Painting the barn

Our 1880 barn was looking a bit faded so Tim took the painting job.... It turned out to be Murphy's Law day. The lift wouldn't level, the pressure washer died,temperatures soared to the mid nineties, and the bucket shook with each stroke of the roller. By sunset, with a side remaining to paint, Elisabeth, Tim's girlfriend arrived to help. What a sport! Elisabeth likes sheep and paints barns. She is a keeper for sure.

Brenda says I can do this blog thing

Since it is finally raining and I can't mow the pastures as I planned I will attempt to revive the blog Molly set up for me long ago. She refuses to enable me any longer and says I am on my own. Well here goes......after I look at everybody else's blogs and see what I am suppose to write about.

I just read a great book for the sheep obcessed SHEEP The remakable story of the humble animal that built the modern world. by Alan Butler If you love sheep and history you will love it.
