An Old New Girl Scout

Back when I was a kid, I was in Brownies, and then I became a Junior Girl Scout... for a short time. I quit and never missed it.... but there's a question in the air: what did I miss out on? Would I enjoy learning some of the things I could have learned? Would they be fun to learn now, as an Old Lady?

The answer might be yes! Therefore, I might take up Girl Scouts again, but in a new way, designed for an Old Lady like me. Take a look at this:



To mark her 50th birthday, Jean is launching a 3-year project to work on and collect 100 Girl Scout badges. They'll have to be re-designed as necessary. For example, she suggests that "becoming a teen" might be changed to "becoming menopausal." For me that might have to be changed even more.. "becoming pre-octegenarian" or something.

Anyway, I'm going to consider taking this on as a fun thing to work toward during retirement. Check it out and see if it's something you would like to do, too! Click on the words "take a look at this" (above) and it should take you to the blog where everything is explained.

Did you know the proper way to say Brownies is Brownie Girl Scouts?

Have fun with that adventure! Are there even 100 badges?

Ooooo . . . this project looks like fun. I'll be reaching that milestone next October. I'm going to keep an eye on her and may join her next year.
