If Your House Was Burning Down and All Pets And People Were Safely outside...(Tuesday's Question)



...but you had time to grab one more thing. What would it be?


Regrettably, I ran into some trouble this past Tuesday which I explained in the preceding post, "Chicken Feed" but instead of waiting until next Tuesday to post this weeks question, I decided to post it today. Also, I promised to pass out awards to the bloggers who have answered the most Tuesday's Questions this year this week as well. So I decided to post this weeks question this today and next Tuesday I will give out Tuesday's Questions awards.

When I read through Tuesday's Questions archives last week I was blown away by how many of you answered every Tuesday's Question. (You know who you are) Therefore, I want to thank you now, as well as next week with Tuesday's Question's Award For Excellence. Therefore the show will go on, starting with today's belated Tuesday's Question.

This weeks question was suggested by my excellent friend, fellow blogger, and marvelous writer, Dawn from Twisted Sister.

And the question is: If your house was burning down and all people and
pets were safely outside... but you had time to grab one thing. What
would it be?


If this is the first time you've visited Tuesday's Question, I wrote a brief description below:

All participates answers are posted in the same post along with a link to their site, but you don't have to own a blog to participate. All you have to do is write your answer in comments and I will do the rest~

In addition, every participate is welcome to a Tuesday's Question Brag Badge posted with a code in my sidebar. The Brag Badge gives you the opportunity to bring your visitors to archived Tuesday's Questions where you can show off the ingenuity of you and your fellow bloggers past comments.

Whether you are participating or reading, I thank you for stopping by for a visit. Answers will be posted as quickly as possible throughout the day (in today's case the week) with a link to the bloggers blogs who commented, therefore, don't forget to visit the participating bloggers blogs. Chances are if you liked their comments you will like their blogs. Have Fun, and remember Tuesday's Question is a weekly post of original questions, well, questions off the top of my head anyway. ~

With the exception of today, because again, today's question was authored by Dawn from Twisted Sister, a loyal Tuesday's Question participate, fantastic friend and great contributor.

Thanks Dawn~

Alright, get ready, get set...Just kidding, I always wanted to say that, well... writing it is close... Anyway, I'm going to write the question again for those of you with short- term memories, like me: So Ready? Set? Go!

And the question is: If your house was burning down and all people and

pets were safely outside... but you had time to grab one thing. What
would it be?

My first answer is from Grace at Broadway Matron, who said,

My lap top - it has all my photos on it

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My next answer is from my sweet friend Maunie at Mauniejames3, who actually should be disqualified for...well...the question asks what is the ONE thing you would grab...But, I couldn't stop laughing at her answers, so I went ahead and let her slide by...:)) Thanks for the laugh Maunie~


Gee I want to take so many things..
The kids album with all the baby pictures.

My jewelry...(I know a material thing) but my gold charm bracelet and all my earrings...bracelets...

Our box of personal papers with birth certifics...passports...everything important...

Boy Annie...aren't you sorry you asked? LOL

The keys to the house in Florida...

The cup youngest grandchild made.

The picture of my Dad's whole family.

My beautiful plants

The pictures I bought...perfect for me...

The pots my cousin Laurea made me

What I would be happy to leave...
The three stuffed trout hubby and the boys caught at various times.

The deer foot lamp (don't even ask)

The ugly gold chair my mother in law gave us that matches nothing and hubby will not let me put a cover on .

The bows arrows and guns in the gun safe..

The ironing board

All the hunting clothes, boots and parafinallia.

Penney's disgusting toys.

hubby's trophies for skeet shooting.

Wow!!! I am just a horrible wife and Mom...oh yeah and the junk in the garage and basement that hubby's is saving for some thing!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next answer is from the hilarious Ettarose at ettarose-edgeofsanity who would probably have to be retrieved by the fireman along with Maunie for getting more than one thing...

(laughing)...read her answer...

The first thing would be my court papers for guardianship for my three precious Grands. I could get another copy, but I would not take a chance. Then I would try to drag my 3,000 pictures out. Story of my entire life!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next answer is from Margaret at Eyespi20.com

Great answer Margaret~


It would have to be my computer since all my photos are on it. Which is a wake-up call to me to get a couple of thumb drives and back those puppies up to something more portable!

Great question!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next answer is from mrsmouthy.com
who also gave me the link to what appears to be a good children's book. Thanks Mrs. Mouthy, I'll check it out.~



Easy. I'd grab the Internets.

Hey, I see you write children's book reviews. Have you read Babar in awhile? It's MESSED UP and I blogged about it earlier this week, if you're interested. http://mrsmouthy.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!C48DB47FC79C0C2C!1004.entry

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And my next answer came from the author of the question! Dawn from Twisted Sister, is the first person besides myself to have authored a Tuesday's Question~

And it's a great one~ And by the way, Dawn, I'm the one who was late posted the question in the first place` ;)) In addition, you are the author.

Thanks a million Dawn~



I'm sorry I'm late answering Annie... I've been a bit distracted.. but you already know that!
I would grab my photo albums... everything else can be replaced... but those old photos can never be returned.

"Annie" said...

Grace, Great answer...I'm so out of it. When I was thinking about how I would answer this question, I thought, "Would I choose my computer or photos?" (Smile)

Thanks for commenting this late in the game and I apologize for not having your answer posted yet. I hope you read my explanation post. I believe I'm going to repost this question this coming Tuesday and I will add your comment on that post as well as this one, if I do.

I hope you're having a great weekend.

Hug, and cheers~

Annie

"Annie" said...

Maunie, laughing...O.K. You're disqualified....My stomach hurts from laughing. :))

Hugs, and love,


Annie

"Annie" said...

Sue, Great answer! Although, I have a feeling that the fireman would have to go back for you and Maunie.

Although, on the other hand, I can see you getting those 3,000 pictures out.

Thanks for your patience Sue, and for your comment.

You're the greatest~

E-Hug~

Annie

"Annie" said...

Margaret, Great answer too! Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

I'm sorry for the late response.

Cheers!

Annie

"Annie" said...

Mrs. Mouthy, Thank you, for the children's title, I'll check it out.

And thanks for answering Tuesday's Question.

Annie

"Annie" said...

Dawn, What are apologizing for? You are the author of the question. Plus, don't ya think I was a little late? This is a great question Dawn, and I appreciate you passing it along to me.

Luvs Ya,

Annie

i would grab the laptop

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Well, if I was naked...it would be clothes.

If I had clothes on then...I would take the plant that my co-workers sent me when my mother passed away in 1991. I've babied it all these years. Just a regular potted plant, but it's by far my most treasured possession.

Have a great day honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
