Saturday 9: Letters From the Sky

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: Letters From the Sky



1. Do you believe that we will ever be contacted by beings from another planet?
No. Do I believe that there is life on other planets, yes. However, space is just so vast that I do not think that we will ever be contacted.

2. Have you or a family member ever traced your family tree?
Yes, as I have been tracing the family tree on Ancestry.com, I see that there are other links out there for my relatives. However, I am debating whether I was want to join the web-site because it is run by the Mormons and I just don’t know if I want to give money to the Mormons.

3. Did you ever consider an acting career?

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages." - William Shakespeare
No.

4. What is the funniest situation you’ve witnessed in a religious setting?
I don’t think that I ever saw a funny situation.

5. What's the first movie you remember ever seeing in a theater?
Oh come on now, do you really expect me to remember something that happened over 60 years ago?

6. What's the most difficult confession you've ever had to make?

Telling family that I’m a transsexual… see if you can beat that! There is probably nothing harder.

7. What is a city that you have visited and hated?
Any mega city. I don’t like crowds, I like to be able to see the sky at night.

8. Has anyone in your life been "they one who got away"?
Yes, and she is probably lucky and I am probably lucky also. It would have been a lot harder to transition if I had a family.

9. Why do you think the 10 foot duck walked into the bar on Thursday Thunks?
What does that have to do with the price pf beans?

First of all, I really like the new look to your blog. I had fun with the new blogger choices as well. I imagine that talk with your family was very nerve racking. I remember when my sister asked me to come over to discuss something "very important". I was so worried that she was ill. When she told me that she was gay, I fell off the couch laughing. I was so relieved and I said, "That really hasn't been a secret..." So, what you did was extremely brave, my friend...

I think your #8 answer is probably true, it would have been much more complicated.

Bud, so far it has been positive. I heard back from three of my 10 cousins.

So far, no one had a clue. One cousin thought I was probably gay. She wrote, "Thank you for sharing your story with us. I, in turn, shared your letter with my children who, as parents themselves, need to be reminded of the importance of accepting their children as they are.
whatever their differences may be. To see from another person's point of view is always enlightening."
