Pastoral Idiocy And Meaning

I'm feeling all pastoral. I went out to my brother's house and these bales of hay were strewn in the sloping field below where the chokecherries grow. I was out picking chokecherries to flavor the cough syrup I'll be making in the fall. I made juice from them and now that's in the freezer so that it'll keep before I add the bark, whiskey, and honey.
Hopefully I keep my streak of not poisoning anyone with my herbal concoctions going for at least one more year.

homemade cough syrup! wow!!! how fab is that?!?!? and it has to be better and safer than nyquil! it has to be!

p.s. love the shot! i am nowhere near any type of country scene out here, and sometimes it is nice to get a view of the other world out there. :)

Droll, I'm just trying to keep the toxicity level 'low' in my cough syrup. NyQuil doesn't give a damn ;)

A little toxicity helps you build up a resistance. Iocane powder, anyone?

I'll Iocane powder you, smarty pants ;)
