    I've heard they are starting to use mandolins to keep those hay bails from falling over.

    Yeah, something changed on my phone I'm assuming as well. I can rotate them when I get them on my desktop but for some reason my phone is suddenly changing the orientation. I'm assuming it happened with an update. The forum software as far as I know just accepts what you put up.

    That type of hay bale, sadly, is illegal in Kansas.

    My wife's family is from the south in the Pyrenees. I'd never seen them prior to that trip.

    Round bales are available all over NE Ohio also. We use banjos to keep them from rolling away though.

    Do you mean that people are actually supposed to come to see you when you play? That looks like one of my gigs - in full swing!

    If they get wet (rain, snow), they start to do what nature does and break down. That breakdown causes significant enough heat to spontaneously combust. I've seen whole fields burn because one round bale got wet and combusted from the internal heat. Not pretty.

    Actually that's hay. There is a difference between hay and straw.

    Yeah, but what we actually care about is whether it's one of those new decomposable paper straws? Unfortunately, they dissolve too soon, usually into your mouth

    Down in that part of Iowa illegal is viewed by some as more of a challenge than a restriction. I have friends from that neck of the woods. They also have a fairly nice bluegrass festival in the fall at the resort in the state park down there. The songwriter Greg Brown is also from that vicinity originally.
