Comments: Of Wet Cherries, Helicopters, and Blow Jobs
I was in Eastern Wa. last week and saw the cherry farms...the trees were full.
Some of the orchards had big-ass fans on towers.
I thought they were power-generating windmills, but they weren't turning even though it was pretty windy. They probably use them instead of hiring a helicopter.
The actual wind generators out by the freeway were spinning great. Those suckers are HUGE!

It's a good summer for cherries. I used to pick cherries when I was a teenager living in Yakima.

They climb ladders? Why don't they just use -- wait for it -- cherry pickers?

Just had my first Washington cherries (bings) yesterday. I'd say the crop is not quite ripe yet or there is something wrong this year. They were not as delicious as usual.
