I found this skull in a pasture on a friend’s farm in western Kansas back in the early 70s and have kept it ever since. It made the move with me to Arizona, then to Alaska, finally settling here in Montana for the last 38 years. Like me, I doubt it will move again. That suits the house finches who nest inside it every year just fine. I’d like to find it a companion (besides the finches) for it in the form of a buffalo skull but so far have not visited the right pasture for that kind of find.

Back in the 80s sometime, I built this shed in a couple of days from a pile of used lumber, doors and windows I had acquired somewhere. It was way before we built the garage and separate workshop we have now so it came in quite handy for storage of tools etc. Now it serves mainly to hold garden tools and the like as well as a repository for various “important” souvenirs we’ve collected over the years. It’s also a good place for an occasional stint of porchin’ and of course a photo subject. The last time we had our house painted the painter asked if we wanted the shed painted as well or did we want to leave it in it’s rustic state. I guess he thought it had a lot of character. We opted not to repaint it and it has been steadily acquiring more rusticity ever since.
