We haven't had a "what on earth" entry for awhile because we've been doing (oh my gosh!) REAL WORK on the house.
So it's the best time to do another What on Earth? Tonight's theme: little folks in uniform.
One of the previous owners was in WWII and he was a Boy Scout Leader for 20 years. And his wife was a Girl Scout leader for about 10+ years. Which makes things SUPER interesting. I mean, BIG merit badge flashbacks for me all of the time.
We've posted a few things already and I can't post the rest of EVERYTHING tonight, but here are a few new things:
Thin Mint Wrappers...no cookies
Mug from camp...
An issue of "Speideren", a Norwegian magazine from 1930. This one IS pretty unusual considering Scouting was banned from Norway by the Nazi Partyin 1940 and everything related to scouting was burned. Very few things exist from there today that weren't mailed out of the country before that time (such as postcards).
Join the Boy Scouts!
Small world! A used to live in Colorado Springs!
And finally, because I found the pictures, Ryan models the tent backpack that he was picked up from us this fall. Looking good, RJ!
And yes, ladies, he's single :)
