Von Trapper Keeper
The Sound of Music was on non-cable tv tonight and since it's one of the two namesakes of this weblog, I had to give it a good critical look so that I could write the definitive post. But, naturally, I switched the channel to catch the end of the Giants-Chiefs game during a commercial and missed the Maria Von Trapp's Meadow scene. Classic. Anyways, I'm not sure I've ever seen the movie in its entirety. A little heavier than I thought. I don't remember the whole Anschluss bit. Not exactly raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Also, am I the only one who thinks that Mother Abbess' version of "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" upstaged all Julie Andrews' bits? She brought the house down. That's about all I have to say about the movie. This blog's more about her meadow anyways.
As for the Trapper Keeper, well, what can I say. Everyone loves a good TK. As a Mead product, it put food on the Nolan Family Table. In Googleimaging "trapper keeper", I came across the following:
The Keeper. Apparently, according to "the Tightwad Gazette: 'The Keeper® seems to me to be the most appropriate option for most women, especially women who work outside the home.'" I have no further comment on this.
The Merrillville School Supply List. Why is it that only 3rd Grade Honors and 4th Grade Non-Honors students are allowed, in fact required, to have Trapper Keepers while the rest of the school is forbidden from having Trapper Keepers?
