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!
Saturday 9: Waiting for a Star to Fall (1988)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) "Waiting for a Star to Fall" was literally inspired by a falling star. The singing/songwriting duo of Boy Meets Girl was at a big, outdoor concert and could have sworn they saw a falling star in the night sky. Have you ever seen a falling star?
Many times. Best time was in upper
Yosemite during a meteor shower.
I was never a Whitney Houston fan, but I did like "I will always love you." (It's also the only song of hers that I can think of!)
3) Boy Meets Girl were George and Shannon, a husband-and-wife team originally from Seattle, WA. In 2016, Seattle was named America's most "bike-friendly city." Do you own a bike?
Not any more. I had a wonderful bike
that I had specially tweaked for me, but I didn't ride it after my bike
accident in 2003 and it was stolen out of our carport. I am nervous
about bike riding since the accident so there is no point spending a lot of
money to replace the bike when I don't know that I would ever ride it again.
I think the very last gift I bought
was for a couple who asked not for gifts but for donations to charitable
organizaitons. They are big proponents of pit bull rescue, so I sent a
donation to a pit bull organization.
Five minutes ago, I watched an episode of
Chicago Med that I recorded. Last night, I watched episode 5 of
Season One of Outlander (slowly working my way through all four
I am familiar with the slogan, but without
loooking it up, I don't know. I think it might be Nike.
This is a small town and I have met several
mayors. In fact, one mayor was a neighbor (but she died on vacation
many years ago). I have not met the current mayor.
Well, they certainly make for more
interesting news reporting, but after 2-1/2 years of the Trump
administration, I am completely sick of hearing about bad guys.
No. I don't think one exists.

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