Saturday 9- I Forgot to Remember to Forget

Saturday 9: I Forgot to Remember to Forget (1955)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
In honor of Elvis' birthday (January 8.)

1) Elvis sings that he thinks about this girl all the time. What person or topic is on your mind this Saturday?  The weather.  It is raining out with possible sleet/snow/ice in the forecast.

2) He wants to forget the day he met his girl, but simply can't. Think about someone very important in your life. Did you know right away that they were going to be influential?  My co-worker made a huge first impression on me.  She really tries to be a good friend to everyone and never has a bad thing to say about anyone.  I did not realize it right away, but it was kind of soon...within the first month or so that she would be influential.  She is great.

Since this week's song is about memories, let's check on how well you recall events in your own life.

3) What was the first concert you ever attended?  Tammy Wynette.  My parents took me along with them when I was a kid.  I remember it so well because she sang Stand By Your Man standing next to my dad.

4) Where did you get your first piercing? (Not only where on your body, but who did the deed and where did they do it?)  I got my ears pierced and it was at as hair salon, but I have no idea who it was that did it or even where it was.  My mom took me.  It was not our normal salon.

5) What's the name of the bank where you had your first checking account?  It has changed now, I do not remember what it was called then.

6) Tell us about your first bicycle.  It was this weird little yellow bike.  It was small, but I learned to ride on it and then got a bigger one.

7) Who received the first text you ever sent?  I am not sure, but I bet it was my friend Natalie and probably to tell her I could text now.  She was always trying to text me and I did not have a phone that texted.

8) What had you been drinking when you suffered your first hangover?  Fuzzy Navels....I loved them so much I drank a lot of them and of course got really sick.  I cannot even smell them now.  This was probably 25 years ago.

9) Whose was the first wedding you ever attended?  I will say Max and Carolyn.  I was their flower girl and I was about 6 years old.


  1. That's great that you have such an awesome coworker and friend. Having someone like that to work with can make a huge difference! What a nice memory to have of the concert with your parents. I didn't think of shows like that or I guess I'd have had to say my first concerts were either the Hee Haw cast or the Lawrence Welk cast my grandmother took me to see at the fair. Enjoy your Saturday, I hope the weather is kind to you!

  2. That's such a sweet memory about you and your dad at the concert.

    Fuzzy Navels! I haven't ordered one of those in forever! And I do enjoy vodka drinks, so thanks for the reminder.

  3. Im sorry about the Fuzzy navels.. I truly am not a drinker, except for a bit of wine,, of course onece you read my answer to that one I sound awful... but anyway I love fuzzy navel or two over the holidays.. just a little bit will do me though!!

  4. Fuzzy Navels oh that brings back memories, my cousin mixed Fuzzy Navels for my aunt and she got looped.

  5. I was an adult when I had my ears a hair salon too!!

  6. Having a great coworker makes going to work a lot easier! I don't think I've ever had a Fuzzy Navel. I've heard of them but never ordered one. Fun answers!

  7. I don't think I ever had a fuzzy navel though I had friends that drank them. I quit drinking when I was 19 so my drinking days were early and over and done quickly.

  8. Hi Lori, Thanks for tagging me. So we were both flower girls! I love the snowflake back ground and your tag too. Is that one from Judy? Have a great weekend!

  9. Hi Lori. Such sweet memories you have. Fuzzy navels are very good. I cannot remember what I drank that gave me my first hangover, but I know that I was sick for three days afterward. I am sure I chose to forget at the time. Have a nice weekend!

  10. So awesome that you have a great coworker. Makes work so much more enjoyable. Happy weekend!

  11. Fuzzy navels, they were all the rage when I was younger, seems like everyone was drinking them...

  12. That storm certainly created havoc around here. I will say that the snow was pretty to look at especially since I did not have to go anywhere.
