Fearless Females: Day 16

Today's prompt for the Fearless Female Women's History blog challenge is:

March 16 — If you could have lunch with any female family member (living or dead) or any famous female who would it be and why?  Where would you go?  What would you eat?

I would like to have lunch with my mother.  She's in Texas, 1200 miles away  and I don't get to see her very often or spend much time with her.  I have so many questions to ask her about her life, my dad's life, her parents, her grandparents.  I've been taking stock of what I know about my ancestors, organizing facts and sources, what I know and what I don't know, gaps in the timelines, etc.  I bet she could answer a lot of questions about my grandparents, and maybe even great-grandparents.  It wouldn't matter where we ate or what, I just want to be able to practice being curious and see how much I could learn.
