IF– Toy

A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys,
Painted wings and giants’ rings make way for other toys,
One gray night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more,
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar… 
Puff the Magic Dragon by Leonard Lipton and Peter Yarrow
Here’s another one from waaaaay back in my college days.  I’d love to repaint it someday, but like Jackie Paper, I’ve got lots of other things to do now

IF– Cultivate (Character)

With apologies, Mr. Rockwell, I hope you won’t mind if I share this wavelength for just a moment…

A Scout is:
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,
Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty,
Brave, Clean, Reverent.
 Boy Scouts of America
