Mr. Dave Got A Donation! Purchased Meat. In Cans.
I put the PayPal "Bacon Fund" donation thing on the sidebar of this blog as kind of a goof. Maybe passing fancies of some benevolent and magnificently wealthy bacon lover dropping a couple million in there briefly danced across my mind, but mostly I just thought having a "Bacon Fund" donation box was funny. To my great surprise I just received a PayPal email saying that someone had deposited 25 bucks! It was a most gracious woman named Gretchen out of southern, AZ. This was very generous.
I was thinking of what do with this money, I wouldn't feel right spending it on myself (it is a donation). So I decided to spend it on something of mutual interest to myself and Gretchen. She mentioned in her message that she is a pseudo-survivalist like myself, and enjoyed my Canned Butter and Cheese post (also see Backpacker's Pantry Chana Masala, Vegetarian MRE, and Powdered Peanut Butter, and Heater Meal). I had my eye on the Pleasant Hill Grain canned meat line. The 5 meat (beef chunks, ground beef, pork chunks, chicken, and turkey) sampler pack happened to be almost exactly 25 bucks (sans shipping) so I ordered it. When it comes I shall give it a review and see if it is fit to take to my fortified anti-zombie lair in the hills and the post shall be dedicated to my benefactor (Gretchen).
Thanks again Gretchen, you rule!
