Barn Demolition Continues

Last Friday my 2 sisters and I went to Dad's farm to watch as they dis-assemble the barn. It was really interesting! It was amazing to me that they were able to remove so many huge beams without the barn collapsing. The workers assured us that they weren't concerned about walking around in the shell. Apparently there are a couple of support beams that will come out last, and then the roof will fall in.

I didn't really post any pics from last Friday. My sister, Brenda, posted a wonderful blog about our day with some great pictures. You can see them at Brenda's blog.

However, today I set out on another adventure. I was sort of thinking that they might be collapsing the barn today, so I decided to go watch. Matt told me they will probably be collapsing it tomorrow. They are trying to get everything that they can out of the barn and the siding off before it collapses. After that, it will be slower work, salvaging what is good .

I found this really fascinating today. I couldn't believe how much of a shell it is, with just the center section standing. I couldn't resist posting a few pics from today.

After watching and taking pics, I decided to go into town and warm up! It was really cold, because of the wind, at 25-30 mph. I'm sure the guys were cold, though they were dressed for the weather. So-o-o, I went to the Scrapbook store, just to look around. Right!! I just had to make a few purchases.

Of course, no adventure is complete without lunch! I stopped in at Mom's Diner, and because I'm currently in a weight loss contest with Lou and Brenda, I had a chef salad with chicken and hot tea. I can't believe, I didn't weaken and have a piece of pie!

Great Day! So sorry that I missed it. I barely recognize the barn! Way to stay focused on 10 X 10!

How about that! Those bricks are a surprise!

I think the scrapbook store would be much nicer to visit than watching the barn come down! lol

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
