One Month To Go

In less than one month, our dad will be heading to Maine for Brenda's barn raising.  He and mom and some of our friends have been working very hard to get the project completed so that the show can go on.

Our dad is coloring!   We bet you didn't know that coloring was a part of building a timber frame, huh ☺
 The "colored" beam is now out in the yard and getting its coats of finishing treatment.      
 Supervising has been long and tedious and tough but we're going to make our deadline!

And now for our snack~~
Ritz now makes bacon flavored crackers!  Who knew!

Break time is over.  Don't worry - we'll stay on them until the job is completed!

So until next time...........

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Thank you for the tip. We will see about adding those to the shopping list next week, but we are pretty certain that muzzer will recognize Teka's handwriting and be skeptical.

What the??? You just throw in the "Ritz makes bacon flavored crackers" in the end of the post like it's not that important?!? BOL It looks like you all have been very busy...and thus are deserving of some snacks and refreshment.

Hi Mitch and Molly those bacon Ritz look lovely and I am going to get my Mom to look for some. I love the Chedders that we have over here, very similar to Ritz. Mom only buys Ritz at Christmas in our house!!!! Love Treacle. xx

We can't wait to hear all about the barn raising.

Those crackers look tasty!

Angus said...

Will you be going to Maine ?

Sweet William The Scot said...

The crackers must take their color from the beams, a buttery rich color. A barn raising must be so rewarding. Lee grandmother had a 166 acre farm. It is all gone now and it is sad.
Thanks for being a friend
