Cool beans!

Does anybody remember that expression?

We had something kind of neat happen here this morning, and the “beans” part is particularly appropriate:


The soybean fields around us (we are surrounded on three sides) were being sprayed today!

I only stayed out for a second or 2 in order to take the picture, the boys were mad that I made them come in, but I didn’t think we really needed to be outside while he was spraying.  It was especially cool to watch (from inside) when he went low over the field that was directly behind our house.

To do the parts that were north and/or south of us, he’d have to pull up right after he got over the field:  he was WAY close to our house.  I chose to enjoy it, not be freaked out by it….

I snapped this quickly, and dang, look at the color of the sky and the field and stuff.  Yummy.

    I remember the phrase but I’ve always been too old to use it! 🙂

    Crop dusting looks like fun but I’m sure I’d be too chicken to have ever tried it .. besides I don’t know how to fly a plane!

    We used to have a crop duster who dusted a field behind our house. Once I was turning into our neighborhood JUST has he made his ‘dive’ toward the field. I thought he was going to come right in my car window! Needless to say, after that I enjoyed watching him from the HOUSE…HA!…..I say ‘cool beans’too…but NOTHING cool here in AZ this time of yr. Unless its in the FREEZER. :::sigh::::
