Thought I'd show you guys a quick picture of my personal gift from me to My Mom.

This last fall, they finally sold the Family Farm where my Mom was raised. The kids had a good life there and it was nice to go visit My Grandma and Grandpa. Many fun hours playing with my cousins there.

Anyways, Before the farm was sold, I had a opportunity to remove something from the barn. 2 of the hand carved wooden Dowels that my Mom used to hang her Horse Tack on. Ryan and I remounted them in an old board, Satin Clearcoated, and put on a small "plaque".
