Good point...I don't put much value in the cool shoes I had to have or the comic books I collected as a kid, but some of my finest memories as a child were at the dome with my dad watching the Oilers play. Paki is still young and doesn't understand this stuff.
When you are on your deathbed, you aren't going to think of your fine hardwood table or your nice surround sound system....the only thoughts you will have in your mind are the memories you made with the people in your life. None of that other stuff really means much at the end of the day.
