Harper Valley PTA

1) This week's featured artist uses her middle initial (C. for Carolyn) all the time. Do you use your middle initial very often? no

2) In this song, a mother tells off the local PTA. What's the most recent school event you attended -- whether as a parent, a teacher or a student? I went to a track meet today to visit some of my students

3) The lyrics reference the mom's miniskirts, which were trendy in the 1960s. The website Popsugar reports that gingham checks are trendy for 2015. Tell us about the most recent addition to your wardrobe. I bought a pair of Land's End shorts

4) Thinking of moms, Access Hollywood named Carol Brady of The Brady Bunch TV's #1 mom. Who is your favorite TV mom? I was partial to Ma Ingalls or Mrs. Cunningham

5) Mother Winters always gave Sam peppermint tea to calm her stomach. Do you have any tried-and-true home remedies to share? ginger ale or plain potato chips for a queasy tummy, especially if hung over

6) Sam's mother always tips 15% in restaurants. Sam has worked in food service and is more judgmental, tipping between 10% and 25%, depending on the quality of the service. What's your tipping policy? Are you more like Sam or her mother? I am more like Sam's mother although I tip higher than 15%

7) When the tip of her shoelace becomes frayed, Sam's mother snips off the end and then paints the tip with clear nail polish. Good as new! Sam thinks that's crazy because you can just buy new laces for less than $2. Are you more frugal like mother or spendthrift like daughter? definite spendthrift!

8) Mother Winters loves how french vanilla smells and burns her Yankee Candles all year around. Do you use scented candles or air fresheners? not really

9) Sam is celebrating Mother's Day with her mother's favorite, Hershey Bars. Would you prefer classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate or chocolate with almonds? today I would like almonds in my chocolate

The print shorts are cute. I seldom watched Little House when it was on the first time; the few episodes I saw made me cry. Maybe I should revisit it. PS Is that a new picture of George? He looks like he's gazing upon my comment with amused approval.

I thought about listing Ma Ingalls. She was definitely a good ma. And so was Mrs. C. I completely forgot about her. Nice choices!

You have me thinking about potato chips. I have not had one in at least 10 years.

I loved Mrs. C too!! Ma Ingalls was also good - almost too good! I enjoyed your answers!!

Oh! Ma Ingalls was a great mom. LIttle House on the Prairie was one of the last things we watched on network tv. Good choice. Forgot that one. And plain ruffled potato chips are my favorite snack. Good to know they have a bennie!

I drink ginger ale often as I like the taste of it. I need to run to the store and get some! :)
