I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
From the archives

1) This week's song was performed by James Cagney in the famous movie of the same name. Do you plan on going to the movies this holiday weekend? I do not have plans to go to the movies, however, I have several movies on my DVR that I would like to watch

2) Though known for his larger-than-life screen presence, Cagney was only 5'5". How tall are you? I am that same height

3) During the Revolutionary War, General Washington celebrated the 4th of July by giving his troops a double ration of rum. Will you imbibe any spirits this holiday weekend? I recently was carded when purchasing wine--I might have a glass of that wine!

4) American history was one of Crazy Sam's best subjects in school. Science was her worst. In which class did you earn your worst grades? I struggled mightily with math.

5) The Fourth of July means we're in the middle of summer. Are you careful about applying sunscreen? crazy careful!

6) Mosquito bites can be a major summer annoyance. Are you scratching any itches right now? nope

7) Emergency rooms report an increase in wrist injuries in summer, with people falling off bikes and skateboards and jamming their wrists catching hard-hit softballs. Have you recently been to the ER or Urgent Care? knock wood--no!

8) New York is home to Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest every year on the 4th. Will hot dogs be consumed in your household this weekend?
I doubt it

9) Atlanta hosts a 10K Peachtree Road Race every 4th of July. Are you a runner?
oh, hell no!

It's been several generations since I was carded when buying anything. What a thrill that would be!

Happy Saturday! And have a Happy 4th!

I'm having a cookout at my house and I'm not having any hot dogs... sausages yes.

The last time that I got carded was at a grocery store just after I turned 40. The lady yelled "You don't look 40" and the entire store went into dead silence to look at me :) I'd give about anything to have that happen to me again..

Oh hell no! Loved that answer. Spot on.

You're so much wiser than I am with the sunscreen! I forgot I had it in my purse as I was sitting out there, baking at the bus stop. Shame on me!

You're pretty tall, IMO, but I'm knee-high to a gnat. lol.

I wish we would get our TV and some DVR set up, too, because I miss sitting on the couch and chilling out to the tube.

Yay for being carded!

I sweated bullets over some of the maths. In my time, pre-60's, you only had to have Algebra I and II, and Geometry to fulfill requirements.
Have fun watching your movies and drinking that delicious wine!
Happy Fourth!

I love getting carded these days. I never was "caught" buying underage (because I don't think I ever did?), but it's quite fun being "caught being legal."

Also, Oh Hell No! pretty much should be a T-shirt. :-)
