Saturday Nine

 Saturday 9: Fool (If You Think It's Over) (1978)

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

1) Do you have any pranks planned for April Fool's Day?

No, I'm not one to do pranks, 
I leave that to my son and Mr D.  
They have pulled some good ones on each other.

2) When Crazy Sam was a little girl, she once pranked her mother by putting bubble wrap under the bath mat so Mom heard a POP when she stepped on it. When you find bubble wrap, can you resist popping it?

I can't resist, I just have to pop it!!!  It's fun!!!

3) This week's song is about a wise man counseling a heartbroken younger person. Chris Rea, who wrote and performs this song, says it was inspired by watching his kid sister endure her first breakup. Were you in love at 17? Do you remember the object of your affections?

I was very much in love at 17, so much so I married the man of my dreams.  We've been together for 62 years and I wouldn't trade one day of those years.

4) She's dressed in black as she mourns the end of her romance. Does your wardrobe include a lot of black?

I have some black, the basic things.  Black slacks, blazer and shoes.  One or two black tops and I have black socks!!

5) He offers to treat her to her first glass of good wine. Do you prefer white or red?

I don't like it and I don't drink it.

6) Chris' own teenage romance was highly successful. He met Joan Lesley while still in school and they have been married since 1968. Whose was the most recent wedding you have attended?

My grandson and two granddaughters.

7) Chris Rea is a passionate race car fan and once worked as a pit mechanic for a Formula One race. Do you watch auto racing?

Nope, but Mr D loves it.

8) In 1978, when this song was popular, Laverne and Shirley was America's #1 TV show. It's still available via cable and streaming today. Are/were you a fan?

I was and I am, they made me laugh.

9) Random question: What are you grateful for this morning?

I'm just so grateful to be here!
