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!

Not really. I've had them, but they are not a favorite.
Aug 25 1968: When Ned opened his xylophone, he lost all interest in other boxes and left the opening to more capable hands, while he played with his new toy.
Ned is certainly a music lover. If no record is playing and the TV is off, he runs over, pointing to the record cabinet and when he catches my attention, points to record player and starts bouncing up and down. He's very good about not hauling records out any more and seems interested in the record cabinet only as a source of music.
51 years old today and he hasn't changed
much!!! Happy birthday to my favorite enforcer.

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