but she doesn't have a lot to say.
-- John Lennon, "Her Majesty"
When Venturing Crew 119 returned from their ten-miler up at Cataract, we brought a friend back with us. I didn't think anybody would notice her, quietly standing there in a currently-unused Sunday School room, but she began turning heads right away. If you've got it, you've got it.
There's just no telling what you'll come across when you travel by foot. Somebody had dumped this solid wooden mannequin along a back road on the far side of Mill Creek. She was just too cool to leave to molder in the muck, so after we finished hiking, we went back for her.
She now sports a Philmont t-shirt and a brand-new patch vest. The patch for our Crew's first camporee, the "Survivor" Camporee at Spring Mill last month, is on her vest. We think she makes a fine addition to the Crew.
But . . . we need help naming her. So, we're taking suggestions, and we'll eventually maybe have a contest.
