Life in the Country

My folks have a small farm (here in Rootstown, Ohio, where I'm visiting for the summer) that they've rented out since before I could remember. I do remember, perhaps 35 years ago, the last time we fixed it up. 35 years of hard labor later, and it's looking a bit rough for wear.

A renter just moved out after having been there 15 or so years, so I took the opportunity to walk around, and snapped some pictures of the decaying barn and even-worse-shape henhouse....

Haunted Tree

The “haunted tree” appears to have been quite a large tree at one point, but seems to have been cut down a long time ago, about six feet off the ground. In the years since, numerous small sprouts of tree have grown out, giving it somewhat of a haunted Don King look...
