It is again Cub Scout Popcorn time!




I believe it was three years ago when I first saw a Cub Scout trundling a cart of assorted popcorn goodies around our neighborhood.  If my memory serves me, I was good for a purchase of somewhere around $60.  If a scout came to my door last year, I missed him, but I found a Scout and his family hawking their wares outside of a Sam’s Club; I was good for somewhere around $36 then.  Today a Cub Scout and his Mom were canvasing the neighborhood and I enthusiastically hit them up for another $ 36 replenishment of my larder.  It is good quality food and it is for a great cause.

Yeah, I am a sentimental old fuddy duddy.  When I see a Scout, I see the past, the present, and the future of the true America.  Nobody can ever take that away from me.

I have never seen them. I will try to get out of condition white and into yellow.

Grace and peace.

Greetings from Texas,
If there is a downside to living in the boonies it is the lack of kids going door to door selling goodies. I've never been much for girl scout cookies, but I LOVE popcorn.
