4 February 2017Welcome 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: Some Guys Have All the Luck (1984)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) Do you consider yourself lucky?
I like to share the story of
when Walt and I lost all the money we had in the slot machines at CalNeva
Lodge on the California-Nevada border (the place that Frank Sinatra used
to own). Fortunately we were playing the penny machines and only
lost 20 cents.
There's a football game on?? (I'm
not a big football fan, though I know there will be a football game
party going on at my son's house in Santa Barbara.
Most of my friends know everything about
me, but people who read this journal may not remember that I used to be
a cake decorator.
I got all inerested in the period of Henry
VIII. Don't know why. It was after I watched the first time
PBS did The Six Wives of Henry VIII. I recently saw a
special on Hampton Court, which was Henry's favorite of his castles and
remembered visiting there.
6) Rod met his current wife as the result of a dare. Penny Lancaster, then in her 20s, spotted the decades-older celebrity in a bar and only approached him because her friends bet her she didn't have the guts to talk to him. Are you, like Penny, vulnerable to peer pressure? Can your friends talk you into doing things you might not otherwise do?9) The lyrics mention that "some guys do nothing but complain." Who do you know who is like that? Do you have a friend, relative or coworker who just always seems to find fault?
It's been so long since I had
frends around who might do that. i suppose you could say that Char
talked us into each of our cruises...which we were happy about. In
my old age, I am better about saying "no" when I don't really want to do
I"m sure it was not the first movie I ever
saw, but the one I always think of when I think of my "first movie" was
Show Boat, which my grandmother took me too. I remember
that we arrived in the middle of the movie and stayed to see it again.
I loaned money to a friend, figuring I'd
probaby never see it (or her) again. I was right.
I can't think of anybody.
Note from the hospital yesterday: Why do people DO that? A girl came in and came to the information desk and said "I have a doctor's appointment. Where do I go?" I asked her doctor's name, which she didn't know. I asked what department her doctor was in and she didn't know that either. She thought my computer had a list of everybody who had an appointment at any of the offices in the three medical center buildings. She did finally remember her doctor's name and I was able to help her, but she's not the first who wandered into the hospital looking for a doctor and had no helpful information to give me.

I thought I might go fishing in our back yard
I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
