Anyone old enough to remember Oshmans Fur company in Mankato? Now that was a classic.

My dad used to sell there, over by Old Towne area, and they used to send postcards out telling you the top prices for coon, rats etc. Good memories- Ribnick Fur in Mpls used to buy too and when you drove in they shut the doors behind you, while they graded your furs.

Anyone still have any of those old postcards from Oshmans? I was collecting them for years as a youngster, and when I was in selling one time I mentioned my collection and they dug through a drawer and gave me a bunch more that I did not have. Kinda neat to look back on now. My oldest card is from 1958, mink up to $20 and coon $4.00. Cripes....that's 50 years ago!

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
