14 October 2018

Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves.

This week's questions come compliments of Kwizgiver.  Thanks!

1. Your phone rings. Who is the most likely caller?
Someone who wants to sell me something.  If it's a personal call, it's usually Ned or Jeri.

2. How long do you chat on the phone each day?
I can go days...even a week or more...without chatting on the phone.

3. Who do you speak to the most?
The person to whom I speak the longest is Jeri.  Next up would be Tom, who calls once a week to make sure we are alive and to report on the girls' activities.  Ned's calls are generally very short because he's here so often and we don't need to talk on the phone.

4. Do you often not answer if a certain person comes up on your caller id?
Most of my callers are people I don't know, robo calls, or salesmen.  I rarely answer the phone....especially now that it takes 5 rings for me to get out of my recliner and walk to the phone! (the recliner is wonderful, but its mechanism is very slow!)

5. Do you phone friends at work?
No.  (Honestly don't know anybody who works any more!)

6. Do you make personal calls at work?
I did when I worked in an office, since I was generally the only employee.  Now that I'm retired, no.

7. Who do you always say “I love you” at the end of the call?
The kids.

8. Do you use a landline or cell more often?
Probably cell.  We have a landline, but it gets most use for unwanted incoming calls.  Our modem is attached to it too.

9. Who in the blogosphere that you haven’t chatted with but would like to?
I'm kind of shy about talking to people I don't know, but I think it would be fun to talk with either Country Dew or Kwizgiver, after the initial awkwardness.

1. Scratch or mix? Buttermilk or plain?
Scratch is my favorite, but I'm lazy and usually use a mix.  Buttermilk is best.

2. Pure and simple, or with additions cooked in?
I like pancakes all ways, but mostly I like pure and simple with lots of butter and maple syrup. There was a time when we went camping where we picked huckleberries and then had sourdough huckleberry pancakes.  Those were the best.

3. For breakfast or for dinner?
Never for dinner if Walt is home, but if I'm alone, I have been known to make pancakes for dinner.

4. Preferred syrup or other topping? How about the best side dish?
There was a time when I loved the fruit syrups, but now I'm pretty plain vanilla...just maple syrup and lots of butter.  Best side dish is sausage.

5. Favorite pancake restaurant?
I don't know a lot of pancake restaurants, but I do enjoy IHOP when I take my mother there for lunch.  Sambo's in Santa Barbara (this is the original and kept the name when they dropped it at all the other outlets) also has good pancakes.

Bonus: Any tasty recipes out there, for pancakes or other special breakfast dishes? Bring 'em on!
I love breakfast recipes, but with only two of us at home and Walt married to cereal with flax seed and cinnamon, and knowing I should not eat the fancy stuff, I rarely try them unless we have overnight guests.  I do love cinnamon rolls, though and occasionally indulge.  I like making the yeast kind -- and don't usually use glaze.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!

Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear -- it wasn't me! --
so if you don't see your comment, it's because it's awaiting approval.  Sorry 'bout that!
