They say good fences make good neighbors. That might be so, but here’s a fence that stands alone, not between me and anything.
It’s not a particularly “good” fence, in that it’s not all spiffy, not something that zoning regulations would approve of.
It’s a fence that’s no better than it should be.
This is an ongoing project kind of fence. Some parts of it could be close to a hundred years old now. Some repairs are new as from this past spring.
It’s a fence that does the job.
I admire the fence for the job it does and for its aesthetic value. I admire the ranchers who own the cattle pen and who know the value of keeping up a good fence.
This fence is not between me and the ranchers. It’s a fence that ties us together.
This, my friends, is a really good fence.
