If I Knew You Were Comin'

1) This song is performed by a woman who is positively tickled to have unexpected company. How do you feel when people drop by unannounced?
NO--stay away!

2) She is clearly proud of her skills in the kitchen. Do you enjoy baking? Cooking?
I used to bake and cook a lot but I don't anymore, it's too much fuss and muss

3) Reference is made to hiring a band. Tell us the last time you were at an event with live music. in NYC there was a band playing in a restaurant we went to (I can't remember the name of the place and I'm too lazy to look it up)

4) After making recordings in the early 1950s, Eileen Barton appeared on daytime TV in the early 1960s -- including a game show called Video Village. Let's say we're all headed to a TV game show taping this morning. Would you volunteer to appear as a contestant? Or would you rather just stay in the audience? I would rather watch, but I'd be a good sport and play to win if I was a contestant

5) In 1961, Ms. Barton got married in Juarez, Mexico. What's the longest distance you've ever traveled to attend a wedding? Pennsylvania for my niece's wedding in 2013

6) In 1950, when this song was popular, the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup. Are you looking forward to the upcoming NHL season? I will occasionally look in on a game

7) 1950 also marks the first time anyone in the United States paid by credit card. Do you pay with a credit card to get rewards? If yes, what rewards are you accumulating (points, cash back, airline miles)? I can trade in my points for gift cards

8) In 1950, an athlete named Florence Chadwick swam the English Channel. Are you a good swimmer? I am ok

9) Random question: Think about the last "white lie" you told. Was it to spare someone's feelings, or to make your day go more smoothly? to spare someone's feelings

I'll be in the audience rooting for you to win and jump up and down with you when you do.

"Be a good sport." We need more good sports these days - in all arenas.

I'm with Country Dew on that one! Good sports are few and far between in all walks of life these days.

I'll cheer on the contestant, and double loudly if it's you!

I use my Discover cashback points for gift cards. It's a painless way to give someone (usually my niece) a nicer present than I otherwise could afford.
