It Don't Come Easy

1) This was Ringo's first big hit as a solo artist. Who is your favorite member of his old, very famous group, The Beatles? I love each of them for different reasons. Maybe I connect with John more because of the impact his death had on my teen years. (PS--I had never seen this video! What a hoot!)

2) In this song, Ringo sings that you have to pay your dues. Do you belong to any organizations that require you to pay dues? I belong to Delta Kappa Gamma and American Association of University Women

3) He also sings, "you don't have to shout." When did you last raise your voice? hmmm... I did to be funny yesterday

4) Ringo has two piercings on each ear and one tattoo on each arm. Do you have more piercings or body art? I have 5 tattoos and one ear piercing in my left ear and three piercings in my right ear

5) Ringo gave his first wife, Maureen, a one-of-a-kind birthday gift. Frank Sinatra made a recording of "The Lady Is a Tramp" personalized to her. Tell us about one of your most memorable birthday celebrations. well, for my 40th birthday, my colleagues planned a week of birthday parties with different themes. I wonder what they'll do for 50!

6) Ringo appeared as Mr. Conductor on Thomas the Tank Engine. He recorded the narration for the entire first season in just a week. Tell us what you did last week. last week was a busy week for meetings and workshops as well as teaching

7) Ringo also did the narration for Ladybird children's books. Do you like audiobooks? I love audiobooks, especially when I'm knitting

8) As a boy in Liverpool, Ringo loved watching American westerns. His passion for the genre is reflected in the outfit he's wearing on the sleeve for "It Don't Come Easy." Do you like cowboy movies/shows? they aren't my favorite genre but I do watch and enjoy them

9) You know what else don't come easy? Nine questions every week. Crazy Sam has heard it all: this meme asks too many movie questions, too many questions about sports, too many questions that sound familiar ... OK, now it's your turn. Help a tired meme mistress out. Contribute a random question that is not about movies or sports (pro or collegiate) and has never been asked before on this meme. Sam will compile these for an all-random Saturday 9 in November. That way she'll get a much-appreciated week off. Thanks for your help! Sam, I feel your pain! ;-)

  • what is your favorite hand made object?

Knitting seems perfect for audio book reading. Thanks for the tip! Have a happy weekend, Kwizgiver.

I used to belong to AAUW but the local chapter got very weird, and I ended up quitting just so they'd leave me alone. I should revisit that sometime when I am feeling better.

I don't know why I am so shocked that you have tattoos.
Audiobooks are really nice to listen to.

I'm really looking forward to hearing about your birthday celebration.

And thanks for the questions!
