Did my quota of Cheerful Service

Just got back from a very early run to the Indy airport. I've been assisting this week (tired or not) with hauling passengers from Indy to IU. These are people (staff mostly until today) coming in for the big Order of the Arrow National Leadership Seminar.

The OA is styled "The Brotherhood of Cheerful Service." Our lodge is the local connection for this dealie, and National was in a crunch, so they cried out to us, and our leaders gave out a yell for whoever could get off or rearrange their work on short notice -- and that was me and a few other guys. I drove to Indianapolis and back once on Wednesday, twice on Thursday, once yesterday, and once this morning.

Glad I did it, and glad it's done with.
