Just a Little Something I Forgot
As I was looking through the archives of all my past posts ignoring the laundry and dishes pilling high behind me completely aware of my surroundings, I noticed I had forgotten about this very important post dated July 21, 2010.
See this tractor?
Well, if I put this post on, I would have told you all about this tractor needing a home or a barn.
Specifically a POLE barn. I think that simply means a barn with a pole in it.
But, anyway, the barn was built. Bill, both Georges and Tommy...built a barn made out of poles that will last well over a 150 years and this barn will hold a tractor.
If I put this post on, I would have mentioned the intense heat last July. I would have also mentioned how cool the barn was on the inside when the doors were left wide open.
I would have told you how the wind would blow through these large doors cooling everything in it's path. The wind brought everyone much relief.
I would have told you all about Tommy, my brother's friend, working on the roof in the 105 degree July heat and how he really just didn't seem to mind. I think he was just happy to have work.
I would have mentioned to you that Matthew
and Stephen painted this pole barn in the intense July heat. I would have mentioned how the boys came home dripping in sweat and how exhausted they were, not only from the days work, but from the intense Southern July heat.
Did I mention the month was July and we live in the South and IT WAS HOT! It was really, really hot!
But, I didn't mention any of it at all. The whole event just slipped by me. It wasn't that I didn't think any of this was important. I simply forgot to go back to the sight with my camera and get a new picture of the now RED barn. So how could I have posted?
And then of course, I didn't want to hear Matthew say, "Wow, your finally putting that stuff up?" Like he just said today. Stupid Matthew!
