Saturday Nine Meme

Time for Me to Fly

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: Time for Me to Fly (1978)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) How often have you flown so far this year?
2) Think back to your last flight. Was it pleasant, stressful, or just uneventful?
Pleasant. My brother and sister and I flew to the ATL. 
3) According to the Airports Council International, the world’s busiest airport is Atlanta's Hartsfield. Have you ever been to Atlanta?
Last October!!
4) This week’s featured band, REO Speedwagon, took their name from a truck. Have you ever driven a truck?
I drive my brother's Ford 250 once in awhile. I think I am badass when I do!
5) REO Speedwagon got their start in Champaign, Illinois, which is home to the U of I campus and, consequently, many bars. One of the most popular is the Blind Pig on Walnut Street. Give us the name of the bar, club or restaurant where you met up with friends in your younger days.
Tony's Hideaway. Mickeys. Orange Room and The Tomorrow Club
6) Recently, lead singer Kevin Cronin appeared on an infomercial, hawking TimeLife’s two CD set of Ultimate Rock Ballads. Have you ever purchased anything from TV?
I bought a limb cutter from QVC and something from HSN, but i can't remember what
7) This song is from the CD, You Can Tune a Piano, but You Can’t Tunafish. Is there a can of tuna in your kitchen right now?
About 6 of them. Brenden LOVES Antone's salads in his lunch
8) You Can Tuna Piano, but You Can’t Tunafish is available on eBay on vinyl, CD, cassette and 8 track. Did you have an 8 track player?
No, but my friends did. 
9) In 1978, when this song was popular, the first Susan B. Anthony Dollar was minted. How much do you have in coins in your wallet right now?
About $5 in change. I have to wash my quilt next week. 


  1. Driving a truck is just brilliant fun isn't it?

  2. My wallet is down to 88 cents because of my laundry trip last week. Before that, I had a ton of quarters saved up.

  3. I made Mr BC get rid of his tracks when his boom box quit working.

  4. A limb cutter? Now there's an unexpected purchase.

    1. My garage is FULL of UNUSUAL purchases as well ;)

  5. i'm glad your flight was pleasant! atlanta is a nice place!

  6. Sometimes QVC has some unique items that turn out to be really good
