Papa, Don't Preach

1) Madonna has sold more than 200 million records worldwide. Do you have any of her songs on your iPod/mp3 player/phone? it wasn't until the mid-2000s that I started enjoying her music, now I'm a major fan

2) When she first arrived in New York in search of fame and fortune, Madonna supported herself by working at Dunkin' Donuts. What did you order last time you were at Dunkin' Donuts? a blackberry green tea, it was super!

3) Madonna and her first husband, Sean Penn, ended their marriage on New Year's Eve, 1988. Sam's New Year's Eves are never that dramatic. What about you? Do you have any vivid New Year's Eve memories you'd like to share? I watch When Harry Met Sally every NYE

4) Madonna admits she suffers from brontophobia, aka the fear of storms. Are you scared of thunder and lightening? I am not

5) Onstage during the 2015 Coachella fest, Madonna shocked the audience by planting a kiss square on the lips of much-younger rapper Drake. What's something that surprised you recently? some behavior at a family cookout

6) More recently, Madonna was at the center of a controversy because Prince fans didn't like her tribute at the Billboard Music Awards. They made themselves heard on social media. Was your last Facebook post or Tweet positive or negative? both were positive--on FB I shared puppies romping and Twitter was a photo of my great nephew Eli

7) One of the things Sam's papa preaches about is car maintenance. He reminds her to check her car's air filter regularly, because a dirty filter can reduce mileage. Share your own car maintenance tip with us. never leave the engine running when you fill it with fuel

8) When she was growing up, Sam's father was often away on business. He always remembered to bring back the complimentary shampoos, conditioners and lotions from the hotels where he stayed. When will you next stay in a hotel (or motel, bed-and-breakfast or Airbnb room)? my travel friend is making arrangements for our trip to NYC to see my friend who's starring on Broadway

9) To celebrate Father's Day, Sam is giving away her father's favorite candy: LifeSavers. Would you prefer a roll of Wild Cherry, Butter Rum, Winter Green or Peppermint? today I will go with Butter Rum

Harry Met Sally is one of those movies that I can watch over an over again. Your Broadway trip will be a lot of fun. That is so cool to know someone in the show.

I'm excited about your bucket list. I could use one too.

Even matched on the lifesavers!

Family get-togethers can be quite weird, in good and bad ways.

I don't think I've ever seen when Harry Met Sally all the way through. That's the one with Meg Ryan, right?

Best wishes to your friend on Broadway! Our daughters are in theatre, too, but at the university level for now. They love it. :)

There is often rather interesting behavior at family gatherings. I know it was never boring going to my Granny's house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She and my mama always managed to have a lively discussion or two.

Have a blessed day!
