e-i-e-i-o for Barn Charm

I normally do not join both my blogs to the Barn Charm meme that Tricia hosts, but I am so anxious to show this one that I am making an exception for it. On our drive yesterday, we happened across this barn....the first time we have ever seen it. It immediately made me think of Lorelei...she used to love Old McDonald had a farm..
I would love to know the thoughts of whoever did this...and I would like to tell them I love it!
If you have a barn, won't you link it to Tricia's Barn Charm at Bluff Area Daily? Or if you just love barns, you can go there for links to see more.

I was just sitting here thinking bout all the beautiful country and unique things we have seen in traveling the county roads going at a snail's pace part of the time. I bet there are people that have lived here all their lives and not seen any of it. I have lived here 30+ and am just now seeing it. Any time we go anywhere, we always see roads we wish we could travel down. And if we stayed in the car 40 hours a week, it would be hard to cover all the area.

Most people have jobs they go to every day, and things to do once they get home so they don't have time not energy to ramble around. I know when I worked at the orchard, I had little energy left for anything other than the things that were absolutely necessary. So, I am not being critical...just making an observation.

But if you have the time, take a round-about way going to and from things...it is fun to discover new things and places.

That sign is really charming. I have a barn photo from last summer I may link to her. I enjoy looking at them.

Oh, good old McDonald and his moo-mmoo here, his moo-moo there.... Someone has a delightful sense of humour.

You know what? I too have discovered so much about where I live ever since I started posting photos on my blogs. Isn't it fabulous?

Fun sense of humor. Looks like time for a paint party!

I love this, too. You'd think more people would have thought of it, but I've never seen it before.

I wonder if the owner's name is MacDonald?

Great photos, Rose.

This barn made me think of Old MacDonald as well. What a neat find.
I agree that there are many wonderful sights to be seen along many of our back roads.

Fabulous barn, Rose. I love its name.... Just perfect!!!!!! Someone is creative--whoever named that barn.

Yes, there is beauty all around us and we don't usually take the time to get out and see it and appreciate it.

Hugs,
Betsy

WoWoWeee! I love it, too... how'd they come up w/ that eieio... it's been sang to us since we were kids & someone finally puts it on a barn... that's so cool that you found this, Rose! YaY! =)

I'm trying patiently to wait for spring so I can go out exploring more... i don't like going in the cold... i don't really do cold that well, but spring is coming & i'll be back at it again...

thank you muches & bunches for making an exception for these barns... they're both beautiful & I love them!!! =)♥

Your barn pictures have ignited an interest in me to take some pictures of barns. I'll wait, though, until the snow melts. Love this barn, especially the e-i-e-i-o!

Mary said...

I love it too! What a clever person and I'm glad you saw it and shared the photo.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Hi Rose! Re your comment on the Colorado ranch...it is out in the middle of nowhere, and looked to me to be a lonely place!

Oh my gosh! Thank you for sending me here to see Mama Squirrel! She was such a beauty! I love that she came running to you when you opened your curtains, ate out of your hand, and finally let you pet her a bit. I'm sorry she has disappeared. I don't know how old a squirrel gets, but I'm sure you extended her life a few years by taking care of her. What a beauty... Those gorgeous oval eyes...

Definitely and "Old McDonald" barn! Great capture!
