FRIDAY:  INTENSE HEAT BRINGS OUT HIDDEN BERMUDA SHORTS:  It seems there was one young lad, a member of the Scottie band who vowed that he would never wear shorts.  When his mother was packing his clothes for their band camp outing this week, she carefully placed in the bottom of his suitcase, a pair of his dad’s Bermuda shorts.  With the intense heat, he sent word home for his mother to send him some short pants, and when she inquired if he had found those in his suit case.  She was informed that he must have, because he had been wearing some, and evidently wanted some more.
