Yes, I am finally on my way to Scotland to participate in
the Edinburgh Festival with my bagpipe band and hopefully
about 5,000 other pipes and drums. THAT is going to make
a wonderful lot of noise!! We've only been planning this
since last February. My wife and 3 of my children are going.
The 2 oldest boys have to stay home and work (boooo). And
"Number 2 Son" has to be at college the day before we get back.
I'll be setting my scouts-l to digest later today, because
I sure don't want to miss any of those pearls of wisdom that
And if you're thinking "Didn't I just see something from that guy
about Wood Badge?" You sure did. Would'nt you know that everything
happens at once. I had band practice Thursday night, got home, packed
for a Wood Badge Staff Develepment weekend. Went to work Friday morning
then went directly to camp. Got home late Sunday afternoon
and unpacked. Went to work this morning. Go home at noon to do final
errands, pack and leave tomorrow. Whew!!
And just to make all of you Wood Badgers a bit envious ...
I am going to be visiting THE Gilwell Park and am actually staying at the
Baden-Powell House in London. And, boy was I surprised when I called
them up and they told me that not only did they have a room, but it
actually was a family style room for the night I wanted!!
How 'bout that?
I'll see you (read you??) all when I get back on the 28th.
