For anyone new to Koffee Klatch, please stay and join in the fun. We don't care what forum you participate in or the disorder you are fighting...just come on in and enjoy the friendship here daily. The only rule we have here is there is NO talk of the "P" (pain)word...lol Here is where we reflect on questions or ideas, share stories we love and talk about
our lives and families....all the fun and happy things. We certainly deserve it!
So each day come see what's going on at the Koffee Klatch. You can participate in either the Chronic Pain forum or the Fibromyalgia forum since those are the 2 I help moderate. Or come post in both if you like. Many of us bring our morning coffee and/or breakfast to the computer and enjoy while we post on the Koffee Klatch. Please join us!
For today let's talk about
the stuff we collect. Oh sure...it's stuff we probably don't need but it's also the stuff memories are made of. When we travel is often the time we collect things. They may be something specific you enjoy collecting or maybe you just bring home a variety of things to remind you of your trip. Or maybe you aren't a collector at all. If you are, what sort of things do you collect when you are traveling??
Hubby bought me a charm bracelet for Christmas several years ago with the intention of adding charms when we go places. It's something tiny as a reminder and not something I have to dust!
But since I collect penguins it's not always easy to find good ones when we do travel. Most of our trips are to the same area in our own state...we pull our travel trailer out to a camping spot on the Pacific Ocean. But if we go further I love to bring back a stuffie or two. You know...stuffed animals. My favorite are the ones by the Audubon society or the WWF ones. I don't buy many but have a few I cherish.
The other think I think I enjoy more than bringing back purchased items are the pictures we take. Last fall when we went on a longer trip out of state we took one of the favorite stuffies that our one grandson sleeps with when he comes over...and that's often.
Then whenever we found a fun picture that had a
location written on it we would prop up the little puppy, snap a picture and we're making an album for him this coming Christmas. We took pictures of the little puppy on top of national park sign posts, rest stop posts, major freeway signs...you get the picture. Proof of where the puppy traveled. We also took pictures of other groups of items for scrapbooks for other grandkids related to items they love.
What do you collect when you travel?
Play fair. Don't hit people. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
