Saturday 9: Moon River

Saturday 9: Moon River (1962)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is featured in a Dove candy bar commercial. What's your favorite way to enjoy chocolate (cookie, candy bar, ice cream, hot cocoa, etc.)?

A. I like chocolate any way I can get it. I suppose I prefer a candy bar, though. And no coconut.

2) It was originally written for the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. Where's the best place to eat breakfast in your neighborhood?

A. Cracker Barrel.

3) Were you able to see the moon last night?

A. I don't know. I didn't look.

4) When Andy Williams' show was first telecast in color, viewers commented on how very blue his eyes were. What's the first thing you notice about a person?

A. How they are standing and whether or not they invade personal space. Ominous-looking people scare me.

5) The Andy Williams Show gave the Osmond Brothers their first national exposure. When younger sister Marie joined the act, she made her debut on his show, as well. Let's say you have just been bumped up to first-class for a three hour flight. Which Osmond would you prefer as your seatmate, Donny or Marie?

A. Marie.

6) Even though Andy was a millionaire many times over, he was still careful with money, once saying he would never pay more than $50 for a haircut. This leaves Sam shaking her head, because she spares no expense when it comes to her hair. What's something you splurge on?

A. I used to get a massage every six weeks or so.

7) Andy's Moon River Theater still draws tourists to Branson, MO. Have you ever been to the Ozarks?

A. I think I may have been through there but I am not certain.

8) Andy had a discerning eye for Native American art. His collection of Navajo rugs was sold at auction for nearly $1,000,000. Have you ever bid on an auction?

A. Yes, I have. Many times. I've bought tools, glassware, and books at auctions.

9) Andy told an interviewer that his earliest memory was hiding from a storm in the cellar of his family's Iowa home. What's your earliest memory?

A. I remember running into the house to tell my mother there was something horrible wrapped around the tree in the front yard. I was so scared I couldn't speak, but finally she understood that it was a snake. I had been playing right at it for a long time before I saw it.


  1. I had a massage scheduled for the upcoming Wednesday but had to cancel it due to a stupid meeting at school. She was too booked to reschedule until after Thanksgiving!

  2. I chose Marie as a seat mate, too, and also wondered if anyone ever gets bumped up to first class. Massage sounds lovely.

  3. I'm like the only person to have never eaten at a Cracker Barrel before.

  4. I could use a massage right now. Hot stone or Swedish, I don't care. I'm not picky. :)

  5. 1 - All of the above, no nuts, coconut okay
    2 - Pancake Cafe
    3 - There was a moon last night?
