Saturday 9

 1) In this song, a tall, handsome man asks Taylor Swift to drive away with him to escape the crowds. Where were you headed when you most recently got behind the wheel? 

I was with my son in law and we were headed to the grocery store. 

2) She sings about memories of a romance that just "follow you around." Is anyone special on your mind this morning? (It doesn't have to be a romantic partner.) 

A good friend whose father in law was in a terrible wreck He is not doing so well

3) The lyrics reference sunset. Now that it gets dark earlier, do you find yourself watching the sun set more often?  

It seems to come to soon before we know it it is dark

4) The video for this song takes place on a movie set. Swift said it was inspired by tales of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton embarking on a love affair while co-starring in Cleopatra. Elizabeth and Richard fell in love in Rome, while this video was filmed outside of Gaborone, Botswana. In your wildest dreams, which of these exotic locales would you rather visit: Rome or Gaborone? 

I have never thought about going to either location. My thoughts are normally in the mountains somewhere

5) In homage to Elizabeth Taylor, Swift went from blonde to brunette for the video. Do you have an appointment with a stylist between now and year end?  

No my hair is long and dark just like I like it

6) Both Taylors (Swift and Elizabeth) often wore the color purple. What color dominates your wardrobe? gray


7) In the video, Taylor Swift's leading man is Scott Eastwood, son of Clint. Though not as famous as his dad, Scott works steadily and has more than 30 TV and movie credits. Can you think of another second-generation performer who followed his or her parent into show business?

not at the moment

8) In 2014, when "Wildest Dreams" topped the charts, Paul McCartney had to reschedule tour dates so he could recover from a bout with the flu. How are you feeling this morning?

9) Random question: How many different zip codes have you lived in throughout your life?  

I have only lived in 3 different areas
