Home Place Barn
I could have doctored this photo via the Photoshop perspective tool. I could tell you all sorts of memories of this barn.
But, on this second day of Summer 2012, suffice it to say that this is one of the four home place barns in my life. That's right. The barns on four home places -- farmsteads where both of my parents were raised and where Ed's parents were raised -- are still standing.
This is the Thangles Barn, on the farm in Wisconsin that my 91 year old father calls home. I've been in Wisconsin, visiting family, for several wonderful June summer days.
