I suspected it was by how nicely the trusses were stacked... And intact!

Yes, it was CLR, so there is the silver cloud. Hope it finds a nice home!

George Harrison said "All Things Must Pass", but boo-hoo anyway. I kinda thought this little pony might be spared the Owen County cut because there is NEVER any traffic on the road. And by the way, most of the roads in Owen county are in rancid shape.

Knew it would happen soon, just hoping it wouldn't.
