What's your most prized, non-U2 possession?

(Pets don't count)
I must say either the picture of me with John Kerry or my originial 1960 Kennedy campaign poster would be the favorite thing I own.

Hm, I would think it would be obvious but it's really not for me. I'll have to think about it awhile.

My prized possession...a doll that I've had since I was 2 years old. I named her Alice after the "Alice In Wonderland" movie. A relative of mine made her for me, so she's a one-of-a-kind doll, and if I ever lost her, I would NOT be happy. She has a lot of good memories attached to her and everything.

My most valuable possession, period, is a garnet cross that's been blessed by the pope. You can't put a price tag on something like that.

I went to the Vatican and got it. When I got it I thought it was glass. Later on my Italian in-laws told me it was garnet, which is common and therefore cheap in Italy. That's beside the point, the thing that makes it special is the papal blessing.

I'll have to think about that one, though one comes to mind immediately...

A picture of my Grandpa and I in his kitchen when I was 6 years old. In the picture he's cooking but has leaned down so I could give him a kiss on the cheek. He was my only living "blood" grandparent, my mom's dad, and the picture was the first thing I put on my refridgerator when I moved.

Tough question, I cant really think of anything major non U2 that is worth mentioning.

One thing that I will get eventually is a family heirloom. My great, great grandfather was a Dutch sea captain. His ship saved a crew of an English ship that was sinking back in the 1900's. The English government presented him with an engraved telescope for the rescue. My Dad has it currently but it will be handed down to me someday. If I never have children I will probebly pass it on to one of my nephews.
