Edited to say: Birds are my favorite “wild” animal, and horses and dogs are favorite domestic ones.   


Your favorite songs
All my favorites that aren't from the following bands are Classical from Operas or written for the Guitar or Lute.

 Your favorite bands
A to Z?  AC/DC, Aerosmith, Allman Brothers, Annie Lennex, Beach Boys, Bob Marley, Bruce Springsteen, the Beatles, Boston, Chicago, Credences Clearwater, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull, Journey, Pink Flyod, Led, Queen, Van Halen, The Who, ZZ Top.

Your favorite actors or actresses
Just about any actress or actor that does a good job in their role gets a nod.  The only one I really cannot stand is Adam Sandler.  I'll never watch anything he's in.

Your favorite books:  
yet again, far too numerous to list.  People need their sleep.  Hmm that might actually work.  Borrrriinggggg..

Books you dislike
I just have a hard time with a few very popular women's chick flick writers, and HE MEN sort of junk.  Otherwise, I pretty much like anything printed, fiction or not fiction.  I have never read "Mein Kampf".  Or Mao's little red book, but I have a copy of Hegel's book. ;o)    

Your favorite movies  
They are Legion... far too numerous to list.  Pages and PAGES- this is because films are my favorite art form.  Wait!  That honor goes to music.. OK..Second favorite.  

Your favorite TV shows  
No longer have any.

Your favorite foods/drinks
Burritos, Root beer, ice cream, my grandmother's potato salad.

Your favorite animal  
Horses and dogs.  They are inseparable in my mind.

 Your favorite scents 
those would be...Pine forests after a rain, and vanilla.  I also like the smell of lavendar in the garden.

 Your hobbies/ things you do in your free time 
I like to knit, read, and play a card game on my tablet. I used to love working in my garden.

 Your pet peeves 
I get peeved when my pets die.  We are very close to that time now.  So many things are looming.. *les Sigh* 

 Things you collect
Anything rusty, plus: rocks, minerals, tea pots.

 Things you like to swap:  You mean like trade?  Ideas.. I like to swap ideas with other people.

 Places you've been  I am really not well traveled.  Didn't plan it that way but that's the way it turned out.  

Places you'd like to visit:  Australia, especially Tasmania.  I'd like to go to Europe a bit.  Track down the family of my Austrian Great Grandfather, and I'd like to see the South of France and head over to Turkey to visit my friend.  

 The songs you dislike  
I just join Spotify and the stuff they have for Acoustic Guitar is mostly that sad, Whiney stuff.  Hate it.  Sort of Irish ballad (which I love) meets Grunge.  *shudders*

 The movies you dislike
Anything with a roman legion or a gladiator in it.

 The TV shows you dislike
I don't like most sitcoms.

 classes you liked in school
I liked English Grammer, English Lit, P.E., Art classes, Choir, American History, and Geometry.  

 classes you disliked in school
Algebra.  I HATED Algebra.

 crafts you would like to learn
I really know a lot of crafts.  And I can't think of anything I didn't get a chance to turn a hand to.


  1. I won't watch anything with Adam Sandler in it either. I think he is horrible and his treatment of women in his movies is deplorable. You did a good job with these questions.

    1. Thanks CountryDew. And another one who understands why Sandler is a big turn off. He's also such a DUH actor, that no script can rescue. lol

  2. Thank you so much for the Songcatcher recommendation. I loved it!! Your grandmother's potato salad made me think of my mother's deviled eggs...should have included that in my Sunday Stealing! Have a great week.

    1. It's lovely isn't it. I'm glad you liked Songcatcher. Reminds me that watching it again is required by me! Makes me believe all things are possible.
      Ooooo deviled eggs are delicious. It's lovely to have the old family recipes, isn't it? Have a Happy week, Me...

    2. PS. Your post is AWESOME! I'm going back to read it again this week, in depth, i.e. follow all the links and listen to all the songs! So hear you about the Idiot and Chief.
