From the text:
"It was Sunday afternoon."
"The afternoon sun sliced in through the cracks of the barn walls and lay in bright lines on the hay. There was the buzz of flies in the air, the lazy afternoon humming."
"From outside came the clang of horseshoes on the playing peg and the shouts
of men, playing, encouraging, jeering. But in the barn it was quiet and humming
and lazy and warm."
