Every Time You Go Away

1) This song is about separation. Who is the last person you said goodbye (or maybe just "so long") to? my bestie and I had breakfast together

2) This week's featured artist, Paul Young, was a gifted athlete during his school days and briefly played professional football (aka soccer). Sam enjoys playing tennis, though her serve doesn't give Serena Williams anything to worry about. What's something you enjoy doing, even if you don't excel? knitting

3) Mr. Young and his wife Stacy were married for 31 years, until her death in 2018. What do you think is the key to a happy marriage? communication

4) Paul Young's performance of this hit song was one of the highlights of the July 1985 Live Aid Concert. This international benefit raised more than $100 million to alleviate hunger in Ethiopia. Tell us about a charity you support. I support a lot of local charities--and get hit up for EVERY fundraiser at school

5) This song was written by Daryl Hall, of Hall and Oates. What's your favorite Hall and Oates song? "Kiss On My List"

6) In 1985, when this song was popular, the New Coke was unsuccessfully introduced. What's the last beverage you drank? water

7) In 1985, the New York Stock Exchange had to close because of Hurricane Gloria. Has a hurricane shared your name? (Find a list of recent/upcoming storm names here.) 2001

8) 1985 was the year that the Titanic wreckage was discovered. There have been at least 11 movies and TV shows about the fatal voyage. Have you seen any of them? I have seen my fair share--in 1985 my dad was obsessed with the Titanic find and we watched and read everything we could get our hands on!

9) Random question: Would you rather own and run a coffee shop or a shoe store? Why? I would rather run a shoe store because I have such a hard time finding comfortable shoes--so I would specialize in cute but comfortable, practical shoes and sandals

Your dad should sit down with my oldest friend. She's a Titaniac!

YES! Preach girl about the shoes! Maybe it is a teacher thing being on your feet all day. I would enjoy the same..cute and practical...must be comfortable first. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

I have a hard time with shoes. Mostly I just wear sneakers now and have given up on fashion.

I was so excited to find a shoe store just like you described and pay it a visit yesterday...would you believe I still couldn't find any truly comfortable shoes?
