29 May 2021

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: If You're Reading This (2007)

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



Memorial Day is the federal holiday designated to honor American service people who died in battle.

1) Memorial Day was introduced after the Civil War. War memorials, as well as graves of veterans, are to be decorated with flags and flowers this weekend in a show appreciation. Is there a war memorial in your neighborhood?
Yes, there is a small war memorial in a corner of our cemetery.  There is also a marker on the Veterans Memorial Theater (which is where our kids spent most of their lives, growing up)

2) Here at Saturday 9, we regard everyone who served -- veterans and active military -- as heroes. Have you, or has anyone in your family, worn the uniform of our armed forces? We want to hear about them.
My father was 4F, but two uncles were in WWII.  One was a prisoner of war in Germany.

3) Similarly, we're grateful to those who served on the front lines during the Covid 19 pandemic. Tell us about anyone you know who was an essential worker, a first responder or administered vaccines. They deserve a shout out, too!
I don't know anybody.

4) Memorial Day is the traditional kick off of the summer season. Have you packed away your winter clothes yet?
I don't have seasonal clothes.  Pretty much wear the same stuff year round.

5) What's your favorite picnic food?
It used to be my father's potato salad, but haven't had that since he died in 1987.  I guess now it would be stuffed eggs.

6) As you answer these questions, is there a fan or an air conditioner cooling your room?
We have air conditioning and I have a little fan next to my desk.

7) This week's song is about a heartbreaking situation. The lyrics are a letter from a soldier to his family, which was only to be sent in the event of his death. What's the saddest song you have ever heard?

"In the Arms of the Angel"  (Lyrics)
(The video is from my son's memorial service, sung by his wife and Ned's wife)

8) This week's featured artist, Tim McGraw, has a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's near those honoring William Shatner and Julie Andrews. If you could have lunch with one of those luminaries -- Tim McGraw, William Shatner or Julie Andrews -- which would you choose?
Julie Andrews.  Definitely not William Shatner!!!  (Love Captain Kirk, but I suspect the actor is a real pain in the ass)

9) Random Question: Think of the last thing you bought. Was it a wise purchase
?
I bought a copy of the book, "Quality of Care" by Elizabeth Letts.  I just finished her about to be published book, "The Ride of her Life" and wanted to read another book by the same author.  I think it's a wise purchase.
