Nuthin' Like a Little Fresh Air

In the mail yesterday, Papa Pea received a new (used) parka to use for winter camping.  It appears to be extremely well made and brand new, but it did have a bit of an "aroma" about it from being packed away somewhere for a long period of time.

I suggested he hang it out on the deck to give it a good airing out.

This morning as the light got bright enough, I looked out and noticed that we had forgotten all about the parka last night, and it was still gently rotating on its hanger in the breeze.


I told him, "Don't look now, but I think your new parka went on its first overnight winter camping trip without you."  

Bet it smells nice and fresh now though.

  1. If there were any unwanted vermin in there, they are gone now. I have an old jacket that is too worn even for me to wear and it spent the night wrapped around our out door faucet.

    1. Sunnybrook Farm - If only we could hang all our ticks and bad garden bugs out like that and have them meet their demise by freezing!

      Hope your old well-worn jacket did the job of keeping your outdoor faucet safe and sound last night.

  2. Mama Pea,

    I bet his coat smells wonderful now.
    You may have to warm it up before he wears it, lol :-)

    1. Sandy - I did notice how much c-o-l-d air came off of it when it was brought in! 'Course, with the outside temp being only 0.9° . . . and a strong wind blowing . . . again!

    1. Tombstone Livestock - Well, I wondered what had happened to you! I didn't know if it was computer problems (*^&%!#) or if you were just overwhelmed with new babies popping out on your place.

      We sure are having the cold! It's 0.4° now at 4 p.m., it's snowing and blowing like h-e-double-hockey-stick. How much better can it get than that?
