I'll Always Love My Mama

1) This week's featured artists, The Intruders, sing that they don't know how their mama made it through the week without ever getting a good night's sleep. How did you sleep last night? I slept quite well last night--the first time in about a week!

2) The Intruders performed this song on Soul Train, a syndicated show that ran for more than 3 decades. What show do you try never to miss? MASH and Friends and Seinfeld

3) On Soul Train, the Intruders wore solid black shirts beneath their brightly colored jackets. Black, white, khaki, navy and gray are considered neutral colors, because they go with everything. If we were to check your closet, which would we find you wear most often: black, white, khaki, navy or gray? depends on the season--but most consistently is probably navy

4) Especially for Mother's Day: Access Hollywood named Carol Brady of The Brady Bunch TV's #1 mom. Who is your favorite TV mom? I have a soft spot for Mrs. Cunningham from Happy Days

5) Mother Winters always gave Sam peppermint tea to calm her stomach. Do you have any tried-and-true home remedies to share? if you've been out drinking, make sure you drink water until you have to pee before you go to bed--that's to avoid a hangover

6) Sam's mother always tips 15% in restaurants. Sam has worked in food service and is more judgmental, tipping between 10% and 25%, depending on the quality of the service. What's your tipping policy? Are you more like Sam or her mother? How do you handle tips for carry out or delivery during this Covid-19 crisis?
I'm a generous tipper, always

7) When the tip of her shoelace becomes frayed, Sam's mother snips off the end and then paints the tip with clear nail polish. Good as new! Sam thinks that's crazy because you can just buy new laces for less than $2. Are you more frugal like mother or spendthrift like daughter? definitely like daughter!

8) Mother Winters loves how french vanilla smells and burns her Yankee Candles all year around. Do you use scented candles or air fresheners? not regularly

9) Sam is celebrating Mother's Day with her mother's favorite, Hershey Bars. Would you prefer classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate or chocolate with almonds? I like milk chocolate or with almonds and I avoid dark chocolate

I'll have to remember that hangover prevention tip. Also, emptying your bladder before bed is just a good thing to do anyway.

I always liked how sweet Fonzie was to Mrs. C.

I've heard it's good to drink water before because they say a hangover is at least partly due to dehydration. I never heard the drink water till you have to pee thing before, though. Wish I had back in my college days. It would have been nice to miss out on a few hangovers.

Also take a Tylenol when you're drinking the water, and you'll be fine in the morning
