    Wow, these answers are so heart rending. My answer would be
    1. My precious family on earth
    2. My precious family in Heaven
    3. Jesus Christ
    4. Crazy Horse
    5. Hazel of the '60's sitcom to clean up and straighten out 1 and 2(mostly 2)

    I would like to meet my father. He took his own life at 24 and I was just a baby. I attend our family reunion every year and I take the only known photo of him that my cousin so graciously traced down for me. I'd like to know why and I would just love to have some time with him.

    1. Jane Stickle she made the original "Dear Jane" Quilt

    2. Glenn Beck.

    If Glen is to be there. Why not invite Bill and Sean?

    One of the main Knights Templar......did they really go off with the Chalice or the Ark of the Covenant and did they ever come to North America?
    A Peruvian King.......how did those lines and animal shapes get on top of a mountain and why?
    A Mesa Verde, CO, Cliff Dweller.......did they ever worry about their toddlers falling 'overboard' from those cliff homes and why live there in the first place??
    Sarah and Abraham.....what was it like to have a baby at age 90?!!
    A Chinese person, a European person, and an Egyptian from 2000B.C. to compare how and why Europe was so far behind the others in civilization and inventions.
    Shakespeare.....did he really write all the works attributed to him?
    A very distant relative named Martha Frances Collier who made a quilt ca. 1780 that I inherited and donated to the Textile Museum at Colonial Williamsburg........Did she ever live at Portobello Plantation (now Camp Peary in Williamsburg VA), did she make other quilts, how did she meet her husband (from whom I get part of my name)?

    I'm sure there are others to invite to "my table" if I had more time to think of them.

    I had thought about this several years ago and I think my answer is still the same. Isaac Asimov. He was interested and knowledgeable in so any different things I've always thought it would be great to talk to him.

    I wonder if any of us are journaling our lives so our future family won't have some of the questions we are asking? I haven't. My life seems too uneventful to bother! But that is not true when I think about the interest I have in my past family's daily life!

    What a great idea! Many years ago we gave our parents and grandparents books to write their memories. They said there was nothing worthwhile writing. NO! So I wrote down as they talked and am so glad I did. Grandma telling about her parents coming to America, Grandpa telling about his early jobs, Aunt Anna's stories of being a midwife (self taught) on the prairie, Dad growing up with 16 brothers and sisters, Mom being a little girl helping in the General Store, on and on. Now I record (on the computer) my own memories of one-room schools, endless canning on sweltering summer days, etc. Not exciting, but maybe my great-great grandchildren will find it interesting. Better print it out as who knows what kind of computers they will have then.

    I would love to see my Nana again, she was my step great grandmother, but I really wish I could have spent more time with her. My first set of in-laws. I wish I could tell them how much they meant to me . They were more loving parents to me than my own and I was just too young to see it. Can't think of any "famous" people off the top of my head. For the people I never knew names etc I would love to get with some of the old Wise
    Women and Shamans from way back when and learn from them. They knew how to live with Mother Earth and not abuse her.

    I would love to have lunch with my maternal grandfather. He deserted my grandmother when he learned that she was
    pregnant with my mother.

    My other choices would be Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Margaret Sanger.

    Your question reminded me of a guest my sisters and I shared lunch with year before last. We had been at a Christian conference in Colorado Springs and the vocalist was Babbie Mason. Following the last session, we went for lunch in the hotel complex. My two sisters had gone off to shop while I held our place in line. Babbie arrived alone and, on impulse, I asked her to have lunch with us. We chatted and, impish sister that I am, I put her up to going into the little shop my sisters were in and calling them by name as if she knew them. She happily agreed to indulge me and my sisters were amazed! Babbie was just delightful and we so much enjoyed lunch with her. She even sang (beautifully and tastefully) our grace. What a blessing and a treat for all of us sisters!
    I'd love to have a meal with so many people but I am grateful for the opportunities to break bread with wonderful folks I've taken advantage of. Hope I haven't missed any and will be on the lookout in future for more. Thank you for triggering such a wonderful memory!

    Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, For I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.

    Hm... good question. I think I'd start with my Great Grandma Anne. I never met her but everyone says I look exactly like her. Her youngest brother even called me Anne everytime he saw me. My Papa, he passed away a couple years ago and it's still hard to get through July. George Washington, Ronald Regan, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Derek Jacobi, Patrick Stewart, and Many Many more!!!

    Am I the only one that wants to have lunch or dinner with Kevin Cosner? Preferably dinner.
    I would also like to have dinner with my Mom and Dad, my 2 sisters, and 3 brothers who are in Heaven now.

    As much as I would love to lunch with some of the other's mentioned (i.e. Jackie O, Katherine Hepburn, etc.....), I would choose my "real" Dad who died a month before I turned 3. I have a lot of questions I would ask. I was blessed with the best step-dad ever later on....so I consider him my Dad now, as he raised me. I don't think I would choose Jesus like some of you, though. I would be a fidgety mess through the entire lunch! LOL

    I am going to go with non-family here

    Still living:
    1. The Queen of England (my grandfather always taught me to dine as if I were dining with her, so I know how)
    2. Giorgio from Ancient Aliens so I could have a great hour of giggling.
    3. Guy Fietti because he knows the best places to eat.
    4. Chuck Norris, another hour of giggles.
    5. Matt Damon.

    Non-living
    1. Frank Zappa
    2. Kahlil Gibran
    3. Danny Kaye
    4. Lucille Ball
    5. Princess Diana

    So many choices! My favorite is still Mike (dh) and my sons.

    Yes Scraps I did realize.. there are so many that I didn't mention that I would love to meet again now that I am an adult. My father died when I was 12, I would love to hear his voice again. The memories are still there of our "special times together".
    The family stories that I have heard about a bunch of my relatives-I would love to meet. Freedom of the slaves, the wars that they served in. Supposedly our family history is back to General Washington's time for the family members who served in it.

    Sister Theresa would be a great choice to hear her virtues on life. Oprah is a magnificient person as well ..
