Just a word to encourage knot tying skills.
My boss was putting up a canvass shelter for bedding plants (I work in a
flower shop) and I noticed he did not have anchors or rope. I told him that
thing was going to fly away in the first wind...it almost did in the breeze.
My son came by and saw the "tent" and told my boss to come get him when he
got the anchors and rope. (My son offered to provide the rope, too, but the
boss got some of his own.) The boss went right out to get anchors and rope,
my son returned promptly. To make a story shorter>>> The Boy Scout came by
and anchored that "tent" with the proper knots and the boss was so grateful,
he gave him $10. (It only took my son 15 minutes to do the work.) TRUE
