Teaching young Muslims to counter the message of radicals.
And thanks, Bro. Mike, for the link.
And thanks, Bro. Oral Roberts, for the fabulous praying hands.
I have been attending a sort of anti-terrorist camp this week. I am the program director of a Cub Scout day camp here in CT. I’ve taken 7~12 year old’s hiking, where we found a 4′ black rat snake, handed out snacks, sat with them for lunch, added ice to their water jugs, attended a mobile petting zoo, flung dog food from sling-shots, taught them how to spot poison ivy, got squirted with a fire hose, watched a K-9 dog sniff out drugs, saw a traveling reptile demonstration and answered numerous questions, mostly about port-o-potties and privacy.
I hope that they will one day remember Mr. Mario and would be tolerant of me when I am old and need my SSI.
Perhaps we should structure camp like a jobs fair. Hey, someone’s gotta pay for this massive Government debt. If I were them and found out how much of a burden we were causing to them and their families, I would blow old people up. We deserve it.
Mario, this is the sweetest and move lovable description I’ve ever heard of Cub Scout camp. Have you earned your Polar Bear badge? The night I earned mine, I was woefully uncomfortable and kind of hoped the badge came wrapped in a large sleeping bag for the next freezing camping trip.
This was a day camp. I just got home, will slap a few pork chops in the oven and veg out all night! I’m beat! I did the polar bear thingy years back. Burrr!
I worked this camp last year as staff and noticed that it could be done better as the boys (and the leaders) were not having a good time. A friend and I were asked to run it this year and we charged into the job like teenage boys on a six-pack. Instead of complaints, we received complements. All the staff agreed to return for next year and the parents have said that their children all want to return next year. I can’t wait.
At the last hour, we had a boy fall and break his arm, which was the only problem we had all week. My knee is the size of a small melon, but it was worth it. I almost forgot how precious these young boys can be.
If only they would listen…
You’re perfect in every significant way. When’s chili fest down in New Haven, by the way?
No, Mary Poppins is. I ain’t no Mary Poppins…
Awesome! I knew it was coming up, Mary Poppins.
