A Quadrangle of Aitches
Did you know the plural of the letter H h is aitches, or, in some dialects, haitches? You can look it up. What happens when you get a quadrangle of aitches together? It would look something like this:
Yes, the new display case in MPL Youth Services is getting the proverbial workout. It currently houses a cool 4-H diorama. Need a closer look? Easy to do, when you know how.

I'd tell you whose 4-H display this is, but I didn't get permission first to post it on the Internet, so I'd best not. First-rate job, I must say. Quite nicely done.
Scowl-Face's father was big into 4-H, back during the late 1930s/early 1940s (before World War II caught up with the USA). In fact, one of his hoggerpigs was Grand Champion at the Indiana State Fair. That's a really big deal, even if it happened a gazillion years ago.
Drop by the Library and take a look at this display. You will learn many interesting facts about 4-H. In a historically agricultural state like Indiana, it is important to remain connected with the land and a way of life that truly made Hoosiers the people they are today. As for moi, farm felines made us cats what we are today. Hungry. Suppertime!

P.S. "County Fair," by the Beach Boys, appeared on the LP Surfin' Safari (1962), which was the group's debut album.
P.P.S. I've used this song before as a musical closer, but "County Fair," by Bruce Springsteen, really strikes a chord. It appeared on the album The Essential Bruce Springsteen (2003).
