Saturday 9: The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia (1972)

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

1) The lyrics tell us about a young man who stopped at a bar named Webb's before heading home. What's the last restaurant or bar you visited? What did you order?
We went to Skipper's Dockside in Key Largo last week, and I had this seafood 'casserole' with scallops and shrimp. It was supposed to come with swordfish, but that's on my no-no list, so I asked for more of the other things and none of that. They complied. It was outstanding!

Oh, and I had some of these Rum Runners, too. ;)
2) In this video, Vicki Lawrence is obviously lip synching. If you had to participate in a competition, would you do better at karaoke or lip synching? And what song would you choose to perform?

I've actually never done karaoke, but it's on my Bucket List. I'm bad at lip syncing, so I would sing. And this song, 4 Non Blondes' "What's Up?" is what I would attempt to perform.
3) Back when this song was popular, so was the Rubik's Cube. Can you solve that 3-D puzzle?
Not without removing stickers or sections of the damn thing.

4) Vicki Lawrence is a hyphenate, meaning she's a comedienne-actress-singer. Using hyphens, describe yourself.
I guess you could say I'm a wife-mom-whirling dervish. Not as exciting as Vicki.

5) Back in the early 1970s, songwriter Bobby Russell first offered this song to Cher, who refused it. Give us the name of a song Cher did record.
 Leaving Sonny Bono out of things, I'm going to go with "If I Could Turn Back Time." Who can forget that outfit?
6) Vicki Lawrence won her first big break playing Carol Burnett's kid sister because of her resemblance to the star. Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity?
I used to get Kristy McNichols a lot, and also Marisa Tomei, and also Molly Ringwald... that's my general look, I guess?

7) She also starred on Mama's Family in the role of matriarch of an argumentative Southern clan. As we head into the holiday season, do your plans involve a lot of family time? 
With this crew, yes, and probably (hopefully) at the beach!

8) After The Carol Burnett Show and Mama's Family, Vicki became a staple on daytime TV. She hosted Win, Lose or Draw and was a contestant on The Match Game and $25,000 Pyramid. Do you watch much daytime TV?

9) Random question provided by a Sat 9er: Bugs/insects. Do you like 'em or fear 'em? Tell us something/anything you know about them.
Like most of my answers, I have to hedge and say: It depends. I'm not afraid of most "bugs," but I have a rule. They are not allowed to touch me without my freaking out, unless they have my express written permission. This, my friends, almost never happens! 
Butterflies, like the poisonous Monarch and its edible Batesian mimic, the Viceroy, are a notable exception. They can land on me anytime.
Thanks for stopping by!
