Mother Goose...I think

> Is that from Mother Goose tales perhaps ?

Been a long time since my grandmother recited it to me, but I think it 
is a Mother Goose item. What I do remember is:

Tom, Tom, the Piper's son,
Stole a pig and away he run,
The pig got loose and killed a goose,
and Tom got put in the calaboose!

That would probably be just one variation on the rhyme (calaboose is an 
archaic term for jail).


About WDCS 638 cover color, it was actually by Susan Daigle-Leach. 
Susan not only colors, but works up the credit pages- among a plethora 
of other duties - and in this instance forgot to give herself credit.
