Last February, I turned 12 years old and as a result, I joined the Boy Scouts.
I was growing up and I was lucky in more ways than one. Talk about a dream come true –Momma just about cleaned out the "Official Boy Scout Headquarters" equipment section inside Robinson-Cloud's clothing store on Main Street to get me the latest in Scout accoutrements.
I was really amazed by all that stuff.
I had been hankering for Boy Scout gear ever since I was a Cub Scout in Mrs. Ellie Pipkin's Cub Scout Pack, where she was our den mother.
