A Letter From Cat Scouts Summer Camp

 

Kali, it’s so quiet without Shoko thundering down the hall to grab a straw before you do.

Personally, I like it, mom.  A relaxing and quiet time without Shoks blabbing at the crows like some demented squirrel.

Look, Kali, we got a letter. It looks like it’s from Shoko.

KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..PURPLE
SHOKO…..BLACK

Hi Mom, Kali, and Dad,

It’s me….Shoko! I am having so much fun at summer camp.
The first day we got settled in an awesome tent. Maggie is sharing the
tent with me. She’s so much fun. We ate popcorn and chattered into the night…we laughed till I wet myself.

The following day we went fishing and caught a Kokanee salmon.  Pete H. cooked it up on the BBQ with lemon and dill…just like you do mom.  It was delish!

We all went on a hike up this Half Dome Mountain. It was huge and steep….way too steep for Kali, she’d fall down. It was all I could do to hang onto the ropes and poles. MOL.

I wore my new outfit…it fits perfectly mom.                                                   
Did you notice the size of my head? Big, eh? Scout Andy said it was the altitude that gave me a big head. What’s a girl to do?

We finally made it to the top of Half Dome Mountain….what a view!

We got down the mountain a lot faster than going up. We were all back in camp and starving. Maggie and I headed over to the lodge for a fine meal.

In the evening we sat around the campfire and Obi said, I have a question, Denmaster. I was reading the Cat Scout Handbook whilst having my snack and on page fourteen it says that I should pack a poncho and rubbers. What if I\’m nootered?

Everybody started laughing even Denmaster.  I don’t get it mom?  What was so funny, eh?  You can tell me when I get home.

I’ll write again if I get the time mom.

 

Love to everyone,

Scout Shoko
