Cures Poison Ivy and ???

Curiosities while shopping, part 729. This product claims to cure poison ivy. That was not the problem my shopping was seeking to address, but I have to candidly admit I was impressed. I've never seen a product that could also, in addition to the poison ivy, cure a big nose and jug ears. All this in only two days. Amazing.

humorous medical claims

I did start shopping for the hike today, and have (almost) filled the dehydrator for its first round. I only managed to come up with 8 trays (instead of 9) full that will take all night to dry. (from the bottom up-- melon, pineapple, peaches, oranges, grapefruit, yogurt, minneolas, olives, jam) That's fine. I'm not in any panic time-wise.

dehydrator full of food

Here are my cold meals for the hike. These will also each be served twice. It gets expensive to buy supplies when you only use part of them. Of course, I'll eventually use the rest of the food, but given all the trouble we have with grain moths and mice I'd just as soon use it up sooner.

In other news: I worked half day at Shagway, wrote a chapter in DMS Mistletoe, did errands and shopping. I didn't feel well part of the day and am kinda ache-y tonight. Bed early maybe.
