Three Things

Prompts and Challenges

Sunday Spont-4

“There are only three things that can kill a farmer: lightning, rolling over in a tractor, and old age.”

Bill Bryson

(One of my favorite authors, Bill Bryson. If you haven’t yet, try reading “A Walk In The Woods”. One chapter and you won’t be able to put it down.)

  1. Emilio I LOVE Bill Bryson. A Walk in the Woods is my fave and have just finished reading again ‘In a Sunburned Country’. Your photo catapulted me to my childhood. 🙂


  2. I’d second that recommendation it’s a brilliant book and made me want to go do the trail. Another of his ID recommend is life and times of the thunderbolt kid it just drips with nostalgia and makes you wish you could step back in time I loved it.


    1. It’s funny but I haven’t read Bill Bryson in years when I came across this quote. I know I read The Thunderbolt Kid, too, but don’t remember it as well. Guess it’s time to do a bit of re-reading!


  3. Nearly forgot another is getting trampled by beasts it does happen. Beasts being generally cows and bulls I knew a farmer who would not get out of his tractor or land rover when he went into one of his Bulls field.


    1. Pressed post by mistake!as I was saying, beautiful atmospheric shot, Emilio.

      I love Bryson too.
      In fact, he was chancellor of my university here in England ( Durham) albeit some years after I graduated.


  4. Great photo Emilio … but then again, they always are 🙂

    Bill Bryson is a favourite … I think I’ve read almost everything he’s written, but A Walk in the Woods is one of my all day favourites. I’ve read it a few times and laugh out loud at all the same places 🙂


      1. I think that what a great photo does is to allow viewers to see beyond the photo, so they can read a story using their imagination. Many of your photos do that… 🙂


    1. Oh, and of course, the photo is fabulous (as usual). Can’t believe I forgot to mention that. It’s late and I should probably call it a night on comments, haha!
