A Sherman County Barn

This barn is north-west of Mom and Dad’s place a few mile.  It looks to be in pretty good shape; I’m not sure if it’s still used or not.

It was a hot weekend.  The Rancher helped a neighbor harvest winter wheat and I did “skirt work.”  Friday afternoon/evening I got the house cleaned.  Saturday I got up early to bake buns and try a new bar recipe.  Sunday I got the books updated and the check book balanced.  I worked on laundry and took a nap with my little dog.

With the Rancher out of the house it seems like I get a lot done.  I didn’t push myself, but accomplished all I needed to and a little more.

When it’s hot out we let Roxie and Fritz in the entry.  Last week I came home from work and all three dogs were in the entry together … alone and together.  I opened the door and Molly was mad.  MAD!  She was barking and all the hair on her back was standing up.  It took several minutes before she calmed down.  I don’t know what the situation was, but it must have been dramatic.  I do know when the cow dogs are in the entry, and Molly in the house, I hear a lot of moaning and groaning.  Fritz makes all kinds of interesting noises.  Then there is the occasional bark from Roxie.  Sometimes, I wonder what she is dreaming.

Now for the really good news … RAIN!  Yesterday evening/night we got 2.10″ of much needed rain.  Nothing makes a Rancher smile like a good rain with no wind or ice!

    Sherman county? I grew up in Howard county and now live in Valley county! Small world!

  6. I always tell Dustin to leave the house so I can get stuff done – much more productive that way. We got a few drops on Friday, but not nearly enough. We need like 7 days of solid rain around here.

  7. I like your barn! And I’m really envious of the rain. Glad someone is getting it!

      Thanks for stopping in Marie. Just a note, this barn belongs to a neighbor.

      We had a huge old style red barn at home when I was little. One night there was a dry lightning storm and the barn burnt down. I think I was around 10. There were several local fire departments there. It was full of straw and had some grain in it and smoldered for days and days. It was a big loss to the homestead.
