Kirkwood, MO -- The scout camp out was hugely successful. There were pocket knives, squirrels, raccoons eating the bag of bagles and general horsing around. Finally the gear was wrapped up and placed on the tarp for loading to the trailer. The boys' back packs were in the cars and SUV's ready to go home.
Scott Tanenbaum, 12, had no idea which were the clean socks or underwear,but he was sure he did not wear the two plain t-shirts on a scout camping trip over the week end. Mom Kathy washed all the clothes found in Scott's day pack, and they smelled of smoke and generally "outdoorsy". Besides, they were in the same pack with a pair of soggy, muddy socks.
Scott had planned to wear the plain red one to school. He has a complicated color scheme he follows through the week, depending on the occasion. Gym day needs red and black.
