…Writings of a Ghost…

July 20, 2016

…My family used to have a pig farm…

…long gone by the time I was born…

…this chalk board is still in the barn…

…the handwritten notes of my Grandfather…

…lists the numbers of pigs and their various states…

…some of the numbers are worn…

…the words are barely visible…

…been there for at least 50 years…

…we played in that empty barn..

…why did we never erase that board?…

    I love this; “why did we never erase the board.” It is interesting but maybe just like all of humanity, you just needed to remember

      Thanks. It was odd to look at it and think of all the things we did on that farm that board stayed the same. It is a very cool reminder

    Would love to hear what you think!!!
