Our Beautiful World - STRONG

The word prompt over at the OUR BEAUTIFUL WORLD blog today is STRONG. We had been to day one of a weekend long country fair yesterday, and it was the day of the agricultural competion, eg, who could plough the straightest furrows, who could cut wood in the shortest time etc. When I was thinking about the word prompt, I remembered these two guys who wielded this enormous great big two handled saw, and you gotta be STRONG to get that to work properly -



And then they had a competition to see who could chop through this enormous log the quickest, using this enormous, very heavy axe -

I would hardly be able to lift one of those, let alone swing it! So thats my interpretation of STRONG for this week's prompt. 

I took many photos yesterday, I love farm machinery and I love farm animals, so be prepared for a long country post. Today the festivities are in town, rather than the fields, and if it doesn't rain, we'll be down there later this afternoon to enjoy the folk dancing etc. And take photos of course :-).

Until then, toodlepip xxx

What a great picture and goes along well with the prompt. You would have to be pretty strong to do this and just think how strong the tree is too.
What a great day this was for all!
