Saturday 9

Rocky Mountain High

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: Rocky Mountain High (1975)

... because Bev recommended John Denver

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

1) In this song, Denver sings that he was "born in the summer of his 27th year," because that's when he discovered the place where he felt most at home. What do you remember about your 27th year? (If it hasn't happened yet, what do you want to happen when you're 27?)
I was busy raising my 2 step kids,  and my girlfriends daughter. Life was good! 

2) In 2007, the Colorado General Assembly named this one of the state's two official songs. (The other is "Where the Columbines Grow.") Do you know your state song?
I guess I didn't even realize states HAD a song!!

3) John Denver was a dedicated environmentalist who wrote an anthem about Earth Day. Are you careful about your energy consumption? Do you recycle?
  4) 1975 is also the year that Denver released a collection of holiday songs called Rocky Mountain Christmas. On this August day, what's the first carol that comes to mind?
The First Noel

5) Denver dabbled in photography in his spare time and friends say he was quite good. Tell us about your hobbies.
Also photography, love taking pictures. Writing. I am starting my first book. Just in 'blogform' right now...and probably for many years!
  6) In 1975, when this song was popular, mood rings were all the rage. It was said that the ring reflected the wearer's mood. Black = anxious/stressed, orange = worried, green = normal, blue = happy, pink = as good as it gets. As you respond to this week's Saturday 9, what color would your mood ring be?
  7) Pet Rocks were 1975's other odd cultural phenomenon. Do you have any real-life, breathing pets?

8) 1975 saw the premiere of Wheel of Fortune. Are you good at word puzzles?
Lets go with 'No'. 
  9) Random question: Did you sleep well last night?


  1. A good night's sleep is precious. I'm finding that the hard way.

    1. I have so many nights that sleep does not come easy, but these nights when the temps are cooler and there is a slight breeze ..... ohhh boy. xoxo

    1. Thank you. They are my babies, for sure. xoxo

  3. Sleeping is so delicious. Glad you did, and wish it could be every night, too.

    And your pets are so sweet. I wish I could have three dogs and a cat,too.

  4. Right? Who even cares about a state song?
