Bud Paints On!
"I have finished 3,600 ears and am still painting," says 88-year-old Bud Thompson of Naperville, Ill., who started painting American flags on ears of corn 18 years ago and says he'll never stop. "I've met many wonderful people through FARM SHOW. They never seem to get tired of my corn flags. The ears harvested last fall are some of the nicest I've ever had to work with."
  It takes several hours to paint each ear, with 50 "stars" and 13 stripes on every one. "Every one is different because no two ears of corn are identical," points out Thompson. He sells them for $10 each plus $5 postage. Includes a metal display stand.
