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: Black (2016)

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

 1) This song was chosen because yesterday was Black Friday, the traditional day of sales. Have you begun your Christmas shopping?

Almost finished.  Just one more to get.  All without leaving the house.

2) Was there an adult beverage served with your Thanksgiving feast?

Walt had wine, I had water.  I'm not sure what Ned and Marta were drinking, but it was not alcohol.

3) Did any pets enjoy scraps from your Thanksgiving table?

The dogs were crazy all afternoon, smelling the turkey as it cooked.   They were THRILLED to have leftovers to lick before the dishwasher was loaded.

4) Are there any Thanksgiving leftovers in your refrigerator right now?

Enough that we will be sick of turkey before the end of next week.

5) Football is a popular Thanksgiving weekend pastime. Will you be watching any games over the next few days? If yes, which team(s) are you rooting for?

I watched the Cal-Stanford "Big Game."  I'm a Cal fan.  Damn Stanford (24-23)

6) This week's song is by Dierks Bentley. He wrote it for his wife, Cassidy Black, who appears in the video. They met in eighth grade, dated on and off, and then eloped when they were in their late 20s. Has anyone ever surprised you by going off and suddenly getting married?

I can't think of anybody.

7) 2016 was a good year for Bentley. This song was one of three hits he had that year, he co-hosted the CMAs and was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year. As 2020 winds to an end, do you feel it's been a successful year?

What a silly question!  More than a quarter of a million dead from COVID-19.  Unemployment at an all time high.  Positive COVID  test at an all time high.  Hospitals unable to take more patients because they are too full.  The only successful thing this year was the election of a new president.

8) In 2016, David Bowie died. Do you have a favorite Bowie song?

I have at least heard of David Bowie, but when I googled his songs, I didn't recognize any of them, though "I'm Afraid of Americans" certainly has interesting lyrics.

9) Also in 2016, CBS telecast reran How the Grinch Stole Christmas for the 50th time. What's your favorite Dr. Seuss story?

"Horton Hatches an Egg."  It's got an elephant, it's got someone going out of the way to do something nice for someone and it has a happy ending.
