High Noon

Unfamiliar with this week's song. Hear it here.

1) What will you be (or were you) doing at high noon on Saturday? I suspect I will be meme-ing or otherwise farting around on the internet

2) In this song, Tex Ritter sings he doesn't know what fate awaits him. How strong is your sense of intuition? Tell us about a time you knew what would happen before it occurred. hmmm... when that happens it's generally something involvoing my sisters

3) This song was the theme of a hit movie western by the same name. It starred Gary Cooper as a small-town sheriff. When did you last interact with a member of law enforcement? I can't remember, it has been a very long time

4) Grace Kelly co-starred as the "fair-haired beauty" mentioned in this song. Four years later, she gave up films to become Her Serene Highness, Princess Grace of Monaco. Which job seems like more fun -- movie star or royal? I think royal sounds more fun

5) Though he cultivated a "just plain folk" persona, this week's featured artist, Tex Ritter, was really cosmopolitan and highly educated, earning a degree in economics from the University of Texas before going on to study pre-law at Northwestern. Do you think the "real you" is consistent with the image you convey? I think so

6) Tex Ritter was the father of Emmy-winning comedic actor, John Ritter. John is remembered fondly as the voice of Clifford, the Big Red Dog. Clifford appeals to children because he is "gentle, friendly, loyal, lovable and clumsy." Do any of those adjectives apply to you? I would say friendly, loyal, and lovable apply

7) Tex is also the grandfather of Jason Ritter, star of ABC-TV's Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. If you followed one of your grandparents into their line of work, what would you be doing? I would be the owner/operator of a gas station and carwash

8) In 1952, the year "High Noon" was popular, Stopette, the first antiperspirant deodorant spray, was introduced. Do you use a deodorant spray, stick or roll on? I use stick

9) Random question: What's something you have always wanted to own, but never have? a dog of my own

  1. I once thought about owning a car wash that would be connected to a Dairy Queen. I'm kinda glad that I went down the breakfast path instead.

  2. You love your car and road trips so much. Now I hear grandpa took care of them for a living. Maybe it's a genetic thing.

  3. Now I can't get the song "Car Wash" out of my head. I'd sing it for you, but I like you so I'll spare you. lol

  4. I am sorry you have never had a dog. Never too late for one, you know. Doggy kisses are nice.
