Holy crap, friends. Winter: we are in it.
It’s so wintery today that I am sitting here, writing this, while drinking a big old mug of hot chocolate- intentions to consume less sugar be damned! Instead of working, I decided to finally, finally, finally take some photos of my old, 1950s Girl Scout Hand Book. Guys, it is so good and still really useful. In fact, I don’t remember my GS Handbook being as useful as this old gal. I referenced it the other day when I had to build a fire in the fireplace all by my lonesome. And it’s a great little buddy to have when it comes to other ruff’n’tumble skills, too: tying knots, rowing boats, making really complex marionettes and saving someone who has fallen through thin ice. It was very difficult to not scan every page with an image on it because the brush and ink drawings and diagrams are just too dang charming. If there is something specific you are looking for, give me a holler and I can try to pull it up for you.
So, here come a lot of images. Be prepared.
