This was a tough call this year. Borepatch is new at this, and like me, has lost a parent in the last few years. Old NFO, another big player in the game, goes a long ways back with me--the man actually survived a flight as a 30-something Naval Officer in the back of a Sherpa that I was Pilot in Command of when he was headed back to base. That's when we first met and we've somehow crossed paths personally or professionally ever since. And Jay G. is well, Jay G., someone I have been able to count on for years, both in the blogosphere and in real life. So many others of you, old and new friends, part of this fundraiser. All I can say is thank you for donating to Team Borepatch or YOUR favorite team. We're all in this together.
Barkley says - this ball just doesn't throw itself you know.
For tonight - since I don't have a kilt to store anything - What's in your tactical purse/man satchel? Not your range bag, but what you carry to work or to the store:
Mine is as follows as dumped out on the bed when I got home.
Jameson wallet (from the factory gift store).
Squirrel badge (OK, that's not our logo, but I can't show that)
tactical lip gloss from Bee Naturals
Tanka buffalo bar
a Scrabble letter with Barkley tooth marks on it (don't ask me WHY that is in there)
generic menthol rub
tinted sunscreen (Kabuka Theater Pale Shade)
ratty picture holder with pictures of my daughter growing up - (all I have of those years)
passport for work travel (if I carry it, they suddenly won't send me to some country with large spiders, that's my hope anyway)
extra digital cards for a camera
lots of pens and a highlighter
Thank you again, for those that have helped Kilted to Kick Cancer, and those of you who have helped a couple families in need this week that we are all still praying for.
