Johnny Angel

1) In this song, a girl sings that she'd rather spend a quiet evening at home than go out on a date. How about you? Do you enjoy quiet time? Or do you prefer keeping a busy calendar? during the school week, I do have a hectic schedule--so I enjoy quiet time whenever I can get it

2) She dreams of how her life with Johnny would be. What did you most recently daydream about? it was about staycation

3) Shelley never considered herself a singer and is more comfortable acting. A costar on The Donna Reed Show, she was pressured to make this record by the show's producer, who wanted extra exposure for the show by having this song on the radio. Tell us about a time you ventured outside your comfort zone. I did via email Thursday

4) Elvis said she was his favorite leading lady, and she appeared with him in three films. What qualities do you appreciate in a coworker? I like when they are organized and willing to share the load--oh, and funny!

5) She met her close friend and fellow teen star Annette Funicello when they were 12 and attended the same Catechism class. What do you recall from your middle-school years? I was a bit of a wild child, believe it or not

6) After The Donna Reed Show, Shelly went on to a recurring role on One Day at a Time and was twice nominated for an Emmy for her work on Coach. Her husband is Mike Farrell, who played BJ on M*A*S*H. Which of those four sitcoms would you enjoy binge watching? M*A*S*H

7) In 1962, the year this song was popular, is also the year Jack Nicklaus began his successful pro golf career. Do you enjoy playing golf? Watching it on TV? no to both, although watching it on TV (usually before 60 Minutes) reminds me of Grampy

TWO Random Questions (especially for Harriet):

8) A 2013 study said most Americans will have 12 romantic relationships in their lifetime. Does this mean you've had more or less than your share? I'm not too far behind

9) It's closing time at the mall and you find yourself accidentally locked in a toy store. You call the police and they say someone will be there in about half an hour to rescue you. While you wait, will you play with any toys? (If so, which ones?) probably the stuffed animals

Goodness, I forgot all about the stuffed animals. And, thank you for all that you do for kids. Teachers really do work awfully hard.

I can believe you were a wild child. Yep. I have no problem with that.

Aw, Grampy memories are the best!
