I drive several country roads around this small town
where I live
and take photos of barns.
This is a stress buster for me
and as one of only two English teachers
at our rural high school,
I have stress.
I actually used the third photo on a post card.
The first and last ones are on note cards I made
that I haven't ordered yet.
I give them as Christmas gifts to my daughter
and several close friends
who still write 'hard copy' notes.
The first two are east of Dayton, Ohio
on Rt. 40.
There are a lot of Mail Pouch barns in this area
as the 'Barn Painter' lived in Ohio
(actually just 15 minutes from where I live).
These last two are local.
The above one is between Barnesville and Bethesda
on Rt. 147.
It is a well maintained
and it seems to be a well-loved barn.
The one below is just down a country road
near my home.
It is deserted.
I am joining The Note Card Party with Vee
which occurs the third Wednesday of every month.
