“Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of thing that money just can't buy
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love”
Lennon, John & McCartney, Paul. “Can’t Buy Me Love.” A Hard Day’s Night. Parlophone, 1964.

SUBJECT: Dollar bill origami ring
Well, I survived the camping trip. It started raining late last night and all morning so we did not get to hike again today. I was in charge of making pancakes for the troops – 23 girls and 6 leaders. I think I made about 80 pancakes in all. I told the girls that I spit in every other one and they had to figure out which ones they were. The looks I got in return were priceless. We returned home about noon and after eating lunch and taking a shower, I took a nap. My bed never felt so good.
After we ate supper tonight, MonkeyBoy tried following directions to fold an origami ring out of a dollar bill. He had some difficulties with some of the folding and asked me for help with it. I did and after I finished, he gave it to me. He said he wanted to give me a “dime-in” ring. *smiles* I love my boy.
