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!

We saw the Mister Rogers movie. Walt
paid for the tickets, so I don't remember how much. I think about $6
Casper the Friendly Ghost.
8) In 1959, continuing dramas (soap operas) were still broadcast each day on the radio. When you turn on the radio, do you listen for talk, news, or music?
I rarely turn on the radio, almost never for
music, but news or talk, depending on which station I can find.
Definitely the Bake-off. Even if I
don't know enough to "expertly" judge...what fun to taste all those goodies!

Walt stopped by the strawberry stand. These are sooooo good!
I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear
