Saturday 9 ~ Don't Rain on My Parade

Don't Rain on My Parade
You can see the others that participate in this fun meme at
Saturday 9.




 Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that   we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!



Saturday 9: Don't Rain on My Parade (1968)

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

1) Is rain expected where you are today? Nope...rain is forecasted for Monday

2) In this song, Barbra Streisand warns everyone to not spoil her optimistic mood. What is something you're feeling really good about today? that I got to sleep in and not be woken up by an alarm clock!

3) She sings that life is candy and the sun is a ball of butter. Which have you consumed more recently, candy or butter? candy... to be specific, I am on a Rolo kick or a mini twix kick

4) This song is from the musical Funny Girl. It's based on the true story of Fanny Brice, who starred on Broadway, in movies and on the radio between 1910 and 1951. At the beginning of her career, no one thought she would succeed because of her unconventional looks, but she forged ahead, saying, "I make things happen for me." Are you focused, like Fanny? I like to think I am

5) When the stage version of Funny Girl was in pre-production, the part of Fanny was offered to actress Anne Bancroft, but she felt the songs were too difficult for her. Singer Eydie Gorme dropped out when told her husband, Steve Lawrence, could not play the male lead. Carol Burnett said she'd love to do it, but also admitted she thought she was wrong for the role. Running out of time and options, producer Ray Stark decided to give lesser-known Barbra Streisand a try ... and the rest, as they say, is history. Has there ever been a time in your life when you were glad things didn't work out as you'd originally planned? hands down yes... thinking related to guys, I definitely am better off now than I would have been if I had stayed with a certain person!

6) Funny Girl was the top grossing movie of 1968. #2 was 2001: A Space Odyssey. Given the choice, would you rather watch a musical or a sci-fi flick? a musical

7) Streisand's favorite color is burgundy because it reminds her of when, as a little girl, she received a hand-knitted sweater as a gift and wearing it made her feel special. What color is your favorite sweater? I have to think... do I have any sweaters..... with this season of life I am in.. I don't like to wear sweaters as I get way to "hot"!... I think the only two sweaters I have, one is black and the other is purple....

8) In 1960, she began performing in New York clubs but she had a hard time getting work because she was only 18 and most nightclubs wouldn't hire a girl not yet old enough to drink. Do you remember your first legal alcoholic beverage? What did you have? first "legal" one.... hmmmm a Blue Motorcycle

9) Random question: How many people know the real you? not many, not many at all!

Tuesday 4 Meme ~ Weather or Not...



I am happy to see that Annie from Cottage by the Sea is continuing on with the Tuesday 4 that Toni started.


Questions will be up for you here at 9PM on Sunday nights which will give enough time to answer and post on your own blog on Tuesdays.

Welcome to Tuesday 4. I am sure Toni would be so pleased you are here.


Weather or Not...



Let's discuss the weather...


1. Spring is here. What do you like or dislike about it weather wise? The rain... while its needed to help boost along the new life of things... it just makes the days gloomy!

2. How do you fare in humidity? Do you fade or come alive? fade...most definitely fade

3. Do rainy days bother you or are you happy for an occasional break from the sunshine? they bother me... the gloominess of the day puts me in a mood... not the seasonal depression mood of winter.. just a mood...lol

4. In your opinion, what is the best thing about each season? winter.. the only thing good about it is, I get alot of craft projects started and or finished... Spring all of the new life/growth... Summer - sun, sand, flip flops! Fall.... the changing colors, the smells, warm cozy sweaters/sweathshirts.

Happy Homemaker Monday

Good morning everyone! I went MIA for the last weekish. We lost my husbands uncle March 31st. It rattled me... was not expecting this... when you hear you have 6 months and a week later you are gone. The funeral was last Tuesday, it was sad, but yet a good day. I don't think I ever laughed at a funeral service. So many fond memories of Uncle Wayne were mentioned. He will be missed!

And now one with HHM


I am linking up with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Head on over to find some other great bloggers.
