Friday's Fences

A few years ago my husband and three of his five brothers returned to the old family farm to scatter their fatjher's ashes. He had purchased this farm in the late 30s and the six boys were raised on the farm. As young boys they helped build the sheds and fences and to work the land - a hard life for kids with little money, no electricity and few mod cons.

60 years later they returned to the old farm - now very much changed, but were pleased to find that some of the old fences had survived.
