saturday 9

Back in the U.S.A.

From the archives, with some tweaks

1) This song lists seven cities -- New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, Chattanooga, Baton Rouge and St. Louis -- that Linda just loves. How many have you visited? New York

2) The lyrics refer to hamburgers sizzling on the grill. What toppings do you believe make a perfect burger? ketchup, mustard, relish, and onions

3) The original recording of this song by Chuck Berry has always been one of Linda Ronstadt's favorites, one she used to enjoy singing along with in the car. What's the most recent song you sang? Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

4) Linda performed The National Anthem at Game 3 of the 1977 World Series. The New York Yankees won both that game and the series. How is your baseball team doing this season? I don't really have a team
5) On the sleeve for this record, Linda was photographed on roller skates. Emergency rooms report a spike in wrist injuries, with people falling off skates and skateboards and jamming their wrists catching softballs. Have you recently been to the Emergency Room or Urgent Care? I was recently at the ER for 9 hours, most of which were waiting to be seen
6) It's July, so summer is in full swing. Bug bites are a big summer annoyance. Are you itching and scratching this morning? I am not

Since this is our last Saturday 9 before Independence Day, let's ask some questions related to the holiday. 
6) The Pennsylvania Evening Post was the first newspaper to print the Declaration of Independence. What's the most recent printed media you have read (newspaper, magazine, newsletter, etc.)? an instruction manual

7) In high school, Sam was crazy about American history and got good grades. Science was her worst subject. In high school, where did you shine? In what subject were your grades not so hot? in high school I was a shining star in extra-curricular activities!  my math grades were my constant struggle

8) The first 4th of July parade each year is held at 12:01 AM in Gatlinberg, TN. Will you attend a parade or fireworks to celebrate the 4th? I don't have any plans to

9) Americans love to celebrate our independence. In fact, there are more than 30 towns all across the US called Independence. There are two in MN alone (one outside Duluth, the other west of Minneapolis). Please google it and let us know: does your state have an Independence? there is not which surprises me

Hey! I thought you were a member of Red Sox Nation! I will assume that you, like all compassionate and discerning individuals, cannot bring yourself to cheer against Anthony Rizzo. :)

That's a long time to be in the ER. Hospitals are such scary places.

Math was my struggle also. I wanted to be good at it so bad.
Have you read On A Quiet Street by Serephina Nova Glass? It was a good one I read lately that you might enjoy too. I always look at your book list when I visit for ideas.
Loved your answers! Have a Happy 4th of July!

I love that song! And the Police!
I fell on my face over Trig in uni. Only later did I find out that it was easier than Geometry! Lesson Learned, always get tutored before you quit! lol

That is a long time to be waiting in an ER! I hope you were okay. Happy 4th!

If I lived in Maine I'd opt to go somewhere and lie back and look at all the stars rather than watch fireworks. I am in awe of skies that aren't rendered unseeable by light polution.
