…in Williamstown, Lizz B. and I checked out a farm southwest of town and found some interesting out-buildings on a cold and somber day:
This is another one of those places which was doubtless once grand, but now its half-dozen buildings are held together by the vines which are taking them apart:
Their weathered exteriors look ancient:
…but their insides remember better days:
We got chilled to the bone, lost patience with out toes, and retreated for a heated drive to another place I know, a farm for sale below Mount Greylock:
Lizz homed in on an old truck I’ve photographed before:
…while I explored farther afield, having been told their was another grand old beast in the woods down below.
And so there was – a long lost cousin of the truck up above. They told it not to go down to the Wooly Swamp, but it wouldn’t listen, and now it’s paying for its youthful impetuosity by spending eternity mired in muck and entangled in thorns:
I do hope you children are listening!
Back at the ranch, we looked inside the larger barn to find a coven of tractors casting spells on all who entered. They made me render them in black and white:
I swear, I was powerless against their magic…
We’ll doubtless be back to this place soon.
The tractors insist!
