        The benefit of hubby being out of work for over a year is that at least we qualify for mooch status and free healthcare insurance (CHIP) for the kids. Problem is, he didn't sign us up because he doesn't want to be a mooch.

        It's not mooching if you paid your dues into the system and don't plan on staying on it. It's the people that have no sense of pride, and just want to take from it, that are the problem.

        Why is it I'm always making women cry ? (kidding.. mostly)
        Seriously though, no I don't play (not bagpipes anyway) but I'd always sort of wished I did. I do recall I bought a cheapo set back when I was in high school but never really figured out how to.. make them go.

        Of course that was long before there was an internet and youtube.
        I'm fairly certain it would not bode well for my romantic life were I to dare try again now... she REALLY hates them.
        That said, your daughter giving it a go is totally badass ! (Of course you get lots of badass points too for what hellish cacophonies you'll have to endure to let her be the badass she wants to be in this case)

        My Brother and both his boys are very involved with Scouting. I asked my brother about the troubles the organization is having. He tells me that his local chapter is fiscally and organizationally able to split off and do their own thing if necessary.

        I loved outside winter camping w/my son during his scout years. We did 5 Klondikes. One at -5F and one at -15F. Cold is dry and better.

        Only a dusting of snow overnight on Saturday. Light to no wind. Cold, but that meant the lake was frozen enough for the girls to horse around out there. Challenging hike, which I love.

        How is the thumb doing?
        It's odd timing, my mother sliced her finger quite badly last week.
        Not a good time to be a digit I guess.
