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!
1) This song was chosen because yesterday was Black Friday, the traditional day of sales. Have you begun your Christmas shopping? Yes
2) Was there an adult beverage served with your Thanksgiving feast? Wine, red.
3) Did any pets enjoy scraps from your Thanksgiving table? Wolfie got a few small pieces of my grilled chicken.
4) Are there any Thanksgiving leftovers in your refrigerator right now? No. We didn't have pie this year, but that would be in there if we did.
5) Football is a popular Thanksgiving weekend pastime. Will you be watching any games over the next few days? If yes, which team(s) are you rooting for? No. We do watch bits and pieces of a random game when the rest of the family gets together at a sil's house, but not here at home.
6) This week's song is by Dierks Bentley. He wrote it for his wife, Cassidy Black, who appears in the video. They met in eighth grade, dated on and off, and then eloped when they were in their late 20s. Has anyone ever surprised you by going off and suddenly getting married? Ok. surprised? That would be one of my sister-in-laws, and her first husband.
7) 2016 was a good year for Bentley. This song was one of three hits he had that year, he co-hosted the CMAs and was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year. As 2020 winds to an end, do you feel it's been a successful year? Well, a friend in the Rockhounds used to say, "Any year above ground was a good year." So, yes, it was, a good year. Lol...
8) In 2016, David Bowie died. Do you have a favorite Bowie song? I only one I've ever could say that I liked is "Space Oddity". I've heard them all, maybe not the ones recorded at private sessions, but all the others. If he did co-write "Imagine", then yes, I love that one.
9) Also in 2016, CBS telecast reran How the Grinch Stole Christmas for the 50th time. What's your favorite Dr. Seuss story? I really can't pick a favorite. I read them ALL to my kids ( and then they read them themselves) when they were small. I think these amazing books helped them to learn how to navigate some of the obstacles in the life among the wolves and fakers. It's a vicious little world out there, so guard your children well.
