I never thought I'd have a day before all this where I have 4 different online meetings scheduled. All of them are for Camp Barstow the summer camp where I'm serving as Camp Director again. Hopefully, I can get some work done today too!

I called another Camp Director in my area that is an old friend last night. We both have the same mindset struggling with being the cheerleader to open camp and also trying to figure out how you can bend to make things safer without spoiling the experience. Late last night I heard of another camp in the Carolinas that has thrown in the towel for the summer (3 that I know of now). So my hope is that we can salvage summer camp even if it looks a little different.
In patch land I have settled into a routine of shipping M-W-F and using T-Th for projects and getting more listed. Today I hope to get some more auctions loaded into my listing program and scheduled for May. I'm leaning towards do the next live video sale this Thursday as I should have the office all to myself.
I have not been able to attend the Monday night online cracker barrel meetings that John Pleasants has hosted for NC collectors but it's a great idea. He has invited different people to do short talks for each event and I've seen good feedback. At 8 PM I am typically walking the dogs with my wife catching up on the days events so I will have to take a rain check for now.
Today my son Patrick came with me to the office to get a change of scenery. He is doing his online zoom meeting for math in the other room. It took his school about a month to get their act together but now they are rolling pretty steady with the online stuff.

In Charlotte, North Carolina I have an antique mall booth that is filled with nothing but Scouting stuff. I call this location my clearance center because I've marked down everything to move. A lot of what you will find there are items that are too bulky to easily ship from an Internet store. The booth is located in The Sleepy Poet which is a well established antique mall on South Blvd in Charlotte. The mall is open 7-days/week year round. So the next time you are in the area come check it out.
