The other day, Leah, Cassia and I were going to town to do some errands and to take Cassia to piano lessons.   We were very much enjoying the nice spring weather, and had all the windows open in our mini van.  Well—

  

We had gotten down the road from our house a bit, and suddenly, the nice fresh spring air started smelling like pigs!  We all exclaimed "Pew!" and up went the windows.

 

  We passed those pigs, and opened the windows again, trying to get the leftover smell of "pig" out of the van, and what do you know, we passed the egg ponds.   In case you wonder what on earth egg ponds are, they are man made "ponds" where the egg plants (not eggplants mind you, but factories where they process eggs )   dump their waste egg water.  Just so you know, egg water smells just as bad, if not worse than pigs!   So up went the windows again.

 

  We passed those egg ponds, and opened our windows, and a little ways down the road it smelled like we had just passed a dead animal farm.  I know, there are no such things, but it sure smelled like it!     

 

We passed that dead animal farm, and our windows were already open, (at least mine was—I figured that shutting it was just shutting the smell in!)  and we passed somebody who was cleaning house!  At least it smelled so!   It smelled distinctly of mothballs .

 So, we passed those mothballs and the people who cleaned house, and enjoyed a nice, breezy, clean smelling ride the rest of the way to town! 

 That is until we passed the fiberglass plant.

 

(No, we did not take these pictures–I found them on Flikr .  On the "dead animal farm" one, I decided that plastic animals was the closest thing to "dead" animals I was going to post!  I think you’d agree it’s better that way.)

    That is funny! The pictures were a fun touch.

    Yeah, I can tell you that I don't live anywhere near Indiana, so I will have to figure out how to make eatable bread myself.

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day!
