Greeting Card Campaign: 11-6 Marooned Without a Compass Day

Click here to download free Marooned Without
a Compass Day greeting card.
I have no idea who came up with November 6th as National Marooned Without a Compass Day. I suppose, given the political, spiritual and intellectual turmoil going on these days I supposed someone needed a day to celebrate being lost in the fog.

So if you feel like you're going around in circles, hopelessly lost, do what your Scoutmaster, Pathfinder leader, Camp Director or Youth leader taught you if you were blessed with one of those super woodsman guys. Stop. Go sit somewhere that you can see the sky from. Look hard at your environment. Check the position of the sun, the moss on the tree trunks. If you can't find your way out today, find a safe place to sleep and when the sun comes up in the morning, you'll at least be able to figure out which way is east.

So have a Happy Marooned Without a Compass Day and let your favorite traveling companion know there's nobody in the world you'd rather be marooned with than her with this free downloadable Marooned Without a Compass Day card!!!   Just click on the caption below the picture of the deserted island.  The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs.  Download the file. Don't try to print the file from within Google Docs. I use a lot of fonts and Google Docs doesn't seem to like them very much.  Instead, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "download" and copy the file to your own computer. Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you prefer.  Print the card from there and it should be fine.

This is a side fold card, so when you print it, be sure to select "landscape" and if you have two-sided printing, choose "flip on the short side" so that the inside of the card is the same way up as the outside. Say something sweet on your card, maybe you can talk her into getting away on an island with you.
