Not the Red Arrows

 We make our own entertainment in these parts
 which is why I spent so long watching the tractor display team
 as they went through their routine
 of slow motion passes.
 There was a time when it would have taken several farms worth of laborers a whole day to cut, turn, bale, collect and store the hay from a field this size. Lots of cider would be quaffed and kids would have made dens.
Today it took 3 militia with three tractors less than 3 hours to do the whole lot. That's progress.
