Walk this Way Saturday 9

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.
1) This song is about a young man who takes advantage of his "big chance at a high school dance." Share a memory from your high school years.  I don't have a lot of good memories of high school.  It was an awkward time for me.  I can remember falling on the front steps one morning much to the amusement of all the folks who hung out there.  I went to one dance and never went again.  I did not blossom until I went to college. 

2) Lead singer Steven Tyler is the son of a working mother (mom Susan was a secretary). Did your mother work outside the home?  Not until Junior High.  She was my dad's legal secretary, when he went into business for himself.

3) Onstage, Tyler takes colorful scarves from around his neck and drapes them over the microphone. Do you accessorize your outfits with scarves and belts? Or do you prefer to keep things simple? Simple, I don't accessorize my shorts and sweats......!

4) Tyler confessed to having a massive crush on Jennifer Lopez, his fellow judge on American Idol. Do you think a coworker has ever had a crush on you?  If someone did...I was never aware of it.  

5) Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry says seeing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 inspired him to go into music. How did you end up in your chosen profession?  My best friend from high school, a good memory, recommended me for a job at her bank.  I was in banking ever since.

6) Perry's hobby, breeding horses, is very lucrative. What are your hobbies? I use to do needle work until my hands and eyes stopped me.  I like to refinish furniture and read.  Of course I like to blog and hang out on my computer, much to Mr BC consternation.

7) Aerosmith performed before their biggest-ever TV audience when they played the Super Bowl halftime show in 2001. Are you a football fan? If so, do you prefer college football or the NFL? What teams do you root for? NO! 

 8) Now that we're into summer, the days are longer. When is the last time you watched the sun set? Well, it has been raining here for 2 weeks and we haven't seen the sun for quite a while.  I am looking forward to the end. Moss is growing on my north side.

9) What time did you go to sleep last night? About 10:00 every night, we read for a while and then turn the lights out.  I am up early usually and some times nap during the afternoon.


  1. Oh I'm sorry about the rain. I know you guys are all so ready for summer.
    You redo furniture?!?! How fun! I see refinishing on those home shoes and just live the look of it when they're done.

  2. We feel the same way about high school ... and football ... and, probably, high school football.

  3. I can't believe I didn't put anything internet related as a hobby.

  4. I have been ordered by my physical therapist to nap and rest more. I am finding it quite difficult.

  5. Naps. Shoulda listed naps as my hobby!!! :-)

  6. I would like to forget the whole high school thing myself...

  7. It rains here from April-October at least, if not earlier and later! I try to remember about the hot winters when it's raining for the billionth day in a row...

  8. I like your answer to the football question. Whenever football is mentioned to me my immediate thought is NO!

  9. Send the rain down here, please. We need it!

    I always think of Aerosmith as America's version of the Rolling Stones. I don't know why.

    I don't accessorize, either. I tend to get nervous and start playing with whatever item is around my neck. People point and laugh--it's not pretty.
