Are you KIDDING ME??? It’s the end of March already?
No. Where does the time go?
My two University of California students had Spring Break last week, so for a week I had a houseful of delightful young adults, both men and women. My daughter is home from school, and all the young ladies are now twenty-one, something that makes my knees weak, considering they went out bar-hopping last night, where once they curled up in Little Mermaid sleeping bags for sleepovers. Sighs.
My Very Own Child, who tops out at about five feet, texted she had two Fireballs and an Adios Motherf*cker, the very same drink my husband ordered the night we met. How did she even manage to stay in a chair?
Last weeks question about Rocky Horror, got some very fun responses. Didn’t we all want to be someone in that Tacky Flick?
The winner of last week’s Sunday Brunch prize was GK Parker!!!
This weeks Question: Which Rocky and Bullwinkle Character are you? garnered far fewer takers. Why? I wonder. Are my writer pals simply too young to have enjoyed R&B for what it was? Fun and funny and silly and even — at times — wise?
Rocky and His Friends was a variety show cartoon which included Rocky and Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-right, Peabody’s Improbably History, and my fave… Fractured Fairy tales. And yes, I always wanted to be the little old fairy at the beginning whose wand explodes into fireworks before she gets squished into a book.

Let me know if you liked Rocky and Bullwinkle. Did you get tired of poor Nell getting tied to the tracks? Did you ever hope Dudley would get a clue and FINALLY ask Nell for her hand in marriage? Did you want to go in the Way Back Machine with Mr. Peabody and Sherman?
I did. And so did my guest, Cynnara Tregarth!
I am a cartoon fanatic. I love cartoons. This one is still my favourite— I love watching them whenever I can. Though my heritage is mixed, and does include the nefarious Boris and Natasha… I’ve always been linked more to Mr. Peabody and Sherman. *sighs* The question is– am I the one who gets patted on the head… or the genius in fur? This is the question often asked by those who know me best. I’m not telling. 😀 What is funny, my male knows these characters– in fact, we often talk about the Fractured Fairytales and how we enjoy them and Commander McBragg (he says I should write a story about a guy like him– revisionist history).
Yet when it all comes down to it– let’s be honest– we all wanna be Rocky, the Flying Squirrel. Who wouldn’t? *breaks out the aviator glasses and jacket* I’m ready, Bullwinkle!

I always liked the Bullwinkle cartoons (my mom’s a big Jay Ward fan), but I admit that I never really “got” them, except for the Wossamotta U episode. I actually relate more to Super Chicken from Ward’s George of the Jungle series…the theme song line “you knew the job was dangerous when you took it” is so relevant to so many parts of life!
