I would like to know your most magical memory from your childhood. Any age can respond. I set up a little questionnaire to make it easier for you. There is only one catch: I would like your memory to come from the ages of as early can you can remember to age 15. The memory can be one word, a few sentences, but it has to be GOOD and magical for you! No bad memories allowed! 1. What is your most magical memory from your childhood??? 2. Why???? 3. Please give the age of your memory: 4. How old are you now (come on now, it's only a number!): 5. How long has it been since you thought of this memory? I will go first to break the ice. 1. learning how to make a tipi in my grandmother's woods. My grandmother knew how to do everything! 2. My grandmother was a constant in my life. She was such a good person and loved me very much. She was always willing to spend time with me and show me how to do things. Our tipi's were awesome. We would camp out in them and look at stars at night. Also, the pine woods in Louisiana have the best smell. 3. 8 years of age 4. 47 and I still camp out. Not in tipis, but tents! 5. I have been thinking about it more because of my son. Also, my grandmother died on Feb. 15 so I make a point of thinking about her and all the wonderful things she taught me. I am looking for an opportunity to show my son how to construct a tipi.

1. Playing in the sandpit in our garden 2. Because it is my earliest memory 3. 4 4. 49 5. About 2 days. I think of that house and garden often. Even though I don't think that I could find it now without a map! Good discussion.

thank you. I appreciate your answer. It was probably summer or spring when this happened??? Do you mind me asking what you do for a living now? I should have asked this question in the initial discussion, but I didn't think of it until after I hit the button.

Up until last November I was head of an employee assistance programme company that provided services to the British Government. After a period of protracted illness I resigned and am now working on a book that I am co-authoring about the history of British inn signs.
