Saturday 9: The Trolley Song (1944)

... Because Stacey suggested Judy Garland. Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this movie clip, just about everyone (except Judy) is wearing a hat. Do you wear hats for fashion, for warmth or for both?
I wear hats to keep the sun off my face, sometimes for fashion but not lately at all, and for keeping my head warm.  So both, with one thrown in.

2) This song is from Meet Me in St. Louis, which was a huge hit and the second highest grossing movie of 1944. When is the last time you watched a movie in the theater?  
It had to be back in the 90's.  I don't like going to theaters anymore.  I'm just too old now, it's no fun anymore, and there is no PAUSE button.  You really can't watch a movie cross-eyed can you?

3) The movie follows the Smith family as their hometown, St. Louis, to prepares to host the 1904 World's Fair. What's the biggest thing happening in your hometown? 
Well, KISS is going to be performing  in town next week.  Is that big enough?

4) This week's featured artist, Judy Garland, is best known as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. That movie is shown so often that Sam thinks she may have seen it a dozen times. Is there a movie or holiday special you've seen over and over?
Yes, I love to watch "Miracle on 34th Street".  But there are so many.....alas, I must choose only one!  Isn't that Elder Abuse?

5) Judy admitted to being perpetually tardy. Are you usually prompt? Or are you always running late? 
I do my best to be punctual, but plan to be late for my own funeral.  Hey, why not?

Who let the dogs out??!

6) Judy's first professional performance was a rendition of "Jingle Bells" when she was just two. How old were you when you entered your chosen profession? 
Um... I never actually did have the profession I chose.  But I sang all the time.  From the time I could talk I could sing, and did.  My grandpa always loved to have his little grandchildren gathered around him and singing.  Singing is fun.

7) Thinking of "Jingle Bells," here's a wintery question for a hot summer day: What's your favorite carol? 
There are so many but "Carol of the Bells" is one that is just so irresistibly beautiful.  It was hard to find one that didn't pop up an ad for the Orange Menace.

8) Judy was a very demonstrative person. She enjoyed hugs and admitted that, when she nervous, she took emotional support from physically reaching out. Are you demonstrative?
I was until I left my grandparent's house with all my aunts around me.  And then we were raised by two pretty undemonstrative people so I had to learn over again to be a hugger.  Mr.Z and his mother and two sisters turned me back into a hugger.  However, I always was, and always will be,

A Tree Hugger


9) She told Barbara Walters that people would be surprised to learn that she was a good cook and specialized in desserts. Do you have a sweet tooth?
I like sweet things but I love salty things better.  Sometimes the saltier the better!


  1. I love sweet/salty together. A comparatively new passion of mine.

    Tree hugger is a wonderful thing to be.

    So are you a member of the KISS Army?

    1. Sweet salty is delicious, Gal. Have you had Salty Caramel ice cream? Yummy!
      No, I will join no Army, but looked up hometown, and found Kiss was visiting in August. That little burg must be very pleased!

  2. I am jealous that KISS will be in your town!

    Hooray for all us salt cravers.

    1. Kiss will be 2500 miles away, thank the stars! Heehee
      And yes, hooray for the salt cravers! * waves some salty caramel ice cream in the air to waft to Stacy's neighborhood.*

  3. Gene Simmons opened a restaurant recently in our town. I find it difficult to ever choose one of anything. Too many choices. We seldom go to the movies but, when we do, we wish for pause button and closed captioning.

    1. Ah yes, we quit going years ago because of there being no pause button. Closed captioning sounds good now, too!

    1. Buhahahaha! And that army of miscreants has now done something unforgivable in raising rumors. I am just a wee bit livid as my sister is starting to show advanced symptoms, and those cretins have made a major tactical error. They owe the nation an apology.

  5. Replies
    1. Yes, it seems they are milking every dollar out of former fame.

  6. Ah, the orange menace. Good description. : I enjoyed your answers. Do you like KISS? I never really cared for them.

    1. Thanks for reading! And, no, I don't like Kiss, not a single song. They are appearing in what could be called a hometown, in August, something that, for that tiny town, is a main attraction.
