Danny's Song

1) In this song, Anne Murray sings that she thinks she's going to have a son. Is anyone in your life expecting a baby? No

2) Back in the 1970s, when this song was popular, parents had to wait until their baby was born to know the gender. Today moms and dads can learn within the first few months whether they're expecting a son or daughter. Do you prefer it this way? Or would you rather not know in advance if you are welcoming a boy or girl into your family? I don't know what I would want
3) Anne is so popular in her native Canada that her face graced commemorative postage stamps. What's the last piece of mail you affixed a stamp to and mailed? it's been at least six months--I mailed motivational postcards to my students

4) She began taking voice lessons at 15. She was so serious about it she took a 50-minute bus ride each way to her classes. What extracurricular activities captured your attention when you were in high school? I was involved with the yearbook and drama club for all four years
5) She studied physical education at the University of New Brunswick and upon graduation taught PE for a year. Did you enjoy gym class? I absolutely abhorred it

6) Every spring and summer, Anne's fans travel to Nova Scotia and The Anne Murray Centre. There they can see exhibits and memorabilia from her long career, including her Grammy Awards and gold records. If we were to display memorabilia reflecting the highlights of your life, what items should we include? I would include the teaching awards and mementos; books, kindles, and nooks; knitting needles and lots of the good yarn
7) In 1972, the year this record was popular, Popeyes opened their first chicken restaurant. Today there are more than 3700 locations in 30 countries. Is chicken on the menu at your house this week? I have not set a menu yet

8) Also in 1972, latch hook rug kits were all the rage. With pre-cut yarn, a latch hook, and a printed pattern, "hookers" could make wall hangings, pillow covers, and throw rugs. Are you into arts and crafts? I am an avid knitter and yarn collector

9) Random question: If you were offered the position of mayor of your town, would you take it? oh, hell no!

So far I haven't read any answers from people who enjoyed gym classes!

I knit occasionally and use yarn in my crafting projects. I am glad you enjoy teaching politics, and I am sure you are good at it.

So far I am amazed at how few people use the post office. I think we mail something at least once a week.

I've enjoyed seeing what everyone would include in their "museum." So neat to see how different we all are even though we have tons of similarities.

Coffee is on and stay safe.

I am very political and I would not want to be mayor
