The Times of Your Life (1976)

1) This song is all about memories. How far back can you remember? What's your earliest memory?

I remember my grandfather singing a baby song to me when I sat on his lap. He died when I was 2.
The memory is very vivid and I also remember the cuckoo clock above him.
My next memory is when I was 3. At the beach.

2) The first line is "Good morning, yesterday." What do you remember about yesterday morning?

I was very sad because one of my very best friends died. (She was the last of a few.)

3) This song was originally a 60-second jingle, featured in a commercial for Kodak film. Do you ever use film? Or are all your pictures digital?

I would love to use films, but I can't get them developed anymore. So I need to use digital pictures.

4) Who took the most recent photo of you?

Last year a photographer, for my passport. Boy where they ugly.

5) This week's featured artist, Paul Anka, was born in Canada and enjoyed appearing in a made-for-TV Perry Mason movie with fellow Canadian, Raymond Burr. Do you enjoy courtroom dramas?

I used to, but not anymore. The seem to be all the same. And I don't have the time.

6) At 15, Anka won a supermarket contest by collecting the most Campbell soup can wrappers. The prize was a trip to New York. Do you enter contests and sweepstakes? Play the lottery?

Sometimes I enter a contest. But that's it.

7) This year Paul Anka performed throughout Florida (Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Clearwater and Fort Myers). The Sunshine State is a popular vacation destination. Do you have a favorite spot in Florida?

I've never been in Florida.

8) In 1976, the year this song was on the charts, an earthquake hit China. Have you ever experienced an earthquake?

Yes. But it was just a 4.5 one. Everything rumbled, like a truck drove into our back yard and then the shaking began. The pillpots fell from the shelves and things like that.

Later we experienced another earthquake. We sat on the couch and it was like the couch was on the waves of the sea.
The strange thing was that we were that afternoon at the place of the epicenter and I had the strong feeling to get away there as soon as possible. I urged Mister to drive the car fast to another place. The earthquake was hours later and when I heard where the epicenter was.....creepy.

9) Random question: Do you know CPR?

Yes.And used it with success.

Have a great weekend!

  1. So sorry to hear about your friend. And I think it's great that you were able to put your CPR knowledge to good use. Good for you!

  2. Sorry for the the loss of your friend! I am thankful that I have never had to use my knowledge of CPR. Have a great week.

  3. I'b be hard pressed to find someone to develop film here too.

  4. That is so sad about your friend. That takes some time to get over.

  5. I am impressed that you've used CPR. And I am very sorry you lost your friend.

  6. Sorry about your close friend's death.
    And that's very spookie about sensing the imminent earthquake danger.
