Off to Northern Yearly Meeting
This Friday, Poodledoc, Jr, his friend Alfonso, and myself will be heading off to Northern Yearly Meeting. Our Quaker Meeting here in Madison is “under the care” of Northern Yearly Meeting as are many other Meetings in the upper or northern Midwest.
It takes place at a Lion’s Camp near Rosholt,WI. There’s a beautiful lake. It lasts until Memorial Day and is a mix of socializing, fun, meetings, business, more socializing and if the weather is warm, lots of fun in the water.
I plan to camp and am looking forward to the break from the Madison routine. Poodledoc, Jr and Alfonso are staying in the “Younger Teens Cabin”, with chaperones. These folks are brave. They probably do hang gliding, bungee jumping, walk on hot coals, that sort of thing. I do not plan to be one of the chaperones. I will just try to be sure that the boys eat their vegetables. I am looking forward to seeing old F/friends, meeting some new ones and sitting by the still lake in the early morning. While the teens are still sleeping!
