satUrday nine.

Band on the Run
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 is about a band of musicians that escapes on an adventure. Do you consider yourself spontaneous and adventurous?

2) Paul McCartney and Wings traveled all the way to Lagos, Nigeria, to record Band on the Run. That's a long, long way from London. What's the farthest from home you've ever been?
My home for 4 years. CA.

3) Wings featured Linda McCartney on keyboards. Paul said that when Linda died, after almost 30 years together, he lost the love of his life. Who is the love of your life? Or have you yet to meet him/her?
I've met him. The first and the last. I'm  not trying anymore.
4) Paul has said he's very proud of Band on the Run, his most successful post-Beatles album. Brag a little. Tell us something you're proud of.
I only have 5 more months and I will have my Associates Degree in Business Management. I own my own business selling dog biscuits. Healthy, no additives. Delish! 5) Paul's birth certificate reads "James Paul McCartney." He's named for his father, Jim. Are you named after anyone?
THE Virgin. 6) Paul enjoys oil painting in his spare time. What's one of your hobbies?
Since redoing my home, I have taken up a little photography. I pick the colors that match the rooms and frame them.
7) 20 Forthlin Road, Paul McCartney's boyhood home, has been turned into a museum by the British government. It's a modest 2 bedroom cottage, with a drainpipe that Paul used to climb to sneak in after curfew. How would you describe your childhood home?

8) Paul is 5'11". How tall are you?
5'3" 9) Actor Christopher Lee is on the album cover. He played Dracula in a series of movies in the 1950s and 1960s. Who is your favorite vampire?
since he's the only one I know of, I'll go with Christopher Lee.


  1. I know that life could be a little more fun, if I had spontaneity.

  2. This Halloween, when your local TV station shows it, you should take in the original Dracula movie from the 1930s. Starring a foreign born actor named Bella Lugosi. He came to America in the 1920s and played Count Dracula, from the Bram Stoker classic, on the Broadway stage. Film producers brought him out to Hollywood and the rest is, as they say, history. The movie is very dated and campy, but Dracula is still a wonderful character and Bella Lugosi's performance is definitive. It would be a shame if you never, ever saw it.

  3. I've just started to make my own dog biscuits. It's amazing what kinds of junk goes into the store bought ones.
