Saturday 9: Black


Saturday 9: Black (2016)

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

1) This song was chosen because yesterday was Black Friday, the traditional day of sales. Have you begun your Christmas shopping?  I have bought a few things for Josh.

2)  Was there an adult beverage served with your Thanksgiving feast?  no
3) Did any pets enjoy scraps from your Thanksgiving table?  no

4) Are there any Thanksgiving leftovers in your refrigerator right now?  Oh yes

5) Football is a popular Thanksgiving weekend pastime. Will you be watching any games over the next few days? If yes, which team(s) are you rooting for?  I will be watching the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday

6) This week's song is by Dierks Bentley. He wrote it for his wife, Cassidy Black, who appears in the video. They met in eighth grade, dated on and off, and then eloped when they were in their late 20s. Has anyone ever surprised you by going off and suddenly getting married?  Not that I remember.

7) 2016 was a good year for Bentley. This song was one of three hits he had that year, he co-hosted the CMAs and was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year. As 2020 winds to an end, do you feel it's been a successful year?  Not really.  

8) In 2016, David Bowie died. Do you have a favorite Bowie song?  I love lots of David Bowie songs...Space Oddity, Under Pressure, Modern Love, China Girl, Let's Dance.  He was fantastic.

9) Also in 2016, CBS telecast reran How the Grinch Stole Christmas for the 50th time. What's your favorite Dr. Seuss story?  Dr. Seuss is a favorite of mine as a preschool teacher, but I LOVE to read The Lorax.  It is such a great story about taking care of our environment.


  1. I don't think I ever read The Lorax. I might have to check it out. I think our friend Tammy likes the KC Chiefs too.

  2. I always enjoy your answers. No football here, I have to work this afternoon and hubby and son are going over to our nephews for a Thanksgiving get together. smiles

  3. So far, you're our big Bowie fan!

    I love that you viewed Dr. Seuss as an educator. Respect for the environment is an important message to learn young.

  4. It was hard to pick just one of David Bowie's songs he had so many great songs.

  5. I haven't started any Christmas shopping (don't like Black Fridays) and I have plenty of Thanksgiving leftovers in the frig.
    I enjoyed your answers today, we agree on a lot of them.
    Have a good Saturday my friend.

  6. It was tough to choose just one Bowie song and one Seuss story!

  7. I didn't know about The Lorax (or many Seuss stories) because I didn't have little ones and am too old to have read them as a child. I will have to check out Lorax! Fun questions and answers! Have a good weekend, Lori!

  8. I had a professor in college who despised The Lorax. He called it leftist propaganda. I always thought it was just common sense.

  9. I haven't been following football this year...sort of my personal protest of the way so many teams/players/coaches/owners/etc. have been behaving, but I may have to break and watch my Steelers one of these days. Undefeated, baby!! I'm glad someone else doesn't have much shopping done yet, either. I feel like less of a slacker. lol Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Lori!

  10. I'm not a fan of Bowie in general, but you reminded me of China Girl--I always liked that one :)

  11. Space Oddity was my favorite David Bowie, as well. China Doll is one I don’t remember. I’m definitely not a fan, either. Have a great week!
