Memories of Rome Seed
Post your favorite memories of Rome Seed & Feed. If you have a funny story or even old pictures, that would be great. I have hundreds of great memories from the store, but probably my favorite would be just running through the long aisles as a kid. Some of my earliest memories are from running wild through the store, I remember it seemed like a giant, never ending maze to a 3 year old. Of course I also loved every spring when the rabbits, chicks, and ducks arrived. Those weren't so much fun when I grew up and started having to clean up the pens every day. You've never seen a mess like 200 ducks can make in 2' x 4' pen. Another favorite of mine was the time they killed a rat that was at least 2' long and bigger than any cat I've ever seen. It was one of those huge river rats. I seem to remember someone had to kill it with an axe. Let me know about your favorite memories.
