The Rain, The Park, and Other Things 

1) The Cowsills were a family band who had three hit singles. Can you name another group of popular singing siblings? The Jackson 5, The Band Perry, The Jonas Brothers, Carpenters, Hanson, I could go on and on...

2) This was their first hit, and it reached #2 on the Billboard charts. It was kept out of the #1 slot by the Monkees and "Daydream Believer." What's your favorite Monkees song? today I'll go with Last Train to Clarksville

3) After seeing the Cowsill brothers perform with their mother and sister, TV producers were inspired to create the sitcom, The Partridge Family. Did you ever watch it? I wanted to BE a Partridge!!!

4) In the song, the narrator takes a flower from a girl in the park. Are there flowers in your home right now? no

5) He isn't sure if the girl was real, or if he dreamed her. Tell us about a recent dream you had.  since it's been a few days, I can't remember any details but a friend and I went on some kind of scavenger hunt-type escapade

6) At the height of the Cowsills' popularity, they were hired by the American Dairy Association to promote drinking milk. If we were to peek into your refrigerator right now, would we find any milk? I have not had milk to drink since I was 13 years old--it's a texture thing, and I do not have any in the fridge

7) After the band stopped performing together, John Cowsill went on to become a back up musician for the Beach Boys. His job has kept him on the road much of the time. When you travel, do you enjoy staying in hotels, or would you rather stay with friends/family? I like having my own space--having said that, I love staying with family but prefer hotels when visiting friends

8)  In 1967, the year this song was popular, Elvis married Priscilla in Las Vegas. Have you attended any weddings yet this year? Are there any weddings in your future?  no weddings this year or on the horizon

9) Random question: Are the bottoms of your feet ticklish? I think so, I'm not really sure, the only time they get touched is when I have a pedicure/massage


  1. You wanting to be a Partridge...I can just picture you in your finest 70's garb with a shag haircut!

  2. I'm with Stacy. I can see you replacing Laurie Partridge behind the keyboards.

    I get you on the milk thing. I don't like raw tomatoes because they just feel like a mistake.

  3. I do not like to drink milk, but I like it with cereal. I don't have it often, but Josh does. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.


  4. After spine surgery I had to grow new bone and I became addicted to milk! I still enjoy seeing old Partridge shows.

  5. I don't have weddings on the horizon either. My kids are all married with their own kids. My daughter recently gave birth to my 8th grandchild...

  6. #2 me too
    fun list
    LeeAnna at not afraid of color
    ps, as to your header, I sure hope not... lol

  7. I also like having my open space but I have to tell you that this social distancing is carrying a to the extremes.

  8. Oh, my goodness, Kwizzy. I'm jealous of those of you who don't have massively ticklish feet! It's like my handicap in this family! haha. Your scavenger hunt dream sounds interesting; I think I shall try to dream of one tonight myself. ;) ~M

  9. At some point, I think I had a suede skirt like the older sister (Lori?). I thought I was very cool. My mom made it!

  10. I wanted to be a Partridge, too!

  11. I love fresh flowers and I have some in my house but forgot to take a picture. My daughter does not drink milk either.

  12. Hell yeah to being a Partridge! They were so much cooler than the Bradys.
