Today in My History
Survived Mothers Day
16 May 2020
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!
Remember Us This Way (2018)
1) In this song, Lady Gaga sings about the Arizona sky and California gold. Have you visited many of our western states?
Since I live in California, I have probably
visited all of our western states.
Oh definitely in writing. I get tongue tied verbally and, the older I get and the more dementia signs I see, the more I can't find words when speaking (with writing, you have Google to help you!)
3) Her real name is Stefani Germanotta. She took her stage name from the Queen song, Radio Gaga. Do you have a favorite Queen song?
I don't know any Queen songs.
4) Her dad is Joe Germanotta, president of GuestWifi, a company that enables hotels and restaurants to offer high-speed wifi to their customers. Do you consider yourself tech savvy?
I am not as tech savvy as I used to be.
When tech started moving beyond what I would use, I stopped reading tech
manuals and I'm pretty stupid now. Things that I used to know very well, I
can't remember any more.
I am re-reading the Outlander books (along with
some others) and the last one I finished was "An Echo in the Bone," #7 of the
eight that have been written. I hope to have #8 finished by the time #9 is
published. (I'm reading them on my Kindle)
I prefer dogs to cats, but coffee to tea.
I have written several new-to-me penpal letters,
thanking each writer for the letter she had written to me.
I can't remember but it was probably something
for the girls' Christmas present. Tom's wife adds suggestions to her
Amazon wish list and I just pick from there.
I have met lots of people who have become
"imaginary friends" (as a guy on Compuserve says his wife used to call all of
us). It gives me a "group" to interact with during quarantine.
Google helps me remember things I have forgotten. Facebook is good for all
sorts of things (and I skip over the things that don't interest, or anger me).
It doesn't feel as lonely when there is "someone" to interact with in social
media these days.
