What Do Squash, Archie and Antiques Have in Common?

Well Joyce, you took me back a few years with these questions.  I really had to do some thinking.  Because of my advanced age, going back to my childhood years is quite a distance to travel.  But, it was fun.
Check out what Joyce and others posted

1. What's one thing you learned in September?
Just because I can see it and visually imagine it, doesn't mean I can reproduce it.

2. Acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, yellow squash, zucchini squash, or blech! hold the squash... what's your favorite squash? What's your favorite way to prepare your favorite squash?
Oh please, may I have two favorites?  How about three?
Hubby and I most often roast yellow and zucchini squash in the oven.  I toss the sliced veggies in a bag of olive oil seasoned with a special mix of spices.  Oh, so good!
We also love Butternut squash - halved, scored and bathed in butter and brown sugar.  YUM!

3. The older I get the more I realize and am grateful that this is only my temporary home.

4. What's your favorite television theme song ever?
Does it only have to be one???  Just can't do it!  So, here are some of my all-time favorites:
Charlie's Angels, Dragnet (Loved this show), Love Boat, Andy Griffith, Dr. Kildare, Happy Days, The Big Valley and Bachelor Father

5. What do you wish you'd spent more time doing five years ago?
Loving more, giving more, enjoying life more.

6. What item do you most need (or want) to add to your wardrobe this fall?
I would like to add a few more long angled tops to wear with skinny pants.

7. On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts cartoon was introduced to the world. What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
I never liked cartoons and still don't.  I know, totally un-american!  But, there was a comic book that I read occasionally.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I will not be doing my "Beauty Without Within Thursday" this week, but I will be sharing with you another great business here in my city.
Designer's Showroom is a showplace of  treasures where every item has a story!
I am just going to whet your appetite with a few items.
Now, come back on Thursday to find out the story behind so many of the beautiful items in
Designer's Showroom.


  1. You and several other of the ladies have made me realize that I need to expand my horizons when it comes to squash! Butternut squash with butter and brown, that's something I think I'd LOVE! Awesome answer to #3! I'm right there with you on that one!

  2. We matched for the song Happy Days on question #4! Aren't you just nearly dancing in your seat, and tapping your feet, just hearing it?! I am! ~tina

  3. I hadn't tried many squashes until this year. I am enjoying spaghetti squash and recently enjoyed some butternut squash....yum! Those are great theme songs. I think that today with the FF of DVR's we don't enjoy them like we use to when we had to listen to them.

  4. This is such a neat little "getting acquainted" meme...Love it. I'm gonna have to give squash another try...maybe I'll end up liking it in my old age.

  5. I used to love The Big Valley! I don't remember the song, but I know I liked the show. Loved your answer to #3-AMEN!

  6. Great shows that you picked and I think the Archie comics were the only ones I read as well.

  7. Love love the squashes; Butternut and Acorn are my faves with plenty of butter, cinnamon, and sugar!
