You might just if you were reading Boys Life in the 50's?
I have been in scouting since I can remeber. I remember "helping"
my scoutmaster father sell Christmas Trees when I was 8 years old.
He was known for quoting poetry and one particular poem was regarding
the life and times of Pluto the Office Pup.
"I'm cold wailed the pup down in cuba,
Where it was 99+ in the shade.
With a fur buttoned coat,
Buttoned up to his throat,
He was sipping a hot lemonaid."
As I fondly recall my father quoting. I am looking for the whole
poem. Does anyone have any leads on where I might find this poem?
I remember bits and pieces more, but the best lead that I can get
was that my father remembers it was in the Boys Life magazine. Maybe
in the early 50's.
