No I did not.  Right now the only thing that I can sugest for an imediate solution is to remove that one dog.  This will get the door closed.  We can replace the dog once it is closed this will double secure the hatch from opening.   At least until we get it fixed....

They probably just got a picture of Rod doing something funny. Lol. Rod is a good guy though.

Let's see.  I am dog tired and feel like I just cam off my second back to back patrol.  Chasting C/S workers feeling like a drill instructor.   Moved into my new house and got the water leak fixed.        ;D

On this serious side.  I know I am behind on the scuttlebutt. i am continuing to work on the displays.  I just completed a WWI case witha fine collection including a Navy CPO uniform and an Army uniform.  among other odds and ends of things.   The WWII German display is also complete.  I am working on a jap display now.  In our collection we have Jap Navy uniform 2 helmets and 6 or 7 riffles.  among other items of interest.  I am well on my way to repariring the vandalism dammage.  Still a little more to go.  May begins soom with a Cub Scout camp out on May 3rd.  Fortunately this is my group of kids and I have more control here.   I will see how this goes to see how I can improve this program.   C/S workers continue to be of help.  I am going to limit the days to 1 day a week now.  It is geting to be too much for me to try and maintain the desk top work and keep an eye on these kids.  Again most that I have had are not bad.  Especially when there is only one or 2 to worry about.  Get too many more then that and they become a pack of hudlem.   They did get 4 new picnic tables assembaled and painted though.  We are also getting a Remada set up in the pic nic area. right next to the fire pit.  this will help make events a little more tolerable.   

Hipe this helps out.  I will keep you posted.

I've always called those picnic shelters, because that is what most parks call them.

Hell, that's everywhere, now.  Time to build the fence with minefields.
