Love Is All Around

1) This week's song is the theme from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, a sitcom that originally aired from 1970 to 1977. Were you a fan? oh, how I loved this show!!!!

2) The song tells us that Mary Richards can turn the world on with her smile. Yet the real-life Mary Tyler Moore said she was uncomfortable with her "wide mouth." If you could improve on one of your facial features, which would you choose? I would reduce my double chin(s)

3) We also hear that Mary can "take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile." What do you think makes a day "a nothing day?" A day with no plans or particular purpose

4) Mary works in the newsroom at WJM. Her desk is neat as a pin. Are you neat? Or do you lean to the sloppy side? my desk is relatively neat--there is usually one pile on the left (papers to correct or return)

5) Mary's best friend, Rhoda, worked as a window dresser at Hempel's department store. What department store did you most recently shop at? What did you buy? I was at Target and I shopped at the Dollar Spot and I spent $10!

6) Mary Richards lived in Minneapolis. What city is nearest to where you are right now? probably Bangor

7) Originally the part of Mary Richards was written as a divorcee, but in 1970, there were no TV shows that centered around a divorced woman. Think about the women in your life. Are most of them married, divorced, single or widowed? hmmm--a couple divorced

8) The MTM production company logo featured a mewing kitten. The cat was found in a Minneapolis shelter, and, after her sequence was shot, she was adopted by a crew member who named her Mimsie. What's the name of the last cat -- or dog or hamster or rabbit -- that you petted? Maggie! She's been really sad since Dad has been in the hospital for a couple of nights--he is her person and she is desperate for him.

9) Random question -- Would you rather have a job that kept you seated on your fanny or standing on your feet? at this point in my life--seated

I know what you mean about Maggie, a friend's dog took it hard when her owner passed away.

We have a Dollar Tree here. Ironically, I just got back from shopping there too :)

It seems many of us would like a reduction in chins. Perhaps e could get a group rate!

Poor Maggie. Reynaldo is like that with me. He's happy with other people when I'm around. He doesn't care one way or the other when I'm not. If I'm not here, his world isn't right.

Your little story about Maggie made me sad. My friend's husband passed away recently and the dog has been inconsolable.
