I cannot tell you how many times my Mother yelled that at me when I was a kid. And I usually answered, "No, but I wish I was!" While I was terrified (still am) of farm animals, I loved barns. Living in the city made barns seem so quaint, almost romantic. I loved the rustic beams and the weathered wood, the gooseneck lights, the sliding barn doors...
My first barn
|You know you had one!|
I played with that thing all the time. I would put the rooster, dog and pig in the upstairs of the barn and made sure the sliding doors were shut tight. I'd have the horse and the cow pull that plastic farmer in his little tractor all around my
shag carpet fields. And of course, I'd put my finger inside the barn door and press on that "Moooooooo" button. Non-stop.
So now, Im all grown up and Im going to have a real barn and farmhouse of my own!
|Bicentennial Ohio Barn, down the street from our new place- isn't it gorgeous?|
And do you know what I need for my barn and my new farmhouse?
(no, not plastic roosters, plastic farmers or a door that goes, "MOOOOOOO")
