saturday 9

What Hurts the Most

1) Are you a veteran? Are there veterans in your family? Do you know anyone who is active military? (We are grateful and want to hear about it.) Both of my brothers in law are military men. I have several students who are active military.

2) Memorial Day kicks off the summer season. What's your favorite picnic food? chips

3) Let's celebrate the Memorial Day holiday with ice cream. What's your favorite flavor? Cone or cup? I like a sugar cone with something chocolate

4) This marks the weekend when Americans step up their outdoor activity and do things they may not have been able to do during the winter months. For example, when is the last time you rode a bike? it has been about ten years

5) Or went hiking? it has been two weeks

6) Or rode a horse? it has been about 43 years

7) Or toasted a marshmallow? it has been a year

8) As you answer these questions, is there an air conditioner or fan on? no, but the windows are open

9) Crazy Sam needs your help: What song or a performer would you like to see featured in a Saturday 9 this summer? You'll begin seeing your suggestions as Saturday 9 themes in mid-June. Thanks! Taylor Swift has a lot of songs with quotable lyrics, Billy Joel, The Fixx, Hall & Oates, Enya, Duncan Shiek, and Del Amitri

How do you remember it was 43 years ago? Was it especially memorable (hopefully in a good way)?

In all the times Sat 9 has existed, Hall & Oates has never been featured! Thanks for the suggestion.

I think a chocolate ice cream cone would be delish. I haven't had ice cream since I was 12, when they determined that milk set off my asthma. So eating ice cream is now on my bucket list.

I really need to take up bike riding again. Horseback riding...not so much.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
