    Big Ed! What's the deal.....you changed my reservations to Bora Bora to Camp Sasquatch!!! :eek:

    Gonna have to get you for this!!

    AND the Forestry Service guys said I DO NOT have to wear a belt with bells on it to scare bears away! They said if you want to find a bear, follow the bear scat with the little bells IN THEM! :mad:

    They also told me it's NOT my job to pick up all the deer and bear droppings and that it could even be DANGEROUS! I DEMAND HAZARDOUS PAY!!

    All this because I refused to let the "Hip Hoorahs" hang their unmentionables on your porch any more!! o_O

    Be sending CARE packages home, I would check mine out VERY carefully if I were you!!:ninja: :eek:

    P.S. If the horse knows the way, what difference does it make if I get on backwards!!

    VERY ANGRY Major Marja of the Super Hip Hip Hoorah CO....from Camp Sasquatch......(fuming)

    Hope you feel better soon..help is on the way.


    :-*

    In two OH Zero five we took a little hike
    With our scout master ED down to Lake Oneeganite
    We took a little pizza and we took some saurkrauts
    And we marched along together till we heard the girl scouts .

    We're the boys from Camp Kittymonga
    Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways
    We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together
    But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze

    And I was mad because me mother sent me up here ha-ha-ha

    Well, we crept up to the water and we see the girls a-swimmin
    There musta been a hundred of them pretty young women
    They looked so fine even birds forgot to sing
    We lay down in the poison oak and didn't say a thing

    We're the boys from Camp Kittymonga
    Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways
    We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together
    But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze

    Hey, will one of you fellas scratch my back

    Well, our counselor said we could take them by surprise
    If we didn't say a word till we looked them in the eyes
    We kept real still and we had our eyes aglued
    We saw how they were dressed they were swimming in the
    Welll now...

    We're the boys from Camp Kittymonga
    Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways
    We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together
    But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze

    Well, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    They ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
    They ran so fast even we couldn't catch them
    Lake Oneeganite all the way to Buffalo

    Hey, fellas wait for me

    Well we ran right after them till everyone was pooped
    So we rested for a moment and our forces we regrouped
    Then we saw the girls behind some evergreens
    Captured by a company of United States Marines

    We're the boys from Camp Kittymonga
    Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways
    We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together
    But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze

    Aww, those big guys get everything

    Well, they ran through the briars an they ran through the brambles
    They ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
    They ran so fast even we couldn't catch them
    Lake Oneeganite all the way to Buffalo

    A-rootie-toot-toot, a-rootie-toot-toot
    Ah we are the boys from the boy scout troop
    We don't smoke and we don't chew
    And we don't go with the girls that do

    Information, Please

    The story is told of a lady who was rather old-fashioned, always quite delicate and elegant, especially in her language. She and her husband were planning a week's vacation in Florida, so she wrote to a particular campground asking for a reservation. She wanted to make sure the campground was fully equipped, but didn't quite know how to ask about the toilet facilities. She just couldn't bring herself to write the word "toilet" in her letter. After much deliberation, she finally came up with the old-fashioned term BATHROOM COMMODE. But when she wrote that down, she still thought she was being too forward. So she started all over again, rewrote the entire letter referring to the bathroom commode merely as the BC: "Does the campground have it's own BC?" is what she actually wrote. Well, the campground owner wasn't old-fashioned at all and when he got the letter, he just couldn't figure out what the woman was talking about. That BC business really stumped him. After worrying about it for awhile, he showed the letter to several campers, but they couldn't imagine what the lady meant either. So the campground owner, finally coming to the conclusion that the lady must be asking about the local Baptist Church, sat down and wrote the following reply:

    Dear Madam:
    I regret very much the delay in answering your letter, but I now take pleasure in informing you that a BC is located nine miles north of the campground and is capable of seating 250 people at one time. I admit it is quite a distance away, if you are in the habit of going regularly, but no doubt you will be pleased to know that a great number of people take their lunches along and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay late. It is such a beautiful facility and the acoustics are marvelous...even the normal delivery sounds can be heard. The last time my wife and I went was six years ago, and it was so crowded we had to stand up the whole time we were there. It may interest you to know that right now a supper is planned to raise money to buy more seats. They are going to hold it in the basement of the BC. I would like to say it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly, but it surely is no lack of desire on my part. As we grow old, it seems to be more of an effort, particularly in cold weather. If you do decide to come down to our campground, perhaps I could go with you the first time you go, sit with you, and introduce you to all the other folks. Remember, this is a friendly community.
    Sincerely, (Campground Owner)
