TODAY IS MY SISTER’S BIRTHDAY……. SHE LIVES IN SEATTLE, WASHINGTON AND HAS SUFFERED FOR YEARS WITH MS….. I ACTUALLY STARTED WRITING “NORTH OF 57 PONDERINGS” FOR HER…..

BONNIE  HAS ALWAYS BEEN A “CANADIANA BUFF”…… SO……  I THOUGHT IT WOULD BA GREAT WAY TO COMMUNICATE WILL HER EVERYDAY……

IT AMAZES ME THAT MY SILLY PONDERING IS NOW READ AROUND THE WORLD BY 1000’S OF PEOPLE EVERYDAY…..

YESTERDAY,  I DID STATE THAT I WOULD LIST THE CONTENTS OF A “NORTH OF 57” EMERGENCY VEHICLE KIT…… HERE IT IS…..

  • SHOVEL
  • BAG OF SAND
  • BAG OF ICE MELT (OR SALT)
  • EMERGENCY FLARES
  • HEAVY  BLANKET
  • EXTRA GLOVES
  • BOOTS
  • CANDLES TO PROVIDE A LITTLE HEAT
  • MATCHES OR RELIABLE LIGHTER
  • FLASHLIGHT
  • CELL PHONE
  • FIRST AID KIT
  • FOOD OR ENERGY BARS
  • WE ALSO INCLUDE A BIBLE

EVERYONE IS WARNED THAT IF YOU DO FIND YOURSELF STUCK IN A DITCH OR THE VEHICLE THAT YOU ARE IN STALES AND CAN’T BE RESTARTED…… NEVER.  NEVER,  NEVER,  LEAVE THE VEHICLE….. WALKING FOR HELP MORE OFTEN THAN NOT LEADS TO FREEZING TO DEATH…… THE SAFEST PLACE TO BE IS TO WAIT  INSIDE THE PROTECTION OF THE VEHICLE…… NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES…….

IT’S -10 WITH THE WIND CHILL ACTOR……. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……..
