The Gateway to Freedom

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

There is nothing complicated or clever here..The rural setting and open gate to the stubble field has a very simple appeal and takes no effort to understand it!

If I were young again and a lottery winner Jim, I would like to convert this barn and live in your 'Freedom pasture'

Simple structure but classically arranged, you are the Master!

Let us follow the herd through the gate and away ~ yippee ~ to adventures new ~ pip pip

Oh, Jolly hockey sticks Nick, that's a top hole idea! may I suggest you don your green wellies to keep the cow-pats orf your corduroys! After all, if you follow the herd you are bound to find yourself in the 5h1t sooner rather than later!!

trikermike ~ LOL ~ Mike ~ I used to milk a herd of around 100 many moons ago ~ and if you have ever done such a thing you'll understand that on rare occasions a swish of a laden tail can mean that you are eating the stuff :)) So these days I keep well away from the herd and plough my own road ~
