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: This Haunted House (1964)

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

1) Loretta Lynn wrote this song to help her cope with the sudden death of her friend, Patsy Cline. When they first met, Patsy was already a star and she helped Loretta become established. Did you more recently advise or receive advice?

Probably receive advice.  Ned often has advice for me.

2) She sings that Patsy's is the face she sees when she turns out the light. Do you remember who or what you were thinking about when you fell asleep last night?

LOL.  Jeopardy.  I fell asleep during Jeopardy and didn't wake up until about 1 a.m. ... and then didn't go back to sleep again.

3) Loretta maintains her TN ranch is haunted. She says "the moaning woman" is a harmless apparition, dressed in white. Do you believe in ghosts?

I believe that there are spirits that can visit after death.  Whether they are dressed in white or not, I don't know.  I don't expect to see Casper the friendly ghost, but I have several  times felt the presence of a good friend who died.

4) Loretta Lynn's ranch is now open to the public. In addition to horseback riding, fishing and camping, Loretta's ranch features shops that sell locally-sourced jams, jellies and sauces, as well as Loretta Lynn CDs and "Coal Miner's Daughter" glassware and t-shirts. Have you ever brought home an edible souvenir? Or do you prefer to remember your trips with something more lasting, like a coffee mug or t-shirt?

I usually bring home something other than something edible, but I have, on occasion, bought something edible to bring home.  I remember one time bringing a whole bunch of sandwich bags of weird flavored crisps (potato chips) from England for Paul.

5) According to Reader's Digest, The Exorcist is the scariest movie of all time. Have you seen it, and if so, did it scare you?

I saw it when it first came out, 47 years ago.  I am sure I was scared, but I can't remember now.

6) Which do you find spookier: haunted houses or cemeteries?

I actually find both interesting.  I haven't actually been "haunted" so I can't say how I would react to that.  But I do love cemeteries, especially old ones.

7) What's the most recent Halloween costume you wore?

I can't remember the last time I wore a Halloween costume.  My entry from a year ago is titled "My Costume" and it was when I was visiting my mother and she thought I was her husband, so I guess my costume was her late husband!

8) When you were a kid, did you trade your Halloween candy with siblings or friends?

Sure.  Didn't everybody?

9) Random question: You meet your very friendly new neighbor. She invites you over for a "get acquainted" cup of coffee tomorrow afternoon and you accept. Then you learn that she was once on trial for an axe murder ... but acquitted. Would you still go over to her house?

Acquitted, you say?  Sure.  She would definitely have an interesting story to tell.


Snow?  In Boston?  In October??
