A "Lovely" Time Was Had By All!

This weekend a short, but "lovely", time was had with our good friends Ron and Dorothy Whiteman. ("Lovely" wasn't in my vocabulary before I met Dorothy. Now I see things differently in my world and "lovely" is the only way to describe a lot of them.)

The Whitemans moved to a (you got it) "lovely" old farm last year. They've done wonderful things with the renovation of the house and barn, keeping the place looking traditional, but updated at the same time.

While the men worked on the bathtub project, Dorothy and I strolled around the farm. The place is full of signs of their love of the land, with a little humor thrown in. A peaceful rest under the trees is not without someone keeping an eye on you!

This gorgeous bird feeder was made for Dorothy by a talented friend who's an artist too, as a retirement present. Lucky Dorothy, lucky birds!

Newman Creek meanders through their property, when it's behaving. When it's not, it's flowing over their property. There's a big difference between those two words, "through" and "over". Yesterday the creek was behaving itself, except for it's destruction of a beaver dam. If you look closely you may be able to see the break in the dam, now underwater, from the heavy rains the day before. If you can't see it...well, you'll just have to trust me on this one.

The center of most life on a farm is the barn and the Whiteman's place is no different. They've put their hearts and souls into the re-birth of their classic barn.

It was hard to say good-bye to such a peaceful place and such good people.

Next time: Meet the Four-Leggeds!
