Ranch Tour - Part 3

     Here she is folks, the 69 Ranch.  Located in the untamed Sandhills of Nebraska, my baby sister Glenda and her new hubby are blessed with a beautiful homestead and miles and miles of.... well... sandhills.  You can see the tiny white building that is the root cellar I featured in a previous post.

     If you look real close at the middle, left, edge of the above photo, you can see a tiny blur. Those are the chicken coops.

They need some paint and new fencing, but are otherwise very sound.  Glenda plans to turn the right one into a greenhouse at some point.  I will have to remind her to take lots of photos so she can share them.

     Here's a picture of the main house.  I can't wait to see what Glenda does with the yard this summer.  It would look beautiful with flowers along the sidewalks.

     Here's the garage and bunkhouse.  This used to be a one-room school house until Jack's family moved it here.  There are still rolled up maps and old metal lunch boxes in the closet.  I would have loved to see it back in its prime when it was filled with school children.  Now it consists of three small bedrooms, a bathroom, and kitchen/living area.  Behind this building (and I don't know why I didn't take pictures) is the other house, which currently sits empty.

     I love these old barns.  It seems like every generation that lived here added a barn to the row.  Because there are four barns, I will save the barn tour for another day.

     If you read my root cellar post, I mentioned why my sister was dressed so fashionably.  Well here are some pictures from our run.  On the way to the top I started humming the song from Rocky, so we had to take some pictures.
     Glenda was jumping for joy.  You can see her ranch behind her.

I didn't have the energy to jump, so here's my "captains" pose instead.
