WE FIGHT, WE FIGHT, WE FIGHT AND FIGHT AND FIGHT…
BECAUSE WE ARE FRIENDS!



The two Scouts in this photo were both stubborn. They argued about everything. If one said the sky was blue, the other one would claim it was azure, and azure was not blue. They argued at camp. They argued in the van. They drove everybody nuts. You can tell that, in the photo, they do not agree on how to build this fire lay.

These two argued so loudly that the Law Merit Badge used them as the case for the mock trial at winter camp in 2004. The loser said the jury was stupid. The winner said the loser’s lawyers were stupid.

Later that year these two came close to a physical altercation—over whose responsibility it was to pick up a notebook that fell off of a picnic table.

The Scout on the left is Paul, our third Eagle. The Scout on the right is Calum, who is currently doing his Eagle project. Last year Paul shipped out with the navy, and there was finally peace in Texas campgrounds!

Last Sunday, Calum gave a testimonial before our church congregation, and credited Paul as his role model and inspiration. I guess sometimes Scouting is working in ways we can’t see!
