old friends

TUESDAY – AUGUST 9, 2016

Hank flew off for business and I am here hanging out with Pirate Buc!   But today, what a treat it was for me to be picked up by my dear friend Jeff Francis.  We drove to his farm near Cuba Lake, NY where I was able to see his miniature goats,  horses, chickens, dogs and a gazillion cats!!!   It was wonderful to catch up on our lives.  It has been 14 years since we last saw each other.  I was very happy to visit with his parents too, who live just down the road a short walking distance.

Jeff recently repainted this huge barn that a family wanted done ASAP for their son’s wedding.   What a perfectly delightful setting this barn is in and how pretty it turned out.  AND speaking of barns…….Jeff wrote a grant to restore the barn on his farm that was originally built in the early 1800’s.   If I recall, I think he said 1819!!!    Beautiful!!
