Greg,

Your new office addition is great. Barn looks good to me. Just like the one my Dad had on our farm. I used to like jumping from loft to loft in the hay. One day my brother and I were doing that and we both jumped at the same time, and he was no where in sight. He had fallen through a hole in the floor below the hay.

Rich, thanks for your kind words & memories of your youth on your family farm.
I also remember when I was a kid probably 10 or 11 years of age, visiting my mom's relatives in New Brunswick.
They owned a farm with a big old barn, and they had kids that were my age.
My cousins taught me how to climb up the barns walls, and position yourself to jump down into the hay below.
What great fun that was! I bet it was 20 feet up from the hay pile below.
I think most parents today would have heart attacks if they saw their kids doing something like that!
I think mine might have as well, if they saw what we were doing.
I got away with it, because my parents were in the house visiting.
I obviously lived to tell you the tale.

Greg

I think we all got away with things when our parents were visiting in the house.

Absolutely wonderful modeling Greg and thanks for sharing with us. I have been and will be following your progress...
AND thanks guys for the walk down memory lane!! Those were good days indeed, skinned & dirty knees and lots of fresh air as we 'tried' to stay out of trouble.

Hi everyone, well after reading all of these posts, it makes me thankful that we all grew up when we did.

Bill, I'm going to need to buy more working figures, and convert them to Mennonites to keep up with that crew!

Bob Santos, provided me with a calendar to hang on the backside of Chester's office door, as suggested by forum member JeffB.
Before I had a chance to do anything with it Bill Gill brightened it up a little and straightened it out for me.
So all I had to do was print it out and hang it.
It great to have friends always willing to lend a helping hand.
Here is how the calendar looks now hanging on the inside of the office door.

Bob's calendar looks good there. Nice touch with the other page behind.

Thanks again, Bill!
I figured it would help make it look more believable if I added a couple of pages behind the first one.
