Saturday Nine

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: Hungry (1966)
... because it's 4th of July

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

1) Are you eating anything as you respond to these questions?
Not a thing.

2) Paul Revere and the Raiders performed in Revolutionary garb. Have you ever worked at a job that required you to wear a uniform?
Pastry Chef for 35 years... yes.

 3) The "Paul Revere" of Raiders fame was born Paul Revere Dick in Boise, Idaho. What else is Idaho known for?
My cousin Donald and his wife Carleen live there :)

4) The original Paul Revere was a silversmith by trade,  known for making church bells. Can you hear church bells from your home?
No, but gunfire 24/7!! Like church bells for the hood!

5) In April, 1775, Paul Revere literally rode into history when he galloped into the night, spreading the word that "the British are coming." Name another Revolutionary War-era hero.
Ethan Allen. Turns out he's my favorite furniture designer, as well!! 

 6) Historians tell us that Revere's famous "midnight ride" actually took place between 9:00 and 10:00 PM. When is your usual bedtime?

7) Earlier this year, officials from Boston's Museum of Fine Arts uncovered a time capsule buried in 1795 by Paul Revere and Gov. Sam Adams. It included coins and newspapers. If you were to bury a time capsule that reflects American life in 2015, what would it include?
Hmmmmm... idk.


8) Will you attend a fireworks display during the 4th of July weekend?
Doubt it. I need to be home with Grace, who FREAKS on firework holidays.

9) What's your preferred way to celebrate Independence Day -- a parade, a picnic, or both?
A little cookout with family.


  1. Aww, poor Grace! I am not a fan of fireworks, either.

    1. I know, she is such a tough cookie otherwise!!! xoxo

  2. Happy 4th. I hope the fireworks aren't too hard on the dogs. The cows don't like them, either.

  3. My dogs were freaking out last night because my neighbor was shooting those things off.

  4. Yep, we're home with the pup, too. One of my DDs lived in a place where there was gunfire every night. "City Heights", where our little feral dog was picked up off the streets.
