If My place was on Fire, I would make sure that everyone was out first, and be glad that we all made it safely. Family and animals...

<p>&nbsp;Nothing. I'o just walk away and hope they thought I was dead.</p>

<p>My Wife if she was holding my fishing rods ...........&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;; )</p>

my family

<p>Well it would definetely be my cat!!&nbsp; Although as she is a living being I suppose you might not class her as a possession as such, <em>so....</em>if she were safe - then it would be the one and only picture I have of my grandparents together&nbsp;(they have both passed on).&nbsp; I treasure that photo.....</p>

<p>Kids only... okay and maybe the marshmellows</p><br />
<p>might as well make smores while it's burning right? </p>

<p>my late husbands dressing gown it's my comfort blanket. after family, pet, ect</p>

My greatest treasure.....my wife. I would save my dog "Buster". If there was time, Id grab whatever else I could starting with things we'd need like clothes and shoes etc. As I see it....if my family is safe and still with me, then all else can be let go or replaced.

<p></p>

<p>My photographs. You can't replace them.</p>

<p>I don't know about you, but I'd throw everything in, ID and any proof of my existence included, run away never to be seen again and start over elsewhere. Somewhere where I'm not known and never been to. </p><br />
<p>C'mon, admit it...you'd like to do it too...</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>My cats</p>

<p>My laptop, without a doubt. My life is on this thing, and it cost a pretty penny... But, most importantly, my whole life is on this thing. </p>

<p>I'll let it all burn. I'll start fresh.</p>

<p>Assuming "possession" doesn't mean my family, my cell phone because it's&nbsp;how I'm able to talk to my fiance 24/7.&nbsp; If something happened to it, he wouldn't be able to reach me.</p>

<p>I wouldn't save anything.&nbsp;I would be a good excuse to start over anyway and not weighed down, literally, by all the baggage. When I die I can't take anything with me anyway. As long as my family is fine. They are the only things that can't be replaced.</p>

<p>If I could get to it, the gold charm bracelet my grandmother gave me. It's much too heavy to ever wear but worth a tonne in sentimental value</p>

<p>nothing i'd hide in a closet and wait to suffocate</p>

<p>The picture above my bed that my late husband painted.</p>

<p>If not my books, as I'd probably never escape, then my writing.&nbsp; My memories and feelings are somewhat immortalized in everything from my poetry to my journals to my fiction writing.&nbsp; When I feel like I'm losing my self, it reminds me of where I've been and where I'm going.</p>

<p>My Le Creuset pot</p>

<p>It couldn't just be one...would have to be my animals....4 cats and 2 dogs.&nbsp; They are like my family, so I could not leave them behind.</p>

<p>1. My son, (he still owes me five bucks).</p><br />
<p>&nbsp; 2. The bag of marshmallows, (and a stick).</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;3.&nbsp;My&nbsp;***!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><br />

My little box containing my crazy journal, valuable papers and my sweetest photos

<p>With the guarantee that all family members (including pets) were already safe, I'd probably grab my wallet/purse. </p>

Assuming that my cat Shakespear was out of harms way, I guess I would say screw it in regard to any posessions. I would just accept that my life would have a new begining, after all the best time to live is now. Be greatful for what we do have even if its very little. Tommorrow is just another day that may never come.

<p>Uhh</p><br />
<p>myself?</p><br />
<p>If I don't save myself, I can't save anything else, now can I?</p>

<p>Assuming that my dog fits into the catagory of famiy and that they are all safe.</p><br />
<p>My laptop. It contains my offline journal(that I should back up) All of my pictures, music, as well as my notes for class.</p>

<p>My toe socks :)</p>

<p>My dog, Spider.&nbsp; I don't think I could live without her.</p>

<p>Two years ago our town was in a bush fire, we were told to get out and we did cramming all of us as in living things into a car and getting the hell out. We had no time to grab anything else and lucky for us when we returned our house was still standing albeit with soot and ash inside it.&nbsp; Now because we live in a country town where a bush fire has taken hold we keep aside a box large enough to hold some precious things like photos and some other essentials like hmm insurance papers.</p>

<p>I would save my collection of Sarah Palin does Barbara Bush **** flicks</p>

<p>The house, hey that's a possesion!</p>

<p>Just my mermory will do me.</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>Everything else isnt really important If i had to but it would be my bonsai tree it does have a life too you know...</p>

<p>my favourite book</p>

<p>My girl friend and my computer.</p>

<p>Only one possesion? That would be my spiritual books</p><br />
<p>I will need them to guide me to make the right decission, to gain the things I lost in the fire. ..</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>all of my pets the rest is replaceable</p>

<p>First ALL&nbsp;my little sisters would have to be safe along with my parents and my dog.</p><br />
<p>If everyone was already out I'd take...my panda bear.</p><br />
<p>I've had him since before I was born! (my mom got him at her baby shower), and i still have him.</p><br />
<p>Everything else can be replaced.</p>

<p>My panties!</p>

<p>prlby my kitten :]</p><br />
<p>&#60;3</p><br />
<p>;WannaBeCoolKid</p>

<p>As long as my family and dogs were safe......then I would save my laptop.</p>

My guitar

<p>Well I&nbsp;guess my cat,but I'll never leave my grandpa's picture behind.Its' all I&nbsp;have now other than memories ,since my aunt came in here like tornado and took everything and left me with practically nothing of his when he died......</p><br />
<p>Ah crap I'm ranting.....sorry.</p><br />
<p>Yeah I'd just take the cat and his pic</p>

<p>My Glock 17...I will need it the way things are going</p>

<p>My guitar, letters from friends and my cat.</p><br />
<p>I have a bank book already at my bank so....yeah.</p><br />
<p>(I am pretending like my family is already out and fine...)</p>

<p>My pictures of My Daughter, My Parents and My Grandparents. They are all gone now. These are most precious to me.</p>

<p>My dog. Screw everything/one else.</p>
