Eagle Feathers

The year 1996 our family went on a week long camping trip to Kentucky. We traveled through out the beautiful state and observed splendid sceneries. We were on a back road in Northern Kentucky where there were many tobacco farms. In Kentucky nearly all tobacco barns are painted black to retain the heat so the tobacco plants that have been cut and placed up into the barns can dry faster. Then the tobacco is sold at an auction building. Regardless as we were driving along this beautiful countryside,our son Jotko age 7 at the time, catches sight of the black barns and yells out “Eagle Feathers”. Well, he assumed the tobacco hanging upside down in the barn (kind of off in the distance) were eagle feathers. We somewhat chuckled,never the less 15 years later we still tease him about eagle feathers and we all laugh.
