Something to Think About

"I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love."

Saturday 9: So Much To Say

These are the Saturday 9 from this site.

1) The lyrics refer to a baby's "one year of crying." When was the last time you cried ... felt weepy ... or at least teared up? Just the other day when I thought of a friend who died.

2) Let's lighten it up a little. When was the last time you laughed really hard? Today!!

3) Do you have "so much to say" that hasn't been said yet? Tell us if you owe someone a phone call, note, email or text.  I missed a whole lot of posts this week on my blog - as I was on vacation. Does that count?

4) Earlier this summer, Dave took a bike ride before a show and his tire blew out. He didn't have a cell phone with him and was afraid of missing that night's performance. Fortunately two fans -- driving to see Dave Matthews Band in concert -- recognized him by the side of the road and gave him a ride to the show. Share a recent act of kindness you either did, or received.  I donated to a non-profit organization earlier today.

5) Before he hit it big, Dave Matthews was a bartender. What job did you have right before the one you have now? I worked as a telemarketer. (I hated it but it paid the bills until I found something better)

6) The Dave Matthews Band recorded an album live at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, in the mountains near Denver. Is there a trip to the mountains in your future? Probably.  I love the mountains.

7) Do you suffer from hay fever or allergies? Nope!

8) What's in your pocket right now? A five dollar bill and my fitbit.

9) American Express promotes "Small Business Saturday," and encourages us to shop at local, independent retailers. Is there a shop, boutique or restaurant in your town that you're particularly fond of? Not anymore.  The coffee shop closed down at the end of March.  I guess my next choice would be the bar/restaurant down the street so I imagine that would count.  We don't have a lot of businesses in our small village.


  1. Nothing wrong with taking a job to pay the bills. I think we've all found ourselves in that position.

    1. Yep! You do what you have to do sometimes!
