Time For Livin'

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is about taking "time for life." Do you have a busy, highly-scheduled Saturday planned? Or will you have an opportunity to just relax and enjoy? I had a manicure and then I'm meeting a friend for lunch--a leisurely day
2) Lead singer Larry Ramos begins by telling us he likes to kick off his shoes and go barefoot. How about you? Do you like to feel "the good earth under your feet?" I like going barefoot--or at least sock-less
3) He sings that once he took off his watch, he found he had all the time in the world. Tell us about your watch. I do not wear a watch

4) With lyrics that include words like "grooving" and "hang-ups," this song is very much a product of its time. Share some of the slang you used during your adolescent years. I remember saying "gag me" and "fuckety fuck" and as a life-long Mainer, I say "wicked"
5) He sings that his attitude has been rearranged. What is something you have changed your mind about? this is irrelevant but I changed my mind about which shoes to wear today
6) This week's group, The Association, was founded in Hawaii. Hawaii produces more pineapple than other state in the union. When did you most recently have pineapple? yesterday!  It is my favorite fruit
7) In 1968, when this song was popular, Jacqueline Kennedy married Aristotle Onassis. Think about the last wedding you attended. Were you closer to the bride or to the groom, or were you equally close to both? It was my goddaughter's wedding so I was closer to the bride
8) In 1968, when this song was popular, Laugh In was America's #1 TV show and it made a star of Goldie Hawn. Do you have a favorite Goldie Hawn movie? I love all her movies--The Banger Sisters and Private Benjamin come to mind
9) Random question: Who is the most recent person you made smile, and what did you do? I smiled back

My #5 was not life altering, either. I happen to be on close terms with Crazy Sam and know that, when this question was composed, no serious answers were expected, either.

Your answer to 5 is perfectly fine, and it's probably the sort of answer that should have been given.

Oooo bare footed! I still love the way that grass feels on my bare feet. It sends some sort of electric energy up my spine.
Enjoy the weekend.
