My son is deployed - F/A 18C pilot. I've been sending the usual stuff, snacks, pillows, books. Can you 'salty' guys give me some ideas about things I can include in the weekly box?
That's a big hit over here too. For some reason, it's nice to see TV with american commercials. A new DVD never hurts. A bunch of food (beef jerky, trail mix, cookies, etc), good coffee is he's a coffee drinker. I'm shore based so I have a few more amenities, but I got Mrs. Pags to send me some pesto since it's hard to find over here. Newest magazines are always good, maybe some crossword/soduku. Basically the same kind of stuff you'd give to a 10yr old to kepe them busy in the back of the car on a long road trip.My wife used to DVR my favorite shows on the DVR and then burn them to DVD to send me. Of course we only got mail once or twice a patrol...oh well...
I'm not sure though...current TV on the carrier?
Now you're talking turkey.... My best to both of you.I'm flipping through the channels this AM and Earthquake, a really bad "B" movie, is on right now and I'm wishing I could have dv-r'd it. It's Charlton Heston, Lorne Greene, Victoria Principal, Richard Roundtree and Ava Gardner at their worst!
My grandmother once sent me a box of chicken and dumplings mix. The box had gotten a small hole in it, so the flour was starting to come out. Yes the postal folks were a bit nervous and made me come in to open it up. Good times, good times.One clerk took a giant step back I told them a box I was sending had Gold Bond powder in it, they said they get a little nervous when they see "white powder".
