What is your favourite Hanukkah memory

What is your favorite childhood memory?

When I was little, my dad wore a suit to work and carried a briefcase. (This is funny if you knew him in his tattoed, shaved head, Harley-riding days!) When he got home from work, my mom and I would sometimes greet him at the door with a basket, and I would yell, “mater-checking time”!

We grew cherry tomatoes in the backyard and we would check regularly to see if there were new ones to be picked. We’d wait for Dad to get home so we could all check them together.

And sometimes I would mess with the spinning-number locks on his briefcase and it would make him mad, because he wouldn’t bother locking it, so he’d have to put the code in again and again. 😉

And I would sit on my dad’s lap and watch football and WWF wrestling. (Steelers and Hulk Hogan, duh.)

But, the best part was mater-checking time!
