"One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do." Now that is dating yourself.
More fun is reading The Summitt during up and down games. They eat their young and regurgitate them depending on lead shifts.
"have you seen the little piggies, crawling in the dirt.
and for all the little piggies, life is getting worse"
one of the most..memorable sounds ..I've heard in my entire life was when a pen full of piglets - maybe 3 dozen or so - all decided to freak-out and shriek at once. There's a sound that Steven Spielberg can use in a movie!
I have been around many pig farms in PA and you are absolutely right, pinot. It is a shrill a piercing sound and frantic as imaginable.
And that was sarcasm from DD which is his natural state.
It's a parody and a fairly clever one, too.
Actually a cut and paste, only slightly modified.
You wouldn't know that, Nan, having better taste in reading material than some of us.
Leading to the observation that, when one's actual posts are taken as parody, one is REALLY typecast.
I think it's hysterical that Nan thought I actually wrote that post. Even my warped mind couldn't come up with that amazing stuff.
.....no one can be that, uh, out of it.
It's not like anybody else would!
He's writing show tunes with Oovy..
Is this your travel guide, across the river Styx...?
Looks like the scene from Phantom.
I will take the shrill piecing sound over the gawd-awful smell that comes from them there pig farms. I used to pass by a huge pig lot on my way between my home and college (Nebraska and South Dakota). On days when the wind was just right, you could start to smell the place three miles out. Only smell worse on that trip was passing by the Hormel slaughterhouse/meat packing plant in Sioux City, IA, right next to I-29. There are some things I miss about life on the Great Plains, but those two smells are not among them.
getting back to that, i grew up in Glastonbury and there were a good number of farms around town - mostly cow and horse farms. for some reason i really liked the smell of the cows mixed with the hay, corn, silos and the other farm smells.
but i also recall the smell of pigs and chickens. me likey not so much...
So you don't like fresh air ;-)
Yes, there is a strong wind near pig farms a former parishioner lost her sense of smell from a complication during pregnancy and considered it a great gift.
pigs have a strong smell but chicken manure is absolutely rancid.
Only on the Boneyard could a thread start out talking about You Know Where and end up talking about chicken manure. Or it is just a logical extention of the same topic?
I haven't read checkerboard square is years, is Shan still around?
I hate to waste a good memory, but anyone (like me) who spent time serving in the Army in Germany back in the day could never forget the aromas generated by the "honey wagons" that fertilized farmlands the old fashioned way. Unforgettable.
