Don't Sleep in the Subway


Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Don't Sleep in the Subway (1967)
 
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Subways can be bright and noisy. Do you need it dark and quiet before you can fall asleep? 
No, I need to fall asleep with the TV on

2) In this song, Petula encourages her lover to talk it out instead of walking out. Do you usually remain reasonable during a disagreement?
Yes

3) Petula was a child star in England during WWII. Her BBC broadcasts were very popular with the British troops, who nicknamed her The Singing Sweetheart. Soldiers pasted her photo onto their tanks for luck as they went into battle. Do you have any little rituals or good luck charms that calm/comfort you when you're afraid?
No

4) Now 84, she recently told London's Daily Mail that she's surprised and thrilled to have found love again with a new man. Do you believe you'll ever be too old for romance?
Nope
 
5) Her family is far flung. She lives in London, her middle daughter is in Paris, her son is in Los Angeles and her oldest daughter lives in New York with Petula's two grandchildren. Who is your nearest friend or relative? Which one is farthest away?
My nearest friend is 5 trailers up from me ~ Nearest relative is an hour away
My farthest friend is 3 hours away in Ohio ~ Farthest relative is in Arizona

6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone published its first issue. John Lennon was on the cover. Publisher Jann Wenner reports that, either individually or as a group, the members of The Beatles have appeared on the most Rolling Stone covers. What's the first Beatle song that comes to mind?
All My Loving

7) In 1967, Star Trek was in its second season on NBC. Who is your favorite Star Trek character?
Never watched Star Trek, Never could get into it
  
8) RANDOM QUESTION: When you slip into jeans or slacks, which foot do you put in first?
Left

9) As you considered #8, did you mime pulling on your pants?
No, I know cause with my knee hurting as bad as it does it's easier for me to put my left in first

Saturday 9: This Is the Way the Bunny Hops
 
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.


1) Why do you suppose there are so many songs about Santa Claus, yet very few about the Easter Bunny?
No Clue

Mr. Washington ~ He had me as a student teacher to help him and helped me a little to break out of my shyness getting up in front of people.

Last Saturday April 8 when my Great niece came to visit.  Will be coloring eggs this evening when my grandchildren comes
