Have you thought about what you want to say for your final Scoutmaster's

What's the rush? There are still 13 full months before we reach the end
of the 20th century.
How do I figure that? It's simple. Our current calendar started with the
year 1 and a century consists of 100 years. Therefore, the first century
went from 1 to 100, the second century from 101 to 200, etc. etc. But since
everybody seems to want to celebrate this year I'll go them one better. I'll
join their party this year and then I'll have my own, correct, celebration
next year; I get two parties to their one. Whoopee!
