9 June, 2018

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: (There's) No Gettin' Over Me (1981)
 
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Ronnie Milsap sings about how worrisome it can be when you realize you forgot to pay a bill. It's happened to all of us, hasn't it? Tell about about a time you accidentally missed a payment.

Last month, actually.  I didn't exactly miss it.  I paid it through PayPal and for some reason, the payment didn't go through, so I ended up with a service charge.

2) He also references a dream that keeps him awake. Do you have any recurring dreams?

I rarely have dreams period, let alone recurring ones.

3) He sings about the face you see in the crowd. Tell us about someone you see regularly, but don't really know.

My mother is in a senior facility and there are a lot of people I see regularly but don't know at all, especially the ladies who have dogs and are often sitting in the lobby visiting with each other.

4) He mentions the book that you just can't put down. What's the last book that you finished?

"The Burning Room" by Michael Connelly was the last audio book we finished and "White Houses," by Amy Bloom was the last "in my hands" book (a book about Eleanore Roosevelt and Lorena Hickock)

5) Ronnie Milsap is a big fan of new technology, and believes the advancements make both his professional and personal lives easier. What about you? Do you embrace new technology? Or do you long for the good old days, when we weren't so connected to personal devices?

I'm not as wedded to technology as many are (I can go several days without looking at my cell phone, for example) I can also go for...oh...hours without sitting at the computer.  But I definitely would not like to go back to the good old days.

6) As a child, Ronnie used to surreptitiously listen to late night radio, especially gospel broadcasts. When you were a kid, what rule did you break again and again?

I was a good girl.  But I did read under the covers at night and listen to the radio very softly sometimes.

7) Country star Blake Shelton says Ronnie Milsap was a big influence on his music. Do you watch Blake on The Voice?

No.  I don't watch The Voice.

8) In May, Ronnie appeared at the Choctaw Casino in Grant, OK. Do you enjoy games of chance?

Hate them.  I am neither skillful nor lucky.  I love card games and other games, but games of chance, no way.

9) Random question -- When did you last "do it yourself" and repair something around the house or yard?

Hmmmm.....I can't think of anything.  At least not anything in recent memory.

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

Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear -- it wasn't me! --
so if you don't see your comment, it's because it's awaiting approval.  Sorry 'bout that!
