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!

of any other bank.
It was a used one-speed that we found an ad
for in the paper. I loved it, but was a bit jealous when my sister, a
couple of years later, was given a brand new 3-speed.
Probably Walt. But that was a very.
long. time. ago.
I can't remember the incident, but it was
probably either champagne or a champagne cocktail. I didn't start
heavy duty drinking until I was in college. Hating hangovers was one
