1. Lightning Bolt
I'm an Electrical Engineer by education, and I nickname my youngest son the Lightning Kid
2. The Number '3'
Like the song says, it's a magic number. I enjoy triathlon, and trilogies.
3. Shark Fin
My eldest is nicknamed 'Shark Boy'. I have a fascination/fear of sharks.
4. A Duck
Ducks are at home on land, in the water and in the air. I've always admired that adaptability.
5. Triple Chevron for 'The Lucky Few'
I'm not into tatoos, but some people get a triple chevron inked to indicate membership in a club known as 'The Lucky Few' - people with relatives who have Down syndrome. The 3 (there's that number again) arrows or chevrons represent the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome possessed by those with DS.
6. A Globe
Because I like to travel
7. A Maple Leaf
8. A Black Eagle
I come from German extraction, and speak the language.
I love the water... sailing, rowing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, or splashing around.
Nothing political here... I like winter sports including cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, tobogganing, snow-shoeing and skating.
