Annnd, no clever segue to today's way-back memory, which was brought about by yesterday's post. Our new shed has filled the void in our yard left by the demolition of our barn.
Our neighbor gave us this picture of our house, which was taken in the 30's or 40's guessing from the size and style of the photo.
This is what it looked like when we bought it in 1987. I know, it looks terrible, but we fell in love with it (the possibilities, not the reality) when we walked inside.
It was a great old post and beam barn, and when the time came, a neighbor helped us pull it down with his tractor, in exchange for the beams. We reused the tin roof, and all the roof boards, so it lives on in other buildings.
Sectaurs and friend. My son is the one with the glowing white skin- the Irish/Swedish genes hit him with a vengeance! I also see a family photograhic trait showing.
