Re: That reminds me of my "Chicken Farming" years.

Barry Irby
I grew up on a farm that has been in the family for generations. Once and a while I would go visit my Uncle and Aunt in Louisiana. By this time my uncle was long away from the farm and lived in town. There was nothing about their house or circumstances that indicated anything about farming, except there was a nice plack on the wall he had been given for the "Chicken of Tomorrow". Somehow that struck me as a terribly comic award, but he was very proud of it. Years earlier he had raised chickens and his breeding program was quite successful. I bet the Colonel doesn't have an award that nice.
