Ping the list, please.
How many active Scouts or Scouters do we have here?
How many former Scouts or Scouters (quite a few, I bet)?
Happy birthday to the organization that meant more to my life than any other.
(from the home of troop #1)
Where are my cookies?
As the Girl Scouts drift further and further towards politically correctness and amorality, the BSA continues to hold true to its founding ideals, despite the torrent of contempt and hatred spewed upon it from the American Left.
God bless Lord Robert Baden-Powell and William D. Boyce.
Happy Birthday BSA!
(Former Life, with enough time and badges for eagle but.... things happen)
And I just found a bunch of my old Camp & Retreat patches! :-)
So, is the ACLU sending their best wishes?
My son, 18, is an Eagle Scout. I just retired as Scoutmaster after 5 years. We graduated 15 Eagle Scouts, all hardworking young men, in a year and a half.
First Boy Scout troop west of the Mississippi, as I understand it. In that little town.... who'da thunk?
Almost as old as Helen Thomas.
Thanks, RonF, for the reminder.
Happy birthday, BSA! My wishes for many, many more!
Scouting was a significant positive influence in my youth.
Serving as an adult leader was an honor and also great fun.
Participating in merit badge pow-wows is a blast.
Cool! We have our Blue and Gold banquet tonight. My son is a Webelo.
I just took a moment out from making cheddar and chili cornbread muffins for the event. :)
Pelosi is selected by her Partisan Peers for the Speaker's Chair. If she is no longer the Speaker, someone else is selected, no loss to the Country. When Spiro Agnew resigned, the Speaker did not move up to fill the seat, President Nixon and he alone selected Gerald Ford to fill the Vice President's position.The Speaker is in the second position only for the horrible occasion that both the President and Vice President are lost at the same time.
Scouts have a right to be proud. And the parents of Scouts should be saluted for their support as well.
Well done, lads. Well done.
My son is a Bear. My wife a Den leader and I'm the sound effects man on the Pinewood Derby!
Former Boy Scout TTTC sez:
Happy Birthday, BSA.
New Cubmaster here. Son is a Wolf Scout and loves it.
Blue and Gold this Saturday. Still having fun.
