    We really appreciate those cukes. We ate one with the steaks, one went to Eagle river and I've got 2 held in reserve for tomorrows lunch.. it's amazing how much better a meal is when you have fresh produce (lettuce, cukes, etc) to include with it. I can make a meal with a nice fresh cuke and a bottle of ranch dressing...

    I tried it a few years ago, in a 35mm film case, (longer than a few years I guess)
