Walkin' After Midnight 

1) The lyrics tell us Patsy Cline was out walking after midnight. Where were you at midnight last night? I was getting ready for bed--and since it was after midnight, I played Wordle
2) She's sure she hears the night winds whispering to her. Is it windy, breezy, or still outdoors right now? it's raining

3) When she was 13, Patsy came down with a fever and throat infection so severe she ended up in the hospital. She believed the illness changed her vocal chords and enabled her to sing in a lower key. How are you doing this cold and flu season? (knock wood) so far I've managed to stay healthy

4) Patsy is well remembered today not only for her voice but for her generous spirit. Loretta Lynn, Dottie West and Barbara Mandrell all considered Patsy a trusted personal friend and professional mentor. Have you ever been a mentor? yes, several times--with student teachers working with me and with new teachers to the district
5) Patsy had a tough side, too. While traveling by bus and playing one-nighters, she found she and her band sometimes never got paid for their efforts. So she began demanding payment -- in cash -- before they would take the stage. She'd insist, "No dough, no show." Tell us about your tough side. I'm well-known for being frank and upfront with an excellent bs monitor
6) Patsy became the first female country star to headline at a Las Vegas showroom. Who is your favorite country performer? Faith Hill, Wynona, or Trisha Yearwood
7) In 1957, the year this song hit #2 on the charts, embroidered cotton handkerchiefs were a popular present for the ladies on your gift list. Do you own any handkerchiefs? Yes!
8) 1957 was a banner year for Elvis. He released four hit records, two top box-office films, and his TV appearances topped the ratings. 65 years later, he is still recognized the world over by his first name alone. Can you think of another performer for whom one name is all that's required? Cher

9) Random question: What's the most embarrassing story your parents (or siblings) tell about you? I was a sleepwalker and one night my parents were having a party I got out of bed and stepped up on the fireplace ledge and pretended it was a tightrope

Wow, that is some story in #9.

#3 Being around all those children and staying healthy is amazing.
#9 My parents used to have the neighbors over for a party all the time and when I was little I used to sneak in and fall asleep watching them.

I was a sleep walker, too! It scared the crap out of my mom. When we were on vacation at a lake resort, she found me wandering around the parking lot in my pajamas. She was terrified the next night I would turn the other way and head for the water. So she would have preferred *your* story. Yours is cute. (Did you pretend to have a parasol?)

We never had any sleep walkers in the family. I did have a friend in Jr high. She stayed over at my house one time and I woke up in the middle of the night because she was sitting up and punching me repeatedly. She didn't remember at all.

Don't forget your students. You are a mentor to them also. I am glad you are staying healthy! Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

My sister was a sleepwalker too. Did you wake up on your own or did they wake you up? Maybe you watched a circus movie.

I'd have liked to have you for a teacher. Also, my eldest was a sleepwalker when she was quite small. She also had screaming nightmares, poor little kid. Hope those passed you up! Happy Knitting!
