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 to answer the questions, however, and here are today's questions.
Saturday 9: Every Time You Go Away (1985)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) This song is about separation. Who is the last person you said goodbye (or maybe just "so long") to?
My son Ned, who was here working on stuff and went home
I enjoy writing and think that I am good at the kind of
writing I do, but am aware of my limitations. I'm no Erma Bombeck,
though I always aspired to be.
Well, we are about to celebrate 54 years, so we must have the
key, but I couldn't name it. We enjoy the same things and we have the
same sense of humor. We always joked that we stayed together for the
sake of the children, since if one of us left, we'd insist the other one
take them. Now that they are all adults, that is no longer and issue.
I sponsor 14 children through
Compassion, International, whose
mission statement is to release children from poverty in Jesus' name.
I am not particularly religious, but I feel the need to do something to help
at least a few children in need of assistance around the world. I can't do
big things, but I can do big things for a child or two (or 14). At the
time I discovered Compassion, this was the only organization that not only
allowed but encouraged communication between child and sponsor. So I
started with a young girl in India and now I have kids in 13 different
countries, including some that I don't sponsor, but write to because their
sponsors don't want to write. I've seen several go through the program
to graduation and miss them, but there are always new kids who need help.
With the current border mess, I find I am drawn to kids in the central
American countries who are fleeing violence in their home countries and
merely want to find safety somewhere.
I had to look up Hall and Oates songs and the only one I have
ever heard of was "You've Lost that Loving Feeling" so I guess that must be
Water. Other than coffee, that's about the only
beverage I ever drink.
Apparently there has never been a Hurricane Beverly.
Interesting question since I just saw a musical about the
disaster movies of the 70s! I checked disaster movies of the 80s and
the only one I saw was Airplane, which is more a comedy than a
disaster movie. Oh, but this asks if I've seen any movies about the
Titanic. At least two, maybe three, if you count The Unsinkable
I hate shoes, and I hate touching people's feet, so I would
rather than do just about ANYTHING than run a shoe store. I would love
to run a coffee shop, though I'd probably end up weighing 400 lbs if I did.
