The Blob

One of the most fun things to do at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch is the Blob. It's a giant balloon floating in the lake that is used to catapult kids into the air. They sit on the end of the blob and another person, preferably a large person (you see where this is going) jumps off a platform onto the other end of the blob. This sproings the kid into the air and down into the lake.

The bigger the blobber, the higher the blobbee goes. Needless to say, I was one of the more popular guys at the blob! They would look me up and down and say "will you blob me?!?" Being a big guy has its perks.

Here is me giving D a shot:

And here I am shooting one of his friends. He was a smaller kid than D, so he went even higher:

Hey! Lots of eyes on you here at J & L's house, including your cousin and best ant of the llano estacado. I'm showing Mom how to look at and comment on a blog. Looks like you all are having a grand time at camp! I wish you would blob me sometime, but you may be the one to end up in the lake....;-) We hope to see you Sunday evening, for supper or even just for ice cream or something! Take care!
