Sunday Stealing or.....

...THOM made me do it! (Yep, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!) Yes, I know Sunday is Mother's Day here. My Mom is at the beach and Hubby's Mom is coming over tomorrow so we can cook for her. DaBoys (chocolate labs Smokey & Bou) have promised not to nag me about feeding them, scratching their bellies, playing ball, letting them out, letting them in or feeding them again between naps as my gift. Oh, and I'm allowed to play on the computer without Bou knocking my hand off the keyboard as he then deftly slides it back so he can put his head in my lap.

Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Bottom line is we get to steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere....but only interesting and intelligent memes. Rules include crediting the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. (I've already alerted Thom). Sometimes the original is edited to make it more relevant to global players, to challenge players, select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive. Today's meme was um...borrowed from a blogger named Nige Lowrey at the blog Nige’s Page a’ Rage. He admits to nicking one of Rol’s memes, but didn't leave a link. So, here we go!

You sure it wasn't the devil that made ya do it LOL. Craig T. Nelson...I had to google him. LOL Was it Monk? He was in plenty of shows. The minute I saw his face I knew of him :) Have you ever been to the Ponderosa up at Lake Tahoe? Fun place to go. And I would so go with you on that Nat Geo place. I think that would be fascinating. Glad you played along. Good answers my friend :) Have a Happy Mother's Day.

Mahalo Thom! LOL Hope I loved your answers.

4...OMG. Had to go get myself a drink after reading that or I would have commented sooner.

18...You have to wonder about someone named Wyoming or New Hampshire, wouldn't you? LOL

21...If you mean the Baobab trees, Madagascar? I've never been to Africa at all -- yet!

I hope you're having a good weekend, and your mother knows what she's doing, spending it on the beach! Good luck with dinner and I hope the boys behave.

I love your answers, from Barry to sweet and sour chicken. You're a natural at this.
You drive 50 miles to work, holy god!
I have an idea, let's all visit your mom at the beach.
I'll bring the beverage!
Happy sunday my wise friend!

Thom, I had to go look the Craig T. thing up; it was called "Chicago Story". It was a rotating type of thing, with a couple of lawyers, doctors and cops: how they interacted. Didn't know Lake Tahoe had a Ponderosa. And I admit, I love Nat Geo from the comfort of my couch.

Susan: #4 I picked that Barry song against my will; not a big Barry fan but that catchy beginning...
#18: I've had kids in the afternoon named Paris, London and India. Sigh. #21..I think you're right. Hey, isn't that what every Mom wants to hear? YOU ARE RIGHT! Now have yourself a peaceful Mother's Day as well!

You look BEAUTIFUL, then and NOW!
You are such a wonderful friend and MOTHER!
May this Mother's Day be one of the best with more to come in years!

Happy Mother's Day too!
I like these - you always find really good ones!
Dancing Bear? Captain Kangeroo? I'm getting worried, or it could be a culture thing.
