I Remember When...

...camping in the summer required a tent, bug spray, sunscreen and a hearty disposition (well, 3 out of 4 ain't bad). Now and days, camping in our household entails knee pads, sweatbands, ankle braces and athletic supporters.

Tomorrow, the Man-Cub is off to a nearby town for a two-day wrestling camp. Next week, both kids leave us; The Teenager to the college in Neighboring City for a four-day volleyball camp and the Man-Cub to a another college in a different neighboring (although not quite as nearby) city for another wrestling camp.

Hugh and I are attending no camps whatsoever but, if I had my druthers; I would be attending a Day Spa/Sleepover camp with the Girls (sorely missing Girl Time, can you tell?). For his part, Hugh would probably just want to spend a couple of uninterrupted days on the lake, fishing and sleeping under the stars which reminds me...

...of when camping used to require tents, bug spray, sunscreen and a hearty disposition...
