saturday 9


1) In this song, Johnnie Ray assures us we'll feel better if we cry. Do you agree? oh, yes!

2) He also mentions waking from a dream, believing it was real. Has that ever happened to you? occasionally, yes

3) Because this record was such a massive hit, Johnnie Ray was nicknamed "The Prince of Wails." Without looking it up, do you know who is currently the Prince of Wales? that would be Prince Charles

4) To cash in on the success of this single, 20th Century Fox cast Johnnie Ray in a big-budget musical, There's No Business Like Show Business. Today it's best remembered as a Marilyn Monroe movie. Have you seen many of Marilyn's films? I've seen a few

5) After graduating from high school, Johnnie worked at low-paying jobs, including bus boy and soda jerk. He found he made better tips when he began playing piano in restaurants. Have you ever worked for tips? I waitressed--I was terrible at it because I was slow and couldn't hoist the tray over my shoulder, but I made great tips because of my personality

6) In 1969, Johnnie was in the news a lot again because he performed with Judy Garland during her European tour and was best man at her wedding to Mickey Deans. Tell us what you wore to the most recent wedding you attended. I wore a blue wrap dress with a chunky necklace

7) In 1952, when this song was a hit, Mr. Potato Head made his debut. It was the first toy advertised on television. What TV commercial have you seen recently? it was for prescription medication but I didn't pay attention so I have no idea what it treats

8) Also in 1952, chlorophyll was all the rage for banishing bad breath. Colgate led the way by adding it to their toothpaste. Do you use gum, mints, mouthwash, or breath strips? peppermints

9) Random question -- Congratulations! You won a free three night/two day weekend for two in Las Vegas! The weather is predicted to be sunny and 65º each day you're there. It's 12:00 noon on your first day. Are we most likely to find you: a) gambling in the casino or b) having breakfast in bed or c) outside, enjoying the sun and the sights? enjoying the sun and sights!

Enjoying the sights for sure! Especially with how cold it is here...who has time to sit inside when its warm and sunny out while on trip!??! Happy Saturday!

CountryDew said...

Apparently no one wants to sit inside and gamble amongst the Sat 9ers. We're all aching to be outside!

Of course you knew Prince Charles. I bet you (like me) are excited about the upcoming arrival of his fifth grandchild! (Can you imagine Diana a grandmother?)

Lori said...

We should all go to Vegas together to enjoy the outside. Diana is taking us to photograph sunsets in the desert! Beautiful, yes? Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

The drug company is appalled you can’t remember the product. But I’m not surprised, we see so many drug ads these days.

It seems like this is a group where most of us would be outside enjoying the Vegas weather rather than locked away in a casino.

I’d be out there scanning known rock digs- there are TONS of them out there in that desert. We could have a meet up for dinner or a play! Let’s Do this! 🤩

I hate those drug ads. This is the most wonderful thing followed by all the horrible side effects. Ugg.
