I passed one of those the other day. They are enormous and need a vehicle driving in front of them with flashing lights.

What are they called in French Babeth?

Moissonneuse Batteuse Mandy, they came last night to knock at the door to ask to shift our cars !

Here is a watermill where we live. They make it work every sunday afternoon during the summer. Its last miller died in 1974.

The area is famous for its old mills, water and wind, maintained by a voluntary ‘Association’, worth a visit if in the area, ‘St Jacut les Pins’ 56220 :slightly_smiling_face:

It seems they are trying to diversify the agriculture around here. A novelty this year.


(Mandy Davies) #47

What a lovely crop. Have you got any going spare?! :dizzy_face:


(Bill Morgan) #48

Heaps of it, at least one whole field near us, here in ‘Happy Hippy Hollow’ :rofl:


(Mandy Davies) #49

Really?! Blimey! Who’s the “farmer”?

Oh I wouldn’t dare, could provoke ‘A Hit’ :roll_eyes:

Before any smart a’, chap suggests it, no we don’t partake ourselves, well not for many years myself :slightly_smiling_face:

So perhaps that is what these cows had been eating over the winter… :hugs:


(Bill Morgan) #55

Well summats cheered the lasses up :thinking:


(Mandy Davies) #56

They’re a bit lively if they’ve been eating that stuff! I would imagine them to be a bit more mellow. :woozy_face: They do seem to have the munchies though :wink:

Next thing will be a rave party in the field next door !
