An Iowa Farmer's Romantic Gesture
Maybe AdamT could take a page from this story for his wife's next birthday.
A farmer from Iowa used a manure spreader and over 50 tonnes of animal waste to write his wife a birthday message.
Dick Kleis spelled out the phrase "HAP B DAY LUV U" in a field visible from the living room of his Zwingle home, the Telegraph Herald reports.
He said: "Someone said 'Do something you're good at', so I made a card with my 'pen'. I've just run out of stuff to do for her birthday.
"I was going to put a heart out there after the happy birthday, but I ran out of manure."
His wife Carole, who was also taken out for a meal and film, said: "He's done weird things before for birthdays, but maybe not this weird."
Of what she could do for Dick's birthday, she added: "I don't know what I would do yet, but I have six months to think about it."
"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man! We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
--Hugh Latimer, October 16, 1555
