Funky Twenty-five

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim’s meme in our “Previous Victims” widget. (It’s our way of saying “Thanks!”) Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Cheers to all of us thieves!!!

Hawaii Five-O

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: Hawaii Five-O (1969)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) This is the theme from the TV show that originally ran from 1968 to 1980 and is on now again with a new cast. Were you/are you a fan? I did watch the original show (not from the beginning, towards the end. I have yet to see the new version. I may have to binge watch if its on Netflix.

2) On both shows, Five-O is an elite police task force led by Det. Lt. Steve McGarrett. Who is your favorite TV cop? Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) from Chicago P.D.

3) On both shows, the part of Danny “Danno” Williams was played by a second generation performer. (James MacArthur was the son of Broadway legend Helen Hayes; Scott Caan is the son of movie actor James Caan.) If you followed one of your parents into their chosen profession, what would you be doing? I would be a cosmetologist

4) Both shows are filmed in Hawaii, the boyhood home of President Obama. Have any of our 44 Presidents hailed from your state? Gerald R. Ford

5) Kona coffee is made from beans cultivated on the Big Island of Hawaii. Are you a big coffee drinker? nope

6) This week’s song was written by the late Morton Stevens. In addition to composing for TV shows, he was the musical director for a group of entertainers known in the 60s as “The Rat Pack.” Can you name any “Rat Pack” members? I can not

7) This week’s featured band, The Ventures, began when Don Wilson purchased a used car from Bob Bogle. During negotiations, they discovered a shared passion for playing guitar. Did you buy your current ride new or used? Did the negotiations go smoothly? Used, and it went smoothly.

8) The year this song was popular, 1969, is when Donald and Doris Fisher opened a San Francisco clothing store called The Gap. Today there are more than 3,200 Gap locations. Do you shop at The Gap or I do not.

9) Random question: What’s on your Saturday to-do list? shower, errands: get things for my craft room, rearrange in there with the new desk/table I am hoping to find or make, do some light cleaning in the house, make dinner and veg for the night with the hubby.

I have been looking at short hairstyles on Pinterest for some time now. I have so many pinned, and they all look alike, just styled several different ways. Usually when I get in the chair, I chicken out and just get it cut the same old way. But not today! I was so glad that my favorite hair gal is back from Florida. I had all of the photos of the styles saved on my phone, and flipped through them, saying what I liked about each of them and told her to have at it!

I love what she did with my hair!!

I see that my friend Danielle just wrote up a post about making a change in her hairstyle as well. And linked up with this hair tutorial from A Cup Full of Sass, with exactly how I have been wanting to do my hair as well!

So now I need to go out and get some “Big Sexy Hair” products!

For Today… April 20th, 2015

Outside my window… Its gray overcast and drizzling. I want to go back to Southern Ohio to where things were sunny, green and blooming everywhere!!

I am thinking… that I need to make an appointment to get get a pedicure. I know that I can do my own nails, but I need a little TLC of a pedicure spa.

I am thankful… that this weekend didn’t end on a sad note. My friends brother inlaw, who was very sick last week, made a complete recovery and is now home from the hospital.

I am wearing… a gray hoodie and black yoga pants

I am creating… I am still working on the same crochet projects.

I am going… to do some baking today

I am wondering… why some people can be so blind, or be snowed over with things! One by one..slowly they start to open their eyes and see the real truth.

I am reading… right now, I am not reading anything.

I am hoping… that it really doesn’t snow this week

I am learning… Still learning the keyboard

In my garden… I have flowers blooming… guess I had planted some tulip bulbs in the past. These haven’t sprouted in the last few years! Weird! I need to get out there and do some weeding and figure out what I want to do in there.

One of my favorite things… New car fresheners. I love getting into my car after it has sat for a few days and its filled with whatever freshener I have in there. Right now its green apple! Yum!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ grocery shopping, laundry, housework
Tuesday ~ breakfast plans with a couple of friends, then off to the movies with my youngest for his birthday
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ grocery shopping,
Saturday ~ working around the house and spending time with my hubby
Sunday ~ church and home to veg

From the board room…I am going through a scarf and maxi skirts phase. I love this one, from my Cute clothes, shoes, accesories board
