Today's picture is from 1936, and it shows drought refugees from the Dust Bowl. Many families had to leave Oklahoma, and ended up in California looking for work. This picture was taken near Bakersfield. The photographer reported seeing 28 cars like this, all packed down, in a 45 minute period. Desperate people moving from place to place looking for a job.
Yesterday I reported that Lovie had renegotiated the 7-1 split of the chickies, and she had taken over all 8 of them, and she let Miss Kitty be "Assistant Mother". Basically Miss Kitty could stand around in the Peacock Palace and help Lovie if any help was needed.
Today I must sadly report that Lovie decided she no longer needed any help from Miss Kitty, and she has kicked her out of the Peacock Palace. Now it is Lovie and the 8 pea-chickies all to themselves. Miss Kitty just stands around outside looking sad, like she is saying, "what happened to my babies?" (In cases such as this, I have always wondered whether the question mark goes inside or outside the quotation mark.)
