11 May 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 memes, however, and here is today's meme!


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

1) In this song, a son thanks his mother for helping him grow up strong and confident. Who is the last person you thanked? What did they do for you?
Tom sent us a video from Lacie's classroom, which they make regularly telling parents what they have learned this week.  This week they learned about life cycles in class and it showed an art project about the life cycle of the butterfly.  I'm always thankful that he is able to share these videos with us.

2) Who was the last person to thank you for something?
My friend Joan's husband thanked me for putting a notice of her death on my Facebook timeline and pointing out to him how many people had written messages to him on it.

3) This is from the Backstreet Boys' album "Millennium," recorded and released in 1999. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when 1999 turned into 2000?
According to Funny the World, January 1, 2000: 
We spent New Year’s eve quietly, sort of. We went to a party hosted by the psychiatrist that I work for. It’s always an interesting gathering. He and his wife (a state assemblywoman) have been giving this party for as long as we’ve known them--which is nearly 30 years.

4) This song was written by Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell. Brian voiced himself on an episode of PBS' Arthur. Arthur has been described as an "animated anthropomorphic aardvark" -- which can be difficult to say. Do you easily get tongue tied?
Well, I can say "animated anthropomorphic aardvark" without problem, but I am often tongue tied.  I was a medical transcriptionist for so many years, I am rarely tongue tied on medical stuff or stuff like this.

5) The French word for "mother" is "mère." What other French words do you know?
I was a French major, so I know a lot of French words, but it struck me as funny that one letter separates "mère" from "merd."

6) Mother's Day is a big holiday for card shops. So are birthdays, weddings, and St. Patrick's Day. Hallmark sells greetings for everything from "Congratulations on Your New Job" to "Happy Retirement." Who received the most recent card you bought?
Well my friend Char for her birthday, but I forgot to take it to her party and I don't know her new address, so I have to wait to give it to her when I next see her for lunch.

7) Have you put away your winter clothes yet? |
In this part of the country, we don't need seasonal clothes, so I pretty much wear the same clothes year-round, the only difference being whether I wear a jacket or not.

8) Mother Winters used to scold Sam for leaving her dirty dishes in the sink. Sam admits it: as a grown up, she's still a bit of a slob. Do lean toward "neat" or "messy?"
Anybody who has read this journal for any time at all will know the answer to that question.  I don't lean toward messy, I fully embrace it.

9) To celebrate Mother's Day, Sam is giving away her mother's favorite: Hershey Bars. Would you prefer classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate or milk chocolate with almonds?
Definitely milk chocolate (though I also enjoy Hershey's with almonds.)  As for brands, it's toss up between Hershey, See's and Lindt.  I will probably get my mother a box of See's candy for Mother's day, though she won't know what it's for and will share it with everyone in the house where she lives.
