Not An Ordinary Mother..

So, we’re on our way back from Al’s Local Union meeting in Boulder last night. We pass, for the zillionth time, the old house and barn that are sitting in a field. The house is still on a moving truck, but the barn has a severe lean to it now, that is has been sitting on the ground with no foundation. I love that barn and it makes me sad to see it deteriorating..

So as we drive by and I say my typical “I love that barn”, Maggie pipes up, “Mom, I love you!” “Why?” I say, “Well, see, you are not an ordinary mother.” “What do you mean?” I say. “Well” she says, ” You love funny things, like weeds.. and old barns and trees in the house and things like that.”

“Yes, I do.” I say.

    Hi Connie, I, too, love that barn and am concerned about it. There was a story recently in the Longmont paper that the barn has been stabilized and righted. So it’s good for now. There is, however, a dispute over ownership of the barn and the house. Such a bummer. Took the circuitous route to this blog…… via Bill Kaempfer (I work with him) via your bird blog. I live in Berthoud, am not a birder, per se, but enjoy wild birds. I have two Quakers and a bird dog (German Wirehaired Pointer) who loves the Quakers…REALLY!! Melanie
