saturday 9

1) This song is about a little girl who runs after her daddy. When is the last time you ran? Were you trying to get somewhere in a hurry, or playing a sport?  the last time I ran was.... so long ago, I can't even remember but it must have been trying to get somewhere in a hurry

2) This song was a top ten hit for Wayne Newton. Mr. Newton is better known for his TV work, having made more than 150 appearances since 1963. Have you ever been on TV? Or in a YouTube video? I have been on TV, interviewed by the local news and I have been in the background of a YouTube video

3) The road leading to Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport is named Wayne Newton Blvd. in his honor. When is the last time you were at an airport? Were you flying somewhere, picking someone up, or dropping them off? I was picking up a suitcase that didn't make it home with my colleague and since I live in the town where the airport is, I offered to save him the trip

4) Wayne says Elvis Presley haunts Las Vegas, and believes that The King of Rock and Roll has given him performing and parenting tips from beyond the grave. When did you last see Elvis? On TV, on a t-shirt, poster or magazine cover, or as a ghostly apparition? I saw Elvis on a t-shirt

5) When Sam walks with her own dad, the problem isn't that he walks fast. It's that he's always stopping to pick up litter he finds on the grass. Litterbugs are his pet peeve. What's your pet peeve? My biggest pet peeve right now is people refusing to wear masks in public places

6) Sam's own father often traveled for business, and always gave her the complimentary soaps, shampoos or body lotion he got from the hotel. When she went away to college, she used her collection of little bottles and was grateful for all the money they saved her. What's something you've done recently to economize?  well, it wasn't intentional but I stopped my bi-monthly manicures

7) It was her father who taught Sam to drive. Are you a better student or teacher? so, here's the deal--if I'm interested in the subject, I am an excellent student but if it's something I'm not terribly interested in, I would rather teach

8) Sam's father also always asks if her car in "tip top" condition. Most recently he reminded her to test her headlights, tail lights and turn signals while the car is parked to make sure they're all working. Do you have a car maintenance tip to share? no, but on my Amazon wishlist is a tire pressure gauge so I can learn to do that myself

9) Sam's father satisfies his afternoon sugar craving with an almost endless stream of Butter Rum Lifesavers. Do you usually enjoy a between meal snack? not usually, but I wouldn't turn one down

Tire pressure gauge! Of all my dad's car doo-dads, that one was my favorite. I have no idea how to use it, but I liked playing with it.

Oh I am the same way about learning. If it is high interest, I am the best student.
Let me know how you like The Guest List. I saw you reading that on Goodreads, and I thought is sounded good. I read The Silent Patient yesterday and loved that! Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

I have my own tire pressure gauge. It looks like a big chunky tire. I can read that, but I don't like to put the air in. I let Tim do that. LOL

I have a tire pressure gauge that I can use if I need it. What is the thing with masks? Why is that so hard?
