Saturday 9

American Pie

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: American Pie (1971)

... because Country Dew suggested it

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

1) In the lyrics, Don McLean refers to having once been a paper boy. When you were a kid, what job or household chores did you do for spending money? Watched my younger siblings

2) Them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye. What's the last drink you ordered? A PMFer

3) He drove to the levee but it was dry. When is the last time it rained where you are? yesterday

4) When McLean was working on the song, he wrote the lyrics out in long hand. It took him 16 pages of lined notebook paper. Today it's a laptop/smartphone/tablet world, and Sam can't remember the last time she hand wrote anything longer than a sign on her front door that read, "Bell broken. Plz knock." What about you? What's the last thing you wrote with pen or pencil? yesterday, writing down the info for a job interview for Monday

5) McLean's most recent CD is called "Addicted to Black," in reference to Olivia in The Twelfth Night. Quick! Without looking it up, name another character from Shakespeare. Juliet

6) Don was born in New Rochelle, New York, which was named one of The Best Walking Cities in America by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). What about your neighborhood? Is it easily walkable? I guess so

7) In 1971, the year this song was popular, Walt Disney World officially opened. Have you ever been to DisneyLand or Disney World? I have been to Disney World 3 times

8) Also in 1971, Mattel introduced Malibu Barbie. This doll was a "sun-loving California girl" and had a distinct tan. Have you ever used a tanning bed? yep

9) American Pie is also the name of a 1999 movie. Have you seen it? nope



  1. PMFer -- is that the shot with Southern Comfort?

  2. Good luck with the job interview!

  3. Good luck with the job interview, I hope it works out for you.

  4. Good luck on the interview! And PMFer - sounds interesting, I'm loving all the new drinks I'm learning about this morning!

  5. Good luck with the interview. Hope it goes well.

  6. Now you have me wondering what a PMFer is.... :)

  7. This is what is in the PMFer I get at my favorite restaurant:

    Purple Mother F**ker
    Drink Type: Cocktail

    2 oz. Southern Comfort (more Southern Comfort drinks)
    2 oz. Blue Curacao (more Blue Curacao drinks)
    Cranberry Juice (more Cranberry Juice drinks)

  8. That PMFer sounds pretty good, too. Hmmm.. Strawberry Margarita, PMFer, or Cadillac Margarita. I want a drink!

    Best wishes for the Job interview. And, I am so jealous about every body else's rain! Boo hoo!


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you liked your visit! Be blessed!
