H(ay) Day Invasion


We rent the farm across the road primarily to make hay on. With all of the machinery involved making hay over there has always seemed like a military invasion. I usually establish a beach head in the field right across the road, and from there we push further and further into the fields until we have conquered the whole farm. This afternoon I plan to take the hill. By the time we are done with hay the fields are all bare and the machines occupy the top of the hill. I am not sure why I tend to think of these things in militaristic terms, because ultimately I am pretty much a pacifist.

The military aspect is probably cultural -- we have all seen movies and documentaries about the staggering amount of organization, planning, and material it takes to move a military unit.

Plus, unlike planning a family reunion, a school party, or craft show, a military operation also involves lots of dangerous, noisy-sounding, manly machines! And maybe the cost of mistakes can be so very high.

Play safely today.
