Scavenger Hunt

12 March 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 memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Beautiful Day (2000)

Unfamiliar with this week’s song? Hear it here.

1) This song is about finding joy in an imperfect world. What brings you joy today?
It's a beautiful, clear day and the squirrels are chasing each other around the yard.  Also, Gracie, the squirrel who built a nest in our squirrel house disappeared for 3 days and is back.  The squirrels always give me joy.

2) The lyrics mention being stuck in traffic. A poll of Boston commuters revealed that drivers have a variety of responses to be stuck in traffic — everything from bored to impatient to angry. How do you feel when you’re stuck in a traffic jam?
If I have an audio book I am happy for traffic jams because I get to listen to more of the story.  If not, I may be unhappy for a long wait, but I don't get angry...just take it the way it comes.

3) This year Bono and his wife, Ali, celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. Who is the longest-married couple you know?
Probably Walt and me.  We have been married almost 57 years.

4) When Bono inducted Frank Sinatra into the Grammy Hall of Fame, he complimented Frank on his “swagger.” Do you think you have “swagger?”
Oh definitely no swagger.  More "stagger."

5) When U2 guitarist The Edge did a charity concert at the Sistine Chapel, he became the first rocker to perform there. If you were to travel to Rome, what sites would you be certain to visit?
The Vatican (including the Sistine Chapel), the Spanish steps and the Trevi fountain.  But since I can't really walk all that well any more, I won't be visiting anything in Italy or any other foreign country.

6) This week’s song was chosen because St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, and U2 is one of Ireland’s most famous exports. What else is Ireland famous for?
Guinness, of course!  Also Aran sweaters, and all those wonderful Irish tunes that my grandfather sang when he was an Irish tenor in vaudeville.

7) Corned beef and cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dish. Is it a favorite of yours?
I like corned beef and cabbage and often cook it on St. Patrick's day, but I wouldn't say that it is a favorite.  I actually don't eat much beef any more.

8) St. Patrick is credited with driving snakes out of Ireland. Ophiophobia is the fear of snakes. Do you suffer from ophiophobia?
Not from a distance.  I don't mind watching snakes, but I just don't want to have to touch one.  I held a snack once, determined not to be afraid, and the darn thing PEED on me!

9) St. Patrick’s Day fantasy: A leprechaun will share his gold with you, but you must request a specific amount for a single item. How much would you ask for, and what would you buy?
Hmmm....what do I want to buy with leprechaun gold...?  I dunno.  How about $10,000 to have a stair lift (an escalator to go upstairs).


Went to lunch with Char this week
