The Questions Of Age

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog
authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among 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 questions 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 recently asked questions from a previously post.

We found this gem  from a blog named A Striped Armchair. Eva is the name of its author, who started it at the age of 20 in 2007. She has stated that she started the blog to explore and write about her love of books. She shared, “My perfect afternoon is spent in my armchair with a fat book, my rescue mutt Thistle curled up in my lap, and huge mug of tea nearby.” Like so many other blogs and authors, Eva’s posts stopped in September of 2015. We’ve discussed this about of blogs in general, and because of other social media and the like, we are not surprised Eva's days on her blog ended

We have published today's post a bit late for us (most blogs of this type publish the day before its stated day. Our delay may also be because we are selling our home. We have already had a of of showings. With my ongoing disability and facing the reality that at my age of 65, let's face the fact that my peak career earning years are behind me so it's the perfect time to downsize. We have four bedrooms (although the "bedroom" off our den is the currently the WTIT Studio) with three full baths in a nine-room home. For two people at this stage of our lives, it is a bit much to maintain both from a physical standpoint and perhaps more importantly considering all things financial. Back to today's post: Eva was tagged for these questions by her friend Emily. And that is as far as we will go. We hope you will enjoy today’s post!

Cheers to all of us thieves! 

Editor's Note: Today our questions have a different format. This is not a “fill-out-the-blank” exercise. Rather, we’d ask that you to “finish the paragraph”. As always, we are trying to learn more about you, our friend.

I found this one difficult to answer, many of the questions. Perhpas at 74 I'm just too old for it (especially since it wants to know what I'm goig to do "when I'm 66." Heck, I can't even remember what I DID when I was 66!)
