Lock the pigeons in

Eddie wanted to get to the 9News Health Far to get a blood draw even though he really needs a brain draw but doesn't have any to spare. That's like trying to polish the old black iron kettle. I had my camera and followed him around for the day; we take different pictures anyway. Today and all through March and April were are enjoying over normal temperatures if we can happen onto good skies. I needed this to add to my Openings Photoset.


Here we have a door on the High Plain's Grifter's barn east of Boulder in Weld, county. For some reason, probably zoning, left this old landmark barn in the midst of development. Everybody assumes that Coloradan's won't particularly need food in the future but we can always use more people. Here in Colorado, where water conservation districts scream about low snow fall and conservation is required but really mean they have more mouths and lawns to water and it's going to them, agriculture has little prospects of feeding residents. I expect it will sit here until the development managers decide how they can justify getting rid of it. Or wait for kiddies from Colorado's less than greatest generation to torch it. They have already plunked all the windows and the pigeons come and go at will. Hey, kinda like Mickysoft; they fooled me again that Windows 7 is not just bloated with new pigeons. You can walk through doors but you have to crawl under (Bill) Gates. Well both have bird droppings all over. I would not stack any bets on the longevity of this imposing structure on Colorado's formerly agricultural high plains. Maybe WallyMart can build here and ship the structure to China? They still do agriculture over there along with their steel mills and Fox-Con.
