Just an Old Barn







“Inside a barn is a whole universe, with its own time zone and climate and ecosystem, a shadowy world of swirling dust illuminated in tiger stripes by light shining through the cracks between the boards. Old leather tack, lengths of chain, rope, and baling twine dangled from nails and rafters and draped over stall railings. Generations of pocketknives lay lost in the layers of detritus on the floor.”

  22. I like your header picture with the dog in the creek. I am a lover of dogs and if I could afford them I would have 3-4 right now I have a stray cat loving me in the house with him.

    My DNA (from Ancestry ) results were a big surprise to me I was sure I was mostly German with a last name Dauksch, however I am British mostly only 8 % German, It is a very interesting thing to do
