The 2016 Peterloon campout was a huge success. It will probably be remembered for one important thing: No rain! After the monsoon in 2014 this is a huge improvement.
I spent Saturday afternoon hanging out with my son Tom. By the time I caught up with him he had already welded an eagle, and collected all kinds of swag from the events, including a stuffed frog.
The stuffed frog was a used and somewhat nasty thing, but Tom loved it. When we got home he cleaned it up. Then he noticed it had a battery pack. After putting fresh batteries in we made it talk. It had a few cute sayings.
While we were playing with it Beth looked it up online. It turned out to be a 1998 talking bull frog toy. (So it's older than Tom). New in box it goes for $50.
Tom needs to become a picker.
