At Baltimore Area Council Cub Scout Camp (Camp Oest at Broadcreek) one
year, the crafts leader had a craft-stick project that all the adults were
required to work on while the boys did their own projects. It worked out
well for keeping us out of the boys' way <g>. I will take your suggestion
to make my own chair, both for something to do and to show the guys what a
mom can do.

I'll be able to laugh if it's not the cooking fire. That's what scares
me...that my being fed depends on how well the boys learn to cook. Are we
allowed to hide snacks in our pockets? ;-) Too bad I have one of the new
style slacks without cargo pockets.
