Touch Me In The Morning

1) In this song, Diana Ross sings that nothing good lasts forever. Do you agree? yes--but that's not necessarily a bad thing

2) She sings about a happy past with her lover, and the strength she'll need to face tomorrow alone. Do you find yourself more often remembering the past or anticipating the future? I'm truly a combination of both

3) In the 1970s, Diana Ross had young daughters. To spend maximum time with her girls, she would sleep all day when they were in school. That way she could have dinner with them, bathe them and put them to bed before going to the studio and recording all night. Have you ever worked the night shift?  no

4) Diana has five children altogether. There's a 16-year age difference between her oldest daughter, Rhonda, and her youngest son, Evan. Studies have shown that when there's a big gap between siblings, parents consider the older kids "built-in babysitters." In your family, were the older kids ever in charge of the younger ones? definitely not

5) She says her favorite sweet treat is Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies. Do you have a favorite cookie? lately it's been Oreo Thins Extra Stuff

6) Around the time she recorded this song, Diana Ross considered making a movie called The Bodyguard. She was to play a singer who received death threats, and Steve McQueen would portray the man hired to protect her. Scheduling conflicts prevented the movie from being made. It wasn't filmed until 1992, and then with different stars. Without looking it up, can you name stars of The Bodyguard? Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston

7) In 1973, when this song was #1, Norman Mailer was atop the best-seller list with his controversial biography of Marilyn Monroe. Do you often read biographies and memoirs? not often

8) Also in 1973, another Motown singer, Stevie Wonder, was injured in an automobile crash and still has a scar on his nose to show for it. Have you ever been in a car accident? nothing serious

9) Random Question: What's the last thing you borrowed or lent?
I borrowed lots of things from my sister while I was in Virginia visiting her

I'm so jealous of your comfortable, casual relationship with your sisters. And, of course, your dad. Would it be presumptuous to ask you to adopt me?

My halfsister was never of the sharing type.

But I shared a lot when I was in England with my father.
We visited the family he stayed with during WW2 and the daughters of one of the girls shared everything with me. It was amazing and so very nice!

Borrowing. It's what sisters do. I had to learn that quickly when I married a man with 5 sisters who counted me as number 6. It was pretty much culture shock to this only child. LOL

#2 If you stop looking ahead you start to wither on the vine.

Most of the bio's that I read are not stars or singers. And it's the best thing to "look ahead". Even if it's just a few hours or days. I am starting to look forward to watching the next episode of something on Fix or Prime. Lol
It works! The present is called the present because it's a gift, yes? Love you! I'm weaving in ends and reading mysteries. All good.
