About a week ago, at a Cub Scout meeting, I had the opportunity to help some boys learn the proper use of a couple of kinds of tools. One of the boys, Trent, smashed the tip of his thumb with a hammer. Poor guy, I thought he was going to expire right then. Fortunately, he made it. I suspect Messy will survive as well.
Also, I’m noticing (without intention) that Messy and Radar seem to have become a pair. I like to think of Radar as a babysitter if sorts, but not at all in a Max and Ruby sort of way.
