Saturday 9 ~ Baby Love

You can see the others that participate in this fun meme at Saturday 9.

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: Baby Love (1964)

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

1) When this song was popular, the Supremes were known for their elaborate hairstyles, make up and full-length gowns. When was the last time you got dressed up? December, for my hubbys work Christmas party

2) "The girls," as they were known to the engineers and executives at Motown Records, were Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson and Diana Ross. They began singing together when they were high school classmates. Are you still in touch with any friends from your high school days? I am, and thanks to facebook, reconnected with several from high school

3) Mary Wilson was born in Mississippi and her family moved a great deal before settling in Detroit, where she fatefully met Florence and Diana. Were you uprooted often when you were a child? Or did you spend your school years in the same neighborhood? never uprooted - same school district from kindergarten to senior year

4) The Supremes began as a quartet called the Primettes. In addition to Mary, Flo and Diana, there was Betty McGlown. In 1960, Betty left the group to get married and was replaced by Barbara Martin. In 1962, Barbara left the group to have a baby. They quit trying to replace the fourth voice, soldiered on as a trio, and made pop history. Have you ever found yourself in a position similar to Betty's or Barbara's, where you had to make a difficult decision and choose between your personal life and your career? yes and no.... I had my own daycare for 17 years... and finally made the decision that I needed to close it - difficult in having to tell the parents - but needed to for my santity.

5) Thinking of babies and "baby love," is anyone in your life expecting a baby in 2018? nope... just had two babies the end of last year in the family

6) With twelve #1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, The Supremes remain America's most commercially successfully recording group, and this song (along with "Stop! In the Name of Love") is one of the most popular karaoke songs. If we handed you the mic this morning and absolutely insisted you perform, what song would you choose (any song, any genre)? America's Sweetheart by Elle King

7) Original group member Florence Ballard left the group in 1967. She died of cardiac arrest in 1976 at the age of 32. Since February is National Heart Month, it seems appropriate to ask: Is anyone in your life battling heart disease? no disease... but the hubs has high blood pressure

8) Florence Ballard's brother, Hank, wrote Chubby Checker's famous dance song, "The Twist." When did you last dance? last July at my Style Dots conference

9) Random question: Close your eyes and visualize the most beautiful place you've ever been. Now describe it to us. The beach, sitting on the shore listening to the waves is just so peaceful.

Saturday 9 ~ Boat Drinks

You can see the others that participate in this fun meme at Saturday 9.

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: Boat Drinks (1979)

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

1) Jimmy Buffett is singing about his bandmates watching hockey in a sports bar. Since it's Super Bowl weekend, our first question is: In cold weather, which sport to you watch most: football, hockey, or basketball? football

2) Jimmy sings it's just 20ยบ outside. How high will the mercury reach where you are today? right now its 18° and the high is 30° - so they say....and snow showers...a.l.l. day long....ugh

3) "Boat drinks" are mixed drinks designed to enhance the enjoyment of a boat ride or time on the beach. Popular boat drinks include The Tequila Sunrise, Cuba Libre, and Mimosa. When did you last sip an alcoholic beverage? Was it a boat drink? About a month ago - dinner at Olive Garden I had a Milan Mai Tai

4) Jimmy met his wife, Jane, in Key West at a bar called The Chart Room. Have you ever been to Key West? I have not, but its on my list of places to go.

5) Have you ever met anyone worth knowing at a bar? not really - not a bar person

6) While Keith Richard and Paul McCartney have made cameo appearances in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Jimmy Buffet has not. Producers have asked him, but he's always had to decline because of his touring schedule. Have you seen any of the Pirates/Jack Sparrow movies? yes/no.... they have been viewed here at the house by the guys.... I am in the room when they are wwatching them but I am not paying attention... not a fan of Johnny Depp.

7) When Jimmy gave the commencement address at the University of Miami, he showed up in flip-flops. How many pairs of flip-flops do you own? oh wow.... I have several...probably 10 or so

8) Jimmy has his own station on Sirius Radio. Do you subscribe to Sirius? I do not, the only time I have had sirius radio is when we had a car lease, and then purchased a new to us car.

9) Random question: What trend or fad from your youth do you hope never makes a comeback? bell bottoms
