"Let's have a picnic lunch in the countryside." This is easy to say nice to think about. You imagine a beautiful green field with a big tree in the middle which gives some shade from the sun. All around is lovely scenery and in the distance you can see the cows quietly eating the grass. After a meal of delicious sandwiches and raw fruit you can imagine lying in the warm sun then as darkness comes.
You strap up your basket and drive happily home.
But it doesn't always happen like this. You must not forget that flies also like raw food, that green fields are sometimes damp fields, that rain may follow the sun that peaceful cows may be unfriendly bull.
