Eagle Scout

I received my Eagle Scout on 19 October 1993 making it 23 years ago!  Where does the time go?  Here are some photos of that occasion.

My Dad, Milo Ross, is also an Eagle Scout, so he could make the award to me.  Mom refused to step into a Mormon church, so my Grandma, Gladys Donaldson Ross, stood in for her.  Mom finally showed up and came in and then became offended because Grandma stood in her place.  Sometimes you cannot win!

Here is one of those awkward teen photos.  Dad had me take a picture before we went to the Court of Honor.  I borrowed someone else’s pants so they did not fit.  I was already in love with the green trousers.

I have a couple of the invitations and the programs for the Court of Honor.  Next time I stumble on them I should scan a copy so they are also saved for posterity.  Just remember, we all go through that awkward teenage stage.

The Beginning

Well, here is a beginning of the life of Paul Ross online.  I grew up in Paul, Idaho.  My home is in an area known as Kasota, which is part of the larger area of Emerson, which is encompassed by Paul.  Actually, Kasota sits on the county line, so technically I fall under Hazelton.  Paul phone number, Hazelton mailing address, Minidoka School District, but Jerome for voting and jury.  Just a mess.  I hope people will find that I will post some interesting bits every once and a while.  I will do this for the benefit of others, not for myself.  For those who wish to follow my life as I go through the adventures of life.  Please feel free to e-mail me with questions or anything else.
