Being an opportunist is a good thing!

My orginial Sinningia 'Li'l Georgie'
Story # 52,

      Being an opportunist is a good thing!

      Back in my Scoutmaster days, there was a part of a Scout’s evaluation for promotion that was called ‘Scout Spirit’.  How could we use this vague ‘catch-all’ to encourage more success in the Scout program?

      It evolved that successful Scouts took advantage of every opportunity to fulfill requirements.  So as we announced activities we would always say ‘Don’t miss this opportunity’ ------- You don’t know when you’ll have the chance to do this again.

      Being an opportunist may sound like you are trying to take advantage of someone but I see it in the best possible light.

      I moved heavily into Sinningias when I saw the opportunity to have them propagated by tissue culture ------ the missing link.

      Never miss an opportunity.
