Well here we are: - Volume 4 Issue 3
Wie geht es dir?
It happens to me every spring. Just before the trees begin to green up I tell myself now “pay attention” this is the year you’ll see it happen. I always want to catch the landscape just as it turns that beautiful chartreuse – you know when the grey magically disappears. Well – I missed it again. But the oaks always give me a little extra time. I heard somewhere that when the oak leaves are the size of a squirrel’s ear – we should hunt for morels. Are there morels around here and is the legend of the squirrel’s ear correct? If so, it appears I’m a bit late for this as well. But perhaps I can get ready for next year …
I had the pleasure of visiting the Paszek farm a few days ago when the babies were first let out to graze.

Our cover for this issue comes with an interesting story. Chatting with Jonas Zahn one day he tells us about this vast collection of vintage BD signage that Steve Hankes has in his “man cave” garage. After a couple seconds – “that could be a cover!”
So the ball begins to roll - Steve is game - Julie goes to make some photos and we have a bunch of images to compile. Knowing it is going to be an enormous task - we wonder “who wants to do the assembly?” We recruit Josh Devries to help - you may remember him from his viewfinder spread in issue 18 and he accepts! We gathered a few more signs from the historical society - Josh breaks his computer and voila! We hope you enjoy reminiscing with us. Special thanks to Steve for sharing is collection - Josh for all the extra effort compiling – Julie and Jonas for the idea and images …
