1. Thank You, my dear lpbk2713!

How much I miss Walt Kelly, Pogo and the gang!

My parents loved them too and I grew up reading those comics. Great commentary.

Long live Boston Charlie!

13. It's a carryover from another time, another place.




It has a reference to what I used to do for a living before a retired.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I just got back on line
from watching the idiot box.

6. The entire first verse

I learned this from Pogo 60 years ago and have sung it every Christmas since:

Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla, Wash, and Kalamazoo.
Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo.

Don't we know archaic barrel
Lullaby Lilla Boy, Louisville Lou.
Trolley Molly don't love Harold,
Boola boola Pensacoola hullabaloo.

12. Thank you so much

We were big Pogo fans in our household. Best comic strip ever.

7. It is hard to say how grateful I am for seeing this.

As we used to say when we were young and foolish....thank you from the very heart of my bottom.
