Hiatus

Well, I'm off to camp this week. We leave at noon today: twenty-five Scouts, five leaders, a couple of part-timers. I'm hoping to take it easy, do some handicrafts, talk to boys (and just as important, listen).

Not gonna wear myself out trying to keep up with these guys. Just gonna play Old Grandaddy Scoutmaster. I will return Saturday, to catch up on all the news, LJ or otherwise. In the meantime,
The Lord bless your going out and your coming in,
from this time forth and for evermore.
