Well the banana didn't work. I don't look any younger however I don't look any older either. I wonder what my son and his men had for supper tonight, if they had the ready to eat military meals or if they were able to eat in the base mess hall. My brother-in-law who was in the air-force sent us some ready to eat meals in brown heavy vinyl packages. I haven't been brave enough to try any of them to see what they would be like. He said they actually are not too bad and resemble the dehydrated meals that can be purchased in the backpacking supply retailers. Next time I talk to David I will have to ask him what he thinks of the ready to eat meals.
