Backwoods Stew

#Scouts #Cubs #Beavers #Supper

The ingredients were simple enough,

Taters in the embers of some dying beechwood

Corned beef, Some Carrots and a very big onion

Butter for frying, and some stock cubes for flavour

The Metallic billy can protected by the finest washing liquid

as flames licked the sides of the can

As the potatoes softened, the onions went see-through

hiding amongst the beef

and as the bubbles rose bringing the feast together

chef prepared his serving spoons – as it was served in tin mugs

in the other can ? usually tea but not that night

as chocolate buns were served for afters – with hot cocoa.

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Ventures all headed for bed after Campfire – with Smiles on their faces.

They said “Ban Soap at Camp”….but this rule didn’t apply to the cookware….as the recepticles enjoyed a dip in the bubbliest of alfresco baths and a scrub getting rid of charcoaled washing liquid

Some say, I’ve got a young bill Shakespeare to thank for the

ink drop blog you see before you

although I’d say I’m not at his standard yet..

i will freely admit, I’m no professional .the recognition my work has received has been gracefully accepted

depending on the media used, I use a combination of computer art, digital photography as well as film , craft work and drawing

the pencils pens scraper tools and ink pens have produced a variety of works…some scattered about this site.

regular readers will know, my writings a bit wobbly.  So after putting the scribble in one of my coloured notebooks..post process takes place either on the compaq desktop or my windows laptop.

right now though I’m typing this post out on my new acquisition from Currys.  Tapping out a blog page on an IPad mini.

but I’ll always return to my craft tools at hand….

about my notebooks you will find the link below.
