27 February 2016

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!


Saturday 9: The Times of Your Life (1976)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is all about memories. How far back can you remember? What's your earliest memory?
In unsure which came first, but I can remember asking to lie in my sister's crib and drink out of her bottle.  I was 4-1/2 when she was born (and it wasn't worth it, I learned!).  I also vaguely remember riding on a train with my mother to Pasadena.  I might have been 2 at the time.

2) The first line is "Good morning, yesterday." What do you remember about yesterday morning?
I took my 97 year old mother on a "blossom drive" around town so she could get out of her building (which she never leaves) and see some spring trees and flowers.

3) This song was originally a 60-second jingle, featured in a commercial for Kodak film. Do you ever use film? Or are all your pictures digital?
I haven't used film since I got my first digital camera

4) Who took the most recent photo of you?
Walt took a picture of our Brasilian daughter Sonia and me when we went to lunch earlier this week.

5) This week's featured artist, Paul Anka, was born in Canada and enjoyed appearing in a made-for-TV Perry Mason movie with fellow Canadian, Raymond Burr. Do you enjoy courtroom dramas?
I fell in love with courtroom dramas with Perry Mason and have enjoyed them throughout my life.

6) At 15, Anka won a supermarket contest by collecting the most Campbell soup can wrappers. The prize was a trip to New York. Do you enter contests and sweepstakes? Play the lottery?
No.  The only contest I ever won was a writing contest when I was in high school.  I won 5th place, which was a one-way trip on a luxury liner to Los Angeles (overnight).  I never felt any pride in it because the essay I wrote was really written by the nun who was helping me.

7) This year Paul Anka performed throughout Florida (Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Clearwater and Fort Myers). The Sunshine State is a popular vacation destination. Do you have a favorite spot in Florida?
I have never visited Florida.

8) In 1976, the year this song was on the charts, an earthquake hit China. Have you ever experienced an earthquake?
LOL.  I was born and raised in San Francisco--what do you think???

9) Random question: Do you know CPR?
Only what I've seen on TV.  I've never taken a course



I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
