Saturday Nine... Hey, I've Made The Big Times!

Come Monday
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 AuntieM4Cabs for recommending the Buffett theme

1) What will you be doing come Monday (Labor Day)?
I think I'll be going to the fair, not sure, but we'll see. 

2) This song is about a performer who is "heading up to San Francisco for the Labor Day weekend show." When you think of San Francisco, what's the first thing that comes to mind?
My cousins. I have 3 that live there

3) As he sings, Buffett tells us he's wearing Hush Puppies casual shoes. What's on your feet as you answer these nine questions?
i'm doing this barefootin'

4) So many Jimmy Buffett songs take place on or around the water. When was the last time you were on a boat?
In July. I love being on the boat.

 5) Everyone knows Jimmy Buffett can write music, but he also has more than half a dozen books to his credit. What's the last book you read?
The Bible/ And Devotions for Women by Jill Briscoe

6) Jimmy's persona is that of a simple beach bum, but in reality he's a conglomerate, with his own beverage company, more than a dozen restaurants and a couple hotels. He's so successful he has several homes, including a luxury mansion in the Hamptons! If you, like Buffett, could just take off and spend Labor Day weekend anywhere, where would you go? Who would you take along?
Montego Bay. I'd prefer to go alone but probably my ex.

7) This weekend may offer a golden opportunity for napping and sleeping in. Do you snore?

8) Labor Day was introduced to celebrate the achievements of the American worker. Yet this Recession has taken its toll on many of us laborers. Sam's brother, a movie projectionist, hasn't worked full-time in his chosen profession in more than a year. Is anyone close to you struggling with unemployment or underemployment? (If so, they are in our thoughts this weekend, too.)
Myself, if I may be selfish. I haven't worked at the school all summer and the dog biscuit biz is a little slow towards the end of the summer... 
9) Onto something happier ... Labor Day traditionally marks the beginning of the new school year. When she was a kid, Samantha was crazy for her brand new box of 96 Crayola Crayons. It even had a sharpener in the back! What do you remember about preparing to go back to school? If you're a parent with schoolage kids, are they ready?
I don't really think about my life back then. And the 5 kids I raised are all married with kids of their own... so this is kind of an 'N/A'

  1. I'm so glad to be done with the back to school, raising kids thing...
