in Arthurian Legend in college and loved it. I haven't re-read this novel in a long, long time. I think I'll find it and do that. Favorite perfume/scent? Joy, by Jean Patou. I first experienced this... Read more →

Sunday Stealing for Holidailies

Only the second day of Holidailies, and already I'm defaulting to a meme! At least it's Sunday Stealing and it's Sunday, so I'll use that as my excuse.

I own more silver, but I also like gold. Back in the 80s, I... Read more →
