Writer's Block: Treasure Chest

What is your most treasured possession? Why does it have such a special place in your world? What one item from your past that you no longer have would you give anything to have back?

I have many treasures from the past and present, they give me continuity and comfort. Old things... things I inherited from the grandparents and parents. A pair of prism glasses that let you watch TV while lying flat on your back; a wallet that turns into a shopping bag; old slide rules, abaci, and other calculating devices; The first TI digital watch; a portable sundial (museum replica); many, many others.

If I could have one thing back that I had gotten rid of, it would have been my Petal camera - they're worth a small fortune now, and mine was new in the box. But there are many other things I'd love to have back as well... old toys I played with, not to mention my comic collection that could have put my kids through college if I had kept them, or my baseball cards (think "Blast from the Past.")

Easy come, easy go.

Ah, my dog eared "Adventure Comics" I had at school.......

The odd camera I had was a Purma Special... I gave it to a pal.
