Resolutions Revisited


You’ve heard of Christmas in July. Well, how about New Year’s? July 1 is half way through the year so I thought it was a perfect time to revisit my New Year’s Resolutions (plus there are fireworks just like January) and see how I am doing.

Quick to Complain


When we got our tent assignments at Philmont Scout Camp, I was quick to complain. Our tents were on the very end of the tent city and our doors opened to the parking lot.

Since it was a child’s funeral and there would be lots of kids around, I wanted to make sure the funeral was kid friendly. The collective family brain went to work.
