Friday Feast #189

Appetizer-- What was your favorite cartoon when you were a child?

One of the things I loved most as a child was reading the funny pages in the Sunday morning paper. The cartoon I remember most is Dagwood and Blondie. I think Henry and Little Lulu were published in the funnies back then as well. I also remember Pogo, but I never understood what was supposed to be funny about it. I didn't realize until I got older that it wasn't a kid's cartoon.

Soup-- Pretend you are about to get a new pet. Which animal would you pick, and what would you name it?

Right now, I can't even pretend that I would get another pet. I love Ginger, I adore her, I'm closer to her than any pet I've ever had. I also love Mr. Woody K. Nibs, but the two of them are enough and I can't imagine having another pet if something happened to either one of them.

Salad-- On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how much do you enjoy getting all dressed up for a special occasion?

This is hard. Getting dressed up is something I dread. Once I've done it and gotten to whatever big event prompted it, I'm glad I went to the trouble, but I literally hate the thought of having to do it. So maybe a 2 or 3 at most?

Main Course-- What kind of music do you listen to while you drive?

I love most music genres, rock, pop, oldies, contemporary christian, blues, jazz. Favorite artists include the Beatles, Eagles, Leela James, James Taylor, Carole King among so many others.

Dessert-- When was the last time you bought a clock? And in which room did you put it?

The last clock I bought (as a clock, not one that came with an appliance) was the little one sitting on the mantle in my family room. The last clock that came into my house was with my new coffee maker, which I love, that I got for my birthday. That one is of course in the kitchen!

You served up a delicious feast. I'm shocked by how similar our recipes are. I hope you'll stop by and give mine a taste and see how similar we are.

Oh, and I love Carole King. LOL!

Oh Marsha we are kindred spirits! I so agree about the dressing up thing - if I go to the effort and head off to the event, I am generally glad I did; but what an effort to get me to that point LOL!

Lovely feast, enjoy your weekend :-)

Hi Marsha!!!!
I remember seeing those very old Blondie TV shows with Arthur Lake, I thought they were very funny. I like Daisy the best. Funny about Pogo!

I agree about the dressing up. I think you reach an age where you just don't really care about looking good for other people, just feeling good about who you are and what you contribute to society.

Great feast and I hope you can stop by mine and sit down and have a few nibbles and of course a laugh (yes, bonus dessert this week).

Have a great weekend!

I loved reading the newspaper comics, too. Remember stamping the comics with Silly Putty?
I liked Nancy, too. I can remember my dad reading the comics to me on Sunday mornings :) Great memories!

Thanks for visiting my Feast today. Have a good weekend!

Nice feast, Marsha. I remember Dagwood and Blondie too, I would read them every day in a newspaper that was coming to my hometown from Buenos Aires...

You made it to my Top 10 for April 2008 (check it here.

Mr. Woody K. Nibs. Hands down, that's got to be the coolest pet name I've heard!

I dread getting dressed up also...I try to enjoy things once I am ready but I find crowds hard to deal with.

i agree with your soup. taking care of a pet is a big responsibility. i have a labrador and I don't think we can ever take care of another one specially now that we have an active two years old.

thanks for dropping by my feast.
