Saturday 9: Two Black Cadillacs


Two Black Cadillacs

Saturday 9: Two Black Cadillacs (2011)

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

1) This week's song is about two women who share a very dark secret. Are you good at keeping secrets?  Yes.

2) Carrie Underwood's favorite author is Stephen King. In fact, she credits King's Christine as an inspiration for this song. Have you read much Stephen King, or seen movies based on his books?  I haven't read any books yet, but I have enjoyed several movies and I love his corgi, Molly!  I follow him on facebook.

3) Carrie first came to America's attention when she won on American Idol. Prior to competing on that show, she'd never been on an airplane. Crazy Sam takes at least one round-trip flight every year and pays using the miles she accumulated from credit card purchases throughout the year. Do you try to earn miles, points, or cash back when you make purchases?  no

4) Black is this week's signature color because November 25 was Black Friday, when retailers historically have slashed their prices and the holiday shopping season begins. Have you begun your gift shopping?  I am excited to say I have done a lot of Christmas shopping this year.  I just need a little something more for my mom.

5) Black Friday began as a local event initiated by store owners in Philadelphia back in the early 1960s. When you think of Philadelphia, what comes to mind?  I have an online friend that lives there, so I think of her, but also The Liberty Bell.

6) Black Friday always comes after Thanksgiving, a day of feasting. What was the best dish at your holiday table this year?  Probably the turkey, but I also love the pie.

7) Thanksgiving is also a big day for watching football. Did you watch any games?  no.  I watched the parade, the dog show and some Hallmark movies.  I also cleaned house and we decorated for Christmas.

8) What are you thankful for this year?  That Josh is working again and has met a lot of friends.  He is going out more.  I am thankful my mom is still with us, she is getting older.  I am thankful Karl and I have good jobs we enjoy and I am thankful for God.

9) Random question: You're in a public restroom and have a choice between paper towels and a hot air hand dryer. Which do you choose?  paper towels.  I am always in a hurry it seems.


  1. It's funny to think of the man who created Cujo the killer dog posting pictures of his corgi.

    Ah, pie! The holidays are a great time for dessert!

  2. I love your new background here, smiles. Wishing you a beautiful day, friend.

  3. I wish I could say that about my Christmas shopping. I have pretty much all of it to do. We missed the parade and the dog show. They're rerunning the parade tonight so maybe I will see at least some of it. I am bummed about the dog show, though. A local girl won the title of national Jr handler. She got a nice scholarship and was maybe to be on tv.

    1. I saw her! She did an excellent job showing her dog! ♥

  4. I finished Christmas shopping for my family today! I was able to get some nice Small Business Saturday gifts.

  5. Yay for you! Shopping almost finished. I enjoyed reading your answers. Have a great weekend,

  6. Paper towels seems the better choice. I am glad for a good update on Josh. Excellent news.

  7. How sweet to have launched a new adult into the world and he's doing well. Congrats to you and your hubby!
    I missed stuffing this year. We did have some yummy homemade cranberry sauce. And did you see the cranberry/rasperry jello salad at Susan's house? Delish! Have a great week, Lori.

  8. Paper towels are safer to use. Seems we all use paper when available. I'm glad Josh has a job and is doing well. Liking our work makes life so much more enjoyable. I enjoyed your post!! Happy weekend!
