Cubmaster's Pack Book for the Boy Scouts

Okay, who out there was in the Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts?  We all had our handbooks for the different levels and such.  You could do everything from tie a special knot to building a lean-to to sleep under!  This here is a Cubmaster's book and has a copyright of 1954.  This is my only hardbound scout book.  My others are the various other books from different years in soft covers.  This hardcover is full of photos of scouts performing numerous tasks and having a good time.  It also includes the traditional illustrations throughout the book that most all scout books feature.  How about that race car in the photo!  I never built one of those, but my son and I did for during his scouting period.  (We won!.....I mean he won!)

Joe Brocato's of Shreveport

I never was able to go to this fine restaurant here in my hometown, but I know a lot of folks who did.  They had only good things to say about it.  Specializing in K. C. Steaks, Golden Brown Chicken & Meatballs & Spaghetti.  The King's Hwy. location now has a photography studio as the new proprietor.  I can't educate any on the Spring St. location and what became of it.  Maybe some folks out there can comment below and tell us about their visit(s) to the fine restaurant(s).   It was apparently home of the WOP SALAD.  I need a little help there with that one too!
