Default 40 year old survival kit

I need help filling a can for a 40 year old survival kit. Any suggestions?

I know there was a thread on what to put in paint cans but cannot find it. If anyone has the link please let me know.

I am thinking chocolate, and a pen and paper to write everything down that you always forget!

When I turned 30, my boyfriend (at the time) gave me a Viagra bottle filled with blue M&Ms, a single Depends diaper (yeah, loved that one! - especially since I opened it up at work), and hairdye.

Ben-Gay, Geritol or some other senior vitamins, and then something nice that you know they love.

My Dh turns the big 40 this year this is a great idea for him (he's a practical joker himself and loves this kind of stuff)! He is already having a hard time dealing with going "over the hill". Guess this will make him feel even better. LOL Hope you don't mind if a CASE this idea!

Did one a couple years ago. Put Ben Gay, Prep H, Aspercreme, reading glasses, hearing aid batteries, support socks, folding cane, Mon-Sun pill box, hair dye, Tylenol PM, can of prunes, denture creme - can't think what else right now - but those come to mind.

Here is a good idea:
OK, I can not find the link! You need to get a black cotton bra and white iron-on letters...on the left cup iron on "We've fallen" and on the right cup iron on "and we can't get up!" Make sense?
and get her a cane and attach a bike horn.
THEN give her something really nice that you know she will love! Maybe some cool new stamps or pattern papers wink, wink.
Inky Hugs.
Risa

Oh, don't forget the magnifing bifocal glasses from the dollar store. Perfect for a can! If you get her a cane and attach a bike horn, you will have to hang the can on it!

OOOPSSss! We read from right to left in America DUH!
Reverse the cups!
Right should say:
"we've fallen"
and Left should say:
"and we can't get up!"

OK, that is enough of that!

boost or ensure...
the new fossil fuel!
ha!
I had a lot of 'fossils'
(ancient rude geriatic crusty crotchety...ykwim!)
come into the restaurant I worked at,
they would order the special, share it 4 ways, bring their own canned drinks and fill up on coffee refils!
hence I called the drinks their fossil fuel.

cds that look like vinyl records...they make me laugh!

paper money
for us, that would be from before coins replaced the $1 or $2 bills
or silver dollars or 50cent pieces
from when they used to be a big deal , in the olden days...
(I used to get silver dollars for christmas, now if my ds, 4 doen't get a new dvd, retail value $25, he notices!LOL!
we get them from the library, but still...he had asked santa nicely!)

A magic mirror (a child's picture glued on top of the glass) so that she can remain forever young.
