Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
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.

I can't think of anything recent, but when we were getting married, 52 years ago, I was thrilled to get a gift from my favorite uncle, whom I worshipped. This would be a beloved gift all of my marriage. Only when I opened it it was a silver bowl that was tarnished and beat up. His wife was an alcoholic and my mother told me he would often give her money to buy something and she would go to a second hand store, buy something very cheap and use the rest of the money to buy alcohol.
