Battle Hymn of the Republic

Saturday 9: Battle Hymn of the Republic

(From the archives

Memorial Day was introduced to honor the men and women who died while serving the in the United States Armed Forces. We want to make sure that message is not forgotten this weekend.

1) This recording was made live at St. Patrick's Cathedral, during Sen. Robert Kennedy's funeral. (Hear it here.) While both of Bobby's older brothers were decorated war heroes, he served too -- enlisting in the Navy in 1943. Are you a veteran? Are there veterans in your family? (We are grateful and want to hear about it.)
2) Memorial Day also kicks off the summer season. What's your favorite picnic food? 
3) Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life.
4) When was the last time you had your hair cut or trimmed?
5) Crazy Sam runs on Dunkin'. Are you loyal to a particular brand of coffee?
6) If money was no object, what home improvement would you like to make this summer?

7) What was the last thing you bought purely for your own enjoyment?

8) When was the last time you rode a bike?

9) Sam worries that many of her song selections reflect her decidedly Baby Boomer sensibilities. Is there a song or a performer that you'd like to see featured in a Saturday 9 this summer?


Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend.
