· Found this in Country magazine: “During a country drive, I stopped at a roadside vegetable stand for some produce. In the nearby garden row, a scarecrow stood dressed in a torn straw hat, ragged overalls, and a faded checked shirt.
A hoe had been stuck under it’s arm, giving it real country charm. I glanced at it and remarked to the lady in charge, “you won’t have to worry about crows in your garden with that ugly thing.” Then the scarecrow took out his handkerchief, wiped his brow, and went back to hoeing.” (Joyce Butler). 🙂
