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: The Rain, The Park, and Other Things (1967)

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

1) The Cowsills were a family band who had three hit singles. Can you name another group of popular singing siblings?

The Jacksons, Donny and Marie,

2) This was their first hit, and it reached #2 on the Billboard charts. It was kept out of the #1 slot by the Monkees and "Daydream Believer." What's your favorite Monkees song?

"I'm a Believer"


3) After seeing the Cowsill brothers perform with their mother and sister, TV producers were inspired to create the sitcom, The Partridge Family. Did you ever watch it?

It was a favorite of my kids.

4) In the song, the narrator takes a flower from a girl in the park. Are there flowers in your home right now?

No.  I rarely have flowers in the house.

5) He isn't sure if the girl was real, or if he dreamed her. Tell us about a recent dream you had.

I have gone most of my life never having dreams, but lately I've been sleeping better and dreaming more.  I don't really remember my dreams but have a feeling they are inspired by whatever I watched on TV before I sent to bed

6) At the height of the Cowsills' popularity, they were hired by the American Dairy Association to promote drinking milk. If we were to peek into your refrigerator right now, would we find any milk?

Always

7) After the band stopped performing together, John Cowsill went on to become a back up musician for the Beach Boys. His job has kept him on the road much of the time. When you travel, do you enjoy staying in hotels, or would you rather stay with friends/family?

Depends on where we are going and who the friends are!  We always stay with Walt's sister and her husband in Santa Barbara

8) In 1967, the year this song was popular, Elvis married Priscilla in Las Vegas. Have you attended any weddings yet this year? Are there any weddings in your future?

I can't remember the last wedding I attended, and know of nobody planning a wedding in the future.

9) Random question: Are the bottoms of your feet ticklish?

Very, very.
