Every other vehicle was a tractor, bringing back this and that from the fields, or towing mowers. They are slow, it doesn't bother me at all; farmers are just doing a job and they keep our countryside looking as good as it does. Some people get very impatient on our winding roads, especially the motorbikes that are everywhere whenever the weather is dry.
You can hear them from early in the morning, roaring and screaming on the roads out of town. Them, or the ambulances that spend as much time scraping them up from the same roads. You'll see from this list that we have three of the top ten dangerous roads leading right to us. And I was travelling on number two in the list earlier today.
In other news: I cleaned the windows. This is an event so rare and unusual it really demands an entire post of its own. It's a bit like getting a new prescription at the opticians.
