Twinkler: I am lost (col) Here is my address. (girl mentioning her full address) My mother's name is_____ and my father's name is_______..
Senior: No. Not your address but what troop are you in?
Twinkler: Why troop? My mother told me to just give my home address so to trace my way home when I get lost anywhere else.
Senior: Hey twinkler, You're lost but just inside the school camp. Now, if you tell me your troop number, we can accompany you to your camp now.
Twinkler: But I live in (mentioning again the address.) and my mother is probably looking for me now. (The girl mentioned her address about two or three times..)
The Twinkler Scout was then reunited with the troop and that experience taught her the real motto of scout, to be prepared in mind and in body.
Later in her grade school years, that little twinkler actively participated in Junior Training Seminar and managed to be on her own, not a day camp, but three days and two- night camp.
And that little Twinkler was me. A once was a happy Twinkler, Star, Junior and Senior Scout, now a mom of two scouts.
