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: Don't Stop (1977)... because Country Dew recommended Fleetwood Mac
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) Since we're not supposed to stop thinking about tomorrow, let's talk about it: What are your plans for Sunday?
Actually, I have no plans for Sunday. I will be
visiting my mother on Saturday and on Monday, but I have Sunday off -- and
it's predicted to be >100⁰ so I'm
happy to have no plans!
I actually wear no jewelry at all, since I lost the
"grandma" necklace the girls gave me for my 70th birthday. I have tiny
pearl earrings that were my mother's, but that's about it.
I don't know that I have been familiar with anything by
Fleetwood Mac, so no, it's not in my collection!
I was always teased about being fat and, since I started
school a year early, all the other girls went through puberty a year before
I did, so I was teased a lot about my lack of boobs.
The only place I can think of where you order out for
chicken is KFC. It's not nearly as good as it was when the Colonel ran
things, but once in awhile it's not bad. The last time we had KFC,
though it was way too salty. (I wonder if kids today know what KFC
I almost never buy clothes in a store any more, but
occasionally I do like walking along looking in windows. I never got
nearly enough time to do that on cruises because we were always in a hurry
to get to our destination and nobody seemed to enjoy the journey as much as
This question has been asked before and in all honesty,
though there are a few things I would like to buy, the very first
thing I would do is to send a monetary gift to each of the kids I sponsor or
write to through Compassion, Int'l.
The second thing is to buy a ceiling light for our kitchen.
Ear buds. I don't know how/if that will change if I
get hearing aids. I might have to use some of that $1 million to buy a
good pair of headphones.
Well, I went to an all-girls school, so none of that opposite sex stuff. I did go to my 50th reunion and nobody that I knew well from school attended (our graduation class was only 60 people). There are two girls I would like to see -- one is a woman named Marie Davilla (obviously she has a different name now), with whom I went through 12 years of school and who has disappeared. Even the folks who collected addresses for the 50th anniversary were unable to find her. The other is a girl to whom I loaned a bunch of money several years ago, who promised to pay it back within a year and who has not. The only time I heard from her was when she called again and asked for another loan. My friend Gilbert always said "never loan money unless you are willing to lose it" and I knew when I loaned it to her that I probably would not see it again, but it was a disappointment to find out how dishonest she had become. On the other hand, it makes me sad that her circumstances forced her to contact someone she had not seen in decades and ask for help.

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As
always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on
their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's
responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a
rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another
version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your
