I encourage you to visit other participants in Sunday Stealing posts and leave a comment. Cheers to all us thieves who love memes, however we come by them.


  1. Love your sense of humor! (#15) I think my best find actually found me.

  2. #12 -- Really? You don't want a fireplace? I think I do want one. Or maybe fireplaces are like boats, in that it's better to have a friend who has one than to have one yourself.

  3. I'm with you on places to not visit. I couldn't think of any entire state or country I'd rule out. Everywhere has something I'd like to see again.

  4. I love your answers, especially #16--yes!

  5. Best answer to #21! Always practical.

  6. Please do finish your PhD and save the world. I’m so tired of it!


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
