As I have mentioned before I have been involved for many years with the Boy Scouts. One activity I have thoroughly enjoyed over the years has been Rock Climbing and Rappelling. Though I have done a little climbing (when I was a few pounds lighter) I have had the greatest time working with the boys teaching them to Climb and Rappel. Many times I have watched these young men conquer their fears as they have rappelled sometimes hundreds of feet. From time to time I have also had the privilege of teaching young women also. Today was a particularly different experience. My niece who is 20 asked me to take her and two of her friends climbing. Of course I was up for it. I realized today, I had never taught 20 year old women to climb. What a delightful experience. Somewhat past the silliness of being teenagers, these three ladies brought a smile to this old Santa's face as I watched them conquer their fears and climb to the top.
