Saturday 9

I forgot to post yesterday!!!!

Saturday 9: Every Time You Go Away (1985)

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

1) This song is about separation. Who is the last person you said goodbye (or maybe just "so long") to?

My grandson and daughter...just goodbye because will see them Sunday in church.

2) This week's featured artist, Paul Young, was a gifted athlete during his school days and briefly played professional football (aka soccer). Sam enjoys playing tennis, though her serve doesn't give Serena Williams anything to worry about. What's something you enjoy doing, even if you don't excel?

I enjoy going to my Zumba class.
3) Mr. Young and his wife Stacy were married for 31 years, until her death in 2018. What do you think is the key to a happy marriage?

My late hub passed away this past November.  We were married 37 years.  I think the key to a happy marriage is not necessary 50/50.  There were many days I needed more than 50 and hub was there for me and vice versa.  You will have disagreements in a marriage but if you truly love someone you will stick it out and not throw in the towel like so many couples do today.
4) Paul Young's performance of this hit song was one of the highlights of the July 1985 Live Aid Concert. This international benefit raised more than $100 million to alleviate hunger in Ethiopia. Tell us about a charity you support.

Relay for Life...I have been supporting this charity since 2010.  Hub was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2010....became involved in Relay for Life then.  It took seven years for the ugly cancer to return.
5) This song was written by Daryl Hall, of Hall and Oates. What's your favorite Hall and Oates song?

"You've Lost that Loving Feeling"

6) In 1985, when this song was popular, the New Coke was unsuccessfully introduced. What's the last beverage you drank?

Sweet Tea
7) In 1985, the New York Stock Exchange had to close because of Hurricane Gloria. Has a hurricane shared your name? (Find a list of recent/upcoming storm names here.)

2017 Tropical Storm...Tammy  even though my legal name is Tamara, I go by Tammy.

8) 1985 was the year that the Titanic wreckage was discovered. There have been at least 11 movies and TV shows about the fatal voyage. Have you seen any of them?

Yes, I love anything about the Titanic.

9) Random question: Would you rather own and run a coffee shop or a shoe store? Why?

Hub use to own a coffee shop before he passed away...I was a retired school teacher.  
I still go to the coffee shop and make coffee but it isn't like it use to be.
