|HUMOROUS SCARECROW THAT HAS LOST HIS PANTS|
CORN PATCH, ROCKCASTLE, COUNTY, KENTUCKY
In the last two years I have only found two homemade scarecrows. Yesterday made number three.
I noticed number three standing in a corn patch a couple miles from my home. He was quite humorous and I believe embarrassed as he stood there with no pants. This morning I woke up and went to the corn patch and snapped the above photo. It was taken from a distance so it is not as sharp as I like my photos to be. But, it's a scarecrow, a rare commodity around these parts.
My question is -- have folks given up this wonderful artful tradition?
Below are the two scarecrows that I have found in this area in the last couple years. I search personally for them when I am out and about. I also ask locals if they know of any and usually get a friendly smile saying -- nope haven't seen any lately.

I hope that this scarecrow tradition is not disappearing from our landscape. I don't want to sing my take-off of Pete Seeger's song -- "Where have all the scarecrows gone, Long time ago."
