Captain's Blog... I am growing very tired. Yet, my mission must continue.

Captain's Blog... I am growing very tired. Yet, my mission must continue.

Wow! What a weekend. I’m not even going to pretend I can keep this one short.

Unfortunately the weekend began on a somber note with the passing of my daughter Carly’s pet hamster, Lenny. Although, Lenny wasn’t the most productive member of the household and, he DID live twice his expectancy but, didn’t live long enough for me to figure a way to harness his energy for heat and lighting purposes. He provided my little girl much happiness. And, for that, Lenny was deserving of the beautiful casket, ceremony and memorial in the front yard. We will Miss you Lenny.

Upon completion of my normal groundskeeper duties on Friday, I hurried with my son to pick up a friend and fellow scout member that was to stay with us throughout the weekend.
