Saturday 9: So Much to Say

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: So Much to Say

Thanks to Kelly for recommending The Dave Matthews Band. (Hear it here.)

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?
It probably the last emotional movie that I watched.

2) Let's lighten it up a little. When was the last time you laughed really hard?
It was when I watched this…

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.
No, I’m up to date with my calls and phone calls. I almost answer emails immediately, phone call might take a little longer.

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.
The last kindness that I received was the same as Dave’s except the flat tire was on my car. I was changing my tire on the side of the road and no one stopped. I had the car jacked up and all the nuts removed but I couldn’t get the tire off the axle. I pulled and pulled and kicked but nothing would loosen up the tire. Finally a car pulled up and a young black man in a hoody and asked if I needed help. He just removed the tire from the axle like it weight a pound. He took out the spare and put in on, put away the flat tire and lowered the car and stored the jack. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

5) Before he hit it big, Dave Matthews was a bartender. What job did you have right before the one you have now?
Hmmm… I’m retired, my last job was a supervisor of an electronic test department.

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?
Yes, tomorrow to New Hampshire

7) Do you suffer from hay fever or allergies?

8) What's in your pocket right now?
Nothing, I have no pockets

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?
Yes, the Blue Lobster. I usually go to dinner there once or twice a month.


  1. The kitten and lizard had me in tears from laughing so hard.

  2. Enjoy New Hampshire - I'm jealous :)
    the kitten/lizard was hysterical LOL
