I'm Gonna Put Some Glue 'Round the Christmas Tree (So Santa Will Stick Around All Year)

1) This week's featured songstress, Peggy King, sings that she'd like to extend the Christmas season all year. How about you? Do you wish the season was longer? Shorter? Or do you think things are fine as they are? I really love the holiday season--and I listen to Christmas music all year round, so... I don't know, it's good as they are

2) She specifically mentions toys. Have you purchased/will you purchase any toys as holiday gifts this year?
I donated to Toys for Tots and a local angel tree

3) Search for "glue" on The Home Depot's website and you'll get more than 3,000 results. There's heavy-duty adhesives, all-purpose glue, clear epoxy, wood glue, and more. Do you currently have glue in your home? If yes, how many kinds?
I have two types of glue

4) What's the last thing you used glue for? at school, I use it all the time--mostly in the form of sticks--I used it yesterday when I made an anchor chart

5) This week's featured artist, Peggy King, was a TV staple in the 1950s. With her perpetually upbeat persona, she was known as "Pretty, Perky Peggy King." Do you consider yourself upbeat, aka "perky?" yes

6) Ms. King got her start singing radio jingles for Hunt's tomato sauce. Prepared tomato sauce, properly stored, can safely be kept in the refrigerator for days. Do you have any leftovers in your refrigerator right now? I do not have much of anything in my refrigerator currently

7) Her biggest movie role was in Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955). Do you watch scary movies and shows all year around? Only at Halloween? Or not at all? I watch them when the mood strikes (which isn't often)

8) In 1954, the year this record was released, President Eisenhower dedicated the Marine Corps. Iwo Jima Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, just outside of Washington DC. If you were to play tourist in our nation's capital, what site would you be certain to visit? I haven't been to DC since the MLK monument was made, or the WWII monument, or the FDR memorial--so I would definitely go to those and I would LOVE to get tickets to the African American History Museum

9) Random question: Which of these common household items would you miss most if it suddenly went on the fritz -- your bedside lamp or your hair dryer? I don't use a hair dryer so the bedside lamp wins!

That is awesome you give to Toys for Tots! We usually give to a homeless shelter for dinners, but we really need to do the angel tree too.
I see George sent you a new picture! He is so handsome! He is winking at you! Loved your answers! Have a great weekend!

I forgot to mention the African Amerian History museum. That's new since I was last there. (And BTW, that's a great new photo of George!)

I love that you and so many of the other thieves give to the kids at Christmas! I didn't know there was an African American museum. That will go on my list, too. It would be fascinating.

I am struck by the irony of asking a teacher when they last used glue.
I like your hair just as it is too :)
