Chimo playing disc golf in Chester this past weekend. He didn't say how well he played. Apparently the troop had a nice time there.


The finches are back,
traveling on their way south,
tittering in trees.

Went to the zoo today. Spent four hours. They have done a lot of beautiful additions: pedestrian bridge, sea lion enclosure, water park and learning center. About ten years ago I took a picture of Chimo in front of this same tiger. Here is the up-to-date version.

My sister Beth and her husband Brad came into town last night and shared a nice fish dinner. A nice time, but too brief. Here are a few pictures.

Last night Chimo joined Joey as a pair of Life Scouts at Troop 324. Chimo was formally installed as Senior Patrol Leader. I am very proud of them.

Troop 324, with its newly installed Senior Patrol Leader, Chimo Tidd, camped down at Magnolia Plantation near Charleston, home of the Drayton family. They did a lot of touring, as well as work on their Insect Study merit badges. He said the most interesting thing they witnessed was an alligator eating a deer. It is one of the oldest tourist destinations in South Carolina. Here are a couple shots of Chimo.
