Most Honoured Moment

Just out of curiosity - what is your most honoured moment (apart from being present at childrens birth etc)

A few years ago I was honoured to be allowed to stay locked in a room with a collegue and a master jeweller who was cleaning the Scottish Crown Jewels.
I was allowed to pick up and handle these items and have details pointed out which are not generally known.
The sword (which was broken in 3 for concealment and subsequently repaired) is extremely delicate and wobbled and bent very worryingly. Afterwards we were told that if it broke there was not enough metal left due to cleaning and its original delicacy it could no be repaired ..... gulp!

Mine was having 2 sealions decide to swim with me when I was snorkelling off one of the Galapagos Islands a couple of years ago. It was an experience which will stay with me forever.

Two more moments were when my grandchildren told me for the first time that they loved me. Smile

I think that's why they suggest you write your will when other members of your family aren't present.

So far in my life, my wife saying 'yes' to my marriage proposal. Smile

She's the best thing that ever happened to me, and i feel honored to be allowed to be part of her life. Smile

This has really had me racking my brains - and I'm sure I am not alone! Wink

I guess I'm not the sort of chap who is likely to ever feel particularly 'honoured' about anything, frankly. And I'm probably not alone in that, either................

......... but I will keep thinking. Smile

Stroking a Grey Whale calf and when it opened it's mouth touching the baleen that is used to strain plankton.

These animals were hunted within living memory but it's mother just cruised around a short distance away and watched because they are now safe in the lagoon.

Is that a euphemism, or bragging...

"honoured" is an interesting choice of word - it implies that it's something that's bestowed on you rather than something you've achieved and are proud of...

I guess I was quite honoured when Leeds Council asked for a print of one of my Leeds shots to give as a gift to the visiting president of Iceland (before they went bust).
