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 Facebook



The best story your parents or grandparents tell about the good ole days.
My mother had a lot of stories about growing up on a farm in California.  Her father had a big pile of cans in one corner of a corral and when they wanted to do something he'd say they couldn't do it until they moved the cans to the other corner.  so they spent a long time moving the cans.  Later she said when she asked him about it he said it was just to give them something to do not to bother him.  She also remembered her little brother who would stand on the porch of their house and try to pee all the way over to the house across the street.

The best things in life are...
Things that involve family time together.

Things that drive me batty
Republican congressional refusal to do anything to strengthen gun control laws, despite thousands of people being killed.  Or even allow the issues to come to the floor to be discussed.

A place I'd like to live and why
There was a time when I wanted to live in Santa Barbara to be with my grandkids as they grew up, but they have gotten old enough that they wouldn't want to have grandma around, so I'm perfectly fine living where we live.  If we had to move somewhere, it would be fun to live in Ireland.

The best thing I've ever found
Well, I'm not sure it's the best thing but this is my favorite recent acquisition

I am too fat to put socks on easily and this helps me put them on effortlessly.

The best thing that happened recently is...
Jeri flying out from Boston to surprise me on Mothers Day

I admire people who...
Take care of needy people or animals.  I especially admire the people who rescue orphan elephants at the Sheldrick Foundation in Kenya.

What makes me special
I put together the questions for Sunday Stealing

I am looking forward to...
The Paul Picnic, an annual Picnic in memory of our son Paul, who died in 1999.  Many of his friends and their families come.  We've been having this picnic for some 20 years.  it was started by Paul's best friend.  I am answering these questions on Friday and the picnic will be on Saturday at a farm here in Davis.  Ned has been working on getting things ready for days.

Things that scare me
Mass executions, freeways in general, but especially with big trucks, fear of developing Alzheimers, like my mother

Complaints I have
Republicans who refuse to admit that gun control laws need to be passed.  Especially people like Mitt Romney and Susan Collins, who seem to me to be the sort of people who would understand the need to control gun sales of the AR-15, which is used in every mass execution.

I could never live without...
Water.  I'd say my computer, phone and TV, but really if necessary I could live without them, but definitely could not live without water.

Things that make me laugh
The antics of the squirrels in our back yard.
