December 28, 2019

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 is today's questions!

Our last Saturday 9 of 2019. Thank you for another great year, everyone!

Saturday 9: Cold as Ice (1977)

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

1) Look back on 2019 and share a happy moment.

Thank goodness there have been many happy moments in 2019, but probably the best was finding such a wonderful place for my mother and watching her settle in there.  It's never happy to see a loved one losing her mind, but Eldervilla Senior Care Facility is so much better than where she was before, that it was a real high point for me.

2) As 2019 ends, are you making any New Year's resolutions for 2020?

No...just continue to settle into this "10 year project" with Ned and Marta.

3) Tell us about an obstacle or challenge you faced in 2019.

The challenge for us as well as for son Ned and his wife Marta is combining our two houses,  They have been living in a house for several years, and moving into two ROOMS here has been a challenge, more for them than for us.  But they have worked like dogs to create an "apartment" for themselves, and together we have managed to rid this house of literally tons of "stuff" that has gone to other worthy causes.  This doesn't mean things are uncluttered, of course, but it is 1000% better than it was at the start of 2019.  And it's nice to no longer have an empty nest.

4) Is it "cold as ice" outside where you are today?

Well, it's midnight, so it's not warm.  It was mid-50s in the afternoon yesterday.

5) Foreigner is this week's featured artist. The band formed in New York City. If you were to travel to New York City, what would you be sure to see?

We have been to New York several times, so have seen most of the big sights, but if we were to go today, what I'd be sure to see is as many Broadway shows as we could afford.

6) The band went by the name Trigger. They changed it because their prospective record label was already auditioning a different group named Trigger. They settled on Foreigner because half the members were foreign -- from England. If you received a free, round-trip airline ticket to any foreign country, where would you go?

One of the African countries.  Probably Kenya, which is were the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is located.  It's one place I've always wanted to see, but I fear that physical limitations would prevent me from seeing it as I would like to today.

7) In 1977, when this song was popular, Star Wars was breaking all box office records. The Spy Who Loved Me, a James Bond movie, was also a 1977 hit. Which film series do you prefer: Star Wars or James Bond?

I enjoyed the first Star Wars and have seen a few others, but I'm not a big fan of the series.  I prefer James Bond.

8) In 1977, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak incorporated Apple. Are you answering these 9 questions on an Apple product (PC, laptop, pad or phone)?

No, but I do have an iPhone.

9) Random question: What was the last thing you thought of as you dozed off last night?

Our big Christmas dinner is today, since we couldn't gather everyone together until now, so my going-to-sleep and waking-up thoughts have all been about the things that need to get done for the dinner.


Ned took a brief well-deserved break before Jeri and Phil arrived.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
