Sunday Stealing: The Year End, 2015 Meme!

December 26, 2015
The 2015 Year End Meme

I like the Thieves Credo so here it is in full...  Cheers to the Thieves!  On to 2016!

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 of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme.

Let's go!!!

1. What did you do in 2015 that you’d never done before? 
Said goodbye to an organ.  Lolz!

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Absolutely.  I learned to Breathe properly.  

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
No, but a sweet friend's daughter is going to have a little baby soon!

4. Tell us a valuable lesson you learned in 2015?
I learned that there is a connection, through an Eastern Orthodox mystic, to the sayings of Christ regarding many, many things.

5. What was your favorite new TV program?
Sorry, TV is not in my lifestyle.  But I do like the things I see from PBS and Discovery channel and National Geo that are on streaming.

6. What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015? 
I'd like my organ back.  It wasn't it's fault.  A medicine chased it all the way into oblivion.  Some of these new medicines can't be trusted with the human body.  Sorry if this is gross but you did ask.

7. What dates from 2015 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
 The dates for the creation of the three new National Monuments created the President.  Why?  Because it was the right thing to do.  Like presidents before him, he has set these lands aside for all Americans to enjoy and take pride in.  These monuments, 13 of which President Obama created in his tenure, are safe forever.  

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I've gotten braver.  The American kids are, too.  I'm so proud of them!

9. What was your biggest failure?
I failed to recognize the signs of something that is going to be trouble for my dominant hand.  

10. What was the best thing you bought?
The iPadAir.  But I didn't buy it, it was sort of a gift from my sister in law and Mr. Z.

11. Whose behavior merited celebration? 
The Hilliker Family!  Hilliker's Egg farm is going cage free!
Whole Story is Here

12. Whose behavior made you appalled and disgusted? 
There are so many, all are politicians.  Some of the merited people were politicians, too, but because of the way we get our news, the bad got a lot more press than the good.  

13. What song will always remind you of 2015? 
I'll have to pass on this.  There isn't a song I know that was produced in 2015, not a single one.  

14. What do you wish you’d done more of?
 In life of just in this year?  I've done just about everything I could humanly do in this year.

15. What do you wish you’d done less of? 
I've gained 10 pounds which is not going to help in the near future.  I've got to get it off!

16. What was the best book you read?   

 The one I just finished about Ebola.  It was non-fiction.  It was so close to us and sooner than last year, and most of us did not know.

17. What one thing would have made your year measurably more satisfying?
 Getting a wing fixed when it got broken over 18 months ago.

18.  Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.

"I don't really care if no one else believes, I've still got a lot of fight left in me."


  1. You lost an organ?? Oh, my! I missed that this year. I'm glad you seem to be doing well without it, at least.

    Love that song lyric and I believe you've got LOTS of flight left in you.

    Happy New Year, Zip!

  2. Happy New Year, Stacy! And yes, I do have a lot of fight left in me. :-)
    There is still so much to learn and to see! Cheers!

  3. When I read your first answer, my original thought was "You play the organ? And you had one? And you lost it?" I clearly need to pay closer attention to details today. ;-)

    Happy New Year! Here's to a feisty 2016!

    1. Hi Cat, and Happy New Year, and thank you,too!
      Doctors are fond of telling you that you can get along without your gall bladder, but it's just because you can live, but there are differences and you can tell them over time. Doctors do not know everything,yet. It's a "Grain of salt" sort of thing, you know?

  4. I hope you are feeling better. It is hard to lose an organ. And I think you've got a lot of Zip there, Zippi!

    1. Thanks CountryDew. Right now I'm functioning at 50%, and that ain't bad. But the house has suffered, and visitors are coming tomorrow. Eeek! Oh well, the first hundred years are the hardest, eh? ;-)

  5. I'm sorry I missed your birthday! I do hope it was happy. :-)

    Here's to a healthier 2016!

    1. Thank you so much, KG, and birthdays are divinely missable at my age. Once you turn 21 they don't count as mile markers. Well maybe 50 and 75 do. Hmmm? *thinks about it*. At first I wondered how you knew, but it's Rav, isn't it? When I get my shoulder back the first thing I'm doing is some knitting!

  6. I second everyone's comments! Hope you're feeling better and here's to a healthier 2016!

    1. Lia, thank you. And, here's to good health for as all! Too many of the Sunday thieves have been trying to wallow their way out of the mire and thickets of hospitals this year and last. We need a bonzer year!


I love comments. However, since I am not blogging as much anymore, I can no longer accept Anonymous comments. Thank you for understanding...

Wishing you " ♥A Sufficiency of all good things♥."
