When dad was 15 years younger he did ride in a sling seat while the crane lifted him up, up, up and the purpose was to put a rooster weathervane on the biggest barn that dad has ever worked on to date! This barn just happens to be in Northford, our hometown and the barn is 90 feet long and is FULL of books! You wanna talk about a good smelling barn! The barn belongs to a man named Elliot!This is Elliot's book barn! It's an AWESOME barn!And here's the rooster weathervane that dad single-handedly put on top of Elliot's barn in 1992. Notice the copper roof! Dad and a buddy of his laid out and soldered this copper roof all by themselves! Copper roofs are a lot of work but they're so beautiful when they're shiny and new and they're even more beautiful 10 years down the road when they're bronze-colored with green highlights, like a weathered old penny!Back to Maine - here's a shot from inside the barn looking up into the cupola!
Gosh, all the barn needs are the doors and windows and it'll be all set for it's first snowfall and in Maine, that's not too far away!
Our dad will be home today around noon and the word is we're having pizza for dindin! We can't wait! We've missed you, dad!
So until next time.................
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
