What's the best gift you've ever received?

When I was stationed in the Philippines my first wife hired no less than four massage girls from the Officer's Club to give me a two hour backrub. That was very special :).

To give equal time to my current spouse, you have to know that I love flying and I soloed at a now disused grass strip near Manor Texas, in 1970. She went out there 29 years latter and found the piece of concrete on which I had traced my name and the date, and took some pictures of that and of the old runway. All this she arranged in a very nice frame. Since those times at the old airport were amoung the happiest days of life, it really brought back good memories. This present took me completely by surprise.

I think those two are the best presents I've received.

Getting to go to the Worldcon when it was in Atlanta back in the mid 80s. I had known that my best friend was going, and had even been drafted to help her get her stuff to the hotel. I had been working my hardest not to pout because I just couldn't afford the ticket and the hotel. I didn't know that she had already bought me a ticket and arranged for me to share her room. That memory still glows.
