Buy an extra box of Girl Scout Cookies. I bought 4 boxes this year myself. Yum…

As most of you all know, I was a Co-Scout Leader for many years with a friend Terri Jo Roof of Germantown. We leveled up with the girls from the time they were Daisy’s (kindergarten) all the way up to Sr. Girl Scouts.  I still see most of the girls from time to time. We learned songs and made crafts, it was an just amazing experience for all involved.

I would like to add I loved Scout-ing.

So, I stopped by Wal-Mart in Middletown the other day to get myself a few boxes of cookies. My next-door neighbor’s granddaughter moved to Sidney, Ohio. There went my locale cookie connection.

I love the Caramel DeLites/Samoas and the Thin Mints. Steven was home so he grabbed a box of Peanut Butter Patties and took them back to college with him. I may have to pick up one or two more boxes before there all gone this year. I don’t like the frozen ones. Sorry.

Scouting is a wonderful organization and I for one, thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with scouting. It was a wonderful experience for me and for my daughter. I still hang my ornaments on my Christmas tree every year as a little reminder.

I do appreciate that the troops are willing to stand out in front of a store or bank to sell the cookies in the cold. It seems safer to me now, for the young girls, than for them to go door to door. So please take this opportunity to support scouting and the girls efforts.

Equal billing here: Craig was a Cub-Scout for a year or two and he seemed to benefit from it as well. But they only sold popcorn and Anthony bought a can last month.

Personal Note: I don’t remember Steven ever being in scouting… I may be wrong. I’ll ask him later. Hey, my kids were in everything coming and going, I can’t be expected to remember it all. Thus… the way of a busy mother. Most of Steven’s childhood is a blur at this point, too many irons in the fire. Steven is a very private person, he really doesn’t like for me to blog about him so sh… don’t mention this. Okay!

Thanks as always,
