Just in case, snowflake, you could take a high-res photo of the barn and get a large print made that you can frame and hang on your wall.
That's a great idea!! Thank you, MerryCarey.

Left to pick up my eldest from work and 1/2 block from home get pulled over by a very handsome cop. My window was frozen shut so had to open my door to talk to him. He actually thought I was drunk!!! Just because i served a bit while doing something. Then he wanted to know if I was driving my own vehicle and when I said yes, he said wait here a min and went back to his car. Came back again and apologize, he ran my plates wrong the first time. Told me to have a nice night and I could leave.

And now I am home again.

My book is calling me so I am going upstairs
Good night everyone!!
Glad to hear your mother's blood pressure was okay, and no more driving like a maniac. I am also glad to hear he was a nice officer, sometimes they can be a little mean.

I'm not sure what to think of it since I have never done anything like that ever before. One thing I did forget to do was to put it in a catagory like General christmas or something like that where everyone can read it.
I have loved blogging here, it is a great release for me when I have something on my mind. Don't worry what others think, you are sharing with them what is important to you. I started my blog when I first joined, and was pretty much a stay at home dad. I haven't had much time the last year to blog, I need to make more time for that. I hope you enjoy it, do it for yourself. I look forward to reading it.
