Saturday 9: Stars and Strips Forever

May 27,2017


Saturday 9: Stars and Stripes Forever by The Muppets

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

Memorial Day is the federal holiday designated to honor American service people who died in battle. Though our song choice is humorous, we honor their sacrifice in our hearts.

1) Memorial Day was introduced after the Civil War. War memorials, as well as the graves of veterans, are to be decorated with flags and flowers on this day to show our appreciation. Is there a war memorial in your neighborhood?
I don't think so. I know of a few about 45 minutes away from me

2) Andrew Johnson, our 17th President, was in office the first time Memorial Day (then called Decoration Day) was celebrated. Have you ever met one of our 45 Presidents?

3) According to the AAA, 36 million Americans will hit the road this weekend and drive more than 50 miles. Will you be traveling far from home this weekend?
No, we will be staying home all weekend

4) Memorial Day kicks off the summer season. What's your favorite picnic food?

5) Have you packed away your winter clothes? Or is the weather still so changeable that you still may need something warm?
I packed my winter clothes away, I love this cool weather 60's. I kept my hubby's winter clothes out cause he can't take the cold.

6) As you answer these questions, is there an air conditioner or fan on?
Yup, I got the ceiling fan and a stand up fan on. Though I use fans all year round.

7) This week, we are featuring the Muppets. Jim Henson made the first Muppet out of an old coat, and he used ping pong balls for the eyes. Do you have a talent for do-it-yourself/arts and crafts projects?
Ceramics and Plastic Canvas Needlepointing

8) Random question: Think of the last thing you bought. Did you get a good deal?
I got groceries, There was a few things I got good deals on.

9) Crazy Sam needs your help: What song or a performer would you like to see featured in a Saturday 9 this summer? You'll begin seeing your suggestions as Saturday 9 themes in mid-June. Thanks!
I like Kenny Rogers, Tracy Byrd & "Keepers Of The Stars"
