OT - Holiday present

Post by Bonnie Espenshad » Fri, 24 Dec 1999 04:00:00



If you have someone on your list that you just don't know what to give.
This year I made up a few Y2K survival kits.  Simply a brown paper bag
with this note attached:  "Enclosed is your Y2K survival kit.  Keep it
in a secret place so no raiders or wandering pillagers can find it!"
Then I placed these items inside the bag.  A candle and matches, a roll
of toilet paper and the most important item - a candy bar.  Also added
money on one occasion.  The kits have brought a few laughs.
Happy Holidays to all.  May you all enjoy a prosperous and pleasant New
Year.

Isn't some sort of ponding or koi magazine also required?

 Very good.  Beleive it or not, I did the same doggone thing.  A bit more in the bag for my wife.  She has to work NYE at the
hospital.  She also gets a flashlite, AM/FM radio, bottled water, one "MRE" (Meal Ready to Eat), towlettes, survival blanket,
water purification pills, pocket knife, etc.

Our local surpluser, Sgt. Bub's, sells MREs.
My DH and the boys have been known to take them hunting.
One day while they were packing up my then 9-yr-old asked DH, "Have we got the
Army Happy Meals?"

(Dec. 26, Boxing Day, they will be out, at 5:30am, in a duck blind. They are
still venturing forth  buying supplies and kit for this particular
adventure....)

Hi Derek,
If it were a pond person, he or she would not be hard to buy for.

p.s. I'll watch CNN anyway, if Guam is hit by Y2K, we may be also (we
have some U.S. made similar technology I hear)

HI Jan.
It's 8pm standard time Saturday (california) now and its 2pm standard
time Sunday in Guam so that means they are 18 hours ahead of us (gives
us enough time to run around in circles abit) :>D
A good site for time zones is http://www.isbister.com/worldtime/
Hope everyone had/has a good christmas and new years.

Plenty of time to fill the bathtubs (for toilet flushing) and all the
available (empty) milk jugs for people ingesting, hand & dish washing, etc.
Though paper plates might be a good thing to pick up this next week, save
water, save work. ;o) ~ jan
