Did you know…?

Following behind a flatbed truck filled with hay bales smells good enough to stay behind it? That is until Someone calls on the radio asking where you are and to get your butt up there.


Following behind a truck loaded with onions has the opposite effect.


A lot of hotels have gone to motion sensor light switches. Rude awakening for this woman that can find the toilet just fine in the wee hours of the morning.


The clothes hangers in hotels are excellent for drying a piece of hand washed clothing over the air conditioner. This is Joe’s idea and I give him full credit. I’m so lucky to be married to a genius.


A water bottle with a filter and cold stick COULD be a fantastic travel item if it worked. We bought one. Sucked and sucked on the “straw” and only got air. $12.99 was too much to pay for a half working contraption. Love’s did take it back and refund our money.


Now you know everything that is worth knowing….or not 🙂

Go have an excellent day.

    LOVE that clothes drying gizmo!

    He should patent that idea:)
    Last week a local farmer was cutting the hayfield, the wind was in the right direction and we were surrounded with the smell of new mown hay – that smell is better than some wines! The barley has just been harvested and the stems have been left to dry to make straw so they will soon be baled and stored.

    Another fairly local farm grows acres of spring (salad) onions and leeks and when those are being pulled ready for market the smell travels for miles! Overpowering or what:)

    Can’t believe that some trees are already shedding their leaves – it has been a most weird year! I think the cool evenings/nights is fooling the trees into thinking it is autumn already either that or the drought is causing them to drop their leaves.

    Love and hugs

      Ah. You know then what I mean about the good smell of hay and the bad smell of onions 🙂

      In Colorado there are black beetles that raise their rear and fire a stinky spray to ward off predators and unsuspecting children. Drying alfalfa that has been mowed has that same smell. Joe loves it and I think he is bonkers 🙂

      This is pretty cool, finding your place in this world is similar to my place 🙂

      Love you my friend – Leslie
