The OLD Well

"Last Year on the Farm - The Old Well"
This well is hidden "at the bottom" of the land that we had for years, across Parmer Lane on the far end of the farm. Gilleland Creek runs through, beside this well, and there are some HUGE OLD pecan trees there.
Pa and Leonard (his right hand man for 58 years who shared the farm with us) would toss dead calves here to keep coyotes from hanging around...that means the well was full of old bones. I used to take my kid's respective soccer teams on midnight hay rides, telling scarey stories along the way. They were already freaked out by the time we got to the well, and seeing the bones stirred them up even more. The finale was when they were gathered around the well with flashlights, leaning over, peering down and not noticing that I was about to launch a soccer ball into the trees above them....crashing...Imagine 12 year olds in that scenario !
Please look at the website next week. We will post the WHOLE series (except the LAST 24. The paintings that are still available will be noted. There are MANY available still, and now you can claim them! God Bless you all!
