These Boots Were Made for Walkin'

1) In this song/video, Ms. Sinatra's boots make a serious fashion statement. Do you choose footwear for comfort or fashion? oh, comfort alllll the way!

2) This is by far the biggest hit of Nancy Sinatra's career, which includes 6 top ten hits. Can you name another? I cannot

3) Nancy recorded it on Reprise Records, which was founded by her father, Frank. Did your parents give you a leg up in your chosen career? although I followed in my father's footsteps, they did not give me a leg up

4) Professionally Nancy has been involved in espionage, singing the theme to a James Bond movie and appearing in an episode of The Man from UNCLE. Do you enjoy spy/secret agent stories? yes, I do!

5) Nancy maintains the official Sinatra family website, which includes a link to the site of Mia Farrow. Ms. Farrow was, briefly, Nancy's stepmother, and obviously they are still on good terms. Do you have a big, extended family? not a big extended family but a close-knit family

6) Nancy's music -- and posters -- were very popular with the troops during the Vietnam War. Nancy continues to return their loyalty and affection with her efforts on behalf of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. Here's your chance to promote a cause that's near and dear to your heart. What charity gets your support? a local cancer support charity: Caring Area Neighbors for Cancer Education and Recovery. I knit hats for them

7) Nancy hosts a Sirius radio show devoted to her father's music. Do you have a subscription to a satellite radio or podcast network? does Spotify count?

8) Nancy has said that she and her sister Tina had a more comfortable relationship with their famous father than their late brother, Frank, Jr., did. Do you think it's easier for mothers to get along with their sons, while fathers have an easier time with their daughters? oh, I have no clue--although I do have a fantastic relationship with my dad

9) Random question: Tonight's dinner is on us. Would you prefer to eat at a casual restaurant with exceptional food, or an exclusive restaurant with so-so food but a celebrity clientele? I would rather have casual and exceptional food

I love that you make something with your hands and then share. That makes your contribution so much more personal.

My mom knits hats for chemo patients, too. She's been featured in the newspaper. Her group also does scarves for soldiers, lap robes for shut-ins, preemie afghans, and prayer shawls. It's an awesome thing you all do. I wish I could knit.

Close-knit beats big and extended, I think. You have the better of it.
