store. He was always looking for ways to
make life easier while promoting the business. During the 1940s, there were
scripts that were handed out for meat, cheese, butter, gas coupons and
commodities some of you probably remember better than I do.
One day dad had a bright idea to get passed the rationing of meat. He went to a local farmer and asked him if he
would raise rabbits that he could sell to his customers if dad supplied a male and female rabbit. This was a great success for a while. When people grew tired of rabbit, sales began to dwindle. Dad went to the farmer and told him that he no longer needed a supply of rabbit.
Rabbits hopped out of the truck and besieged the neighborhood. Traffic came to a halt, gardeners were swinging hoes and shovels to shoo rabbits away from their vegetables and kids
were squealing with delight. This quickly brought several policemen to attempt some order. Of course all the kids had great fun trying to catch these cute little bunnies.
The herd quickly disappeared into the surrounding woods. It took a while longer for the laughter to stop. Blame was not a game we played back then. Dad didn’t feel responsible as he had informed the farmer to stop the supply with adequate time to do so. The farmer
wasn’t blamed because after all dad had furnished the mom and pop rabbits and all I can say is that the rabbits weren’t blamed because no one told them so they just continued to do what rabbits do.
