14 May 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!

Saturday 9: Give a Little Love (1988)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

In memory of Naomi Judd (1946-2022)

1) In this week's song, the Judds tell us they aren't impressed by diamonds or foreign travel. If you had your choice, would you prefer a $1,500 diamond pendant or a $1,500 voucher from United Airlines?
Definitely the voucher.  I don't know where I would ever wear a diamond pendant.

2) In the video for this song, the Judds are shown having fun on the beach. Do you have any trips to the beach planned for the upcoming summer months?
Well, sort of.  We have a BBQ every 4th of July weekend in Santa Barbara, to celebrate our son Tom's birthday.  The BBQ is on the beach, but we don't exactly go to the beach part of it.  And the sand on the beach was all washed away a few years ago in a storm, so there is no sand anyway.

3) Early in their career, this mother-daughter duo performed in clubs venues around San Francisco, where they called themselves The Hillbilly Women. Have you recently been to a bar or restaurant with live music?
A few months ago, we went to a brewpub where a friend of our kids was playing, with his band.  We had dinner outside and watched the sun go down behind the band.

4) They moved to Nashville in 1979 in search of greater success. During the three years it took them to score a record contract, Naomi supported the family as a part-time nurse and occasional model. She enjoyed the flexibility so her schedule could accommodate auditions. Do you like having a pre-planned schedule? Or would you rather keep things loose?
I'm definitely a "loose" person.

5) Wynona sang the Elvis classic "Burning Love" in 2002 Disney movie Lilo and Stitch. What's the most recent Disney movie you've seen?
Oh lord.  I don't have a clue.  Probably Frozen, which I saw with our granddaughters several years ago.

6) In 2011, Wynona wrote her first novel, Restless Heart, about a country singer struggling with the price of fame. Have you ever tried your hand at writing fiction?
I am a good writer.  I can write non-fiction very well.  I am absolutely terrible at writing fiction.  My brain just doesn't work in fiction.

7) Kid sister Ashley Judd is the only woman in her immediate family to not change her first name. Naomi was born Diana, and Wynona was originally Christina. Do you like your first name?
Not particularly.  When I was born they were going to name me Barbara (which I preferred), which is the name of my aunt, but decided it would be too confusing to have two Barbaras in the family so they gave me her middle name.  Oddly enough, whenever someone can't remember my name, they usually call me Barbara.

8) In 1988, the year this song was popular, Sonny Bono went from entertainer to politician when he was elected Mayor of Palm Springs. Have you met the mayor of your town?
This is a small town and I've met several mayors.  In fact, we lived across the street from one of them.

9) Random question: Were you a member of the Columbia House Record Club?
Yes.  I got a lot of records I didn't want when I forgot to tell them not to send one that month!
