OK, so this song comes to mind..

I think you have to be over the age of 50 to remember this song:

Hello muddah, hello faddah
Here I am at Camp Mark Allen
Camp is very entertaining
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops blowing/freezing/raining.
I went swimming with some athletes
They developed near pneumonia
You remember Kona winners
They only got faster after dinner.
Take me home, oh muddah, faddah
Take me home, I hate Camp Ironman
Don't leave me out in Boulder where I might get eaten by a hippy.
All the counselors hate the BOP-ers
And the heart rate makes me slower
And the head coach wants no losers
So he tells us to be nutrition users
Wow I don't want this should scare ya
But my husband is
becoming faster,
And my running looks more like a disaster.
Take me home...I promise I will not make complain
Or be negative anymore.
Oh please don't make me stay
I've been here one whole day.
Dearest faddah, darling muddah,
How's my precious little road bike,
Let me come home, if you miss me
I would even do Jay Benson.
Wait a minute, I start liking,
Guys are swimming, girls are biking
Running videos, gee that's better
Muddah, faddah kindly disregard this letter.

Camp MAO Online report to follow..

That is too funny...I didn't know you were such a talented song writer!

I love the line about H getting faster and your running looks like a disaster (not true about your running, though).

Oh that does bring back memories.

Nice to know all those emails the camps send out lead to real camplers. Carmichael should be so lucky - bwahahahahahaha...


I'm sure you are getting better - sure of it!
