Dad was a real outdoors-person--hunting, fishing, just knowing about being out there--and he hurt himself laughing at what someone had done to the turkeys (and the turkeys that were paying to see the turkeys). There were hundreds of them--yellows, blue, lavenders, soft oranges, just about every color you could imagine. You could buy feathers in almost any color you wanted.
The good old days when the west was real.
Wow. I did not know that, John.
