It's a crapshoot.......R

A local farmer fertilizing a field and getting rid of his cow manure...yes, look closely at the brown fog following him....

So here we is just around the corner...the end of a wonderfully suprising warm and sunny summer is coming to an end. The beginning of the summer/late spring started with the fertilizing of the fields...well, evidently, that is an annual tradition to end it as well.
Here it is in action...the (and in very literal terms) crapshoot....R. :o) Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is not for the faint of heart or those with a sensitive gag reflex. The smell is...undescribable. From first hand experience, I can say that breathing through your mouth does not is so pungent you just taste it. Much worse. All those cow pictures over the last year? Yes, that is the culprit. I guess fall is really coming now and summer is at an end. (and I would say "sniff, sniff" here, but given the topic, maybe better left unsaid and not done...)
