Friday Five - Before Your Time

Of television programs that aired before you were born, what’s your favorite? The Hunk has a season of Hogan's Heroes, which I like a lot.

What person of historical significance was from your neighborhood or city? Ettore Boiardi - but you probably know him as Chef Boyardee! He wasn't from there originally, though.

What’s a story that’s often been told about someone in your family in the years before you came along? My mother is afraid of heights, but apparently when she was little, she liked to climb trees. She would get herself stuck up a tree and cry and cry and cry until someone got a ladder and could get her down.

Which of previous generations’ dumb mistakes (in deed or thought) baffles you the most? The idea that markets will perpetually continue to turn greater and greater profits. And then, the fact that people fell for it again! (Though that's not a previous generation, really.)

What aspect of life in the good old days would you love to see a return to? Oh, that's an EASY one: narrower hips! *grin*

Didja see Tara R.'s review of "Hogan's Heroes" in my Take Another Look Thursday"? She and I OBVIOUSLY are a smidge older than y'all--but only a smidge, hear? You should consider contributing to TALT before you get into Full Schoolyear Mode! BTW, don't forget today's Silly Sunday Sweepstakes!! I've got a SWEET snap for you to caption!
