Pictured here is my favorite Christmas present. It was bought as a “gag” gift, but I love it. “So, why a buffalo?” I hear you say. Well, as a scout leader, I have taken a training course called Wood Badge. When you take Wood Badge you are assigned to a patrol named for an animal. In the United States, the patrols (in the order that we sing/march in to events) always appear in the following order: Beaver, Bobwhite, Eagle, Fox, Owl, Bear, Buffalo, Antelope, and anything else. (I know some who are members of the Wolf patrol.) I “used to be a Buffalo, (as the song says). Therefore, I have a small collection of buffalo items. This will be added. I am on staff for the next Wood Badge course, and will have lots of items to loan to the Buffalo Patrol.
