Little Things

1) In this song, Bobby Goldsboro celebrates the "little things" that delight him, like seeing his girl smile. What are some little every day things that reliably lighten your mood? looking at my e-book library and my yarn stash

2) Bobby is a lifelong sports fan. While in high school, he came to terms with physical limitations -- slender build, slow speed -- that would prevent him from having a career as a professional athlete. That's when he turned his attention to music. Given your choice, would you rather make your living in music or sports? Explain your decision. oh--without a doubt, music--especially since I started taking voice lessons

3) Shortly before "Little Things" was released, Bobby toured England for two weeks, backing up Roy Orbison. They opened for The Beatles. Bobby fondly recalls spending time with Paul McCartney, teaching him how to imitate the croak of an Alabama tree frog. Are you good at imitations (human or otherwise)? no, not at all

4) Back in the States, Goldsboro (again with Orbison) opened for the Rolling Stones in New York. Which band did you listen to more recently, the Stones or the Beatles? the Beatles

5) Bobby worked on projects with Burt Reynolds, doing the music for the movie Gator and the TV show Evening Shade. Burt said it was not only Bobby's musical ability but also his wit that made him fun to work with. What qualities do you value in a coworker? I like creativity and being open to new trends, being willing to dabble with technology is also a plus

6) These days, Bobby spends more time painting than performing music. He regularly donates his artwork to be auctioned off for charity. Have you ever tried your hand at painting? not really

7) In 1964, when this song was on the radio, women spent more on styling gels and sprays than they do today. Are you having a good hair day? Or has the pandemic made dealing with your hair something of an adventure?
I have been having really good hair since the stay at home order, which is sad because no one can see it

8) Nationally and internationally, one of 1964's biggest news stories was the marriage of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The bride wore a yellow dress and white and yellow flowers in her hair. The groom was decked out in a sedate dark suit with a red tie and a yellow boutonniere. What did you wear the last time you got really dressed up? jeepers, I can't even remember

9) Random question: Imagine you're stranded on a desert island with a complete stranger. Would you prefer your one and only companion be a man or a woman? I wouldn't care as long as the person has honed their survival skills!

I can't recall the last time I dressed up, either. I wonder if quarantine is fogging our memories.

Stacy said...

Those are really good traits for a coworker in your profession!
Yeah...it's kind of a bummer to have a good hair day when there's no one around to see it.

#7 = PHOTOS!!!

Annie said...

I hope your good hair days continue on forever :) And totally agree with a skillful person for #9.

Lori said...

Yes, we do agree on #9!
I am about out of books to read. We went to the library before the shut down and checked out a lot, but I have read through them already. I need them to open. hahahahaha. It is movies, clothing stores and restaurants for some. It is the library for me. I need to look at their online resources I guess. Our state is opening on Monday, but that does not include the library. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

I am so deep in this MBA that I am not reading for fun anymore. Finance is kicking my butt, and I've got like 8 new books to read, and no spoons for the reading (The Spoon Theory is real...google it). Anyhow, come to NM, the welcome mat is out :)
