The Trolley Song

1) In this movie clip, just about everyone (except Judy) is wearing a hat. Do you wear hats for fashion, for warmth or for both? I only wear hats for warmth--I actually hate wearing them

2) This song is from Meet Me in St. Louis, which was a huge hit and the second highest grossing movie of 1944. When is the last time you watched a movie in the theater? I don't remember

3) The movie follows the Smith family as their hometown, St. Louis, to prepares to host the 1904 World's Fair. What's the biggest thing happening in your hometown? the Crown of Maine balloon festival starts next week

4) This week's featured artist, Judy Garland, is best known as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. That movie is shown so often that Sam thinks she may have seen it a dozen times. Is there a movie or holiday special you've seen over and over? I watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles at Thanksgiving

5) Judy admitted to being perpetually tardy. Are you usually prompt? Or are you always running late? I am prompt

6) Judy's first professional performance was a rendition of "Jingle Bells" when she was just two. How old were you when you entered your chosen profession? I was 24 for my first teaching job

7) Thinking of "Jingle Bells," here's a wintery question for a hot summer day: What's your favorite carol? hmmm... "White Christmas" is today's choice--subject to change!

8) Judy was a very demonstrative person. She enjoyed hugs and admitted that, when she nervous, she took emotional support from physically reaching out. Are you demonstrative? yes! I am affectionate

9) She told Barbara Walters that people would be surprised to learn that she was a good cook and specialized in desserts. Do you have a sweet tooth? very sweet

Ah, balloons! My Cousin Rose used to live in New Mexico and rhapsodized about how beautiful those festivals are.

Plano, Texas has a great ballon festival. White Christmas always takes me back to 6th grade when I first heard that song.

We always watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles at Thanksgiving too. Great movie! The balloon festival sounds amazing.

I love hats, except there aren't many place to wear them except in big cities like Chicago or New York.

We go to the mountains in fall and winter, so knitted hats are good to wear- hat hair is ferociously ugly though.
We love your favorite movie and own a copy. Great choice. I miss John Candy.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is a great Thanksgiving movie! Have you ever watched Home for the Holidays with Holly Hunter, Dylan McDermott and Robert Downey, Jr.? I love that one, too.

White Christmas is a beautiful song choice. It brings out the romance of the holiday, I think.

My sweat tooth did me in. I snuck some chocolate bars up at the cottage last weekend, the first chocolate I had in years... it was so good!
