Day 90 - Cotton Bale

Well darn, I've missed two more days - but I was just too tired to do anything. Saturday was a travel day - it takes a long time to get from California back to the deep south. I finally arrived in Tennessee at 8:30PM Saturday night - spent that night and Sunday night at my daughter's in Tennessee and drove home today. I was totally wiped out yesterday.

Saw these cotton bales on my way home from Tennessee today. Not sure if they were before I crossed the state line or not, but pretty close either way. Don't see them much anymore, and the cotton picking machines leave so much waste cotton in the fields... sure not like having them picked by hand - but then no one wants to do that anymore.

WOW, that is COOL! I've never seen anything like that before. Wonder how many pieces of clothes that makes!?

Wow, too. I never realized a cotton bale was so big!

In Louisiana back in the 70's you could still see fields being picked by hand. We use to see the trucks go by with big mounds of cotton in the back - I've never seen it baled like this - that thing is HUGE.
