A Question…
Monday, April 23rd, 2012

I’m back from Memphis! Had a terrific time with the ladies from the River City romance chapter. They were warm, funny, smart—and fed my sister and I way too well! 🙂 Today’s supposed to be my day to hunker down and begin writing the multitude of stories with due dates in the near future, but first, I have an appointment this morning with a judge that I can’t miss. Don’t worry, I’m not up on any indecency charges! I am going for moral support for my SIL who has a custody hearing thingie goin’ on.

Since I have to run out the door in a little bit, here’s a question to keep you all busy (like you all don’t have a million things to do already on a pretty Monday morning!)…

What is one item you own that has virtually no monetary value but has such sentimental value that you would not sell it for $1000.00?

I’ll talk with you later! DD

    My family photos. Since both sets of my grandparents died years ago when I was so young, you couldn’t pay me enough for those photos.

    The complete Tyler Harlequin series. My grandmother gave them to me before she died. I miss her so much.

    Strider is my giant teddy bear, named after the horse in He-Man (yes, I watched and loved He-Man as a kid). He’s about three feet sitting down, currently located on my dresser. I got him when I was a kid… I would say 4 or 5. My dad brought him home from Korea. I even have a pic of when he gave it to me. That bear has endured every move and will endure many more. I have treasured him and kept him in the best shape. You would never know he’s as old as he is. I will never ever sell him, no matter what amount of money is offered.

    I glad you had fun in Memphis. I am from there. Since I married a Navy guy my home is where he is station at the time. I have a couple of things. The first ring my parents gave me, the first ring my husband bought me. The one thing I would not sell at all and it will break my heart when it is time to let go is my dog. My dad dead 4 years ago. He had cancer. My dad want a lap dog to sit with him while he was going through this. He found Pericous. She is the best dog any way. When he die, my sister and her husband moved in with my mom and brought 2 dogs. Pericous and the other did not get along. So my mom gave me the dog. Everyday I look at the dog I think of my dad. My kids tell their friends how we got the dog. Because Pericous did not have a date for when she was born by kids gave her my dads birthday date. So I would not sell her for anything. I will be hard for us when the time comes for her to go see my dad again.

    I love your writing and have become a huge fan. The one thing is my Cirque Du Solie sweat shirt. It’s holds a sentimental value for me because it was the first time I ‘d ever worked with a circus and had opened my eyes to new and different things. 💡

    I still have my teddy bear from when I was a child. It looks pretty bad, but I still have it and wouldn’t part with it.

    It would have to be my book collection of all of the authors I love to read. Sometimes I get lost in the stories. Also I want to be able to call myself an author good enough for people to want to collect my works. So my books are a constant reminder to do my best and never give up my dream.

    I have an old Staffordshire pottery dog figurine circa 1900 that belonged to my grandmother. It’s chipped, and in fact it fell over on it’s nose at some point! lol! But my great-grandfather who was a doctor gave it to her when she was about 4 years old. He subsequently died of pneumonia a few years later. So even though it’s ratty-looking, I could never sell it!

    A hand made blanket from a grandmother that passed when I was about 10. I still have it to this day. She made one for my sister and borther also. I am the only one that still has mine. It needs to wash on a delicate cycle and I have had to sew a few seems back together. But there is nothing that I would want to give it away.
    I also have pillow covers that my grandfather gave me when I was 7. My dad cannot believe I still have those. They have puppies and kitties on them and I love them. I wont part with those either.

    My son’s stuffed bunny. He got it when he was a baby and it was the only thing he would hold to make him go to sleep. He’d run his tiny fingers across the ribbon on its neck and drift off.I put it up years ago so I wouldn’t lose it or mistakenly throw it out. It’s almost thirteeen years old and ratty but I wouldn’t take a dime for it!

    I have my grandfather’s old wornout sharpening steel. He was trained as a chef by the USN and also trained as a butcher. When I bought knives for food service classes, Grandpa was thrilled I asked him to help me choose. He gave me the steel and taught me how to use it.

    My son’s father gave me a Keystone Whiskey bottle back in the 70s that is a Black and Tan Doberman statue. It was actually filled with whiskey back then, but dried out over the decades. The plug is beneath the base on which the dog stands. When my beloved Doberman “Wren” passed away in 2003, my husband suggested we fill the hollow statue with some of Wren’s ashes. I thought it was a brilliant idea. That statue sits on my bookcase, and I think of my brave, gentleman of a dog, Wren, every time I look at it. I’m sure it has some value by now, but it isn’t for sale at any price.

    The string of pearls my parents gave me for my 21st birthday. They are more precious than their actual worth.

    I’d have to say my wolf stuffie that I sleep with. YES! You read right! I’m 46 and I sleep with a stuffed wolf! *sigh* Hubby works nights, until 2 am. I needed something to snuggle so he got me the stuffie. His name is Lobo. I know, so original! I have had it now since Christmas 2005.
