Long term readers will know that I've been scanning thousands (3000+ at last count) of slides into digital format for my parents over the last five or six year, even I have lost count. I sometime go for weeks or even months between sessions but this last time, it was almost a year since the last time I scanned anything. A lot of that has to do with my winter project being an office remodel which makes it hard to do such work not to mention, a project like scanning is mostly done during the winter when I have no other projects going.
However, with my mom's diagnosis and many many boxes of slides yet to touch, I felt the urge to do some more scanning whenever I get a chance. I don't know where these photos were taken but they were taken somewhere along the northern tier of states while my parents were riding across America for the third of four times. It reminded me of the adage "good fences make good neighbors" because someone really went all out to create this fence. I would think the labor wouldn't justify the longevity because eventually the wire will rust out as well. I have put in hedge posts that have lasted almost as long as the wire did, especially with animals involved.
