saturday 9

P.S. I Love You

1) In this song, a man fills his lover in on what's going on in his daily life, including that he was in bed by 9:00 PM. Do you have a regular bedtime? I try to be in bed before 9 on school nights.  I get up at 5 am

2) He reports that yesterday it rained, but all in all, he can't complain. Do you often find yourself discussing/complaining about the weather? oh, hell yes!

3) This song was recorded many times, by artists as diverse as Rudy Vallee (1934) and Bob Dylan (2017). It's endured because the theme -- reaching out and staying in touch across the miles -- is universal. Is there anyone in your life with whom you regularly correspond? If yes, do you prefer cards/letters, emails or texts? Of course, I love getting actual mail but I love emails and texts

4) This 1953 version was a hit for The Hilltoppers. The band members met at Western Kentucky University and took their name from the nickname of their school's athletic teams. What was the name of your school's team? the Shipmates

5) The Hilltoppers always performed in W sweaters, for Western Kentucky. Do you own any sweaters, caps or jackets that celebrate your alma mater? no

6) By 1960, The Hilltoppers' records weren't selling anymore. But they continued to perform and in 1970 they became the house band at The Holiday Inn in Fort Walton Beach, FL. They were so popular with tourists that they played at that Holiday Inn for years. When did you last stay in a hotel, motel or airbnb? end of July

7) In 1953, the year this recording was popular, the Eisenhowers moved into The White House. First Lady Mamie Eisenhower was known for her down-to-earth style. For example, she often shared her recipe for Million Dollar Fudge, saying that since it's easy to make and foolproof, she recommended her fudge as the perfect hostess gift. When you're invited to someone's home, do you bring a hostess gift?  generally, I don't like showing up empty-handed
8) Also in 1953, radio personality Arthur Godfrey made news for having one of the nation's very first hip replacements. Have you/would you ever be part of a clinical trial, either for a new drug or medical procedure? yes
 9) Random question -- Do you fold your socks or roll them?  fold

I like the name "Shipmates."

That is so cool that you participated in a trial.

#1! My same routine. I am going to start teaching Beebots (kind of like robotics) for littles..on Tuesday (from 7:00AM-7:30AM). I am exicted. I taught them in my class this week and the kids loved it. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend. ♥

#2 My father was a high school principal and at 5 am he would be calling the other principals in town to see if school would be called off. My brother and me would be listening and when he called the radio station we would run beck to bed until my father wanted us to shovel the driveway.
#9 Gee everyone is so neat. I just throw them into the drawer.

The Shipmates? That's an interesting choice. What is the mascot?

Even when I worked and got up at 5, I still went to bed early. I am a night owl and have been since I was a kid. I would consider a trial, but I have Kaiser insurance and I don't think I could do a trial.

I like the Shipmates. Very original! My husband gets up a 5 a.m. a lot, even if he doesn't have to anymore. We figured out a long time ago that I do not do well at that hour of the day, so he makes his own breakfast.

I get up at 5:00, too...sometimes I wake up earlier...but my sleep isn't as good as yours. I'm often up until 11:00 or later.
