"Self-starters" means you organize on your own.
A virtue or a drawback? A combination maybe.
Poultry is raised in more specialized operations, right? I remember as a kid visiting a farm in the Alberta area where the boys that afternoon were chopping the heads off chickens. The headless bodies put up a fuss for a while. Somehow these images remain pretty well impressed in your head.
It would be a couple more generations before society upped the organized activities and elaborate facilities for accommodating kids. Rules would be stringent.
I'd like my politically-focused material to get more attention. My orientation on that was cause for a little sarcasm in a recent comment I got from friend Greg Cruze of Cold Spring:
Contrast this to the tender loving care Donnelly has always shown its "town hall," which really is a bare-bones (WPA) facility. Where there's a will. . .
And a big difference is that I do this sans the incessant begging for money! (Man, it's like the "Gremlins" wanting chicken after midnight.)
And, what's the jewel of the West Central Minnesota prairie?
"Morris of course."
