Meet Speckled hen:
You’ve never been on a plane! I am speechless, without speech. Time to fly Grannymar . .come over for Christmas and I’ll fix you a Mango Daquiri to die for! Only 22 hours in a tin can with a smiley gay guy and free drinks! (A slurry over here is a ‘loose woman’ hehehe)
How many Mango Daquiris have you had today? I have been in a plane many a time. ‘Flown a Plane’ as in drive the thing is what I meant.
In this country she would want to be some very loose woman to produce the stink we get from slurry! They spread it (slurry = cow sh*T) on the fields as fertilizer!
Living on a dairy farm, I know what you mean about slurry – it’s worse when it’s been agitated. Our problem at the moment is that as there is so so much rain, we can’t spread it! No fertilizer and a full tank going into winter – not good!!
I am 31 years living in the country, and it is no easier on my nose! Give me the Liffey anyday1 😉
Are you casting ‘nasturtiums’ on our lovely Liffey water?
Hands Off! 😈
You’re just jealous ‘cos we’ve got the finest Guinness in the world!
I don’t want to wash my hands in the Liffey, but it must smell sweeter than the muck they trail around country roads to put on the fields.
Yup, I know what you mean re the pleasures of living in the country including country smells but I guess at least it is being put to good use – rather than being pumped into the sea or something eqaully unsavoury.
A pint of Guinness in a warm, country pub that has an open fire sounds like bliss on this wet, squalid day!
Pee-yew! All that talk of slurry and stuff makes me hold my nose…LOL
Yikes! I know all to well about slurry! Since i was sixteen, my mother has had a large piece of property with rolling green pastures and woodlands around the perimeter. She has five horses, two ponies, and six cows. There is a large stream at the back of the property that the cows use as a watering hole. For some reason, they enjoy pooing close to the stream.
On a rainy spring afternoon, I was making my way down the hill towards the stream, when I slipped and slid down the embankment covered in cow manure. I was not a pretty sight for the eyes nor a delightful odour to the nose! 🙂
This post is really getting plenty of comments on slurry. I have to say though that silage effluent smells even worse than slurry. to mirror Jeffrerson’s story, I can remember when I was about ten and running down the silage pit (which was full of silage from the day before) slipping at the end and falling into a 6 inch humungous puddle of silage effluent – the smell just seemed to soak into the pores!
@Judy – It is enough to put me off my food.
@Jeff & Lorna – All I can say is Yuck!
Isn’t there a song about that stuff?
“Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
When I take you out in my slurry
When I take you out in my slurry
With the Fringe On Top”
Were you out in a surrey for the last few days?
Oh, I am so embarrassed! Did I get it wrong? You seem to be ever so subtlely telling me that I am confused about the difference between slurry and surrey.
See if I have it right now. ” I am very surrey to have made such a stupid mistake. It must have been because I had been drinking a persimmon daquiri and you know how persimmons make your mouth pucker and that alone made my words come out slurry.”
No need to be surrey about being slurry in the slurry!
Odd thing you remind me of with all this talk of slurry. (Actually, for me slurry is a generic term for a liquidy suspension; it could be made with mud, cornstarch, or Bournvita.) I can’t bear the smell of white pepper because it reminds me so strongly of pig manure. I remember putting pepper on my fried eggs at a B&B in Ireland and then being unable to eat my breakfast. So now I inspect the pepper shaker very carefully before use.
This post is getting downright stinky. Ugh! I need to spray some perfume on to get rid of the slurry smell.
This place needs the windows opened!
Now I did mention Chocolate… Twice! Lets talk about that.
Oops! same colour, sorry. 🙄

Sorry GrannyMar, actually it was the fifth chardonnay that did it. Dango Maquiries are for Christmas!
Late again and someone else brought up the slurry with the fringe on top!
Reminds me of the hairy creature with an hypodermic on his head…known as the Furry with the syringe on top!
