Saturday 9: Come Saturday Morning (1969)

Saturday, March 2, 2019

1) What are your plans for this Saturday morning?
I paid bills and run some errands. 

2) In this song, a man sings of going away for the day with a friend. Where did you go on your last day trip?
We went to the beach with my family. 

3) The lyrics say, "we will remember long after Saturday's gone." What's something you've done recently that you predict you'll remember for a long time to come? 
Reading bedtime stories for my little boy. 

4) This song was the Oscar-nominated theme from the movie The Sterile Cuckoo. What's the first movie song that pops into your head?
Unchained Melody from the movie Ghost. 

5) In the movie, Liza Minnelli played Mary Ann Adams, an eccentric girl everyone called "Pookie." Have you ever been known by a memorable nickname? Who gave it to you?
My cousins call me "Little Miss Piggy".

6) Today's group began their career as The Grads. Recording artist/producer Herb Alpert liked their sound but hated their name. Alpert picked "sandpiper" at random out of the dictionary. Do you still have and use a bound dictionary? Or do you rely on the internet for word searches and spelling?
I rely on google. 

7) The biggest news story of 1969, the year this song was popular, was one of the biggest news stories of all time. On July 20, Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon. Other than the moon landing, what's the most consequential event that you've seen in your lifetime. How do you feel it changed America, and the world?
The murder of John F. Kennedy. It played a great part in the history of America. 

8)1969 was a big year for music festivals, with Atlanta, Toronto and Woodstock all holding famous fests. Have you visited Georgia, Ontario or New York (state)?
In my dreams. 

9) Random question -- According to some plant enthusiasts, house plants do better when they're spoken to. Do you talk to your plants?
Yes. I always do. It's weird but I thing they're smart and listening.

You know, I don't think the nation ever recovered from seeing the President shot like that. I read that it changed the way we grieve, too. That before President Kennedy's funeral, family members weren't expected to be stoic.

I always speak to my plants, too. Not conversations! Just a "hi" or "good morning" as I water them. I agree with you that they can hear.

I was in college when JFK died and remember it so well even after all these years.
