Peeps, chicks, or squabs?

They look like homing pigeons to me.

Original Yellow Peeps

Early in my postal career when Peeps came in the mail for the farmers. We always called the farmer and he would come in for the peeps. Always told they'll grow if you don't Plant them to Deep. Got a lot of dirty looks.

Wonderful Site Dave

I discovered this site a month ago and went all the way back to the beginning. Took almost exactly a month, and there were ten new pages when I was done. Very engrossing, and I can't believe I never heard of it before.

Some of the Civil Air Patrol photos featured a 1930's Cabin Waco biplane. My dad was an AAC/USAF pilot, and we had one of those in the late 50's/early 60's. Some of my earliest memories are of flying in the Waco on various vacations.

Keep 'em coming!

RC Cola

Originally created in Columbus, GA. That wax paper wrapper may have contained a moon pie.
