Thursday update, August 4
Gerald plans to go camping the weekend after next with his troop.
Carol Anne and I might be busy with the opening of the Heron Lake marina. We now have a definite quote for marina insurance for the club; if we accept it and get a binder and policy then the marina could be open very soon. On the other hand, that Saturday, in the middle of the campout, is the court of honor, and Gerald will have earned some badges. It may be another busy weekend.
This weekend may feature marina work, running up probably to Pagosa Springs for heavy wall blocks, then a Shroyer Center ice cream social, all on Saturday. Plan to make cabin mortgage payment tomorrow, bring up firewood and maybe beer for Carol Anne. Probably will leave chainsaw behind; could use a break.
I volunteered to understudy the troop "popcorn kernel". That was very much a lesser evil since Gerald's troop is also looking for a new Scoutmaster. Monday Aug. 29 is the popcorn kickoff. Gerald will also be selling wreaths/poinsettias for AYO, luminarias for the Scout troop, and maybe stuff for school orchestra. Gerald needs to work on swimming for his Scouts so he can finish his last 1st class requirement; he also got elected assistant senior patrol leader tonight.
Not a single direct word or call from or sighting of Philee or Jerry. I was hoping to reach Jerry so I could return a couple of movie props to their owners. The hotelsmobile is here, but ne bratri Seeger. Kdo Philee? Kdo Jerry? Hmmm, are they still in the film editing suite or did the aliens get them?
Gerald had a good Hummingbird experience with the youth orchestra and felt well prepared. The only big downside was the food poisoning/food bug that hit maybe half of the orchestra on Tuesday night; for some members it was serious enough to make them miss some rehearsals.
