    Okay this is a very material answer.  Years ago we had a beautiful red Porsche 911.  We had gotten a great deal on it from a firefighter that needed cash fast.  We loved that car.

    My husband was transferred and had to drive 120 miles round trip to work and maintenance on the Porsche was expensive.  So we sold it, afraid at some point it would need a new engine that we couldn't afford.  We bought a vega wagon. 

    Seriously, when we called to insure the new car, the insurance lady was stunned, she said, "Let me get this striaight, you sold a Porsche and bought a Vega?"

    Yeah we still can't believe it either.

    I have a gold locket which was my Mother in laws...when she died dad gave it to me and asked me to give it to the first grandaughter on her 18th birthday..I promised I would wear it until the day came and then give it to her.

    My grandaughter was born 8 weeks after mum died and I renewed my promise on that day that the locket would be handed to her on her 18th birthday...she is now 11 so I have 7 years left to wear the locket,it is very precious to me and I wish i could keep it,BUT a promise is made and I shall fulfil it when the day arrives

    One of my dogs. She was the first and so far only animal I've ever had to surrender, because to me a pet becomes part of the family for life. I lived in a town that had a two-pet ordinance, and I had my two dogs. Later I met my (now ex) husband and moved in with him -- but he also had two dogs. Everything went fine for a while, but this particular dog was an escape artist and managed to get out of the kennel a couple of times and jumped out of a second-story window on the 4th of July, thus attracting the attention of animal control. The animal control officer started dropping by threatening to cite us for having too many animals, and finally gave me an ultimatum before a citation -- when I was two weeks from delivering my son and my then-husband had just lost his job. We could not afford a citation, and surrendering one of the dogs sufficed to appease animal control so she no longer bothered with us having one animal over ordinance. This dog proceeded to escape from the shelter eight times and I'd wake up and she would be sitting under the tree in the front yard, then howl pitifully whenever I had to return her to the shelter. She's been gone for five years now, and having to give her up still haunts me.
