I told you. I told you I would spoil you with scout pictures! Feast your eyes on these.
The cake I picked out at Safeway, when the Costco parking lot was too crazy to even attempt a visit yesterday. Chocolate with buttercream filling and that super sugary frosting. Yum.
These guys presented the "Arrow of Light" awards to the Webelos. It's the highest Cub Scout award! These three ran the whole program. See the little bridge behind them, they used that too.
Here's Riley, on the bridge, becoming a Boy Scout. The boys in the Boy Scout troop take his Webelos kerchief off, change the little doodads on his shoulders, shake his hands, and give him a Boy Scout handbook. This troop is known as the "Dragons." They have dragons on their kerchiefs. Cool.
It's official. Riley is a Cub Scout no more. He is a real Boy Scout. He can now attend all Boy Scout functions, and has his first "duty," busing tables at the Elks Lodge, in a couple of weeks. Congratulations, Riley!
Word of the day: Potty Patrol. Okay, that's two, and this is completely unrelated to scouting, obviously, but it is worth mentioning. Apparently, there is an arsonist on the loose in San Francisco. This person is setting the public toilets on fire. These toilets are kind of new. They have them on the street, free-standing, in a little box kind of thing. You pay to go in them-literally and figuratively. They are quite expensive, and this bozo is burning them down. Anyway, so this group of people got together and had a little protest today. They marched around the city with toilet seats and chanted-here's the best part..."You got to fight. For your right. To po-tty!" You know, like that Beastie Boys song! Hysterical. Only in SF. That's what makes SF such a great place. People will rally together to support a cause, and they are right too. Made me laugh. March on people!
