Maricopans were asked the tough question: What was your favorite gift every received during the holidays?
“Being with my family; to me, that’s the best gift in the world. I don’t care about gifts, they don’t care about gifts, just being with family and having a nice dinner together; that’s our love.”
“My wife bought me a telescope for Christmas. I’m a retired science teacher, so it was especially right.”
“My stuffed horse named ‘Star.’ He’s been everywhere with me. My mom’s barrel horse was named Star and she was like our babysitter, so I relate her to my horse. She’s been to Vegas; I went to the National Finals Rodeo and I took her with me and she stayed with me in the hotel. She’s been to Illinois, Texas and New Mexico. She sleeps with me at night.”
“Probably the greatest Christmas gift was the birth announcement of my first granddaughter in 2005. Her name is Cecelia Alicia.”
“I’d have to say probably the set of Callaway golf clubs my wife got me last year for Christmas. I have got a lot of good use out of them, you can bet on that.”
