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!


From Facebook



1. The best story your parents or grandparents tell about the good ole days.
My mother is the only one who talks about the good ole days, but her stories of life on a ranch during the depression are great -- her sister (one of the first women to get a pilot's license in California) flying over and tossing out the newspaper because there was nowhere to land, her mother trying to learn (unsuccessfully) to drive a car, my mother cutting out figures from a catalog to use as paper dolls, etc.  Lots of fun stories.

2. The best things in life are...
I'm trying to think of something more clever than "free" but "free" seems to be it. The best thing in my life is family.

3, Things that drive me batty
All those ads that run on the bottom of TV shows and cover up important things in the show you are watching.
* robo calls
* Republican politicians

4. A place I'd like to live and why
I wouldn't mind living in London.  I've been there often enough to feel at home there.  I'd also love trying to live in Ireland.  It felt like "home" the first time we visited.

5. The best thing I've ever found
Well, this month it's definitely this:

6. The best thing that happened recently is
Biden was elected president.

7. I admire people who...
Go out of their way to help others, whether humans or animal. 

8. What makes me special
I am spectacularly ordinary.

9. I am looking forward to...
*The return of live theater.
* The release of Diana Gabaldon's new book, in November
* My mother's 102nd birthday

10. Things that scare me
Big trucks on the freeway
* coronavirus
* being unable to care for myself
* public speaking
* the death of another child

11. Complaints I have
* Intelligent people who believe the coronavirus is a hoax
* You can't buy roses in a florist shop that smell like roses
* How the internet has changed.  You used to be able to find someone's phone number by typing in their name.  Now you have to pay for a service to give you all their information, including their police reports. 
* The New York Times, The New Yorker and the Boston Globe send me intriguing headlines every day, but you can only read the articles if you subscribe.
* So many TV programs are now on "plus" stations
* Commercials for all those "plus" stations

12. I could never live without...

13. Things that make me laugh
The squirrels!  Now that we have 3 of them on the patio, it's such fun to watch them.

14. What is a new skill that you would like to learn?
I would like to be fluent in another language, French, Portuguese or Spanish.

15. What brightened your day today?
Ned put out a new squash today and it brought all 3 of the babies AND their mother to the patio.

And by the way, today is the 115th anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.  THAT would have been a great story to hear from my grandparents, who both lived through it, but neither of them ever mentioned it.
