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: Heartbreak Hotel (1956)
1) Elvis checked in to the hotel at the end of Lonely Street. Where was the last hotel or motel you stayed at?
It's been a
year or two. We stayed at one of the chain motels (I can't
remember which) in Salinas on our way to Santa Barbara. We
don't usually make that trip in 2 days, but I wanted to stop and go
through the Steinbeck museum.
Mildly uncomfortable. I
don't panic like any of the medical definitions, but I'd rather be
on the edge of a crowd than in the middle of one.
Often. Most of my slacks are black and many of my tops are black as well. It's not a "signature look," just what I seem to keep buying.
4) The song was written by Mae Boren Axton, who said it was inspired by the story of an anonymous young man's suicide in a hotel. She said she read in The Miami Herald that the John Doe left behind a note that said, "I walk a lonely street." What's the last note you handwrote? (Hopefully it was more upbeat.)
I sent a post card to my
granddaughters from my teddy bear, Benny. He is traveling
around the country and this was a post card from a bovine jamboree
remember. It would have been a very long time ago, since my father
has been dead 30 years and my mother's brain has been mush for about
My father wanted me to study teaching in college because it was an "easy job," where you only worked until 3 each day, had 3 months off in the summer, and made a great salary. I'm glad I didn't listen to him!
7) There are many stories about Elvis' manager, Col. Tom Parker. One anecdote, about his career before Elvis, has the Colonel painting sparrows yellow so he could sell them as canaries. Have you ever been ripped off?
thing I was ripped off was for a gadget that will allow me to
download photos from my cell phone to my computer,
only when I got it, it does not work with an iPhone 7 (which the ads
say that it does). Naturally, there is no response to a
request about returning it. Anybody want it?
chicken two nights ago. I cook a lot of poultry, but haven't
tried peacock yet. I wonder if it tastes like chicken.
Sure. We're old and forgetful. I have two friends I have lunch with regularly and I would not feel uncomfortable reminding either of them that they owe me for the last time (and hope they would do the same for me!)
