Newest residents at Barn Town

We would like to introduce to you the newest residents of Barn Town.

Please welcome Spike and Spud!

Spike

 

Holstein calves can weigh 85-90 pounds at birth and can weigh 1500 pounds when full grown. Right now each boy get one-half gallon of milk twice a day. They also have grain and fresh water available. Our two “little” boys will become steers very soon and will be raised on grass with grain and hay supplemented.  We are very excited to have Spike and Spud join our family.

Look for them in Barn Town Children’s Books soon.

Barn Town and The Two-Eyed Hurricane

cover for paperback book

(Don’t you just love Hurry’s face? Anna did such a good job of catching his true character.)

 

Dr. Jen Lowry wrote a the Foreward for Barn Town and The Two-Eyed Hurricane and a very nice review in her monthly newsletter about our new book.  Both, Anna and I thank her from the bottom of our hearts and lest I forget, so does Stripe and the residents of Barn Town.

I have attached Jen’s latest newsletter. My hope is that you will down load it, read and then sign up for her monthly newsletter.

Appreciate your time,

Hugs,

Barn Town is all up in arms with what is happening across the road. Tearing up fences and massive changes are happening to the big red barn. Are new roosters moving in; is it a new lake for the ducks and geese? What is going on? Stripe is determined to get to the bottom of this new mystery that is happening right under his nose.

No Internet

We are going on one week with no phone service or internet service. NONE!

NO T.V.! NO MUSIC! My town just slipped back 100 years overnight.

Why? Massive software malfunction by AT&T. Drive 12 miles one way for a connection. Thank you Jesus for old fashion books of paper and ink.

Oh, how I miss my Google.

Fun Facts at Barn Town

barn at Triple R-1

1 – A rooster will start crowing at 2:30 a.m. (if the moon is bright) and crow off and on until dark that night. (We presently have 13 roosters at Barn Town.)

2 – Our   Great Pyrenees will jump 2 to 3 feet off the ground into the air after hawks flying over Barn Town. Tasha will do this all day long to chase away the hawks. The hawks do leave and go fly elsewhere for a while and then return later in hopes of a chicken dinner. Repeat as needed.

3 – Geese hiss, honk, and squawk at visitors (2 legged and 4) to alert about a threat. They are better than guard dogs. (Our neighbors love us in the middle of the night when their sound carries very well.)

4 – Goats can and do jump four to five feet high to get to a limb of a tree they like so they can eat the tender leaves.

5 – Savannah, the donkey, will bray to say “Hello” to my hubby whenever he’s outside, even if he was just outside five minutes earlier.

I Saw a Starburst to Flames –

Starburst

Book Promo: 

With over 100 poems about everything from flapping ears to dancing pizzas, J.R. LaMar’s, I Saw a Starburst to Flames will take you on an out-of-this-world reading adventure. With instant classics like “My Father Is the President,” “I Am a Young Ventriloquist,” and “My Eyes Popped out of My Head” to funny re-imaginings such as “The Tortoise and The Hare,” this collection of loony works will leave you wishing there were more.

About the Author:

J R LaMar

J.R. LaMar is a 26-year-old American children’s poet who lives in Coos Bay, Oregon with his wife Chelsea and their three girls Arya, Chloe, and Hazel. He is a stay at home father and a full-time student with the hopes of becoming a teacher. His wife Chelsea works with disadvantaged children and is in recovery from a nearly fatal post-partum infection. Falling in love with children’s poetry at a young age by reading the works of  Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein, he hopes that his children will one day find the ​same joy reading his work as he did the others. They thank God each day for the ​opportunities they’ve been given.

My Take on this book:

A fun read for children and its poetry!  This is an extraordinary introduction as children begin their love affair with poetry.  The material in this book is fresh, engaging and mind stretches for the readers.  Great for giggles, cuddles and bedtime reading. I think you’ll like this book. I do.

Gloom and Doom

I need your help!

 

For those of you who signed up for the Barn Town Newsletter between December 20, 2018 and December 28, 2018, I am very sorry to say that your requests for the newsletter were lost. During the snow, high wind, and rain, the power went out as my laptop was completing its back up. I have found that everything for that time frame was lost. Everything has been done to recover the data, but nothing has worked. I am terribly sorry. If you would be so kind as to sign up again I would appreciate it so very much.
