I was riding around looking the country over this morning when this old fence post caught my eye. It brought back some of the memories of trying to keep your fences up and the cows in. It looks like a tree limb was brought from home to prop up the fence till you could get a new one.
Most of the old original post were made out of cedar which is hard and doesn’t rot easily. This one had lost its wire but not its character.
As I went on down the way I found this group of post had been washed out over the years, but still had the barbwire holding them together. You can see the new type of fence that has been installed to replace it. Not many new cedar post fences being put in any more.
This is closer to what the original post looked like when they were new. The outside is cracked and aged, but it still gets its job done. This is a testament to how the people of the area have fared while seeing it become what it is today.
Well enough of my rambling, but I do believe life is what you make of it along with the scares life sends our way. Have a good Forth of July and remember those who helped make it happen. John Tucker
