Saturday Nine

Dedicated to the One I Love

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!

Thanks to Diana for recommending the Mamas and the Papas. (You can listen to the song here.)

1) The lyrics include the line, "Love can never be exactly what we what it to be." Are you happy with your love life? I am happy with my lack of love life. 2) Another lyric is, "Each night before you go to bed, whisper a little prayer for me." Do you say your prayers?
Most definitely 3) Mama Michelle and Papa John were married in real life. It didn't end well -- not for the couple and not for the band. Do you believe you could work successfully with a romantic partner?
If I found one that could work successfully with me. 4) After the band broke up, Michelle tried her hand at acting and eventually became a regular on the nighttime soap, Knott's Landing. Of course, she could live off of her music royalties while she learned her new craft. If money was no object, what career would like to try?
Sunbathing 5)
There is a famous rumor -- completely false -- that Mama Cass died while eating a ham sandwich. Can you think of another urban legend?
not off the top of my head
6) In the 1960s, every high school girl wanted to wear her hair like Michelle and Cass -- long and straight. Can you recall a fashion trend from your school days?

Farah Faucett's 'feathers' 7) With the Fourth of July falling on Thursday, are you able to enjoy a looooong four-day holiday weekend?
Oh yeah 8) Many communities have parades to celebrate Independence Day. Have you ever ridden on a float or marched in a parade?
no, but I've been taken for a ride a time or two 9) In honor of the Fourth of July, name your favorite Founding Father.
My founding father, Larry.


  1. Dean is my favorite Founding Father, I selected another but I like your answer.

  2. Farah hair! Ah yes, I remember it well!

  3. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiit a minute, Larry?! LOL
    Love your answers, as usual :) Have a great weekend!

  4. Yep...I had those darn feathers. They could sure be a pain.
