Daddy's Little Man

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!

Saturday 9: Daddy's Little Man (1969)
... because it's Father's Day weekend

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is about an afternoon visit between a father and son. What are your plans for Saturday afternoon?
IF it doesn't rain...planting the plants everyone brought for our wedding! The only gift I really asked for. To remember everyone, and our day. 

 2) The lyrics talks about enjoying an ice cream cone. Do you have any ice cream in your freezer right now?
Yes, but I get sick from it, so I take a spoonful when the mood swings

 3) Sam's father hates it when she swears. When is the last time you cursed?
I couldn't even tell you.

 4) In a recent ranking of movie dads, Mufasa (Lion King) and Atticus (To Kill a Mockingbird) got very high marks. Who is your favorite movie or TV father?
Leave it to Beaver's dad.

 5) Sam's own father often traveled for business, and always remembered to bring her the little complimentary soaps, shampoos or body lotion he got from the hotel. When you take a trip, do you bring back souvenirs?
Hahaha, yeah, but not from the ROOM

 6) Back when Sam was in high school, it was her father who gave her driving lessons. Who taught you how to drive?
My cousin Dawna's dad. Uncle Donny. HIm and his brother had a  student driving school.

 7) Sam's own father is easy to buy for: every year he wants a new pair of loafers, so every year for Father's Day she gives him a DSW gift card. Would you rather receive a gift that someone chose, even though it might not be just right, or do you prefer a gift card or cash so you can get exactly what you want?
Chosen, from the heart. 

 8) For family barbecues, Sam's dad dons his "Kiss the Chef" apron and mans the Weber. What's the last thing you cooked on the grill?
Krauts and corn on the cob

 9) Sam's father satisfies his afternoon sugar craving with an almost endless stream of Butter Rum Lifesavers. When you crave a snack, do you usually want something sweet or salty?
Sweet, for sure!


  1. Congrats on your wedding. Plants are a great idea!

  2. Have fun planting!! Hope you have a great week!

  3. Congratulations on your nuptials! I think plants for presents is a superb idea. What a wonderful way to remember your special day.

  4. It's rained here for like two weeks. The ground is perfect for gardening

  5. I've always wanted to try sweetcorn on the grill - I'm too lazy to try other ways than microwaved!
