And it isn't a skunk!
After I snapped this pic of the vehicle leading a slow procession down US Rte 14 (with us in second place) towards Spencer, the driver turned around to stare. I guess he wondered why anyone would be taking a picture of a manure spreader.
I have so many responses to that! None of them polite enough to post here, unfortunately :-) He'd be even more surprised to learn that he's on the internet.
Just after we managed to pass him (and after I'd turned off the camera) we were passed by another spreader exactly like this one, traveling in the opposite direction. For a split second we wondered how in the world he'd managed to get ahead of us and going back in the opposite direction so quickly. A deja vu' moment.
The picture speaks to the kind of weather we're having that farmers are getting out in their fields to get some chores done.
