    I just told this to some folks the other day because I think it is genius. My 2nd grade teacher was a nun who gave prizes for reverse jelly bean sucking contests. 25 kids would sit still for at least 15 minutes with a jelly bean balanced on their tongues hoping it would not dissolve. Whoever had their jelly bean last got the prize. What a sneaky way to get some peace and quiet as a teacher! I lost my little medal of the pope, lol. icon_eek.gif

    To start, reading your post here will be a treasured memory. icon_wink.gif

    This is small, and oddly sticks out in my mind. I was in a large box chain department store parking lot, WALMART, and this one (really hot) guy was struggling to move a line of shopping carts back up to the store. I saw him as I was about to pull out, and another customer, an equally hot older man, was about to take my space.

    Anyway, the cart guy was giving the carts a heavy push to maintain his momentum. I stopped so that he could keep the carts going, something anyone would have done (hopefully). The guy in the other car gave me a look like I was terrifically kind and hospitable in the moment, and then the cart guy turned back and gave me the same look and nod. It was odd because all three of us men shared a touching moment.

    You had to be there. icon_wink.gif

    I was at Junior World Championships in Cross-Country skiing, in Ruhpolding, Germany. One of the Slovene kids didn't seem to have anyone to help him, so I prepped his skis, and when he was in the warming pen, I took his warm-ups and told him they'd be in our hut when he finished.

    As it worked out, I was in the finish area when he finished (6th place!) and was able to hand them to him. That night, he walked into our hotel room, handed me a bag with his freshly-laundered Nat'l team racing suit on it, said "Thank you for helping me" and walked out.

    One of the really good moments of my ski life.

    I afterwards became good friends with the Slovene Team, and still stay in touch.

    a treasured memory of mine that is the best to share with my friends. the best memory i have is with my grandpa when i was 5 years old. i wasnt supposed to go out with him and my dad fishing and he smuggled me into the boat and took me anyway. the best is i caught the only two fish and he laughed when we got back home because my mom was waiting for us on the pier she told me i was grounded and he laughed started to motor back up and took off again.as we were leaving he told my mom his best grandson isnt grounded unless he does the grounding lol lol. simple but a great memory of him.

    my favorite memory involves my grandfather also. My mother took me to his house because I was sick and he made me the kind of breakfast he was accustomed to at my age. eggs, pancakes, sausage and bacon.....then a steak. during the time we just talked and visited for what seems like hours but it was just a few hours
    I miss him so much, even now.
