Letter from scout camp

?Dear Mom
Our scout master told us to write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and worried. We are okay. Only one of our tents and two sleeping bags got washed away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because were all up on the mountain looking for Chad when it happened. Oh, yes, please call Cad's mother and tell her he is okay. He can't write because of the cast. I got to ride in one of the search and rescue jeeps. It was neat. We never would have found him in the dark if it hadn't been for the fighting. Scoutmaster Webb got mad at Chad for going on a hike alone without telling anyone. Chad said he did tell him, but it was during the fire so he probably didn't hear him. Did you know that if you put gas on a fire, the gas can will blow up? The wet wood still didn't burn, but one of our tents did. Also some of our cloths. John is going to look weird until his hair grows back. We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Webb gets the car fixed. It wasn't his fault about the wreck. The brakes worked okay when we left. Scoutmaster Webb said that a car that old, you have to expect something to break down; that's probably why he can't get insurance on it. We think it is a neat car. He doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if it's hot, sometimes he lets us ride on the tailgate. It get pretty hot with ten people in a car. He let us take turns riding in the trailer until the highway patrolman stopped and talked to us. Scoutmaster Webb is a neat guy. Don't worry, he is a good driver. In fact, he is teaching Terry how to drive. But he only lets him drive on the mountain roads where there isn't any traffic. All we ever see up here is logging trucks. This morning all of the guys were diving off the rocks and swimming out in the lake. Scoutmaster Webb wouldn't let me because I can't swim and Chad was afraid he would sink because of his cast, so he let us take the canoe across the lake. It was great. You can still see some of the trees under the water from the flood. Scoutmaster Webb isn't crabby like some scoutmasters. He didn't even get mad about the life jackets. He has to spend a lot of time working on his car so we are trying not to cause him any trouble. Guess what, we've all passed our First Aid merit badge. When Dave drove in the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how a tourniquet works. Also Wade and I threw up. Scoutmaster Webb said it was just food poisoning from the leftover chicken. He said they got sick that way with the food they ate in prison. I'm so glad he got out and became our scoutmaster. He said he sure figured out how to get things done better while he was doing his time. I have to go now. We are going down to mail our letters and buy bullets. Don't worry about anything, we are fine.
Love, Cole
P.S. How long has it been since I had a tetanus shot?

Stormin, that, or something very similar, has been around for years--BUT still hilarious. Thanks for a good laugh. Larry

I got that in my email many years ago. It recently got sent back to me by another friend,s o I know it's been making the circuit. Whoever wrote that was a literary genius. Every sentence is cheerful, childlike, and would strike terror into the heart of a parent. Wish I could thank the original author.
