Questions to ask people at a smallish luncheon gathering, ideas

A friend invited a small group over for a porch party. I 'armed' myself by making a list of questions I could ask people, or might ask if I were doing a podcast interview. (That is something  I may try one day.) I don't think I got to ask any of these questions. People had plenty of things they wanted to tell each other, or that they just asked each other. Still, I liked that I had my list tucked away. I want to write it up on little question cards too. The wordings in these ideas is not that fluid - more in note form. Later I sent this list to my friend, since I had told her of it but had not been able to find it then. And I included a little digital drawing of this porch party.
