April Anysoldier

I've slacked on Anysoldier for the last couple of months, but I did finally get a package out a couple of weeks ago.  Basically I just stuck everything in there that I'd purchased for the last 3 months, plus some magazines and playing cards that a friend had given me to send out there.  It was a pretty random assortment of valentine and Easter candy and personal hygiene items.

Today I saw that the guy I sent them to, SPC Farley R. Batista, has given me a ty note on the website.  You can see it by going to the "where to send" section of the website and clicking on his name. 

I don't send stuff for the thank you notes, but it's always nice to know it has arrived.  And they do give me the warm fuzzies.  What a great way to start the morning!

Stamp Out Hunger

As a reminder, if you live in the United States, Saturday May 8th, the USPS collects non-perishable food items from mailboxes to deliver to area food banks.  I generally use this as on opportunity to purge canned foods that I bought but am never going to use (i.e., if I bought it last year or it is set to expire in the next six months, it goes).   It's kind of embarrassing how much stuff that turns out to be.  I bought the tuna fish (on sale for 59 cents each) and one of the 28 oz bags of rice ($1.29), but everything else comes from my pantry.
