The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia

1) The lyrics tell us about a young man who stopped at a bar named Webb's before heading home. What's the last restaurant or bar you visited? What did you order? I went to the Lakeview restaurant and ordered the buffalo chicken salad

2) In this video, Vicki Lawrence is obviously lip synching. If you had to participate in a competition, would you do better at karaoke or lip synching? And what song would you choose to perform? I would do better at lip synching and would probably choose a Christmas song, like "My Grown Up Christmas List"

3) Back when this song was popular, so was the Rubik's Cube. Can you solve that 3-D puzzle? I used to be proficient, but my next door neighbor could do it in seconds! He was amazing!

4) Vicki Lawrence is a hyphenate, meaning she's a comedienne-actress-singer. Using hyphens, describe yourself. teacher-knitter-friend

5) Back in the early 1970s, songwriter Bobby Russell first offered this song to Cher, who refused it. Give us the name of a song Cher did record. Believe! I love Cher.

6) Vicki Lawrence won her first big break playing Carol Burnett's kid sister because of her resemblance to the star. Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity? no

7) She also starred on Mama's Family in the role of matriarch of an argumentative Southern clan. As we head into the holiday season, do your plans involve a lot of family time? yes, and somehow I "volunteered" to prepare Thanksgiving dinner

8) After The Carol Burnett Show and Mama's Family, Vicki became a staple on daytime TV. She hosted Win, Lose or Draw and was a contestant on The Match Game and $25,000 Pyramid. Do you watch much daytime TV? I loved the game shows that were the afternoon staple

9) Random question provided by a Sat 9er: Bugs/insects. Do you like 'em or fear 'em? Tell us something/anything you know about them. not a fan of bugs, at all

I always liked Cher's movies more than her music for some reason
