Fibbing Friday — Feeling Blue

Fibbing FridayFrank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as host for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in your responses. Today is Di’s turn to host and here are her questions.

1. Why is Royal Blood considered blue?

Because red-blooded sounds too American and there is no such thing as royalty in America. (Well, at least until Donald Trump has attempted to declare himself king.)

2. What is a Blue Moon?

A brand of beer.
3. What was the song ‘Blue is the Color’ about?

The color blue. Duh!

4. What is meant by blue collar?

It’s when a man’s favorite shirt’s collar is so dirty and frayed that it makes its owner feel blue at having to throw the shirt away.

5. What is a blue bonnet?

A brand of margarine.
6. What did Little Boy Blue play?

The blues on a saxophone, of course.

7. What changed from brown to blue according to the song?

The color of my girlfriend’s eyes after she put on her blue-tinted contact lenses.

8. Where will you find a Blue Nun?

On the label of a bottle of wine.

9. Why mustn’t you step on his Blue Suede Shoes?

You might turn them from blue suede to brown suede, especially if your feet are muddy.

10. What kind of bird has blue feet?

The bluebird of happiness.

    True about Blue Nun wine.
    Interesting that several people have come up with Blue Bonnet margarine, and alcoholic beverages for a Blue Moon. My favourite cocktail is a Blue Moon (cointreau, lime and lemonade).
    Thanks for playing along.

    Other than an impulse to find the Crystal Gayle song, while I do know the true answer (if that were, which it’s not, what number seven was meant to prompt) — and my enjoyment of the beautiful photo of the blue bird — number eight grabbed my attention.

    I read somewhere that it would be in France. I read elsewhere that it could be anywhere when a nun is on the street in that it pertains to a missionary stance. (And someone else just said it’s a fashion choice.)

    And there is this. I’m not going to try and restore the separation of the paragraphs.

    In the 1964 “Guide To The Catholic Sisterhoods in the U.S., by McCarthy, The Daughters of Mary of the Immaculate Conception once wore the royal blue habit, black veil, white sash and black rosary. The Sisters of Charity, begun in the 17th Century, use a blue gown and white cornette, now out of use. The Missionary Sisters Servants of The Holy Ghost wore a dark blue habit and veil. There are(or were) many colors other than black wool in use for the tunic or dress. Some Sisterhoods used brown, grey, white, dark red, deep purple, and one cloistered Order, the Sister Servants of the Holy Ghost of Perpetual Adoration wore a subdued pink habit with white cincture, never seen outside the cloister. The loss of all these holy sisterhoods, destroyed in only a few years after Vatican 2, from 1958 to 1970, never to be seen again, is another sign of the loss of charity and service in the world, and, more importantly, of holiness. This departure of the many Orders of men and women in the service of Christ’s Rule of holy dedication is also the sign of the loss of the True Catholicism, the eclipse of the Church, the suspension of temporal Jurisdiction of the hierarchy, and of all religious belief anywhere, all of which precedes the Last Days of the Catholic Church, which, of necessity, are only the Last Days of the world. Today, there are “Orders” which operate as corporations, not in accordance to the Rule to which their Order was once granted papal permission upon which to vow service and prayer. In that, the present members disobey, causing scandal and committing sacrilege, for they no longer represent the holy Rule of Christ’s service given by formal vows. In 2004, reported one of the last Sisterhoods, Charleston, W. Va. had shrunk to less than five members, and the bishop had ordered them to disband, took their $1,200,000 of earned funds for retirement and convent repairs, and threw them out into the streets to “work.” Work? So much for the “New Order Vatican 2 Church of Love.” Those nuns were the last of a million thrown out, nuns who had given the world their work, their teaching of children, their charity to the sick, to hospitals, their loyalty to Christ. Who will be the last Roman Catholic? Scripture, St. John, the Roman Church itself once and forever claims it is to be a remnant of those who will fight for it; of traditional Roman Catholic faithful.

      Of course, many of us may remember something else. Don’t try this at home.

      It’s an episode of
      The Flying Nun
      called “The New Habit”

        It’s hard to believe that this show was a popular sitcom that ran in prime time for three years.

          It’s kind of amazing to think of, isn’t it? It’s also amazing to remember women (nuns and ordinary women) walking around with their heads covered (in different ways). The episodes did well as re-runs too. I watched it.

          Apparently, the woman [Puerto Rican if I skimmed right] who wrote the book the show was based on was burried in 1999 at Arlington National Cemetery (in the form of ashes) where her husband, a colonel, had been buried.
