20 October 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:  Sweet City Woman

Unfamiliar with this week's tune?  Hear it here.

1) The lyrics tell us the singer is on his way to catch a train and he really wants to be on time. When is the last time you were late for something?

I am usually obsessively on time so I can't remember the last time I was late.  sometimes I'm on time when I'm expected to be late and that can get embarrassing.

2) He sings he's on his way to meet a woman known for her macaroons. What's your favorite cookie?

Snickerdoodle, though I don't like the ones I've tried to make, so my favorite thing to make, cookie-wise, that actually turns out well, is shortbread.

3) His girlfriend's face is so pretty she lights up the city night. How many lights are in the room you're in? How many are switched on?

It's the middle of the day, so actually none, except the lights over my craft table, which are almost always on.

4) This is the rare top 40 tune that prominently features a banjo. Sam has always been crazy about the sound of a banjo. What sound makes you smile? (It doesn't have to be a musical instrument. Think bacon sizzling, church bells, etc.)

FWIW, I love a banjo too, though I would not say it's necssarily sound that makes me smile.  I love the sound of waves crashing on the shore, a baby laughing or a big pipe organ in a cavernous religious place.

5) 47 years after their record was a hit, The Stampeders still tour every summer, playing festivals across the US and their native Canada. Do you enjoy live music under the stars? Or would you prefer to be seated in a theater?

I can't sit on the ground any more (and definitely can't get up if I do), so I go for a theater.

6) In 1971, when this song was popular on the radio, detective shows were popular on TV. Mannix, Ironside and Cannon were all in the Top 20. Who is your favorite TV detective?

Monk.  Or Columbo.

7) Also in 1971, the Post Office Department was disbanded as a Cabinet department and became The United States Postal Service. When did you last go to the post office? Were you mailing something? Buying stamps? Picking up a package? Renewing your passport?

It was about 2 weeks ago and I was mailing off two swap bot packages.  I hear the P.O. wants to raise stamp prices to 55 cents because they are losing money.  Never could figure out how charging more is going to want to make people buy more, especially in this day of email and text messaging.

8) Race car legend Jeff Gordon was born in 1971. Do you watch NASCAR?

Never have.

9) Random question -- Do you have a vaccination scar? If so, where is it?

Not sure.  I used to be able to find my smallpox vaccination scar on my upper arm,but don't remember which one and don't see it now.


I followed a link for "odd things to do near me" and it gave me
this picture from Berlin.  Where does it think I AM???

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!
