Me thinks you're right! Were you ever at the house when dad decided to raise guinea hens? Worst year ever!

I'm actually not sure why. Not for food certainly, although their was a fox/guinea genocide one eve that only left us with two...

Isn't it great? It's amazing it's from 1939, to me it seems so modern. I'm on a quest to find out more about Felix Nussbaum, and when I do I'll let you know!
