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!

Taken from Mantelligence



1. What is the craziest, most outrageous thing you want to achieve?
These days, sleeping 6-7 hours at night is about the most outrageous thing I want to achieve...hasn't happened in a very long time.

2. Have your parents influenced what goals you have?
No.   Not at all.  My father wanted me to be a teacher (because "you only work until 3, you get summer off, and the pay is great.").  I don't know that my mother had any goals for me.  Whatever I became was a surprise to them.

3. What is a fashion trend you’re glad went away.
hats and gloves.

4. What word or saying from the past do you think should come back?
Groovy!  I still use it.

5. What do you bring with you everywhere you go?
It's been so long since I went anywhere I forget!  But probably my cell phone.

6. Is there such a thing as a soul?
Yes.  I remember when one of our dogs was put to sleep.  I was holding him when they gave him the shot and I felt his soul leave his body.  He was the only pet that happened with, but it was a definite feeling.

7. Is there life after death?
Yes.  I don't know how to describe it, but there have been enough experiences I have read about and enough experiences I've felt myself that I feel there is something out there after death.

8. Do you think there will ever be a third world war?
How much more can #45 do in a month....?

9. What smell brings back great memories?
Gardenias, and White Shoulders perfume.  My grandparents took me to a funeral when I was 5 (Lord only knows why) and the casket was covered with a blanket of gardenias.  I still get kind of nauseous when I smell gardenias.  White Shoulders was my mother's favorite perfume for years.

10. How would you like to be remembered?
As someone who made a difference in the world....not a big difference, but a difference.

11. What kind of music are you into?
I don't listen to as much music as I used  to.  Right now I'm listening to classical holiday music.  I also like show tunes, Lawsuit music, John Denver, Judy Garland, Steve Schalchlin, Gilbert & Sullivan

12. What is the biggest surprise of your life?
There are lots of surprises in my life, but the biggest surprise this week is learning that the Trump administration had all sorts of information about the kids ripped out of their parents arms at the border and sent across the country to foster homes, including telephone numbers and addresses and never gave them to anybody until this week, so the kids have been without their parents for 2+ years and nobody realized there was a way to find the parents.

13. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Dungeness crab

14. Where is the most awe inspiring place you have been?
Kizhi Island in Russia

and the Pinnacles in Australia

15. Describe your life in six words.
Mom, Wife, Writer, Compassionate, Animal lover



Paul and I had smileys as our joke
