Saturday 9: Hungry (1966)
... because it's 4th of July
Unfamiliar with this week's tune?
Hear it here.
1) Are you eating anything as you respond to these questions?
I'm headed for bed. Too late to eat anything. Doesn't that cause Nightmares?
Nope, I never had to wear a uniform. Oh wait, UpDate... I had to wear a uniform at Dairy Queen, working for my Guitar. It was worth it.
3) The "Paul Revere" of Raiders fame was born Paul Revere Dick in Boise, Idaho. What else is Idaho known for?
Russet potatoes of course. Or are these spuds called Idahoes?
4) The original Paul Revere was a silversmith by trade, known for making church bells. Can you hear church bells from your home?
I can hear no church bells in this house but where we lived before this, we could always hear them. I miss them. Now I ring my own three bells and drive the neighbors bananas with wind chimes. But they all have more than I do. I'm afraid to try to keep up because it will scare all the birds away.
5) In April, 1775, Paul Revere literally rode into history when he galloped into the night, spreading the word that "the British are coming." Name another Revolutionary War-era hero.
My Heart will always belong to George Washington, who survived an assassination plot and starved with his men. He was a great Warrior Leader, as some have said before me, he is, was and will always be, the embodiment of Courage.
6) Historians tell us that Revere's famous "midnight ride" actually took place between 9:00 and 10:00 PM. When is your usual bedtime? 10:00 but I never make it to bed at that time or go to sleep before around 1 am.
7) Earlier this year, officials from Boston's Museum of Fine Arts uncovered a time capsule buried in 1795 by Paul Revere and Gov. Sam Adams. It included coins and newspapers. If you were to bury a time capsule that reflects American life in 2015, what would it include?
I saw Harriet's time capsule inclusion and couldn't agree more. We could include pictures of all the Vietnam vets who show up at "Muster" in the Park every summer.
8) Will you attend a fireworks display during the 4th of July weekend?
We stay home with the Puppy. We can't leave him alone on a dreadful evening when all that horrible noise is going. I am afraid for the birds who are here along the Pacific Flyway. There, I rained on the parade.
9) What's your preferred way to celebrate Independence Day -- a parade, a picnic, or both?
picnic, when we can be bothered to wade through bodies on the beach. Look we love ya, but couldn't you come in the other seasons? The Oceans just as warm, since it never gets over 67 most of the time anyway. And the sun shine is the same, you can get a horrid sunburn just as easily in January as in August. Take it from me, the parking situation is better. Give yourselves a break, and us along with it?
