Hi! 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 Friday 5




1) What one event from your lifetime would you change if you could, and why?
I would change our son David's death.  I suspect if David hadn't died, our son Paul would not have died 3 years later.  Of course, if Paul had not died, I probably would never have met Steve Schalchlin, who changed my life for many years.

2) If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be and how old would your younger self be when they got it? Do you think your younger self would listen?
Floss and exercise.  A good piece of advice that I probably GOT when I was young and never followed.

3) If you could have a conversation with the historical figure of your choosing, whom would you pick and why? What would you talk about?
I hate these "pick a person and what would you talk about" questions because I'm so shy that no matter whom I pick, I would be tongue tied.  But it would be fun to have lunch with Jane Goodall and listen to her thoughts about animals.  I might even be able to contribute to the conversation.  Or the late Daphne Sheldrick, who founded the Sheldrick WildlifeTrust and talk with her about her work with elephants.

4) What's a safety rule that's very important to you?
These days, wearing a mask and being careful of social distancing.

5) What would you like to say to people in the future?
I wasn't involved!!!! and "I didn't vote for him!"

6) What's your favorite dish to bring to a summer cookout?
stuffed eggs and/or chips and clam dip.

7) How much time have you spent outdoors this week?
I don't know...maybe 30 minutes?  That's probably generous.  Only the time it takes to get something outside or to go somewhere.

8) Where do you set your thermostat?
70 in the winter, 80 in the summer

9) How did you learn to swim?
My father taught me.

10) How do you avoid overheating?
I have fans in several places in the house.  I also have a hand held fan if necessary.

11). What are you going to do this weekend?
Same thing I did this week...work at my computer, watch TV, eat and sleep.  But I suspect a lot of time will be spent this weekend looking for squirrels and seeing if they go into the house Ned built.

12) What’s your favorite way to spend time?
Watching TV

13) What’s the most useless thing you own that you would never get rid of?
Delicate Pooh


14) Have you started planning your next vacation?
Other than our annual trip to Santa Barbara in July, we have no plans for any upcoming vacations.

15) Are you very active, or do you prefer to just relax in your free time or is it one and the same to you?
I am definitely of the relaxing frame of mind.
