Saturday 9 That's what friends are for.


To play along with the Saturday9ers, go HERE

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: That's What Friends Are For (1985)

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

1) This week's song is performed by an all-star quartet: Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder. You have your choice: which of these four would you most like to see in concert?
What a hard choice to make but if you give me a ticket to Elton John, I'll buy tickets to the others. What a Great line up!

2) Dionne Warwick was Whitney Houston's cousin. Name a Whitney Houston song.
I didn't know that they were cousins.  And the song, "I Wanna Dance with Somebody", is one I'll always be able to hear her sing inside my head.  She was beautiful, with a voice that was powerful and really amazing.

3) Gladys Knight owns a chain of chicken and waffle restaurants around Atlanta. When you have waffles, what do you top them with? (Powdered sugar? Butter? Syrup? Fruit?)
I  liked waffles with butter, strawberries and whipped cream on top.  I used to make waffles with cornmeal in them, and then we put apple sauce and whipped cream on top.  That was very good, too!

4) Elton John has turned his bad eyesight into a hobby, claiming that over the years he has purchased well over than 200,000 pairs of glasses. Do you wear glasses? If so, how many prescription pairs do you own?
I have the normal aging eye prescriptions.  No excitement in that!  I guess, from a woman's perspective, eyeglasses are Elton's "shoes"?  I now have eyeglass envy.  Darn it!
THIS  page is rather fun.  I didn't look at all of it, so be aware.  

5) Stevie Wonder has a scar on his nose from a 1973 car crash. Have you ever been in a car accident?
Yes, but I've answered rather fully before so won't bore you with the gory details yet again.

6) Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager were married when they wrote this. Do you know a husband and wife who work together? 
 Not any more.  Several of the married, and unmarried for that matter, rockhounds did sales together at meets and shows.  We all had so much fun going to Quartzsite and even once to the Tucson shows, the big National Rockhound club meet up in Moab, Utah, and four corners country.   So fun!  

7) This song celebrates friendship through good times and bad. Tell us about a happy time you recently shared with someone close to you.
Right now I'm not sure about what is happy, and what is cheerful.  Cheerful is probably best when the brass tacks start popping through the carpet of life.  I've found that as long as my mind is occupied completely in something funny or cheerful, I get a rest from panic and hysteria.

 So, I darn well keep busy with good stuff.  And I have a little sherry from time to time.  This Meme thing; it's part of the good stuff.  I can't thank the people who put these things together enough.  


But I can try!
Thank you! Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!

8) Now share a time when you were there for a friend through a tough time.
Right after one of the rockhounds died suddenly, I got a panicky call from his poor wife, my friend.  So, I went and spent a night and the next day with her, and took her to the doctor where she found out that her pacemaker had been set too high.  After that she was much better, physically.

9) Random question: When is the last time you were out of breath?
It's so long ago I can't remember it but it was probably sometime when I was still going to the gym, and using the rowing machine.  I loved that thing.  That and machine 72.  How I miss 'em.  My arms however, do not.  My arms remind me quite regularly that what I did in the gym didn't stay in the gym.  It came home and sits on each shoulder like a pair of E.A. Poe Ravens.  

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 weekend!

  1. The tacks coming up through the carpet is a new expression for me. I like it. And being one to appreciate beautiful sunrise and sunsets, I also like your page. The cartoon about thinking is so true. :-)

    1. Hi, Nonnie, I love clouds and the sun interacting, so sunrises and sunsets are some favored beauties in my world, too. Thanks. I write the same as I talk, which is fairly random sometimes, thus the imagery cloud rains down the strangest combos. Basically, I think Ike a poet and a fire breathing dragon.
      That cartoon said exactly what I'm feeling. Lucky find, really! Have a wonderful week.

  5. Loved your "thanks" because I certainly enjoy these memes and the people who partake of them. They're a bit addicting - sort of like alcohol but without calories.

    1. Yes, they are addictive CountryDew! They are something to look forward to. And, as you say, "no calories". A big plus! And the people are the biggest part. So they are.

      So, thank you everyone!
