Saturday 9: Black

BLACK

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.

    1. Thank you, Susan. I’d say it’s like a jungle out there but..... There’s a cartoon going around in my head about an African villager telling his young son, who was leaving their little Round hut, “Be careful, Son. It’s like a city out there.“

  3. I would have loved some wine--but, alas, my medications don't play nicely.

    1. Thank you, Kwizgiver. I know this feeling...Mr.Z drinks all the wine. I had a nice, iced tea. Sometimes I’ll take a sip of Pinot Noir if he has that, but my meds won’t allow more.
      Happily, there was pecan πŸ₯§ pie. πŸ˜‚

  4. "Any year above ground was a good year."
    That is how I feel about this year... I made it through above ground

    1. Thank you, Diana. It’s a very appropriate way to deal with the massive “worry and angst bundle” that Life drops at your feet, so it is. “One day at a time”, is the other. Enjoy the moment... πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸŽΈ

  7. My dad used that saying....every day above ground is a good day. His ashes were scattered at sea by the Navy, so technically, he's still above ground :)

    1. Yes, he is. :)
      I like to think that all the atoms we borrow from the earth get returned to the earth. And that means you and your loved ones are in everything after seven years... That's the renewal time for everyone's body. Every atom you had seven years ago is now replaced by new ones.
