November 30, 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!


Saturday 9: Baby's in Black (1964)

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

1) Black is this week's signature color because Friday was "Black Friday," the day when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any "Black Friday" bargains?

I have never shopped on Black Friday and have no interest in doing so--ever.

2) Feasting and football are also popular Thanksgiving weekend pastimes. Do your Thursday-Sunday plans include pigging out or watching a game?

Well, probably not watching a game.  Possibly pigging out, but no plans to do so.

3) At Thanksgiving dinners, Crazy Sam's homemade gravy is always a hit. (Probably because she's so generous with the cognac, which gives the gravy a nutty taste.) What was particularly delicious at your Thanksgiving table?

We didn't have an official "dinner" but we had some yummy hors d'oeuvres, like stuffing stuffed mushrooms, brie cranberry sauce appetizers and potato cheese puffs.

4) Among the biggest the Black Friday advertisers are Target, Kohl's, Macy's and Best Buy. If you could have a $100 gift card to any one of those stores, which would you choose?

Target.  It's the only one of the four that I ever visit...and the only one which is here in town and does not require driving somewhere.

5) This week's song, "Baby's in Black," is about a girl who wears black because she's in mourning. Do you find that the color you're wearing reflects your mood?

Not at all.  In fact, I rarely remember what I'm wearing unless I look down and think about it.

6) The woman who inspired this song, Astrid Kirchherr, has been friends with Paul McCartney since he and his bandmates (John Lennon, George Harrison, Stu Sutcliffe and Pete Best) met her in Hamburg back in 1960. Tell us what you believe are the components of a strong, lasting friendship.

Compatibility, sense of humor, trust, mutual interests.

7) In the early days of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and John Lennon began writing a play but abandoned it. Do you have a novel, painting, play, song or poem that you're going to finish "someday?"

No.  Those projects were finished (well, non-fiction book, and song)

8) When he was 16, George Harrison dreamed of moving to Canada, Australia or Malta. In just a few years, he would visit all those places with Beatles and eventually decided there was no place like home and stayed in England (though he did also maintain a home in Hawaii). Have you ever thought about moving to another country? If so, where?

No.  I have often thought I could live in Ireland (which feels like home) or Australia, which I loved when I was there, but bottom line is I could not leave the family....and I've lived in California for nearly 77 years.

9) Random question: Finish this sentence -- If you want me to give you "yes" for an answer, the best time to approach me is

I don't know.  When are you likely to be in a good mood?
