Well, I've just spent a tedious hour or so working up a Treasurer's Report for the Board of Directors of NAUMS (National Association of United Methodist Scouters). It's not that we handle a great deal of money, it's just that it has to be chased into and out of all kinds of strange, subdivided accounts. (I'm no stranger to this; as one who constantly handles youth trip money, church donations that get handed to me, vouchered mileage, and Cub Pack/Venture Crew money, I tell people I am a Master of Low Finance.)

I took this job somewhat against my better judgment. But as the cowboy said when asked why he took off all his clothes and jumped into the cactus patch, "It seemed like a good idea at the time."

The Board meets this Saturday and Sunday in Nashville, Tennessee. that_guy_zach will be minding the store on Sunday morning in my absence.
