Old Barns

The Beauty in Old Barns
I must admit that I really like old barns. Any time we are driving around the country I keep my eyes peeled for old barns, and when I can, I take a picture.

These barns, made of sawmill wood, will soon be a thing of the past. New barns to replace these olden masterpieces are simply not being built. Today it is cheaper and more convenient to put up a metal building to take care of farm needs. Also, these old concrete silos will soon crumble to be no more, and they too will not be rebuilt.

If you like old barns you’ll like this video that is filled with pictures of old barns…

Old Barns and Old People
This next video tells an interesting story about a city man who visits a farmer to buy his old barn, so he can use the wood as paneling in his new fancy home.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
There are times that I just like to be alone with myself. It gives me an opportunity to talk to myself and beat some sense into my stubborn head. I don’t like to beat up on myself when others are watching.

Joke of the Day

A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph 's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"

The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number of the patient?"

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said,  "Norma Findlay, Room 302."

The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow."

The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good news."

The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me anything."
