A New Garbage Disposal, Doris Day, and Please Don't Eat The Daisies

Yes, these three things will always be
linked in my mind.
I was very young when I first saw 
Doris Day in Please Don't Eat The Daisies
and when Kate Mackay needed to shop
at Macy's for a new garbage disposal
I knew then and there that when I grew up
 I would have a garbage disposal too.
Of course I had no idea what a garbage
 disposal was, but I knew I would want one.
I would also eat eggs benedict for lunch
as she did, even though I had no idea
what they were either and the thought of
 anything with eggs sounded yucky!
Never the less I would do all those
wonderful things when I grew up.
So when Larry determined that we needed a new garbage disposal
I was reminded of my young girl's 
Bucket List.
In honor of this we rented the DVD of 
Please Don't Eat The Daisies
I got to enjoy her renovate that huge 
fixer-upper all over again and remember
 how I was so awed by it all.
(living room before)
(living room after)
A true metamorphosis!
I was a big Doris Day fan.
Click on Hooked On Houses for lots of great
 pictures from this movie's sets. 

Whatever will be, will be. 
Que sera sera.........


  1. That makes me want to rent the movie too. I loved Doris Day growing up too. So glad that we got to try garbage disposals and eggs benedict - love them both. Clever MM!

  2. This is a great post. I only recently watched the movie after I checked it out of the library. I love Doris Day movies, and this one was a winner.

  3. I love Hooked on Houses and all the movie houses she shows! The lamps are great in the photo above!

  4. New follower. Saw your blog post title on another blog and had to hop over! Would love a follow back if you like! I love Doris Day!
    I wish she would do something with betty white!

  5. So funny Rita May, how you loved Doris Day to want a garbage disposal! I know what you mean, young girls those days we loved whatever was for the home, I thought it'll be great to be washing my dishes in the dishwasher WHEN I GET MARRIED!! Great post with Doris Day...did you know she just did a new record at 87?! Wish I had it! I love that movie, I usually buy vintage movies to collect, they're $1,50 here! I know, I know...! Have a great week.

  6. Ohh, I must check out that movie!

  7. That movie is just a *dream*!! I also grew up with Miss Day's movies, and wanted to live in NYC, frequent the theater and the 'smart' restaurants she did, date handsome men like Rock Hudson [no snide comments, please :)] and have one of those enormous apartments in a building with a doorman - in Manhattan, of course!!

    Today I love to visit NYC - from my home in the Santa Cruz Mountains of Northern California, where we don't have a garbage disposal (we compost), my honey isn't movie star handsome but he still makes my heart flutter after 26 years of marriage, and the only greeters we have are our two cats.

    We also have a satellite dish, and whenever there's a Doris Day movie on TCM, I settle in to watch it and dream a little.

  8. Hi Rita May,
    I found your blog through Between Naps on the Porch.
    Its a pleasure to meet you..
    I adore Doris Day and Please Don't eat the daisy was one of my favorite movies growing up..funny thing too, my sister and I still say
    Que Sera Sera and sing the song...I loved your post so much!
    I have become your newest follower.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

    What is DMT?
    Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a powerful psychedelic drug, and a type of tryptamine alkaloid. It is a naturally occurring substance, found in various plants and animals, and in small quantities in the human brain, where its function is unknown. DMT is famous for its power. Though the psychedelic trip it creates only lasts 5 to 30 minutes when smoked, the effect is profound and remarkable, with the feeling that the user is transported to a completely different place, immersed in kaleidoscopic sounds and images. In its pure form, the drug is a white to yellow crystalline solid.

    DMT has been consumed throughout history and into prehistory by indigenous peoples, especially in South America, where it is consumed during shamanic rituals and called ayhuasca. This is done by combining plant material that contains it with a monoamine oxide inhibitor, a special chemical that allows the drug to avoid digestion by the stomach and reach the bloodstream. Evidence of DMT consumption by indigenous peoples in South America stretches back to at least 2130 BC. A pipe made from puma bone of that age was tested positive for the substance. Smoking it would give the users visions and feelings that they associated with magical sources, putting them into contact with “spirits” they could consult on matters of plants, disease, etc.
