    The potable water one, was something my subconscious understood as funny far before my conscious m8nd.....

    ....there is a sink outside the bathrrommmmm at this place......it dispenses amazingly good tasting water......this place is a drinking water reservoir after all......and I heard someone say the words, "is this water potable?" ....

    I DIDNT laugh right then.....but it stuck with me......later on I realized this momo had run across the word "potable" at some point during the previous weeks when he had been reading up on camping and what not...m bwaaahahahah

    Went on a weekend camporee at Antietam, MD, around 1981 or 82. I was first class or star at that point, not a noob anymore. IIRC this was a fall camporee involving three counties, so at least two dozen troops camped out in a field above Burnside's Bridge. Our sister troop -- two affiliated Methodist churches were sponsors, so we had some connection and mostly all knew each other -- had a new kid, just got his Tenderfoot and never been camping before. He got sent on the left-handed smoke shifter hunt to-end-all left-handed smoke shifter hunts. Off into the night, he went troop to troop asking. We were all sitting around the fire and not even thinking about him anymore when this big ruckus started up in the common circle area in the middle of the field around which all the troops had set up camp. About 9-10 boys had decided to run the smoke shifter kid down and give him a wedgie ... a wedgie so bad they actually tore his underwear off him. He had to be taken to the emergency room. That's the last we ever saw of him.

    In all ways. You never know what you are going to get plus Forest Gump.

    And I at least try to be funny while upping my post count.

    Half of my posts predate the "Like" system. Would you guys mind going back and liking my ancient posts? They are feeling underappreciated.

    Brother, I have to see what you look like. Lol
    You, my friend are an enigma, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped inside a conundrum. Lol

    Are you taking your girlfriend? She'd be impressed by a dutch oven apple cobbler.

    And later that night, the apple cobbler dutch oven.
