Recalling the shivaree

| December 2007

I really relate to a lot of the things you write about in Farm Collector. The shivaree article (Farm Collector, October 2007, page 44) really rang my bell. Years ago a bunch of us well-wishers called on some newlyweds, but they wouldn't come out. So we crawled up on the roof and threw a coat over the chimney and smoked them out. We always took a buzz saw blade along, slipped it on a piece of pipe and hit it with a hammer to make a lot of noise. Those were the days!
