Editor's Note: See what I meant yesterday?  If even Pa is hunting squirrel then the family is darn well eating it.  And blast from the past Randsom King is still around?  Are you kidding?  I thought he hightailed it late spring when Frank pulled his lazy butt out of bed.  I know he's not working on the Cass Farm but apparently not all doors were closed to him.
