See that man sitting down right up in front with the green shirt on? That's my daddy! He leads the barn raisings but right now the pretty lady in the black shirt is saying a prayer. We always start our raisings off with a prayer!
Today is magnificent! Not a cloud in the sky and no humidity! It's clear and sunny and just perfect! This is a special barn that we're raising today. My dad dismantled this barn about 20 years ago and it's been in storage for all this time. Now at long last - and a few repairs - it's going back up. Want to see the first bent go up! We have to caution you at the end that there's lots of applause! We don't want to hurt anyone's ears! That's my daddy yelling "lift, lift, lift!" That's the barn chant!
How did you like it? Isn't it just so exciting! We never get tired of going to barn raisings! Every single one of them is more exciting than the next!
There are a total of 5 bents (sections) in this barn. Mom and I left the raising just after bent number 3 cause Maggie stayed home. Dad says she talks too much at the raisings and he didn't want to have to try and compete with her! hehehehe
I think Maggie gets to go tomorrow!
Before we left I got to say hi to my friend Mabel. She's Greg's Bulldog!
She didn't mind me sniffing her at all! Mabel is a sweet girl!
So that's my exciting new for today! This is only my second barn raising and this time I got to stay for 4 whole hours! Maybe one day mom will let me stay for a whole day!
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
