My favourite possession, well, I treasure all the things my kids and grandkids have given me.
I like coffee mugs and semi trucks. Posters or pics though, not the real trucks. (I wish though!)
I didnt really have a choice in growing up, my dad was a single parent and at the age of 11 I pretty much had to take over the babysitting, as we had the worst luck with good, honest sitters. So I didnt really have anyone else to buy my female things in my teen years and sure as heck didnt know what was going on!

What is your idea of good entertainment? There are many forms of 'good' entertainment that interest my wife and I. That's a difficult question to pin down. But off the top of my head... HUMANS.

I can't figure why a six year old would need a padded bra. Seems weird to me.

What is your most treasured possession ? Family photos and videos. And, of course, my laptop.


Are you a collector of anything? Snowglobes and salt and pepper shakers.


What is your idea of good entertainment? Watching our dog (and the other dogs) run and play at the dog park.

After watching a news story about padded bras for 6 yr olds, I have to ask.
Did you ever do without something, when you were young, because you were to embarrassed to ask your parents for it or buy it yourself? Milk. Those half pint containers of milk in elementary school were never enough. They only cost 3 cents, but I didn't want to ask my Mom for extra money to buy extra milk. My family was far from poor so I don't know what my motivation for not asking was...LOL
