Hmmmmmmmmm....... very interesting Sixten
Either giant marshmallow or bags for hay. I have never seen the likes of before.
Greetings from Rainy NC - Jethro
Marshmallow? There has been talk about the super-size product packages (they are coming here too) but I didn't know the situation was already this bad... So the scouts nowadays must use forklifts around their giant bonfires?
Hahahaha...... Sixten your knowledge of the minutiae of American culture (and language) is impressive. One day (perhaps) I will learn how and why!
Until then - your bilingual friend - Jethro
We have them here too, and I remember when being a child we used to roll them down a hill if there was some slant nearby.
It's nice to see them so organized, though; in Germany they are normally scattered across the entire corn fields (which sometimes makes a beautiful photo subject, too).
Thanks for the friendly words, Jethro. Please let me know too if you'll find it out ;) . One strange theory I have heard is some kind of secret international brainwashing (starting with comic books, continuing with the telly and cinema, and ending in some kind of web built by Microsoft and Google)
Patrick, it sounds like the local farmers there knew you and your friends too well :) .
Actually it was this well built row that caught my eye.
Great title and a nice package ~~~
I'm glad, Nick, that you think so. Greetings from the countryside :)
I like how you made a very cool picture from everyday items. Like!
Thank you very much, erki12, for commenting this and the other photos too.
Funny, I just saw these for the first time a few months ago. Definitely hay bales wrapped in bags they were, I figured it had something to do with our rather moist climate here because I've never seen them down south.
Probably 25 years ago we were sitting around a campfire in California roasting marshmallows when three young adults came to ask us about how to acquire a campsite. We explained to them the rules, and that all the campsites were full but offered them a spot with us as we would be leaving soon and they could take the site over. Turns out they were Finnish, I offered them some of our American delicacy (marshmallows) and explained the tradition. They were extremely grateful for our hospitality and especially loved the roasted marshmallows! It wasn't you Sixten was it?
Unfortunately not, Ken. I live in a small country, but not quite that small. I'll ask my neighbours... :)
Thanks for the great story and your hospitality
