Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate. – J.R.R. Tolkien
It’s been awhile since I’ve ventured out around the Weekend Farmgirl ranch as I’ve been spending my weekends unpacking into my new home. Today it was time to get outdoors and hike around and jump on the mule to see what treasures awaited. What a delight to find this old gate. I wonder what it held in or out during its lifetime? With its entangled barbed wire, I’m sure there were cattle involved and I’m told it is at least 80 years old. I’d love to see this treasure transformed into a glass-topped dining table for the lodge (main house) at the ranch but Pete’s trying to convince me that it can be reinstalled as a gate.
Either way, it’s going to find new life here for the next 80 years.
