On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Saturday 9

Linking up with Samantha today for Saturday: 9 meme with fun Jeannie "genie" questions.

I dream of Jeannie Theme (1965)

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here

1) Jeannie was memorably discovered on the beach in an ornate bottle. Have you ever brought a souvenir home from the beach? (It doesn't have to be a genie. A shell or a stone will do.)

Sand from the beach at the Mediterranean Sea when we visited Israel. We also cruised the Mediterranean when we went to Greece.

2) Major Anthony Nelson, the man who released Jeannie from her bottle, was an astronaut. When you were a kid, did you dream of being an astronaut when you grew up?


3) Upon discovering Jeannie, Major Nelson's first wish was that she could speak/understand English so they could communicate. If you found a genie, what would your first wish be?

To magically transport us and all our belongings to a smaller home.

4) Major Nelson's best friend was fellow astronaut Major Healey. Where did you meet your best friend?

I have several close friends, but the best girlfriend ever, I met at our church.

5) This theme song was written by Hugo Montenegro, who is better known for the music he wrote for a pair of Clint Eastwood movies (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars). Do you have a favorite Clint Eastwood movie?


6) The last episode of the series was titled, "My Master, The Chili King." What ingredients make up your favorite chili recipe? 

Two Alarm Chili! It's easy and everything I need for chili is there except hamburger and tomato sauce.

7) Jeannie was played by Barbara Eden, who was born in Tuscon, Arizona. Summer in Tuscon can get very hot, with the mercury often reaching 100ยบ. What's your favorite season?

Autumn. I love the cool, crisp days that follow the heat of the summer and all the things that come with Autumn. Leaves turning brilliant colors, jeans, sweatshirts, holidays, soups, Thanksgiving, all those things speak of warmth..

8) Anthony Nelson was played by Larry Hagman, who went on to play the villainous JR on the popular Dallas. Can you think of anything else Dallas is known for?

Tom Landry, Dallas Cowboys, Roger Staubach.

9) In the autumn of 1965, just weeks after I Dream of Jeannie premiered, St. Louis' famous Gateway Arch was completed. An estimated 4 million tourists visit the Arch every year. Do you have any summer vacation plans? 

We have already taken a cruise this year. Our next plan is simple road trip to visit family and go to Branson. Maybe later in the year we will plan something for our anniversary.

I love autumn too, I'm already looking forward to it!! Would love to visit Branson, we talk about it, but that's about it. Oh well, maybe someday.

I like autumn too, but I think Spring is still my favorite. I enjoyed your answers and I need to look for that chili seasoning! We like ours spicy.

I doubt I ever get to take a cruise, but I hear they are awesome, so long as nobody gets norovirus!

As a kid, I loved summer, but now I prefer fall too!

My aunt has been to Branson and reports it's the perfect, no-stress vacation.

Simply Linda said...

I am a Autumn and Winter person...no summer for me, smiles. Enjoyed your post, smiles.

I remember that show. It was so cute and I read later the controversy about Barbara Eden's belly button. Autumn is also my favorite month. The only part of Dallas I have seen is the Dallas/Ft Worth airport. No matter where I fly, I always seem to have to change planes there!
