Subject: Happy! - Aug 25 (with Boston Charlie)

Happy Birthday!

Folk poet,

Walt Kelly

was born


Among his essential, and now traditional, seasonal songs is my late brother-in-law, Charlie-from-Boston's favorite song:
        Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
        Walla Walla, Wash., an' Kalamazoo!
        Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
        Swaller dollar cauliflower alley'garoo!

[thanx to many r.m.f scholars, including "JY," Colegrove, Wisan, Jennings, Kesselman]
