Sizzle Says

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Cheers to all of us thieves!!!

The Sizzle Says Meme

Stolen from: Ms. Sizzle

1. If money were no object, what would you be doing with your life? 
A. I would stop animal cruelty.  It would take an Army of people, and this can't be done cheaply, but it can be done.

2. Money is just that - an object, so why aren’t you doing it? 
A. It will take money, and lots of it.  That's exactly why it hasn't been stopped, because people all over the world want it to be stopped.

3. What’s better: horses or cows? 
A.  I like both animals but they are different.  Horses I love for their beauty, intelligence, grace and personalities.  Cows, for their fun little ways.  Especially,  I like the little cows, or what used to be the little cows.  Have you seen what's happened to them over the last 60 years?

4. What do you think the secret to happiness is? 
A. Having excellent parents from the get go has to be the beginning of happiness.  But people are happy who haven't had that. They've had to build it from scratch, so to speak.

So, it has to be a gift, I suppose, or at least a talent that people can develop, and it seems to me the happiest people are those who can boldly get out of bed each day, determined to be kind, and loving and forgiving, even though their past is always threatening to rise up to bite them, or they have tough challenges from their physical or mental lives to face.   For me, the secret of happiness is forgiving, forgetting, and looking for beauty in life.  Because, Life really is beautiful, if looked at in the right way.

5. When was the last time you had a dream that you either remember well or did not want to awake from? Can you share a bit? 
A. Sure.  It was a long time ago, and all those things you mentioned.  I was walking down a long, curving staircase, running my hand along the the banister, and thinking how beautiful, and big, the house was that we just had bought.  I thought about having all that room for our big family.  I think I know that house. Aha! It  was really Tara!

Ooops! Having never read the book nor seen the film, I'm shocked to learn that Tara never really existed.

6. When you were a little kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? 
A. I knew I wanted to be an painter-artist.  I also wanted to sing for an Opera house.

7. Complete this statement: Love is… 
A. Magical.

8. Can you tell a good story? 
A. I think so.  But only the people hearing it can know for certain.

9. Can you remember your last daydream? What was it about? 
A.  I don't think I day dream.  If it was a daydream, it was about being able to see the girls a lit more times a year.

10. If you were to thank someone today, who would you thank? 
A.  My,my.  Just one?  I'll tell you what, it wouldn't be just one person it would be three or four.  So, with each being as important as the other, I'm not able to answer.

11. If you could be anyone's mojo, whose would you want to be, and why? (For those you do not know what mojo is, it's personal magnetism; charm.) 
A. Mojo is a miss-used word, but here goes.  Someone who could charm the birds out of the trees, is it?  Thinking...... My youngest Sister in Law.  Loving Kind and patient to a fault.  She's amazing.


  1. Unfortunately, there are people who just do not respect life - human or animal- like we do

    1. you are so right. It is something that is fundamental to our continued development as a surviving species but we do not get it. There's no major religion, for instance, that does not teach respect for other earthlings as being fundamental to righteousness in the eyes of a Creator.

  2. I appreciated your answer to the secret of happiness.

    1. Thanks CountryDew. This is all from the heart. Hoped it struck a cord somewhere. .
