10. What do you do when you need help building a
barn or something?
Back when we built the barn we spent, oh about six months. We spent about six months cutting
the timber and hauling it in preparing it. Then we called in our friends and neighbors and
we had us a "working." Most folks know the phrase of a barn raising or house raising.
But around here we call it a working. And for that reason it may be working corn or log rolling
or hauling or the like. But it's also a social event. At the end of the day we have us a barn
built and all our friends and family are around We celebrate that with a good, hearty meal.
