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!



Stolen from Upstream Life



1. Name 5 people you admire and why
In no particular order ...
* Jane Goodall for her work with chimpanzies
* Dame Daphne Sheldrick, who rescued orphaned elephants
* Greta Thunberg, for her work on climate change
* Malala Yousafzai, the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace prize
* Rachel Maddow, my favorite news person

2. When was the last time you did something adventurous?
I'm not very adventurous.  I guess the last time I did something adventurous was going to Australia by myself.  Pretty scary getting on that plane alone!

3. You felt you got older when _______
The first time I got sick and had to take care of myself...nobody to bring me orange juice, pin a paper bag next to my bed for tissues, get books from the library for me, etc.

4. What one thing that could happen today would make you extremely happy?
The resignation of the president and the cure for COVID-19.

5. An experience you don’t want to go through again.
Burying a child

6. One decision you made that changed your life completely.
To leave the university and get a job.

7. How do you participate in saving the earth?
We recycle, Walt bikes when he could drive

8. A gift you would like to get on your next birthday?
Facetime calls from family, letters from the grandkids

9. Things you miss about your childhood?
My mother's cooking, the fun of living in San Francisco

10. The greatest invention?
The wheel?

11. Your favorite super hero

12. Your views about veganism
I am not big into vegetables, so I could never be a vegan, though I'm not all that fond of meat either.  It all depends on the food.  I have eaten more vegetables, regularly, since Ned moved in here than I have in years.

13. If you could be anything else in the world, what would you be?
An elephant.

14. How did you parents meet?
My aunt was working as an artist on Treasure Island in San Francisco during the World's Fair and met my father there.  She called my mother and told her she had this great guy she should meet.

15. Your morning routine.
Wake up at 3 or 4 a.m., go into family room, get a banana, a bottle of water, and headphones; turn on TV and watch the news for an hour or so.  Back to the couch to sleep another 2 or 3 hours, get up, feed the dog, either make coffee or get coffee, depending on whether Ned has made it or not, watch TV until 9 or 10, come into my office and start working on whatever I am working on that day.



Where I grew up, until age 18.  (the hill is steeper than it looks)
Our bedroom (my sister and I) the windows on the right.
