Something to think about. Old is Beauty.
« on: August 05, 2015, 05:19:55 PM »
This topic could go in a lot of places.
But in SAWMILLS & MILLING Topics, we write a lot about sawing barn boards, building barns, size, looks....etc.

This 4 minute video is worth watching if your building a barn or have an old barn.
Kinda makes you think you are what you build, and how you grow old with your barn. :)
Enjoy!

The older I get I wish my body could Re-Gen.

Just spent the past two days high up on the Genie lift residing one of the old barns here on the farm.  Three boys (all under 15) helping raise the pine, and clean the mows.  Empty it will remain, but stronger than ever!!!

David,
Truly a very good post you have put up. That rings so true of everyday life, and the trials and trivial things that help shape us. It is a great thing that we all have in this old life, so use it wisely, and waste none of it!   Andy
