Saturday 9 ~ Secret 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!

Secret Love (1953)

Unfamiliar with this week's song. Hear it here.

Rest in peace, Doris Day (1922-2019)

1) In this song Doris admits she's spoken to the stars, "the way dreamers often do." Do you often daydream? all the time!

2) What's the last secret you kept? (It doesn't have to be romantic.) I can't think of any secrets

3) While "Secret Love" was one of Miss Day's best-selling records, and the song won an Oscar, she did not perform it at the Academy Awards Ceremony. She said she was just too nervous to sing it live before an international television audience and an auditorium full of entertainment professionals. When did you last suffer an attack of nerves? probably the last time I went to the dentist

4) Doris' well-publicized attack of Oscar stage fright was unexpected because she began her career as a band singer, performing before live audiences every night. But she reportedly did develop more phobias over the years, including a fear of flying. Is there anything that scares you now, as an adult, that didn't frighten you as a child? the fear of losing one of my boys

5) Doris Day made 39 movies between 1948 and 1968. She said one of her favorite things about filmmaking was working with costume designers on her wardrobe. Do you enjoy shopping for clothes? sometimes....

6) Doris confessed that when she had to lose weight for a role, she gave up ice cream. If we checked your freezer, would we find any ice cream? yep, a gallon of vanilla, so I can make my banana splits

7) In 1985 she hosted a cable show called Doris Day's Best Friends. She used the show as a platform to promote pet adoptions and animal welfare. Most of the guests were celebrity friends who reportedly donated their salaries for appearing on the show to Doris' pet foundation. Did you more recently ask a friend for a favor, or perform a favor for a friend? performed a favor

8) For more than 20 years, Doris co-owned the Cypress Inn in Carmel, CA. The Inn expects to continue on without her, and maintain the pet-friendly policies she introduced. Have you ever traveled with your dog or cat? she has been in the car with me... but as for traveling for vacation... no

9) Random question: What's the last thing you complained about? work...always work....


  1. AW, I used to fear my dentist until we changed and I love our new one.. maybe a change would be good for you!Oh, and now I have themm use this water pressure thing to clean my teeth instead of the scrape and pick... Much better! hahahah~

    1. For me.... probably not... I have had a fear of the dentist for years.... and have seen a few different ones over the years.... just thinking about it, or hearing someone say that they have to go to the dentist stresses me out!

  2. FEAR the dentist! Boy, I can identify … actually, his hygienist. You know, years ago I read where dentists have the highest rate of suicide. Sad.

  3. Fun trivia fact, my town is the birthplace of the banana split. We have a weekend celebration and there is even a statue of one!

  4. Both of my sisters and two of my friends are TERRIFIED of the dentist. I don't know why but I escaped that particular phobia. Maybe because I had braces and spent so much time in the orthodontist's office?

  5. Dentists are the worst. Yup.. scared of that as well. I used to eat banana splits when my grandfather would take me on train rides and we'd end up in Woolworth having lunch. Good memories.

  6. I fear losing my son too. I am actually not scared of the dentist. I loved your answers! Have a great weekend!

  7. The dentist is a definite fear of mine, too!

  8. I would think fear of losing a child would be a great one.


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