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: G.I. Blues (1960)
Memorial Day is a federal holiday that honors men and women who served and died in the United States Armed Forces. We want to make sure that message is not lost this weekend.
1) Are you a veteran? Are there veterans in your family? Do you know anyone who is active military? (We are grateful and want to hear about it.)
I am not a
veteran. Walt was in the Air Force reserves long ago. My
father was 4F so could not enlist. I had (at least) two uncles who
fought in WWII. One of them told
me his experiences as a prisoner of war in Germany for several months.
Our good friend Kevin, who is part of our Pinata family, has been in the
military for many years.
Oh good lord,
what doesn't ache? Nothing seriously, but it seems that the
older you get, the more aches and pains you have.
There are several friends I miss
all the time. I rarely mention my former co-worker, Melody, who
was such a close friend when we worked together, but she moved across
the country and over the years we have fallen apart for many reasons.
But I miss her often.
potato salad. Nobody makes it like he did (not even me) and I
haven't had it since he died in 1987. Today, my favorite is
probably fried chicken and/or stuffed eggs.
butter pecan. I'm wishy washy on cone vs. cup. Depends on
remember. I am rarely in a situation where it is necessary.
I last swam
in a hotel rooftop swimming pool in Italy in 2009.
Today was kind of a cool day. There will be a fan on tomorrow,
based on weather predictions.
I've never been obsessed with success. I think I have had a successful low-key life, have been married nearly 53 years, have raised children who are all good people, who have become good friends of mine and who are happy with where they are in life. That defines success for me.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear
