Barnyard Bash- Y’All Come!

Filed under: Animals,Farm — Laura R @ 6:00 PM

Once upon a time there was a small farming village set high up in the hills.

Where the clouds looked like cobwebs

A quiet community where all the neighbors knew each other

and got along peacefully.

If anyone needed a helping hand there were many offered

to tie a bow or add some curls.

It was a friendly community.

One day excitement buzzed through the town.

Word of a fabulous party

It did not take long for everyone to be notified.

Word spread in all sorts of ways.

There would be  beverages,

food to suit all tastes

Cheese balls

cheese cake

 (this may be somewhere near Wisconsin)

Breakfast for those who survived

 and dancing.

Scott Gustafson, artist


This party may be getting out of hand!

It may be time to sleep it off.

Wake us for breakfast!

For more barnyard fun, visit  Lynn’s Barnyard Bash and say Howdy!

  2. Too funny-LOL! I think I live in the cob web village! The look on the cat’s face (with the curlers) says it all! And I believe I’ve been to one or two of those parties-I believe-the memories are a bit fuzzy… Thank you so much for joining the Bash, this was great fun:@)

  43. What a cute, cute post! I love all those pics and how you tied them together! 🙂 I especially love the dogs and cats using the computer. I’m sure mine do when I’m sleeping at night, for I don’t know how else my monitor screen gets so dirty! Oh, and yes, I’m sure that the cheese was from here in NW Wisconsin. My husband just brought home some fantastic aged cheddar from Burnett Dairy Cooperative near Grantsburg! 🙂

    Thank you for all your nice comments on Cranberry Morning. So nice to hear from you!
