Young Girl

1) The song is about a girl who is too young for romance. How old were you when your parents allowed you to date? I didn't have any rules about dating

2) Lead singer Gary Puckett mentions the girl's perfume. What scent do you wear most often? I've been wearing Live Joyously by philosophy

3) "Young Girl" reached #2 on the charts and stayed there for three weeks, but it never hit #1. It was stuck behind Otis Redding's "(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay." Are you competitive by nature? Or would you be satisfied doing well, but not being #1? it depends on what we're talking about, but generally I'm good with being good

4) The Union Gap got together in San Diego, California's second most populated city. Have you ever visited California? If yes, where did you go? I visited my sister in the Sacramento region when her husband was stationed there for the Air Force

5) The Union Gap performed at a White House state dinner for special guests Prince Charles and Princess Anne. Some in attendance that night maintain that President Nixon seemed to be playing matchmaker that night between the Prince and his daughter, Tricia. Have you ever tried to fix people up? If yes, did romance result? yes and yes--they are married

6) After six Top 20 hits in three years, the Union Gap disbanded. Today Gary Puckett tours as a solo artist on the "oldies circuit" with Peter Noone of the Herman's Hermits. Without looking it up, can you name any of the Herman's Hermits hits? they're on the tip of my tongue--I know it's a happy song

7) In 1968, when "Young Girl" was a hit, Jacqueline Kennedy married Aristotle Onassis. Think about the last wedding you attended. Were you closer to the bride or groom? I honestly don't remember

8) Also in 1968, the most popular movie in theaters was Funny Girl, starring Barbra Streisand. What's the last movie you watched? I know I've seen something more recent but I don't remember what it was--I do remember Barbie

9) Random question -- Come clean: Right now are there more dishes in your sink or clothes in your hamper? clothes in the hamper

I enjoyed Barbie. My husband did not like it when it finally came to HBO. That surprised me.

I've never been to Sacramento. I wonder what it's like.
