humor: oct 06 -- LETTER FROM SCOUT CAMP

                              Nick's G-Rated Humor List


Dear Mom and Dad,

Our scoutmaster told us all write to our parents in case you saw the flood
on TV and worried.  We are OK.  Only 1 of our tents and 2 sleeping bags got
washed away.  Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the
mountain looking for Chad when it happened.

Oh yes, please call Chad's mother and tell her he is OK.  He can't write
because of the cast.  I got to ride in one of the search & rescue jeeps.
It was neat.  We never would have found him in the dark if it hadn't been
for the lightning.  Scoutmaster Walt got mad at Chad for going on a hike
alone without telling anyone.  Chad said he did tell him, but it was during
the fire so he probably didn't hear him.

Did you know that if you put gas on a fire, the gas can will blow up?  The
wet wood still didn't burn, but one of our tents did.  Also some of our
clothes.  John is going to look weird until his hair grows back.

We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Walt gets the car fixed.  It
wasn't his fault about the wreck. The brakes worked OK when we left.
Scoutmaster Walt said that a car that old you have to expect something to
break down; that's probably why he can't get insurance on it. We think it's
a neat car. He doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if it's hot, sometimes
he lets us ride on the fenders.

It gets pretty hot with 10 people in a car.  He let us take turns riding in
the trailer until the highway patrolman stopped and talked to us.
Scoutmaster Walt is a neat guy.  Don't worry, he is a good driver.  In
fact, he is teaching Terry how to drive.  But he only lets him drive on the
mountain roads where there isn't any traffic.  All we ever see up there are
logging trucks.

This morning all of the guys were diving off the rocks and swimming out in
the lake.  Scoutmaster Walt wouldn't let me because I can't swim and Chad
was afraid he would sink because of his cast, so he let us take the canoe
across the lake.  It was great.  You can still see some of the trees under
the water from the flood.

Scoutmaster Walt isn't crabby like some scoutmasters.  He didn't even get
mad about the life jackets. He has to spend a lot of time working on the
car so we are trying not to cause him any trouble. Guess what?  We have all
passed our first aid merit badges.  When Dave dove in  the lake and cut his
arm, we got to see how a tourniquet works.

Also Wade and I threw up, but scoutmaster Walt said it probably was just
food poisoning from the leftover chicken, he said they got sick that way
with the food they ate in prison.  I'm so glad he got out and became our
scoutmaster.  He said he sure figured out how to get things done better
while he was doing his time.

I have to go now.  We are going into town to mail our letters and buy
bullets.  Don't worry about anything.  We are fine.


P/S   How long has it been since I had a tetanus shot?
