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!
(Dear Mr. Gable) You Made Me Love You (1938)
1) This version of "You Made Me Love You" is the teenaged Judy Garland's fan letter to Clark Gable. Tell us about one of your teen crushes.
Ironically, my big teen age crush was...Judy Garland. I saw A Star
Is Born in 1953 and that was it. I collected every photo, recording,
book, etc. about her that I could find. When she came to San Francisco
with a concert in the late 1950s, I saved money and was able to see it three
times. When she came back with her Carnegie Hall show in about 1961, I sat
in the lobby of her hotel for 2 days until she checked in and got her autograph,
I then saw the show. It is the only time I ever rushed the stage at the
end and shook her hand (which was very cold). I had about five big
scrapbooks of things I collected over the years, which I ended up donating to
the Judy Garland fan club in London, which paid me for the postage it cost to
send them all.
We sent a video to our granddaughter who turned 9 a couple of weeks ago.
Just earrings. It bothers me to wear rings or bracelets.
Roast lamb, mashed potatoes, peas, and pecan pie for dessert.
No. I am totally left handed and left sided. My left eye
is stronger, I hear better with my left ear, I am stronger on my left foot.
Very little. Mostly I read my own reviews when they are printed.
We DO get two newspapers delivered each day, though.
I used to many, many years ago. I made a blanket for Jeri when I was
pregnant with her and I knitted a sweater for Walt which was so bad he never
No pockets, no dimes.
Next to. Sometimes I like to dip my fries in catsup, but mostly I like them plain.
