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: Black Magic Woman (1970)
1) Black is this week's signature color because Friday, November 23, was "Black Friday," when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any "Black Friday" bargains?
I stay away from stores on Black Friday like the plague.
The last thing in the world I want to do is fight with 1,000 other people
for something I probably don't need anyway.
Sometimes, but not lately. I use the cart as a walker
instead of taking my walker into the store, so I need it to hang on to and
if I return it, I am in danger of falling on my way back to the car.
Walt. We have been married 53 years and I can probably
count on the fingers of one hand the gifts I've given him that he has
actually used. But it's not just me. His mother always
gave him clothes that I would find years later still in the box under the
bed. Last year I bought him wine and I think he actually drank it.
Not a big football fan. I chatted with my
granddaughter, who chose "Bridge to Terabithia" as our next book club book,
so I spent the afternoon reading the book and then watching the movie.
I am now all cried out.
I don't usually, but I did this year. I liked it better
when it was a real parade and not a series of musical performances
with a bit of parade thrown in for good measure.
Well, the president said that he gave thanks for himself, and
I certainly did not count THAT in my things to be thankful for. I was
thankful for a nice, low key Thanksgiving brunch with my mother at Atria--if
she is around next year, it will be her 100th Thanksgiving. I'm
thankful that my health is improving, and I am always thankful for everyone
in my family, especially Ned this year, since he has been so helpful to us.
I did not set a Thanksgiving table this year,
but when I do, yes it does. (Except the salad for is usually used for
I cannot envision Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie. It
is such an integral art of my Thanksgiving that I made a pie for Walt
and me, since we were going out to friends' house for dinner and I didn't
know if we would get pumpkin pie or not. As it turned out, we left
early so did not have any of the pumpkin pie, but came home and ate the pie
I had made. Skip dessert? Surely you jest!!!
It depends. I
love chile rellenos but I'm kind of particular about them, so unless I know
that they are going to be GOOD chile rellenos, I will order a taco or
burrito. I frequently try flautas, hoping to recreate the wonderful
flautas we used to have in Berkeley, but so far have not found anybody
who makes them the way I like them (that includes our Mexican daughter, who
owns a Mexican restaurant!)
