Sunday Stealing: The "Doing Questions Like It's 2003" Meme

This week's Sunday Stealing was found on a blog named “Catlin Etc”. Catlin describes herself as “a 30-something lady living the best life ever with my hot husband, spunky toddler and needy dog.” She explains that she stole it from Karen at “Tiny Bird Heart”. But that’s as far as we go. Tracing questions back to the original author is just too much work. Time to toast! Cheers to all of us thieves!
1. Tell us about your pets. I have one dog, named Shelby and a tankful of fish.  The fish are all tetras is various sizes.  Shelby is a boxer/catahoula hound mix, and is nearly 12 years old.

4. What was the last film you saw? Did you like it? Ratchet & Clank.  It had great graphics, good music and an ok plot.

5. Tell us about the last trip that you took. The last trips I took were to Texas.  My son, Colt, was in a cancer hospital in Dallas.  I left Wisconsin on March 9th, headed back to Texas to see Colt.  Colt passed away in the early morning hours of March 10th....I was only halfway there when he passed.  I didn't get to say good bye.  This photo is the last photo Colt took of himself the day before he passed.
6. Where do you buy groceries? Why? Wal Mart mostly because I can stop on the way home from work, they have everything I need and prices are ok.

7. Tell us something that you did today. Or will do if you haven’t had your morning coffee yet.  I plan on cleaning the house and relaxing afterwards.

8. Have you pulled an all-nighter? Not in many, many years. 

9. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi & Coke? I can taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke.  I prefer Diet Cherry Coke over Diet Cherry Pepsi; regular Pepsi over Coke and Coke Zero over Pepsi Max.

10. Tell us about your siblings. How many and what do they do? I have only one sibling, my brother Brian.  He is a truck driver.

International Day of

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution 36/37, the General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to “commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.”

Furthering the Day’s mission, the General Assembly augmented the original resolution in 2001, fixing the date on 21 September.  Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.

The Day’s theme for 2016 is “The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace.”
