I Got You, Babe

1) Popular music has produced almost countless groups, but not that many duos. Besides Sonny & Cher, can you name another? Hall & Oates are a particular favorite of mine

2) Hearing this recording from his clock radio is how Bill Murray woke up every morning in Groundhog Day. What woke you up this morning? me! It was nice to not have an alarm wake me up.

3) When she was growing up, Cher practiced her autograph for when she became a star. Is your signature legible? Or is it more of a scrawl? it's legible, but not beautiful

4) In addition to show biz, Sonny & Cher had many careers: Sonny was a restauranteur and politician, Cher is an interior designer. Would you like to try your hand at any of those professions? I would be disastrous at them!

5) In 1965, when this song topped the charts, Sonny and Cher were as famous for their wardrobe as for their music. Sonny was fond of tall, heavy-heeled boots while Cher often paired granny dresses with bare feet. What's on your feet right now? my feet are bare

6) By 1968, their career crashed. Cher's early attempts as a movie actress failed, their records stopped selling and the IRS came after them for back taxes. Have you ever been audited? no!!

7) In 1971 they were on top again with their TV show. But their marriage was coming apart. Sonny said, "For the last 5 years I worried about our career, not about us." Have you ever been guilty of putting career before relationship? no

8) By 1972 they were living separate lives -- in the same house. For the sake of The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, they pretended to be happily married another year and a half. Tell us about a time when you pretended to be happy, but weren't. the year I started this blog, 2006.

9) While their separation and divorce were bitter, they resumed their friendship when Cher showed up at the opening of his restaurant in 1976. Have you ever made the first move in repairing a relationship? yes, I did recently and it was wonderful to reconnect

As a primary teacher my printing is always very good, but not using cursive regularly anymore, it's gotten bad. When I have to write notes to a colleague or a parent, I usually try a couple of times and get so tired of the time it takes and the mess of it, I head to the computer.
Hall and Oates...yes!

My signature is horrible! Before I retired I had to review records and sign them, so I must have signed my name a couple hundred times a day. So it became just a squiggle.

Facebook, while a time suck, has been wonderful in reconnecting people. I've been in touch with cousins I didn't even know I had - and never would have! :)

Oh, I love Hall and Oats! I must not have been really awake this am. I started blogging in May of 2004- late in the month apparently. lol. One post!

I'm with you. I've considered other professions, but those three were never on the list.
