The Gate

We finally got that old gate that I bought months ago installed across our driveway entrance.  Our welder friend, Charles, took it home with him for a month or so and repaired all the rusted out spots.  I wasn't expecting to get a power opener on it so soon, but Tom got right on it, ordered it and installed it, so the gate is up and running and Harry is no longer running amok every morning down the driveway, across the road and into the neighbor's fields.  The only way he can get out now is down around the pond and through the barbed wire.  That avenue of escape will be closed off ASAP.

I'll be painting it soon - probably black, but I have to think on it a while.  I'm wanting to stay with our red/tan farm colors, but, as you can see the tan that it is now just blends in and is pretty yucky.  I'm going to test a rusty red color, but I'm planning on not liking it.

Decorative insert in the center.  We added this because of a measuring snafu.

I like the fense and also the curtains. They remind me of curtains mama (your grandmother) used to make.
