Greetings from Camp

Dear Mom and Dad: I like Camp Wannasnorgleya. It is pretty fun, mostly. Some nights I get scared and wake up clinging to a counselor, but it’s mostly pretty fun.

Once they pry me off, we all have breakfast. The cook is named Mr. Walter. He only knows how to make macaroni and cheese. That’s OK, I like macaroni and cheese.

After breakfast, we do activities. My favorite is Computer Camp. My instructor is Mr. Russell, who knows a whole lot about computers even though a judge said he’s not allowed to use them anymore on account of how smart he is.

After a fun day, we get to have dinner. Tonight, I’m earning my cooking merit badge by helping Mr. Walter make macaroni and cheese.

Then we tell ghost stories around the campfire. Tonight’s story is “The One-Eyed, Peg-Legged Pirate Ghost with a Hook Hand Who Likes to Hide Under Campers’ Beds and Kidnap Them When They’re Sleeping, Especially Baby Baboons.”

You may remember this cutie from an earlier post. Thanks again, Jamin C.!

“I’ll stop doing this when you stop calling my mom names. But let’s be honest, she is the 800-pound gorilla in the room, so it’s in your best interest to not insult us, you silly striped mule.”

Nahnny-nahnny-poo-poo, ThinkBrinke.

Is This Thing On?

Hey, is that a camera?  Am I on TV?   Hey, Aunt Louise, I’m on TV!

But wait — there’s even more Curious George action at the National Geographic site, including the thrilling “poking the lens with a stick” sequence!  Thanks as always to MarilynT.!

Amazing Picture of the Day

This photo will force you to do two things, in this order:

1) Softly gasp and mutter “Awesome.”

2) Yawn.
