|On your mark, Get set,|
I don't do BLACK FRIDAY or Brown Thursday, can't stand that stores opened Thanksgiving day. Get your Store coupon! I have/will order on line again this year.
2) Legend has it that Black Friday began as a neighborhood phenomenon among storeowners in Philadelphia back in the early 1960s. What else comes to mind when you think of Philly?
Benjamin Franklin, The Liberty Bell, and Philly cheese steak sandwiches.
3) Feasting and football are also popular Thanksgiving weekend pastimes. Do your Thursday-Sunday plans include pigging out or watching a game?
We will work on the left-overs, but won't be watching games.
4) At Thanksgiving dinners, Crazy Sam's homemade gravy is always a hit. (Probably because she's so generous with the cognac, which gives the gravy a nutty taste.) Do you have a signature dish?
My signature dish is Grandma's Pink Goop. My grandmother always brought a strawberry jello whipped up with a quart of vanilla ice cream to every family dinner including the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving family feast. One time, when I was about 10 or 11, I asked someone to hand me the Pink Goop and the name stuck. My niece and nephew and kids always ask me if I brought the goop?
5) Among the biggest the Black Friday advertisers are Target, Kohl's, Macy's and Best Buy. If you could have a $100 gift card to any one of those stores, which would you choose?
Actually, I would prefer a Ross or TJ Maxx card.
6) You're in a public restroom that offers both paper towels and a hot air hand dryer. Which one do you choose? I prefer paper towels.
7) While Back to Black is the best-selling Amy Winehouse CD, her first was called Frank, named for her hero, Frank Sinatra. Tell us about someone you inspires you. I am inspired by folks who give their time and money to help those less fortunate. It makes me want to be more charitable.
8) Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist?
I am more of an optimist, Mr BC is the closet pessimist in the family.
9) Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone (a verbal conversation -- not an exchange of texts)?
I speak to my grandson, Caшa almost every morning on Skype. At almost 2 years, he is up early with his mama and as soon as he sees her phone....he shouts out Baba....Deda....Serbian for Grandma and Grandpa. We call ourselves the English words....but in his own way Baba is easier to say. Dad speaks Serbian, mama and we speak English and he mostly speaks a language all his own. Ding Dong is open/close, elephant is bam bam as is most other large animals and his scooter is Brummmm brummm. We get together for five or ten minutes and get lots of smiles and loves. He tries to hug us thru the screen. So we ask him to hug mama or his monkey or bunny, who are always close by. It brings me real joy and I will be available till he gets too grown up and busy like older grandson Лука. Dec 17th can't come too soon I miss those boys.
