Saturday 9: Get Down Tonight: K.C. and the Sunshine Band

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: Get Down Tonight (1975)

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

Want to join in the fun?  Go HERE

Saturday 9: Get Down Tonight (1975)

1) Tonight, KC has three things on his "to-do" list: do a little dance, make a little love and get down. Tell us three things you'd like to accomplish this weekend.  
I'd like to get two loads of laundry washed, dried and folded.  
I'd like to cast on some short fingered gloves
And, I'd like to change the sheets and wash them today.  
(this is being written and published on Friday, but I'm thinking ahead to the weekend.)

2) This week's song is considered emblematic of disco, a genre that had as many detractors as fans. Is there a kind of music you simply cannot stand? I've made no secret about the fact that I can not stand Rap

3) Before becoming a musician, KC, aka Harry Casey, worked in a record store. In those days, record stores were very popular. Peaches, Coconuts, Sam Goody and Tower Records are four store chains that once dotted the landscape but now are gone. Today, if you wanted to purchase a CD, where would you turn?
I can't think of any place to buy a CD except on line.  They can still be bought at Target and Costco, I think.  Maybe..  

4) One of his duties at the record store was unloading the big corrugated shippers filled with LPs. What's the heaviest thing you've lifted lately? Wow, those things must have been heavy!  The heaviest thing I've pick up, lately, is a laundry basket.  My little 15 pound doggie's getting lighter as he gets older, unlike Me!

5) KC is proud that he's lived his entire life in Miami-Dade County. Do you expect to change your address in the next year or so? 
No, but I wish we could.  I'd really like to move away. Somewhere above Los Angeles County, and  along the coast of California.  I hate trying to drive through L.A. County anymore.  If it were easy to fly, or you could actually save time doing it, I would.  The time expenditure comes awfully close to the same for that 1 hour flight.

6) In 1975, the year this song was popular, former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa disappeared, never to be seen again. Many theories flourish about what may have happened to him. Is there a famous criminal case that has a hold on your attention?  Actually, now that you mention it, I'd like to know what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.  But, back to the question.  No, there is no famous criminal case at the moment that I'm paying any attention to.  There might be some very interesting ones in the next couple of years. You can bet I'll be paying attention.....

7) Jaws was the most popular movie of 1975. Are you afraid of sharks?  That's both a "Yes" and "No".  I don't want to swim with the known aggressive ones but I'm glad they are out there, doing what they have to do to keep the ecosystems healthy and for the last 50 millions of years give or take.  Most sharks are harmless little guys, and I like seeing them. This is one of the tiny ones.

The Walking Shark

8) Actress Angelina Jolie was born in 1975. People magazine once named her "most beautiful." Who is the most beautiful woman you can think of?  I had a friend in the Club we were in, here, that is probably the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.  She was also a very intelligent and utterly kind person.  She may not still be alive.  But if she is: Anne, you're the one! 

9) Random question: A wizard offers you a choice -- would you like your life to stay as it is right now (in terms of your health, your career, your relationships and your finances) for the next 5 years, or would you like to take a chance that the future will be brighter?
It's a very poor Wizard who can't offer better choices than that! lol  And this one has very bad little habits Indeed!  Tilt!

I'm not one to mess with fate.  I don't particularly like where I am right now so wouldn't want to stay here another five years. The future is what it is.  No one likes to think about it, but in the next two minutes, your life could, and sometimes does, change drastically.

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. Oh goody, if we are ever in the same place at the same time we are good on music! My poor doggie is getting heavier as he gets older (damn fatty tumors) and he was no light weight to begin with. Have a lovely Saturday, Zip. I hope you get all the things on your to-do list done.

    1. Hi Stacy! I just read your answers and that is one heavy doggie! Sorry about the tumors. Wolfie gets them and we just keep an eye on them now. When we first got he had a very expensive operation to remove one on his neck.
      Thanks about the laundry. One load out and one load in. Good day! ;o)
      Have a relaxing time!

  2. Thanks for the photo of the walking shark. He is freaking ADORABLE! How could anyone be afraid of that cute overbite?

    1. He sure is a doll, isn't he? They walk like a lizard but using their fins. The big ones that take big bites, I can understand the fear.

  3. As winter is rearing its head in Northern Maine, I think about moving south!

    1. I can understand that. It's cold enough in southern Maine where my niece and her family live! She was a California girl all her life until she moved back to her husband's home state of Maine. She loves it there!

  4. That is one nasty image. I wonder how they will look in their orange jumpsuits. Orange in orange... hmmm......

    1. I wonder that, too. Harriet. It can't happen soon enough to repair the damage they've done, if anyone is kidding themselves about just how much damage was caused. Here comes China!

  5. Agreed with your answers, except of course I don't know your Anne. But how wonderful to have known the most beautiful woman you've ever seen.

    1. Hi CountryDew. I'm glad you and I agree on things. Makes me feel less like a madwoman, not to say that you are also a madwoman, mind..
      Ah, she was so beautiful, and kind. She has had it hard, a dragon of an illness and then a terrible, sudden loss, but she stayed so kind and loving. She taught me so much about surviving. She was also my Gemology teacher.
