Ruby Tuesday 03/30/2010

Here it is, Ruby Tuesday already. I did Shadow Shot Sunday and had a recipe for Monday, but never got around to it. Quite busy around Spadoville these days. But I reme,ber a time not so busy when me and the missus jumped into the car and headed off in a Westerly direction. We drove right through Minnesota and into South Dakota, veered North and found ourselves near Jamestown, North Dakota before nightfall.

It was on the return trip, back through Minnesota that we found a rural County Highway that had a scenic designation loop logo. It was in Otter Tail County, MNand it was as advertised, a beautiful scenic byway. We came across many sights. There was Inspiration Point and the town of Vining with all the sculpture. Then there was this row of home made bird houses along the barbed wire fenceposts that seemed to number in the hundreds!

I liked this vintage red barn. I have more photos from this trip, but this is the Rubt Red one that gets top billing. By the way, Ruby Tuesday is the brainstorm and creation of Mary T/The Teach, who writes the Work of the Poet Blog. You can get a list of other Ruby Tuesday participants as well as find out how you can join in on the fun.

Hope everyone has a great week.

I have a soft spot for tobacco barns and or the ones with the "mail pouch" tobacco painted on a side.
But there's no red there...

I think I'd like to lean against that barn wall and sit and watch the water awhile this morning if that's okay with you.
