Friday Five (backdated... because I had to play!!!)

what are the five things you simply must have when you are away from home? And why? Any history or goofy things, or stories?
I thought this was absolutely apropo (or however you spell that) because I was just ON vacation! So... here goes!

1. My Phone & Charger

I inevitably always forget my phone charger... and then my phone dies. Luckily, I remembered this time, and didn't miss any important phone calls!!! PLUS - since I got facebook mobile - i got all of my birthday wishes posts right on my phone - the whole drive home!!! It was fantastic!

2. My Keeper!

Ladies... if you don't know about the keeper - you should! It is a woman's best friend. Never again will you or your significant other have to make midnight runs to the store for tampons or pads. Never again will you shell out tons of money for overpriced products. Never again will you clog up dumps with all that waste... It is simple, easy, affordable, and the absolute most wonderful thing you can have when you are out in the backwoods of northern wisconsin... or traveling across Europe. any questions - feel free to ask me about it!!!!!

3. A Guide to Prayer for All God's People

(see the next post for more details)

4. My Camera
a must have for all of those amazing pictures and video clips to remember it all by. What I love about this particular camera is that it is small (about the size of a deck of cards), it takes pretty good pictures, but that it also has a 2g memory card! And I like the fact I can take short video clips on the same camera that I'm shooting pictures with - it's always there when I need it... like to capture my neice singing "who stole the cookie from the cookie jar" for 20 minutes straight...

5. A Deck of Cards

My family (well, both mine and my husband's) LOVE to play cards. Pinochle, Cribbage, Hearts, 500, Garbage, Golf, Mao, Crap on Your Neighbor... you name it, we probably play it. All time favorites of mine are pinochle and cribbage. The image included here is the double run with double pinochle that my brother-in-law recently got that helped us to win the game!
