Favourites:
Color - Green
Book - Skinny DIp (just read it - too funny)
Dinner - Japanese
Drink - Pina Colada
TV Show - CSI Las Vegas
Room - Dining Room - just painted it tomato soup red - yummy
Restaurant - Sui Sha Ya - all you can eat Japanese - yummy (again)

Moment (s) - in Grade six my step-son's class was asked to raise their hands if they had step parents. Several hands went up. Then the class was asked to keep their hands up if they liked their step-parents. One hand stayed up - you guessed it. The teacher called and told me - definately the best moment of my life.

Dessert - "turtle" cheesecake
Candy - anything!

Best Gift - when my Dad died last year I kept a little statue as a momento of him - I bought it for him when I was 12 years old (54 now - long time ago) he had it by his bedside in extended care for 14 years until he passed away. I planted a rose in the front yard in his honor and put the little statue under it. A few days later it was stolen - it had not value except to me. I put in a letter to the local newspaper staing what had happened and a few days later I got my statue back - it had been thrown into someone's yard a few blocks away. It now sits on a shelf never to go outside again - but getting it back was definately the best "gift" i have ever received. TTFN Jennifer

Best Moment- when I saw my best friend from Ohio sitting in the congregation at church with her husband and M-I-L (who goes to our church).After being unable to come down for a couple of years because of home commitments, she finally made it. I just about literally fainted up in the choir loft!! Got very pale-like seeing a ghost.It was a surprise!
Best Gift-My elder son's wedding "present" to me 14 years ago was having my younger son walk into the after wedding dinner in the evening. He was in the Navy and was calling me all the day of the wedding. Little did I know that he was calling from airports-he missed the wedding because of slow delayed connections. It was a Kodak moment as I did a double-take when I realized it was Kenneth.
