Socks was born to a stray mother about 10 months ago. Socks was taken in and cared for by his mother's finder, but, unfortunately, his caretaker developed an allergy problem. As a result, she had to give Socks up for adoption. Socks is affectionate and playful. He enjoys a good scratch on the belly, bird watching, and playing with a plastic soda bottle top. If you would like to adopt Socks, visit the Humane Society of Washington County at 13011 Maugansville Road near Hagerstown, or call 301-733-2060.

There are many things parents can do to help children get ready for sleep-away camp. Here's a list of pointers offered by Tri-State area camp directors: Do ... Help your child get excited about camp. Remind them of all the activities available and the new things they will get to learn. Encourage your child to stick with camp even if they feel homesick. Telling children they can come home if they don't like it increases the chances that they won't stick with it, camp directors say. Make sure kids have packed extra socks and underwear, a warm sweatshirt and warm sleeping bag or blankets.

This week I went to a podiatrist. I went only because my feet hurt so bad I was about to start crawling, and I thought that might look funny, especially to people I was approaching for man-on-the-street interviews. I went to the foot doctor out of desperation. I do not like going into offices that contain sharp surgical instruments in little closed-lid boxes. I sometimes get minor heart palpitations when I go into such places. Desperation, that's what it was. My left foot has hurt for roughly 10 years.

My son has gone away for a week of summer camp for three years now, and I've always been involved in the packing process. T-shirts, swim trunks, sneakers, sleeping bag, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, comb, sunscreen, bug spray. That's pretty much all a boy needs at camp. Before we started packing this year, I asked if he needed anything else. "I could use a couple more pairs of ankle socks, Mom, and don't forget, we need to buy some snacks for the bus ride.
