Off for a bit

I trust you all had a fantastic Christmas with your families.  As you know, there is no rest for the wicked: so Right Stuff and I are off today to attend the New Zealand Scout Jamboree.  We've been really looking forward to it all year.

So Dux will have a bit of time to extend his lead in the painting competition a little further.  I hope he feels guilty taking advantage of a man who volunteers his time in the community...  :-D

Anyway, this is what my painting area looks like a week and a half into the fray:

See you when we get back and in the meantime have a great New Year's Eve!


  1. Sadly I'm off for a week as well, but no, I don't feel guilty in the slightest. :) Have a great and worthy time with Right Stuff, and happy New Year.

  2. Sounds like you are going to have a great time.

  3. Enjoy the scout Jamboree. Scouting was a hugely positive influence on my son and I still coach our troop's robotics team. I do miss the camping outings!

  4. Nek minnit it's time to go to NZ.

  5. Hope you guys have a great time :-)

  6. Have a great time!
    If you can share a couple of pics afterwards it would be great!
    (For some of us former scouts, who love outdoor camping, and happen to live as far as you can get from NZ, the conceptual idea of camping there sounds like... WOW!
