Saturday 9

Saturday 9: The Sun Rising

1. When was the last time that you watched a sunrise? Who were you with? I truly don't recall the last time. However, the most beautiful time was in Switzerland. The sky looked pink as the sun rose over the Alps. I have never seen a pink sky before or since.

2. If President Obama promised he'd do one thing you asked, what would you ask him to do? Listen to Joe Biden and seriously commit to a high speed railroad system. We have to stop driving so much in this country! Our addiction to gas/oil is killing us.

3. What is one experience that has strengthened your character the most so far? My dad's sudden death, and the emotional toll of everything between us that was left unresolved.

4. What is the first thing that you usually do after completing Saturday 9? There's no "usually" answer to this question. But today I'll be putting on my makeup, brushing my teeth, and leaving for the dentist.

5. Tell us about someone either in your life or in the blogosphere that you think is extremely funny. My oldest friend has always been able to make me laugh, often and hard. They are all "you had to be there" moments, but oh, how I have laughed during those moments.

6. Where was the last bed that you slept in that was not your own? While I was on vacation in Colonial Williamsburg. Though since I paid for the room, I guess technically it was my own.

7. Have you ever been too drunk to remember anything? I don't remember.

8. Have you ever licked something to clean it? Yes. Most recently, a paper cut on my index finger.

9. Who, outside of family or a S/O, has influenced your life the most? Sir Paul


  1. you are lucky to have that friend :)

    who give you reasons to laugh and smile :)

  2. The dentist on a Saturday? Have fun!

  3. That must have been an amazing sunrise.

    Have a great Saturday!

  4. I wrote in my comments that I agree with you. I didn't mean it was John & the Beatles. I think Paul was every bit the genius of John. Musically the journey from Rubber Soul to Let it Be was Paul's. But John had the moral base and political influence. But without the two there would not be The Beatles. They real were something together. I sat center stage (or rather stood) for Paul at a Wings concert in Boston in 1976. I had been contracted for the night as a guard. When I arrive at The Boston Garden the head guy said, "I heard you are the world's best Beatles fan. You get center stage. Go Cubs!
