Big an many Bye-bye bags

Sum of yu know this, but my Daddy is in the Idunno National Guard. That means he has to pack up bye-bye bags once a month or so to go do his drill near the Boy See city. He's been to the Eye Rack place twice.
 Well, he's been packin up more an bigger bye-bye bags. It's time fur the Annual Trainin thingy that he does, well, once a year.
He left this mornin at way dark o'clock.

I wuz wunnerin 'bout what he eats while he's out practicin the soldier skills.
We had a lil show an tell deal.

Lemme show yu.
He has a Lot of these while he's "on the range" an he's on the range fur nearly 3 weeks.

MRE? Whut the heck is in there?


We have a whole box o' these brown plastic bags in our basement. An the whole family has at least one in their cars, fur 'mergency porpoises.

Let's see whut's in this bag. There's 'posed to be chicken with noodles an veggies!

Yep, it sez Chicken an Veggies all right

Whut's that?
Oh! So that's whut nut raisin mix with pan coated chocolate disks looks like.
Mmmm! Peanut Butter! I sure wanted to wrap my fuzzy lips round this lil package!
They tol' me there's a piece o' bread in there!
I guess they're not 'lowed to call it Kool Aid
Yipes! Hot soss! Mommy sed they used to put in a cute lil bottle of Tabasco.
This here is the heater to heat up yur main corse. Yu put sum water in there an sum kim-ee-culs heat up the food bag yu put in there too. Yu gotta prop it up slant-wise on a rock or sumfin. Serious. The 'structions say that.

There's a packet with matches, sugar, salt, a handy wipee, sum ol' fashion chicklet gum. Lots of plastic to throw away. An' by the way, the rug there? Daddy sended it frum the Eye Rack place on his 1st time there.

All I got wuz the toilet paper!

Daddy sez the soldiers real quick learn which bags are "good" an which are kinda meh.

I will sure miss my Daddy since I am his grrl. But he tol' me to mind Mommy while he's gone.
Sure thing Daddy.

BOL!

Have yu furs ever seen these MRE thingys? Have yu ever tasted any of it?

  1. We haven't tasted MREs but our daddy certainly has! Mom has sampled some things, just to try them. She has one of those tiny bottles of Tobasco sauce - and an emptied bottle filled with sand that Dad brought back from Iraq. I think your rug is a lot nicer. Ha roo roo roo!!!
    All the best to your dad. Safety first!
    Cammie!

  4. My Momma ate those for Thanksgiving dinner one year cos they did not have a car to get to the commissary in another country cos hers had just got there. She said some fings were good and some fings were not. My big sister Kylei's husband is in the National Guard also attached to the 3rd Marines, twice in Iraq. We are very proud of him and very thankful he made it home safely, some in his platoon did not. Sigh. We are proud of your Daddy also. Momma says she remembers those two week trainings well, that is when she would get her projects done ....lol.....

  9. Crikey Zoe ... I've never seen any of that stuff. Looks ok but I'd rather have me a live chook or something!! Your Daddy must be very brave. Did he meet any Aussie soldiers when he was in that Eye Rack place?? That's a very beautiful rug he sent home. Have you or Tux managed to pee or throw up on it? I threw up on our living room rug .... big time!!

  14. Furst:
    Thanks so much to your Daddy!
    Safe travels!

    We had some of those MRE's here once...well, it was befur my time, BOL!
    The PB sounds delish!

    We have a ANG Base here in Battle Creek, too. Lots of activity there sometimes.
    We *used* to have the A10's here, and they sure were a noisy lot. They have moved away, but fur now the base is still open, something about drones being managed from here.

    Purdy carpet indeed! Is it a magic one??


    Woofs!

    1. Oh! Drones! That'd be fun to fly one of those. If we only had thumbs!

      The only magic the carpet has is to keep Tux frum diggin his claws into the uther carpet an makin it look bad.

  15. Momma thinks that carpet is bee-you-ti-ful! We never ate foods from a brown bag like that, but Momma says Pap Pap probably has when he was in the army 10083277 years ago. Momma says they probably didn't look like that, though. Did you get to taste anything?
