Saturday 9

1. Have you ever felt that you needed to just forget an ex-lover?
No, but that is because I don't dwell on the past and there weren't a lot of boyfriends. 

2. Spring picnics and cookouts are here! What would you want to have on your plate as you head back to the table?
BBQ ribs, ummm.....but then I would also need a helping of dental floss.

3. It's St. Patrick's Day, March 17th! Do you celebrate? Drink Green Beer? Go out?
When I worked, I use to try to remember the shamrock earrings my mom brought me back from Ireland.

4. Did you remember to wear green today?
I need to find those earrings. I am sure I packed them.  I'm wearing an Orange night gown, doe that count?

5. What phrase or saying do you over use?
Okey Dokie! My grandsons giggle when I say it. Mr Bankerchick takes it, that it is time to hang up the phone.  I didn't know it was telegraphing that, so we laugh when I say it.

6. If you could (or could have) change(d) something about your relationship with your parents, what would it be?
I would have asked more questions about them and listened to the stories more closely when they would reveal something about themselves.

7. If the NCAA Men's or Women's Final Four basketball tournament was played in your hometown arena or within easy driving distance from where you live, would you try to attend one of the games?
Basketball is one sport that I can stand, as it goes fast. However, unless someone gave me tickets, I would probably not go in person. During the LA Oympics we got some tickets to watch the USSR, play some other country, they did not win.

8. No matter what's going on in your life, what always makes you smile? My grandsons Лука and Caшa. They can always make me smile, next would be my pups doing something funny.

9. We've asked this before: What else is on your mind? Go ahead and rant.
I am so tired of the incivility of today's politics and pundits. I just don't listen, I pass up blogs, news stories, tv, anything that is presidential.  The office itself is a balance on other powers, so a president can't do ALL of the things they are accused of or have promised. The ability to compromise is how things get done. And don't get me started on religion!


  1. How cool is it that you've been to the Olympics! Maybe one of these days I'll be able to attend them.

  2. Oh, good rant this morning! I like that your grandbabies make your smile. Happy St. Patrick's Day BC!

  3. 1. No
    2. A nice piece of pork loin
    3. No celebration. Went out because it was a normal Saturday.
    4. No. I'm dressed in rose pink!
    5. Can't think of one!
    6. Maybe I'd stop Mom from belting me so often.
    7. No.
    8. I used to smile at my dogs but they've gone now!
    9. I'm a bit like you regarding politics. Mostly my mind is taken up with my writing.

    I debated about posting this negative response to your 9 questions ... then I thought why not!

  4. I agree completely about negative politics! My knee-jerk reaction is to automatically vote for the other guy!

  5. Current politics is definitely the root of a lot of frustrations.

    Have a great day!

  6. If only the candidates would follow your lead and keep quiet about their religious views, I know I'd be happier! Thanks for stopping by my Sat. 9.

  7. Number 5 is funny! When I call my husband and he's busy, he always says, "What's up?" instead of "Hi."

    I know I say certain things a lot. I just can't remember what they are!

  8. I'm not a big fan of St. Patrick's Day, it seems like it has become another excuse to drink.

  9. I like it when you do these memes - it means I get to know more about you. :)
