• A proud symbol

After taking a pass on Back to School Week and Are You Ready for Some Football?, which I believe was also a week, I’m relieved to be able to contribute to Foraging Week. It’s a subject I know something about—probably a little more than you do. It’s wrong to speak up when you have nothing to say.

You see, my wife grew up in a Nebraska farm town, and I’ve heard her reminisce many times about the Forage Club, which she said all the kids belonged to, its proud symbol being a shamrock. I was never able to catch exactly what they did in the Forage Club, but she described it as wholesome. So wholesome it might have had something to do with her winding up in Chicago.
