    If you and me were making you a care package; and it could be for fun or survival....however you would like it...what would we put in your care package? Now mind you, it can't be toooo big. No bigger than a Bananna box.

    Now already placed in this care package is your Bible, a note pad and pen, a blanket, a jug of water, and a flash light.

    Remember...your photo albums may take up all the room....and then, they may all not fit. This care package can be things you want, or things you have. Please specify.

    I am going to wait until at least 10 people post before I say mine. Because I am busy helping you pack yours. and I will need a small break then. ;)

    Always

    Sherrie, I've never heard of a banana box. I tried using my search engine and can't seem to find out why it's called that or how big it is.

    It seems to be a term that is used on the other side of the country more than here? Would you mind telling me how big it is?

    I would love to play.

    A banana box is a box that the grocer gets banana's in. Comes with a top box, that slides off. Probably 36 in. x 16 in.

    [​IMG] I was going to say Charmin too, but I thought the Fibercon was pushing it as far as too much information. [​IMG]

    After the soot fire (Jan 02) - there were several things I went looking for; (my wife looked for the cats - all there) - the condition of my computer (did not preach from Romans again until I had a new one); the camera equipment (it was all OK - the bags were just a little dirty); and two or three things to wear the next day or two.

    PS - we are still not back to normal - stuff is still packed in boxes - am beginning to think we'll never get back to normal. -- have learned that there is a lot of stuff we never use - and probably don't need - but will probably never part with til the Lord takes me out of here. :rolleyes:

    I'm so sorry to hear that Bro. Dan. I once knew someone who's car burned while he was in the process of moving. The biggest loss were all his children's school pictures and family albumns. Lost forever in the fire. I hope that you all get comfortable again. But I doubt that something like a fire, will ever make you get back to normal again.

    God Bless You,
    Charlotte


    Okay, what would I like in a care package?

    A laptop computer would be nice. I prefer Mac thank you.
    A bottle of wine
    a wine glass
    a nice pillow, down with a feather core would be preferrable.
    a portable CD player, Sony is the best.
    A dozen or so CD's, preferable blues, celtic and classical, although a CD by Reba MacIntyr and one by Martina MacBride would be fabulous too.
    A nice air matress with an automatic pump.
    and as many good books as you can fit in there.

    Well, you asked. This banana box is going to be pretty expensive. But wishes aren't incumbered by financial concerns are they?
