9 July 2022

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 to answer the questions, however, and here are today's questions!

Saturday 9: Time for Livin' (1968)

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

1) This song is about taking "time for life." Do you have a busy, highly-scheduled Saturday planned? Or will you have an opportunity to just relax and enjoy?
I just relax and enjoy every day, not only Saturday.

2) Lead singer Larry Ramos begins by telling us he likes to kick off his shoes and go barefoot. How about you? Do you like to feel "the good earth under your feet?"
I hate shoes and wear only sox most of the time, unless I have to to outside, and then I wear Birkenstocks.

3) He sings that once he took off his watch, he found he had all the time in the world. Tell us about your watch.
I haven't worn a watch in years.

4) With lyrics that include words like "grooving" and "hang-ups," this song is very much a product of its time. Share some of the slang you used during your adolescent years.
Can't think of many, but I used "groovy," which I still use today.

5) He sings that his attitude has been rearranged. What is something you have changed your mind about?
I can't think of anything.

6) This week's group, The Association, was founded in Hawaii. Hawaii produces more pineapple than other state in the union. When did you most recently have pineapple?
Ever since I read about pineapple being good for people with pain, I eat it every day, and we have little bowls of pineapple each night for dinner.  Apparently it doesn't work for everybody, but I have heard from several people who read about pineapple in Funny the World and have written to let me know that it works for them too.  I know if I go 3 days without pineapple, my muscle aches return.

7) In 1968, when this song was popular, Jacqueline Kennedy married Aristotle Onassis. Think about the last wedding you attended. Were you closer to the bride or to the groom, or were you equally close to both?
That's an easy question -- the bride.  The last wedding I attended was the very first gay wedding in Yolo County after it became legal seven years ago.

8) In 1968, when this song was popular, Laugh In was America's #1 TV show and it made a star of Goldie Hawn. Do you have a favorite Goldie Hawn movie?
I like Goldie Hawn, but I don't know that I've seen her in many movies.  I know I enjoyed Foul Play because it was shot in San Francisco, my home town.  I also enjoyed Overboard.

9) Random question: Who is the most recent person you made smile, and what did you do?
Hmmm...I think Ned smiled when I told him how much I enjoyed the movie Chef, which he recommended to me.


I don't know if this has been photoshopped or not,
but it's an interesting picture.  Dumbo!
