Random October Day 1979


Wanna play ‘Questions?’


I’ll start us off….


What’s your name and sign?

My name is Gwin and I’m a Capricorn.

What’s your nickname?

My Daddy calls me Doola Bug.

Nobody else calls me that though.

Only my Daddy.

Do you have a boyfriend or a girlfriend?

No, but I like a boy named—-

Actually, I like another boy named —- too.

I can’t tell you who they are because they might see this.

They don’t know.

I want it to stay a secret.


What’s your favorite color?

My favorite color is blue.

Do you have any sisters and brothers?

I have one little brother who gets on my nerves.

He always in the way!

Where are you from?

I’m from here.

I was born at the old University Hospital.

Do you have any pets?

I have two Dobermans, one name is Princess and one name is Demon.


Princess is the meanest.

Demon is the nicest.

I bet you didn’t guess that right!

Who is your favorite singer?

My favorite singer is Michael Jackson.

I want to marry him but Daddy say he too old.

Daddy say he’ll be using a walker by time I’m old enough to get married.

Oh and I like another singer name Prince.

He sing that song “Soft and Wet.”

And, he kinda look like a very pretty lady.

But not Michael, he look like a real man.

Oh yeah, there’s one more singer I gotta tell you about.

Her name is Teena Marie and I love her.

She white but she sound like she black.

Ain’t that crazy?

What do you like to do for fun?

I like to climb trees and look at the stars at night.

I also like to go to the golf course with my Daddy and eat sandwiches and chips at the clubhouse.

Sometimes, I like to walk the fairway, look at the trees and put my feet in the sand trap.

The only thing I don’t like is you have to be quiet when they trying to putt or T-off.

Anyway, I’ve seen lots of deer and jack-rabbits out on the course.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be a meteorologist.

It didn’t take me long to learn how to spell that word because spelling is one of my best subjects.

Did you know that a meteorologist is just a fancy word for weatherman?

To me, it sound like somebody who studies meteors.

But it’s not.

I know all about the topic because I looked it up in an encyclopedia.

And because of that I already know how to look at the clouds and tell what the weather gonna be.

What’s your favorite cartoon?

My favorite cartoons are Looney Tunes, The Peanuts and I love Scooby Doo.

Oh yeah and I like Pink Panther, The Archies, Sabrina the Good Witch and I like Felix the Cat.

What’s your favorite food?

My favorite food is pizza, hamburgers, tacos and I like popcorn shrimp.

When we go to Red Lobster my Mama let me have a Sprite with cherries and an orange slice.

Sometimes they put a little umbrella in it.

It look like a grown person drink.

One time Daddy let me drink some coke he had in a cup.

Only it wasn’t just coke.

It was something else in it.

It tasted terrible so I spit it out.

He started laughing real loud.

Mama don’t know nothing about that.

Who is your favorite teacher?

My favorite teacher is Mrs. Scott.

She got the longest hair you ever saw but she keeps it back in a bun.

What are your favorite TV shows?

I like to watch Flip Wilson, Sanford and Son, Bewitched, Jeannie, and I like to watch Wonder woman, Bionic woman, Electric Company, Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers.

Oh and I like Mighty Isis and Shazaam.

Sometimes Mama let me stay up and watch Carol Burnett.

Harvey Korman is my favorite one!

I like when he dress up like a lady named Mother Marcus!

If it ain’t nothing else on TV, I’ll watch Hee-Haw.

Here’s a secret:  I like to watch The Lawrence Welk Show.

Don’t tell nobody about that.


Last night we watched the Great Pumpkin!

I love Charlie Brown.

But I can’t stand Lucy.

Do you play a instrument?

I play violin.

I made it as an alternate for all county Orchestra.

At the audition, I forget the rosin for my bow so my bow kept sliding off the string sounding like a cat.

That was dumb.

Uh oh…

I gotta go because me and my brother have to rake the grass so we can go to the fair tonight.

It was nice to meet you.

Don’t forget to write me back and tell me all your answers to my questions.

Before you go I want you to hear some of my favorite Michael Jackson songs:

And I like this one too:

  1. Hello Lady G, it’s me Marie and I’m a Libran. Can you come out to play Lady G? I got some cheeseburgers and cherries in my pocket and you can have some. What you say Lady G – you want to be a meteorologist – does that mean you want to study meat? Is that why you like cheeseburgers so much? OK that’s enough of me trying to be a little girl asking you out to play and not doing it very well. Grown-up now: This is charming Lady G. It made me want to be small again …:)

  2. Awww, too fun!! My name is Paula and I’m an Aquarius!! “I was born in the sign of water, and it’s there that I feel my best… ” 😀

    Lawrence Welk, Carol Burnette, Flip Wilson, Hee Haw… I’m right there with you!!

    I too wanted to marry Michael… or Donny Osmond. Either/or I would’ve been happy! Puppy Love or Ben… hmmmm… Of course with Michael, we could Blame It On The Boogie! But now I’m starting to think about Heartbeat, It’s a Lovebeat… 😀

    Loved this Lady G! What a great post!!

  3. Lady G- this post had me smiling from beginning to end. I know we would’ve been friends! Your answers to the questions sounded just like your younger self. All of those tv shows brought me back. Bionic Woman, Carol Burnett, Sanford and Son and my man, Flip Wilson! I loved Geraldine. The only time I watched Lawrence Welk and Hee Haw was when I was at my grandparents house. Off the Wall- great album. Thanks for brightening up my Wednesday.

    1. Hey Susan!
      It was so much fun doing that post. I am happy to know that you caught my attempt to ‘speak’ like I did when I was a kid–some of that was poetic license because my English was a little bit better than I portrayed 🙂
      BTW, Geraldine is one of my many spirit guides! LOL!!!
      Oh, did you just throw shade to Lawrence Welk and Hee-Haw? ROTFLMAO!!!
      So happy to brighten your day 🙂

    1. Oh thank you so much!
      I’m glad you liked it!
      I recently read and ‘liked’ your ‘about.’ Congratulations on your recent accomplishment 🙂
      BTW, my undergraduate degree is in Political Science –so we have a little something in common.
      Hope to see you back again 🙂

    I don’t have time to answer all the questions, but I will answer the first one: I’m T. Wayne and I’m a Cancer. (Float…float on….)

    Very lovely post, Twin! You know you got me with those Michael Jackson songs, right? Only needed Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough though…

        1. Yep! We gotta have fun with it 🙂
          I’m glad you liked it!
          In the post, I answered the questions exactly the way I would have answered them if they had been asked face to face.
          All factual 🙂

          Whhhhhaaaaattttt no way. Wow that was not the response I anticipated. Bossy? Yes! Spoiled? Yes! Y’all see this? Brotha Ron I need help again man. Maybe Ron will charge me for protection. “How to Get away from Lady G” new TV show comes on before scandal in Thursday and I’m the star of the show

        2. LOL!!
          Tareau, now what would you do if I didn’t mess with you and instead said something like, “Thank you for reading.”
          Now that wouldn’t even sound right coming from me to you 🙂
          I just GOTTA give you a hard time!
          It’s what I do.
          By the way, one day I was looking at some comments on your blog and somebody asked Dave, “Who is Tareau?” and Dave said, “He’s my cousin, Why?”
          Boy I hollered!
          I said, “Cali bout to come out the box on somebody bout family.”
          I would have responded the same way Dave did if somebody had asked me about Ron.

    1. Hi Van!
      Thank you! It’s good to see you. I need to double check something because I think you must have fallen out of my feed. That same thing happened with T. Wayne.
      I’ll get that straight ASAP 🙂
      Have a great day 🙂
