I'm a Prepper, he's a Prepper,
She's a Prepper, we're a Prepper,
Wouldn't you like to be a Prepper, too?
(parody of the famous Dr. Pepper jingle)
Finally! A name for my inborn personality disorder!
Since early childhood when we evacuated for hurricanes I packed bedding, food, blankets, lawn chairs and candles while my parents eventually toted a fifth of whiskey and Pierre the Poodle to our wood paneled station wagon.
I'm a PREPPER!I realize more and more that I am no longer a "fringe" personality but becoming "mainstream" as the video below mentions when I meet more and more people who have chickens in the city, gardens in their back yard, and new licenses to carry concealed. (you know who you are)
He's a Prepper!
I admire my neighbor Brasilia's solar shower and lugable loo.
She's a Prepper!I have always seen things differently from most folk who think the government will help in times of crisis. I thought it was the Vietnam Generation I was born into deeply ingrained in my psyche but hurricanes Andrew and Katrina dispelled that myth. My buddy Myrtle lost it all in Katrina as did countless others. It was a bitter lesson learned when the government was no help whatsoever. Instead, her relief came from fellow human beings who practice humanity like my daughter The Artist. She and others helped Myrtle and her elderly husband by supplying the basics of survival.
We're a Prepper!

And when you've seen it I have one question for you after you pull your head out of the sand...
Wouldn't you like to be a Prepper , too?
