I hope you are having a great Friday and have some wonderful plans for the weekend. Normally, "Stephen" writes the Friday Funnies, but seeing as how today is National Girl Scout Day, and I was a girl scout, I thought I should write this one.
I am a bit tired as I write this. Today makes the second Friday in a row where I have had to venture out into the world and it looks like I will be doing it again next Friday and again in April. Nothing like putting off a full year of doctors visits for as long as possible then getting them all over in a month of Fridays. Man, there are a lot of "check ups" doctors want you to do once you get past 50!
I still need to find a dentist here too. I have yet to get setup with one since we moved here . . . 7 years ago. DO NOT tell my dentist back home in Kansas, he would call my mom on me (he is her dentist too) just to give me "what for" long distance.
But enough about being a grown up, today is National Girl Scout Day!
When my sister and I were young, our mother was a Girl Scout leader for my sisters troop and help out with my brownie troop (I believe, or it could have been later after I was girl scout too). I remember her letting me go to Girl Scout camp with them even though I was just a Still just a Brownie. Being the troop leader's daughter can have advantages. I remember feeling very superior as I watched my sister trick some of the older girls into going snipe hunting when I knew what was really going on.
I remember going door to door in my neighborhood, selling cookies to earn a trip to sleepaway camp. Dreaming of cookouts, camping, hiking, making S'mores on an open fire with friends, it was a good time! So if you can and you get the chance to buy a box and help a girl get to camp, please do. For some girls, this may be their only chance to experience something like that. You could help a girl build a priceless memory they will cherish for the rest of their lives. But . . . no pressure.
If you do decide to buy a boy or two and want to do something a bit more inventive than just eat the cookies straight out of the box like a normal person, check out these great recipes you could make with Girl Scout cookies.
