Bill and I went to the Indiana University of Scouting yesterday. I noticed something...it's not too different from a Star Trec convention. Some people really get into it! They are be-decked with patches, pins, and medals, so much so that I didn't quite know where to look. I had no problem knowing where not to look when I went to one class where a teacher decided to wear his olive green shorts he must have bought 20 years ago when they probably fit and I couldn't help but wonder what magical thread boy scout shirts have their buttons sewn on with and how I might be in mortal danger if one decided to pop! But on the plus side I can now do a Finish Eye, tie a masthead knot, do a small splice, and eye splice, and an end splice, I can tie a Tom Foolery, and lash just about anything to anything!
The 'crud' has been making it's tour around our home. Eve and I were the only ones unscathed. Well, now it's only Eve, I came down hard yesterday... during the scout university. Usually I can kick it quick.. I hope it's the same this time, I'm being well taken care of.
I put my grad school application in, I don't feel very positive about it. I found out that they automatically except all the undergrads from BSU with a 3.0 or above. Last year that meant they took in 5 more students. I did all I could possibly do, now it's in the Lord's hands. I find out mid March.
