The Eastern Shore All Stars - Part Two of Two
by: Ron Koch
When we left you last time, Wonder Woman and I were leaving Grayson Chesser's Hunting
Lodge and continuing our tour of Eastern Shore Decoy Carver All Stars by heading
to Cameron McIntyre's home a few miles away. Cameron had told me that our GPS wouldn't
find his place but I didn't believe him - that is, until I realized we were either
going to run out of road or drive into Chesapeake Bay. Sheepishly I called him and
told him we were lost, but he said he could see us well past his house which is
pretty much hidden from view. He doesn't exactly live in the middle of nowhere;
but if you look really hard, you can see it from there.

Derelict Decoy Corner - #9 in a Series
by: Stan Van Etten
Room-to-room trading is always fun at the Midwest Decoy Club's annual National Decoy
Show at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois. Fun, yes! But I never
seem to be very effective at making the rounds of the hundreds of rooms filled with
exciting stuff - especially wooden ducks - old wooden ducks! I'm always getting
sidetracked - stopping in a hallway to talk with someone about an article for H&FC,
running into someone I'd been meaning to talk with ever since last year's show...
You know how it goes. But, although I never seem to get to more than about half
of the rooms, I always seem to come back home with at least a few prizes that, before
I spotted them, I didn't know I couldn't live without.
