    • I’d tell anyone who would dare cuss me out via text that my flip phone lost  their message before I could read it. They can find me at a campfire 3 miles into back country if they want to come and discuss anything. Just bring dessert.
    • I am sorry this happened.  Try to ignore them.  It is hard to see people doing things differently than how you did it.  They probably mean well but went about it badly..
    • It can be hard for folks who hang it up to watch other people in the job and not be critical. If the Scouts, their parents and the CC are happy with your husbands performance as SM, he should take the old cranky SM's opinions with a huge grain of salt. 
    • Rules to live by: 1) The work is done by whoever shows up.   Show up.  2) Train'em, trust'em, turn'em loose. 3) Ye canst not please everyone all the time.  You will have three possible "bosses".  Please these three and you will be doing good:        a) Your God, however you perceive him/her /it.          b)  .Someone, somewhere, sometime, will ALWAYS be telling you what to do. A teacher, your spouse, a traffic cop....  At what peril do you NOT please THEM ?             c)  The fellow who pays you for doing what you do to get paid.  Ethical?  Legal? Satisfying?  Fun?     
    • " Do what is right by the scouts, don't worry about the rest"  Advice given me by a truly old time Scouter when I because a DL back in '94.
