April Love

1) In this song, Pat Boone sings that April love is a wonder reserved for the very young. Do you think the sensation of falling in love changes as we grow older? Because I am more secure in what I want from a partner I do think the sensation of falling in love changes

2) "April Love" reached #1 on the charts. Between this song and "Love Letters in the Sand," Pat Boone had a career year. Only one artist sold more records in 1957: Elvis Presley. When you think of Elvis, what's the first song that comes to mind? "A Little Less Conversation"

3) Pat was extremely busy in high school. He wrote for the school paper, ran track, and acted in school plays. Share a memory of your extracurricular activities during high school. Senior year I was editor of the yearbook and president of the drama club

4) It was his track coach who introduced Pat to the new girl in school, Shirley Foley. Three years later Pat and Shirley married, and remained man and wife for 65 years, until her death earlier this year. Who is the longest married couple you know? hmmm... off the top of my head it's my sister and her husband with 37 years

5) Pat has lived in the same house for more than 60 years. He once received an offer to sell it for $18,000,000 but turned it down because it's the Boone family home and he simply doesn't want to leave. Do you plan on moving in the foreseeable future? I do not plan to move

6) Pat has a warm friendship with his neighbors, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Pat has mentioned in interviews that he has enjoyed bike rides around Beverly Hills with Sharon. Tell us about one of your neighbors. I have a new neighbor--and so far he's quiet and hasn't parked in my parking spot

7) Mr. Boone was very critical of Barack Obama, enthusiastically supports Donald Trump, and has appeared on Fox News to express his views. How do you feel about celebrities talking politics? I don't really pay attention to them

8) In 1957, the year this song was popular, Dr. Ian Donald pioneered the use of ultrasound technology. Today ultrasounds are commonly used by doctors in diagnosing conditions affecting the eyes, blood vessels, kidneys, gall bladder and more. Have you ever had an ultrasound? yes, I have

9) Random question: You're sitting alone in a restaurant, waiting for a friend. The waiter brings you a drink and the compliments of a member of the opposite sex seated at the bar. What's your reaction? Are you flattered, shocked, embarrassed, intrigued or annoyed? intrigued--but in all honesty, I don't drink very often so it would probably go to waste.

"He hasn't parked in my parking spot." Oh that made me laugh.

Lori said...

yes! The he hasn't parked in my spot made me laugh too!
I really hope this person sends me sweet tea or something I will actually drink. I do not drink at all. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

That's a very insightful and spot on answer for question 1. wow.. so true!

And, I think it's best not to pay any attention to any of the talking heads at this time. I'm sooo over this thing.
That last question was sort of off the wall. lol.. you and I don't drink that often but it would be flattering and intriguing.

Have a happy week, Kwizgiver.
