He Didn't Know What He Was Gettting Into

Yesterday, I was tagged on Facebook with one of those get-to-know-you type memes that asks about a bajillion questions.  I answered them, and I am sharing my answers with you today.  Nothing should surprise you in my answers.  I wish I could say the same thing for the guy who asked the questions.  He's the assistant scoutmaster for the General's troop.  We're camping this weekend.  We have got just enough fresh snow to make camping an adventure for the annual Klondike derby.   With more on the way.  And temperatures in the teens.  Anyway, this should make for some interesting conversation on the campout...

Great Answers Arby.

Whenever I do one of those from email (I'm not in the facebook collective yet), I do it from the point of view of one of our cats.
