What would you take with you?

The local news was just interviewing people who had to leave their homes in a big hurry because of a brush fire that got out of control yesterday. It was interesting to me what people threw in their cars when they only had a few minutes to get the heck out of Dodge.

So, just as a hypothetical question, what would you take with you if you could only snatch one or two things from the impending flames? Assuming your kids were already safe somewhere else, because any mom would grab her little ones first, or if not, I don't even want to hear about it.

  • My handbag (because it contains a cheque book, my banker's card, my car keys, my ID, my car papers, my cash), the med box, a coat... and the cat.
