November 16, 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!

Judy at Carnegie Hall (1961)

We're spotlighting this legendary concert because Bev from Sunday Stealing loves Judy Garland. This week's Saturday 9 is a "thank you," one meme-mistress to another, in gratitude for Bev's willingness to pick up Bud's meme and keep it going.

(I am verklempt.  Thank you for this!  It means a lot)

Song #1: "When You're Smiling." What made you smile this week?

Without a doubt, coming to Saturday 9 today and seeing this set of questions.  I'm still smiling.

Song #2: "Almost Like Being in Love." We've all had many crushes, but love is rare. How many times have you fallen in love?

Three.

Song #3: "This Can't Be Love." This Rodgers and Hart song was introduced in the play, The Boys from Syracuse. Syracuse is the county seat of Onondaga County, NY. What county do you hail from?

Yolo County, California.

Song #4: "Do It Again." What's something you'd do again, if only you had the time or money? (A book you'd like to reread, a recipe or pattern you'd like to make again, a vacation destination you'd like to revisit, etc.)

I'd love to redo our first trip to England/Ireland with all five kids.

Song #5: "You Go to My Head." Judy forgets the lyrics, but gamely keeps going. Tell us about a recent moment when you chose to keep going, no matter what.

Hmmm...I can't think of one.

Song #6: "Alone Together." Is anyone there with you as you answer these questions, or are you alone?

I am alone, watching the Impeachment hearings and coverage of Roger Stone's guilty verdict.

Song #7: "Who Cares?" This song was written by brothers George and Ira Gershwin. They had a lesser known brother, stockbroker Arthur. Are you more creative and artistic, like George and Ira? Or more analytical and methodical, like Arthur?

I have never been analytical or methodical in my life!

Song #8: "Puttin' on the Ritz." Judy sings that The Ritz is the place in New York "where fashion sits." If we wanted to see everyone "all gussied up" in your town, where would we go?

This is a pretty casual town.  I can't think of anywhere that people get gussied up. 

Song #9: "How Long Has This Been Going On?" Judy sings about discovering how glorious romance can be. Have you made any new discoveries lately? It doesn't have to be as groundbreaking as Judy's. A new podcast or a faster route to work counts, too.

Well, it's sorta new.  I discovered them a couple of months ago.  Two groups on Facebook, "Remembering San Francisco" and "San Francisco Natives."  Such fun!

If you're wondering why there are no Garland hits here ... these are her first numbers in the order that she performed them. She saved her better-known songs for the end of concert. Who am I to second guess Judy?

Thanks, Sam.  This was very special.
