Well, Just Slap My Face

You'll never believe what happened....go ahead, try.

My mother-in-law asked Sweet Wife to ask me for a link to a company that sells emergency preps, survival food. MIL stated she was worried about the condition of the world.

Well slap me silly....

Seven years I've tried to get my wife's family on board. Seven years. Goes to show even the elderly are able to learn new tricks.

Bless her.

  3. A number of people have mentioned that more and more individuals are starting to at least take some basic steps in order to provide for their own welfare if things go sour. To be honest, anyone who keeps up with current events and has any sense would be forced to go that route. As for the people who don't see any further than the edge of their lawn, not much can be done about them.

  4. That is wonderful! Gives me hope that most of my family will wake up. So far, their plan is to come to my house because I have the food. Sigh.

  5. My mom, now 83, still cans veggies from her garden. Had a pretty good supply of store-bought canned goods last time I was there, too.

  6. What do you mean, "even the elderly"? Where I come from, us old folks grew up putting food by for hard times. Bet we could teach you a few new tricks, young 'un.

  8. Which reminds me, have been thinking of buying some more dried stuff recently. I prolly have at minimum a month's very boring canned but canned needs cycled out so I've slowly added to dried.

  9. My sweet little wife thinks I'm kind of silly for making sure we have enough "stuff" to weather out a catastrophe, but as long as it doesn't impact our budget (and I make sure it doesn't) she's cool with it.

    After all, we live in "Earthquake Country" out here, and people really should have some preps.

    I just avoid telling her I'm preparing for a man-made "earthquake"!
