February 1924, another Parker cover to add to our collections. Good luck finding one.

I quickly dressed in my outdoor clothes and mittens and went out and snuk up on the back side of a shock.
I got down on my hands and knees ans quietly snuk around and stuck my head and shoulders inside…

There was an explosion of 3 or 4 pheasants all trying to make their escape and one hen got inside of my jacket for a couple of seconds! What a great experience that was!

Thank goodness urban sprawl and habitat destruction can't take away our memories of those special years.

If it hadn't been for feed shocking and pitching alfalfa and prairie hay bales I'da never had a dime growing up. Nowadays all the farmers out here bail their feed and their hay in those big round bails that takes a lift to move 'em. I don't know how kids make their spending money these days - probably trading cryptocurrency or something .
