ALGONA LANES Bob Riedel and Doyle Dailey, Prop. PHONE CYpress 4-2831 THE HOME LIFE OF A PHEASANT is strictly for the birds, but I'd like lo, be able to eavesdrop on a pair of them. I got to thinking about this the other day when we were driving in the country and saw so ninny of the lovely creatures. Pheasants, they telll me, are quite monogamous and take 'their family responsibilities quite seriously. The hen lays the eggs, but the rooster stays close to the nest until the chicks are hutched. At the risk of also laying an egg with this column, this week we're going to listen in on a conversation between George and Mnblc Pheasant. * * * . ' PA PHEASANT — THAT'S GEORGE — has just returned from a strut down the lane. He greets his wife with a quick peck and asks how she is getting ailong. "Honestly, George, I'm SO nervous I could fly! I thought you'd never got back." says Mable. "Well now dear, it's nothing to get your feathers ruffled over. I just went down by the water-hole and I got lo talking with some of the boys", says George. "Just the same," Mable goes on, "I can't help Worrying. All day long carloads of roaster humans have been going by and I heard several of ihom say something about, 'the Season'. I don't wanit to be a dumb cluck, but it kept reminding me of the last time a Season was on and poor Ha/.el Josl her husband lo one of those huniters !" * * * "WHY YOU SILLY LITTLE GOOSE". George coos soothingly, "this is a different kind of Season. They're not after us—it's the opening of the fishing season! But I must admit humans get jus 1 ! as wild during this one as they do during ours". "Wclfl", sighs Mable, "that's a relief! —< But I must say Hazel didn't .take it ton bad. She's no spring chick herself, but Harry was hardly turning in some oven before she was making eyes at all the young roosters. And then she nested up with the first one who asked her!" * * * "I GUESS HAZEL FIGURED A BIRD in hand is worth two in the bush", (chuckles George. "But dear, aren't you getting a little catty about Hazel?" "George!" Mable screeches, "if you are going to use profanity you can just move to another nest! You know cats are our worst enemy, and no decent rooster uses the expression in front of a hen! What if Ihe children should hear you after they are hathed?" * * * "I'M SORRY, MOTHER", George apologizes. "I was jus* trying lo chirp you up. You've had a hard day. How about letting me keep half the eggs warm? And what's more, I'll takfe over completely when you go to that hen party tomorrow." Mable admits, a bill grudgingly, "George, you can be awfully sweet sometimes. Setters are so expensive, and I would like to go to that party." * * * MABLE SHOVES OVER AND GEORGE nestles down' beside her. "Take it easy," warns Mabel. "Last riight you took way over half of your side of the nest, and the eggs on your side got quite cool." George says, "As long as we're just setting here, anyway— scratch my back!" Mable obliges. George says, "A little farther down —that's it—Ah! that feels wonderful! Notice the way those blue feathers blend in with the red? Pretty slick looking rooster aren'it I? Say, Mable, take a look at the feathers on my crown. Do you" think they are getting 'a little tjxin?" ' •r- •-'--•' ' ^ . ' . * • ' * * • ' • • ' -• • "OH. YOU ROOSTERS!" Mable exclaims. "I think you are perfectly beaultifull and you know it. I suppose it's just natural for you lo be proud of your fine feathers!" After a pause, George answers, "You know, the fellows were talking the other day and somebody said that with humans it's just the other way. The hens wear all the fancy plumage and the roosters stick ti brown and gray!" "Ach," says Mable, "That's not for the birds. Thai's strictly for humans! It's so much more practical being a hen and wear nice brown feathers that never show the dust.." * * * THEY ARE QUIET FOR quite a spell and then Mabel says, "George I just know that'this' time we're going to have three rooster chicks and four hens! Mother always said that the eggs with the most pecking coming from them were going to'.be boys". George replies sleepily, "That's probably an old hen's Hale! We'll take whatever we get." * *_ * BUT MABLE GOES ON, "George, when we get this hatch nicely started on grubworms, 'let's have another nest full. I always did belie ve in having your family when you are young so lhal you can grow up with your children." George grunts, "That's really counting your chicks before they hatch. For goodness sake, tuck your head under your wing and go to sleep!" * * * SILENCE REIGNS OVER THE nest for quite a time. Suddenly Mable pokes George. "Dear," she says, "would you mind awfully going out tine! getting me some sunflower seeds—or some nice fresh grasshopper legs!" "For crying out loud!", George explodes, "last week you hud a craving for beetle's wings, and then it was sprouted corn! Can't you ever bo satisfied with what you peck up during your k.nch break or what I bring home to you!" * * # IT'S MABLE'S TURN TO apologize. "I'm sorry, dear", she says. "I just can't help these uncxplainable cravings. I'm like that every single time I'm on the nest!" * * * THIS IS BEING WRITTEN on Mother's Day. Did I ever get the full treatment this year! Not only did I gel gifts and a card from the kids, I also received a present and card from Father! I guess my family knows me pretty well. When Jeanie presented me with the earrings she said, "DonM worry, Mother, we didn't really pay $4.00 for them like it says on the price tag. They were on sale." Also among gifts was a booklet of creative writing by the sixth graders in Jean's class at Bryant. I hud already received the booklet made up by Mr McBride's sixth graders and there's lots of talent displayed in both o£ them. I shall treasure them. * * # THIS WEEK'S RECIPE is i'or Mandarin Orange Salad. 1 pkg. orange Jello. 1 cup hot water. 1 small can orange concentrate, lhawed. 1 small can crushed pineapple, juice und all. 1 can drained mandarin oranges.
