Vince and I were sitting here at lunch and we were talking about our preparedness efforts. Fairly often we go over our list of supplies and yes, I know most of you think we’re nuts but we were talking and had this conversation:
Me: We’re ok on food. I keep up with that.
Vince: We’re ok on water with the solar well.
Me: I keep plenty of heirloom seeds so we could grow the garden but we might need to stock up a bit more on some of the things I use – fish emulsion, Sevin dust occasionally.
Vince: I’ve been using a lot of hydrogen peroxide and antibiotic ointments with all the cuts and scrapes I get so I should buy more of that.
Me: What concerns me is .. what would you do if we had no power for an extended period. I can knit or do handwork. But you . . there’s only so much time you can spend in the recliner!
Vince: I’d probably get on Match.com . . or something like that!
On second thought . . all that food I have stashed away . . that’s just for me. What are you, Vince, planning on doing if ever there’s a food shortage? 🙂
