Tammy--In celebration of Debbie Reynolds

1. In this song, Tammy sings of being able to hear "the breeze from the bayou." What sounds can you hear as you answer these questions? sounds of trucks at the post office

2. This week's song was the theme of a popular movie about a girl who grew up on a houseboat in Mississippi. Looking back on 2016, did you spend much time on or around water? not near water nearly enough

3. In addition to being an Oscar-nominated actress, this week's artist, Debbie Reynolds, was a big movie fan. She amassed an amazing cache of movie memorabilia. Do you collect anything? I collect books and yarn

4. Though she never won a competitive Oscar for acting, Debbie Reynolds was awarded the Academy's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award earlier this year for 60 years of charity work. While she supported many causes throughout her life, one she was closest to was The Girl Scouts. She was not only a Scout herself, she was a leader when daughter Carrie was young and a fundraiser throughout her life. Were you ever in Boy or Girl Scouts? I was not a scout

6. The New Year's Eve fireworks celebrations in both Disney World in Florida and Sydney, Australia coordinate pyrotechnics and music. Are you expecting either fireworks or live music on your New Year's Eve celebration? well, there might be some fireworks shot off by local yahoos, but it's really cold, so maybe not but unfortunately, I will not hear live music

7. According to the National Insurance Bureau, more cars are stolen on New Year's Eve than any other single day. Are you confident your vehicle(s) will be safe and sound this Saturday night? yes, I'm confident it will be safe--I'm not in a high crime area

8. Do you have any New Year's Resolutions for 2017? well, I'm working on a couple ideas--nothing drastic

9. Looking back on 2016, what surprised you?
I was shocked to have to buy a car in July

  1. Books and yarn...my mom and I have you covered. I collect books and my mom collects yarn.

    Happy New Year to you!

  2. Sometimes cars can surprise you. I know when I bought mine in 2014 it was a surprise because I'd expected to keep using the one I had for a few more years.

    Happy New Year, KG. May the Force be with you!

  3. You and your car were so perfect, even the way you helped a former student make a sale. You two may just be my favorite love story of 2016.
