The answer to #3 is lightening bugs. ha ha.

Back in around 63 or 64 or 65...Dh (age 12-14) was cutting grass for a neighbor 2 doors down from his parents' house in Ripon. He was just a kid or young teen. There was a house behind that house that belonged to someone that moved to another city and then rented it to college kids. So while DH was mowing he saw the neighbors behind them and said hi and they chatted and the neighbor guys/young adults who were college kids were pleasant and kind. He talked with one of them and he was kind and chatty and it was a good experience.

In years later, DH found out it was Harrison Ford that was talking with him. He recognized him and his neighbor friend shared the scoop with him. To me, it was kind of comforting to know that some of the actors and actresses out there were kind to kids, that it was in their nature to be kind, even before they became famous. Harrison Ford was probably only 21-23, so almost a child himself. *Sigh*, I feel happy about that because the people we see in movies, seem, larger than life, and you never really know their nature. This is just a happy story for DH.
