Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
So, been running around alllll over Hells Half Acre today… Gretchen ‘wanted to spend some “quality time” together’ which meant since she had a gig in Orlando, I was the chauffeur.
On my Birfday itself (today’s the ackchooal day)
On a Friday Afternoon
Back and forth on I-4
Black Friday no less.
3 hours each way due to volume of traffic and “stupid”
So her and Sapper have decided to take me out on their dime to a Chiaroscuro Brazilian Steakhouse. OMG!! Great food! Usually out of my league. Kind of place MomUnit usually likes to spring on me…
But anyways… I did get a giftie in the mail today from Reader ER out of Colorado (MANY MANY Thanks E!!!!):
A “Block One” (1981-1983) MRE Menu #9 Chicken ala King.
Better known as Chicken ala Thing…
It has Accessory Packet ‘A’ which means it’s got the basics… no candy or anything like hot sauce either. A basic-basic MRE. Don’t know if I’ll open it, or save it as it -is- a bit of a collectors item… Not many Brown Wrapper Block Ones are out there… unless they’re in a toxic waste dump that is…
That’s a screen shot from some Aussie dude who actually opened and tried to eat it… only thing that was still edible was of all things, the Fruitcake, which as I recall was not edible even when it was still fresh and new…
So instead of eating/not eating that, I’ll get back with you maybe later after some good food.
