Round barn, log cabin, and more...

This round barn is what originally what drew me to this place.  I don't remember where I heard about it.  It is not in my book A Round Indiana, Round Barns of Indiana by John T. Hanou.

This log cabin is at the Skinner Farm Museum, too.  It was moved there; I don't remember where it was in its former life.  And notice in the background is a brick home.  It is two stories, and is a fairly big home...and it was moved there from a few miles away!  I do not recall if the round barn was already there or if the guy moved it there, too.  I think most buildings there are buildings he moved there.

I don't know why I am showing this one...I don't remember a thing about it.  I like that it is old...I like that it is logs with the ends notched.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these.

These are from the Skinner Farm museum...a place we went to in 2016.  I have always wanted to go back but have not made it.  Not sure Roger could make it walking through it all since his stroke.

I am not sure this is the same vehicle as in the first photo.  But they were taken in this order.  and skip a couple photos for the photo below.

Over the next day or two, or three, I think I am going to re-post a few pics that I have posted before mixed in with some I haven't.  I have never seen so much old stuff in one place in my life...owned by one man!  Just look hanging and on the floor and all around...every inch stuffed to the brim.  I don't even know if a person could get in to see it...the time we saw it it was pure luck that the guy was there and saw us and came out and talked to us.

An old truck

I would sure enjoy having this in my garage.

Don't you just love the dashboard?

Swans from another day...

These were taken a while back...just have to show more shots from that day.

Isn't he beautiful?

Rainy day from 2008

I keep wanting to be somewhere when it was raining to take photos but forgot I had these...

By some other photos I have from this area, I know the sun was in and out, and yes, I think it was raining on a sunny day.

You can see the sun peeping through and at the same time you can tell the leaves are wet.

What is this?

I know what this is but for the life of me, I cannot think what it is for the life of me.

Edited to add:  Sea Oats!  That is what I have heard it called.  Thanks John and Sandra for the ID.

Sweet Hitchhiker....NOT

John caught the Creedence Clearwater Revival song title in the previous post...I often think in song titles or at the least lines from songs.  So this is another.

Grasshoppers don't creep me out or anything.  When we would walk to the barn or other places when I was kid, all sizes of grasshoppers were hopping every which way to avoid us.  And my nephew reminded me that when we were kids, we would fix a straight pin on a match stick, and use that in our B-B guns and shoot grasshoppers.

Up around the bend...

This road is part of one of my favorite drives...stay on it and you pass the orchard that I showed a photo from a while back.  Or, at the next crossroads, turn left and go down to the swamp area.

Starry, starry night....

No, not starry starry night...I seen someone say dandelions reminds them of starry nights and now every time I look at them, I think of that.  And yes, this too, was taken with my phone.

More photos from a Note 8

I couldn't believe the butterfly stayed there and let me get close enough to take a decent photo.

I was also thankful that it was a calm seems any more that the wind seldom stops.  Almost any time I try to take a photo like this, the wind is blowing.

The monster inside me....

The monster inside me got to playing with two or three pics the other night...and playing with B&W, etc....

This is filtered...I think using red.

This one is Holga-ish...notice the edges of the photo.

And then there is this...I mistakenly clicked on something.  I forget what now....but it is my favorite.  You can tell this photo is taken through the windshield if you look closely.    Where this was taken, there is hardly any traffic.  I do not even do this if there is an on-coming car or if there is one behind me.  I may go 10-15 miles and only see one car.

Stages from a Note 8

I meant to tell that the lilies in yesterday's post were taken with my Samsung are the ones in this post.  I have been so pleased with the photos from it.

I could not narrow down to just two or three photos...don't you just love the kind of strange colors combination in them.  The colors of the petals just as they begin to get color against the green of the leafs is pleasing to me.

and love to watch them as they gradually open...

And become a full-fledged beauty...

Asiatic lily...

Another color has begun to bloom...the ones up close to the house are simply loaded with blooms.

Barbwire or barbed wire?

I have crawled under/through many of them, and torn a few holes in my clothes by doing so.

I have always loved stone work...always loved stones.    And I love 'looking thru' shots.  Hope you like this one.

Little red truck....

I don't know anything about this was seen at Arthur.  I felt it was made recently, but now I wish I had looked for the ticket on it to see if there was any information.  Notice it has the little vent glass....I often wish vehicles still had these!

A revisit to Pine Creek

The following photos are from 2007....

First a couple of the bridge...

I would love to go back..

Just think it is over 90 years old...

We always wanted to go back and find a place to get in the creek and wade and fish but never made it.

 Believe it or not these were taken in June of that year...

An old post...when Delta met Charlie...called Delta In Love --in August of 2017

Meet Charlotte, aka Charlie.  Our daughter that owns Delta got her this weekend.  Delta loooovvveees her... (this was back in Aug of 2017)

Here she stalks Delta from the back of the couch.

Delta checks her out...she has to make sure she is okay.

You might have to expand this to see that Charlie is between Delta's front legs...

Look at them....don't you just love it!  Charlie has no fear of pouncing on Delta...

My daughter lives in the St, Louis area.  She sent me this photo earlier this evening.  They have been experiencing storms.  This is her dog, Delta, who does not like storms.  So my daughter places this quilt in the corner of her sectional....then Delta comes and sits and looks at her till she comes and sits with her.

Notice on the back of the couch is her kittie, Charlie.  (short for Charlotte)  They are best of friends, and chase each other through the house.  And they sound about like a herd of horses.  Charlie, will run along the back of the couch and reach and get Delta, or jump on her.

Photo overload

These photos were taken on the same day as the photos in the previous post.   We have never been able to find it again.  I had not even remembered the barn in the previous post, but the place shown in these photos....I think about it often enough.

I am just showing them in the order they were taken.  Notice that the chain is locked on the dog.  There was another dog, looked like at least part Goldern Lab, with a chain and lock just like this one.

And I always remember the dark colored horse.

Notice the chain....that is the chain that the dog is locked to.  There were posted signs everywhere....I wonder did they have a lot of trouble with trespassers, or were they trying to hide something.
