Friday the 13th fence…


Here’s my fence for Friday’s Fences.  Perhaps it seems kind of apropos, it being Friday the 13th, that it is a fence that must have been around something back in the day but now is just standing there with nothing to do.  What happened to the farm that went with it?


I also want to take a minute to wish my beautiful daughter Carrie happy 28th birthday.  It was on a Friday the 13th 28 years ago that she was born.  Never mind that she was due on June 21.  She had to wait until the proper time.  Since then, Friday the 13th has been a special and happy day for me.  Happy birthday, Carrie!  I am so proud that you are the generous, kind, loving and creative person you have become.

Carrie these days.


Carrie a few years ago.  She was precocious but she really couldn't read yet.  At least I don't think she could.

Happy Birthday to your daughter. My sister has a 13th of the month birthday and turned 13 on Friday the 13th - very eventful day. I am impressed with how well that fence has held up considering there is nothing to really fence in.

Happy Birthday to your daughter! Like that shot! You don't often see one without the barn.

It's like the fece is saying to the silo--I'll hang around as long as you do.

And all the best to Carrie--she seems like someone who would be a great friend--kind eyes.
