Our usual host, Cee, has given the reins of SYW over to Melanie, at sparksfromacombustiblemind. You can find the weekly questions at the above link. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun. Just click the link to find out how. 🙂


Thanks so much, Melanie, for volunteering to keep SYW going! 🙂


Our Questions Today:

When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about?   If you are ‘old’ (a term with different meanings for everyone); what stories do you tell your grandchildren?   

When did something start out badly for you but in the end, it was great?

What do you think you are much better at than you actually are?   Maybe this one’s kinda mean…thoughts?  

What would be the worst thing to hear as you are going under anesthesia before surgery?

and we’ll keep the affirmations and upbeat question just as Cee had it:

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 


My answers:

What stories do I tell my girls and my grandchildren? All kinds! Everything reminds me of a story to tell, so I do. We like to remember things from when they were little, which reminds me of some things I did when I was a kid. Then, I tell my grand-kids stories about their moms, when they were little. They love to hear them. Other than that, the grand-kids like for me to tell made up stories to them, and sometimes we take turns telling part of a made up story to each other.


Something that started out badly, but got better…well, probably I had a cold or flu at some point, and it went a few days, then I got better. Or, the times I had to have surgery, and I woke up after, that was great.


I know the things I’m not very good at, and will admit it…like singing, and math. I like to think I’m a fairly good artist with drawing & painting, but to me, when compared to another persons work, mine is just not on the same level at all. Maybe it’s that thing where it’s all in the eyes of the beholder?


?? Oh, this is kind of a creepy question! But…here’s one I’ve actually heard a couple of different times… I just thought it was funny. The anesthesiologist said to me, “I’m giving you the Michael Jackson drug now, but don’t worry.”


I smiled because my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson came to visit from Missouri for a few days this weekend. We all had a great time, and the cousins, my grandkids, were always keeping us laughing.

The dogs didn’t eat the cats, so that was good.


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. Lovely answers! I’m glad to see the story telling tradition alive and well too! That’s (IMHO) becoming a lost art…. how nice that your family shares it! 😀 And I’ve heard that Michael Jackson drug thing too…um. It killed HIM, is it really the best idea to tell someone you’re giving it to them??

    • Thanks, Melanie!
      Storytelling is fun…either real ones or made up ones. I love how the kids can come up with some really good ones…their imagination amazes me every time.
      Yeah, the MJ comment…it didn’t bother me, but I wonder why they even needed to say that.
