Here Comes Peter Cottontail (1950)
1) Which do you prefer: colored hard-boiled eggs, chocolate marshmallow eggs, or plastic eggs with coins inside?
I prefer eating the marshmallow eggs. ;-)2) What's your favorite color of Peeps (yellow, purple, or pink)?
I just had a bagel with Swiss and provolone cheese. Had jelly beans for breakfast.4) This song was introduced by country singer Gene Autry and it's still a favorite. Please share some of the lyrics. (And you're on your own; Sam didn't include a link to the song this week.)
5) Gene Autry was so popular that a town in Oklahoma named itself for him. Have you ever been to Oklahoma?
"Here comes Peter CottontailThat's from memory, so I've no clue how accurate it is.
Hopping down the bunny trail,
Easter's on its way..."
I have. Well, I've driven through the eastern part of it. Twice.6) In addition to singing, Mr. Autry made 93 cowboy movies. What's the last movie you saw?
Uh...hmmmm. The Hunger Games (the first one), maybe, on TV? Several months ago?7) He and his horse Champion also had a TV show. Can you name another famous horse?
Trigger, of course.8) Gene Autry also recorded "Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer," and it was, of course, wildly popular, too. Who is your favorite recording artist?
Melissa Etheridge, I guess. I like her music, and really respect the way she's tried to be famous without being idiotic.9) Back to the holiday celebration at hand -- Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated?
WARM WEATHER after a perfectly awful winter this year. Also, naps.
