Photo Hunt: Old Fashioned

I enjoyed the topic this week so much that I couldn’t decide which picture to choose. These three all bear special significance for me and mine.

The first pic is an old fashioned bottle opener. I’ve owned the bottle opener for a long, long time (yonks as an old friend of mine would say). I’ve carried it from place to place in my many travels over the years, always waiting for a place of my own to call home. This past year has brought many ups and downs, but one of the significant ups was the moment I secured this bottle opener to the wall of our very own new (old) home.

This is obviously an old barn. It’s a cool old building and I love the design. I enjoy it every day as I take my dogs for their run. I drive past it in my heated vehicle and they happily run right along side of me in the freezing cold.

This is an old watering trough, in an old corral, next to an old barn.
