It's time for show and tell on the Connie and Fish show!  What is your prized possession and why do you love it so much?

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
If you had to choose one THING you own (not HUMAN OR PET … LOL) that you cherish more than anything … what would it be? And why?

  • #TQOTD My most prized possession is a pair of Swarovski Crystal earrings my mom passed down to me when I turned 16. They constantly remind me how special our relationship is and I'm pretty sure I will wear them when I get married someday
  • My moms wedding ring, The love they had and still do with him being gone. Things were so simple back then and it was awsome, also my garnet ring. Reminds me of how hard and long I worked for it. 33 years of work at the same place.
  • Pictures/picture albums was the first thing that popped into my head reading the question. Pictures say 1,000 words and remind us of things we might have forgotten without them.
  • My parent's wedding rings, and also my wedding ring. It's all about deep love.
  • The dress my mother wore to my brother's wedding. It would be the last time she went out socially. When I look at it hanging in my closet I remember smiling as she shared the special dance with him.
  • I would probably say my house. It is my sanctuary. Proof that my ex-husband was wrong when he said I'd never make it without him. We we're married 20 years and it took a lot of courage but, 10 years later, I'm making it just fine.
  • My son’s “night night”. It’s a 10x10 square of blue satin that we’ve lost a million times over and always find. He even “mailed it” at the post office once. It’s sacred.
  • My 2 childhood dolls. They got me through a tough childhood but after my mom died my father rented a dumpster and threw everything away without letting us know.
  • My corner curio cabinet my Dad bought me when I was 18. He died when I was 23...he was only 47...
  • I would have to say my house! My dream for years was to live in a condo and my husband and I made that dream come true around 3 years ago! Every time I pull into my driveway, I’m grateful!💚
  • A heart shaped necklace from my dearest friend Gerri, Given to me when she passed away. Unfortunately it was stolen. 😕
  • My locket I wear, it use to belong to the woman who helped raise me and was given to me when she passed, I put the last photo taken of us together in it.
  • A little glass dish from my grandmother. She called it her "fairy dish" because whenever I visited her house I would find candy in it from the "fairies" lol
  • Cologne from my grandpa Bob after he passed away, and camouflage suspenders and a shake flashlight (there's a story behind the flashlight today makes my family laugh) from my grandpa Jay after he passed away
  • Am I a bad person if the one thing I cherish is my cell phone 😉
  • After my dad died my mom had some of my his favorite/most-often-worn shirts made into teddy bears...She made sure that all his children & grandchildren received one.
  • I cherish that bear.
  • My tarot cards. Weird, I know, but I'm deeply connected with one of the decks that I have, and I feel like my mind's been wiped everytime I handle a new or different deck, like I'm learning their names and meanings all over again.
  • Tough decision. I have a teddy bear I got when I was 3 and then a lifetime of photographs taken when I was younger, through school, marriage, kids, divorce and grandkids. I think I'd have to choose the pictures. #Memories
  • My stuffed toy dog Ralph. He was given to me by my big sister on my first birthday and he is still around looking a bit worse for the wear but still holding on 33 years later. She is a few years older than me and saved up her money to get him for me. She did not adjust to no longer being an only child very well so it was a big deal.
  • The blanket I’ve had since I was a kid. I cannot sleep without it. If we travel it must go with.
  • I bought myself a ring 8 or so years ago. Nothing special but I never but anything like that for myself. I wear it everyday and if it's not on my finger I freak out a bit.
  • My grandfather's dog tag from when he served in WW2. It goes everywhere with me. Makes me feel like he's right with me on all my adventures in life. Also my cats ashes. She was my partner in crime and bestie.
  • My Grandfather clock. My Great Grandpa made it. Hubby took it to a clockmaker and got it working again.
  • My home. We moved a lot when I was a kid. Sometimes multiple times in a year. I've now been in the same town for 40 years, and lived in the same house for 26 of them. It's comforting.
  • My great grandmother’s lamp. It’s about 100 years old and still works! It was passed down to my mother and passed down to me when she died. I will pass it down to my daughter when I die.
  • Two things. One is a 45 year old Winnie the Pooh that I tricked my little sister into trading with me when I was 6 and she was 3. Two is a cross necklace my mom gave me when I was 19 after her and my dad divorced.
  • Anything to do with my photo's ,.Reminds me of memories.
  • My grandmother's can opener. She passed away in 2006 at the age of 99.

  • I'm still learning that my most treasured possession is my memories. I have a lot of great memories in my life and i am terrified to lose those. I have found if i cherish something physical... its taken away. For example, my childhood home. I thought i would inherit that house one day and was excited for that. Then my mom sold it and it was just recently tore down and apartments are going up there. Breaks my heart. But nobody can ever take my memories.
  • TQOTD....Sadly my phone. It's the next best thing to keeping in contact with friends and family and documenting my family. I suck lol I have nothing truly worthy of a "prized" possession.
  • My most prized possession is a cassette tape of my moms voice recorded. And it's special because my mom passed away when I was 15. (I'm 48). Tape recorders were newish and we were playing around with recording. In the background you can hear the tv and it's the live news of Reagan getting shot, so I can also pin down the day it was recorded.

  • Connie and Fish! I've been thinking about your question all morning and I don't have any family heirlooms really that were passed down to me so the one thing that I think I cherish more than anything is a watch my husband bought me for our 15 year wedding anniversary. I'm really into watches and my dream watch has always been a Rolex. So on my 15 year wedding anniversary my husband surprised me with a beautiful Rolex that I cherish so much and I wear every day. And I know that one day I'll be able to pass it down to one of my kids.
  • #tqotd mine would be marvel avengers comics I had a very rough child hood and the only way I could escape my reality was to read those comics and join there's it was my only escape and now I believe that is why I love all the marvel movies is because it was my escape back then!!! #iamgroot #hamburger #oletymesteve
  • My fathers finger……….. picks for picking banjo... miss hearing him singing and playing
  • My new knees (Turner & Hooch)...I can't wait to live my life for real! Hooch is new, so it'll still be a lot of therapy, but by next summer, I'm gonna be kickin' butt!
  • My playboy collection helps pleasure my needs lmao no seriously probably be some of my dads stuff he passed away he was my best friend
  • My most prized possessions are My parents and grandparents wedding rings
  • My FOOT! Yes, my foot... I was born without a left foot. Throughout my life I've had many very cheaply made prosthetics... In 2010, I was lucky enough to meet with an amazing prosthetic artist out of battle creek. He made me a perfect foot that looks exactly like my real foot!!! It basically changed my life... Being an active mother of two, its been through many repairs and I need a new one, however, its extremely expensive and insurance will not help with any of it! Needless to say, its still my most cherished possession!
  • TQOD: my grandmas cow spoon rest . It's kinda ugly but it reminds me of her and my childhood:) I use it every day when I get my coffee
  • My 8 year old daughter bought me a cross necklace 4 years ago for mothers day. It was her first ever present she was able to pick out and wrap on her own at 4 years old. She didnt know what the Cross was for, she got it for me because it was a "T" for my name, Tori. I wear it every day and haven't taken it off since I put it on 4 years ago.
  • It's my phone. It keeps me in touch with everyone in my life
  • My most prized possession is my sun tea jar I got feom my grandpa when he passed. It reminds me of all the summers spent by his pool growing up and he'd have it out brewing all day. It started my love for unsweetened tea!
  • My sons while you were singing the KP song, "connie is the only one trying, fish is just singing random things. ". "Did he just say he was going to have a heart attack?"
  • My most prized possession is the mother's ring my three children bought me. It was the first gift that I didn't give them money for that. They save their own money and completely surprised me.
  • I cherish mine and my sons first race bibs that we ran together. He was 3 when we did his first 5k together and now that race has become a tradition for the both of us.
  • The items that I own that I cherish the most, besides my children, which one of them being Lelands says good morning buddy to fish, is the three bullets and the American flag that I got from my dad's 21 gun salute and military funeral 3 years ago when my dad passed away. When we were remodeling our house they got moved and I didn't know where they were and it made me feel like my heart was being ripped out of my chest again. But they were found and I have them so all is well. Good morning guys, have a great weekend Connie fish and Steve love Candice and Leland
  • My most prized possession is a ruby ring. I'm not even sure the actual Ruby is real, it might be a fake gem, but it is set in a 10k setting. It's plain and simple, nothing fancy, but my Grandpa gave it to my Grandma, and then it was passed down to my mom. When I turned 16 it was passed down to me, and when my daughter is old enough, it will be passed down to her. It is to always be passed down to the first born daughter. It has tons of sentimental value to me, as both of my grandparents have passed away!
  • Ooooo picture of you w/a bow tie , please,please! I bet your cute as a bug in a rug!
  • I have a lot of things that I value so much. I bought my maternal grandpa some penguin salt and pepper shakers for Christmas in 1986, he passed in 1990. He wrote my name on the bottom of them. My paternal grandpa passed away one year and 8 days later and I have a cassette tape of him and my grandma talking to us after they moved to Oklahoma. That is how we would communicate.
  • I have a stuffed animal rabbit that I had as a baby. My 15 year old daughter still sleeps with it...I'm 34. Quality bunny right there.
  • This is a tough one the stuffed otter I have or my St. Christopher medal that my grandmother gave me
  • #tqotd Clothes from my grandmother my mom's mom she was my best friend she passed away when my brother was a year old he is now 19 and for some reason the clothes still to this day smell like her
