Musings

  • Only mad dogs and Cub Scouts go out in the noon day sun.
  • It’s amazing how quickly a ten year old boy’s minor scrape escalates to “I think I’m going to die!” when a teenage girl asks him if he’s OK.
  • Apparently, to ten year old boys, a couple of raccoons checking the trash can at 1 in the morning sounds like a herd of ravenous bears.
  • I’d like to thank Irish Woman for the new cot, because I’m officially too bloody old to sleep on the ground if there’s any other option.
  • I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again:  If you give a Cub / Boy Scout a pack, he will acquire enough gadgets to fill it.
  • Boys who spent half the night yelling and hooting at each other had to be convinced to shout commands during a flag ceremony.

    When we aged out of sleeping on the floor at our farm friend’s house, cots were the answer.
    I also seem to have aged out of having enough strength to put the second stretcher on the cot without using a lever.
    We also added self inflating pads.
    That is one nice looking cot!

    • I liked it. Easy to set up and take down. Comfortable in width and length. Tall enough to store stuff underneath.

    It’s called ‘continuation of the species’

    “If you give a Cub / Boy Scout a pack, he will acquire enough gadgets to fill it.”

    Tell me that isn’t true of grown men too.
