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: Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast (1972)
... Because it's Father's Day weekend.

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

1) This song is about a little girl who runs after her daddy. When is the last time you ran? Were you trying to get somewhere in a hurry, or playing a sport?

Good lord.  I can barely walk fast.  I can't remember the last time I ran anywhere.

2) This song was a top ten hit for Wayne Newton. Mr. Newton is better known for his TV work, having made more than 150 appearances since 1963. Have you ever been on TV? Or in a YouTube video?

My kids have been making videos for many years, so I am on YouTube a lot (Here is one from 2009).  I've been on TV a couple of times, once when I was a kid and was on a kiddie program, another time when I was part of a discussion about breastfeeding (and I nursed my son on TV).

3) The road leading to Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport is named Wayne Newton Blvd. in his honor. When is the last time you were at an airport? Were you flying somewhere, picking someone up, or dropping them off?

Hmmm...the last time would have been when we were getting off a flight, but I can't remember the last time we flew anywhere, so it's been a few years.

4) Wayne says Elvis Presley haunts Las Vegas, and believes that The King of Rock and Roll has given him performing and parenting tips from beyond the grave. When did you last see Elvis? On TV, on a t-shirt, poster or magazine cover, or as a ghostly apparition?

Seems to me I saw a picture of him on line recently, but I can't remember where.

5) When Sam walks with her own dad, the problem isn't that he walks fast. It's that he's always stopping to pick up litter he finds on the grass. Litterbugs are his pet peeve. What's your pet peeve?

Actually my pet peeve is Walt, but it's not his fault.  My hearing is worsening and I can never hear him and he talks softly naturally.  Even when I'm wearing my hearing aids, I can't understand him.  I was telling him yesterday that I have a difficult time because Ned is so naturally LOUD that when I wear my hearing aids, he actually hurts my ears, and Walt is so soft even when I turn up the volume, I still have to make him repeat whatever he's telling me at least once.

6) Sam's own father often traveled for business, and always gave her the complimentary soaps, shampoos or body lotion he got from the hotel. When she went away to college, she used her collection of little bottles and was grateful for all the money they saved her. What's something you've done recently to economize?

Well, since I haven't been out to buy anything in 3 months, so my economizing is NOT buying anything on line.

7) It was her father who taught Sam to drive. Are you a better student or teacher?

It depends on what. 

8) Sam's father also always asks if her car in "tip top" condition. Most recently he reminded her to test her headlights, tail lights and turn signals while the car is parked to make sure they're all working. Do you have a car maintenance tip to share?

Make sure Walt fills the gas tank!

9) Sam's father satisfies his afternoon sugar craving with an almost endless stream of Butter Rum Lifesavers. Do you usually enjoy a between meal snack?

Between meal snacks are my life.
