QUESTIONS

When I think of France, I think of ~ Paris.

What is your favorite book, song, movie, TV show about (or that takes place in) the American South? They can be from any genre.

Book: To Kill A Mockingbird
Movie: Mississippi Burning
TV Show: Andy Griffith Show (when I was a child)
Song: Strange Fruit

If I could see any place or any touristy thing in Canada, I’d like to see: Montreal.

A dead or alive actor that is from a country that is not my own and that I like is ~ Anthony Hopkins.

If money was no object, the car that is made in a country that is not my own and that I wouldn’t mind having is a ~ Jaguar. I had an '89 XJ6 I sold and I regret it!

While I may not know what the words mean, a song I can sing in a language that is not my own is ~ Der Hass (it means [The] Hate in German).

If I go to a non-fast food Mexican restaurant, I’m likely to order: Chicken enchiladas or beef tamales.

A country that is not my own but whose flag I would easily recognize is: Japan.

What state or country that is not your own do you live closest to? ~ Virginia.

JUST CURIOUS

When you pull up to an ATM machine on the outside of some building wall to do your business, can you reach it without either unbuckling your seat belt or opening your car door a little? ~ Usually. My last car's front windows wouldn't go down, so I always had to get out to use the ATM.

PHOTO

This photo was taken by me on this date 11 years ago. It is the Rice Grist Mill at Norris Dam State Park in Norris, Tennessee. ~ Lovely!

Question: Right now, how do the color and amount of leaves still on the trees where you live compare to this? Do you have more or less at this particular time of the year? ~ They are not as colorful but about the same amount is there. My late neighbors tree is nearly bare.

When I think of France, I think of
La Marseillaise (best national anthem ever). Remember this scene from Casablanca (they were in Morocco when they sang it)

What is your favorite book, song, movie, TV show about (or that takes place in) the American South? They can be from any genre.

Book: Deliverance - James Dickey (takes place in Georgia)
Movie: Sweet Home Alabama
TV Show: Justified (Kentucky)
Song: Boondocks - Little Big Town


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Empq3ZkTm8E


If I could see any place or any touristy thing in Canada, I’d like to see: The Calgary Stampede.


A dead or alive actor that is from a country that is not my own and that I like is Patrick McGoohan (dead - England) and Russell Crowe (alive - Australia).


If money was no object, the car that is made in a country that is not my own and that I wouldn’t mind having is a I have no idea. I need a car that is easy to get in and out of these days.


While I may not know what the words mean, a song I can sing in a language that is not my own is Dimelo by Marc Anthony which is the Spanish version of his hit record I Need To Know. On his album from back then, he put both versions on it... and he enunciates really well.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iP6pn_IQjhs

Haven't looked at everyone's answers yet. Curious to see if anyone put O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree). Knew it when I was a kid in grade school but not now. Nat King Cole had a record of it in German as well as some others.

A country that is not my own but whose flag I would easily recognize is: Canada, Japan, UK, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Australia.

JUST CURIOUS

When you pull up to an ATM machine on the outside of some building wall to do your business, can you reach it without either unbuckling your seat belt or opening your car door a little?
If someone holds my feet and dangles me out of the driver's side window, I might be able to reach it without opening the car door.

Edit: I really appreciate it when people post YouTube music or pictures. Gives me ideas. I am now going to see if I can buy that version of Shenandoah.

If I could see any place or any touristy thing in Canada, I’d like to see: Just about any place about which Gordon Lightfoot sings, but the islands in Lake Huron featured in Seven Islands Suite takes the cake.

While I may not know what the words mean, a song I can sing in a language that is not my own is Yerushalaim Shel Zachar, or Jerusalem of Gold. Or do songs sung in Canadian count?

A country that is not my own but whose flag I would easily recognize is:Israel.

What state or country that is not your own do you live closest to? Connecticut, about 500 yards.

Question: Right now, how do the color and amount of leaves still on the trees where you live compare to this? Do you have more or less at this particular time of the year? Would be very similar except for a few fierce windstorms that stripped them soon after they turned.

We have had a lovely fall with beautiful foliage colors. But now the color show is about over. There are a few trees with leaves turned amber or red, but most of them have fallen by now.
