This picture depicts the USS Salem in that distant era (i.e., last week), when it did not rain continuously. To date, neither this ship nor our house have floated away. Yet.
The boy and I had a great time during the overnight adventure we had with our Cub Scout pack. We learned about the technology and routine of the sailors on the ship, and there were plenty of activities to tire out engage the boys. The night ended with the kids watching a movie, which is just what the real sailors did back in the day to fill up their evenings !
