Theorectial Question

Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire; after saving your loved ones and pets, and important papers you have time to safely make on final dash to save any one item. What would it be?

Hmmm...dang, that is a tough question. I have things that mean something to me but I am not sure what means ENOUGH to me to save it from burning up.

Will have to ponder this!

Pictures of my dad. He passed away when I was seven. Can't get new ones of those!

My first thought was pictures. Memories in pictures, scrapbooks, home movies etc are priceless and are not able to be replaced. Though are they worth running into a burning house. I don't know.

Great thought provoking question!

At first, I wanted to say pictures. But maybe it would have to be my son's blankie. Early on, it helped him learn how to comfort himself. I'm not sure how he'd cope without it at bedtime!

I've asked myself this very question many times. As a result I have all of my negatives and picture cd's stored in a bin. That's what I would save.

I've debated all day between pictures and journals. I still think it would be an extremely difficult decision for me between the two.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I read your perpectives on 6 post and have to agree, my heart is full too.

Now for the question: Scrapbooks seems to be one of the obvious answers. But I couldn't possibly carry them all out in one trip, so my other choice is the beautiful hand made quilt my Grandmother made me. And since it is light and easy to carry, I'd grab my laptop on the way out too.

UGH! (I want it all!) I would have to say family pictures and scrapbooks! (This is a toughie!)

This may be a cop out but I really think my next trip in would be either for the fire extinguisher or with the garden hose as the next thing on my list to save would probably be the house itself...
I was reading an article written the day after the tailing dam broke at Tyrone back in 80's. The were interviewing one of the neighbors downstream and his exact quote was, "My neighbor told me the dam had broke so we better get out of here, so I ran in the house, grabbed two six-packs of beer, and we got out of there!" Lets just say that at least all of your commentors have higher targets than that!

I would have to yank my computer's hard drive. It's got all my important documents, stuff for work, my church calling, and all my photos stored electronically. Not to mention my precious CD burner inside of it which makes me way more happy than it should. All that being said, once I had my husband and my baby, I probably wouldn't go back for anything if I didn't have to.

Good thinkers' questions!

My computer with all my photos on it I think. That's a tough one.
