Saturday 9: So into you...

A Very quick Saturday 9

Thank you Gal, for doing this every Saturday, come rain or come shine.....

Saturday 9: So Into You (1977)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here

1) The singer says that he noticed the lady in question as soon as she walked into the room. Tell us about someone who made a powerful first impression on you.  
I've never met a celebrity.  However, the first person to do this was my Crystallography Professor at UCLA.  He made a big impression on me.  I was fascinated by him.

2) He sings that he's so into her, he can't think about other, more mundane things. Do you find you get easily distracted from your daily tasks? Or do you enjoy seeing your everyday chores through completion?
Unfortunately, now, I am easily distracted.  And also have to work in short spurts to protect me sore back.  I have to make many more lists now or I forget even important things.

3) The band took their name from Georgia's biggest city. Have you ever been to Atlanta?
I've never been to the Southern States at all.

4) The Atlanta Rhythm Section once played the White House. President Carter's son, Chip, was a big fan and invited them to play at his 28th birthday party. How did you celebrate your last birthday?
We went out for dinner and watched a College basketball play off game on the big screen.  It was really fun.

5) Studio One, where the band made all their recordings, was torn down and replaced by a parking lot. Can you think of a structure that you missed, after it met with a wrecking ball?
No, but I can tell you about one that was saved!  There is a place downtown that is incredible.  The Spreckles Theater.  We went to see Jean Pierre Rampal in concert there. That theater has the greatest acoustics.  It would have been very sad if it had been torn down.  However, we should tear down the more modern San Diego Opera House.

6) This song hit #7 on the US pop charts. 7 is the number most often chosen as "a lucky number." How about you? Do you have a lucky number?  I don't know about lucky, but 37 is the number that I like BEST.  It is my favorite number.  

7) Today the Atlanta Rhythm Section reunites with to play at classic rock concerts. What oldies band would you love to see again? Aerosmith, The Eagles, or Moody Blues.  I like me some Rock.

8) In 1977, the star of NBC's Chico and the Man, Freddie Prinze, took his own life. Is there a celebrity death you found shocking?
 I just leave it all alone. And, I never did get shocked by it.  Millions of ordinary people died at that same time as some celeb, and they didn't get a two word notice by the world. 

9) Random question: What word do you always misspell? I cansistantly mispell sow mainy wurds its hawrd tuo peick onlie wone. 

*RandomNote: To Stacy.
I bit the bullet and did the Nat Geo Geno20 test.  They found that my DNA shows 17% Native American.  So, now we know. lol  They can't tell the tribe,  but my own research suggests Pueblo and most likely Hopi..

Wishing everyone safe journeys and safe returns, even if it's just to the mailbox and back.  Much Love!


  1. I met Gabby Hayes when I was around 7 or 8, I was awe struck.

    1. Gabby Hayes would have left me gobsmacked for sure. How thrilling that must have been! Wishing you a happy weekend, Diana. ♥

    1. sorry so late! Thank you Gal. This was a lot of fun. I hope to be rested up and do the Saturday 9 for this week. We had fun in the north country with the kids...

  3. I am the same with chores, I have to watch my back. I hate it.
    You crack me up with #9! Hahahahaha
    Loved your answers! Have a great weekend.


    1. Lori, sorry to be so late to answer.
      I know what you mean about having to rest that back of yours. My spine gets tired after about 15-20 minutes so I go rest it, then go back at it all again...
      I couldn't resist doing something fun with #9, especially after misspelling the first three words I typed. lol

  4. Zippy- you have FABULOUS taste in music. I am not surprised :)

    1. Why thank you, thank you very much Ms. Harriet. It is the undying Rocker in me I reckon... I love the Rock Bands....

  5. You can join Harriet and me for an Eagles concert! (I wouldn't mind seeing Aerosmith, either.)
    I think that same thing about celebrity deaths every time I see Facebook go into meltdown mode over one.
    #9 is funny!
    Oh, how neat to have found something through your DNA. Is there any way to know what tribe for sure? I recently sent my DNA off in the mail...not for the nationality thing, but this is for one that tells you about health indicators and such. It might be helpful since I don't have any information about my father. I'll let you know if I learn anything interesting from it.

    1. Oh yay then! Let's DO THIS THING!
      #9 is beginning to less a joke all the time. lol I cannot spell things anymore!
      I'm looking forward to hearing more about your DNA results. So interesting!
      About mine, I think I am Hopi because of three things. Location, Well documented Oral and written tribal History, and certain food preferences that are truly unique to the group I'm in.
      The entire DNA project spectrum of studies suffers because Native American tribal Councils don't want to participate, and I can say I blame them. It's the way things are set up in the US re: the tribes. That's why tribe can't be determined by the Gen.2.0 or other DNA studies. But Language groups say Hopi, to me, too, as well as other evidence from my own research.

  6. #9 - way to go! (So far massaging isn't helping those lipomas a bit. They just stay sore. How long does it take?)

    1. Sorry to be answering so late, my sweet friend. It takes awhile months if I remember correctly. However, few of mine were sore at all. Also, when I went on the Adkin's Diet, which is now gaining favor again..... they disappeared entirely. Diet has at least some part in this thing, no matter what the carb pushers want to think and bleat!
