Sad Things

It's not my story to tell, but there's no getting around the fact our little barn family has changed in a big way.

EC lost her husband quite unexpectedly last week. Our barn family is all heartbroken, not just over the loss of such a big part of the barn, but for the huge hole he leaves in the lives of EC and their son.  He was one of those guys that was in the background, but always around, usually working away cheerfully. Sometimes with a kind word for you, more often a super witty observation to which the only response could be laughter. Give your loved ones a hug, and always let you appreciation for good people and good deeds be known...you never know when the conversation it feels like you just had might be the last.

With that in mind, I'm further embracing a 'whatever will be, will be' attitude for the 2017 season. We love EC and will let her tell us what she wants to do and when.
