The Old Barn is in a Sad Pile

The old barn that has so many stories that it holds secret.April3_2016The old barn, that isn’t mine, but that I watched the sun rise as a back drop to the barn … yeah, that old barn.  Apr3_2016 Sunrise

The old barn that is a landmark. You know? I live just west of the old barn right off the Clarksburg blacktop.

The old barn that someone salvaged some of the barn wood from. So, it’s memory will live on in new ways. In the wood, but also in my pictures.Apr3_2016 Barn_Down

In other photo updates, some kind people have asked about George. DSC_0290

George is still cute (in my opinion), and curious.  Get it?  Curious George?GeorgeAndSteaks

Just wait until tomorrow and you see what Bubbles, the adorable, has been up to.  She is sure to bring a smile, an “awwww,” and maybe even a Monday laugh.

    Old barns are so special… is this one being demolished.? Or did it just fall in from old age? Can’t wait for tomorrow’s post!

    • Kind of both. It has been slowly caving in. I noticed someone removing boards, presumably with permission from the owner. After many boards were removed, it collapsed. Maybe it would have happened anyway. Our spring winds have been fierce.

    We have”that old barn” too as a landmark…everyone knows where or what direction from whenever they here those words in the form of direction.

    Great photos of the old barn. I’m glad someone got a little bit of history in the repurposed lumber.
    George is adorable, and so is Bubbles.
    This made me smile.
    Have a great week my friend!

    I love old barns as well. There is one close to us here that has collapsed since we moved and it makes me sad every time I pass it. George is bumping the goats out of competition in cuteness, btw. Happy Monday—because it is Monday already. Ugh.

    The owner should get on Craigslist or a restoration/renovation list of some sort and sell the rest of that old barn wood. Shame for it to be gone. I always enjoyed it in your photos.

    • I am wondering if the person that has been “harvesting” the wood will be back. I’ll keep an eye on it.

      • says:

        For sure, keep an eye out. What if the harvester didn’t pay the farmer for the wood. Now, both the farmer’s barn and your view have tumbled to the ground.

    I like the sunrise peeking through the barn in your header. I’m glad some of the wood is getting a new lease on life.
