Today marks the anniversary of my 48th trip around the sun–woohoo! Now I can really say that I am “pushing fifty”. LOL
Thanks to my dear friend THOR who was the first person to wish me happy birthday….he sent me a singing birthday card to my phone and I listened to it first thing this morning when I woke up; bright-eyed-and-bushy-tailed at 3:13am!
Yesterday while my son Thomas and I were out running errands, he asked me what I want for my birthday and I told him the next three Harry Potter books. I am half-way through book #3. “I thought you wanted a Bear Griylls knife for your bug-out-bag.?”
“Mom. Pink is not going help you when you’re out in the wilderness. You need a Bear Grylls knife. It can hack through trees and has a flint on the bottom of the handle/shaft. Bear Grylls says that a good knife is your number one survival tool.”
“Okay Thomas, whatever you think is best. Maybe I can wear it on my hip when I’m out walking or bicycling around, then no scary guys will mess with me, right?”
“That’s fine then, okay, get me a Bear Grylls knife for my bug-out-bag. Maybe having the knife will get me motivated to start collecting the other things I need to put in it?”
