16 February, 2019

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!

Valentine (1993)

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

This song was specially chosen for the Saturday 9 closest to Valentine's Day.

1) This is a love song written by Willie Nelson for his young son. Have you sent any Valentines this year to someone you love who isn't a romantic partner?

Cards to each of my two granddaughters.

2) Today that little boy, Lukas, is a singer/songwriter who wrote eight of the songs for the 2018 A Star Is Born soundtrack. Have you seen the Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga big screen romance?

No.  And I don't intend to.  The 1954 version (with Judy Garland) is my all time favorite movie and while I know that this movie is designed for current tastes, I hate to see something I love so much changed.

3) On Valentine's Day in 1876, Alexander Graham Bell patented the first telephone. Who did you most recently speak to on the phone?

I just made a doctor's appointment for my husband.

4) Penicillin was also introduced on Valentine's Day (in 1929). When you get a shot, do you look away when the needle touches your skin?

Heck no.  Needles don't bother me.  I usually watch.

5) According to legend, a gift of red roses signifies love and romance. When did you last purchase flowers or plants? Did you buy them for yourself, or someone else?

I can't remember.  I  think I bought some for my mother last Valentine's day, but she no longer cares, so I didn't get her any this year.

6) This week's artist, Willie Nelson, can trace his family tree back to the Revolutionary War. Captain John Nelson served with the Minutemen back in 1776. If you could go back in time to witness any great moment in American history, which would you choose?

Certainly none of the famous battles.  How about the first Thanksgiving?  Find out what it REALLY was like.

7) Before he became a musical success, Willie was a door-to-door salesman, peddling first Bibles, then vacuum cleaners. INC magazine tells us that the traits of successful salespeople include resilience and good listening skills. Do you think you'd make a good sales person?

Oh lord, I'm the worst salesperson in the world.  If I had to rely on my sales skills to live, I would be dead in a week.

8) In 1993, when this song came out, Saved by the Bell aired its series finale. Crazy Sam likes to tease her brother because he once admitted to her that he has seen all 86 episodes of this teen sitcom. Is there a show that you believe you've seen every episode?

Oh lots!  The original Star Trek, West Wing, Northern Exposure, Outlander (so far...it's not finished yet), NCIS and many, many others.

9) Random question -- We're having milkshakes! What's your favorite flavor?

I love vanilla malts.
