Cub Scouts

My son joined Cub Scouts during the summer.  Joining Cub Scouts means we have to buy the shirt and patches, which I sewed on.  Also I had to buy the Wolf Handbook.  He brings this book to all his Den meetings.  As I was thinking about it, I thought that the book would get beat up since we have Den meetings twice a month.  So I was thinking it needed a book cover of some sort or carrying case for it.  I could have bought an official Cub Scout one for $8.99 but decided it would be less expensive and more personal to make him one.  So I found some fabric that was skull and crossbones for less than a dollar.  The other fabric I already had, the buttons I had and the ribbon I also had.  It really did not take me long to make and X loves it.  Here is the finished product.

Supernatural – Meet the New Boss

So at the end of last season, Castiel became the new God and he asked Dean, Bobby & Sam to kneel down to him or die.  And that is where things were left and that is where things start up in the new season.

So Dean, Sam & Bobby bow down to him but he stops them because he knows they don’t mean it.  So he tells them if they strike up against him then he will kill them.  So of course, what do they do but try to figure out how to get rid of the new God.  Meanwhile, Sam is dealing with the aftermath of the wall coming down.  He has hallucinations of the things that went on in hell.
Castiel is the new and improved God decides he will punish wrong doers.  He kills those that oppose him, including other angels.  He goes to a church and kills the preacher, he massacres a whole office full of people and he heals a blind homeless person because he truly believes.  He is also falling apart, getting burns on his skin.

Dean, Sam & Bobby figure out if they can bind Death then he can get rid of Castiel.  They do this by summoning Crowley, whom Castiel has tried to bargain with and so Crowley is not too crazy about the new Cass.  Crowley comes through with a spell to summon and bind Death.  So that’s exactly what they do.  But Death of course is not happy.  Castiel comes and Death tells him that his vessel is falling apart and that he took in souls older than angels that were in Purgatory for a reason.  Those souls would be the Leviathans and that god put them there for a reason.  Castiel leaves after unbinding Death.  He then eats a meal (because that’s what Death loves to do) and tells Sam, Dean and Bobby that they need to convince Castiel to expel the souls back into Purgatory and he has set up a time for them to do that and they just need to bring Castiel there.

The convince Castiel to do this after he massacres all those people and he realizes he needs help.  So they open up the door, he expels the souls and all is fine and dandy and old Castiel is back.  Meanwhile Sam is retrieving a jar of blood for the ritual and is visited by Lucifer.  He tells him that he never left the cage and this is just torture by letting him believe he’s free.  Dean finds the blood on the ground and Sam is nowhere to be seen but he has to do the ritual.  So old Castiel is back but not for long because the Leviathans held on and he can’t hold them back.  They take over and now Castiel is the Leviathans and we have a new villain.
