The Ol' Playhouse Is Down!

I wonder if an old playhouse falls down, and no one is around to see it, does it make any noise. Yesterday, the ol' playhouse was standing. Well, let me add to that statement; it was kinda standing. More like leaning. This morning I noticed it was down. And I never heard any noise.

This used to be a shed when we first moved here, 37 years ago. Prior to that the previous owners moved it here from a farm up the road. I am told the old shed started life as a little building where the farmer placed cans of milk to be picked up. Next it was just a plain garden shed. Then finally a playhouse. Now it's just a pile of broken timbers and planking. Tomorrow it will be in the beginning stages of returning to the soil.

No, No , NO...you have to make a frame out of the sign and red painted wood and put one of Tracy's quilts in it! It's a family keepsake!
