saturday 9

1) We're celebrating the last holiday of summer by going country. Who is your favorite country music artist? Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton

2) Gretchen Wilson sings that on Tuesdays, she gets up before dawn. This morning, did you awaken on your own, or did you need an alarm clock? I set an alarm clock--I'm headed out of town in a few minutes

3) She tells us that she doesn't waste her time on manicures or spay tans. How about you? Have you recently spent any money at the salon? I get regular manicures

4) She sings that she's the first to clock in at work. Have you ever worked a job that required you to punch a time clock? oh yes, I've had a couple

5) Gretchen Wilson says she is a big fan of McDonald's and tries to eat there once a day when she's on tour. In terms of sales, America's 3 most popular fast-food lunch destinations are McDonald's, Starbucks and Subway. If you could choose a gift card to one of those three, which would you select? hmmm... probably Starbucks even though the nearest one is 2 hours away

6) Gretchen has endorsed Redneck Riviera Whiskey. What's your favorite adult beverage? I am a tequila fan--I love a margarita for hard liquor and I prefer white zinfandel or rose for wine

Since this Monday is Labor Day, the holiday established to celebrate the American worker … 

7) Approx. 10% of Americans are self employed. Have you ever been your own boss? no

8) According to Monster.com, 50% of workers have left a job to get away from a boss. Are you one of the 50%? no, but I can see it happening

9) Farmers feel the impact of extreme weather events. Have you ever had a job that required you to be outdoors most of the time? thankfully, no


  1. I don't drink alcohol at all but 2020 has certainly made me think I should start! My father's an alcoholic so I have stayed away from it since I was 18. Oddly, shortly after I was baptized, I had a "Jesus" experience wherein all alcohol suddenly smelled and tasted like coconut, which I cannot stand. So I no longer drink.

  2. You can use your Starbucks gift card on your road trip!

  3. Oh yes, Johnny Cash is great! I almost put him down too, but I didn't. Loved your answers! Have a great weekend!


  4. I am on a kick of Pomegranate martini

  5. I have never liked Starbucks. Too expensive and they are working too hard at competing with Peet's, which is where I get coffee (did you now that the guy who started Starbucks learned his coffee roasting from Peeet?) I chose Subway, but I really prefer Togo's locally.

  6. Really don't know where this old head was when it came to country singers. How could I forget Johnny Cash, and Dolly?

    And your Manicures are the stuff of Legends! Have a nice mini vaca. Hopefully that's what it is.

  7. I could go for a nice zinfandel
