Good Night Barn

 I gotta say I like the Good Night books.  There is Good Night Gorilla and Good Night Moon, and I even read a Halloween one called Good Night Goon.  I'm sure there are others since the ones I've seen seem pretty popular with the younger crowd.  I figure there ought to be one call Good Night Barn.

Here are my submissions for Barn Charm.  I wish this Monday thing would work out better more often than it does.

Today I discovered that a couple pieces of electronics in my room were stolen.  That makes me unhappy, more so since I think they were probably gone on Friday, too.  A student called my attention to it and then hinted that they had seen it on their bus.  That would have been the day I left early to be with my Mom at the hospital.  Apparently you cannot trust people to sub for you.  I never thought I'd say that.  But, I left the door locked, so all they had to do was shut it.  I suspect, partly due to the statement of my student, that it was taken DURING class...HOW?!?!  I hate that I cannot trust the students I teach.

I called the security officer and set him on the trail...Jeez!  I hate this.

But, barns make me smile.
Oh, AAAAAANNNND I got to see the dentist.  Well, I went to get my teeth cleaned.  I like the people there, they're nice.  However, why does every dental hygienist think that they have to talk so much when you cannot answer them?  What kind of cruel person does that?  Especially when I was trying to get back home in time for Gym Kids tonight...ARGH!  OK, and you think that's bad enough?  Try this:  She knocked a piece of my filling came out.  So, it took another few minutes to get another filling put in, after he put a metal thing into my my tooth-YEEEOUCH!!...on the bright side, it was free.

Chloe made me smile with her antics at Gym Class!  I'm relaxing now with a bottle glass of wine and my beautiful wife.  All hail Tuesday!

Well if it's any consolation...your barn shot makes up for your rough start to Monday morning! Such a shame you can't trust anybody these days!!! I hear you on the dentist too! LOL

I'm terribly sorry about the missing electronics... My dad always told us kids that if someone will lie to ya, they'll steal from ya... it's a good rule of thumb.

The barn is gorgeous, esp in the snow... but what is that in the background? Rows & rows of electric poles? Never seen so many in all my life!

Is that an evening 'glow' on the 2nd shot? It's beautiful & what a spread! WoW!

Enjoy the wine & thanks so much for joining this week's Barn Charm =)

Don't worry about the extra entries, I took care of them =)))

If it makes you feel any better when I was a teacher there were classes I had that I had to lock everything in my briefcase. Pens, pencils, anything I wanted to hang onto.


The barn is beautiful.

Oh, I so love these...what is beyond that first barn?

It is to the theft. Until the past 6 years, this house was never, it is locked if we even run to the store...the front door is always locked...what a change just a few years can bring.

And the thing is, all the kids knew it was, those kids are out and gone and whole new and different bunch are around.

Ladies, THOSE are hop fields. In the spring they string twine from the ground to the wires and the hops grow up the twine, then they cut the twine at harvest and start all over the next year.

Btw, that's just what dental people do. I don't think they really want us to answer, they just want to talk. lol
