FIRST: NOTE TO OUR FRIEND PAT IN SACRAMENTO: We
are trying to contact you. No answer to email and phone is a busy signal.
Please contact Char or me if you see this.
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog
authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the
blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and
intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, honor amongst
thieves. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from
and we will fess up to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide
a link to the victim's meme. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we
edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our
players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new
meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Favorite summer flower:
Flavor of ice cream:
Hard to nail down just one, but the one I probably order Butter Pecan more often than
Mode of transportation:
Car. I enjoy the scenery, can listen to music or a book in the car, rest stops en
route, etc.. Of course, driving a long distance can get to ya after awhile.
Going long distances, I prefer an airplane (though I would love to take the train
across the Canadian Rockies)
These days, probably show music is what I listen to when I listen to music (which
Dungeness crab, of course ... or anything I don't have to cook myself. For
dining out, my first choice is usually Chinese or Mexican.
Favorite game to play:
I loved Cousins Days and our marathon games of the card game "65,"
which aren't possible any more, since Kathy is dead, Peach has moved halfway across the
country, and my mother has dementia, so right now my favorite (and only) game is Word with
Earliest childhood summer memory:
Going to Sunnyside Cottages at Boyes Hot Springs. It's where I learned to swim.
I remember that "Mona Lisa" played it seemed all the time at the
swimming pool complex and I ate Neopolitan taffy. I occasionally got to ride horses when I
was older, and on one of those vacations, when I was 7, I got my very first hair
cut, leaving my long curls on the floor of the beauty shop.
Water. Cold water (either from a cooler, or over ice)
Hmmm...maybe peanuts? Usually something salty and crunchy.
Place to read:
In my recliner.
Chris Matthews (I used to like him), Carl Rove & Dick Cheney (never liked them)
How I handle the heat:
Air conditioning, fans, and ice water.
I just came from the post office, where I mail things at least once a week.
They now have a sign asking you about what's in your package, if you need special
services, if you want to buy a mail box, etc. Even though I point to the sign and
say "no - no - no- no" to each of the four columns, they have to ASK me the
questions for each column every. frigging. time. Drives me nuts.
All-time favorite bathing suit:
It has been so long since I wore a bathing suit, I can't even remember what suits I
used to have.
Best Time of Day:
After dinner when I have no guilt about watching TV or working on the computer (which
I do all day anyway, but it's only guilt-less after dinner!) I used to love morning
and I still do, but getting up in the morning signals the dogs that it's time to go
berserk so I'm more likely to lounge about for awhile before letting them know I'm
I'm not a big movie watcher, not because I don't love movies, but because we just
never seem to get to the theater, so I'm not up on current movies, no matter what the
season. But for a movie about summer, In the Good Old Summertime. Summerstock,
or Summertime are favorites.
