The troop camped at Dreher State Park this weekend, bringing in the newest Scouts and doing some camping training. Here are a few images of Chimo I grabbed from the troop's FB page. I don't know exactly what is going on in the pics, but it seems Chimo was doing some teaching.

In the third grade, if I remember correctly, Joe had the lead role as the Scarecrow in the Satchell Ford Elementary production of The Wizard of Oz. I thought the film of the event was lost, but Chimo found it. It is about fifteen minutes long. Joey appears starting about 3:30 mark, dances for a minute or so, and then has smaller parts following. At the moment I only have a link, which you copy and paste in order to get to the google file for viewing..

Chimo found an old disc of video from 2006. Here is a link that I hope works of Joey during ballet session. He is wearing the garnet Gamecocks outfit. The quality is not the greatest, but still I love it.If I can figure out how to save the video another way, I will add it to this post.

If our soul is also mind
And we don’t leave it behind,
Then afterlife will be okay;
There is space for lots of play.
