In order to earn an art badge, Troop something or other came over yesterday to tour a "working artist's studio." They were delightful guests exemplifying true boy scout manners.....friendly, courteous, kind, cheerful, and clean.
In addition to learning about an artist's life, of special interest to the scouts were the pet goldfish in the backyard pond. The boys were fascinated that the fish were so friendly and tame. They thought of names for the new fish -- and I'm sorry to say that Shadow is the only new fish name I remember.
In honor of such fine young men, I hereby name the new fish Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Obedient, Thrifty, Brave, and Reverent.
